I have stayed here for 3 months total since October during various visits, and I wouldn't stay anywhere else. The owner is a great guy, and the entire staff goes out of their way to help you with any needs. They are friendly and helpful, and willing to put up with a lot. Lord knows I stumble in there drunk and wake them up to let me in at least 3x a week, yet I am still greeted with a smile, even after having to wake him up.
The prior review by Mark, I disagree with wholeheartedly. I don't know what he is expecting for 15 dollars a night. The room is clean. Spartan, but clean nonetheless. There is a flat-screen tv with many generous Western Cable channels, a closet, a chair and two tables. In regards to the room "smell", I am going to say he is mistaken. I have stayed in the same room most likely, being that I have been in nearly every room. I generally stay in 202 or 203 as to be as close as possible to the Wi-Fi router. The bathrooms smell like bathrooms. Maybe not the smell of a 5 star hotel bathroom, but if you have spent much time in Southeast Asia, you would understand that the bathroom set up, where the shower runs on the floor, not a separate shower as is traditional style here is how buildings are made. There is no smell that you speak of.
The location is nearby proximity to some girly bars...true...but so is a large portion of Phnom Penh. Any area with restaurants, bars, and other positives for a traveler in Southeast Asia will not be far from girly bars. You also are very close to Riverside, which is the most desirable location in PP.
I also have not encountered dust in the rooms.
People always want to post negative reviews of places that do not deserve it. I believe that to be the case here. I highly recommend this place, for the price (15 dollars) I would have a hard time believing there is a better place in the city.
