Exceptional 10.0
Amazing service!!!
The staff at the hotel was amazing! They prepared breakfast for our early morning bike ride at 4:40 am, booked our bus tickets for us and printed them out, gave us a free ride to the bus station, took our phone and connected it to the wi-fi! Exceptional service! Very friendly, and welcoming! The free massages were amazing! Highly, recommend this hotel! The room was very comfortable with 2 giant tubs in the room!

Great hotel with rooftop pool
Everything was great. The only minor complaint I have is the room requires your key card for the power to work which means the air con shuts off when you leave. It can take a little while for the air con to get the room cool again.

Roach Hotel
This hotel appears nice-looking on the inside and outside of the building, but, overall, it has some problems. It was not a great experience. The highlight of the hotel was its breakfast buffet. There are a lot of opinions to choose and the foods are delicious. The four egg options to choose from are made to order. Even though the breakfast on the 2nd floor was delicious, the dinner on the rooftop was a sub-par experience. The choices for food are very limiting and average at best. My girlfriend thought her food was below average. I thought it was average. I’m used to growing up with boxed pizza. So, I didn’t think it was that bad. The pizza’s sauce tastes like Tony’s boxed pizza’s sauce. The other places in Cambodia were much better in terms of quality. The spaghetti was okay, but not great or above average. The dessert options were limiting and the ice cream was okay. It was nothing special. The cleaning ladies and the doorman were the best staff members. The front desk people were not helpful. After four times politely telling them about having roaches, they’d always just give us a bottle of Raid. We were often scared to use the bathroom because there some big ones in there. A cleaning man just picked up the biggest roach and carried it away. I was not asking for an upgraded room. I just would have liked a similar room without roaches or ants. Yes, you might have many ants in your bathroom and room too. One last thing was the error code E9 on the air con.

An ordinary 4-Star
Hotel was a good value for what we paid. But service was not up to 4-star expectations, we saw few smiles on the faces of the employees, felt weird. When we booked, we thought it would be great to hang at the pool during the warm afternoon, but unlike the photos, there are only three lounge chairs, and they were already filled with chaise lounge lizards, so there wasn't anyplace all after noon for us to hang there after a swim. The hotel isn't close to anything, but not far away, either. Central market was a brisk 14 minute walk up the street, although Phnom Penh is not a walking friendly city except down at the riverfront park. WiFi didn't work for our room, even after someone came to fix it, but we were able to hack into the wifi of another room. Elevators would sometimes randomly go to the wrong floor, then stop there until we re-pushed the button to our floor or the lobby, again weird.

Good stay
Everything was very good here, the only complaint I have and it is minor, room service has no menu in the room. They had to send someone out with one every time we wanted to order.
