“clean, comfortable, great location”
Reviewed 29 January 2013

Situated 25m or so in 108 street from Sisowath quay. Very friendly staff who speak good English. The river view rooms do not directly look over the river but from a side view, a river view nevertheless. Very comfortable modern equipped rooms with good aircon, hot shower, tea and coffee facilities, fridge, safe etc. Balcony in the dl balcony rooms is a large size equipped for a good seating area and these rooms also overlook the weekend night market. A colourful market more used by locals than tourists with locals eating from stalls on rush mats. Breakfast is served at the Fish Restaurant just two doors away with a selection of cooked eggs, fruits, toast and coffee or tea. It’s a good introduction to a nice restaurant/bar as well which serves tasty well priced food and 0.5l of beer at $0.50 when we were there. Well positioned with lots of bars and restaurants nearby, an ATM next door to the Fish restaurant and 15 mins walk to Silver Pagoda and Central Market. Overall a very comfortable clean place to stay.

Room Tip: balcony room worth the extra

my wife & I are quite particular about hotel rooms. The room is very spacious, very importantly clean, & tasteful decorated. The best of all it was located right next to the night market which was convenient for some local food stalls & great shopping bargains. In addition, it is located on the waterfront street where there are many clubs & pubs.

This is a great hotel to stay at for location and ease of site seeing around Phnom Penh.
The staff are always available to help with all of your needs.
It is a little on the expensive side but the access for travelers from this site is well worth it.

Have been to Phnom Penh six times and stayed previously at the Naga World (way too noisy, big, impersonal, etc.), Sunway (quiet but worn and not a great location), and The Quay (good location, ok room, but facade really out of place for the setting). This time I tried the River 108 Boutique and enjoyed a delightful experience. It is a small hotel, could be difficult to find if you don't know what you are looking for. It's at the north (?) end of the riverside area and convenient to many restaurants. The riverside is also nice for a morning run. The staff was so friendly with big smiles and always ready to help. Hotel decor is charming. My room was large and comfortable with a nice tub and a big balcony. The night market is across the street, so it was noisy on the weekend, but I thought it added to the experience. It's not your typical hotel stay, but fun and enjoyable and has a lot of charm that is hard to find in other large Asian cities. I ate several times at the small restaurant next door, 18 Rik Reay; the food was spicy and delicious!

This hotel has a small single shopfront entrance, so easily missed if you're not familiar with the area. The street in front of the hotel is cluttered with parked cars, tuk tuks & motorbikes, much like the rest of Phnom Penh. Fortunately the taxi driver knew where the place was, and I had a map & directions as backup.

The hotel staff were on hand as soon as the taxi pulled up outside the hotel, and picked up my suitcase as soon as it came out of the taxi. Checkin was quick & efficient, I handed over the booking coupon from the travel agent, they photocopied my passport, and I went straight up to my room. No lift, this hotel has only three floors. I had booked for a single, but in the end I got a double. This was one of the rooms at the side of the hotel, so no balcony. No problem, I didn't travel to the other side of the planet to sit on a balcony. The airconditioning seemed slow to cool the room at first, but the next evening it performed much better, so possibly the room had been vacant for a day or so. I set the temperature at 25C with the ceiling fan on slow during the day, & switched the fan off at night. This still got a bit chilly at night, even on the lowest setting. There was a large flat screen TV, I found Channel V for music (number 7 on the remote). The room had good lighting, I counted 16 lamps in the room including the bathroom. But there were four switches at the bedside with different mood configurations, so possibly not all meant to be switched on at once. The bedside lamps were dimmable. Free drinking water in the room topped up daily, plus tea & coffee making stuff, and a minibar. The bathroom had good hot water, bathroom goodies including toothbrushes, soap, & shower cap. A comfortable kingsize bed, clean, with a medium density mattress, on a solid unsprung base. Hotel is guest-friendly. The hotel looks like it was built a long time ago, bathroom fittings are badly fitted or broken, the composite flooring is cracked in several places. A leaking water pipe behind the bathroom mirror had rotted the bottom edge of the mirror frame, and leaves a small pool of water around the sink. However, the room as a whole was clean, and the staff were friendly.

Breakfast was at the Fish restaurant a couple of doors down the street towards the waterfront, 7-10am, a choice of cooked or continental. I thought the amount served was adequate for breakfast.

I had a late flight, but had to check out of my room as it had been booked for that night. I managed to get another room for a shower that evening, this turned out to be the only single room in the place. This room was smaller than my double, with a smaller double bed. No ceiling fan. A good sized walled balcony, with balcony furniture, wide enough for a bit of discrete sunbathing. I noticed small monkey pawprints up the wall alongside the balcony, cute, but LOCK the balcony doors when you leave the room if you don't want these small creatures to get into your room and trash the place!!!

Taxi from the airport cost $9 fixed price, and took about 20 minutes late at night. Return taxi ride to airport took about 30 minutes, late evening, I paid $9 again.

River 108 is one of the hotels that I would stay in without a doubt if I went to Cambodia.

The staff really goes the extra mile to help and assist you. Being a boutique hotel with not many rooms, the staff are very attentive and know your name. Even the cleaners are friendly.

The bed is big, very comfortable. Rain shower with a big tub. Big balcony for lounging (although it can be a bit noise during weekends if there's an event near the market). Nice hearty breakfast. Great location at the Riverside, without being at the center of all the restaurants and entertainment spots for it to be noisy.

Great hotel, staff friendly and helpful
Rooms clean, not actually on the river road itself but this is fine fairly quiet but I do not mind a bit of noise from the street after all Cambodia can be a bit noisy at night
Great work by all the staff and management
