We stayed 3 nights and were really impressed with this hotel. The room was spacious, lovely and clean and the shower had the most amazing water pressure!! The pool area was nice too - a great way to cool down. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommend!!

One of good things about my travel to Phnom Penh is to stayed here! The Billabong staff recognized me so well when i was arrive, because he said that I'm the person who last checked in on that day. Small attention, but really touch! I put my high reference for this hotel!

They upgraded me into the biggest room with a balcony. And the room is really awesome! They have a showerhead also, a bench for relaxing, coffee maker, safety boxy, everythin. The swimming pool also very nice. I was fallin in love with their pool! I slept so comfortable with their bed, i even can not hear any noise from outside. Tuk-tuk are ready in front of hotel anytime, they were really nice and have a good price also. The Billabong near from Central Market. You can reach central just by walk for few minutes. And the last, they are really nice and friendly (red. staff)!! :) Overall a very pleasant stay. Thank you!

Janny was very quick and prompt with responding to our needs for pick up from the airport. The rooms are big and clean! The only problem is that the wifi reception was not great in the room but as soon as we get outside it works well. We also got complimentary wine which is amazing touch. Overall a very pleasant stay. Thank you.

The room was very nice. The bed was alright (good for asian standards), the shower was fantastic, large showerhead and good warm high pressure water. The swimming pool was nice, location of the hotel is close to/ or in the center (but most tuc tuc drivers took long time trying to find it).

Have to mention one thing though. We saw here on TA that the hotel had a promotion that if you book through their web page you would receive a bottle of wine. Although not the major decision factor, it helped choosing the hotel. When addressing this to the staff they had no knowledge about this promotion and we were told to ask about this the following day. We did, and they acknowledged the promotion. When we came back to the hotel from the s21 they had forgotten about this. We ended up asking 4 -5 times for the bottle of wine that we were promised. Although the wine wasnt a huge factor for our stay, we wanted what we had been promised. We also overheard other couple having the same problem as we had.

Stayed here two times - before and after going to Sihanoukville. The room was spotless, with aircon and a private balcony. Very nice and clean bathroom. The hotel also have a clean and big swimming pool which is wonderful in this heat. Would stay here again and again! Staff is very friendly and helpful!

Great hotel off the main street but within close walking distance to the Central Markets and other shopping. Lovely modern clean rooms. Very helpful staff. The bar and restaurant were just great. Will definately stay again.
