TravelPod Member ReviewsCentral Mansions Phnom Penh
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.

... felt familiar and yet new enough:) We bought food to cook in our new home so we won't spend as much on the restaurants here. Food we have found CAN BE a lot more than Thailand if you don't know where to go. The street food is not all our style either. But, today we happened upon the most amazing Chinese spot when on a walk-about around the hood to get acquainted. We saw a great picture of what we thought were SOUP DUMPLINGS hanging outside. We ...
... arriving in Phnom Penh. First impressions were mostly excitement at the wonderfully, refreshing designs of temples dotted everywhere. From being dropped off at the bus, we decided to enjoy our first tuk-tuk ride to the hostel! We got chatting to one guy, called DJ Camara, who was very friendly and we have decided to utilise his skills for a tour we're doing tomorrow. The hostel chosen seems really nice, with very comfy beds - looking forward to them far too much! We only had ...
... and quieter. We arrived Sihanoukville at 5pm. We met a chap from Yugoslavia who has been here for 14 years..on holiday. He showed us some places so we settled in at monkey Republic. Full of backpackers and a very English menu :) we went off to get our tickets for Koh Rong tomorrow, and then went to have some supper. It was too hot to do anything so we just sat and ...
... out the traffic. There was a lot going on. Lots of locals playing games and music. We climbed the stairs to the temple and took a look around. In the trees the heat wasn't too bad, but up top it was roasting. Temperatures were in the high 30's. We wandered in and around the temple. Locals still visit it to pray. We wandered down the other side and back round to head to the park. At the end of the park near ...
We awoke early doors, packed up and checked out and headed to the bus stop. We managed to get booked onto a bus for that afternoon so we had a couple of hours to burn and time to stretch our legs before our long bus journey that would take most of the day, around 8 hours 6 in total. We had seen a couple of cool temples so headed up there to have a look and grab a sandwich and a drink before our bus. The temple was one of many dotted around the city ...
