It is an oasis in the crazy polluted Phnom phen. A little difficult to find around 20 mins from the Mekong Express bus station and 30 minutes from the airport. A little incognito and does not have any signs up so come prepared with an address map or directions just incase. But once you get here it is like coming home. The welcome was warm and they helped to arrange a reliable Tuk Tuk for 2 days at an extremely reasonable price right off the bat. The location is safe and busy we walked around late at night and felt quite comfortable. There are multiple Tuk Tuks outside and they will take you to the heart of the action for $4. My only complaint would be that we were not able to close the windows completely and as a consequence were frequently visited by mosquitoes this is where the netting on top of the bed came in handy. The breakfast was made to order and tasty. If you want something quick and to go this wasnt it . The shower was rain fall style and huge! The service consisted of one person trying to serve around 5 tables so make sure you take out an hour of your day for breakfast. DId not try the bar or the dinner but both looked good. The front desk was very helpful in making dinner reservations and etc when needed. There was a french manager on site who was hospitable and friendly. Will stay here again!
