AMANJAYA Pancam Suites Hotel
Ranked #48 of 274 Hotels in Phnom Penh
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 April 2014

We stayed in a junior suit which was an extremely generous size, beautifully decorated in a traditional style and had fantastic views over the river. I expected some noise from the busy road that runs in front and around the side of the hotel, but once the doors were closed the room was surprisingly quiet and we weren't disturbed at all. The large bed was very comfortable and the en-suite bathroom had a full sized bath as well as a large walk in shower and a separate toilet. It was spotlessly clean and the complementary toiletries were lovely. Breakfast was included in our room rate and was witness service. Although the food was good, service was very slow and the orders were mixed up on a couple of occasions. Staff were happy to rectify wrong orders, but this took extra time! Despite slow breakfast service I would still recommend this hotel as its very good value for money, a fantastic location and the bedrooms rooms are of a high standard.

The hotel was under repair when we were there so it wouldn't be fair to comment on its decor or design but the room was spacious and had a lovely balcony from which we had a spectacular view of the water. It was also perfect for people watching because there was a public park along the water front. It is one of those rare hotels that actually has a long mirror in the room.

Breakfast in the dining room was good. The hotel was perfectly located for sight seeing in Phnom Penh.

we only went to have lunch during the day and drinks at "the moon", the rooftop bar.
very good location
the restaurant is nice and cool, the food good, service good too. a safe and food address
at the bar, service is friendly but not very fast (french management?), drinks are OK, my margarita was pretty average, the deco is nice but without any originality, the sofas comfortable but the music was too loud for us. live music was fun thought i was not impressed by the talents.
in a nutshell this is a trendy place AND the view is fantastic: over the river and on quay sisowath, bustling night and day. you come here to enjoy the view and the atmosphere, that's all (Eclipse serves better cocktails and has given more attention to the deco and service is much better. but it's not in front of the river...)
avoid sofas in the left corner and in the middle (there is no air and you are hot!). I liked the high chairs along the ramp at the right corner overlooking the quay.

The bedrooms in this hotel were extremely spacious - we had a Junior Suite with a lovely balcony at the corner of the hotel overlooking to Royal Place grounds to the right and the river to the left. Mozzies could have been a problem in the room at night but the staff were very quick to provide insect spray as soon as we asked. Unfortunately we found the breakfast experience less than efficient - very slow, usually the wrong order arrived for the four of us, the fruit and cereal was served with the hot food. This was the only hotel during our month in Cambodia and Vietnam that had waitress rather than self service breakfast. Big screen TV and a bar serving alcohol in the restaurant at breakfast, so we assumed this type of service is preferred by Cambodian businessmen in the capital city.

We spent two weeks (in February) in Cambodia, splitting our time between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. We also stayed at the Shinta Mani hotel, Siem Reap, and the White Mansion in Phnom Penh, which we have reviewed separately.

We stayed at the Amanjaya Pancam for five nights before moving on to Siem Reap. The transfer from the airport takes approx. 45 minutes.

The staff were friendly and polite, although the reception area was a bit drab. We stayed in a Junior Suite. The room was large and clean. Complimentary bottled water was provided, plus a selection of fresh fruit, tea/coffee making facilities and a newspaper, all replenished daily. Wi-fi was intermittent.

Our room was on the third floor, immediately below the rooftop bar. The bar itself was nice, but is on wooden decking so every time a piece of furniture was moved, it was very noisy in our room. It was worse when the staff were closing up for the night (usually after 1am) when they put all the furniture back to its original position. We were due to come back to this hotel for our last two nights in Cambodia but this was one of the reasons (in addition to the fact that there were no grounds or swimming pool) we chose another hotel (the White Mansion).

Breakfast was served at the K-West restaurant in the hotel. The choice was limited to an a la carte menu and was average. We ate dinner a couple of times at the K-West - the food was also average. They have happy hour at K-West from 6-8pm (two drinks for the price of one). We also ate at Titanic restaurant about a 10 minute walk exiting left from the hotel. The setting by the river is nice, and it is over the road from the night market. The service was friendly but the food again was average.

One place we would highly recommend stopping for coffee/cake/lunch is Daughters of Cambodia. It is located on 178 street just down from the entrance to the National museum and opposite the University of fine arts, among all the art shops. It is a 10 minute walk from the hotel. It is a shop, café, spa combined and all the employees are young girls who were sold into sex slavery but have now been offered a route out of the sex industry. They are paid a salary, taught life skills etc designed to let them lead independent lives.

The hotel was in a good central location for seeing all the main sights - walking distance to the Royal Palace, temples, museum, good for walking along the river, accessing numerous bars and restaurants. It’s also easy to get to the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and the Killing Fields site just outside Phnom Penh by taxi or Tuk-Tuk. All the sites we visited were very interesting.

There were a few shopping places worth a visit, the Central Market, the Soraya shopping mall (near the central market). The night market, only open on weekends, was extremely crowded.

We walked to a lot of places, but you need to be alert at all times when crossing the roads. Vehicles do not stop. They just go around you. To cross the roads wait for small break and walk straight across. However, always keep looking both ways as you will often find bikes approaching in the wrong lane! Alternatively, get a Tuk-Tuk. Drivers will haggle but we never paid more than $2 (there were two of us) per trip. If you try to pick one up outside a main centre, they will always try to charge you more but just walk around the corner. On a plus point, they were some of the friendliest Tuk-Tuk drivers we have come across in the whole of Asia (as were people generally).

We paid in US dollars everywhere. You get change in both dollars and Cambodian Riel for the small amounts. We donated the Riel to various charities throughout the journey, but there are a number of charity collection boxes at Phnom Penn airport if you have any left over. Make sure the US dollar notes are clean and new. Many stallholders, shop owners etc would not accept worn notes. If you change up currency make sure you only accept new/newish notes.

We had an overland transfer to Siem Reap. For those considering doing this, it’s around a six hour journey, the roads are pretty bad and driving habits are questionable, but we enjoyed it! We would, however, recommend you do this trip during the day. Most people fly, but you do get a much better feel of the country. There is a nice rest stop by a lake (which most travelers appear to stop at) which is about four hours from Phnom Penh, just past Kampong Thom.

We were upgraded to this suite and it was approx. 800 sf--huge! Also, best shower ever. The Amanjaya itself is close to all the restaurants and bars on Sisowath Quay as well as the King's Palace about a block distant.

Upon arrival first impressions were lovely with cool wooden floors and a welcome fruit drink. We were upgraded(not sure how or why) to a deluxe suite which when we entered the room was incredibly impressive on size......huge!! However the floors were very slippy, the bed very hard, the toilet tiny(in comparison to the double sink bathroom) but the view was great from the front balcony.
The air conditioning was good and overall quiet. The staff, as ever in Cambodia, were smiling and helpful however breakfast was average at best.
The hotel is close to a Wat and on the riverfront, ensuring easy access to all of Phnom Penh's sights and restaurants. We ate at the FCC on both our nights an fit was a great atmosphere with good food and beer.
The rooftop bar at the hotel had great views, especially at sunset.
