HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 14 February 2017

The rooms vary from small comfortable to large suites, from rooms in the modern wing to suites in the original building. Prices also vary accordingly. Service is excellent. Breakfast is served in the Cafe- an ample buffet with western and eastern offerings. The same cafe offers dinner- again a buffet. We preferred dinner in the Le Royal restaurant, which offers...

Stayed 7 nights at Raffles hotel in Phnom Penh with our two grandchildren, what a wonderful week we had. The hotel is beautiful especially the grounds and pool area but what made our stay so special was the beautiful staff, nothing was too much trouble for them. Hotel is a short tuk tuk ride to the riverfront and many restaurants...

Remember the movie Somewhere in Time, the smoochy romantic film starring the gorgeous Jane Seymour and the late Christopher Reeves?

I've been staying at Raffles each visit over the past decade - and enjoy it every time. The colonial charm is very welcoming, as is the attentive and ever courteous staff. The rooms are very comfortable, as well as the common rooms. Great buffet breakfast. Nice pools. Head to the iconic Elephant Bar for a nightcap!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A history of hospitality. The luxury of time. The secret charm of Cambodia. One of Asia's essential destination hotels, Raffles Phnom Penh has been the iconic resting place for the well travelled since 1929. Located in the heart of vibrant Phnom Penh, our hotel has been part of the history of the city and welcomes, as it has always done, a diverse clientele of entrepreneurs, writers, journalists, royalty and intrepid travellers from across the globe. Rooms and suites have been respectfully restored to reflect a distinguished blend of Khmer, Art Deco and French colonial architecture. Dining is an essential part of the Phnom Penh experience. In keeping with history and a sense of place, the elegant Le Royal Restaurant serves modern French cuisine and Royal Khmer cuisine with original recipes graciously gifted to Raffles from the Royal Palace. Almost as famous as the hotel itself, is the Elephant Bar where local residents and visitors alike gather over wine, whisky and cocktails. The Raffles Spa offers relaxation, rejuvenation and fitness through a considered mix of local and classic treatments, gym and spa pool. Complete your visit to Cambodia with a stay at our sister hotel Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor, a great hotel of the legendary Grand Tour of Indochina and virtually at the doorstep of the Angkor UNESCO World Heritage site. ... more   less
