I arrived Phnom Penh off a late flight. The Alibi Guesthouse had arranged for a tuktuk to meet me at the airport ( much appreciated). My room was on the first floor. The room was clean, spacious, with a nice private bathroom. I had a fan plus aircon and a small fridge ( not necessary but was useful ). Off...

We stayed here for several nights in April 2014. This old mansion is a lovely old building with a stunning staircase and a lovely courtyard they have filled with palms and plants making it a lovely area. We stayed on the top floor and highly recommend that this floor is avoided, due to the extreme final staircase that has to...

My wife and I stayed for a week at this hotel. The hotel is near the palace ,so it is in the part of the city that the king chooses to live. You can walk to everything except the Russian market from there. We had no problem with tuk tuk drivers at breakfast as others have reported. No driver came...

Glad I booked this guesthouse. We arrived from Ho Chi Minh by the Mekong Express bus, there were tuk tuks waiting on arrival and it only took 15min and $4 to transport 3 of us to the hotel. It is a pretty, tradional establishment in a good location, it is really close to the Royal Palace and the busy Riverside...

Set in an alley off one of the main boulevards close to riverside, royal palace and national museum. Super friendly and helpful staff. For the price, this place exceeded our expectations. Clean, very comfortable, stylish surroundings. The breakfast was included and was great. I would recommend this place to others. We booked an airport transfer and it was straightforward and...

Walking distance to Sisowath Quay (a beautiful riverside boardwalk, abounding with street-side cafes and shops), and yet set back in a quiet alley. Inside the gate, the courtyard is tranquil and inviting. Inside the hotel itself, the staff is friendly and the room is comfortable – with both a/c and fan. It does have a “wet bath” (meaning there is...

If you're looking for a clean, nice and budget-friendly guesthouse in Phnom Penh, then, this is the place to stay. Someone's gonna pick you up from the Phnom Penh Internation Airport and then it'll take 30-45 minutes Tuktuk ride from the airport to the guesthouse. Located at the heart of Phnom Penh City, it's walking distance to the Royal Palace,...

This is a fantastic hotel, my only complaint is I didn't stay longer. I was picked up from the airport and arrived at the hotel before check-in, no problem my room was ready. There was a bar fridge in the room, tv and lock box. The hotel is tucked away from the street so I found the room to be...

This is a really good place if you want to stay in Phnom Penh; very much accessible to all the attractions like the Silver Pagoda, Royal Palace, Silver Pagoda & Sisowath Quay. It is not located near the main thoroughfare, you still need to walk in a dodgy alley but it's not really a problem. I personally love the garden,...

We stayed in Alibi guesthouse for only one night. The staff was polite. They organized our boat trip to siem reap. We had a standard double room which might be a little bit small for a longer stay, but was ok for us. The rooms are clean. The bathroom was very tiny (the toilet is wet after showering). Our room...
