Overview

French colonial style meets 1920s glamour at this five-star sleep close to Phnom Penh’s top sights

The Look

This 12-story, light-flooded hotel artfully blends contemporary sophistication with 1920s glamour. The striking lobby, with its polished marble floors, lofty coffered ceilings and wrought iron chandeliers, is reminiscent of French colonial design. There are plenty of Khmer touches, too, with rattan furniture, gleaming hardwood floors and gently whirring ceiling fans.

Bed and Bath

The 201 air-conditioned guestrooms and suites channel French colonial style, with muted tones, polished wooden floors and dark wood furniture. Spacious and elegant, they come with all the high-tech necessities — including flat-screen TVs and iPod docking stations — and many have lovely views of the river. Bathrooms come with twin sinks and separate tubs, as well as rain showers, and are stocked with L’Occitane products. Suites and Club Rooms include access to the Club Millesime for daily breakfast and evening wine tastings.

Beyond

Guests are unlikely to go hungry. There are eight restaurants and bars. The flagship eatery, La Coupole, serves a famous Sunday brunch along with Western and Asian fare, and you’ll find traditional Chinese dishes and dim sum at Fu Lu Zu, authentic Japanese at Hachi and brick oven pizza at Do Forni. There’s also a chocolatiere and two poolside eateries. You can work off the gastronmic delights at the So Fit gym by doing laps in the pool or with a game of tennis or squash. Or just head to the So Spa for a relaxing massage.

In the Area

The Royal Palace, with its ornate architecture and golden buddhas, and the National Museum of Cambodia will give you a taste of ancient Khmer culture. The brutal regime of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge decimated the country in the 1970s, and the Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum and Choeung Ek, one of the country’s notorious “killing fields,” serve as a stark reminder. Browse the stalls at the Central Market and on Streets 178 and 240, then stroll along the buzzing riverfront, which is lined with bars and restaurants. Stop for a drink at the iconic Foreign Correspondents Club.

Overall a nice stay at this hotel. It’s a beautiful hotel — big establishment with very friendly helpful staff. Very strong front office staff, right from the moment I came out of the vehicle to the moment I left for home.

Upon arrival, I was escorted to one of the armchairs, served a cold towel and a glass of welcome drink, as a staff attended to the check-in.

Room is big and well appointed, nothing to complain at all of.

Breakfast spread and lunch at the Chinese restaurant were quite alright too, although there’s a lot of waiting for the right food orders to finally reach the table. Just need to be a little more patient and understanding of different cultures and pace of life.
