“Average rooms, great service”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

I changed rooms 3 times (my own fault), 1 room was great but the other 2 werent very good. The beds were very uncomfortable and the rooms had poor lighting and no view.
Pricing was quite expensive for SE Asia, that being said, the meals were excellent.
My favourite part was the service, in particular Chandy. He was really helpful, had great English and made my stay really enjoyable.

Stayed November 2013, travelled solo

This place was pretty expensive as far as SeA, It looks great in all the photos but the rooms aren't actually that nice. Initially we were put in a room with a window right on to the bar/pool table area. We asked to be moved because we knew it would be really noisey. The staff were nice and moved us the next day when a different room became available. Our second room was much quieter, but smelled of cigarettes and was pretty bland. The common areas are really nice though. One annoying thing is that the hotel lets tuk tuk drivers loiter outside the doors so you can't walk in or out the building without being harassed by half a dozen drivers. Not very relaxing.

Room Tip: Make sure you find out where your room is. Many have windows are right on the bar area on the second...

I stayed here nov 2013 as part of a group of ladies on the hunt for nightlife, shopping and sightseeing.
Overall we had a great experience here; the beds/rooms were clean and comfy, staff were friendly and attentive and the hotel in general was aesthetically pleasing.
Happy hour provided an extensive choice of buy one get one free cocktails ($3) and the food was really tasty whether it be a traditional Khmer curry or a Greek salad. Relaxing in the outdoor jacuzzi with cocktail service was easily the best way to cool off after a full day of shopping near the Russian market or taking a trip to the killing fields. Tuk Tuks were a-plenty outside the hotel making both very easily accessible.
The only criticism I have about our stay here is that when we asked about staying an extra night for the same price we were told we needed to move to another cheaper room (no problem), so we booked it at reception. However after packing up an checking out of our original room we were told no other booking had been made and the only option was to return to our room and pay more: they would not rectify their mistake and give us a discount. I put this down to miscommunication but really we should have received a discount for the cheaper room not being booked.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to holiday makers with a bit of disposable cash and traveling workers for a pay day treat.

We all had a terrible nights sleep at this hotel. My room was near the kitchen/bar so noisy plus the 'window' opens out to the hallway opposite the kitchen and the curtain wasn't thick enough to darken the room. Another friend had a room near the laundry - machines going all night and staff talking, and the other couldn't lock the shutters that opened directly outside so had a bad nights sleep worrying about that. Staff were fine and the rooms were small but cheap and clean. 1 of the showers flooded. We didn't eat there and didn't see anyone else eating there but there are other options close by. The pool on the roof is a small 'have a dip' kind of pool, more the size of a spa pool, which we didn't use but if you simply wanted to cool off then it would be good to have it. We asked for wake up calls, 2 our of 3 of us got them. Internet went off in the night and didn't come back on. For one night like we wanted, it was OK, but it did leave us pretty tired for the next day.

Have stayed at Number 9 twice in the last 10 days. They were fantastic the first time and even more so when we returned. Good food, lovely staff, location fine. SOFT beds only ones I've found in Cambodia. Will stay here every time I'm in Phnom Penh.

Was recommended by a friend in Cambodia to book this hotel. Stayed 2 nights. Wifi was ok not too bad.

Bed was also ok. They have a bar beside the jacuzzi pool. Was quite nice and unique.

Only setback was it was a bit far away from the riverside and toward Naga world is also very far by walk. But for a price of $15US. This is definitely worth to pay for.
There is also a shabu shabu restaurant beside that served good steamboat. Worth trying it!

Hotel is very good value for money, and the staff are very helpful and pleasant. I was slightly dubious that no picture was shown of the bathroom prior to booking and I can see why. Bathroom was very dated, no door on the shower, shower was broken and toilet was not very good (even wihout putting toilet paper down). We would also need to ask for fresh towels and our sheets to be changed.

Other than the cons however, a nice hotel overall.
