I have just left having stayed here for nearly two weeks.
So first impressions (well having read the reviews on here, I knew a little of what to expect) it was quite grand to pull up to but then we went inside.
Check in - the longest check in process I have had (I travel for two weeks to Asia every month) it took 3 staff to work out what paperwork I needed to fill in, they were very friendly but English was very lacking. No one knew the systems or process.
Went to my room, well it has not had a lick of paint for 10-15 years. it was clean and had a fantastic view of the engineering plant!!!! do not get a river view room!!! Also at night, my room was very close to being above the disco so bang bang bang, not good if you wanted to sleep for a work day.
So I am here for work, so getting online is very important for me. Now this was the hardest thing to do. in my room where I prefer to work as it is quiet. The only place to get a reliable signal was on the bed, but you had to long in every time and only one device at a time - to change devises you had to find a web site to log out then long in another device. the signal dropped all the time and was not reliable. So I went to try in the bar, ok a different log in, but could use more that one device, having said that, if there were more than two people in the bar, it was so slow as to be no good.
While talking of the bar - the service was good, very friendly staff but the prices!!! WOW compared with every other restaurant I have been to in Phnom Penh this was double the price and then some!!!
So all in all - not what I expected and not left me wanting to come back. Sorry
