I had arranged other accommodation in Phnom Penh for the period I intended being there, but changed my itinerary at the last moment forcing me to look for an alternative hotel (my preferred hotel being booked out for the revised dates). Having no access to TA, I relied on Lonely Planet which rated The Paragon their best choice. I phoned from Siem Reap and was impressed with the staff member's efficiency and good grasp of English. I booked a river view room for US$33 per night. The room turned out to be quite spacious, with comfortable beds and functioning TV, air-con and fridge. The room was spotlessly clean and there was access to the outside balcony - which was practically our own as no-one seemed to use it. The view of the river and bustling street below was excellent! I was especially delighted with the location of this hotel which was in the heart of Sisowath Quay, surrounded by restaurants and bars. It was very exciting! There were a few minor issues with the bathroom design, like water dripping onto the floor when showering etc, but for $33 who cares?! I would certainly stay here again. Who might not like it? Any one who is a really light sleeper as there is some street noise. There is no room service or restaurant on premises (but these are all available a few steps away from the front door) so bear that in mind if it's important to you. The cheaper rooms seemed identical to what we had except they had no windows at all - so take that into consideration too. Overall, I was very happy here!
