It is a nice hotel in a good location on Street 178, which is just North of the National Museum and has a lot going on in the area. Not so nice was the constant presence of garbage and garbage smell in the street, especially at night (but this was the case all around Phnom Penh, actually!). Frangipani Fine Arts is easy to miss as one accesses it through a tiny alley entrance. There is another Frangipani hotel in the same street, closer to the river and a bit more upmarket.
Staff are very nice, although not very well informed, in case you need suggestions. Rooms are very big: we slept in two twin rooms with extra beds in both of them, and there was plenty of space to walk around. There is no door separating bedroom and bathroom, just a curtain, although the size and layout of the room meant it was not a big deal. Wifi worked fine. Breakfast was a bit poor, in the little central court that has a nice, family feeling. There is no lift. To sum up, the hotel was what we expected, so a good experience for our family of 6 (my mom, wife, 3 boys 10-8-8 and myself).
