The hotel is centrally located but at the same time a real oasis of calm and relaxation in busy Phnom Penh. Thw swimming pool is absolutely great and, unlike many of the other chic boutique hotels in PP, kids are allowed (and welcome). The restaurant is very good but the menu is rather small (but the manager will help you order in if you exhaust the menu). The manager, Stephane, was really welcoming and gave us some really good advice on what to do and where to go, plus many insights on life in PP and Cambodia in general. The rest of the staff was really nice as well and made us feel welcome. The triple rooms are larger but do not have a view so if you can choose the deluxe double for a pool side view. They also organized a taxi for Siem Reap at a very reasonable price ($55 I think). The atmosphere is definitively European and boutique, but at the same time it's not pretentious, we really enjoyed our stay.
