    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.

How does one pronounce Phnom Penh??

by dazsin

Daftest question of the week here, but how the heck is Phnom Penh pronounced?

Re: How does one pronounce Phnom Penh??

by iaint

Well in "Phnom" the "h" does not make "Ph" into "f", if that's what you mean.

The "h" signifies that in Khmer the word starts with a soft "p" rather than a normal English "p". Somewhere between English "p" and "b".

If I remember right, the "h" in Penh signifies that the "e" is long and not short.

My ex speaks Khmer, so my knowledge is getting a bit rusty now, but I can still count up to 3! Don't ask me to write it in English tho'.

i think Khmer has over 30 letters in the alphabet, hence long "e"s are written different to short ones etc

Re: How does one pronounce Phnom Penh??

by dazsin

yeah, I kind of asumed that Penh is pronounced like 'Pen' - its just the Phnom that i'm struggling with!!

Re: How does one pronounce Phnom Penh??

by Lhenne1

I asked around a little to double-check myself first :). You pronounce it p-num pen. This link takes you to a dictionary with an audio of the pronunciation: http://www.bartleby.com/61/7/P0250700.html

Re: How does one pronounce Phnom Penh??

by monina_c

I have always pronounced it 'Pa-nom Pen'. Have I been saying it wrong for 16 years?

Travel Tips for Phnom Penh

Royal Dancers

by Blatherwick

While you are on the Royal Palace grounds you should catch a performance of the Royal Dancers. They perform on a stage near the Chan Chaya Pavilion. They were so cute and you could see the concentration on their faces even as they smiled through the routine.


by Unknownsu

Khmer culture is very hierarchical. The greater a person's age, the greater the level of respect that must be granted to them. Everyone in Khmer culture is given a hierarchical title before the name - in some cases names are shortened with the title added before the name is given - which varies in relation to the person. In some cases elders are referred to by a family title even though there is no relation, out of respect to their seniority in life. Referring to someone by the improper title is a sign of disrespect and would be assumed as improper parenting or a lack of respect for elders.

"Traineras" - Boat Festival

by elpariente

Durante tres dias viene gente de todo el pais para ver las "regatas" que estan compitiendo de dos en dos para eliminarse y asi poder llegar a la final.
La gente se sienta en la orilla del rio para ver y animar a sus remeros que se acercan para descansar y tomar fuerzas

During three days people comes from all over the country to see the Boat Race , that are cmpeting by couples to eliminate and reach the final
People seats on the River Front to see and cheer to the rowers that go to the shore to rest and to recover

Stung Meanchey

by Unknownsu

I don’t think many wander here because it is not very well known and once it is, I’m sure many would choose not to visit. Stung Meanchey is an industrial landfill on the outskirts of Phnom Penh. Many tourists pass by it on the way to the Choeung Ek Killing Fields oblivious to the going-ons of this garbage dump. Hundreds of the poorest people in Cambodia scavenge through the garbage on a day to day basis looking for recyclable materials with hopes of making an average of 2000 Cambodian Riels ($0.50 US cents) a day.

Scattered among the plastic, metal, paper and rotting food is medical waste. Disease-ridden needles are a norm and poses threats as the dump doubles as a playground for its resident children.

A majority of the workers are teenagers and children.

Please take the time to read about this place in my travelogue.
