Hilary's Boutique Hotel: Lovely hotel with pool

Nice little hotel with good breakfast. It's not far from the 'Golden Street' but far enough to be in a quiet street. Walking distance from everything (20 lazy walk to royal palace).

Reception and waiting staff very nice. Room not very big but well appointed but massive bed and lovely bathroom.

There is one cat that seems to hang on around the hotel and can be a bit of a pest at dinner but it was shooed away by staff when it became apparent it was annoying us.

The touristy tuk tuk tours offered by the hotel were a bit on the pricey side as they charge per person. Best to negotiate a price with a tuk tuk in the street. However the price they offered to teh airport was quite competitive.

Very relaxed and lovely pool with comfy loungers. Yummy cocktails.

Phnom Penh guest House: Just an ordinary Guest House

This Guest House is owned by the people who own Mekong River Pub and Restaurant around the corner. Since I was meeting friends there for drinks on my arrival from Europe, It was recommended that I stay here. I knew it was a mistake. I should have stayed Nyemo NGO s Le Rits or even Naga
this is run down and absolutely not even value for money since I am sure there are other places of this quality for half the price. i do not recommend this place

Diamond Palace 11 Hotel: Very acceptable hotel downtown Phnom Penh

Very comfatable, small hotel, frienfly staff, reasonably basic, but all you need.

Over 4 floors BUT no lift. You have to climb stairs.

Rooms are smallish but adequate

Khmer City Hotel: Almost close to everything

We booked 2 rooms- double and triple beds. We only paid about 7.5USD per head for 1 night. The owner, an old man, doesn’t speak English but there’s a staff that speaks English fluently and smiles frequently unlike the owner who’s a bit snob. The rooms have its own bathroom, air conditioned, tv, telephone and refrigerator. We also booked here the bus going back to HCMC- Mekong Express Limousine Bus, 15USD for each person.

Khmer City hotel is the best place to stay when it comes to location since it’s very near to almost everything- the market, shopping center, bars, etc. It’s only about 5 minutes walk to the Sorya Shopping Center and the market.

Circa 51 Hotel, Phnom Penh: Peaceful Haven

Arrival in Phnom Penh International Airport can lull one in to a false sense of what awaits outside the Terminal. The calm efficiency going through Passport Control and Customs soon gives way to the ‘real’ Phnom Penh when you exit the Airport. We had arranged a pick-up through the Hotel and we were delighted to see our name on a plaque held up by a smiling gentleman.
We arrived at the Hotel Circa 51 rather early & when our room wasn't ready we were given blankets & pillows & given the chance to rest at the poolside. An unusual, but one of the most memorable welcomes we have had on our travels.
The Staff were always ready with advice on where to visit, markets to go to and places to eat, all with that never ending smile that seems to be part and parcel of the Cambodian people.

Overall Circa 51 has managed to create a haven of peace in what can be an overwhelming city & I have no hesitation in recommending it to those in search of a smaller, intimate Boutique Hotel in a very busy busy busy city.

Bits & Pieces:
Rooms: Comfortable, clean, well shaded (a welcome necessity).
Entrance Foyer: This area also well shaded and kept clean and tidy. The pool was well used by residents while we were there but was well monitored and also kept clean with no shortage of towels or places to sit or lounge.

RAFFLES LE ROYAL

Raffles Hotel Le Royal is the premier hotel in Phnom Penh, a hotel with rare attributes of history and style. It was first established in 1929, and in its early days, had a diverse international clientele comprising of intrepid travelers, writers, journalists and distinguished royalty.

After undergoing a meticulous restoration and refurbishment programme by Raffles International, this grand historic hotel now fulfills all the requirements of a modern world-class hotel, yet exudes an old-world charm through its distinctive style with an elegant yet comfortable, classic yet casual feel.

Located in the heart of the city of Phnom Penh, Raffles Hotel Le Royal is a 20-minute drive from Pochentong International Airport and within easy access of the city's attractions such as the Royal Palace, Central Market, Russian Market and the National Artefacts Museum.

