My friends and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and loved every minute of it.
They have a saltwater pool, with lots of poolside lounging chairs, which is much appreciated after spending a day in the hot Cambodian sun.
The hotel rooms are spacious and clean - the beds had memory foam mattresses and were comfortable. Rooms were airconditioned and had ceiling fans. The rooms also overlook the pool and most of them have a balcony with chairs and table. The rooms also had a mini fridge and a tv with cable.
The bathrooms were clean and had hot water.
Breakfast is included in the room rate which you can enjoy at anytime of the day in the restaurant area, which is outside next to the pool.
They have internet at reception that you can use.
The hotel is relatively close to the riverside - although at night time some might prefer to take a tuktuk ride home rather than walking in the crazy Phnom Penh traffic. The lucky market is also close by.
This hotel was a little overpriced in comparision to the cost of daily activities in Cambodia, but is well worth it. You get away from the crazy city noise and have a wonderful place to rest and relax. The restaurant even serves lunch and dinner (not included in room rates).
Finally, the staff at the Billabong hotel were great. Very helpful and friendly.
My friends and I booked boatrides through the Mekong river, hired a taxi driver for a day to take us to the Genocide Museum and killing fields and booked a bus ride to take us to Siem Reap.
We were well taken care of at the Billabong!
