Reviewed August 2, 2013

Stayed in this hotel as a walk in.
We were travelling with our 3 children and got two rooms on the top (3rd) floor. Had one riverfront room ($45) and a triple room ($25). The Triple room had no widows but as the kids were in there, we were happy with this.
Others have mentioned that it is a climb up the stairs, our children (11/13/15) had no trouble lugging their bags up, however if you were challenged by stairs, this may be an issue for you.
The room overlooking the river was particularly pleasant. A small balcony allowed you to sit out there and watch the chaos of the traffic along the waterfront, as well as the other activities in the parkland. As an early riser, watching the sunrise over the river was brilliant.
The room rate included breakfast downstairs.
A safe was in the room, however the instructions werent that clear, and for the first time ever I had to get the staff to open it for me (which they did with a smile).
There are numerous restaurants and bars along the riverfront and this is a great area.
The check in at the hotel was also able to organise onwards bus ticktets for us.
Definately would stay again and recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the river have a great outlook. Worth the few extra dollars.

Previously I have stayed away from the river but this time chose this place so I was right in the center of activities. I stayed in a $45 room and it had a balcony looking out to the river.

The hotel is situated close to a nightlife area but you don't even have to see it unless you go down the side street.

Restaurant was good and the "half" breakfast that comes with the room was more than adequate.

Room Tip: The standard rooms seemed very small whereas the deluxe rooms are good size.

Very fast check in, even though the first staff led me to the wrong direction. The room was small but clean. It could be noisy in the evening with the bar downstairs, but quiet at night.

The hotel is ideally located along the riverside with plenty of good restaurants from different cuisines at very reasonable price. Then you may find numerous bars for party.

Booked a standard room through booking.com & the photos are misleading since they are off deluxe room. Upon arrival we came to know that standard room was like a broom cupboard without windows. The AC was just cooling the room enough & had to be left on 24/7 even when we were out since it would take time to cool again.
Bathroom amenities were non-existent not even a soap to wash hands was given. We were 2 of us but had to go down & ask for extra towels etc since the phone was there but of no use.
There are steps in this hotel & were offered no help in carrying luggage.
There are lizards roaming the corridors & their noise was very loud during the night.
Receptionist were always seen watching youtube or on Facebook or chatting on their computer. At night we found the receptionist sleeping in the store room.
Upon asking to shift into the deluxe room we were told everything is sold out till our check out date, which was not true since we saw the rooms being serviced by housekeeping & they were empty.
TV was the size of a small LCD monitor which caused pain & strain to our eyes.
The only good thing is its location on the quay but later while walking around we found lots of other better looking, newer hotels around.
If possible avoid the standard room only deluxe room is worth booking.

Room Tip: Book only deluxe category. Standard category has no windows.

I requested a non smoking room in 1st floor. Instead I was given a room with no view in the 2nd floor. I have to climb 42 steps and walk another 20 steps with my luggage to get to the room.This hotel has no non-smoking rooms all the corridors smell of smoke. There are no porters to take the luggage to the room. There are no lifts.
There is no room service, no coffee and tea making facility, no massage service , no laundry, no travel arrangement facility. Most of the time there is no body in the reception during day and night.

Room Tip: Rooms on the river side has good view but will be very hot during day due to direct sun. There are...

i flew in from Bangkok.the hotel taxi was there awaiting me.and from that point on, all went 100% stress free.this hotel is perfectly placed.the manager and receptionist are extremely polite, sociable, helpful & English speaking,and a pleasure to spend time with.the food is excellent offering a wide choice of euro/cambo..on this occasions i was Not looking for swimming pools or glittering palace's. i wanted a good budget hotel that i could recommend to our world wide clients that sometimes also wish to visit Cambodia.this one is very recommendable.
there are a choice of several types of rooms.single occ. or couple very cheap and comfortable! or larger for a family, again cheap and even more comfortable with great views of the river and its host of large & small boats..the young ladies who clean are very efficient and welcome you each morning with a lovely smile!this location is ideal for seeing reality Cambodia,
its on your door step.the streets although extremely safe ,do show terrible poverty and extreme wealth.the wealth of the few is quite sickening.the poverty is sometimes quite heartbreaking to see.but we specialise in showing reality for over 15yrs. these poor families you will see, are warm friendly people and deserve your attention.a smile will cost you nothing.a dollar will ensure them 4 meals that day!
i see many comments about the twk twk drivers trying to sell you a ride,It is their only form of income,they have to ask!!!!.a nod and a smile that's all you need in reply. i stayed a week ,i used them on many occasions.all were reliable and prices are next to nothing would certainly recommend paddy rice as a really excellent budget hotel.

The best thing about this hotel is the location. Right in the middle of the riverside area. The room was OK, clean enough, although the bed was pretty hard! Breakfast was OK, but that's where the positives end. Our welcome at reception was fairly ordinary, compared to others we have had on our trip. Reception was often unmanned which wasn't terribly helpful. The worst part was the street noise. I had read this in other reviews, so was happy to accept one of the side rooms, NOT overlooking the river. First we had a birthday party happening just outside our window till late, then once that stopped we had an annoying drunk yelling outside for what seemed like hours. If you have ear plugs, its worth a try for the location, but we left Phnom Penh a day early not wanting a repeat.
