Dara Reang Sey Hotel Phnom Penh
Great Location, Friendly Management
Conveniently located two blocks from the the riverfront and within walking distance to markets and famous sights, Dara Reang Sey Hotel is a friendly family-run establishment. The hotel was recommended to me by a fellow VTer and I was not disappointed. The hotel delivered value for money with the rooms clean although the bathroom was very small. My only criticism would be the steep narrow stairs up to the rooms. For anyone with mobility restrictions, the stairs may prove to be quite a problem. (I stayed in the annex across the road). The location was ideal and the friendliness and helpfulness of the owner made the stay even more pleasant. Airport transfers were easy to arrange and a very competitive price and I also booked a private car down to Sihanoukville which was very well priced.I stayed here for three nights before heading off to Ankor Wat and for a further night at the end of my holiday. Overall, very good value for money.
Unique Quality: Excellent tour desk.
Reasonable coffee shop.
Friendly Family Run Hotel in Phnom Pen
Hi - I stayed at the Dara Reang Sey Hotel, http://www.darareangsey.com/pp/, a few weeks ago. Pretty close to Sisawath Quay, rooms are clean with aircon & good shower and cost $15 - $20 a night. Family run and are very friendly and helpful.
Unique Quality: Good sized rooms, on-site restaurant, onward travel booking, close to all major Phnom Pen sites.
Directions: Couple of streets back from Sisowath Quay
Not So Good
I find this hotel old and poorly maintained.
The air-con was rattling all night long, giving me a sleepless night.
Not a good place to stay if you are looking for bug-free bathroom. We found an inch-long centipede crawling on the bathroom floor. Thank God they provide slippers. There were geckos (small lizards) hiding behind the water heater tank. I didn't get to see them but they dropped "evidence" on the bath tub.
The fridge is also not working. Smelly water flowed out when I opened its door.
Advice: Check out the room before you confirm staying here.
Conveniently located in Phnom Penh
This hotel is only one street away from the Old Market and a few streets away from the Central Market, Wat Phnom, Royal Palace and the National Musuem.
The hotel is also a restaurant that a plate of fried rice for USD 2.
Hotel also organises day trips to Chiso Mountain and Cheong Ek Killing Fields, a tad pricey for a day trip at 50 USD via mini van.
They do provide free pick up from terminal/airport/ferry terminal.
Basic clean room.
It has a large group of stayers, from backpackers to local businessman. As the hotel is on a busy street, you can lots of honking throughout the day. Our neighbours also switch on their TV at full blast volume at 6.30am (local time)
Unique Quality: Recommended to stay here if you like to walk around the streets of Phnom Penh. Their streets are easily recognisable as most street names are in numeric form. In fact, we decided not to ride on any tuk tuk since all the places of interests are within walking distances, except for Toul Sleang Musuem and the killing fields.
Directions: a street away from old market.
Budget, clean and central accommodation
This little hotel has spawned - and has rooms on both sides of the street. Very clean, airconditioned, fridge, television - comfortable beds and a functional bathroom. No nasties here at all! Airconditioning was actually cool too - not to be taken for granted! Hotel also had fairly good security, and option of hotel safe use.
A very clean and well placed corner cafe is available for all meals - Khmer food and Khmer prices!
Staff were helpful, most had fairly good English, and happily arranged a driver for daytripping and airport transfer. Hotel was a short stroll from the river, and an easy walk to the Grand Palace and Museum.
Will also collect from point of entry to the city as well.
Budget hotel with a nice roof terrace
I had a no frills room on the third floor with a bathroom and a ceiling fan.
Unique Quality: Nice roof terrace on the third floor. Hotel also has restaurant on the first floor.
They will help you with all your travel needs from boat tickets to Siem Reap to a car and driver for a day.
I believe I paid about $20 per night.
