“Good hotel, great service, but....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 April 2012

I stayed 4 nights at the Le Safran La Suite Hotel and thought it was really nice when I arrived. The pool is small but clean and the hotel looked stylish, new and charming. The guys at the reception are very friendly, by welcoming and helpful. They organised me a bus and helped me with all questions and queries.
BUT: I booked the room for $38 per night, which is the lowest category they have. The rooms for $38 don't have windows!!! When I came into my room I thought it was only this room which had no window and asked to be moved to another room, however, all rooms in this category don't have windows upand unless you are willing to up the budget by $7 per night to get a room in the higher category this is what you get. I think $38 for a very minimalistic room with no window is a rather steep price.
Do not get your washing done at this hotel. I payed an astronomical price of almost $20 for a couple of t-shirts, some socks and underwear.... $20??? Really?
I do agree as well with a previous reviewer regarding the breakfast. It's just ok but really not great.

I did however very much enjoy the pool and the peacefulness of this place.

The hotel has a nice range of food and drinks in the restaurant but no cocktails - which would be nice around the pool ! The rooms in hospital white style capped minimalistic are spacious and bright ! The asset of this hotel is the staff which is not qualified but always smiling what makes my day ! Pool is small and clean !

We stayed at Le Safran for 10 nights (1 x 2, 2 x 4 nights) during our 3 week visit to Cambodia. The hotel is situated in a very quiet street but very close to the centre of the city - a short walk. We stayed in a deluxe room and the suite, both could not be faulted. The rooms are spacious, clean and have a fridge, tea/coffee making facilities as well as bathroom essentials and a safe and air conditioning. Bottled water was replenished each day. Breakfast is excellent, the bread was just like you get in France! There was a choice Omelets, boiled eggs, bacon, ham - plus fresgh fruit. There was also an Asian choice of Chicken Noodle soup - absolutely delicious! The staff at La Safran are extremely helpful and friendly. Sothira and her team at reception were always available to help with any queries we may have had. They organised transport for us on several occasions. We were able to leave luggage at the hotel whilst we were away for a few days at a time. In the middle of the day it was lovely to be able to come back to the swimming pool to cool off in. If we return to Phnom Penh we would not consider staying anywhere else but Le Safran. Thanks to the whole team for making our stay so pleasurable.

The rooms are well decorated, the atmosphere is quite, with a taste of Khmer art. Nice small swimming pool in the garden, very friendly service and excellent food. I stayed four nights and will certainly try to have a room in the same hotel when I return to Phnom Penh.
It is located close to the Monument of Independence and close to all centers of interest.

Room Tip: Standard and superior rooms are fine. The suite is very large, wonderful, if you can offer it, it...

I go to Phnom Penh quite often because my daughter works there. It is an excellent place to stay -- if you have the self-discipline to avoid eating too much of their great food. Le Safran is the restaurant and it can be busy on weekends because it is very popular with local residents. The boutique hotel has less than 20 rooms, no elevator, and is quite modestly priced. But it is much quieter than many hotels in that price range even though it is quite close to the Quay and the center of the city. Even with the small number of rooms it has a pool of excellent quality and large enough to enjoy. If you demand "action city" chose another place. But it you want a place to rest and chill after exploring Phnom Penh you can't do better at this price range.

Room Tip: Room 10 is very good value, totally quiet, and just one flight up.

We stayed here for two nights on our way out of the country. The AC unit in our first room was broken. After talking to the man at the front desk we were moved to a different room (they even helped us move our belongings). The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The wifi worked well. The pool looked very nice and clean though we didn't have a chance to use it. The breakfasts are more than one person can eat with a choice of tea, cappuccino or coffee, bread or croissant, eggs (omelet with meat or boiled eggs), a fruit plate, AND either dumplings or noodles. The eggs were a bit runny (both in the omelets and boiled) so if you don't like that you might want to ask for them well done but otherwise everything was delicious. Our flight didn't leave until late in the evening, they allowed us to store our bags during the day and then wait for a few hours in the lobby area. The hotel is centrally located and there are many tuk tuks available outside the gate.

Room Tip: Our driver had a difficult time finding the hotel when we first arrived so make sure you write down...
