The staff are awesome. They are incredibly kind and helpful. They treated my son so very kindly. The hotel is in the "Riverside" area of Phnom Penh, so it was very convenient to sight see. However, while the price was reasonable, it wasn't great value. The bathroom could use a shower curtain or stall. We didn't receive any maid service...

After travelling in Vietnam for 4 weeks we had experienced a wide variety of hotels and didn't necessarily have the highest expectations regarding hotels. The golden river palace proved to be the worst hotel experience I have had for a long long time. The price at $30 per room is in no way justified. The staff service was non existent...

Thanks for your review. Honestly, I have never ever met customers from Europe like you. You called me to book a room with two KING size beds with the price of 30. When you came, I offered you superior deluxe TRIPLE room(45$) with the same price. You were so happy and also knew price. How come you did NOT you...

Pros - good location and friendly staff. Ok price Cons - room smelt of smoke. Room half tiled and then had a weird iron bar/prison type door. Bathroom and fridge in separate annex room. Carpeted floor. not that clean. Bathroom didn't appear to have been cleaned, there was what looked like a urine stain on toilet seat.

Staff did their best with limited English, but wouldn't recommend using their laundry service as they use an external service and forgot to pick ours up on time, which meant we had to pack wet clothes at 7am on the morning we left. The room was very yellow with tiles going half way up and a strange security gate between...

We stayed here for one night in may and we would recommend. The rooms are spacious, clean enough and a great location too. But to top that the staff were very accomodating too. We only stayed one night as we were moving on but we would return. The location is very good for visiting the killing fields and other tourist...

The Golden River Palace Guesthouse was a fairly basic hotel located near the river and Royal Palace in Phnom Penh. The room was decently sized and relatively clean, though the floor was dusty when we arrived. This is more of a backpacker accommodation, so nothing fancy there. The location is great to get to all the bars and restaurants on...

Paid £11 a night for double room with a/c. Arrived mid afternoon and was checked into room 001. The only room on ground floor. The view was into an alley and the room was very disappointing and nothing like the pictures displayed on hotels.com. The manager was not on site but we emailed him and explained we weren't happy: the...

We had received confirmation of our booking for two doubles rooms. When we arrived at the Golden River Palace Guesthouse in 35 degree heat after a full days travel from Chau Doc in Vietnam we were told the rooms were not available and they could send us to their "partner" hotel just around the corner for the same price.

Good location, infront of market, walking distance from bus station. We stayed Overnight. Aircon is good and wifi connection is fast. Drawback, no restaurant inside the hotel and no elevator. Not good for senior guest climbing upstairs. Although staff very helpful in carrying our luggages. Overall okey because the manager owner is very friendly, polite and offer help to check...

Rooms tiled to half way- strange decor in a bedroom- not sure it works. Rooms small. Air con, good. Bathroom good- modern, white and clean. Fridge good. TV reception sketchy. Location good.

“Do not accept a referral to another hotel. If you do check that the aircon works, doors close, noisy bars across the road and if the hotel is used for "other" purposes.”
