The Phnom Penh urban area counts an estimated 400 hotels, from large corporate chain of hotels to the small family-owned & run properties. This spectrum offers the visitor a very expansive choice of service and amenities. More hotels are scheduled to open within the coming months.
Though there are no real “hotel”or touristic district, where most of the hotels would gather around, it is fair to say that the riverside is the most sought-after area. In fact, it is also a very popular destination among the local communities, where they gather in the morning for their daily exercise and in the evening in search for some fresh air. So, this district is very active and somewhat energetic. This part of the city counts approximately 30 hotel properties, starting with the Cambodiana, one of the first hotel of its size in the capital, formerly managed by Sofitel, it is now an emblematic figures and a geographical point of reference, all the way to the Port of Phnom Penh, which should soon be dismantled.
Most of the hotels on this stretch of road, the Sisowath Quay, are relatively small 2-stars properties, offering rooms with a view at a low price of $30 to $50. They are in essence, up-graded guesthouses, with little amenities and basic services, yet offering a charming and human welcome.
If you have more taste and a genuine appreciation of quality hospitality, then your choice will shrink down to a few hotels, among which, the Amanjaya Pancam Suites hotel stands proud:
- Each and every room has been carefully crafted to offer an incomparable feeling of homeyness, balancing modern amenities with the richness of local products and materials, like raw silk from the Siem Reap province, crafted marble from the Kompang Cham area and high quality (yet legal) wood from the Mondolkiri mountains
- Amanjaya Pancam features two Food & Beverage outlets: the Kwest Brasserie, conveniently located on the ground floor of the 4-story high building, with direct access from the street and the highly popular rooftop lounge, named Le Moon, serving amazing cocktails all night long under the stars.
- Our staff have decent wages and benefits, like medical coverage, bonuses and meals. We believe in empowering our crew and guide them into making good career moves. They receive recurrent training on various aspect of the hospitality business, to ensure they give out the best service to every single guest.
- This 15-year old property is in full compliance with all aspects of the laws in the Kingdom, from labor laws to tax laws… We are very proud to contribute and participate in the development of the Kingdom through this commitment, though this has the negative effect of a price surge, compared with other similar properties not following the complete set of laws.
