Bougainvillier Hotel
Ranked #74 of 274 Hotels in Phnom Penh
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We like the staff, the room was great with a wonderful view of the River, but we did not know they were under a major renovation. The internet did not work and there was work in lobby. No elevator so beware if you need one. We were on 4th floor and you didm't want to forget anything in room when you left for breakfast.

Dear Mc Allen,
Thank you so much for taking the time to send us your review and to like our hotel. Just a small information, The building we are renovating is not the one we put our guests. It is 20 meters away from the one you were sleeping. We will finish the noise in four more days. Sorry for that and hope to see you during your next trip to Cambodia. our rooms and bathrooms will even be nicer.
Kind Regards
Bernard

When I read the previous reviews about the lack of elevator, I decided to brave it. The Cambodian heat and humidity showed me the error of my ways. The third floor is actually the fourth floor by american standards and I swear the floors are 1 1/2 times as big. No worries, though, they switched me to a room on the first (second) floor the next day.

Pros: The room is huge! The bedroom alone is the size of the living quarters in Afghanistan and I have to share that with another guy. The living room is correspondingly large. The breakfast buffet was large and had a great variety, both western, european and oriental. The dar wood panelling is great as well as the tile floors. The location s great with lots of restaurants, night life and ATM's within two blocks.

Cons: I have heard rumors of a pool within walking distance, but I didn't bother. The room was dirty above eye level (I'm 6'6" and I notice). The tub is an accident waiting to happen and the shower head only came up to my belly button. They really need to modernize there. There was a bit of construction noise since they are moving into the building next door, but it didn't really bother me. Pet peeve--- the room was very hot when I first came in and it takes a couple of hours to cool down. The fans helped a lot, though. There were no chairs on the balcony which kind of defeats the purpose. The TV's were old and small and new flat screens would make a big difference. Brining my HDMI computer cable was a waste. Finally, the reception on the TV reminds my of my youth with the rabbit ears and tin foil.


For those looking for the wild side, street 136 is a coupe of blocks down and you can meet the girl of your dreams, or just du jour.

Room Tip: Stay on the first floor!!!

Stayed for 4 nights in the Superior Suite with balcony, room is huge with large bathroom, separate kitchen, and a lounge area, the place is so big it has 2 aircon units and it was so hot I had both running at all times.
Balcony was excellent for passing the time watching the locals but from early on it gets way to hot to sit out there for long.
Only down side is the lift is not up and running, I understand the installer did a runner with the money but 3 floors is a killer especially if you have a skin full at 3 in the morning, for this reason I gave it a rating of 4, with a lift it would have been a 5.

Never got up in time to eat the breakfast but plenty of restaurants in the area.

Plan on returning to Phnom Penh at Christmas time and I will be staying here again and hopefully the lift will be up and running by then.

Room Tip: If you don't like to overdo things in the heat go for a lower floor

Dear Valued Guest.
Thank you so much to appreciate our hotel and services and to take your time to send us your review. Mai and June are the hottest months in Cambodia. That s why people living here are so happy when the rain comes and cools down the air. If you visit us next time and wake up late our restaurant and kitchen staff will always prepare you something for free even our buffet already close. They know how to manage this and are happy if they can serve you. I would be happy if I could meet you next time.
Kind Ragards,
Bernard

Located in the city center, five minutes walk from the Royal Palace. Hotel is divided into two blocks. To get to the reception, you need to go out. Gorgeous room SIUTE overlooking the waterfront is richly decorated in Asian style. No hair dryer and toothbrushes. No lift, which may not be very convenient for the elderly and weary travelers in the heat. The staff is very friendly. Breakfast is good, the entrance to the restaurant is decorated in a carved gate of sandalwood.

Dear Karl,
Thank you so much for your review and the time you spend for writing it. All our rooms have a hair dryer and shaving plug on the wall int the bathroom near the lavabo. We supply amenities except those made of plastic. So no tooth brush and razor. Our reception sells a toothbrush and tooth paste kit { at our purchase price) so you can continue to use during your trip. We are earth friendly and 100% against plastic especially the one we use one time and throw away. That also why we re use our news papers to put in the wast bbean in the rooms and the bathrooms. Also that s why nearly all our hot water is supplied by a solar system at the roof top. We try to be a much as possible a EArthFriendly Responsible Company. Even everything is not possible to do in Cambodia.
Kind Regards,
Bernard

Was very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The location alongside the river, near the Palace is lovely, and we had a spacious colonial stylish room and a decent sized bathroom.
We were on a higher floor because the upside was that traffic noise was reduced.
Our room faced the road and rives and it was both fascinating and amusing to watch from the balcony as order came from the traffic chaos below! A drink in the rooftop bar as the light goes down is absolutely delighful.
Travelled in May 2014 and was not a member of TripAdvisor then so am finally getting round to complimenting it!

Room Tip: We had a junior suite on 3rd floor with a fantastic view on the river and the quay.

I have made numerous trips to phnom penh over the last 7 years and stayed at a variety of the better hotels and I have to say the Bougainvillier takes some beating.
when I have stayed at Raffles you feel cut off from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here you are in the heart of the action particularly starting from 6pm.
The Bougainvillier rooms and decor are vastly superior to any of the others although it does lack a pool.
I always feel satisfied with the great buffet breakfast and the roof top bar is very pleasant in the evening. Its my favourite place to stay in the city.

After a few accommodation experiences in Cambodia and Phnom Penh during 2 weeks, this hotel was a welcome surprise. It's located in the center within walking distance of the Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda, river and other tourist spots. The rooms are very well maintained, clean and comfortable. Views from balcony of the Sisowath Quay and river are great.
The staff is very warm and inviting, especially Mister Noon, one of the restaurant waiters.
The breakfast was excellent with options for an Asian, American or European style meal.
The roof top bar was nice for a light meal or drink at the end of the day.
It's not a perfect hotel (the lift isn't finished), but you can't beat the location and the views.
Definitely a very good place to stay.
