“Would recommend staying here.”
Reviewed March 13, 2014 via mobile

I stayed here for 4 nights whilst in Phnom Penh and thoroughly enjoyed my stay. This was my second time in Phnom Penh and is the best hotel I've stayed in here!
A big room with comfortable bed, free and good Wi-Fi, loads of tv channels, a fridge, hot shower and really clean.
Staff were super friendly and helpful too!
Central Market is a 2 minute walk and is a great place to spend the day!!

this is a budget hotel but comfortable and fun. my wife and I stayed here for almost 3 weeks. we had stayed in the Riverside area before, but the hotels are all full and all more expensive. This area was quieter and we enjoyed the central market. Several times we bought fresh seafood there and the staff prepared it to absolute perfectionfor a small fee.
It was clean and comfortable room with only minor noise from constuction. Ask for a room in the back away from the street.

Room Tip: Get a room at the back because they are away from the street and not exposed to sun.

Friendly staff, but room had a smell hanging over it. Near the central market and only a 15 stroll to the river. Did not try the breakfast as it was pricey compared to the food stalls all around. That said I would use them again.

We were stuck in Phnom penh for an extra night as our flight was delayed a day. Having nowhere to stay we asked the taxi driver to take us somewhere. The driver took us to Safari where there were only two rooms left.

Been slightly dubious i was not sure what to expect but was pleasantly suprised. The staff were very welcoming, the rooms big and clean with everything you could want. There is a nice area to sit out the front and have a drink or meal.

Free wifi in all rooms and also two computers in the lobby for guests use,

The only issue I had was that it was very very noisy in the morning with staff and kids talking outside the room and generally been extremely loud. As it was 9 am I guess I should not complain too much - maybe just try and get to bed earlier!

Room Tip: If you wish not to be disturbed maybe ask for a room upstairs. We were on ground floor near kitchen...

Stayed here one night prior to 3 night stay in Siem Reap and then a further 3 nights to see sights of Phnom Pehn. Basic double room with air conditioning cost us $20US a night.
Staff friendly and helpful and arranged our Vietnam visas overnight.
Hotel is close to Riverside and Central market.

The staff was nice and helpful with not too much English.
There were 2 internet terminals complimentary for hotel guests.
The kitchen was OK for basic breakfast needs.

What's great is that the Safari Hotel is just opposite the bus terminal right in the centre!

We stayed here because it was a very busy time and we could not find any other hotel available. When you first walk in to the Lobby the first impressions are good. Spacious, well set out and clean. Once your in the rooms though it's a different story. Filthy - and I am not fussy or picky. When your looking at spending $25-$35 per night for accom you aren't looking for luxury but I am expecting clean. Hair in the sink, floor had not been mopped (white tiles so it stood out) and no surface had seen a duster in a very long time. When we spoke to the manager about it he apologised and was embarrassed. Book in advance and you will find much better.
