The location is excellent, on the pleasant Street 178, right next to the Royal Palace. And there are nice views from the terraces at the front of the hotel. The first room I was given was very small, and the A/C unit was a bit old and rattly; I was able to move into a much larger and quieter twin...

Absolutely perfect location, great breakfast, awesome views from the top floors. A few setbacks though: - some of the staff were shockingly bad at customer service, others were amazing - very old airconditioner, didn't really cool the room at all - rather dark rooms, quite nice, but a bit gloomy - didn't clean the room each day, kept only giving...

We chose this place due to its perfect location in the center of the city. But the personnel is terrible and not friendly. Air con does not work properly. The breakfast is bad (two miserable toasts and a very small of butter) and even there is no free refill for coffee or tea.

For every positive at the Diamond Palace, there seemed an immediate negative. The hotel shuts from 0:00-06:00, arriving shortly after it opened I was told check in would be at 14:00. I presumed this was because of lack of available rooms but after sitting around watching people check out I found it was hotel policy to accept guests only after...

The hotel is in an excellent location near the Royal Palace and riverside. The decor could maybe use a bit of freshening, but the character of the carved doors and ornate ceilings overrode that, in my opinion. Staff did a great job whenever I needed anything. On the morning I left on an early bus, they started breakfast early so...

A horrible hotel, ancient rooms, quite small rooms, broken toilet, rude staff, unclean premises. Not sure what qualifies it to be a hotel. Many many cheaper options available in nearby area. Don't go there unless you have no other choice.

This budget hotel is literally next to the Royal Palace and National Museum! The balconies have an excellent view of these buildings and the royal cremation park. The old-fashioned rooms are small and simply furnished, but very good value for the price you pay and its central location. There are good Khmer restaurants around the block, and more at Sisowath...

We booked this hotel earlier this year for September. It looked to be in a good location and in good condition from the photos we had seen. But, we were wrong. We checked in and went to our room and it was a lot smaller than we thought. No window in the bathroom and no external windows, just a caged...
