Visited Phnom Penh on a work vacation with my mom and stayed at Circa 51 one night. Staff were all extremely friendly and accommodating! We visited when the hotel was not busy and management offered us an upgrade on our room for a discounted price. We especially enjoyed meeting one of the staff members Sorya, and had an excellent breakfast...

Stayed for 5 days for work and a little r&r. Staff very friendly and very helpful in organizing a trip to the province. Great restaurant menu - recommend the chicken Masala. They also organise some unique things to see and do, which I will try on my return. Overall a great experience

We had a great time staying at this quirky, boutique hotel / guest house. It has a 60s style charm and the staff are very friendly and helpful... (Ask Sorya about the monkey dance!) I would come back for sure.

Stayed here for three weeks and loved it. A truly unique experience - a wonderful space in the middle of the city. An oasis in the city, fit for a Princess, girt by tortoises. To top it off the kindest, most accommodating staff. Do yourself a favour and try one of Brok's cocktails - the best Mai Tai ever -...

The Proprietor Rajiv gave us the blueprint not only to help us find our way around in a new city, but also to plan our next few days of travel. Our room was spacious and comfortable and we were upgraded at...

Circa 51 offers a pleasant stay in the heart of the city. As we arrived, we immediately felt welcome. The reception area, bar and pool are really nice and the rooms are spacious and nicely decorated. The devils is in the details however. The room wasn't really clean, neither were the towels. Some areas, such as the hallway or the...

A really pleasant, relaxed place to stay made even nicer by the charming Sererya and Rajiv and their lovely team. Rajiv has a policy of not welcoming (seedy) sex tourists, of which I was unaware but exceedingly grateful. Thank you for a very pleasant stay 'Mr Tom'.

We were so relieved to arrive at Circa 51 for the last leg of our trip. The staff were so inviting and throughout our stay, have continued to show warmth and fun. It's truly like walking into a distant family home. The hotel has charming rooms and feels reminiscent of the 1960's (so great!). The silk robes are a special...

We just stayed at Circa 51. The location is perfect to see everything there is to see in Phnom Penh : very central and close to areas full of restaurants, although it's very quiet at night. The place itself is very well kept, the rooms and bathrooms clean, spacious and decorated with taste. It would take very little to upscale...
