Invited here to attend a valentines night party. This limits my review a little however I will give you my initial impressions. The hotel as per title is a cut above the rest and has an interesting history should you be interested. The site is 'a real eye full 'with great presence. Beautiful internal decor and friendly staff.
bighotel i go with my family friendly staff xiaojie chan saoly help me book a nice room river view, i like the breakfast floor smile good only a staff can speak chinese.i will come back again next year book with your website
The location of this hotel is superb. It is central to the city, and the view of the river is fantastic at sunrise. The lobby is fine. Pool area is nice, right on the river. With all that being said, we were surprised by the very average rooms. They felt out of place, like they'd been ripped from a much less prestigious hotel. While clean, they were out of date and crumbling around the edges. Seemed to have a history of smoking in them. We couldn't figure out why the investment hasn't been made to bring the rooms up to par with the rest of the place.
Strategically located in the central business district, Hotel Cambodiana features an outdoor swimming pool overlooking views of the Mekong River Free WiFi is available throughout the property. It is a 450 m walk to Chaktomuk Conference Hall 2, while Aeon Mall is 2.6 km from Hotel Cambodiana. The National Museum and the Independence Monument are about 1.5 km away. The nearest airport, Phnom Penh International Airport is 12.5 km from the property. Airport transfers and shuttle services are available at an additional charge. Air-conditioned rooms feature large windows, offering plenty of natural light. Some units open up to views of the city or the river. Rooms are fitted with a cable TV, safe and a fully-stocked minibar. En suite bathrooms include a hairdryer and free toiletries. Ironing facilities are available upon request.
We booked a "non smoking" room and were allocated a "smoking" room, without being advised of this at check-in. After calling for the Duty Manager, we we transferred to a (allegedly) "non smoking" room, however, the room was not labelled as such. We put up with the odour it as we were only there for two nights.... and we won't be back. The hotel did acknowledge our displeasure and offered my wife a box of chocolates at check-out.
would like to say also i been in camodiana hotel for Exercise and gym and sweeming pool its so nice too ,,, and sometimes i go disco another side so there many Singing can enjoy our drink and dancing also so happy ...
Besides the fantastic location and splendid live band, the rooms are worn out and the staffs are not as efficient as they used to be. Nevertheless, they do serve very good pastries and the lobby lounge is pretty relaxing too. Without a major uplift, this property is going to lose out to many up and coming trendy boutique hotels.
Large hotel with very friendly helpful staff. Great pool and gym area. Also a great pool bar area with lots of snacks. Breakfast was good, plenty on offer. Rooms are huge, however the hotel is in need of a refurbishment. Would stay here again.
I booked for five rooms for my important guests, my colleague and myself and it is probably one of the worst business decisions. The rooms are not cheap by local standards (in fact very expensive) so i expect at least clean and functionging rooms. However, the telephone and shower were both broken in my room, the tv was not working in my colleagues! On top of that, we booked for all non-smoking but only one of the five rooms were given non-smoking and all the rest were horrible moldy smoking rooms. The worst of the experience comes to the staff and especially consiege. They don't speak much english and were unable to understand our basic instructions. We booked a car for a day and it took over 2 hours to explian the route and get the consiege to understand what we need (as they say yes to everything you say but understand nothing). Then we are assigned this non-english speaking driver who took us to the wrong plant that we were almost late for our client's new plant opening( despite 2 hours explanation the night before and showing address on google and on phone and the exact route). The driver took us to a random palace hotel in the nowhere insteand of royal palace! Despite we showed the photo of royal palace on google and the photo of their king! The worst is the driver was supposed to pick me up after sending my colleague back to hotel, we exchanged phone numbers and told him the time but when i called, he was still at the hotel and never pick me up. He said you owe money you pay, but yes, you haven't picked me up to go back to hotel yet how can I pay. The consiege kept on calling saying, you owe money you pay, while I was so frustrated that noone picked me up to go back to hotel and I was stuck at nowhere. Finally, after one hour later than the supposed pickup time, i managed to take a tuktuk back to hotel and the driver had gone to pick me up then? Hello??? Then the consiege kept on calling the room saying you owe money you pay, but the driver was not here yet. Finally, i talked to the guest manager who seemed to be the only english speaking person in the entire hotel and managed to find the driver and pay him and asked the guest manager to tell consiege what happened in Khmer; I hope he understand a bit then? In conclusion, do not book this old and dirty hotel unless you speak the local language. And it is cetainly not worth the 100 dollar per night rate they charge.
I stayed at the hotel on level 5 - on the Club Floor. The rooms had been renovated which was great. The rooms were clean although could do with some carpet replacement where they had pot planst previously. Breakfast buffet was great - best to hav eteh local breakfast of noodles with chicken and beef balls. There is no small shop for amenities in the hotel, but there is a pharmacy at the lobby where you can find most personal items. I am a non-smoker and they put me next to a room where they were smoking. But I noticed they had a small deordoriser plugged in at the front of my door which worked great. It's teh small little things like this that are important when travelling. WIll stay thgere again. Is a great location central to the sites and shops and cafes.
