This was our first exposure to a Raffles hotel and we were not disappointed. This elegant hotel is a landmark in Phnom Penh. Gorgeous rooms, a friendly staff, and excellent food make this a must stay in a chaotic city. Although we had a guide while we were here, we also had our own "personal” tuk-tuk driver who always seemed to be waiting for us outside the hotel. We used him one day to go to a restaurant and then he always seemed to be looking and waiting for us. Although his prices were a bit inflated because we were staying here, he certainly showed us some interesting things we did not see with our regular guide. Be sure to stop in the shop in the lobby, they had some of the most beautiful things we saw in Cambodia. We bought lots but wish we had bought more.
- 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
