Orussey Hotel

Reviewed 22 November 2011

We were only passing through Phnom Penh and stayed at this hotel. The tuk tuk took us up the ramp to the hotel entrance - but later we had to walk up and down and its a bit of a drag. The hotel was clean and modern and we had a very large room with a window and they supplied a good breakfast in the morning. Large monsoon shower was fab. In fact we used the same hotel again when we came back to Phnom Penh five days later. The bustling market below was not a problem. We didnt hear it at all at night and it was really fun to eat there and enjoy the smells and sights of late night Phnom Penh.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window.

It wasn't awful but it wasn't great. Pictures looked much better than it was in real life - dated, not well maintained and not super clean either, I just didn't feel comfortable.
Tuk tuk driver also made me pay extra to drive me up the multi-level carpark ramp. First he took me to the wrong hotel and then when he "realised" which one I meant asked for more money for the distance and more again for the ramp.
Back to the hotel: location was not great, even without the ramp. I arrived at night and went to find something to eat. Only time I have felt really unsafe in Cambodia and Vietnam and I often wander around at night by myself. Poorly lit, smelly, rubbish everywhere, and constantly stepping over it along the footpath. The whole place felt seedy.
Wouldn't recommend it for a long stay, fine if you can get the rooms really cheap I guess.

Stayed with a friend for 2nights. When we arrived we were told that they couldn't find our reservation. The manager was called and he explained that because it's only a 3 star hotel their Internet system isn't great so they don't always get reservations!-strange excuse we thought! Then it took them ages to book us in and when they did they tried to get us to sign to pay for 3nights not 2. Our room was nice but had no window and the shower was hot for less than a minute and then went cold-when we complained to reception about this they said it was normal?! The hotel is located above a market and the only way to street level is to walk round the spiral vehicle entrance-not very safe or practical! When we checked out after 2nights they tried again to get us to pay for 3nights even though it was the same staff that checked us in so surely they could work out we were only there 2nights?!! Basically we felt we paid more than this hotel deserved-wouldn't recommend.

Our tuk tuk driver could not find this hotel after we told him the name of it, tip- write the name of the hotel on a piece of paper and give it to the driver because there is another market with a similar sounding name. Once we did find it above the o,russey market, we were a little overwhelmed by the bustling none tourist oriented market outside. The hotel cannot be accessed by tuk tuk so you have to get dropped off at the car parking lot and than walk through the car park to the 5th floor. The hotel is mostly for wholesale buyers to stay in, so when we arrived they asked us what company we were with. The double room we stayed in for $19 usd did not have a window, the bed was comfortable and felt more like chain hotels in the U.S. The shower still had lots of hair from the last guest on the floor, but other than that the room was clean. The gym is awesome, the best we have seen in 4 months of traveling around SE Asia.

Room Tip: The standard double bed does not have a window

We chose this hotel for stopover mainly due to the location for catching bus to Ho Chi Minh.
It is very very hard to find the hotel. Almost shocked and disappointed when we first saw the the chaotic environment outside the hotel. However, the facilities inside are much better than expected. Very peaceful stay there compared with the chaotic city.
