Cambodians are generally a happy and polite people, especially around the Cambodian New Year period. We stayed two nights at this hotel. The front facade oozes French Colonial Indo-Chinese atmosphere and the amenities inside are luxurious and pleasing to the eye. This hotel is less pricey than its Siem Reap cousin, and perhaps a little more guest friendly. We arrived...

A nice hotel with very good service. We upgraded to a room with a butler and was extremely glad we did. He was very efficient and an excellent source of information.

The Raffles brand is a symbol of absolute luxury. This hotel was no exception. Our room was absolutely lovely and very comfortable, the hotel has a colonial feel to it (very reminiscent of old colonial days), the service was outstanding. The location of the hotel is excellent since it is either a short walk (or a short tuk-tuk ride) to...

We stayed at Raffles Phnom Penh last weekend for what was supposed to be the highlight of our 11 hotel stay over 4 weeks of touring in Indochina. We arrived with high expectations, we left very disappointed. So what went wrong. Firstly, we were allocated a bedroom overlooking the pool. Unfortunately, we were not told it would also be overlooking...

I would not have expected to be poisoned by a Hotel of this calibre. However several other (more than five) guests were also sick after a dinner around the pool. It was either the fish or the orange juice as there was no alcohol involved in my case. The greatest disappointment was the denial by the guest services manager and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A history of hospitality. The luxury of time. The secret charm of Cambodia. One of Asia's essential destination hotels, Raffles Phnom Penh has been the iconic resting place for the well travelled since 1929. Located in the heart of vibrant Phnom Penh, our hotel has been part of the history of the city and welcomes, as it has always done, a diverse clientele of entrepreneurs, writers, journalists, royalty and intrepid travellers from across the globe. Rooms and suites have been respectfully restored to reflect a distinguished blend of Khmer, Art Deco and French colonial architecture. Dining is an essential part of the Phnom Penh experience. In keeping with history and a sense of place, the elegant Le Royal Restaurant serves modern French cuisine and Royal Khmer cuisine with original recipes graciously gifted to Raffles from the Royal Palace. Almost as famous as the hotel itself, is the Elephant Bar where local residents and visitors alike gather over wine, whisky and cocktails. The Raffles Spa offers relaxation, rejuvenation and fitness through a considered mix of local and classic treatments, gym and spa pool. Complete your visit to Cambodia with a stay at our sister hotel Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor, a great hotel of the legendary Grand Tour of Indochina and virtually at the doorstep of the Angkor UNESCO World Heritage site. ... more   less
