Phnom Penh: a history lesson

A travel blog entry by bryanddave2013

We rented a taxi to drive us from Siem Riep to Phnom Penh, and it really was quite an experience. The journey isn’t actually that far, a little over 300km, but it took us close on 6 hours. The roads were not very good, and so that accounted for some of the time, but the the bulk spent the dodging motorbikes. Every time we passed a motorbike, …

We started off this morning with breakfast poolside at our little boutique hotel. In all cases, breakfast is included in the room rate. The menu has usually included juice of some kind -- maybe Tang, maybe fresh juice. This morning it was fresh passion fruit juice; a fruit plate with watermelon, pineapple, bananas, and maybe papaya, mango, or some …

Frokost ved bassengkanten er en veldig god start på dagen. Etter frokost gikk turen til Royal Palace, denne gangen korrekt antrukket. Selve Royal Palace er stengt i dag også, men vi kommer inn til Silver Pagoda – en nydelig utsmykket bygning i Kambodsjansk arkitektur. Inne i bygningen var det utstilt en smaragd-buddha, med mange mindre …

Phnom Penh (PP) - tuktuk, wat og marked

Hotellet vi bor på er virkelig en perle, en oase å komme tilbake til etter en svett og travel dag rundt i byen. Det ligger innenfor en høy mur og består av en herskaplig villa og rom som omkranser et lite basseng med palmer rundt. Ved bassenget er det et serveringssted der vi får frokost, og også lunch og middag hvis vi ønsker det. Frokosten var …

    An oasis amidst the madness

    Reviewed Mar 2, 2013

    The Pavilion Hotel in Phnom Penh is wonderful -- a little oasis amidst the madness of a large city. Tucked away across the street from a Buddhist Temple, the hotel is walled in and has a guard at the gate to ensure the safety and privacy of the guests. We think this hotel was once the home of a French diplomat (?). Our room is on the first floor, reasonably large with our own private patio -- except that it is too damn hot to enjoy. We have a REAL shower, although a hand held European-style shower head. The staff is very nice, although they have not learned our names like the staffs in all the Vietnamese Hotels we have stayed in. Everything is very clean. Breakfast is served poolside and consists of a large plate of fruit, bread, and eggs to your liking. As I write this, I am tucked away in a peaceful corner, under the palm trees, next to the pool. Today is our day of rest -- after a 90 minute massage, I have no desire to go out in the traffic, pollution, and madness. Each guest receives a complimentary 25 minute massage. I scheduled a 90 minute -- for $35. I would rate this hotel 5 stars except the bed is hard. I am convinced SE Asians have no clue what a comfortable bed should feel like. This isn't the worst we've slept in, but I am looking forward to returning to my pillow top mattress and box springs! Very satisfied with The Pavilion Hotel -- just wish the bed were a little cushier.

    En liten oase av ett hotell i en ellers travel by. Vi bodde inne i selve villaen, i andre etasje, med utsikt fra balkongen ned mot bassenget. Betjeningen var hyggelig og hjelpsomme, virkelig et sted å anbefale.

    The place is like a tropical oasis with many trees, a swimming pool, and lots of lounging cabanas. Our room has adequate space and balcony with a nice decor, Cambodia style.

    Service very friendly; and free breakfast included served by the pool area with lovely surroundings.

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Pavilion Phnom Penh

    An Oasis in Phnom Penh

    from

    The Pavilion is genuinely an oasis from the hustle and bustle of busy Phnom Penh. Step through the doors and you find yourself in a quiet, leafy garden surrounding a turquoise swimming pool with friendly local Cambodian staff to welcome you. Breakfast is served by the pool and consists of fresh croissants, orange juice and excellent coffee or tea.

