Upon arrival at the entrance of the hotel, you would wonder what a small compound the place is or if you even arrived at the right place! But as you walk in, you are taken to into a oasis..away from the dusty/buzzing street of Phnom Penh. Its front facade is a preserved building and the rooms, pools are hidden away from the first look. If u want a hotel with 2 pools this is the place to be! Layout of room was spacious and modern (it a open shower...just in case you need privacy do book those with closed showers). The breakfast spread was diverse , not massive but enough hearty for a meal.
If you want R &R, get a cabana (or Sala) next to the pool and chill, order a passion fruit mojito and you will feel the bliss of lounging at the pool. If you need to work on yr laptop, the hotel has wonderful WIFI connection and power sockets even outdoor at the cabana! If you want Khmer food, its not on the pool side menu, pls ask the hotel staff and they will give recommendations and prep it in the main kitchen...the Fish Amok is pretty amazing...
Location is great, near to royal palace, street 178 and riverfront. Only mini spoiler...while checking out..there was numerous charges for local and overseas calls...I would assume a hotel shld do check before blindly billing customers, so pls check yr bill at check out. Nonetheless would high recommend this place, I would stay here again if I am in PNH.
