An easy choice for people looking for a boutique hotel in central Phnom Penh. Gorgeously appointment rooms, comfortable and quiet. The pool is beautiful and the breakfast more than adequate. Just a quick hop to Independence Monument or the riverfront, this is an accessible place to all main attractions in Phnom Penh, without being in the midst of the tourist...

Most of the reviewers on Trip Advisor give this hotel an excellent evaluation, so it's clear that many visitors find the funky atmosphere of Circa 51 charming. I must confess the overall 'look' or concept of Circa 51 is not to my taste, but the hotel's website makes it clear that this is not one of Phnom Penh's chic french...

This is our third hotel in Phnom Penh in last three years. It was an excellent choice. It is located in a nice area that is easy walking to Street 240 and a quick Tuk Tuk ride to the waterfront/“downtown” area. When you arrive it looks a little lived in. Do not be put off by that. It is a...

We loved circa 51! The staff were unbelievably helpful and lovely. The main hostess there made us feel so at home on our first day in Cambodia and when we left, it was like saying goodbye to a friend. We loved her hospitality and dedication to our great stay in phnom penh. I wouldn't stay anywhere else again if I...

Thanks again Tripadvisor. This is truly a gem. It's an older building totally renovated. Tastefully decorated, huge room with private balcony. Great restaurant food. There's only 10 rooms do book early. We stayed in room 10. Don't know what the others are like so maybe request this room to be safe.

I stayed here with my girlfriend in the double suite with terrace and we loved it! We had our own private balcony and the room was very homey feeling. The staff were also great at organising tickets etc. The included breakfast was very nice as well. It is a little bit more expensive than a lot of places but it...

Upon arrival to this hotel we were a bit unsure. There is no signage out front. So after checking inside the gate i was assured that we were in the right place. It is located on the corner and has a large white cement fence surrounding it. We were lucky to be upgraded in our room and were pleasantly surprised...

Stayed 2 nights at this hotel. Room comfortable and clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Breakfast excellent. Tuk tuk drivers at hotel great and you can arrange with them to see whichever sites you want. Pool area compact and surrounded by nice trees feels like a sanctuary in the busy city. I would go back here and would recommend to...

I recently got married in Cambodia and Yvette and Majid and the staff at Circa 51 took care of many of our international guests. Then we stayed there for a bit too, in the luxury of the upstairs suite. It was bliss. Everyone who stayed there loved it, sitting by the pool drinking cocktails, eating delicious food both from the...
