We made the journey from Siem Reap to Phnom Penh by bus but when you arrive at Phnom Penh the bus station is quite a way out of town. When you step off the bus you get swarmed by tuk tuk drivers and taxis. We paid $3 for the trip to Eureka Villas.
Phnom Penh is a really busy city especially compared with Siem Reap but Eureka villas is a small hotel that is slightly out of the madness but in a really good location. The Golden Palace is on the next street and the promenade a short walk past the palace.
Eureka has a reasonable sized pool for a city centre hotel. We had a good spacious room (number 13) with a king size bed, shower room, complimentary water, coffee and tea, hair dryer etc and a choice of cooked breakfasts in the morning that I found very satisfactory and set us up for the day. It was also very clean.
The staff are really helpful and cheerful.
There are tuk tuks outside the hotel and you can agree prices quite easily. We hired one for the day for $15 and we were taken to the genocide museum, the killing fields (a good half hour drive away) and a drive around the sights of Phnom Penh.
I would definitely return
