sure the location (not in a posh area) is convenient. You are in the midst of nightlife, average to fine dining restaurants,the central market, a mall and even a local wet market - phsar kendal which is active during the morning . the vendors sell all kitchen requirements and a walk through this market gives some insight into the khmer food range.
the staff are hard working and well motivated and despite working long hours are always ready to attend to guest needs.
the breakfast is freshly prepared according to one of the three options, with minor variations to suit people with special needs ( not medical) like vegetarian. Not luxurious but a good starter with freshly squeezed orange juice, tea or coffee, eggs to order and french bread of toast.
at first sight the guests get the impression that the building is not elderly or invalid friendly but there is an access to the lift through the ground floor which is currently being used as a garage.
guests with heavy luggae may use this access to the lobby and to their rooms from there.the normal access to the lobby area is via a flight of steps which are definitely challenging for the elderly to climb.
there are many other similar kind of accommodation properties around this place but this hotel is way above in terms of cleanliness and resonse to client need.
good wi-fi connection (including the rooms) is an additional asset,
good for families.
my only wish is that the bathroom be fitted with a shower curtain as the whole floor tends to get wet while a person is having the shower and locate the towel rack near to the shower area.
