Himawari Hotel Apartments
Ranked #27 of 272 Hotels in Phnom Penh
Reviewed May 29, 2013

I stayed at the Himawari for about three weeks and found it to be a great place to stay, for long- or short-term stays. The room was very clean and comfortable, the breakfast was very delicious and the pool was perfect to swim laps. The staff was very helpful in every way. I had a two bedroom suite that had a large living and dining area, a nice kitchen with a stove and a microwave, full-sized refrigerator, and everything you would need to cook in the room. The gym was also very nice. There is also a microbrewery in the lobby that has very nice beers and when it cools down, you can sit outside and watch the boats go by on the river.

It is in close proximity to the restaurants on the riverfront if you choose to dine outside of the hotel, and the riverfront is also a great place to walk as well. Nearby the Royal Palace and other sights as well.

The General Manager is very "hands on" with the guests and his presence was seen throughout my stay to make sure everything was going well.

Whether you are going for business or for relaxation/vacation, the Himawari will be a good choice for you.

It was our first time in Cambodia and I must say that i was most impressed by the service standards and the ability of the staff to converse in English. When my sunglasses went missing walking along the streets near the Palace, the security guard assisted me with the Police to make the report. They also have one of the best massage spa in the hotel.

On the location, there are 4 rivers intersecting right where the hotel is located. So going anywhere is easy. Make it your stay the next time folks!

It was a great stay for my wife and i at the Himawari Hotel. The location is fantastic as it is just next to the bustling street of cafes, pubs, restaurants, the majestic mekong river and well as the places of interest. Room is bigger than expected as we have been pretty much used to small hotel rooms in our travel. Service has been pleasant and comparable to international branded hotels. Quality of food is highly commendable though do not expect the huge varieties that one experiences in 5 stars international hotels. Himawari does offer great value to the amount paid. This will be our "go to" hotel for our future trips to Phnom Penh.

The Himawari is a sprawling apartment-hotel complex by the Mekong. There is a choice of rooms, but all are much larger than typical hotel rooms. I had booked a 1 bedroom, but received a 2 bedroom for my four night stay. It had a large well-furnished seating and dining area, a kitchen, laundry and two bedrooms - each with ensuite. It was quite over the top really, but very nice for a longer stay. Food and service are both good. Location is excellent.

Room Tip: Request a Mekong view room.

The Himawari Hotel is located on the banks of the river and is within walking distance of the Royal Palace, shops, cafes and restaurants. It is a great place to stay if you want a bit of peace and quiet
as it is just far away enough from the hustle and bustle of the busy city. The rooms are extremely nice and very large. The facilities include swimming pool, gym and a very nice spa room. Tuk tuk drivers abound so there was never a problem getting anywhere.

The staff were wonderful and nothing was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend this hotel to both business and leisure travellers alike.

I've been staying at the Himawari Hotel on business trips since 2002. It's the best place to stay in Phnom Penh. The rooms are much larger than standard hotel rooms and it has a very central location. One thing I particularly like is that a lot of the staff have been working here for the whole time I have been staying. They always give you a very warm welcome back. Mr Thou Kokheng, the Front Office Manager does a great job and is really helpful. In fact all the staff in all departments from housekeeping, front of house, business centre and the restaurant are incredibly helpful. In addition to the large standard rooms the hotel has quite a number of one bedroom and two bedroom suites. It's nice to be upgraded to these on a complimentary basis. Although given how large the the standard rooms are, one has plenty of space no matter what type of room you are in.

After the hot, dusty environment in Siem Reap, it was great to finish off our holiday in Cambodia in real style at a reasonable price. It is hard to fault this hotel. The rooms were large and comfortable with great furnishings and an efficient air conditioner, and the staff were excellent. We enjoyed our meals at both the micro brewery and The Oyster Bar. Breakfast buffet was fantastic, with a selection of western and Asian foods, and it was lovely to start the day overlooking the river. The Himawari is a great hotel to relax in after the heat and bustle of Phnom Penh.

Room Tip: All the rooms are good.
