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 had an apt there too. I don't like their regular rooms - meh. I always get this one if I'm feeling flush: http://www.luxriversidehotels.com/room.php?id=12" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

$ 750 for a room that gives you serious depressions.

That's no apartment, that's a butcher shop.
Who is renting this kind of shit ?
Und der Haifisch der hat Tränen
Und die laufen vom Gesicht
Doch der Haifisch lebt im Wasser
So die Tränen sieht man nicht

In der Tiefe ist es einsam
Und so manche Träne fliesst
Und so kommt es dass das Wasser
In den Meeren salzig ist

Short term new arrivals like me a couple years ago. My apt didn't even look that good. IME Cambodians have a natural distaste for comfortable seating. It was however strategically located.

I find the hometown hotel on street 172 for $15/night ( $300/month) perfectly acceptable for my stays in PP for the last 5 years

Eating out for one is as cheap as eating ( if not cheaper) at home so dont need a kitchen for short stays

I dont need all the fancy shit

Nordic House on 136 is quite good and they'll go down to $11/day long term. Great breakfasts. LINK: http://www.nordic-cambodia.com/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Pardon me, but isn't the Walkabout hotel side a noted shithole now. I don't think they've renovated anything in years. All you have to do is look around the bar in daylight. Better seen at night through beer goggles. However, behind it on 174 is Blue Tongue, a very nice set of rooms. (No smoking though.)

Yea, OP, don't stay at a brothel in sleaze town. Look at Sundance Saloon on St 172. They got a pool. Great bar.
I'll give ya 500 Riel for it...

---- I agree, but the OP wants a balcony.

There's a little guest house on street 104 (now street "Seng Thuon" near the post office) called "Velkommen" guest house.

Owner is Swedish I guess. Very decent place, beautiful and tasteful rooms with locker, absolutely clean but not cheap (I guess $ 30 a night)
