Villa Langka is in the shadow of a very nearby and impressive looking Wat which can be seen from the pool area. It's a nice pool and was not very crowded when I was there. Everything about the hotel seems to suggest the vertical, lots of tall slender bamboo and other trees surrounding the pool and the rooms themselves must have 15 foot ceilings. The standard rooms are small and really not very inviting. They are clean enough but have tiny LCD televisions which are no fun to watch. The bathrooms don't have sufficient lighting and the robes which are provided are made for very small Asians. Just try to squeeze into one. I was told when I checked in that the hotel had hot water which is a strange thing to say since I don't recall having hot water problems on my earlier visits to the city. As it turned out, the hotel did not have hot water. Maybe the receptionist had been trying to tell me so and I had misunderstood. That was a bit of an aggravation.
The hotel is at its best in its common areas and I think the whole experience would be a much better one if you spring for a room upgrade. The standard room just won't cut it.
By Phnom Penh standards the hotel is in an excellent area. It's quiet and there are plenty of good restaurants just minutes away. The hotel restaurant serves excellent salads at reasonable prices. They really should upgrade the breakfast buffet. It's a bit above mediocre but with a few more Western offerings, it could be a good one.
The staff speaks pretty good English and they were quite professional. It's a restful place to stay. Like most places in Phnom Penh, you only have to walk out the door of the hotel to find a waiting tuk tuk.
