This small hotel, which is family-run, is strategically located within Phnom Penh and is a walking distance to the riverfront, central market, and other business establishments. However, it is also situated within the notorious red light bar area of the city. Bars are literally at your door steps!
Checking into the hotel was relatively easy, with the checking-in procedures completed within 5 minutes. The rate quoted by the hotel is not inclusive of any breakfast. However, meals could be ordered from a wide range of choices offered by the hotel. Nevertheless, better meal choices could be found at the numerous restaurants situated along the river front.
I was given a room on the third floor of the five storey building. The first impression that greeted me upon entering the room was that the room is much smaller than the usual standard double room that you will find in most hotels in Phnom Penh of similar standard. However, the bed was clean and comfortable. A standard size wardrobe, writing table, electronic safe, flat screen TV, and mini fridge is provided for in the room.
The bathroom is large and comes with hot water. However, the downside of the bathroom is that it is without any shower screen / curtains. The whole floor of the bathroom will be wet every time one takes a shower. The wifi speed at the hotel is horribly slow. The chair at the writing table is very shaky and gives you the feeling that you may be falling off the chair at any time. The vase on the writing table is an empty bottle of a local beer! Although there is a Mac computer at the hotel lobby, the air-conditioning at the hotel lobby is switched off all the time.
Overall, the service level at the hotel is minimal at most.
