Stayed here twice in March 2014. It's a great place to stay for business or pleasure. Breakfast is very well done. Ask for Eggs Benedict. Rooms are very nice. You can swim laps in pool if you'd like. Service was top notch. I'd hope to return again and again.

We had booked a Balcony Suite, having been advised that this would offer us a peaceful place (corner room) to come back to after sightseeing. When we arrived though, the "Suite" turned out to be a regular sized room with a tiny extra balcony at the side - and it was overlooking the children's' play pool. We returned to Reception...

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
