5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

When visiting Cambodia capital city we decided to book this splendid hotel after some days on the beach at Sihanoukville. Everything was perfect! The staff were very kind always attentive! The room was nice and had a balcony to the pool. Very good breakfast. We also had dinner twice at the hotel restaurants and everything was very good. The pool was good and the service at the pool, also very good. Certainly recommended and we will come back again.

Cigar Lounge, fine dining, bar, pool lots of service available and a few shops. It has everything in one and is worth the extra to stay here than other luxury hotels in Phnom Penh. Elephant bar had a huge selection of whisky. Only comment slightly pricey outside of happy hour for phnom penh $12 cocktails and tapas.

This Hotel is one of the greatest places we have stayed. The building is spectacular and you immediately feel like in a golden age Palace. The courtyard with the two swimming pools is spectacular, especially at night with a perfect lighting. Rooms are not huge but very well maintained and beautifully decorated. The Butler who escorted us was very professional and well trained, very helpful without being intrusive. Excellent breakfast with a rich choice of tasty products. Service was faultless and the Maitre d’H Thomas was extremely nice to talk with. The Elephant bar was not up to the rest as the ambiance was a bit cold but Cocktails were creative and delicious. The Hotel location is excellent, in front of the US embassy (no risk for safety though!) on a quiet boulevard. The Wat Phnom Pagoda is just 5 minutes walking distance. A place not to be missed!

It's quite difficult to place your finger on why the hotel is so very appealing. Ok, so the Elephant Bar is special and serves excellent gin martinis (for example). The pool area is very pleasant with good service. The rooms are comfortable - good bed, linen and shower. The service is up there as you would expect. The breakfast restaurant offers good variety - and an informal location for dinner. Whereas, the Restaurant Le Royal offers food of the highest quality. Add these things together and Raffles is clearly a place to stay in Phnom Penh. Stir in an extra X-factor ingredient - is it just the name or is it the traditional characteristics? - and you get a really enjoyable stay that lingers in the memory.

Only spent two nights at Raffles which I spent a lot on, for that touch of special being the last nights of my holiday. This was a real disappointment. My room is at the back of the hotel and it feels like I'm sleeping on the street with all the traffic zipping past, as well as being right next to the lift The view from my room is the street Luckily the traffic is less during the night so I can get some sleep. Do I feel special, no and I have paid good money for this Breakfast is good Cost for food and drinks in US dollars and again expensive on a comparable scale outside I will not return

Raffles Le Royal Phnom-Penh is an icon. Excellent location in the heart of the city, safe and wide vista avenues Le Royal enjoys an imposing facade and a welcome lobby entrance Stunning private pool and relaxation area outside, well maintained towel refreshes The Elephant Bar is a social epicentre, echoes of former colonial glories. I was a little sad to note the billiard room has disappeared since a previous stay, but perhaps it facilitated more space. It is worth noting there are outside seating area by the garden, with its elegant displays of frangipani Vodka with breakfast is a novelty The food menu is well balanced and residents might take advantage of the happy hour on cocktails. I can recommend the tuna wrap entree. Mr Seng Duty Manager is worthy of a special mention

If you fancy a good traditional afternoon tea with sandwiches, cakes and scones go here. Not cheap (but possibly one of the cheaper ways to get into Raffles) but great and endless cups of tea provided - heaven. Expect to pay around 18 dollars or 30 with champagne. And see how the other half live!

For a large hotel friendly attentive high quality service and food. Elephant bar a must. Superb breakfasts, two great pools. Staff courteous and helpful. Poolside water and fruit kebab brought as soon as you sit down

We stayed here on the last night of our holiday. You gat the obligatory cold towel and drink on arrival. The staff are all very helpful and can not do enough for you. The rooms are beautifully decorated with wooden floors. The bathrooms have everything you need ours had a bath and shower separated. The bathroom was a little tired but it was very clean. There are 2 swimming pools one for children and the other for adults. The elephant bar is a must to visit for cocktails. With a pianist playing you feel like you are back in the colonial times. There are 2 restaurants one fine dinning with an a la carte menu, a buffet restaurant where you can choose from the buffet or have food from the a la carte menu. You can also get food in the elephant bar. I would recommend this hotel.

The Raffles Hotel in PP was great. The Elephant Bar serves good light food and the drinks were cold with plenty of ice. Their fine dining restaurant served a great dinner with plenty of Khmer cuisine to sample. Centrally located its convenient to all the attractions of PP if you're brave enough to take a tuk-tuk. !!
