This hotel is in a spectacular location. Walk to the riverfront, National Museum, Royal Palace, etc. and there are plenty of tuk-tuks outside very eager to take you anywhere else. There is a western-style convenience store a couple doors down with cold water, drinks and snacks. I booked a deluxe room but I don't think that's what I got as there was no private balcony with seating area - my view was of a hallway and the wall of the building directly next door - no natural light coming into the room at all. The room had a mini-refrigerator, which was a super bonus and the aircon was cold and fast to cool the room. The hotel was always clean and the free breakfast was great, though I didn't try any of the western options (you're in Cambodia, why not eat Khmer food). I tried dinner in the restaurant one night and I wasn't impressed. The staff were helpful but never went out of their way - I inquired about laundry and they sent me around the corner to the laundry place instead of taking the wash over themselves. I had flowers delivered but they didn't call me or otherwise let me know that they had arrived. But everyone was always pleasant and remembered what room I was in and always greeted me when I returned at the end of the day. I paid $36 a night and I'm thinking there are probably better options at that price in the area, so I think I'll try someplace different on my next trip.
