The best value for money in Phnom Penh (or anywhere for that matter). I had a private pool room, and it was wonderful being able to get up and pop outside for a swim. The welcome at reception was very friendly and efficient. The garden pool is a real feature and it was delightful breakfasting by the pool; the breakfast was substantial, fresh passion fruit juice, fruit, toast and pastries and eggs, all within the room rate. Lunch was a short menu (foreign and Khmer), but tasty and substantial. I would strongly recommend anyone visiting PP to choose this hotel.

Room Tip: Go for one of the private pool rooms

The setting is what this is hotel is all about. When you come in through a small door off the street you enter a lovely courtyard which contains a nice swimming pool with big lounge beds under the trees. it is a nice place to relax away from the heat. The rooms themselves are not outstanding just average for the class but clean and comfortable. You ordered breakfast from a menu but you seemed to be able to have whatever you wanted on the menu so it should satisfy most people.

Pavilion is my favorite hotel among the places I've stayed in Cambodia. The garden pool has several areas to sit back, relax and enjoy a drink or two. The room was spacious with a huge balcony to boot! We were greeted by a very helpful and informative front desk personnel who not only did the usual welcome routine, but also went the extra mile by taking out a map and showing us places of interest within the area while sipping on fresh passionfruit juice. Check-in also comes with a free 25min massage which was expertly done and the best we got while we were in Cambodia. I always looked forward to breakfast at the Pavilion because their bread is delicious and they offer alternatives aside from eggs (pancakes, khmer fried rice, veggies, porridge, museli, etc.). In fact on our last day, the staff asked if we want to try more than one of their alternatives which was so kind of her. I highly recommend the Pavilion if you're looking for a quiet charming place to stay.

After a long and dusty drive from Siem Reap we arrived at dusk to this oasis in Phnom Penh. We loved it from the minute we arrived to teh minute we left. We stayed int he two bedroom suite with our two teenage kids for three nights and experienced wonderful hospitality, friendliness and great service. I would not stay anywhere else next time.

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at The Pavilion, we only wish that we could stay have stayed longer but they were full. The hotel pool was beautiful, and a relaxing end to a hot/dusty day in the city. The room (we were in the Garden Bungalow) was spacious and the staff at the hotel was top-notch. They were all very friendly and responsive; they helped us plan out a quick city tour and arranged for our bags to be transferred to our next hotel (their sister hotel, the 212 which was also very nice). Also, the massage at the spa was really great -- and at a really great price (w opted for the longer massage than the complimentary welcome option! We definitely recommend without reservations.

Room Tip: We loved the privacy and rustic-romantic feel of the garden bungalow....

We also had a pool villa and yes, the water in our 'private spa' was cold but after a day walking around a hot, dusty Phnom Penh it was very welcome. Ours wasnt inundated with leaves but there were a couple of frangipani blooms floating on the surface, I kid you not it really was that picturesque! We were here 3 nights, we spent some time around the main pool on a lounge but most of our time exploring the sights of PP on our first visit. The hotel was small but elegant, the staff friendly and helpful, the review describing it as an "oasis" couldn't have been more accurate, peaceful and lovely after the chaos of PP. sitting in our private garden spa sipping cocktails was a perfect way to unwind before changing and venturing out for dinner. We had no problems with our room, nothing shabby about it, we're both close to six feet tall (one just over, one just under) and we found the room, the bed and the bathroom to be perfectly roomy. The breakfast was limited, not some big buffet but it offered everything we wanted and was hot, tasty and more than adequate. There is also a free library including dvds, not extensive, books and dvds left behind by previous guests but useful for those hours spent lounging by the pool. Someone else has also already commented on the price, it really is 5 star quality at a 2 star price. Well worth it, great value and we will definitely be coming back to PP and likely to stay here again.

Room Tip: It's not much extra but well worth the price to get a garden villa room.

Fantastic place to stay! This charming place is set in beautiful colonial villa. Breakfast is simple, but tasty and very filling. The pool and daybeds nestled around the garden are great places to relax after a day exploring Phnom Penh. Definitely recommended.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
It all started when we fell in love with a hidden gem of French-Khmer architecture from the 1920s near Wat Botum, one of the most venerable and original pagodas in Phnom Penh. Renovation and remodeling were led with due respect for the character of a building which had been, as we learnt it later on, a private retreat for Queen Consort Sisowath Kossamak, the late King Sihanouk's mother. Opened on August, 18, 2006 with 10 rooms, The Pavilion has slowly expanded over the years, offering now 36 accommodations throughout three more period buildings that have been added to the property: "The New House", former residence of the chief veterinarian at the Royal Palace; "The New Villa", formerly the private residence of a Cambodian senator, and "The Sun-Pool Villa", our latest addition which used to be lodgings for diplomats based in Phnom Penh. Each one has its own style and atmosphere, with distinctive architectural features such as an elaborate wooden stairway, intricate iron wrought railings, etc… ... more   less
