The pool is the highlight of this hotel, it is beautiful. We had a real issue with Mosquitos when we were there despite using a lot of repellent - even in the lift - perhaps the pond at the front may be an issue? There are mosquito nets on the beds which we used so that was good. We had a horrible view because of construction works outside (which we were compensated for with a free drink each night - a nice gesture). Room cleaning was also a bit hit and miss and the pillows are pretty flat. Breakfast appeared to be understaffed but the quality of the food was good. Overall a nice stay but I think our expectations were heightened and therefore the stay was good but not great.

Room Tip: Try to get a pool view room

Dear Guest,

I am very sorry you were troubled by the mosquitoes. We are fogging once a week and all our ponds have fish eating mosquito larva. Usually there are not too many, sorry it was bad when you were here... Cheers, Alexis

Our second visit to the city. Good location to walkabout the district, central to most places.
Poolside breakfast was excellent. General ambience & atmosphere very pleasant.
Had lunch & dinner in house...of good standard.
Highly recommended for repeat stays.

Great location right behind the Royal Palace. Lovely big rooms and a pretty swimming pool (although it does lose the sun in the afternoon). Great breakfasts and helpful, friendly staff. Would be very happy to return. If you are around for lunch, try the melon gazpacho - delicious.

In the heart of Phnomh penh can be easily missed.

Lovely hotel with monkeys appearing on the restaurant roof pinching mangos!

Lovely relaxing pool area
Good food in the restaurant and lovely helpful staff all round.

Only downside is that there is a fishpond in the front which at night attracts mosquitos which bite.

Also dont want to say this but I was bitten on both lower legs many times while asleep

Probably my fault as I used no repellant.

Dont let this put you off though.

Enjoy.

i stayed here with friends for 2 nights and it is a very good hotel. It has a fabulous large swimming pool and a lovely area to have breakfast. It is in a good loaction with close walking distance to good restaurants and shops. The rooms are large with big comfortable beds. The only negative comment I would make is that the doors can be difficult to unlock but other than that it is a great place to stay..

Me and 2 male chums had a great stay here at this great value hotel, nothing is too much trouble for the staff from checking in with the welcome drink to checking out and printing our visas etc at no extra cost.

The guys on reception arranged for a private tour driver to take us to Killing Fields etc at great value and arranged our transfer to Siem Reap.

The hotel is very clean and tranquil when you go from busy madness to complete calmness.
