“Decent, safe, clean”
Reviewed 12 March 2013

Decent, quiet enough hotel in PP. Close enough to backpackers and travel ghetto via free hotel-paid-for tuk-tuk. Good enough included-breakfast and very good interent/wifi connection. Front office staff was pretty bad and very slow. Nevertheless the rooms were clean, spacious. River view was good, but note that I was woken by roosters very early in the morning in the river veiw room. I did not stay on the other side which faces a noisy street.

Room Tip: River view room to avoid traffic in front of hotel?

A good hotel with a good price. Rooms are very nice and the view on the river is also beautiful.
It also has a useful business centre which can be sued for free.
Breakfast is ok, but not great for a 4 star hotel.
The are in which the hotel is located is quite bad, but it will cost just a couple of dollars to take a tuk tuk and go to the royal Palace or the National Museum.

Although slightly out of town this is a fantastic place to stay and the short tuk-tuk journey to town adds to the fun. The staff are very helpful and offer good advice if required. The rooms are very spacious and well equipped. The breakfast service is excellent and you can end a tiring day of sight seeing with a workout in the well equipped gym or just laze in the jacuzzi after the steam room or sauna. We would certainly stay here again.

Loved this hotel, use it as a base. Spend the first 2 nights here before poping over to siem reap and the last night here before flying back.

Room was spacious, comfortable, and well-maintained facing the river.They have excellent facilities such as gym and spa less the swimming pool. Staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Location is just 5 mins on a tuk tuk to the main center

Really liked this hotel, the room was comfortable and clean with a great view over the river (would recommend you request this) the facilities were excellent and the staff more than helpful and do their best to make you feel special. Its about 10-15min walk from the main center but don't let that put you off as they offer a complementary tuk tuk.
Great value for money!

Best deal in town, huge rooms, reasonably well appointed. A proper 4 star room in any big city it would.
Staff is extremely helpful and friendly.
Tuk Tuk to town is free going there, breakfast is so so, but overall I would make it my pick for PP if you like a proper sized hotel room where things actually work

Room Tip: anything facing the river
