This is a really good place if you want to stay in Phnom Penh; very much accessible to all the attractions like the Silver Pagoda, Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda & Sisowath Quay. It is not located near the main thoroughfare, you still need to walk in a dodgy alley but it's not really a problem. I personally love the garden, it's clean & well-maintained, and sure a lovely place to have breakfast. I so love it! The place is so clean & I love the antique staircase. We stayed in the 3rd storey wherein you need to climb a steep steel staircase. They have CCTV cameras on all storey so you can rest assure of the order & safety in the guesthouse. We stayed at room 10, the bed is comfy, has desk & table, fridge, TV, wardrobe & safety deposit box. The bathroom is okay & complete toiletries are provided. Every storey has its own verandah & common area which is very nice--it will make you feel comfortable unlike other hotel wherein you can only see long corridors.
On our first day of stay, breakfast wasn't completely served because we need to leave early for Siem Reap. On the next day, we finally had a complete breakfast--it was awesome & the coffee is good! :) The 2 cleaning ladies were always smiling & the boy who opens the gate is nice though he can't really speak english well. The lady receptionist speaks good english, she is friendly but she needs to be warm to her guest. When we asked if we can have breakfast early because we need to leave really early for Ho Chi Minh, she responded in a not so nice way. It seems like it's our fault that we're leaving early that's why we can't have our breakfast. She need not to say that or better she could have said it in a nicer way. Later she offered to cook our breakfast in advanced & just get it before we leave in the morning. It was a good gesture though, but her initial response left a bad impression to me. Christian, the manager is nice.
Overall, I will still recommend this guesthouse!
