Sadly since my last visit here just over a year ago the situation at the Cara has continued to deteriorate. Of the nine hotels I stayed at during my recent two months stay in Cambodia this was next to the worst and while last year I rated it as average this time what I found here was poor - at...

A return to Cambodia after quite a few years absence. This was my first port of call and I left in a hurry. The architects brief when the place was built quite a few years ago was very obviously to pack the maximum units into a minimum of space. So a small lift, one staircase, very narrow corridors, small rooms...

I stayed there right at the end of September. This was my first trip to Cambodia. Hotel Cara's staff are quite friendly, the rooms are affordable and really nice. The food was really good too. It is a bit of a way outside the city center, which is fine if you want a peaceful getaway. Overall, good value for money.

Stayed here on our first visit a couple of year ago and revisited it again. The hotel has a nice frontage on the main road and rooms facing the front can be a bit noisy. Rooms are basic but clean. Not much of a neighbourhood to explore and taking a tuk-tuk is recommended. Breakfast is good and staff are courteous...

Stayed at the Cara Hotel during my first trip to Cambodia. The room was somewhat basic but very clean. The staff were, without exception, very polite and respectful and all spoke good English. Located on a busy made road made travelling by tuk-tuk easy. Only two mins away from the river.

We stayed at this hotel in April 2015, the reservation was done by our travel agent. We were a little taken back at the look of the front of the hotel, but inside the little lift worked, the room adequate, and the tuk tuk ride to the Riverside area a few dollars. The breakfast in the adjoining restaurant was fantastic....
