The service was professional and overall good.
The deluxe room reasonably large but there were signs of wear and tear in the bedroom (wall decoration stickers were torn and falling off) and in the bathroom (cracks in the sink, rusted shampoo and soap dispensers). The pillow cases were rather yellowish/grey rather than white but the rest of the linen was ok. The mattress is firm but not too hard.
The room was clean but extensively sprayed with room freshener which can be quite suffocating. Overall the room lacks of atmosphere and was very similar any hotel in this price category. The TV is mounted on the wall opposite the bed but can not be oriented so that it can be watched from the sofa bed. The Chinese wooden chairs in the room, although gracious, are horribly uncomfortable.
The room on the third floor offers a great view of Phnom Penh but there are no shades/blinds hence the continuous use of AC is mandatory. Choosing a room on a lower floor where you can benefit from tree's shade is probably wiser.
Breakfast buffet was limited and of average quality: white bread, caned juice, unappealing fried eggs and omelet/beans/bacon (all prepared in advance and sitting in a stainless steal container with food warmer), sour (possibly home made) yogurt but good fruits.
The location was perfect, very central and away from most of the construction sites. However, note that cleaning personnel can start swiping the floor in the corridor at 6am which could wake up some of the residents.
I believe Villa Langka has been around and appreciated by hundreds of customers for a long time but a small effort to keep up with competitors' increasingly higher standards would not harm.