VELKOMMEN GUESTHOUSE

Velkommen Guesthouse is walking distance from most of the downtown city attractions including the Royal Palace, National Museum, the famous Central Market, Wat Phnom and the Night Market. Nightlife, restaurants and entertainment are just around the corner on Sisowath Quay.

at the front of the guesthouse, an old woman is selling porridge for breakfast ^.^

The Salita Hotel

We stayed 2 night 14/12/2011 and checked out on 16/12/2011. The service is above average. Room service is good and the 2 rooms we have are clean. We have good breakfast at the rooftop restaurant, which from there we enjoy cool morning wind and to have Phnom Penh view from top. The Wifi signal is strong. The front office staff can speak good English which help a lot in communication. Walking out from the hotel, we can easily meet the local people and their living style. The tuk-tuk with the Salita Hotel advertisement is parked out just in front for your convenience.

Encounters Hostel & Guesthouse: Signboard say Nomads

we got basic 3 mixed dorm at 5USD each
Directions:
Encounters (or Nomads) is in the center of the diamond formed by Wat Phnom pagoda, the Central Market, the railway station and the Night Market, each 5-7 min walk. We are easy to find but your taxi or tuktuk driver may not know Phnom Penh as well as you do! Tell them to drive from the railway station to the night market and you will find us mid-way on the right hand side.
Better still, use our free local pickup service ($7 from the airport).

Landscape Hotel: Very good¡

The hotel was practically new when I visited Phnom Penh (dec 2010), rooms are very nice and modern, clean and cheap (US55/night), breakfast was included but I could not take it since I left quite early. The funny thing is the window in the bathroom , I dont image if I travel with my mother in this hotel and I enter to toilet¡¡¡ (see picture). It is located 1km away of the bars and night activity area, then if you go out at night just take a tuk tuk to come back.

The Eighty8 Phnom Penh: Phnom Penh's Best Hostel

One of the nicest hostels in South East Asia. Rooms are spacious. Bunk beds are clean. Free swimming pool and wifi use. Their friendly staff and Tuktuk drivers made my first time in Cambodia such a breeze.

I strongly recommend this hostel/resort in Phnom Penh.

They have this gig called "Fruity: Phnom Penh" every 2nd Saturday night of the month where they showcase the best of UK music. It's like a house party.

Lebiz Hotel & Library: Very New Age in a Very Old City

Wow this Hotel seems out of its element here in dusty Phnom Phen.Its so bright and modern . Hip young people are waiting at reception offering a cool drink when you arrive.

The room is very white and large with a 42 inch TV ,a comfortable bed and all conveniences.
The continental breakfast was nice with lots of fruit and eggs made to order.There are a few restaurants around withing walking district and Central Market is next door..

The bustling and more happening Riverfront area is a $3.00 tuk tuk rise away.
At $65.00 per night I would stay here again.

Simon's II Guesthouse: A good choice in the Boeng Kak area

******The latest news is that Boeng Kak is no more******
They are filling in the lake and although Simons II is still there, most other buildings have been demolished. Sad news but even sader for the people that live in this area.

Boeng Kak (pronunced Bang-Ka) is a popular area in Phnom Penh for budget guesthouses. Situated on the western side of Boeng Kak lake (a filthy lake definitely NOT for swimming) it is however a pleasant area to sit back on one of the many cheap gusthouses that line the lake and have a cold beer whilst watching the sunset. These days may be numbered, as the lake is gradually filled in. Will update this tip after my next visit in March 2011.
After checking out several of the cheaper guesthouses along the lake (and not really liking what I saw) Simons II stuck out.....painted pink & on the main drag!
The rooms are spotless, with satellite LCD TV, aircon, hot water and very comfy beds. The price in March 2009 was $18 for a double. The owner let me have the double room on my own for $16. I would certainly stay here again.

Proper shower (over bath) nice after so many wet bathrooms (no proper shower or curtain)
