I stayed here with my partner while on a holiday to visit a friend working in Cambodia. The cab driver initially had difficulty finding the hotel as the entrance was nondescript and very subtle. However upon locating the hotel, man were we impressed. The lobby was spacious, modern-chic and very inviting. Immediately the hustle of tuk tuks outside the hotel simply melted away and we were transported into a Balinese themed paradise.
Check-in was smooth and fast.
Room was well-done up and very spacious. Bed was big and comfortable. The air-con was really good as well. I really loved how the room was designed with the very big wardrobe to tuck away all our bags and clothes out of sight.
The shower room was of the "wet-style" where there are no shower curtains and the shower room is meant to be wet when you shower. The rain-shower head was ENORMOUS! And hot-water wasn't a problem.
The Hotel is quiet, peaceful and pleasant. My partner and I really enjoyed our stay at Blue Tongue. To my good friend's chagrin, the rooms had no individual telephones, so he had to call the reception desk and i had to come down to pick up the call.
Breakfast was EXCELLENT. The Mushroom Baguette was a real Thumbs up. Pity we didn't get to eat the breakfast for the remaining days we were there as we were often too tired or hung-over to wake up :)
Staffs were friendly and helpful too!
A real good value for money hotel!
Oh and it is within 5 minutes walking distance from the best club in Phnom Penh, which was St. Tropez (To the delight of my partner and friend) and midnight hunger pangs (Also to the delight of my partner and I) are no biggie as there are smatterings of 24 hour convenience stores around the area.
Check out was smooth, fuss-free and the hotel employs a tuk-tuk. He charges a little higher than the rest, but a little bargaining won't hurt :)
