I can see this hotel being a stand-out when it was brand new, but they seem not to be too interested in maintaining their facilities. Woodwork badly worn in room and in need of re-finishing, miniscule tv the size of a computer monitor, and since most movies and shows in Cambodia are sub titled, was impossible to read them. It would have been nicer to have no TV and thus less dissapointment. Bathroom had little privacy since door was a slatted one. Huge curtain over window over looking busy walkway forced us to leave curtains closed when we were in the room, so we couldn't enjoy the view of the gardens. Service at meals was friendly, but the staff were poorly trained. For example, on the bedside tables and breakfast tables they were advertising a Japanese Buffet for the evening, but absolutely none of the staff were able to answer any questions about it. They eventually tracked down the manager (very nice and apologetic however), but if my partner was not a Japanese food addict, we would have given up trying to find out more and gone elsewhere. Front desk staff was charming, bell boys delightful. The location however is perfect, right in front of the river with nicely paved roads nearby, so very little of the choking red dust that pervades most of the city from poorly maintained roads. Room was kept spotless with three times a day house cleaning, and regular replacement of towels and amenities. The added touch of free massage oil was thoughtful, and tho I am not one to stockpile soaps and stuff, I couldn't help but keep my daily little blue glass bottle to take a little stash of them home for gifts. Nice clean white towels, but oddly, no hand towels. Only wash cloths and bath towels. Breakfast was fairly basic for a indochine hotel with a limited menu to order from and no buffet, but served our needs nicely. Thus, the average rating. We probably could have done better for the same price, but were not horribly dissapointed either. Next time we will give it a pass, but if asked, would mention pros and cons and not give a definite thumbs down. Jay Kerch
