Royal Guest House, Phnom Penh

By Claire vd Heever Jan 12, 2012

Where the customer really is king

Royal Guesthouse is a welcome relief – depending on where you’ve come from, of course. After overnight treks and cold showers in Chi Phat, its crisp linen, sprung mattresses and white high ceilinged rooms were regal enough for me. Their professional staff are helpful, competent English-speakers who can book transport, tours and arrange visas. Films about Cambodia’s dark history and its traditional culture are shown in the street-side restaurant where – with its daily drinks specials – you could spend more than a few happy hours.

Cost: Eight US dollars for a double room with fan, cable TV and en suite bathroom. Air conditioned rooms cost three to four dollars more. WiFi is hotel-wide.

Finding it: Street 154, Phsar Kandal II, Khan Daun Penh, Phnom Penh. In a central location a few blocks from the riverside, on the corner of street 154 and street 23. (See map below.)
