I stayed at this hotel for a short stint from May 27-29, 2014.
This was my first time in Cambodia, so my family and I were ecstatic that the hotel was wonderful. I had initially booked 2 standard rooms, one with an extra bed. The hotel was nice enough to upgrade one of the rooms for me. The rooms were comfortable with everything we needed: working a/c, running water for showering in our own bathroom. No elevators in the hotel so if you have a bad relationship with stairs, I'd request a room on the lower floors.
We loved the attached restaurant. The breakfasts were great and the 1 time we had dinner there was wonderful. We would sit outside for drinks and it was so serene, even though the patio is next to the street. There's a buffer of foliage and plants that make all the difference. The decor throughout the hotel was beautiful.
A huge perk was the complimentary laundry. When you're exploring in the heat and humidity, I find your clothes start to smell ripe real quick. It was a quick turn around for clothes as well: if you have your laundry out and picked up before 8am, it will come back same day. Loved the tropical scent it came back with. That lovely fragrance stood the test of time (and humidity) for a week if you didn't wear the clothes.
The staff was very helpful and attentive. They were very quick at replying to my emails for any questions and requests that I had. They were able to organize some drivers for me on short notice. The drivers they chose were wonderful and we used them for the rest of our short stay.
I would definitely recommend this hotel. The location was great – not too busy and lots of stuff a short walk away. Lots of restaurants and shops speckled in every direction.
