Excellent location in a cul de sac with only local traffic - salubrious area with some diplomatic residences close by. Its very residential so you will need transport to visit tourist sites and riverside but the trade off is the tranquility
Newly opened and really friendly helpful staff - the GM Sophal is omni present and always ready to help and offer advice. Lots of nice touches like near the entry/departure gate is a sign board detailing recommended prices for tuk tuks to various locations - very helpful for those not familiar with tuk tuk prices or adverse to bargining
Rooms are fine -with good walk in showers
F&B is surprisingly good for a hotel of this size - passion fruit juice and Mama's dumplings are to die for .
there is in house massage which is excellent - understand the staff are from Mr and Miss Care massage which is also owned by the hotel
Despite the location which might deter first time visitors I would throughly recommend staying
