I have been in this hotel several times over the last couple of years and tried out a few rooms in the hotel.
You have 2 types of rooms: larger ones facing the quay/street with plenty of natural lights and a small balcony and smaller rooms at the back with no windows but 2 vertical strips of semi-transparent glass panes that does let in some lights during the day. The rooms facing the quay are more expensive and actually quite noisy at time. The ones is the back however is quieter.
The bed is comfortable but somehow the bed sheet cover is always short here which makes your feet tends to touch directly on the bed. I guess the hotel expects guests to sleep on the cover but I find that a bit strange.
The bathroom is decently appointed however the shampoo and shower gel are in ceramic containers that sometimes does not contain enough portions if you are the type who takes 2-3 showers a day. A quick call to the front-desk does fix that though.
This hotel is managed by the same group as handle the FCC a few blocks away. Over the years, the services are still as good but amenities has gone down somewhat. The last time that I was visiting, there were no slippers.
I am happy that the free breakfast that comes with the room is still as plenty and good as usual. Stick with the western choice and you will be happy and stay away from the Char kway teow.
The location is great right outside the is probably the nicest place in Phnom Penh to have a stroll. The river does make the area cooler than in town. There are plenty restaurants around the corner that caters to all types of pockets. There is a local market 2 blocks at the back of the restaurant that could be a nice discovery walk in the early morning. Plenty of local establishments just a few blocks further for the adventurous minds and stomach. At night, the blocks in the back can turn into a mini red-lights district so family travelers must be aware. As long as you stay on the main street on the quay, all is good.
