“Good location, good service”
Reviewed 26 February 2013

Hotel is located close to all major sights in the city center. The single room was spacy, with a/c and fan and private bathroom (20 USD). Unfortunately no window (only something what pretended to be window:-)). The room was with breakfast - breakfast was nothing special in comparison to other PP hotel. Free laundry each day - it could be handy if you spend more nights. Wi-fi in the room was working all the time.

I traveled to Phnom Penh as part of a school group and, for the first stop during our first time in Cambodia, I found our time at the Golden Gate Hotel particularly enjoyable. The facilities are clean and accessible; and my friend and I shared a spacious room on the first floor of the new wing, with a great little balcony overlooking the bustling street. The Golden Gate offers free WiFi, breakfast, and a laundry service with your washing returned the same day.

I found every member of staff to be simply wonderful. On several nights, a group of friends and I stayed out quite late playing sey -- a Cambodian game rather like hacky sack -- with some of the hotel's staff and tuk-tuk drivers from across the road. They were extremely patient with our terrible skills! I also had complete faith in my floor's cleaning lady, who was very sweet.

The Golden Gate is in a great location on a busy little street full of cafes, bars, spas, etc., and there are of course many tuk-tuks lingering around to get you where you need to go. I would absolutely recommend this hotel. The people here particularly made my first few days in Cambodia well worth remembering.

Not a bad location for the bars and restaurants but far too noisy for me. It is located not far from the Independence Monument. Quite a distance from the Riverside area, can be walked, but a Tuk Tuk is a better bet. Save your feet for something else. I had a dingy ground floor room next to the front entrance, in the Annex portion of the hotel. Depressing little en-suite shower room. Never opened the bedroom curtain or window it just wasn't practical in that room. Had a big cockroach running up the wall one night, which one of the very nice staff caught and removed. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was OK. Free laundry very handy. Avoid a ground floor basic room at all cost. I am sure there are better rooms, their web site has pictures which suggests that is the case.

Room Tip: Make sure you dont get a ground floor room.

The accommodation in the cheaper places in Phnom Penh is basic in any case, we stayed one night in a suite for USD45.00 and it was good but the next few nights we were in a standard room and they were pretty bad but were only USD25.00 per night.
The breakfast included in was really good, mainly western food but also some Khmer stuff like noodles etc.
If you do stay here make sure you stay in the main part of the hotel not in the building across the road. In the main part of the hotel the rooms are of a much better standard.
The location is good and is close to the palace and other sites, the tuk-tuk drivers should only charge you USD2.00 to take you pretty much anywhere within the city.

Room Tip: Make sure you stay in the main part of the hotel not in the building across the road. In the main pa...

Clean room with balcony. No elevator. The stairs to top floor was heavy to walk for old people (like me). Bathroom good.Nice people working in the reception and helpful to carry luggage. Breakfast in diningroom opposit on the other side of the street. Good food.

Good location and reasonable price, and they do your laundry daily - so no excuse for inside out pants! Go for a room in the annex, they are bigger and with a kitchen, plus staff are less grumpy than in the main building.

Room Tip: Stay in the Annex.

Good value and handy location in a small street with good bars and restaurants. Make sure you have a room with a window. Bathroom is average by western standards but clean and good for Cambodia. Breakfast is good.
