We stayed 4 nights in this guesthouse and we had a really good time there. Beside the fact that the cheapest room has no window it's a nice one with good beds, airco and a good shower.
The riverside with nice restaurants and bars is around the corner.
The Blue Pumpkin has good breakfast as the guesthouse does't serve this.
Mika, the Finnish owner, is a really really nice guy. He gave us tips about Phnom Penh and tells about Cambodia. He and his girlfriend made Phnom Penh unforgetable for us!
