My wife and I are on a budget trip and wanted to stay near the river front (5th to 7th April 2012). This guesthouse was by far the cheapest we could find in this location, good for both the night market and the palace. There are girly bars on the same street, but they are not in your face and they seem to be on most streets in Phnom Penh anyway. The staff at this family run Guest house were great, perhaps the most helpful we met during our trip in Cambodia, always smiling and happy to give advice, information and make arrangements.
We took a cheaper room on the second floor with no window. The room was clean, but looking worn, the sheets were clean but not bright white. There was a slight smell in the bathroom but with the fan running and door closed it didn't bother us. AC unit in the room was silent which was great for sleeping and there was a new flat screen TV with cable channels.
Our room was basic and ok for a couple of nights (I can't comment on the other rooms), it was definitiely the staff that made our stay.
