This is a very well thought out establishment in a good location in Phnom Pen. The accomodation is backed up with a very good pool. The pool has 5 x Bure's along the side where you can spend the day if you so desire. A nice poolside restaurant with wandering staff to keep your drink filled.
The rooms are roomy and adequate,hot water always with a very good concrete wardrobe that works well.
We stayed in the Balcony room which was a nice addition and situated above the pool.
1.Pool is open to visitors for a charge although this caused very little angst as it is well policed.
2.The street noise is definitely there but not too bad.
3.The rooms can be noisy especially from the pool later at night.
The area behind the Bure's is smelly and I suspect that this is from the cats that are in plentiful supply.
All in all though I give it high marks and the hosts are tireless in maintaining the standard
