I had a budget room on the ground floor at the back. The room was very spacious, clean and comfortable. I did not find the concrete bed at all uncomfortable due to a very good firm mattress (I do not like soft beds). Breakfast in the morning consisted of fresh fruit, tea or coffee and fresh fruit juice with a choice of pancakes or eggs. The hotel also serves lunch and dinner which, although not cheap by SE Asia standards, was excellent.
Although the hotel is located down a little alley, this wasn't a problem as it helped with quietness and once I had my bearings the alley was easy to find (look for the Alley Cat Cafe sign above the Cambodian People's Party on Street 19 as the indicator that you are nearby).
Very good, terribly polite staff and the manager is absolutely delightful. Although there is no receptionist between 10pm and 6am, there is a security guard on site.
Another bonus is that this hotel does not accept 'sex travellers' which is reassuring for a single female traveller.
Not only would I recommend this hotel but if I was returning to Phnom Penh, this would be the hotel I would stay at again.
