Accommodation Recommendation

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I think you're right. For $50 you can get something way better in BKK than PP. Hard to find anything anywhere near as good as Lone Star for $25 in BKK though.

those crappy shophouses don't allow enough size for a decent room.
some of the ones in the $15 range are bigger and nicer than those going for $30

So die Tränen sieht man nicht

Und so manche Träne fliesst
Und so kommt es dass das Wasser

Nope, too many bacteria on it and too many viruses in it.

For $50 and up the Lux Appartments and Hotel on 136 st have nice rooms and include breakfast and wifi. I had an appartment there before moving to Chroy Changvar a couple of years ago.
