We stayed at The river view hotel over night to break our trip from Siem Reap to HCMC.
the good things about the hotel: clean and looks new with fresh paint, very friendly english speaking staff, with wifi, nice location - infront of tourist center along sisowath quay with a great view of the mekong river. There are tuktuks infront available everytime and there are bars and restaurants nearby. This hotel is very affordable and the area is not so noisy. The room and bathroom were clean and adequate in size. Theres TV with cable, ref, coffee and tea and with a great view of the mekong river from our suite on the top floor
What's not so nice about the hotel is that it's very small and narrow stuck in between buildings that we had a hard time looking for it. It had 2 rooms per floor with a total of 8 rooms only. We got a suite which was not really a suite but a room with a queen bed with an attic room accessible by a spiral ladder. There was no bed in the attic room but a mattress on the floor which was so hard. there were no curtains too so the room was warm and bright. There were 5 people in our group but there was only 1 bathroom in the "suite" so we had to get another room with a restroom and an extra bed. There's no lift! We had to climb a steep, narrow stairway to our room 5 floors up. Although a staff helped us with our bags going up, we had to carry all our bags on our way down since the rooms had no phones to call front desk. They had no restaurant or cafe so no breakfast was served nor can you order food. The building beside the hotel was under construction so the frontage was always littered with construction materials and workers. If ever i would go back to Phnom Penh i might still stay at river view hotel for the affordable price and good location but i will get a room on the lower floors.
