Nice hotel but some issues
It is a nice well maintained modern hotel. Some staff issues - on checkin they could not trace my booking. After 10 minutes I was given a key but the room had not been made up. I waited a further 10 minutes and got another room. Took a shower went out but noticed air con not working when I returned. Engineer was useless. I moved room again and this time no problems. Nice room, breakfast is good. They may have lost regular / trained staff due to COVID!

hotel ok, app never ever!
Due to my frequent travels, I usually use apps that allow me to earn points on my frequent flyer airline cards. This time I chose to use because it was cheaper than on other websites. Online booking went smooth and all was ok. The third and last day we decided to stay one more night and extended and paid (50$) trough the app the stay. Yet once back in the hotel, after dinner, we have been told there is no availability and there is no room for us. There was also no possibility to cancel the booking as in the meanwhile midnight passed. Being late in the night, in Cambodia, we accepted to be upgraded to the hotel in front of us. Once packed and arrived, the “upgrade” room had nothing to do with what we have booked, the guesthouse hadn’t facilities we paid for, curtains were broken, the fridge empty, no swimming pool etc. all this isn’t of course terrible, it was even an ok place, but not for 50$. I checked their rates online and those rooms were sold for 20$! I got in touch via chat with assistant who sweared these things never happen and wrote me to wait online while he would call the hotel. He did so, but in those 20mim the connection went lost and we had to start from the very beginning: another assistant, the same procedure, details, names, codes, he calls again the hotel, he the hotel calls the manager, the assistant calls the hotel back, the receptionist calls the manager back ... after another 45 minutes in which we have be

Good hotel for a short stay
In general the hotel is good. Its location is okay. It is within walkable distance to the main Palace of the city (City Center). At the same time there is nothing really near the hotel (no shops, restaurants, clubs or massage salons). Hotel’s front desk staff was super sweet and helpful. I took a taxi from the airport to the hotel and I payed $18 for that ride. When I told that to the front desk guy he was shocked and suggested ordering a taxi for me back to the airport for $13. The next day the taxi arrived in time and I had no issues with checking-out at all. My room was pretty simply designed, but good looking. The bed was big and comfortable. The bathroom was tiny, but the shower was big enough and comfortable. The bathroom amenities were okay. Wi-Fi was fast. The additional plus for the hotel was there were free drinks inside of the refrigerator (Coke, Sprite, water and beer).
