Eureka villas is a decent place.The major plus point is its location- close to the Royal palace, museum and a short walk to the River side area. We stayed here for 4 nights.Our room, on the ground floor (close to the reception) was huge and clean but not really cosy.Breakfast was very ordinary and nothing to rave about.The tuk-tuk drivers who wait outside the hotel charge quite a bit for even a short distance (2-3 USD for less than 5 minute ride ). That's ridiculuous! But if you haggle outside with other tuk tuk drivers, they agree for 1$ usually
So, the manager was not really helpful with his advice on taking the tuk tuks from outside the hotel. He said that a trip to Killing fields and S-21 Prison would cost us 15$ USD. We then enquired with another tuk tuk guy & he was more than willing to take us to both places for 10$(I'm sure we would have gotten it even for 8$).When we asked the manager about the mekong cruise,he said that the 1 hour evening cruise would be the best option and its very beautiful as the sun sets right behind the palace. But let me warn you, its not the most scenic cruise if you have been on others. The Mekong waters are murky and the area around the Sisowath Quay is not exactly pretty/calm since there is a lot of construction happening all around and we saw no pretty sunset...
They could do better!
