Came across this on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. It is somewhere between a small backpacker hotel and a "boutique". The first impression driving up is a bit unsettling (large walls, gate, broken sidewalk, etc) but normal as Phnom Penh is not known for its posh neighborhoods. Once inside and you soak it up it is...

Circa51 ticks all the boxes, from check in to check out. This place is a sanctuary and has a great ambience. Really terrific staff, and divine owners who go out of their way to make you feel totally at home. Lovely garden and amazing pool area with lots of space to chill. We really loved our experience at Circa 51...

On first sighting I was reaching for the phone to find an alternative. The initial impression was of a worn out hostel for old backpackers. But don't be put off. The rooms were neat, clean and perfectly adequate for a couple of nights. It is great value for money. (I paid twice as much to stay at the Plantation and...

A boutique hotel, close to the Royal Palace and National Museum, it had the perfect location. Unlike newer hotels, it is charming and has original features, reminiscent of colonial past. The pool is warm, even now, in winter. The staff are really friendly, happy hour is 4-7 with beers on BOGOF (buy one, get one free). Breakfasts are delicious, with...

You can find cheaper places than this, but I'm very pleased I chose to pay for the extra quality. The owner, Majid and his staff are lovely. The pool is shaded but very relaxing. Breakfast is very good. Try the fruit smoothies! I travelled alone and Majid even invited me out for the evening with his friend. What a lovely...

Circa 51 is one of the best places I have stayed. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are really nice and great value for money. Phenom pehn is a very busy city and circa 51 is a calm place to relax after a day out. Stay here! Jake, London

I was looking for a comfortable place to finish off my 7 weeks in Phnom Penh, so I stayed here for my final weekend. It was an wonderful way to end my time in Cambodia, I only wish I could have stayed there longer. It is a little more expensive than many hotels in the city, but a comparable hotel...

I had the pleasure of staying at Circa 51 last year and as I was holidaying in Cambodia recently decided to go back! I was not disappointed. I was greeted by Sorya upon arrival and felt immediately at home! I booked the same room I had last year - the Deluxe Suite - which is large and very confortable. Circa...
