I booked up another last minute trip to Phnom Penh; tagging along with a couple of friends who'd booked well in advance. They booked a room at the Riverside Suites on Sisowath Quay, the hotel I would normally choose to stay at. Much like my other trips to Phnom Penh, they are always arranged last minute and I panic buy my accommodation. Thankfully for me this time it was a Hit when I chose a room at River 108 Boutique Hotel.
Right outside of the Phnom Penh Night Market at the top of Sisowath Quay this hotel is 10-12 minutes’ walk from the Royal Palace, just a few more minutes to Street 240 and within walking distance of all you need for a short stay in the city.
The hotel is clean and nicely decorated, very similar in style to the Riverside Suites. I got a Suite with a river view. The room was 46m2 and had a great long deep bath which was great to have. The room has a 37" HD TV, a minibar, a balcony, wonderful cushioned seating and a huge comfy double bed. If you close the blinds completely and turn all the lights off you can get a pretty dark room, perfect for a good sleep. If you are a very light sleeper you should go to bed early as the streets in Phnom Penh rise early.
The hotel is affiliated with a restaurant only 2 doors down called Fish, this is your first point of call for room service and your provider of breakfast. They offer a decent range of good tasting Western and Asian inspired Seafood dishes but can be a tad on the pricey side for Phnom Penh.
All in this hotel has great spacious rooms with privacy and comfort. It’s got good and quick room service, it’s immaculately clean and it’s as cheap as chips. It’s a perfect list of attributes that make for a great night’s sleep.
