My best friend and I stayed here for a few nights in January and loved it! The staff were very attentive, location was fabulous (and quiet!) and the room was just as you see in the pictures. Would highly recommend and would definately return again.

We stayed at Riverside for 2 nights - 3 Adults.

The room was spacious and the view was excellent despite putting in the extra bed. We booked the deluxe suite + balcony and its worth every penny. The location is fantastic in the middle of the bustling busy street of Phnom Penh. Being on the highest floor we could not hear the traffic.

Breakfast was great as we had it delivered to the room. We had breakfast on the balcony with the amazing Mekong river view and watched sunset over the next 2 days.

Food and convenience stores are readily accessible and do take your jogging shoes or aerobic shoes as every morning and every evening, you can partake in the aerobics session with the locals just across the hotel.

We would definitely be back!

The only down side is if you're a heavy traveller with huge suitcases, do request for rooms on the lower floor. There's no lift and climbing the stairs is a great workout.

We stayed on the 4th floor but had just backpacks - hence climbing up is not a problem.

Staff are very helpful and friendly too!

Room Tip: Highest floors - Room 402 have a private stairs leading to the room. As it's on the highest floo...

We only stayed one night as we had arrived a day ahead of schedule and it was higher than our usual budget but it was very nice. We had a 2 bedroom suite with large rooms and a sitting room. There was a Playstation for the game starved kids and a view of the river. We thought about cancelling our other booking and staying longer but we had already paid a deposit so reluctantly moved on. Breakfast in our rooms was a nice touch. Only negative was no pool though one can be arranged. This place deserves to do well.

We stayed at the Riverside for two nights when we arrived in Cambodia. Overall, we had a good stay at the Riverside. We booked a room with balcony based on the pictures seen on the website. However, we learned after we arrived that all the rooms layout are different. Our room was on the top floor and the balcony was large and great. The room itself had a musty smell and the bathroom was not very modern. The breakfast was great and fresh although limited. You have the option of breakfast in your room or breakfast next door at the restaurant. The WiFi did not work very well and was not consistent. There is no elevator so you might want to request lower floor. The staff was very kind and helpful.

I knew I had paid much more than everywhere else I have been in Cambodia, yet I still wasn't sure what I was getting into until I got there, and I was pleasantly surprised.

Riverside Suites had exceeded all my expectations for staying in independent run hotels in Cambodia. The location was fantastic and our room, which was 402 at the top floor with a big balcony to ourselves had a great view of the river. The room was large and spacious and furnishings modern with a bit of rustic look to them.

The bathroom was good and modern, except that hot water only ran for about 5 minutes, which means there is no point trying to fill up the bath for a bath. There was a bit of a stink coming out of the drains near the toilets which was one of the smaller disappointing downsides.

Other than that - the staff were friendly and helpful, and always had a smile on their faces. The hotel is unfortunately not disable friendly (thinking outside myself here) and with only steep stairs and no lift access, it won't be suitable for anyone with physical limitations.

The breakfast included was fantastic. Whether you have it at Blue Pumpkin across the road or have it delivered to your room, the food was delicious. Wireless was included in the rates, which was fantastic to be able to show off our room to family and friends back home via Skype.

Yes, there are improvements to be made, but overall I was happy with the stay.

Room Tip: Pay a bit more for a river view room. It's worth it.

The room and location is good! But the bathroom is very poor and the bed is hard...The Ac is small that cannot make the room cold as Phnom Penh is really hot....We could hardly sleep during our stay in this hotel. The breakfast is awful because it is limited and you have to go to other restaurant..The restaurant waitress normally does not serve you properly and if you ask for more you have to pay extra. Ther are many times I called the reception and nobody is there...There are better hotels in Phnom Penh so I will not recommend this hotel!..Actually I will not come to Cambodia again because it is a tourist trap and everything is expensive...It is not worth the money that you spend to visit the place..There are many other country in Asia which more interesting to visit..

The room and location were fantastic. Large spacious bedroom, lounge, bathroom and outside terrace. You had the choice of breakfast in your room or pop across the road to a modern restaurant - excellent idea. All reception staff excellent bar one female receptionist who took no interest, never said hello, totally unhelpful and spent most of her time just surfing the net - very disappointing. Hence the average rating
