As a semi-regular visitor to Phnom Penh, I knew about the Plantation but had never had the opportunity to stay there. This changed on my last visit - and I have to say, it is the best place I have stayed in Phnom Penh. It is stylish, comfortable and is professionally run.
The rooms are more than comfortable, with an open plan bathroom, a very cosy king size 4-poster bed, and both a ceiling fan and a/c. The best part of the hotel, however, is the outside pool area. The pool is large allowing for laps and the salas that surround the pool are stylish and comfortable.
Breakfast is typical of hotels in the city, but is more than adequate. While I didn't eat any other meal there, I did sample the evening cocktail menu - the house cocktail, the Plantation is well worth a sip or two!
The Plantation is in a great location - a short tuk tuk ride or slightly longer walk from great shopping and eating locations (178 Street and 240 Street), and is run by veryu friendly and professional staff.
After quite a few trips to the city, I have found a hotel that really suits. Highly recommended!
