Look for Your Taste and Budget
Before you rush to book your hotel, it’s quite necessary to ask yourself which part of Phnom Penh you would like to stay in? This is because the city is immensely huge, and each neighborhood has something different to offer according to the different tastes and budgets of the tourists. This helps you have an idea of what you want to do in Phnom Penh and what are your expectations from the Phnom Penh hotels in the city.
Here are some places that you can choose for your accommodation!
Riverside and Doun Penh
Usually, tourists as their first-time visitors choose to stay at Riverside and Doun Penh. The “Riverside” is a 1.5km portion of the waterfront between the Royal Palace and Night Market while the latter refers to a district that includes SangkatVoatPhnum and Sisowath Quay and is at walking distance from all the main attractions of the city. Here you can find some great budget Phnom Penh hotels or resorts that enjoy good ratings from international tourists.
If you are a shopaholic and love visiting cafes for refreshments, then Street 40 is the best place to stay there. It runs east-west between WatBotum Park and Independence Monument, along the southern wall of the Royal Palace. The place is well-known for its marvelous cafes and restaurants, the best shopping boutiques and hotels, laneway culture, and street art.
BKK1 is another best option while looking for Phnom Penh hotels to stay especially when you are coming with your family. Baitong– a sleek urban resort also resides right in the heart of BKK1. The building of Baitong is composed of its quintessential design elements around each corner and down every corridor that mesmerizes the tourists in the first glimpse.
Its unique architecture distinguishes it from other Phnom Penh hotels for it has vast lush gardens, clear and transparent ponds, cascading Jacuzzi, heightened but comfortable staircases, glass-bottomed pool and walkway, and other bold and amazing features that compels the tourists to stay here for long duration.
Our hotel’s building is not like other common hotels; rather it is made up of a mixture of materials such as rough stone, leather, unfinished wood, and metallic finishes that give you a feeling of industrial functionality.
