“Perfect location, good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 June 2012

Stayed a night there during a vacation. Compared to similar hotel class in Ho Chi Minh city, this hotel costs 30% less. However the location is perfect, with walking distance to the palace, river, and city center.
Wifi was available from the room. A very plus side. When we asked to have an early breakfast, the staffs were preparing some food quicker for us. Good service for a 3 stars hotel.

At Silver River Hotel we were very impressed. On arrival we were provided with all the info we needed and given a welcome drink. The room was large with a big window (however it only opened a fraction) The bed was large as well at the TV. It was in a central location and a short walk to the riverfront restaurants and walking distance to the markets. Breakfast was a buffet that was changed daily. Wifi worked well in the room.

No complaints about this hotel.

We arrived during what appeared to be a monsoon which we were not prepared for, so literally dripped across the hotel foyer. The staff offered us a lovely welcome drink and were very kind and accommodating - getting us straight up to our room to shower and recover.

Once dry and changed, they arranged our onward bus journey for us, along with the hotel pickup.

The room was pleasant, with all amenities - and comfortable. The one thing we felt could have been more was that there was only one pillow per bed - with one spare in the cupboard. Another each would have been great.

However, the hotel is situated in a prime location, a short walk from the Royal Palace and Silver Pagoda, and near lots of good bars, cafes and restaurants. It is also close to the river front. We walked from the boat dock further up the city and it only took around 15 minutes (even in the monsoon!).

Breakfast was good; a buffet with a range of eastern and western foods, including cereals, eggs, noodle dishes and breads. Coffee was great.

Would stay again, wish we'd spent another night or two here.

Room Tip: We had a room out the back which overlooked what seemed to be a dump/rubbish tip - so whilst quiet w...

Silver RIver is a nice place to stay, in a great location - but beware booking online, they will slug you an extra $5 a night.

Silver River is a proper hotel compared to most of the guesthouses in the area. The hotel and rooms are looking a bit dated, but the rooms are big and have everything you could need.

Breakfast buffet is great (and included in your room price), and its in the heart of Phnom Penh, close to heaps of restaurants, bars and sights (museum, palace and not far to riverfront).

We ate dinner here on the night we arrived and were surprised at how tasty the food was.

There was however a sour note - and it drove us to change hotels. We had booked and paid for a room online though Agoda (a twin room), and yet when we arrived they said that the room was only booked for one person, so we had to pay an extra $5 a night. This pushed it out of our budget, and we were pretty angry with this hidden fee. There is nowhere on the Agoda website that gave us the option to book for two people - and in 4 months of travel and booking with Agoda we had never come across this before. Booking a twin or double means they expect two people to arrive usually.

When i questioned the charge, a team of 4 staff behind reception started giving me a well-rehearsed spiel about how our booking was only for one, and if we read the Agoda fine print we will see this. It seemed like this must happen all the time and the staff knew how to shut it down.

Out of interest - i went back through the Agoda booking process and couldn't see anywhere to indicate how many people would be staying in the twin or double room. Its not much money, but in Cambodia it is - so its a bit of a scam really. Also the way the staff death with our question on it was overly forceful.

Room Tip: If booking online beware they will charge $5 each night for a 2nd person (but you won't know til...

Ideally placed a block from the river, the Royal Palace and the National Museum. A manageable walk to the Central Markets as well. Room had a nice view of the brick wall 2 metres away, but it is not a place for the views. Rooms were clean and well serviced, staff were friendly, but minor communication problems at times, but no big deal. Breakfast a bit on the ordinary side, but the hotel is set amidst a plethora of good cheap eating establishments. Price is reasonable. Recommended!

We stayed one day at the end of a one-week trip around Cambodia. It is a business hotel, similar to a Courtyard Marriot (for Phnom Penh). We were tourists, but we fit right in. It's located a couple of blocks from the river. Lots of restaurants and stores in the area. Very well kept building. Big, clean and comfortable rooms. Great AC and shower. The rooms have a lot of quality details. The wi-fi is very good.

Very friendly and helpful staff.

The breakfast buffet (included) is excellent. Don't skip it.

I'll stay here in my next visit to Phnom Penh.
