Greeted with the most decadent and beautiful lobby, this hotel really takes elegance and service to the next level. Appointed your own personal butler upon check-in, there is no task too big or too small. Realising we were tight for time to do the sightseeing trips, there was a private taxi waiting outside to escort us around all afternoon within...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 13 February 2017

The rooms vary from small comfortable to large suites, from rooms in the modern wing to suites in the original building. Prices also vary accordingly. Service is excellent. Breakfast is served in the Cafe- an ample buffet with western and eastern offerings. The same cafe offers dinner- again a buffet. We preferred dinner in the Le Royal restaurant, which offers...

This was my fourth stay at Raffles. It is a beautiful, charming property. It is an older, historical colonial style hotel. Elephant Bar: absolutely wonderful staff & delicious drinks in a beautiful setting. Stayed at the hotel for 5 days, unfortunately the food was not always consistent, some of the sauces and plating varied from day to day. Concierge desk:...

Elegant, grand hotel which was an absolute joy to stay in. The concierge team were extremely helpful, as were all other members of staff.

We stayed for 3 nights in November in the newer building at the back in a state room overlooking the pool, don't let the phrase 'newer' put you off the room was absolutely in keeping with the rest of the hotel and retained all the colonial charm, especially so in the corridors with the beautiful tiled floors and old telephone's....

The hotel is well located and comes with a colonial feel. It is situated in the business area and near the American Embassy but also near many sights. We arrived late afternoon and hit the rush hour from the airport so the journey took about 50 minutes but was much quicker returning. The hotel has several restaurants and we chose...

Raffles Hotel, a classic of the East should not disappoint, but it does. The staff are attentive and considerate and the public areas grand but that is where it ends. The famous Elephant bar can only be enjoyed when the pianist is not thumping out a tune. Buffet breakfast is quite ordinary and would benefit hugely from a decent barista....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A history of hospitality. The luxury of time. The secret charm of Cambodia. One of Asia's essential destination hotels, Raffles Phnom Penh has been the iconic resting place for the well travelled since 1929. Located in the heart of vibrant Phnom Penh, our hotel has been part of the history of the city and welcomes, as it has always done, a diverse clientele of entrepreneurs, writers, journalists, royalty and intrepid travellers from across the globe. Rooms and suites have been respectfully restored to reflect a distinguished blend of Khmer, Art Deco and French colonial architecture. Dining is an essential part of the Phnom Penh experience. In keeping with history and a sense of place, the elegant Le Royal Restaurant serves modern French cuisine and Royal Khmer cuisine with original recipes graciously gifted to Raffles from the Royal Palace. Almost as famous as the hotel itself, is the Elephant Bar where local residents and visitors alike gather over wine, whisky and cocktails. The Raffles Spa offers relaxation, rejuvenation and fitness through a considered mix of local and classic treatments, gym and spa pool. Complete your visit to Cambodia with a stay at our sister hotel Raffles Grand Hotel d'Angkor, a great hotel of the legendary Grand Tour of Indochina and virtually at the doorstep of the Angkor UNESCO World Heritage site. ... more   less
