“Staff are friendly, rooms are new and clean - great value for money”
Reviewed 11 January 2012

Of all the places we've been in Cambodia, this place has the friendliest and most sincere staff. They were helpful in providing adequate information about day tours to the killing fields etc and bus tickets to other cities, without being too pushy. On another note, we bought bus tickets to Siem Reap with them (for Mekong Express bus co) and it was the BEST ride we had in Cambodia! Pickup from the hotel, friendly driver and staff and arrival in Siem Reap on time.

The room is new and clean, big TV and free wifi (3 cheers to that!). There's also a DVD player and DVDs for rental (free of charge) at the lobby. The rain shower is awesome too!

It's about a 15-20 min walk or a USD2 Tuk Tuk ride to the riverside.

We were just in Phnom Penh for one night and half a morning and found this lovely hotel. Staff were really helpful in organizing tuk tuk for tour and bus tickets for the next day, even though we arrived quite late at night. Rooms are clean and decent with a semi minimalist design, although we didn't get the rooms with the painted walls, which look nice. Nice balcony too

only problem was location is not quite central, although everything is accessible by tuk tuk, not quite walking distance. we arrived rather late and couldnt find any open restaurants in the area.

otherwise nice hotel

Room Tip: Get a room with the painted walls

One night spent here.everything was fine,just two SMall remarks.1st our room was just in front of a nightclub, so a little bit noisy.then the hotel is just outside from the top activities from the city center,it means you got to take a touk touk for 1$ one way to reach the city center.

Hotel Cara is situated 1 kilometre north of the city centre and proved all e needed for a short stay in Phom Phen.The Hotel was clean, breakfast acceptable and staff were very willing to help when required. We stayed for 3 nights and managed to travel to the Killing Fields, S21 Prison and take a River boat trip while at the same time we savoured the delights of the city night life. The night club acrosss the road provided a noise irritation late on.
We left overland to visit Vietnam bu bus which was comfortable and extremely interesting crossing the riven on a ferry.
Worth considering!

Room Tip: The higher the better to gain the best views. Back rooms would avoid night club noise.
