This was a truly unforgettable experience, exactly how they describe it and you would expect of the 'Raffles' name.
We where fortunate to be upgraded, and found ourselves next to a room that had a security guy sitting outside! Well the next morning ( after an evening of trivia as to who we thought it could possibly be) we found out when he left it was the PM of Cambodia. I hope he also realised there was some special people also in the next room to him !!!
Joking apart breakfast fabulous , swimming pool a welcome break to the city life. happy hour- well that's always welcome ( but truly was a good deal) Rooms luxurious. Overall a good deal
Can't make a comment about the location as once we stepped into this hotel we never went outside, until we checked out, as we didn't want to miss a minute of it. (we hade travelled 10hrs to get there)
