Salita Hotel – Phnom Penh
I stayed 2 nights at the Salita Hotel in Penh in May 2012. On my last visit to Phnom Penh in Dec/Jan I stayed at different hotel but based upon the write-ups, I decided to give Salita a try. When I made my online reservation a month or more before, I requested a single with one queen bed and the reservation was confirmed. When I arrived the staff informed me that there were no singles available so they gave me a room with two single beds. The rooms are small so having 2 beds in the room did not leave much floor space. That was not a major problem however the staff didn’t seem particularly anxious to find me a single-bed room. The bathroom has a shower-in-the tub arrangement. I prefer a separate shower stall – not a big deal – just my personal preference.
On the positive side, the hotel is located conveniently near the Olympic Stadium and a Lucky Supermarket and restaurants within a few blocks. Salita’s restaurant is on the tenth floor providing a panoramic view of that part of the city. The elevator is modern and air-conditioned. The AC in the room was adequate but the restaurant is quite open to the outside with no AC – only fans making it quite warm in the summer. The in-room Wi-Fi connection worked very well.
Salita’s restaurant serves only Khmer food so if you crave a hamburger or some other western cuisine, you’ll have to take a tuk-tuk to the Lucky Market area which is what I did on my second night there. Based upon not having a single bed room, the non-air conditioned restaurant, and a limited menu, I decided to leave the Salita and return to the hotel where I had stayed five months prior where I know the menu, the staff, and everything is comfortably cool.
