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.
