As is to be expected, this grande dame of luxe hotels , among the world's best, delivers on all counts. Service and food quality are of superlative standards. Gracious living with old world courtesy make this place highly recommendable. I did not stay but had lunch in the restaurant.

We enjoyed a nice relaxing lunch poolside when we arrived. It's surrounded by gardens and is a nice respite from the city around the...

The hotel has seen grander days and requires a major renovation. While the garden surrounding the hotel is very tranquil and relaxing, there are several quirks: . Access to the gym will require a passage through the toilets which is not the most inviting ambiance before and after your workout . Swimming pool is nice and blue in the morning...

This is a very well looked after old colonial hotel with an amazing charme and many well preserved details - the hotel has a great history as well. Rooms are very sizeable and furnished classic - even I'm a very contemporary guy the atmosphere in those rooms is wonderful. Service friendly and appropriate.

Amidst a city that is so corrupt and impoverish, I was so lucky to have found this oasis. A throwback to colonialism this place is so tranquil and lovely.Everything here reminds me of British colonialism...from the light switches to the pool.

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
