“Slow Wifi”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

The hotel is in a great location right along Sisowath Quay! The room we stayed in was spacious with a big bathroom. When we got the hotel the room was clean as was the bathroom but they never cleaned the rooms while we were there. The staff were helpful as well. Overall it was a pretty good stay, but the wifi was super slow.

I have stayed in the Paragon on a number of occasions and have to say that it has gone down hill. The first time it was good in cheap. By the third time I realized why.

The rooms are simple and unimpressive. Cleanliness in the hotel is the biggest issue. One only has to look on the back steps of the hotel, lined with rats, running amongst all the old hotel rubbish, to realize where the problem starts. Each flight of steps offers a different array of trash... from boxes, to coke bottles, to abandoned bathtubs filled with even more rubbish.

I stayed in the hotel and was surprised to see a rat in my room, but when I walked around my top-floor terrace to witness the back stairwell full of garbage I decided to look even further. The entire back of the hotel is one giant trash dumb. Rats running free. Disgusting!

This hotel was recommended to me and I am now recommending it to you. The staff were very helpful and arranged pick-ups, drivers, etc. Rooms are cheap and clean with a great location right on the river side.

2 of us stayed here got 1night in feb. We paid $22 for the room which included ac, fridge, tv and slide door shower. The room was basic but spacious, ideal for a 1night stay.

The hotel is right by the waterfront, so get a balcony view room if you can for a bit extra. There are many eating places nearby making it an ideal spot for eating, drinking and nearby sightseeing.

The only reason i have given it 4 stars is because the shower door did not shut properly, leaving a v shape at the top. This coupled with the shower head with nozzles splurting water in different directions meant that the bathroom floor did get wet. Also the drain did not work so well, meaning you had to wade out of the cubicle once done. Having stayed at others places for less but with better shower facilities, we were a bit disappointed.

But, in the hurried manner in which we left i was unable to point this out to staff at the time. I think if they sort out this issue then it would be a very good value place to stay.

The title kind of says it all. The Hotel staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. It is very conveniently located, in the midst of plenty of restaurants and bars and with numerous ATMs nearby. Right on the corner of street 136 which comes alive at night and the balcony at the Paragon is a great place to sit and people watch.

The rooms are spacious and clean, the bathrooms nice with great hot/cold showers. There is also a lift, which is quite convenient.

The staff can make arrangements for tours and bus tickets if needed. This was also where we met our sweet tuk tuk driver, Ty, who drove us all around PP for the 24 hours we were there. He knew where everything was and was so lovely. We will be calling him to run us around again when we go back in 2 weeks for my last 3 days in Cambodia. I have his contact details if anyone would like to PM me.

The rooms are pretty good value considering where the hotel is. Not the cheapest you can find, but not overly expensive either.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, the noise from street 136 at night may bother you. It didn't bother...

Central location on the river. The room was clean, air conditioner worked well, bed was comfortable, linen was clean. We stayed on the first floor which was a bit noisy as Paddy Rice pub was across the road and had a band playing but they finished by mid-night. Management do seem aloof when you first arrive but when you start talking to them they are friendly and helpful.
