Worth for money”

I was stayed here for 5 days due to an event were held in this hotel. What can I say, the hospitality was a top-notch for 4 stars hotel. The staff really helpful, work hard and passionate in what they do. Credit to Ms. Choumeng from office and Ms. General manager, i forgot her name. Not to forget, Mr. Prechit from facilities department or I first me him at their rooftop restaurant, Moon Pizza..you guys seriously should come to this hotel, the in-house pizza was delicious, I'm in love with spicy seafood spaghetti, it so yummy as I ordered for it 2 consecutive days. And not to forget, front desk team who entertain my delegates so well, Mr. Min Esan and others.. I really recommend this hotel if you wish to organise any event, or just stay for leisure holiday. It is in city centre area itself but not in busy area, halal restaurant, coffee house and convenient store are nearby. Walking distance to central market too. Overall, I am very satisfied customer. Good job.

Loved my stay at this hotel”

Loved the breakfast buffet, although a bit more variety every day would be good. Looks like there was a full restaurant menu at lunchtime when no one was around, and a pizza and snack menu at night time when it was busy. Safe, very comfortable, love love love the staff (most speak very good English), great air conditioning, car & motorbike parking (staff organised motorbike rental), lovely pool (although it feels a bit strange swimming when everyone else is having dinner, I did it nonetheless). Will gladly stay there again as long as I get the same Agoda rate. I think their standard room rate is too high for Phnom Penh.

We took the night bus from Siem Reap tried checking in early but hotel was fully booked. We left our luggage and receptionist advised to return around noon then we were able to check in (well, earlier than the usual 2pm check in). Had a great stay at the hotel. Quite far from tourist spots but just short tuktuk ride away. Breakfast spread was really good, lots of choices! Hope to come back next time!
