We have just returned from Cambodia and the best bit about Phnom Penh was this hotel, it is totally luxurious, very clean, friendly and helpful staff, great breakfasts and gorgeous rooms. I can recommend this hotel to anyone and everyone - very pleased with our selection !

We stayed at the Himawari for three nights in early February before heading off to Siem Reap. We have two children, ages 10 and 12, and were also traveling with my mother-in-law, so I was attracted to the extra space of the "two-bedroom executive suite".

Pros: extremely spacious, including a kitchen, dining room, and living room plus two full baths. (More than enough room for five people) Very clean rooms and bathrooms. Nice pool area with comfortable loungers and a jacuzzi. Fitness room. Decent (but not great) breakfast buffet. Excellent, central location on the river--walking distance to dozens of restaurants and shopping. Also a handy supermarket across the street. Pleasant staff. Wi-Fi internet, which we were not charged for.

Cons: Hard beds (common in Asia) Inconvenient pool access with no restrooms without going back through lobby. No balcony chairs. No river view rooms available, because "All of our river view suites are fully booked by long-term guests." This is important to know if you are looking for a river view, like we were. Rollaway beds are just awful--would NOT be okay for an adult to sleep on.

Overall, we thought the Himawari was just fine for the price, spaciousness, and excellent location. Have also stayed at the Intercontinental, which is very "western" and comfy, but is in the middle of nowhere. The apartment-style layout at Himawari is a great alternative to getting two adjoining hotel rooms.

Tuk-tuks are readily available out front--no need to book through hotel.

We stayed at the Himawari hotel for 6 nights whilst visiting Cambodia; it was our first stop before moving on to Siem Reap and then other parts of Cambodia.
We found the Himawari to be probably one of the best stays in Cambodia, The service was great, and the staff friendly, the food was excellent.
The rooms were big and clean, we were lucky enough to have en suite in both rooms, it was so modern inside that it looked like the hotel had just been built. The hotel was in a good location for visiting places of interest like the royal palace and silver pagoda a nice walk or short tuk tuk drive along to other sites of interest. The hotel @ night was very quiet.
All in all an excellent hotel and would have no doubt in staying here again!

Modern large impersonal apparthotel complex in very good location close to sightseeing in central PP. Don't expect a proper full service hotel. Korean owned, with minimal bar / restaurant facilities and a somewhat unfurnished feel , not much service and unmaintained external areas , it did not suit us. Pool OK, but area around a bit scruffy.

Appartments are large, basic, functional and modern (avoid the ones overlooking the main road which are noisy) but they are clean and the bed and linens were OK. Dull lighting at night made them seem more dismal than they actually were, and we did actually sleep quite well! Would probably suit a family in need of space or an extended stay.

Not sure there is much choice for luxury in PP, but this is not it .We thought other places looked more suited to the western market, but it does just about suffice for a short stay to see the sights.

We spent in total three nights at Himawari. We choose this hotel because we wanted to do some sightseeing, as well play tennis, relaxing and do some excercise at the gym. The tennis court is 80% booked by external guets. Therefore you don't have a chance to reserve the court, if you are not able to play in the sun (35°)!!! The pool was o.k. but eveywhere are some kind of rubbish and there isn't a order. On Christmas Day they closed the pool area for a private party. All hotel guets had to leave the pool area. There was not another possibiliy to hang around. They have a gym, called gym one. The maschines are at least 20 years old. The rooms are o.k and sizable, but the furnitures are old and ugly. The rooms incl. bathroom are clean. The food is nothing special. If you are very hungry you get something to eat. Unfortunatley, they don't know the word "al dente"! The service are very, very poor. And the prices are too expensive. If you already booked a room, please make sure, that you don't spend to many hours at this horrible hotel. If you have the change to cancel it, please do it. I don't recommend this hotel at all. Spend your money for better things. To sleep in a tent is probably much better!
