“Great little gem in the heart of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

My husband was here for buisness and I joined him for a few days. It was very centerally located. The staff was very helpful and professional. The breakfast is good and the rooms were very clean and nice. Really enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: There is not an elevator and the third floor was very high when I was tired from a long day!

The Frangipani Fine Arts is everything one can imagine of French colonial Asia - and more. The service is superb, rooms comfortable, bathrooms huge and restaurants excellent. It was my first stay and I look forward to returning.

We stayed at the Frangipani for two nights in late February. Hotel was booked by travel agents (Tour East in Bangkok/HCMC, Senwel Travel Cambodia), who also arranged our private tour of Cambodia and Laos. The Frangipani is a four storey inner city hotel, surrounded by other equally tall building, so no view from the small balcony except down into the small courtyard - but not a problem, who sits on a balcony when you have a city to explore? We were on the top floor, 60 stairs and no elevator, but the folks at the hotel looked after the luggage.
The nicely decorated room is large enough for a sitting area. Funky wicker bed frame. The bathroom is not too big, but it was clean, everything worked, and the water was hot. Strangely, the bathroom is separated from the bedroom by a wall that stops short from the ceiling, and there is a curtain instead of a door.
Wi-fi worked well.
The breakfast is in the courtyard. You fill in an order form and breakfast is brought to the table. A selection of breads, fruit, drinks, etc.
The hotel is within walking distance of river front, restaurants, Royal Palace, National Museum, shops, Central Market.
For two nights, the Frangipani was prefect for exploring Phnom Penh.
We took a boat from Phnom Penh to Siem Reap - good for younger folks who like to sit on the roof in the sun; for us it was 6 hours of tedium and sweat in the cabin - for half the trip in middle of lake with nothing to see. Fly, or maybe go by air-conditioned car.

The hotel is located in a lively but not too noisy location in Phnom Penh, within a nice walking distance from the riverside, street 240, and the museum. Initiallly you have to be careful to locate the hotel, but once you do (and locals point out to you anyway), it is very convenient.he staff were nice and kept the rooms very clean.
The rooms are decorated tastefully and yet simply. However the room did feel smaller than for what I had booked, although I did not ask to check. The bathtub is very big and nice, but it will be quite a challenge to fill it up.
The common area is also very pleasant and well kept. Breakfast was included, but the juices etc were not fresh, so if you are quite picky it might be better to eat at a cafe outside.
Overall, I found value for money was average - I enjoyed the stay, the atmosphere, the room... but I wouldn't say it was well worth the amount paid.

Look no further. My Father and I were originally at Sary's Guesthouse but decided to change to Frangipani. It was like walking into heaven.

We were greeted with cool towels and juice in a waiting room with great AC. There is a little garden courtyard with free breakfast that is delicious. You can choice 1 juice, 1 type of bread, 1 type of egg, 1 type of coffee/tea/etc, and fresh fruit.

Our room was clean and very stylish. Brick and painted concrete interior with new and contemporary designs. Both the AC and internet work fantastically, and coffee/tea/safe/fridge/phone/desk/outlets were provided in the room. The staff were extremely accommodating and spoke wonderful English. Plus, it's literally right around the corner from the Royal Palace and National Museum. Food and tuk tuk drivers are abundant, yet the hotel is actually tucked into an alleyway. It's perfect.

Worth every penny.

The staff is helpful, the rooms are clean and mid-sized. The atmosphere is peaceful and the location is quiet and mintues from the river. Breakfast could be better but overall a great place to stay!

We absolutely enjoyed our stay here - and that includes everything: room, service, breakfast, location.
OK, the hotel (as many others of these boutique hotels in PP) is not easy to find but after a few rounds in the taxi, we arrived at this wonderful place:
- we were allowed to check in early, was a nice service.
- a stylish, modern, super clean, and big room (great bathrooom with exceelent water pressure): We stayed in the Junior Suite
- super helpful staff regarding tips, etc.
- very nice breakfast (inluded in price)
In short, our top highest recommendation (we also stayed at the Blue Lime and saw the Pavillion poolside - both of which of course are also very nice)
