Hi-Land Hotel
Ranked #147 of 274 Hotels in Phnom Penh
Reviewed April 23, 2013

It was a short stay for 3 nights. We made a reservation for $16.5 per night for first 2 nights, but walk in price is $14! Keep that in mind for all reservations in South Asia! The Phnom Penh itself is very dirty peace of urbanized market civilization. You can not breath normally there. Also keep in mind that NO Public transportation in Phnom Penh. Cost of tuk-tuk is astronomical (minimum after bargain it will cost you $3!!!!). So just walk. And walking in that city is a night mare. The Hotel gives you a shelter to survive.

GOOD:
Staff is nice, the breakfast buffet for $3 is not bad, but you have to start at 7 am, since some items could be eaten out and not replaced after. Two hot plates, two deserts, porridge, Tea coffee, water, juice, two or one type of fruits. Room is nice. Keep in mind, that walk in rate will be lower compare to any reservation in advance you made.
Not so GOOD:
Check the hot water before agree for the room. Internet may work very slow from time to time. Also I could be some trouble to connect to WiFi spot. The staff from corridor could be noise early morning (after 7am). Choose room far from elevator and stairs.

Room Tip: Ask for higher floor far from elevator. Check hot water first!

We stayed at this hotel two separate times on the same vacation; The first time the elevator was broken, not a problem as we had a room on the second floor; when we checked in a second time the elevator was fixed and they added $1 to the room rate because of this. The wifi was suspect at first but they fixed it and it worked fast enough. The AC was cold and included a hot pot for boiling water. Limited amount of hot water (in shower) as they did not have the on demand electrical water heater for the shower, but I assume a central water heater which could not keep up with demand. It is on the outer limits of the City with little to walk to...

I was in the Hi-Land Hotel for a few days. It is a little bit outside of the city center so it also was a bit more quiet. Getting downtown is still very easy!
for that price range, the rooms are MORE than okay and the staff was excellent.
so stay there if you don't want to be right in the central.

It is not near any tourist areas, but the cost and staff are excellent. The rooms are comfortable and clean. If you do not want to be around the tourist areas - then stay here. If you want to be around the tourist areas - this is not the place to stay. The Staff will help you get to the tourist areas at a cheaper price and pick you up at the airport. I recommend this hotel for the business and solo traveler. Very clean rooms (7th floor rooms) and great housekeeping staff. The meals are reasonably priced and they have room service. Internet service is available and the area is safe.

Room Tip: Top floor is the best

The hotel and room are comfortable and clean, although the place does not look quite as nice as in the website photos. The service was generally good and prompt. The location is far from the tourist spots. It is suitable for those that are in the area for volunteer or other work reasons, and need a comfortable and clean room with 24 hour wifi, and at a reasonable price. I booked a room through a hotel booking website which did not include breakfast (at the hotel, the walk-in rate was cheaper!). Interestingly, I did not see anyone having breakfast in the hotel during the 3 mornings I was there. There are nearly no meal options in the vicinity except for some street vendors on the main street. No shopping options within walking distance except for Heng Ly market which is more for locals. Vacationers and holiday makers would do better to be closer to the downtown and riverfront areas. I asked about late checkout after 12 noon: it will cost additional half a night's rate till 4 pm, after which a full night's charge will be imposed. The hotel sells dried preserved fruits (pineapple, mango, papaya) and ginger from a company that employs landmine victims. They are cheaper than what you can get at the supermarkets, are good as gifts for friends and family back home, and support a good cause.

The hotel is relatively new. The room was nice enough, but far away from town. We walked into town but it took something like 45 minutes. The staff were running around and didn't know what to focus on. I wouldn't stay there again because of the location. However, there is a good street vendor setup right on the main road close by. We asked them to help us get a tuk tuk to the airport. They wanted to charge 40% more than just asking one on the street.
