“Very nice and friendly small hotel in the middle of the actions”
Reviewed 24 September 2009

Nice room (the one with window and balcony) but steep stairs to get to them. Staff speaks reasonably good English. Good prices (in low season).

Booked studio apartments (#8 and #4) at Nordic House (www.nordic-cambodia.com) in mid-January for $30 a night (rooms are $20). The studio # 8 was very large, had a balcony (with 2 chairs) but had a musty/sewer smell with paint peeling on the wall. Apartment #4 was the same size but not musty. The fridge turns off in #8 when the key card is removed, so you know what you must do. Housekeeping is non-existent after check in. Wifi doesn’t work on the top floor in apartment #8 but does in apartment #4 as well as in the restaurant on the main floor. They advertise Ethernet for the security conscious, well it doesn’t work either. There is some weird online agreement that you will not up/download more the x MB per day otherwise you will be charged for Internet use. The owner said that policy was put in place to prevent people from downloading movies, etc. and assured me that I would not be charged for any internet use, and in fact I wasn’t. The regular rooms vary in size with some being quite small and all being dark.

In addition to the fridge, there is a single burner hotplate, a few pots, dishes, and glasses, kitchen sink, bar with stools, a small table with 2 chairs, TV, double bed with no top sheet (if you request one you get a second fitted sheet), a mattress that needs replacing, dim lighting, and AC. The bathroom is large and has a semi-enclosed shower, with decent hot water, including in the bathroom sink. There is ample cupboard space and they provide free clothes washing. Before you get too excited about the latter, use at your own risk as mine came back missing an item - if your laundry comes back with a pair of black silk underwear, they’re mine. Breakfast is not included. The restaurant serves a few Scandinavian dishes in addition to the standard European/N. American and Asian dishes.

Located on Street 136, it is within walking distance of the Royal Palace and is half a block from the river. While not as noisy as on the waterfront, earplugs are recommended if you want to get to sleep before 2am as this end of Street 136 has numerous girlie bars with loud music and the street vendors on the corner keep the noise going after the bars close.
