The Pavilion must be the very best place to stay in Phnom Penh. The setting and staff are exceptional. Centrally located near the riverfront and royal palace and museum, the grounds and pool are gorgeous, breakfast is a poolside highlight……
….rooms are nicely decorated and it is amazing value.
And then there is the complimentary 25min massage!!
The pool rooms at $100US are good is you’d like to swim in privacy. The road facing 31 and 14 are sunnier, but the pool,facing 11 and 12 have more windows. (14)
However the standard room 24 at $60US is a nicer more spacious room and the main pool is lovely to swim in.
If you’d like a jacuzzi, in a private garden for $90US take room 20.
Room 24 at $110 is huge with a private outside area and can sleep 4.
The complimentary breakfast includes your selection of fruit, bakery items, muesli as well as cooked items like eggs and a porridge which is delicious and more like a soup delicately flavoured with fresh ginger, coriander and other fresh herbs and spices.
The coffee is Cambodian style an excellent.
The $22US vintage jaguar ride is smooth and seamless and a bit special, but a taxi pick up,is $10US and better value. ( Pre-paid taxi at the AirPrint is $12US).
Staff are very knowledgable , caring and helpful.
The offer excellent suggestions for places to eat and where to go. Nearby ‘Sugar Palm’ is a great spot and good for Khmer chicken and special lacy spring rolls.
Free wifi with good coverage.
Room safe, fridge and tea and coffee making facilities.
