This place is beautiful and only a few months old. Lovely big rooms with cool bathrooms. The pool area is great, with fantastic little pavilions you can curl up and read a book. The owners are knowledgable about the local area and make you feel very welcome. Prices are really good value. Good restaurant and free wifi.
Only downsides are that there is building work going on next door that ruins the tranquility - however, this seems to be the case across Phnom Penh! Also, it was hard getting tuk tuk drivers to find the place, partly because its new but also I think because there is much confusion that the hotel has the same name as the street!
