A nice hotel in Phnom Penh that can sleep 4

Hi all,

New to this forum as a poster, but love reading. I am heading to Cambodia in late Dec early Jan to do a week volunteering at the Ponheary Ly foundation (thanks to the very helpful posts on this forum). Going as 2 adults and 2 teenagers. But my question is any recommendations for a good hotel that sleeps 4 or has definate interconnecting rooms in Phnom Penh as we have 4 nights prior to our volunteering. Also any recommendations as to the best way to get from PHN to REP, (have read lots of differing options). thanks in advance :)

We just came back from PP and loved Cambodia. We stayed at the Kabiki hotel. See my review at tripadvisor.com/ShowUserReviews-g293940-d794…

The Kabiki will have rooms to suit you as we are also a family of four (but not sure if your teenagers would sleep in a bunk bed?) If they are happy to do so, then you can get one room with 1 QS bed & 1 bunk bed. We had ample room to move around it. Also, there is a sofa which can easily be used as a bed too but not suitable for a 6ft person!

The other room we stayed at were "interconnecting" rooms 6& 7. Hubbie and I had a smallish room with a QS bed and my kids were in the itnerconnecting room next door (two single beds) It was a great set up. Very happy.

What we really liked was the location as the Kabiki is not along the Sisowath Quay tourist strip. As a result, we got to see everyday life around us (see my photo of the street outside the hotel) I loved the little glimpse into normal Cambodian life. It was exactly what I wanted my children to see and experience.

Regardless where you stay, have a great trip.

Agree with Beryl, I travelled with my young son and we stayed at the Kabiki on three different occasions and thoroughly loved it - have also posted review. Pool area is great and often there are lots of kids/ teenagers at the pool so good opportunity to them all to socialise.

Easy walk to the Quay, Palace and other attractions and tuk tuks, are available just at the end of the street.

Rooms are comfortable, but extremely sparse but have all the necessary requirements you need. Outdoor restaurant is open all day and they serve a lovely breakfast (no choice though) but the setting is relaxing and the young staff delightful.

Some rooms have their own outdoor garden and some are accessed by going through reception. We looked at both options and went for the outdoor garden option, have your own gate and a little more privacy. Found I could hang our pool towels out to dry etc.

Hi kerriemel,

Just another suggestion - might be wise to get the Kabiki hotel's driver etc to organise a pickup from the airport as we found that the hotel is not easy to find. In particular, we arrived at night and it was harder again.

If your driver does need help, tell him that Kabiki is near Independence Monument and in the same compound/area as Prime Minister Hun Sen. We found that this helped immensely.

Lastly, here is a link which I wrote for future travelers with families. It has hints and suggestions re malaria which I collated from TA . I hope you find it useful

Have a lovely trip!

beryl_be,

We are heading off on 4n\th November and staying at the Blue Lime - not that that matters but what I was wondering if you could private message me in regards some places to eat Cambodian food. We are doing a cooking course as we always do but cannot seem to find many authentic eating places that Australians have done a TA review.

Many thanks, Keren
