Transportation

Just like in Siem Reap, the most popular mode of transportation in Phnom Penh are the tuktuks and motorcycles. It is very easy to roam around Phnom Penh because there are many tuktuks plying in the area. Bicycles are also popular which I think can also be rented by tourists.

If you are going on a tour, there are mini buses for tours going to S21 and the Killing Fields. On our way to the Mekong Express terminal, a small bus also fetched us from the hotel.

Amenities

Among the four hotels where stayed during our trip, this is my least favorite – not because it is not good at all, it’s just that the others are way better.

The room has very simple and basic amenities – one double bed, two single bed, 2 chairs, fridge, tv, and huge but somewhat bare bathroom. It doesn’t even have a side table for the telephone which was just on the floor.

Everything else inside the room is kept simple. It doesn’t have a desk with mirror to put our things😦. Just a plain a simple room for guests looking for a place to sleep at night when the rest of the day is spent enjoying Phnom Penh’s rich culture. A plus factor would be that it is really spacious.

The bathroom is same as the bedroom, very basic amenities like a sink, hot and cold shower and mirror. I can’t even remember if it has a shower curtain. But then again, it is really spacious.🙂

Lobby

The main lobby features the front desk with different clocks for different specific locations around the world. The staff is present 24 hours to assist the guests’ needs and even take breakfast orders for those taking their breakfast at the hotel’s small restaurant.

It has a sofa where guests can hang around or wait for their check in or check out time. Guests can also leave their belongings if they still want to enjoy the city after their check out.
