We had taken the river facing suite and stayed for 2 days and had a wonderfully luxurious time. It is a cozy yet luxurious and comfortable boutique hotel. Above all it is environment friendly in many of its operations like using recycled paper to the way they do their laundry.
the location is fantastic with a wonderful view of the Tonle sap river. It is one of the most happening areas of Phnom Penh as many good and famous restaurants and pubs are located within 500 meters. It is located close to many attractions (National museum, old market, night market, royal palace, silver pagoda) You can either walk to them or take a tuk-tuk for very cheap. It is also close to bus stop for buses going to siem reap or sihanoukville or other places. The evening strolls on the river bank is wonderful.
The View from room:
Awesome view. It is wrongly said by some people that lower floors don’t have a good view. I was on the first floor (facing river) and had a fantastic view of the river and also the park on the pavement.(See Photos). Sitting on the rooms balcony and enjoying watching the ships sail by was wonderful. There is a kids park and an open air gym on the pavement on the river bank (kind of like Phnom penhs Venice Beach CA.)
The Room :
Although it is a midst the bustle and entertainment, the room is completely soundproof for a good nights sleep. The room is hugely luxurious .WiFi signal strength is too good as they have separate routers for every room with separate bandwidth connections!! (the signal was so strong that I could browse the net sitting on the river bank, across the road, 150 m from my room) The bathroom is colossal with a tub, separate shower room (separated from the toilet room) and all well-equipped and facilitated even with the smallest of things as cotton rolls, toothbrushes and aroma candles and 24 hr hot steaming water!
Other facilities include : Huge TV with BOSE home theater, Reasonable mini bar rates, Oil heated aroma therapy equipment, Huge beds, 24 hour tea and coffee facility, Bathrobe and slippers, Laundry, Hair dryer, Big chairs with leg rest, AC temp controlled, Remote controlled fans and lights, LAN port.
Breakfast and food:
The breakfast is Scrumptious! Best scrambled eggs ever! They freshly bake their baguettes and croissants and other awesome bread. Cinnamon bread and walnut bread are too good. The room service is available 24 hrs. (refer photo of menu)
The Lounge on the ground floor overlooking the river has a good collection of wine, and the cocktail menu is also good.
The rooftop café has an outstanding panoramic view at night and the food is delightful. Cocktails are innovative and loved the chicken satay!
Staff and services:
Typical Cambodian staff with very friendly and helpful and caring behavior. Service was always with a smile and was very prompt. The room maid Miss Putheara was very prompt and friendly.
The people at the reception as well as the dining were also efficient and sweet! The check in was smooth. They booked bus tickets to siem reap for us. They arrange full day tuk tuk as well as taxi tours for very reasonable rates. They also always had change for tuk tuk drivers as we had only 50$ bills. Money exchange is also available for certain currencies.
All in all a good experience and a wonderful time at the Quay. Thanks to all the working members at this hotel!
