After we found out that the two other hotels where we wanted to stay were fully booked, we asked the tuk-tuk driver to take us somewhere in the neighbourhood and we finished up in the Paragon Hotel.
When we arrived to the hotel we said we dont know how long we wanted to stay and the receptionist only wanted to see one passport, they didnt even want a deposit for the key, nothing. (At the end we stayed for 3 nights).
During the night shift there were always two guys at the reception who were really nice and friendly, but the stuff working during the day was a complete opposite, especially one Chinese-looking guy who was always forcing us to use overpriced tuk-tuk services of his friend etc.
The reception has safety boxes where it was possible to leave valuables for free and one gets a key. We could leave there our passports etc. there even after checking out from the hotel, it was not a problem.
In the reception area there was an ATM too and they are selling cold drinks too.
We paid 23 dollars per a double room on the 3rd floor with a view to backyard, but we were always out until late night, so this didnt really bother us. They had also cheaper rooms available and more expensive ones with the view for the river.
Our room was equipped with a small fridge, AC and a small low-quality TV with very few channels in English (but we didnt come to Cambodia to watch TV, so this also didnt bother us at all).
I think the room was clean, the sheets and towels were fine as well. Actually the bathroom was surprisingly clean, quite big and with hot water. We received the traditional tooth-brushes, soap and hair shampoo.
But it is true that the hotel elevator was out of order and not working (already that time I was wondering if it has EVER been working), but one of the guys from the reception helped out with the luggage. Beware the stairs because not all of them have the same height!! :))
