I have now stayed at Raffles Hotel Le Royal about four times over the past three years and every time it was a pleasure. The staff is attentive, the ambiance relaxing, and the location perfect for me as it is near the center of town. It is lightly renovated old hotel with furniture befitting of the era when it was...

I stayed here for two nights with my brother on vacation straight from a 4 night stay in Park Hyatt Siem Reap (which I loved). First impressions, the property was a very attractive classic colonial style, almost felt like you were stepping back in time. The original hotel was built in 1929 (the main building was, as there are four)...

You have got to visit this hotel, so stunningly beautiful. The Elephant bar is so relaxing, expensive but hey, just had to be done. Try the Singapore Slings, best to go during happy hour, 6-7 when we were there as they're $14 each. The bar snacks are delicious too. There is nothing about this place not to like.

Excellent, clean, well located property. Old charm and style meet outstanding food freshness and great service. Highly recommended. Gin and tonics at the elephant bar at the end of a working day are a reward worth indulging in.

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
