Hotel on the crossing of three rivers

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 17, 2013

The hotel is situated on the banks of the Tonle Sap, Mekong and Bassac rivers and has quite perfect situation to city research. It's a 3-4 star hotel with good quality and for example there is an excellent gym with newest equipment and very handsome locker and restrooms close to pool area.

The hotel is one of the best places to parties in the ball room and during our stay there were some Laos governments big dress parties when all the best Cambodian cars (mostly Lexus) were parked on the area.

Tuktuks are waiting on the area all the time, remember to bargain.

Great king size bed and large rooms. Only cons was quite noisy air conditioner, but with using "hand hammer" I got it repaired (for some time :)

American style accommodations

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on October 5, 2008

Rooms were great. Price was $125 a night and was totally worth it. Originally, we had booked a $25 a night place that was very biker friendly and quite a disgusting place and we could not stay there. It was icky. To our surprise, we were soooo happy to get this place. It's American standard but after being on a 5 hour sweaty bus ride- to arrive at our crappy original reservation (and to be able to get out of it)- this was dreamy. See video of arrival if you want to see the outside of the hotel.

Unique Quality: Room service was great and inexpensive, considering. The staff was helpful. The hotel had an ATM machine which were hard to come by.

Directions: Near Tonle Sap River

Phnom Penh's A-hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 25, 2008

Hotel Cambodiana looks grand from afar. Inside, it looks fabulous as well. Its pastry shop offers the best goodies in town, its nightclub has a live band, its two resto offer fine cuisine, its spa offers excellent services. And the room rate - affordable. I guess what I enjoyed the most is the room itself because it wasn't only spacious, there were bottled water, coffee, tea and creamer, water boiler, bath robe and slippers! O yes, the hotel has a swimming pool overlooking the river. It was so nice to watch the fishermen in the early morning!

Unique Quality: I must say the hotel staffs are professional. The traditional music at the entrance makes you feel very comfortable at once. And, taxis to the airport can be booked without any hassle.

If This Is 4-Star I'm A Banana

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 2, 2007

It’s big – stretching along the river front and set back from the road in well maintained lawns, the hotel looks very stately and impressive. Sadly, however, the promise of a deluxe room in this supposedly 4-star hotel is far from realised inside.

Things looked promising with a very straightforward check-in, even though the lobby was hectic with tour groups and passers-by. Our room, however, was very disappointing. It was old, dreary, worn – every adjective to describe tired and dull is applicable. The bed was so old that the mattress offered no support at all, the bathroom was just plain bad – the bath stained with years of water dripping, the walls crumbling and peeling.

Wifi is available but you need to buy access via the front desk. I never asked how much it was.

Breakfasts were pretty reasonable – a large, if busy buffet. The negative aspect though, was that they insist on cooking the meats, sausages etc in the same room, thus you emerge from the dining room with a distinct smell of fried food on your clothes.

All in all, a poor 3-star hotel falsely labelling itself as a 4-star.

Unique Quality: Nothing of note stood out whatsoever. Just a dull, dreary hotel that doesn't make the slightest effort.

Mekong-view !

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 25, 2006

A vast building, the only luxury hotel right on the banks of the Mekong River.Minutes away from most attractions in Phnom Penh. Hotel Cambodiana is suited for leisure or business travellers and offers privacy, relaxation and recreation.Rooms with views of the Royal Palace or the historic Mekong River.

Unique Quality: Good Restaurant, good food and a large pool, immediately neighboring the river.
If you dont mind to stay in such a big hotel, the Cambodiana is the right place for you

Directions: near the evening street market by the banks of River mekong
