We stayed here over Khmer New Year. We thoroughly enjoyed the ambience and the feeling of history. Check in was easy and dine by a manager over a drink. The smell of lemongrass oil was lovely and needed to mask the smell of the numerous smokers. We are not used to smokers and there are strict laws about smoking where we live.
Breakfast was fresh and the buffet was in small quantities which were replenished as needed. Many things were made to order. The egg station is standard in hotel buffets but the was also a pancake station, fresh fruit station, soup and noodles station.
