Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra
Ranked #5 of 272 Hotels in Phnom Penh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 20, 2014

The Sofitel is a bit removed from the hub of Phnom Penh (the riverside) activity but nothing is far in Phnom Penh, so worth the slight distance. I love this hotel nothing to complain of. I stayed here couple of times during my bussiness trips and all of the time it just make it easier for me to stay.

We stayed here on our last night in Phnom Penh having stayed at the beginning of our holiday at the Sunway Hotel. We wished we had stayed here instead. Sunway Hotel needs to up their game.

The bedrooms were spacious and we had a lovely bathroom with two sinks for him and her. A walk in shower with two shower heads (take your choice) and separate bath with shower. We had every available toiletries you could want for. The bed, pillows and bed linen was of the finest quality and we had a great sleep.

We had a snack by the pool in the late afternoon and this arrived promptly. The pool is very long and warm and there were excellent sunbeds which were very comfortable. Lots of brollies.

Breakfast was amazing. Especially for me to find gluten free bread and cookies which was a great bonus as I had run out of my own bread. Lots of hot and cold choices and even a juice bar where they make your juice fresh for you.

Only downside was the location of the Sofitel which is not near to any restaurants. We wanted to walk to the river front restaurants but found it to be further than we thought so ended up getting a tuk tuk half way there. Tuk tuk was only 3 dollars but get outside of the hotel.

They are building a new shopping mall next door and this will be open either later this year or early next year. There are also a few building works going on around which did impact on the pool area

Room Tip: Stay here if going to Phnom Penh. Rooms just great.

One of the most beautiful hotels I have ever stayed. The lobby will take your breath away with its French architecture. The rooms were big and comfortable. The breakfast however was a bit downer with repetitive menu and very limited options for vegetarians. Also the Staff was not very conversant with English and hence needed to repeat everything atleast twice. Anyways will surely stay here again.

Traveling on a 5 country, 12 city trip over 16 days we stayed at quite a few hotels. We picked some real losers including our first choice in Phnom Penh who will remain nameless. When a cockroach ran across my Boss' bed it was time to check out! THANK GOD for the Sofitel!!!! Not only did we find the people welcoming, the facilities spotless and two world class restaurants but they kept me from getting fired for booking the first place!!!

In all seriousness, the rooms are world class and the service beyond compare. I am going back every time I am in Phnom Penh and I recommend highly that everyone should.
