This place is managed very well. All the staff (especially the lady at the front desk) were helpful and friendly, the rooms/building had a lot of character (old French), there are great places to sit and relax on balconies throughout, the breakfast was unreal (best we've had in SE Asia), quiet location but easy walk to most attractions, very clean...

Not easy to find, just up a tiny road and behind some large gates, open up into a lush green courtyard where you have breakfast. Old colonial house, rooms are very nice, would not recommend the top floor as very steep steps up. our aircon was not working well so we were quickly moved to another room with no fuss.... More

Our stay in Alibi Guesthouse was amazing. The building is beautiful, the staff is friendly and helpful and the room nice. They serve the breakfast in their nice front patio. Definitely the best decision in Phnom Penh. The last day when we checked out they let us to take a shower before our late plane. Thank you for everything. Owkong

There is not much I can add to the other reviews here. I found Alibi (pron Aleebee by the staff) to be a pleasant haven from the chaos and, um, grot of the streets and laneways. On arrival they offered me a choice of third floor room with a nice view but steep stairways, or a first floor room with... More

Had a great two night stay at this guesthouse. We had a Superior room on the 3rd floor which was nicely decorated, comfortable and clean. A bit of effort is required to carry luggage up to the 3rd floor, so maybe request a lower room if you aren't very fit. A/C and shower were great and we appreciated the fridge... More

I stayed here for 3 nights and the room was very nice, big and with all you need. The location is very good for visiting the National Museum and Palace, maybe a bit far from the Riverside eateries, but it is in a safe area so even at night you can walk back to the guesthouse. Breakfast is outside in... More
