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.

Stayed in 7 different hotels while on tour from Thailand through Cambodia to Vietnam and this was one of the best. Lovely large room packed with everything including a kitchen. Nice, friendly staff and a very good breakfast menu. Only wish we could have stayed longer.

Comfortable room, very friendly staff, nice breakfast, excellent location across from the U.S. Embassy. Would choose it again, without a doubt. My travel agent was able to negotiate a very reasonable price without sacrificing service or accommodations.

Briefly reading the latest travellers' reviews, I tend to agree with their comments & ratings. Yes, the hotel does need some modernisation but it delivers good value for money and is worthy of a TripAdvisor 4* review in our opinion.
