Sunway Hotel Phnom Penh
Ranked #34 of 272 Hotels in Phnom Penh
Reviewed March 3, 2013

What a nice way to to begin our 6 day tour of cambodia, of which 2 nights were spent in Phnom Penh. Arriving at the airport and driving through the city with a shuttle service that picked us up we first expected nothing, but was greeted by friendly staff, an upgrade to the presidential suite, good food and a feeling that we are cared for.
Thank you Sunway hotel for a easy entry into Phnom Penh, if I can quote from another tripadvisor review. We also missed a swimmingpool after a long day in the heat, but with a huge jacuzzi/bath in our bathroom I am not going to complain. Definitely worth staying here.

this was an easy entry into Phnom Penh. Airport pickup smooth. Spacious rooms, decent views, and within minutes walking to major attractions like Wat Phnom. Friendly service, nice breakfast, and some great local food. Too bad no swimming pool. Nice bar on ground floor.

We stayed 2 nights as part of a week long tour of Cambodia. This was the most comfortable hotel we stayed in, but we all wished we could have cooled off in a pool at the end of a long hot day. The markets and many restaurants are within walking distance if you know which way to go. We got lost the first night. The hotel was clean and the breakfast had good selections of both Asian and American foods. A decent choice in Pnom Penh.

We were travelling with a pre-booked package and had requested a non-smoking room. There seemed to be a little confusion when we booked in but without a quibble we were upgraded to a suite complete with a small kitchen and a sitting room! There were also two huge balconies, overlooking the city, complete with patio furniture, a table, chairs and an umbrella. We did find the lighting system a bit complicated but everything else was excellent. It was a shame that we were only staying for one night! We had the buffet dinner and breakfast the next morning. Both meals were very exceptable with a good choice of dishes. Sadly we did not get to explore the local area as we had a busy schedule and the former king's fineral was being held.

Room Tip: Try and get upgraded!

I've stayed at this hotel twice on two different business trips. It is a nice hotel with decent rooms. Nothing really special, but good for the region. The room package I had included breakfast, which was quite good with a lot of selection, including the typical breakfast fare, omelettes made to order, fresh local fruit (my favorite thing to have when I travel), and even soup made to order (Pho - local noodle soup). I managed to get decent rates for the hotel because I was doing work associated with the government, so I was able to get the local government rate. I would guess that without that, this hotel would be somewhat expensive.

The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is right next to Wat Phnom, which sits on the hill that Phnom Penh is named for. It is only a few blocks to the river (Tonle Sap) and is walkable distance to many of the sights along the river, including the Royal Palace and lots of restaurants and bars.

Like many hotels of this category, the pricing in the bar and restaurant tries to follow US/European standards, so a beer is $4 or $5 and dinners are $15-$30 (USD). My recommendation is to not eat at the hotel, but visit the extraordinary selection of bars and eateries in the area. My friends and I found a little bar less than a block away that sold Angkor Wat beer for 50 cents each.

Room Tip: Try to get a room that looks south toward the US Embassy. Try to get a room with a balcony where it...

A nice, clean and efficient hotel. it is directly opposite the American Embassy. The rooms were spacious and clean. The WIFI is free throughout. The Bar is quite good if pricey ($3.50 for a soft drink) but it lacks atmosphere Breakfast was good - lots of choice and good service.

The gym was fine and our friends enjoyed the spa treatments. There is no pool.

It is a good location and the tuc tucs are about $2 - $4 a ride. Agree upfront for the ride - some drivers tried to charge $1 per person which is sometimes double the normal rate.

Room Tip: Ask for a balcony - they upgraded our entire booking to a suite as they couldn't provide a balco...

We stayed 1 night at Sunway Hotel. We were checked in very quickly and escorted to our room. The room and bathroom were very spacious with modern faculties. Free Broadband and WiFi, good selection of TV stations to wTch, tea/coffee facilities. And minibar. The room also had a large balcony which was nice except for excessive Phonom Penh heat.
We had Three meals at the hotel restaurant dinner, breakfast and lunch. Each time we were sat I. The far corner. The drink waiters would not come into the area where we were. So had to get up and ask for drinks. This happened each time.
The buffet bar was extensive for each meal which was a mix of Asian and Western food available.
We nice a big issue with the plates, cutlery and glasswear. They either looked greasy or the plates had baked on good on them.
After the third meal I had to speak to management. The Hotel manager was there and I showed him a number of examples. He was very apologetic but did not remove the dirty plates.
I would recommend the Sunway Hotel to anyone who stays at Phenom Penh although I am sure there are other hotels of better standard or in a better location.
