My recent stay at Colonial Mansions was to say the least extremely disappointing. I have in the past been a long stay guest and for the most part very happy. Having stayed there I do know the layout of the property and surrounding environment. There is major construction in the immediate vicinity; hence I requested a room away from the construction area!
This was confirmed in writing along with the rate.
Upon my arrival there was no record of my booking, the rate or my request!
After a lengthy wait at reception I was escorted to quite possibly the noisiest room in the property. Being the middle of the day I was not overly concerned, but what a big mistake this was!
To my surprise the adjacent construction was a 24-hour operation and an unbelievably noisy one at that. Apart from the relentless noise the windows did not close properly and allowed the noise to penetrate very easily.
This was possibly the worst nights sleep (or lack of it) I have ever had.
I have brought this to the managements attention and have ignored me completely! Their silence is as deafening as the nearby construction noise and is completely unacceptable.
This construction will be ongoing for several years, in my opinion this property should be closed while the construction is ongoing, it really is unbearable. I will never stay there again.

... the horrors that happened here!
In another building, there were tiny cells separated by bricks haphazardly cemented where each detainee would be shackled inside.
Everyone who spent any time here was brutally tortured until death or death at the killing fields later. They were all presumably the 'enemy' and had 'western ideologies'.
The soldiers kept an extensive collection of photographs of each detainee during their detention and ...
... meaning different things. We had a nice but not exceptional lunch and then bussed to the Cambodian killing fields. That was a very emotional visit. Our guide told us about members of his family that were killed by Pol Pot of the Khmer Rouge. We saw the holes in the ground and pieces of clothing still laying around. They built a monument that houses all the skulls of those that died there. There were large holes where ...
... TOO much tequila! We learned our lesson eventually and stopped losing and buying shots. To be honest by this time it was all too late, all too hazy and I think I even may have been singing. Me singing is pretty much the end of the line so at 3am we left Howie’s in search of our hotel which was two blocks away. Thirty minutes later we admitted defeat and got in a tuk tuk that drove us to the hotel…a full 90 seconds’ ride ...
... the original cells were still there, including chains attached to the beds, and black and white photos on the wall of people who had lived in those cells. Blood stains could still be seen on the floor. It gives me chills just writing about this. Seeing both of these things in one day was not a happy travel experience, but I think it is necessary to visit these places in order to learn about what humans are truly capable of. In order for society to learn, prosper and ...
... to be in power at that time) who decided not dissimilarly to Hitler to 'cleanse' Cambodia. They wanted everyone to be equal so for example if you were educated, from a mixed background, religious or had any ailments even wearing glasses you were killed. If you weren't killed for one reason or another you were brain washed, starved and used as a slave. This all started as recent as 1974 - unbelievable. Anyway... we decided to get them both over with in one day.
