We stayed in a family room here for two nights. Overall, the hotel matched our expectaions based on the website, although the two rooms we stayed in didn't quite look the same as the website photos - neither room had natural light and the beds in the childrens room were two singles, photos imply they are a bit larger.
That said though - the rooms on the ground floor were ideal for a young family in all other ways, being right beside the restaurant and pool, and no climbing the stairs by little legs required :). We ordered food around the pool on both days, and recommend the tapas selection (any three dishes for 13 USD). The loc lac meatballs were great, but hard to beat those Peking duck pancakes, which were a bit awesome.
The hotel is within a few minutes walk to the Royal Palace and the Independence monument, and tuk tuks on hand for all other excursions.
The hotel had pre-arranged an airport pick up for us when we arrived, which didn't arrive. Not a drama as we just got a taxi instead, but as soon as we checked in the reception acknowledged they had been short staffed due to the Khmer New Year holiday, and offered us breakfast to make up for it - much appreciated as we'd arrived at 7 am, so thank you.
A special mention to Lucky in the bar during the afternoon and evening, he is very friendly and funny, thanks for your humour :)
A few tips - some tuks tuks drivers from other areas get confused at which hotel you mean, there is another similar named near the Riverside district, be ready to have some idea of direction to offer ( no mean feat at night in a new city! But I managed it, so not impossible either!). If you stay make sure to donate to the charity the hotel supports, my 17 year old daughter loved the idea and left her hand print on the wall
