    Maybe a star, but not much more


    I stayed at this hotel for two nights in early May, 2007. I had originally booked a room for $18 at their website, however, upon arrival I found the room to be claustrophobic, without a window and so booked a more expensive room with a window for $20. This room was quite large with comfortable bed, large bath, TV with English channels, A/C, fan, refrigerator. Room was on the third floor. Hallways in the hotel are a bit on the dark and gloomy side. There is a lift/elevator, also on the dark and gloomy side, but better than climbing the stairs. Hotel staff was helpful and courteous but a bit pushy re using their 'preferred' Tuk Tuk drivers and tours.

    Unique Quality: Really, the only outstanding feature of this hotel is its location, on Sisowath Quay, right across the street from the river and within walking distance of the ferry dock, Mekong Express Bus terminal, Royal Palace, National Museum, and many, many restaurants.
    One thing I found a bit odd about this place was the fact that they have about four internet PCs in the lobby that were only free if you ate breakfast at the hotel. This was not posted and not bought to my attention until I checked out and found they had added internet use charges to my bill. Not a large amount of money but a bit irksome nonetheless. I found this rather petty on their part.

    Right on the riverbank


    Ended up staying here after the place I originally wanted to stay was full.
    It's on Sisowath Quay and my room on the first floor had a small balcony and huge windows with great views over the Esplanade and theTonle Sap. Although it was quite expensive at USD23 per night it was worth it for the size of the room and bathroom and the location. Some Canadian friends who arrived with me got a double room with side views of the river for USD18.

    The one possible downside was that the owner was very pushy about providing all the other services of the hotel (meals, bar, taxis etc). - but I got the impression that he hadn't been open for long so was still trying to establish himself.
