The Golden House international Hotel is spotlessly clean, very comfortable and very well-managed. The owners maintain Western standards, and take a personal, active interest in ensuring that your stay is comfortable and enjoyable.
My husband and I stayed there in February/March 2011. It is a gorgeous boutique hotel half a block from the riverside.
The rooms are amazingly clean and furnished in a modern style with really comfortable beds! There was a large flat screen TV (international cable channels CNN, BBC, HBO and a host of other movie channels etc.) The A/C is of fantastic quality ie new and nice and quiet. Free & very fast wifi and mini-fridge (bottled water is provided everyday) a digital safe to lock up your valuables and a modern, exceedingly clean bathroom. In the neighborhood there are quite a lot of bars and restaurants the rooms, however, are quiet and we weren’t kept awake or disturbed atall.
The staff, including the owner and his wife, are really friendly and provide a great personal service: Never rude, never too busy to help and provide information.
This hotel is ideally located in my opinion. It is a half block from the riverside.
The hotel café has great coffee and the breakfast variety is good and quality of food high. There is also a great flat screen apple mac for guests to use down in the café area.The full menu (room service too) has some real tasty, good quaility food but a (very) short walk away there are many quality places to eat.
Within walking distance are the National museum, the silver pagoda and Royal Palace and a very short tuk tuk ride will get you to Central Market and Wat Phnom.
Safety/Security is excellent. There is a safe in each room, and the doors have a double locking system. There is a security guard who is on duty every evening outside and night staff on duty every night inside. Incase you have your own (as we had) or rented vehicle the ground floor of the entire building is a secure parking area.
The hotel has a bookcase in the lobby filled with travel books on Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam, as well as local maps, maps of Siem Reap and Sihounoukville and guides to local attractions.
The owner and his staff are VERY knowledgable about Phnom Penh and Cambodia as a whole. Be sure to ask if you have a question on destinations and obtaining visas for neighbouring countries etc.
Would I stay there again? Definitely. I cannot recommend it highly enough. We have been travelling for many many years and I have to say this is probably one of the best hotels we have stayed in in terms of facilities and value for money.
