In the madness that is Phnom Penh, this is a very relaible hotel. We were here for only 2 nights but certainly enjoyed our stay. The staff were great and my friend and I were always talking with them.
We stayed in room 104, two twin beds. The A/C in the room wasn't very strong but the fan also helped. There is a smell from the bathroom but they have some kind of lemon-scent that covers it really well.
The pool isn't very big but big enough to swim around and enjoy, which you need to in most months in phnom penhh. Can order food and they will bring it pool side. On the 4th floor, I loved sitting up against the ledge and look out at the city and enjoy my breakfast.
Tuk-tuk drivers can take you anywhere you need to go for a reasonable price, can haggle with them for a dollar or two.
The only thing I didn't like was location, I would have prefer to stay near riverside and walk to restaurants and pubs. But a quick tuk-tuk will take you there. Not much street-lights at night, but not really too sketch. To be safe, use one of the tuk-tuks to get anywhere.
If I were to come back to Phnom Penh I don't know if this place would be my first choice b/c I want something closer to riverside. For those who want a quality place with great service, come here!
