Anise Villa
Ranked #11 of 274 Hotels in Phnom Penh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 21, 2014

We were thrilled with our decision to stay at Anise Villa for our 3 nights in Phnom Penh. The rooms are stylish, inviting, roomy and comfortable, and the bathrooms nice. The included breakfast has many choices and is delicious. And then, of course, there is the wonderful pool and the daily laundry service of 5 pieces per person (free). The staff was lovely, and helpful with suggestions and reservations. They have a lending library, which we used and was a wonderful touch. We had an early morning flight out, and the staff helpfully made us a breakfast to go (before breakfast hours started) and had it ready for us to take in the taxi they booked for us. We would definitely stay here again!

Although the hotel is not right next to all the tourist attractions, it is a short tuk-tuk ride. And it is an easy walk to excellent restaurants and other sights, such as the former S-21 prison.

The anise villa is the best hotel among all I've tried in the city. The staff is excellent and the rooms are perfect. The restaurant is also very tasty and their menu is very complete. It's a nice and quiet place to stay, you'll love it. Very good value!

My stay at the anise villa was perfect. The service is very good, and the room was very clean and pleasant. The hotel is located in a quiet street, so you won't be annoyed by the noise of the traffic. I highly recommend it!

On our way to Indonesia, we stopped by the Anise Villa in Phnom-Penh and were met by a warm and professional staff. Our room was on the 2nd floor with view on the hotel's pristine swimming pool and surrounded by big mango trees. My family and I took a sightseeing trip to Oudong Mountain where an urn containing the remain of the Buddha was stolen and later on recovered this year. We were very tired when we came back. The kids jumped in the pool. We ordered some food, drank coconut juice, and rested in the shade of the big trees until dinner time.

The hotel restaurant serves excellent Khmer and international food. Our room came with free breakfast for all four of us. We could choose between a continental breakfast with eggs, sausage, and beacon, or an Asian breakfast like noodles or fried rice. There is also a Spa and a rooftop gym on site. The wifi works well in our room and downstairs, at the restaurant and around the pool.

The villa is situated in a quiet street but it is conveniently located in the best NGO and tourist area in Phnom Penh with easy access to markets, restaurants, parks, and just a short tuk tuk ride to the riverside. It is also at walking distance from the new Aeon mall, the latest shopping center to open in Phnom-Penh.

This is my first trip back home since 40 years of absence. I could not find any other place better to come home to than Anise Villa, first the architectural of the Villa remind me of our childhood home. The decor of the villa is something that we could very well transplant into our own home, they have a sitting area label as library with books and dvd availables to guest on an "honor" code loan. The staff was outstanding from front desk to housekeeping, their presence was omnipresent but not " right in your face". I appreciate the in room safe box (big enough to fit my laptop), as well as the security guards posted at the entrance of the hotel, just these two signs tell me that the management have in mind the guests security as their top priorities as well as their recommendations not to wear jewelries as well as to keep a vigilant eye on our purse when roaming the city as lately there was an increase of petty thefts . Also while my room was next to the front desk, amazzingly I was able to get good night sleep without any disturbance.The restaurant is right next to the pool, while small but you can not find better quality verse prices in PPenh. Anise Villa is a small/ medium size establishment but it offers all the amenities of a 4 stars hotel.
All in all my heartfell thank you to the owner of this establishment for this jewel of a place call Anise Villa.

I returned to Anise for the second time because my first stay was nothing short of fantastic. My girlfriends and I decided to do a girls trip to Cambodia and we all felt very safe at this hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the food is amazing and the rooms and clean, comfortable and good size. Thank you Anise for yet another wonderful stay!!!!!

My husband and I stayed here for our last 4 nights of our honeymoon based on the good reviews. The hotel was perfect for us, slightly out of the main hustle and bustle so lovely and quiet with the most friendly attentive staff. Our room was large with a comfy bed, soft pillows, quiet air con and the most powerful shower we have had for a long time. Although on the ground floor we felt really safe here and the patio doors were extremely secure. Breakfast was simple, but just what you need with the tables all surrounding the shady pool area.

As the hotel knew it was our honeymoon on arrival they had decorated our bed with rose petals which we were so touched by. They seemed to go out of their way to make your stay is as enjoyable as possible.

The 5 piece of laundry each service is also a massive bonus and such a great little touch.

If we go back to Phnom Pehn we would most definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room prior to arrival and had a tucked away room which was perfect for us.
