It is a bit far from the airport, but it is right behind the National Museum and Royal Palace, so that's good. No airport shuttle, but they are happy to set you up with a cab to wherever you want to go. Pool on the upstairs deck is cool. Breakfast is good. Our room was terrific, and we were upgraded The evening wait staff at the restaurant was surprisingly inattentive for how empty the place was.
Being a first time traveler to Phnom Penh, I was worried that the photos may be better than reality. Actually, it was much better than I expected. The room was well appointed and well finished with a great shower. The AC worked really well, and the bed was quite comfortable. However, the highlight was definitely the rooftop pool! It was beautifully and uniquely designed and really made me feel like I was on a posh vacation. The restaurant had incredibly affordable specials, including a 3 canapé plate + cocktail for $6.95 USD!1 If I HAVE to find a complaint, it would be that non-guests can buy day passes to the pool, making it a bit crowded on the weekend.
Room was great! However they put two single beds in the room when we had paid for a double bed! This was frustrating as we are a young couple obviously wanting to sleep in the same bed not separate single ones Hotel reception couldn't have been any less helpfully! They wouldn't do anything to help out! They made a mistake with our room which they didn't even apologize to us about it! Not even an offer to fix the problem!
The hotel is in a great location with rooms facing over the river. The Royal Palace is just 5 minutes walk away and the bars / restraurants a 10 minute walk down the river front (which is a nice walk). The actual rooms are very well setup, being bright, clean and big with excellent bathrooms. The breakfast is ok, but I did expect more. Also the hotel did not have an internet terminal for me to use. They have wireless in the rooms but travelling without a computer meant I needed an actual computer. However they did say it was to be setup by end of 2010. If not it you can go across the road to Hotel Cambodia to use theirs. Also there is no 24hr room service, closing time is driven by when the restaurant closes.
The was very frendly and helpful. The hotel is located in a few minutes walk from the Palace and Pagoda. It is not a big disadvantage but a part of the hotel is still under cunstruction / renovation. When it is finished I'm sure it will be an ideal place to stay in Phnom Penh
a very pleasant surprise, we realised that it was a new hotel and not everything was perfect but we will definitely stay there again, the views from our room were amazing and its position made it very convenient for trips around pnom penh
