Our recent stay at the Empress was good, the location of the hotel is far enough out of the city to be quiet, but close enough that a short 15 minute tuk tuk ride gets you into the centre for restaurants, sight seeing, markets, etc...
The rooms are large and clean, the room we had was an adjoining rooms which were good. The water cannot be drunk but they supply plenty of bottled water . The drainage of the shower, bath and sinks were poor, which was annoying with 5 having showers, the floor was like a bath.
The banquet breakfast was very good, with a wide range of food available for all preferences. I especially enjoy asian foods when travelling so had the choice of noodle soup with various meats each morning for our long days.
The hotel was close to the friendship road which leads to the temples, and across the road to the cultural centre (would not recommend - unless with children, and not translated to english).
In the city there is plenty to do, the night markets are great, a wide range of things to see and buy, the 'pub steet' has some great restaurants, the old markets were fun to see the foods being prepared and sold, and the clothes, silverware was everywhere for sale.
We visited the landmine museum which I would recommend to learn about the khmer rouge history and the ongoing issues with landmines in the area.
