Excellent room, very good staff! But beware of the contractual extras... Electricity is charged at more of 150% of the actual rate in place in Cambodia! And a lost magnetic key card at an exorbitant 25 USD. When I complained and told them I felt that was a real rip off, the GM lowered it to 15 USD. I am a very regular traveler worldwide, both for work and privately, and I have never ever been charged for a lost key card in a hotel... In my personal opinion, a hotel should not sell electricity and key cards with exorbitant margins!

Dear Michael Roggeman, Thanks for your review and good to read you liked the room and staff. We are in an exceptional period of time due to COVID with 0 tourists since March 18th, 2020... but TAO made successfully switched from a busy daily hotel establishment to a long-term accommodations provider as our rooms are well equipped for longer stays. You stayed with us for 6 weeks with a special COVID Longstay monthly rental price excluding electricity usage. This is very clearly marked in the contract you signed before renting our apartment. We do charge US$ 0,08 cents more than the official rate as you also use our communal public areas. Regarding the magnetic keycard, I fully agree with you and this should not have been charged to you. I will amend this rule with the front desk staff. Thanks for staying with us and we hope to welcome you back again when you are able to visit Cambodia. All the best, Team TAO.

Perfect location straight on the river in the middle of the town. Within walking distance of most places of interest. We had a loft with river view on the first floor. Very comfortable and spacious room with a big terrace. Very friendly staff.

When we arrived having booked and paid for a penthouse studio we were shown to a second floor room with a veiw of a car repair shop. Not quite a penthouse studio more a room with no view. We declined this room and were then shown to a 4th floor room, still not a penthouse, but we were tired and accepted second best. We had a limited view of the river from the balcony, but were still adjacent to the car repair shop on the side road. Breakfast you can purchase a voucher from the front desk for 2 different restaurants, dont waste your money as there is plenty of choice within 200 yards. Be careful when checking out, we had used 4 items from the mini bar so paid for them the evening before we left, only to find that we were asked for payment again in the morning. Luckily we had asked the front desk to receipt the payment.

Dear Mutiara6970, Thank you for writing a review about your stay with us. We are sorry to read your experience was not as you expected. I (owner) checked with our frontdesk staff, because our aim is to make the stay for all our guests a great one. Our frontdesk agent took you to by mistake to the wrong room, but immediately noticed his mistake and brought you the room you initially reserved, the Penthouse Studio on the 4th floor. It's one of our finest and most booked room type with a large balcony offering spectacular city views and a perpendicular view on the 2 rivers passing Phnom Penh. There is no car repair shop next door or near our hotel. We don't have a restaurant as there are hundreds dotted around our hotel, but we do offer, as a service, for a fair price a great all day breakfast at the adjacent iconic LaCroisette restaurant or the French Eric Kayser Bakery. You can either enjoy the breakfast in your room or in the restaurant. Its a choice we offer upon check in to our guests. Again our sincere apologies for any inconvenience you may have had during your stay with us. All the best, Team TAO

Well when you look at the website and read the reviews it's vary rare to find that it's better than you thought. I had the penthouse which was fabulous with outstanding views. The hotel is quiet with all rooms having soundproof glass so no disturbance from traffic noise. Location is perfect. Housekeeping is prompt as soon as you leave your room it's being cleaned. Staff speak good English and are very helpful. This is a 1st for me when I have no negatives about this hotel just positive feedback. Book here and you won't be disappointed.
