“Worst Hotel In Sihanoukville”
Reviewed May 12, 2012 via mobile

As my title suggests, this is the worst place you could possibly stay even if it is quite low on the price scale.

Rooms are very basic, with gaps of around 2 inches under every door so the noise (which I will expand upon) from outside your room is constantly turned up to full volume.

We have stayed in around 8 or 9 different places in Sihanoukville, in both high and low season so I know what to expect.

Unfortunately dishonesty and a permanent headache are not what I want from a hotel.

1st night we checked in we were out till very late and didnt return until 01:00am. We were woken at 05:30 by a number of guests using our balcony for cigarette breaks and extremely loud chats. I had to go outside and take the chairs located there and put them in our room to discourage them from returning, this didn't work.

It then became apparent that it wasn't just guests who thought it acceptable to be so loud as the staff were equally if not more deafening! Constantly shouting to each other up and down the stairs.

Then it got worse and it's only 06:00am!

Workmen arrived with hammers drills and what seemed like a percussion orchestra.
They then proceeded to carry out a huge amount of building work, on what I'm not sure, but they sure loved banging their hammers on the tiled floors.

As we were up for the day we decided we'd go out as there was no way of returning to sleep.

Arriving back at 15:00pm the noise was still horrendously loud. I asked the reception if we could move rooms to a quieter part of the building and was told "full" but "noise stop in one hour" and was assured that "they no return this week".

At 21:20pm I had to return to the reception to demand that the work stops. At 21:45pm the banging finally abated.

At 05:30am the next morning we were again woken by staff shouting. At 06:45 the workmen returned.

Checked out and refused to pay for the room.

Dump with paper thin walls and awful customer service.

A simple hotel in the center of Sihanoukville. Dont expect luxury here but just a clean and simple room with a bed, a shower and a TV. There is AC and hot water. Wifi is available in the lobby only and works well. They have a car park in front with security guards at night. Location is very convenient, right next to the Lion Traffic Circle. Very close to bars, restaurants and clubs which can be noisy at night (and until the very early morning). The beach is about 10-15 minutes walk away so not that far. The rooms are very simply furnished but clean. If you look at the price, you shall remember that this hotel is of good value and that the small flaws you might face are just normal for the $$$ you spend.

Stayed here over new years when everything else in Sihanoukville was booked out.

Very basic no frills guesthouse. It was ok, I wouldn't stay here if there was an alternative. But that said it was one of the few places that didn't raise their rates to a ridiculous level during the peak period and they should be commended for that.

New, clean, light & airy place with fast wifi. It's located at the 2 Lion intersection, which is nice to be across the street from city and night life. Unfortunately that also means listening to drunken revelers until literally dawn.
