The pluses: Location very handy a few minutes walk to markets, the river, the bar area and the jetty for the boat trips up the river. We put our stuff in the safe and it came out OK! The reception were friendly enough. $20 for an a/c room in a capital city is pretty good anywhere in the world. The a/c worked really well. Someone gave this hotel a bad rap based on their mistake of ordering a fan room. Big mistake. Huge. But not the hotel's problem!
Provided you dont eat here, this hotel is good in terms of price and location but we havent tried anywhere else in Phnomh Penh. Certainly better value for the accomodation than in Yangon (Rangoon) for example.
The minuses: Elevator still not ready when we were there in August 2012. Our toilet did not flush but we could make it flush with a hose attached to the shower so no biggy. Foyer is a little dark and dingy but again no biggy.
Avoid the restaurant like the plague. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED!! Pity we didnt follow the advice of others, but it was simply pouring with rain, and we had had pleasant memories of a French Restaurant in Vientiane. We had a stupid Frenchman on the next table who obviously goes there every day to chain smoke his cigars everyday and blow smoke into everyone else's food. He didnt like it exactly when we asked him to refrain. However the main reason we have given this hotel a poor rating is that my wife and I both got terrible food poisoning. If any of you have experienced the effects of a total body evacuation when you are on the road, you will know how ugly this experience is. My wife ended up on a drip in hospital on arrival back home in Australia. I had to go to the UK and at the KIA airport in KL I spent 6 hours with diarrhoeia and vomiting, and sometimes I could only make it to the sink. Verdict is the worst food poisoning of my life.
