I recently stayed at the 252 with close friends and we were met with the most amazing service. Everyone at the 252 catered to our every desire. I have never had service so wonderful before. At times, we didn't even want to leave the hotel because the pool area was so inviting. We will definitely return to stay here again!...

Go to the Plantation instead if the room deals are similar. You get much more for your money and it's much much nicer. I've been to both and tried the 252 for a change. I wish I hadn't. The Plantation is much more refined with a bigger pool, better food and no pop music.

I stayed at the 252 for only 2 nights, but the overall impressions were positive: 1) the staffs were great - they let me check in early (I arrived at 9AM) and let me check out late as well, because they said it was not high season so they were happy to oblige. Truly wonderful! 2) the pool in front...

The hotel was located centrally and was a quiet oasis in the busy town. The room was large and had a balcony overlooking the pool. We were on the top floor and there was no lift which was OK for us. The food and service was fantastic. Dining by the pool was pleasant and the prices were reasonable. Our only...

Stayed here for 4 nights, good sleeping arrangements and set up. Beds could have been slightly comfier (mattresses on top of concrete), and could have a couple more breakfast options (omelet or granola), but otherwise this place is great. Friendly, helpful staff, good service, relaxing space. Will absolutely stay here again when back in Phnom Penh

After a loooong flight from the UK, this was the perfect spot to acclimatise, relax and get ready to explore Phnom Penh. It was in a great location, Tuk Tuks readily available and just a little bit outside the main city hubbub area to escape. The pool was a welcome relief from the June heat and after a city tour...
