This new hotel has just 8 rooms and while it doesn't call itself a boutique, it is! The location is brilliant and rooms equally so. It is located on one of the prettiest and hottest spots on Phnom Penh's River front. Walk out the door to find steps a way a plethora of new, chic bar/restaurants, cafes as well as Phnom Penh's nostalgic older, open air standbys.
A deluxe room, maintains preserved french tiles which give it added charm. Soft pale grays, whites, high ceiings, fans, huge bathrooms with state-of-the art showers, huge soft white towels, the best beds and high quality linens, robes (his and hers), slippers, safes, coffee/tea in the room, a perfect size dressing/wardrobe/desk area invisibly dividing the living/sleeping area, giving the whole room an open, airy, light peaceful feel... an inspired renovation that has captured the French colonial ambiance Phnom Penh is so famous for.
This hotel is like living at home. The room has a comfy sofa where guests can put their feet up at the end of a hot long day. This single addition of added comfort creates an atmosphere of a home, not just a place to sleep with a bed and one chair. Rather a real home.
NO elevator, no pool. But the hotel offers free tuk tuk service to a nearby sister hotel where guests can use their pool. Nothing is lost. Breakfast can be taken in the room (on the patio overlooking Phnom Penh's upgraded and vastly improved riverfront walk) or next door. Lovely breakfast and lovely service.
This is the kind of hotel where you simply want to stay, not for one night, but for days. The outdoor patio has achieved an indoor/outdoor effect, so whether inside or out, guests feel as if they are "on the river". Lie in bed and open the drapes to watch early morning fishermen ply their long tail skiffs along the Mekong and Tongle sap. Another world, another time. THe best Phnom Penh has to offer.
This is a secret hard to give away. Prices absolutely the best possible value for money and this small boutique hotel competes with the city's 5 stars.
The lobby is small and a suitable gateway to the rooms. There is a computer for public use and free wifi. Staff are helpful, welcoming and always prepared to help.
