We were extremely disappointed as the room of Holiday Vila was not clean and and my female colleage did not feel safe at night. We travelled extensively in Vietnam and Cambodia, and this was the only place I felt unsafe. I would not recommend lone females stay here.
The majority of the client at the hotels are expats and older men looking for young Cambodian girlfriends. Despite telling them I wasn't interested the staff gave me a card for the hotel and told me to write my room number on it, so that I could give it to a girl.
Other low end hotels in SE Asia at least tell you not to bring prostitutes to your room, but this one seems to promote it.
At the lobby and bar was populated with a lot's males and much younger (& sometimes inebriated) Cambodian females. With few exceptions, the older males appeared to be 'paired up' with one of the younger Cambodian females.
Overall, I wouldn't go back to Holiday Villa. Although it was cheap per room per night, I don't want to stay in a hotel that allows women in prostitution and/or encourages the abuse of women via the heartbreaking sex-tourism industry in Cambodia.More
