Stayed there with family last week. The staff made our stay particularly special, and they were the highlight (as were the Cambodian people throughout our trip). Sothea at the front desk was a standout.
ALSO: After departing for Siem Reap I discoved I left my wedding ring in our room of Le Royal. I called from Siem Reap, the staff found my ring, and Sothea had it waiting for me upon our return to Phnom Penh.
The renovation of Le Royal was done tastefully and with great respect for the history of the hotel. I was here in '92, and was happy to see many of the original features of the hotel (the lobby staircase, the tile in the hallways, and the architectural design in general) preserved.
Pool area is beautiful, food excellent, and the atmosphere terrific. We look forward to our return.

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.

The Raffles Spa offers relaxation, rejuvenation and fitness through a considered mix of local and classic treatments, gym and spa pool.
