Salita hotel is located about 15 minutes by Tuk Tuk to the riverside - the area where a lot of activities are centered. So location wise Salita Hotel is a bit off and requires additional transportation costs. One way from Salita to the Sisowath/ Riverside is US $ 3 or 12,000 riel/ Cambodian currency.
Room was one area of Salita that earned good mark. The room was spacious with in room safety deposit , cabled TV, small Fridge, and boiling kettle. Both bedroom and bathroom were clean and do not smell.
Breakfast was adequate with choices of bread/ butter/ jam and oriental dishes such as fried rice, fried noodle, porridge, and some vegetables. The breakfast room on the 10th floor was actually nice with view over the city of Phnom Penh; however, it was rather uncomfortably warm because the aircon was not switched on (opened windows only and floor fans). Not a nice way to start a day.
Cambodia recognizes 2 currencies - US $ and Riel. It was very unfortunate that the hotel reception was not too helpful in this case. They charged 3800 riels per $ while outside it was 4000 riels/ $. Even at that rate, they sometimes did not have riels. Also no tour or even brochures of things to see or to do was available in the hotel. So the travellers were left with their own arrangement. The non uniformed security/ bellboy and the evening reception was too eager to offer "services".
