Sunway Phnom Penh

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

The hotel

Sometimes it’s all about location. And Sunway Hotel has that covered for your stay in Phnom Penh. Just around the corner from the iconic Wat Phnom Pagoda, with its incredible craftsmanship, this central hotel’s also just a stroll from Tonle Sap River and the buzz of Phnom Penh Night Market, and a 15-minute walk from Central Market. When you’re not browsing the city’s market stalls, a quick taxi ride takes you to must-see sights like Wat Ounalom, Silver Pagoda and National Museum. Before heading out, you can grab pastries from the hotel’s Deli Shop; and when you return, you can dine on International and Cambodian dishes at Sun Café, or head to The Lobby Lounge for oven-baked pizza, a game of pool, and whatever sport’s playing on the screen.

I stayed here at the start of a tour of Cambodia and Vietnam. Good location, rooms OK, breakfast good. My only complaint that there is no where to relax and chill. Few of the rooms have balconies, and the public areas tend to be rather formal.

I only stayed in this hotel for a night. The staff is friendly and helpful. I have simple rice and fish noodles for dinner in the hotel and it's delicious. The breakfast was good. Hope to return here for a longer stay and explore the near amenities.

This hotel is an easy walk to the river..be careful crossing the street! The old school decor is dated, but very clean. The front desk staff was pleasant and helpful. The rooms were spacious and the breakfast buffet was very good. we felt comfortable and safe.

We stayed here as part of our tour group. The hotel is just across the US Embassy. Hotel staff are friendly and we were served welcome drink during our stay. The room is quite dated but its clean. The only downside is the bed, i felt the bed is too soft for me. The breakfast buffet spread is good, lots of varieties (Asian and Western selection)

A good hotel for a few nights stay. The room was big with working air conditioning and a good bathroom. The Wi-fi was fast and didn’t go off as happens in some Cambodian hotels. It was very clean. There was a good selection of food at breakfast and plenty of room to sit. A troop of monkeys kept us entertained at breakfast just outside the window.… Read more

Not much character but nothing to complain about. Read less
