Franco is great (he's Australian, but don't hold that against him), so friendly and willing to give you local advice.
The room was big, very clean, comfy bed and beautiful bathroom.
Each floor as an open air chill out area with couches. Really adds to the character of the place.
There are no elevators but it is only 3 stories high and the bell boys help you out anyway. We found the same thing in a similar hotel in Siem Reap, so it's not unusual. No complaints about that. The spiral staircase adds to character in any case.
The tuk tuk drivers associated with hotel 9 are very trust worthy. We found the tuk tuk drivers in general in Cambodia are generally pretty good compared to the jerks we encountered in Bangkok. We had a guy drive us out to S21 and the Killing Fields, then onto the Russian and central markets. Much easier than hustling with drivers at each stop.
The breakfast was nice. The pool looked good too but we didn't get a chance to dip in.
Thanks to Franco and the team at Hotel 9 for giving us a good stay in Phnom Penh.More
