We travelled here on the 15th August 2012 and stayed four days. It was our first time to Cambodia and we liked it so much that we stayed longer and pushed our travel plans to Thailand further back. Having travelled to Phnom Penh from Ho Chi Minh we were met after our coach journey by a tuk tuk driver named "Lucky." We were recommended the Silver River hotel so we decided to go and have a look at this hotel but we did not promise anything, We were pleasantly pleased with this hotel and its low prices. The rooms are clean and had free complimentary water,fridge and tv. The hotel can boast of an excellent restaurant that serves local cuisine and western food. We ate out alot and found Cambodia to be much cheaper than Thailand. The food portions were so generous. Happy hour was great at the hotel and cocktail drinks where so cheap to buy. The staff were friendly and trustworthy here, they all wanted you to enjoy your stay in Cambodia.
We hired the same tuk tuk driver for our four day stay. Our driver was safe, the tuk tuks don't go as fast as the Thai''s. We arranged for Lucky to take us to The Killing Fields and S21 where we met two survivors. Lucky also took us around Phnom Penh to see other attractions, we hired him for the whole day so he waited for us after each excursion. At all times we felt totally safe.
Cambodia is still virtually new to tourism so the people and country are refreshing, wonderful and welcoming. We will be returning and we would not hesitate at staying at this hotel again.
