This hotel gets a lot of positive reviews for great value for money. Room charge is relatively inexpensive, but all the rooms are clean and well-lit.
Wonderful points of the hotel are not only price, but also their thoughtful services.
For example, souvenir shop is located adjacent to the front desk. The shop sells many kinds of goods produced in Cambodia. Jam from organic fruits, soap from Kampot Pepper, hand-made backpack…All attractive goods are displayed beautifully, and prices are inexpensive.
To buy goods in the store is to contribute to Cambodian people, as some of goods are not from big foreign companies, but from local farmers in Cambodia.
The owner of the hotel is seems to emphasize a productive relationship with local society of Cambodia. To contribute to the local society makes both buyers and sellers happier.
