After Seam Reap (Victoria) - see review - we flew to Phnom Penh and stayed two nights at Raffles Le Royal. We thought two nights was about right for a manic city like PP, but the Royal Palace, National Museum and markets are amazing.
We stayed in a Landmark room, which was lovely, albeit on the smallish side, but adequate for a short stay (you will only be in the room to sleep). The room overlooked the swimming pool and gardens. The usual robes, slippers, shampoo, conditioner, gel, etc., was supplied and fruit daily. The extensive buffet breakfast was served mainly inside with a corridor terrace on the outside of the restaurant. The evening buffet was fantastic, as we the cocktails! Very helpful, happy, staff. Lovely hotel for a short stay in PP, great food and service. Lovely swimming pool to cool off in after the heat of the city.
