We have spent only 1 night at Sofitel as our stay in Phnom Phen was very short. Anyway it was quite enough to get a clear idea about this hotel.
It is really a top quality hotel and I do recommend it as the fantastic option if you come to Phnom Phen. It is really an island of calm and tranquility in this very noisy and disturbing city. Besides, it is not overpriced at all: we have paid USD 220 for the luxury room with a balcony facing the river. The room was perfect with all the necessary attributes of the hotels of this level.
The sunset and the sunrise over Mekong river are fantastic. Don't miss the chance to see it yourself when you are in Phnom Phen and ask for the room with a balcony : it is worth paying a little more for it...
The location is not very central but in this case it is an evident advantage: the downtown of Phnom Phen is so noisy and disturbing that it is better to stay aside.
It takes around half an hour to get to the airport from Sofitel but it was early morning and the traffic was not as heavy as it could be. I do recommend to ask for the taxi in advance as it can take around 15-20 min for the staff to arrange it.More
