“warning!”
Reviewed 21 May 2008

We had booked a room through the hotel's own website before it had even opened so we turned up not having read any reviews at all.

The location is excellent. Staff are delightful. The hotel is small (16 rooms) which gives it a nice feeling. The design is appealing though somewhat oddly out of place in Phnom Penh (a bit like sitting in a Wallpaper* magazine foldout on danish design whilst Phnom Penh street life rools by outside).

We had one major problem with the hotel though! There are 8 rooms at the front with a view to the quay (so-called panoramic rooms). These are very large and quite beautiful. However the other 8 rooms, at the back (the so called standard rooms) have NO WINDOWS!!! The rooms are smaller though perfectly acceptable in size and the design is quite nice but there is no window and no view to the outside world!! Very strange.

In place of what one would imagine is where the window was has been walled over to make space for a large flatscreen tv. True there are to tiny glass white-glazed panels on the sides of the wall but these are only 20cm wide and you could easily mistake them for articial lighting. We were a little upset at this as the website gives no indication that the rooms are windowless and htey did feel a little like a prisoncell as a result.

I insist though, the staff is lovely and the location is great but if you stay book a panoramic room only (they are, truly, lovely).

Reviewed 12 May 2008

The Quay is a brand new hotel affiliated with FCC, also at the waterfront. The hotel is in one word superb. The design of the rooms is brilliant with a lot of attention to detail. The hotel has a bar/restaurant downstairs where the best breakfast we ever had was served. One of the best features of the hotel is the rooftop with bar and, jaccuzi. Both places have a happy hour from 4 to 8 with very nice cocktails. Other than that, staff is extremely friendly, though check-in was a little slow, but guess that is a matter of experience. All in all, it is was a more than five star experience at a very reasonable price.
