We are very happy to have stayed at Raffles Le Royal and would happily recommend the hotel - especially to those who enjoy colonial architecture and hotels with a history. (A really good book which in part takes place at the hotel is River of Time by Jon Swain.) Service, breakfast and pool are absolutely top notch. Having said that, I did not find the internet site for Le Royal very good. Lack of pictures of rooms; lack of information regarding if rooms are in original building or not and difficult to see total cost (with taxes and surcharges) and if breakfast included or not. Other areas of improvement: Hotel took something like 20 h to answer an e-mail and they did not notice wife's birthday.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- A history of hospitality. The luxury of time. The secret charm of Cambodia. One of Asia's essential destination hotels, Raffles Phnom Penh has been the iconic resting place for the well travelled since 1929. Located in the heart of vibrant Phnom Penh, our hotel has been part of the history of the city and welcomes, as it has always done, a diverse clientele of entrepreneurs, writers, journalists, royalty and intrepid travellers from across the globe. Rooms and suites have been respectfully restored to reflect a distinguished blend of Khmer, Art Deco and French colonial architecture. Dining is an essential part of the Phnom Penh experience. In keeping with history and a sense of place, the elegant Le Royal Restaurant serves modern French cuisine and Royal Khmer cuisine with original recipes graciously gifted to Raffles from the Royal Palace. Almost as famous as the hotel itself, is the Elephant Bar where local residents and visitors alike gather over wine, whisky and cocktails. The Raffles Spa offers relaxation, rejuvenation and fitness through a considered mix of local and classic treatments, gym and spa pool. Complete your visit to Cambodia with a stay at our sister hotel Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor, a great hotel of the legendary Grand Tour of Indochina and virtually at the doorstep of the Angkor UNESCO World Heritage site. ... more less
