“Not fancy”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

Don't like affecting anyones means of making a buck but I made a rash decision booking here. Not fancy at all. Depressing rooms, no lift and considering my room was on the third floor (which felt like the 23rd in the Cambodian heat) even if I was greeted by a 4 star room I still wouldn't have been impressed. In a desperate search for a positive, the car service for visiting the sites was reasonable at $13 (although didn't stay long enough to avail myself of the service).

Very clean and nice aircon rooms for 3 persons. Also really quiet compared to guesthouses in 172th Street!
Absolutely helpfull and friendly stuff! They have also good and hot showers. I would stay there again although the price is higher compared to other Hotels in pp (aprox 10dollar per P) but its totally worth it!

Lovely clean room,air con fab. Hotel is made good because the family/staff are so helpful and room rates are very good. Stayed 2 nigbts and would recommend anyone to stay. Top class and staff are informative, they have fixed prices and dont try to rip you off.good wifi too.

Room Tip: 18 dollar rooms smaller but still great

The fancy guesthouse is a really clean and friendly place to stay in Phnom Penh. When we saw the rooms we thought they just opened one year ago. We never thought it opened in 2007. The owner takes care about everything and you can see this also in the rooms.
During our travels through Southeast Asia we never had such a clean place for this price. If you are in Phnom Penh, your first choice should be the fancy guesthouse.

Room Tip: Take the room on the 2nd or 3rd floor with balcony. There you have a nice view and the rooms are sun...

Fancy guesthouse deserves all the positive feedback it receives. Our room was spotlessly clean and well equipped, providing hot water, air con, tv, a fridge and free water for the fairly standard Phnom Penh rate of $18.

The guesthouse is additionally well located, close to the river/palace and so on.

The owner is very accommodating and friendly, responding to all my emails promptly and arranging a pick up from an awkward location. Whilst some people have reported a pushy sales technique this was not our experience even when we declined an offer of a tour of the killing fields and so on.

Highly recommended.

The rooms are very clean and beautiful, the rooms also have a small balcony, complex carved wooden windows is very chic, we will not use the bathroom hot water system, the boss also specifically to the room carefully taught us how to use!All in all, highly recommended!

We didn't stay long or explore much but the room was tidy and comfortable. Bathroom was poorly designed, everything gets wet when you shower (the head is really low too, not good for tall fellas). Hosts are nice and helpful. Bookings are reliable. Internet available. Location seemed a bit random.
