My girlfriend and I stayed three nights at the small hotel in a room for 23$. It was equipped with AC, a safe, a TV and a fridge. It was clean and cleaned every day and we had hot water and wifi. The small hotel is located quite far away from the nightlife of Sihanoukville, so if you want to...

It's a nice hotel, the room well provided with niceties like soap, shampoo etc - the loo was European (which was a nice surprise) and the staff could not have been more helpful. It's very central to Sihanoukville so expect a tuk tuk or about 30 minute walk to the beaches etc, but the hotel front is definitely more salubrious...

We stopped here just for one night after our trip to the islands, we really enjoyed our stay: the room was tidy, clean, comfortable and with Air conditioning.The staff was super kind, nice and helpful for every request we had. The food was great as well. Overall it was a very enjoyable stay and good value for money!

Rooms are good size and very clean. Staff are lovely and very helpful with booking buses etc. The best thing is the food, best Khmer food we have had in Cambodia. Try the curry and fried sweet and sour pork. There is also a huge selection of books and DVDs. Very comfortable stay.

Loved the female staff at the reception, very very helpful and welcoming! Wifi in my room upstairs was a bit poor and location wasn't the best, with a tuktuk ride to the beach costing $3 each way. However on my check out, I found out that this hotel offered free rides to Independence beach - be sure to geab this...

Located downtown rather than on the strip, this hotel sits on a quiet backstreet. The Swedish owner is very pleasant and helpful, as are all of his staff. There's a large selection of books and a comfy common area at the front, along with the restaurant. The food served there was as tasty as anywhere else we tried in town....
