“The retreat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Rooms with a sense of Chinese finishings 1.5 km from the riverfront, in an upmarket area of town, aimed at Asia's rising middle class. Some day staff spoke English, by night a security guard with a reasonable grasp of Thai. But the real reason to stay is the open air restaurant with first class live singing of Khmer songs and gorgeous spicy food mixing Thai and Chinese influences.

The hotel looks impressive from outside, but when you are inside you realize that is not as good as it seems.

Personnel don't speak english (or any other language different than cambodian), the rooms are dirty and the bedroom is really awful. The bath is dirty and very small. Shower is centimeters from the wc.

We will never come again and we dont recommend it to anybody.

But the noodle soup for breakfast is pretty good. Basic rooms, but what do you expect at this price? Staff extremely helpful, decent sized room and we had great fun in the pool, even if it is indeed in the parking lot. Kampong Cham is a friendly town but yes, it is provincial. Maybe something travellers should keep in mind?

Room Tip: Stay away from the windowless rooms.

I booked a VIP room for $50 US per night, which was very comfortable, although it had two large single beds. Bathroom was basic, but everything worked. Lots of stairs, no lift, but plenty of staff to carry bags,etc. the restaurant attached had good selections of Asian food, but not much western food.
The swimming pool looked very inviting, and when I told staff I wanted to swim, they hurried to clean it of bugs and leaves, which was great, however when I started swimming my arms were touching the bottom, as the pool is only 1 metre deep until you get to the 1.5 meter deep end! It was refreshing, but difficult to have a decent workout.

Presomptuous hotel, but absolutely not up to the corresponding level. Size of rooms are OK, but make sure you dont get one of the window-less rooms. Hot water not often available, swimming pool in the middle of the parking, bed linen of questionnable cleanness, breakfast a pure desaster, I see no reason to stay here, if you have a choice. No bar, totally unfriendly atmosphere.
