I guess the first thing that struck me was the overwhelming smell of smoke when we entered the lobby. The size of the room was OK, but the darkness of the hallways was creepy. We only stayed in Phnom Penh for 2 nights or probably would have moved, because we saw other alternatives for less money in a location more desirable to us. I only ate the toast at the breakfast 'buffet' as it all looked pretty gross to me. I was really unsure if they had vacumned the room as I found a bobbie pin on the floor when I entered...

Stayed: December 2008

This hotel is located on the main retail and commercial road in Phnom Penh and near the Soriya and Central market. It has well appointed rooms and friendly staff. The breakfast isn't that good, but as I've seen in my travels a free breakfast is usually a bad breakfast anyway.
The one negative was their single towel policy and the towel was old and thin. Apart from that a good value hotel.

There wasnt a pick up at the airport as arranged & my room was'nt ready. However, the staff were very kind & the room was nice & clean. Breakfast was as basic as it comes & internet was extra. If your not looking for the extra trimmings, this place will do you fine.

The positives:
1.) Bathroom has a bathtub/shower combination and is decently clean. The tiles around the bathtub had some dark mold, which was a little disturbing, but I understand that the stuff is hard to prevent & get rid of.

2.) Breakfast options were well explained and consisted of about 10 options - and every option came with unlimited toast, rolls, bananas, lychies, coffee & tea.

3.) Restaurant staff was extremely friendly. Lots of smiles & great service.

4.) Tuk-tuks, internet cafes, and banks abound right outside the hotel door.

Downfalls:

1.) They charged us $20 for the room key, which broke off in their make-shift elevator. You have to insert the room key into a slot in the elevator in order for the elevator to ascend. However, the slot itself looks shady, like someone just took a power tool to it and created the hole, and you have to really press down hard on the floor button in order to get the elevator to read the card/floor #. The housekeeper who let us into our room (b/c our key was taken by the receptionist) actually had a card that had been broken TWICE, and it was taped together in two places. Hmmm. We're not the only ones who have broken their card - maybe the cards are made of old plastic? Or the makeshift slot in the elevator causes a lot of the keys to break off?

2.) Location is far if you're traveling with someone that doesn't really want to walk more than 5 blocks. It's hard to walk around this part of the city b/c everyone parks their SUVs, Toyotas, Hondas, and motorbikes on the sidewalks. So you have to constantly walk in the street with the traffic in order to walk down a city block. Therefore, it takes longer & it's a little disconcerting with all the nutty traffic.

3.) The room was pretty clean, but the bedding was old & the sheets were really worn out. There were light yellow-ish stains on the pillows & on the sheet that covers the mattress.

If you're not going to be in your room much, then this would be a great budget option. It's only about $30-$35 for a standard room, and if you take tuk-tuks around, you can expect to pay about $5 round trip from the Russian market or the river. However, if you want to be able to walk outside your hotel and have coffee somewhere, or a meal, or just go for a nice stroll and have a look around, this isn't the place to be. It's too far for any of those things. Even Lonely Planet calls Monivong blvd. the "commercial drag." There are lots of commercial shops for locals around - but not much for a traveller. Even the restaurants nearby aren't desireable - they're pretty crappy.

If I had to do it again, or if I were giving a friend advice, I'd tell them to stay closer to the river or in a $50 place near the Royal Palace - at least then they'd have a nice hotel with a pool, and they'd be able to walk places without it taking 20+ minutes of a difficult walk.

Some good places we stayed included the Pavilion and the Kabiki. Both are near the Royal Palace, have wonderful pools & gardens, and are within walking distance to at least a few attractions.