    Fabulous Boutique Hotel

    from

    I have been traveling all over the world for over 13 years, and this is one of the best hotels I have stayed at. I researched carefully as I wanted to stay somewhere good value and with atmosphere. This hotel met my expectations on both counts. It is an old recently-renovated colonial mansion. It's only been opened 6 months, and everything is immaculate. The hotel interior is beautifully decorated. I think I had the best room in the hotel, with a balcony overlooking the swimming pool. Around the pool, there is a bar and lovely garden with plenty of chill out spaces. The French owners are very laid back, which helps to create a stress-free environment. The free internet and wi-fi is also a nice touch, attracting the local French expats - a laptop seems to be de rigueur in Phnom Phen! A tip - just around the corner on 240 St is a fantastic bakery called the Shop, with amazing juices, salads and sandwiches - recently voted best service in Phnom Phen. Make sure you check it out while staying at the Pavilion.

    Odd Looks from General Manager

    from

    After reading some good reviews of this hotel I (male from North America) stopped by with a Cambodian (male) friend to check it out as a place I might stay (alone). From what I could see the place is beautifully restored and decorated and is a real achievement. Although the local staff were very polite and friendly my friend and I both felt very uncomfortable talking with the General Manager who was at the front desk. He was far from welcoming and it seemed as though we were troubling him. My friend echoed my sentitments that the Manager seemed to give us a disapproving look over and was rather unfriendly. My immediate reaction was that despite the nice surroundings I would not stay at the Pavillion.

    The Pavilion is not to be missed!

    from

    Family owned hotel which is great value for money. Emailed the hotel direct via their website - if it's high season book well in advance. When you walk through the tiny gate in the high wall, you are greeted with the most beautiful tropical garden, swimming pool and immaculate French colonial building - the website doesn't lie! The staff are very friendly and eager to please (not overly so) and the service could not be faulted. The twin room we stayed in had no fridge to keep water cool but that didn't spoil our stay. Top marks for Tuk Tuk driver John who, for 12 bucks, drove us around all day to see the sites (he hangs out under the tree opposite the entrance to the hotel).

    Fantastic stay at the Pavillon

    from

    We really enjoyed our three nights stay at the Pavillon. I have been staying in almost each hotel in Phnom Penh hotel since I worked there 5 years ago and this is the best offer there is. The wonderful garden is the perfect place to get away from the street noise and chill out around the pool zipping on an exotic drink. Great crowd as well. Don't even read the bad review... this is bull chocolate.

    What a great place !

    from

    II have been staying here for two nights, what a wonderful place! The colonial architecture of the villa gives an incredible romantic atmosphere. The garden is definitely the best place to chill out in Phnom Penh.

    Excellent Value for the Price

    from

    We spent one night at the Pavillion and wished that we had more time to enjoy the pool. The decor at the Pavillion was much classier than I had expected given that it was only $50/ night for a twin room with two double beds. Though we didn't have a chance to stay for breakfast because we had to catch an early morning flight, we did grab a croissant each on the way out and they were delicious. The free internet at the lobby was extremely handy, especially if you need to make last minute travel arrangements.

    What an excellent oasis in the busy City!

    from

    I feel lucky to have found the Pavilion in Phnom Penh. I have read the poor review left for this botique hotel and believe it was an anomaly. I spoke extensively with the owner about Cambodian culture and the people there. He had nothing but respect for the people of Cambodia. I also saw him treat his Cambodian staff with upmost respect. I loved the wireless option outside by the pool, or at the bar that serves GREAT rustic French fare. Coq au vin, beef bourguignon! Come on! This is a must see property. I will return to PP early just for another night there.

    Charm of the Pavilion hotel

    from

    The hotel was recommended to me by a local NGO and was an excellent recommendation. The hotel itself is new - and relatively undiscovered so far but i doubt this will be the case for long. The hotel has comfortable rooms and excellent facilities, such as swimming pool and wifi connection, and a very charming lounge garden to relax in. The design of the hotel is based on the existing infrastructure, but adapted to Western tastes. Nevertheless the owners have a real eye for detail and are constantly trying to improve the place. The prices are ideal for the upmarket traveller or for business travellers. Nevertheless, the prices are extremely competitive and given the charm of the hotel, why would you want to stay at the more expensive resorts or hotels? Indeed, some of the guests i met had checked out, to stay at the Pavilion instead.
