This a beautiful, grand yet charming property, with great, high ceilinged rooms, extremely comfortable beds, and a wonderful atmosphere. Really, everything you could want from a luxury hotel. Once outside of your room however, the solicitousness of the staff is simply overwhelming. No sip from a glass is left unreplenished, plates are removed as you are chewing the last bite, every staff member (and this hotel has an enormous staff) has memorized your name and asks how is everything, when did you arrive, where have you been, where are you from etc etc. Over and over and over. There is no such thing as unobtrusive service here. If you want to feel like the Emperor of Japan, this is the perfect place.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A history of hospitality. The luxury of time. The secret charm of Cambodia. One of Asia's essential destination hotels, Raffles Phnom Penh has been the iconic resting place for the well travelled since 1929. Located in the heart of vibrant Phnom Penh, our hotel has been part of the history of the city and welcomes, as it has always done, a diverse clientele of entrepreneurs, writers, journalists, royalty and intrepid travellers from across the globe. Rooms and suites have been respectfully restored to reflect a distinguished blend of Khmer, Art Deco and French colonial architecture. Dining is an essential part of the Phnom Penh experience. In keeping with history and a sense of place, the elegant Le Royal Restaurant serves modern French cuisine and Royal Khmer cuisine with original recipes graciously gifted to Raffles from the Royal Palace. Almost as famous as the hotel itself, is the Elephant Bar where local residents and visitors alike gather over wine, whisky and cocktails. The Raffles Spa offers relaxation, rejuvenation and fitness through a considered mix of local and classic treatments, gym and spa pool. Complete your visit to Cambodia with a stay at our sister hotel Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor, a great hotel of the legendary Grand Tour of Indochina and virtually at the doorstep of the Angkor UNESCO World Heritage site. ... more less
