“Nice, new and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

I stayed in Villa Samnang last June (2012) for 3 nights. The staff was nice and helpful. The hotel is located in a very quiet nice place. Walking distance from some cafe's and shops and may need a 5 minute tuk-tuk to others. I was upgraded to a better room since it was available. The rooms were modern and all functioned well: shower, hot-water, wifi, AC.
I only had breakfast which was very good.
For those who care - the place has no elevator.
I strongly recommend and will probably go there again if the price will stay right.

All our usual hotels were booked so we stayed in Samnang for 5 nights. For a hotel in this price range, the hotel is just not good enough. There are not enough staff members, so everyday breakfast service seemed to grind to a halt as the waitress went off to double up as receptionist, and the staff were OK rather than very good (with the exception of the housekeeping lady who was really friendly). Check-in took ages. The rooms are ok, I'd describe the decor as an attempt on bachelor-chic, so not my style but some others might like it! For some reason we had lots of mosquitoes in both rooms we stayed in. Other than that the rooms were fine, bathrooms and air con were good. The real disappointment is the outdoor area - it is a tiny space, but it's just not kept clean enough. The water in the pool was not clean and it smelt of sweat, and the area around the pool was not swept often enough. Cushions were mouldy and there were loads of biting ants everywhere. The worst thing were the big rats running around behind the loungers every evening as we used the pool. The bar played really loud Celine Dion music each evening (although admittedly it was the old French guests who asked the barman to turn it up), and the breakfast was poor too. Every day when we asked for the fruit platter we were told 'today we just have bananas'. Won't be staying here again!

Room Tip: Avoid the room with adjoining door - you can hear every snore and cough from next door

We had difficulty finding accommodation and were lucky enough to stumble across these Villa's. Sambath and her staff were very helpful and polite. The hotel itself was very relaxed in a location away from the hustle and bustle of town but close enough with a short tuk tuk drive.

Pool is great, tropical surounds, cold beer after a day in the sun, a great place to relax. Rooms are of a good standard and house keeping does a good job in keeping it that way. Breakfast is not massive, but enough variety to get you through until lunch without being a pig.

Would reccommed this hotel to all types of travellers

we booked the family suite because we are one adult and 2 teen kids... they gave us the room beside the book.. Wow ... so convenient, clean, practical, comfortable.. breakfast delicious... and the location is a walk to the center but not far... they play very nice mode music during the day in the pool and dinning/bar area and are very kind and thoughtful... the whole setting is just right...

Room Tip: make friendly with an english speaking tuk tuk driver and let him be your guide .. for a reasonable...

have stayed here before when this place was new. It WAS in great condition. nice staff. but this time... AWFUL. we are coffee people and early risers. we got up each day at the same time and had to BEG for coffee. it took 20 mins to make 2 cups and just as long for refills. small dining room, and yet we still cannot get waiter to take order for breakfast. had to get up and ask for everything. the pool (the whole reason we booked this hotel) was filled with mud and not useable! the rooms are now old and paint marked up and dirty. the door in bathroom broken, and taking a shower FLOODS the whoe bathroom. staff so nice, owner very nice. Sad to be so let down.

Stayed for the first time in Villa Samnang in November 2011 and it was a litte hard to find, but we got there it was a sanctuary comparing with the busy streets in Phnom Penh.
If possible try to get the room with balcony overlooking the pool and remember that the hotel is 3 stores high and have no elevator.
It's really relaxing to have a dip in the pool or just a drink at poolside after a day on the town.
As most of the Cambodians, the staff is very friendly and serviceminded, and the whole hotel is very Cambodian boutiquestyled.

Room Tip: If possible try to get the room on 2nd floor with balcony overlooking the pool and keep in mind that...

I stayed 3 times at Villa Samnang and every time was just perfect. It´s within walking distance to all the major tourist-sites in the city center but out of the troubled quay area. A quite and peaceful place where you´ll get all the comfort you need such as pool, free WiFi and internetconnection, TV, safe, large - spacious - very well designed roomes.... And the great stuff would just do everything to make your stay even more comfortable and after only some days you start to feel like you´re home.

Nice kind of boutique hotel - perfect to hide and relax from all craziness out in the city. Will certainly come back and recommend to others....
