Do not judge a hotel by its street front should be a good saying in Phnom Penh, and which works for this hotel. In fact if you were driving along street 258 at night, the first impression is that it’s downright dodgy. The hotel is in fact a great find. My first impression was via email with the very efficient front office manager. Our room was lovely, but sadly the only window we could open was a small one in the bathroom. Bathroom was nice – but had to watch the trippable entrance step into the bathroom. To access our room required crossing a walkway between two buildings – so it’s a great idea to ask the helpful reception staff for assistance moving luggage. Do take the time to visit the roof-top pool & bar – amazing view of the city!! Breakfast is buffet style. The hot food was not hot unless came straight from the kitchen. The fruit selection was wonderful, as was the omelette making station. The male serving staff were very considerate offering to carry hot drinks... back to our table. If you’re spry footed, yes the hotel has excellent 10-20min walking access to the Riverfront, Royal Palace & National Museum. However, if the Phnom Penh traffic is bewildering (there are no street crossings/intersections in Cambodia where traffic will stop & wait for pedestrians), save the stress & hop in a Tuk Tuk. Please note some of the drivers around the Hotel were extremely pushy & keen to charge expensive rates. Best to agree on a price before you drive off (& DO NOT pay more than $3US for a one-way trip to Royal Palace or National Museum). If you’d like the driver to stay around and drive you back…then yes you can pay a little more.
