Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 11, 2012

Coming from Siem Reap, Phnom Penh was a bit of a culture shock... so much bigger and busier. This little oasis in the city was always great to return to.

We had a basic twin room that was, by chance, on the end of the second floor balcony, so there was no foot traffic. It was a decent size and had a very good a/c. This is possibly why we had a thick quilt on the beds - for that you had to set it quite cool. The bathroom was large, and while there was no tub, the rain shower was fantastic.

The hotel had a basic but appreciated buffet breakfast. We never tried lunch or dinner. The pool was good and the seating around both it and the balconies was great to relax by. Because it's a smaller hotel, it was never crowded.

The location was pretty decent. A 15 minute walk in the heat to the Royal Palace, and a bit further to the riverside. We walked sometimes, but the small crowd of tuk tuks waiting out the front were too hard to ignore on most occasions.

Looking back on our four night stay, we were happy and felt it was good value for money. There are higher rated hotels on TA that we'd like to try next time, but certainly we were satisfied with Hotel Nine.

This hotel has a great location, friendly staff and very clean property. We went as big family and had booked four rooms. Kids ranging from 4 to 14. Tuk tuks were available at all times though we had our own rental van.
Food in the restaurant was limited but tasted good. Breakfast spread was also limited but good. Restaurant closes at 10 pm so order anything to eat before that!
No phones in room and no elevator was somewhat limiting but all in all we had a wonderful stay!!

Room Tip: All rooms are good but you can try to take the ones that are on the floors above the restaurant side...

Hotel Nine is in a great location, the staff were very friendly and there are Hotel Nine tuk-tuk drivers on standby as and when you need them to whizz you around the fabulous city of Phnom Penh. Hotel Nine is on a very busy street which makes you feel like you have been chucked into the deep end of Cambodia, but it is very exciting. However you can still be by the pool enjoying Hotel 9's happy hour and feel like you are the only ones there. Great hotel, excellent facilities and very accommodating. Even arranging us a driver and car to take us all the way to Siem Reap! For just $85USD. Thoroughly recommend Hotel Nine.

We are very happy to read that you enjoyed your stay at Hotel Nine. The location of Hotel Nine is in real “Phnom Penh”, street 9 is a wonderful street that has a real community feel. Walk through the gates to Hotel Nine though and you can escape the hustle and bustle. This is what we had in mind when we built the hotel, and it is nice to know that guests also see it that way.

We will pass on your kind comments directly to the staff, it is very rewarding from them when they get this kind of feedback.

Thanks again for your review and recommendation.

Hotel nine is a very friendly hotel. Very clean, this quiet hotel has a good atmosphere. Breakfast is exactly what it should always be. The staff is nice, helpful and competent. Nobody could be desappointed. It is I come back again and again there. I am used to going to phnom penh and I know quite a few hotels. Only one problem, can be easily no vacancies cause there are not so many rooms. Love it ! I sent a few friends there.

Thanks for your recommendation here on trip advisor and to your friends. You are right, since opening we have been very busy and we very rarely have vacancies. Book ahead!!!

Great location, friendly staff, nice clean room, lovely pool and good breakfast. A bit expensive if you book bus travel. Excellent restaurants nearby.

Hotel Nine is small and chic, clean and contemporary with friendly staff. The rooms were a little small but they made up for it with service. An easy tuk tuk ride to most places. Recommended.

Room Tip: Go for the top floor unless you have troubles with stairs.

A stylish boutique hotel with great staff and kitchen, conveniently located within walking distance of the Independence Monument. The standard rooms are basic but perfectly enough and very clean with a good ac and fan. The hotel is such a lovely relaxing spot in the middle of Phnom-Penh. The staff is excellent, the girl in the bar is the best, the house cocktail rocks and the local chef in the kitchen is top notch!! I tried the peking duck pancakes and the sweet and sour porc .. I am going back next month for the 2nd time!!
