“Quiet & Classy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

We moved here after staying at the Blue Lime for a few nights. We were very happy with the rooms as well as the service. The pool is very nice. Breakfasts very good. Highly recommend this hotel! I could go into detail, but there is no need. It is a good hotel, in a good location! I'm glad we were able to get a room on such short notice! We were fortunate!

- consistently friendly service
- beautiful rooms and an immaculate pool
- great selection for the breakfast buffet

You won't be disappointed with this hotel- you couldn't fault it. Our friends saw the hotel and moved to stay at ours as well. The only downside is it left us with unrealistic expectations for the next hotel in another province and we were disappointed! Can't wait to stay at Plantation again on Friday.......

Overall, 10/10.

I was staying at The Plantation for 1 night. The staffs are very helpful and can speak quite good English. I also booked the hotel airport transfer at acceptable rate ($12 one-way) The driver was at the arrival hall before I landed at Pnompenh Airport. (Please note that you will pay the airport transfer fee directly to the driver)

The hotel location is in a walking distance to Royal palace, national museum and for about 10 mins walk you will reach the river side.

The highlight of this hotel is a large outdoor swimming pool, you will love to float in the pool look up to sky of Pnompenh sunset. Don't miss it.

Hotel room was very clean and new, I stayed at the 1st floor (separate building) My room has no balcony but it's 10 m. from the pool. Air conditioned, TV, Hot shower. Everything was perfected.

This hotel is just behind the Royal palace. Being a place to sleep I will start by saying that beds are comfortable with nice duna and pillows and quiet rooms. The welcome was friendly at reception , the featured photo on trip advisor does not look great but hotel is better than on the picture. The swimming pool is very nice, the restaurant close to it is where you take breakfast , excellent breakfast, fee wifi in our package , nice green suroundings inside the hotel , what else do you need?

The Plantation is a cosy boutique hotel right in the middle of Phnom Penh. I stayed two nights in a second floor room. The room was clean though a little tired. It did not have a view but the rest of the hotel made up for this. The pool and public areas are chic and the calming. Lots of vegetation endorsed this as a real oasis against the heat and hassle outside. The food was good and I would recommend the smoothies. The staff spoke adequate English and were cheerful (a Cambodian trait) and helpful. I would have stayed longer but the hotel was fully booked.

Room Tip: Ask for a pool view room. The other side has nothing sepical to see.

The Plantation is a fabulous hotel right in the heart of the city, in a lovely colonial complex. The rooms are fabulous, clean and well kept. The pool is great, with excellent sunbathing areas. Both restaurants were lovely - breakfast was a good spread, and the meals on offer were generally of a high quality. The staff were extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting the city.

I'll report the only negatives we experienced first, since there were only two and they're rather minor.

The first is the location, which is just a bit desolate at night, but no big deal really--if you are staying here, a tuktuk is nothing to you.

The second is the hot water, and the shower hardware. The hot water is incredibly hot, and it gave me first degree burns on my neck and head nearly immediately. This happened due to my own clumsiness and also because our shower head had to be precariously balanced in order to deliver, well, a shower. Could be quite dangerous for children or other slightly clumsy people like myself.

Now, the good:

The staff were awesome, smiling and helpful despite our near ignorance of Khmer. They treated us like royalty. The grounds were sumptuous and the food quite good (if not exactly excellent). The room was cleaned immaculately every day, was spacious, comfortable, and tasteful. Our view wasn't exactly interesting, but still managed to be aesthetically appealing.

The on site spa was a welcome treat after a day of sweating throng the phnom penh streets. The pool was exquisite--it was so pleasant to enjoy the little cabanas with my partner nd a couple drinks.

Overall, the value for the money was incredible--it seemed drastically underpriced.

I would totally recommend this place to anyone eyeing it, unless money is no object. In that case, go stay at levmeridien for five times the price and maybe enjoy yourself a bit more.

Room Tip: Our room was fantastic and it wasn't a special or superior type. I expect they are all quite go...
