I stayed in Phnom Penh as a single person as I was taking semi-professional photos. My wife didnt want to do the stupid early starts. The hotel is in a perfect location in the sea of dust and bedlam that is just simply the life of Cambodias capital city.
The Hotel was once the USA embassy and is decorated in French Colonial style. It is a 15 minute walk from the Royal Palace and just a 10 minute Tuk Tuk ride from the Russian Market (still want to know why its called the Russian Market?)
Reception and Check in was pleasant and simple. They even accomadated an early checkin without a fuss. The room was well appointed and most importantly cool. The bathroom was much bigger than in other similar hotels I have stayed in. The shower to my delight was large and the pressure of water certainly helped knock off the days travel dust.
Breakfast was perfect. I had an early flight on my last day and the staff came in half an hour early to ensure that I got my coffee and toast before heading to the airport. Good service with pleasant smile.
Once again if you want a small slice of heaven in the hustle and bustle of Phnom Penh then look no further, it is just perfect.
