Costs 15$ and I can recommend it. At first I wasn’t all that keen on the place because the furniture was more sort of simple and my room was not clean at all, well, at least the bathroom wasn’t which was just bad luck. Apart from that I hadn’t heard anyone complaining. The service is correct. Safe deposit box down at the reception, once again the strange not so trustworthy system without ones own key. But there do not seem to be any problems there; one can leave ones ‘things’ with the reception without having to worry (no guarantees). The service is very friendly for Cambodian standards. There is a MASSAGE parlour on the third floor, can be quite fun just strolling past this ‘glass box’, didn’t try it out myself though.
As already mentioned, the rooms are only functionally equipped, but one cannot complain at that price. The TV wasn’t too small, fridge there as well. The bed just about fits three ;-))
Later on I stayed there quite often and was always satisfied. They supply a pickup service from the airport free of charge, one only has to book it per email and one will be picked up, this saves the obligatory seven US Dollars for a taxi.
Have taken another look at the hotel and rooms. The prices are still around 15 USD. The rooms were spotless. OK, the lift is a bit old. Apart from that, TOP for that sort of money. As far as I’m concerned it’s a place for those with a small budget. No safe, not even down at the reception any more. The internet is supposed to work on certain floors, non-binding info. There are larger rooms at the same price, as far as I know the corner rooms, they have pillars in them but are quite large. The best thing to do is simply ask. The location is OK, as far as I’m concerned the best price tip in Phnom Penh; you won’t find anything better for 15 Bucks in PNH. The massage parlour on the third floor is still there. Recently I had female guests in my room quite a few times. Blow job or the old in and out game for about 20 USD. I’ve heard that prices for this have remained quite stable; one still needs to haggle.
