My wife and I stayed here January 23 and 24, 2014 based upon the positive reviews on TripAdvisor and booking.com and the low price. We had the family room which was spacious. The staff were very friendly and the location was good, being two blocks from the Giant Ibis "bus station" and a 15 minute walk to either the Royal Palace or Central Market. Those are the positives.
Unfortunately, the room was dirty. The bathroom was even dirtier - the toilet looked like it hadn't been cleaned since the French last administered the city. There was a disgusting open drain next to the toilet in which you could see the contents of the toilet drain when the toilet was flushed. The room was not made up during the day until we asked. And even then, we were given no new toilet paper until we asked again.
In addition, one of the posted rules for the hotel was "No retaining, or kidnapping activities are allowed within the area of the guesthouse." Hardly reassuring - though we never felt unsafe at the hotel (or in Phnom Penh for that matter) so the rules were more kitschy than alarming.
We've stayed in a lot of budget hotels across North Africa, the Middle East, and Asia, and this was the worst lot we have encountered. Unless you are on a tight budget, hop on the nearest tuk tuk and spend a few more dollars at a better place.
