We stayed here for our trip for two days. The staff were very accommodating and let us have late check in which was really usefual for us. The breakfast really sets you up for the day. Its a nice hotel tucked away from the busy area. You should get a tuk tuk from the hotel to see the sites. Thanks

Visited Phnom Penh on a work vacation with my mom and stayed at Circa 51 one night. Staff were all extremely friendly and accommodating! We visited when the hotel was not busy and management offered us an upgrade on our room for a discounted price. We especially enjoyed meeting one of the staff members Sorya, and had an excellent breakfast... More

Stayed for 5 days for work and a little r&r. Staff very friendly and very helpful in organizing a trip to the province. Great restaurant menu - recommend the chicken Masala. They also organise some unique things to see and do, which I will try on my return. Overall a great experience

We had a great time staying at this quirky, boutique hotel / guest house. It has a 60s style charm and the staff are very friendly and helpful... (Ask Sorya about the monkey dance!) I would come back for sure.

Stayed here for three weeks and loved it. A truly unique experience - a wonderful space in the middle of the city. An oasis in the city, fit for a Princess, girt by tortoises. To top it off the kindest, most accommodating staff. Do yourself a favour and try one of Brok's cocktails - the best Mai Tai ever -... More

Circa 51 offers a pleasant stay in the heart of the city. As we arrived, we immediately felt welcome. The reception area, bar and pool are really nice and the rooms are spacious and nicely decorated.

A really pleasant, relaxed place to stay made even nicer by the charming Sererya and Rajiv and their lovely team. Rajiv has a policy of not welcoming (seedy) sex tourists, of which I was unaware but exceedingly grateful. Thank you for a very pleasant stay 'Mr Tom'.
