Very comfortable hotel where there is attention given to detail. Focus us for the weary traveller to be well rested and get what ther want. I was really happy on my short trip here and will be always choosing this to stay in whenever I visit Phnom Penh again!
Bathtub was scratched, toiletries were very basic, mirror had spots on it, no ventilation or exhaust fan in the toilet so it was a bit damp; no clock / alarm in the room to indicate time. Other than these, the room was fine
This was a Business trip. Good neat clean hotel. Great breakfast. A must try. Room is very spacious, pristine clean. Staff pleasant and friendly and helpful. Airport transfer can be arranged. Conference facilities are available
It takes 2.5 hours to get to and from the airport during peak hours. You need at least US15 for a taxi ride to your hotel. There are more cars on the road than I remembered and it is chaotic like Myanmar.
This was my second stay in Hotel Cambodiana. As opposed to the previous experience the hotel looked quite empty after three years. The place has a grand facade and a spacious front car park. The fitting in the rooms are quite old but nothing to complain. They all function well. The staff is friendly and helpful. The front desk can be slow so make sure you keep room for time if in a hurry. The breakfast is quite standard. The best is the walking path to the river in the back of the hotel. A great place to do yoga in the morning!
Room 410 - excellent view over pool and the convergence where Tonle Sap Lake and the Mekong River meet. Lots of water traffic to see and stunning sunrises. Two huge comfy beds. Big rooms including a small table and a couple of chairs. Bathroom OK but needs refurbishment - the old hotel is in need of a makeover. Quay has now been extended to go around the outside of this hotel so you could walk uptown or down, past the car ferry landing, to the bistros and bars at night. Reminder that this gate is locked early at night and this means you have to walk all around the front of the hotel to get in. Pool good but area could do with some more shade. Massage and gym available. Breakfast had a good selection and one of the best 'egg chefs' i have experienced.
Had a wonderful time.The rooms were huge and clean. Somewhat vintage style. Found it worth it. Not Cheap but not expensive either (for Western standards). This historic hotel was a Phnom Penh landmark built in the 1960s by norodom Sihanouk. He commissioned the most famous architect of that time.during the civil war it was occupied by evacuees from the provinces as safe shelter. Huge artillery cannons used to stand on it's front and back due to its strategic position right in front of the river. I read somewhere that this was supposed to be the place where the last stand was.Saw it from old "fall of Phnom Penh 1970s photographs".i love history and that's why I chose this hotel. Within a short walk to Royal palace, national museum, lots of restaurants
Although the staff were very friendly and helpful and it is close to the river boulevard, the hotel itself is in desperate need of refurbishment. In my room, the carpets were threadbare, the bathroom vanity was covered in cigarette burns and the bath was chipped in several places. In a 150 dollar a night hotel in a city where you can stay in a really nice boutique hotel for 35 dollars a night, this isn't acceptable
This is one of the oldest hotels in Phnom Penh and it shows. The hotel is huge and rooms are spacious but dated and need a lot of upkeep. The staff is helpful and polite, the best part of the hotel is the location, it is situated right on the bank of Mekong and views from the restaurant are amazing. The rates are very reasonable too and there are many good restaurants at the river front.
The hotel is very clean and organized and it has a very nice pool with a view of the Matong river. The breakfast was very good and had lots of varieties. The problem is that it lacks charachter or maybe it is a little bit business oriented. Another problem is that my room was leaking water because of the air conditioning. So i asked room service to help me they were very responsive and fixed it. However, the problem occured again in the next day so i had to change my room in the middle of the night. The staff was very responsive though and the room was changed inmediately.
