lovely hotel with huge rooms
location
the hotel is on the river front with a rooftop riverfront bar which is popular with non residents and has a great view of the tonle sap river where meets the mekong river. the rooms in the hotel are beautiful with wooden floors, and long rooms which front the river. they have sofas and comfy chairs and a small balcony. the restaurant is a popular spot for locals and visitors as well as hotel guests and the food is good. the breakfast is excellent with a range of asian and western food to choose from. the hotel is a short hop from the royal palace and the silver pagoda, it will take about 5 minutes to walk to the adjacent wat.

Mekong Magic
Location, location and location
I normally stay in a business type serviced apartment in Phnom Penh when I'm here (3-4 times a year) while that's suitable for business, Phnom Penh is such a wonderful place I often think I only get a narrow experience of what's on offer. I decided the last couple of times to stay at Amanjaya and have never looked back. I tend to take the premium rooms because of the massive size and breezy, quieter feel and they face the side of the hotel not the front busy riverside street. The balcony is wonderful and I often sleep with the French doors open. I look over the oldest Buddhist monasteries in the Riverside area Wat Ounalom and where the Tonle Sap river meets the Mekong. Of course waking to the hundreds of locals enjoying aerobics while the sun rises is a not to be missed part of Cambodian life. the hotel is clean, there is a great roof top bar, and the biggest most tastefully decorated rooms I have ever had in the city. A little on the pricey side but ...I figure if you get caught up on price comparisons with western standards in a city like t his then you re spoiling your experience.

My favorite hotel in Phnom Penh
Feel and Location
The Amanjaya Hotel has large rooms with a Cambodian Colonial style. High ceilings and large doors opening onto a balcony. It gives one a feeling of pleasant openness. The location of the hotel is the best in Phnom Penh. They could update some of the furnishings but everything worked well and if they modernized it would loose some charm. The helpfulness of the staff is exceptional and has been consistent during my several stays there.

Room was large and service was very good.
Location, cleanliness, room size, river view.
Everything was as advertised and the reservation even included a new years eve dinner at the hotel restaurant. The restaurant service and food were good. Breakfast service at the hotel was also very good. This was a great stay in terms of room amenities, size, price. It also has a very nice rooftop bar, but tables are often pre reserved by non hotel guests.

Delightful small hotel in great location
Huge beautiful rooms
On the riverfront in the heart of the action. I could sit in my balcony watching local life and the monks coming out of the temple next door to collect alms. Very pleasant restaurant, great food and lovely rooftop bar. If you want lots of facilities and more peace not for you. All local staff could not have been more friendly and kind.

great location with huge rooms
location,location,location. huge rooms, with balcony. comfortable king size bed. big bathrooms with separate bath, separate shower and separate toilet.free (and fast)wifi.
the amanjaya is right on the waterfront in phnom penh,and within walking distance to all the sites, restaurants and bars in the waterfront area. it has a prime corner location, and from our room, a standard junior suite ( all rooms are suites in this hotel) we had views of the river and riverfront. our room had a large balcony, ( as do all rooms)with views both north and south, as well as overlooking the riverfront, and it was furnished with a large wooden table and two comfortable chairs, ideal to spend time having a 'sundowner' and watching all the activity in front of you,( and up and down the street) the room is huge, and nicely furnished, with comfortable king bed, a large sofa, and two large lounge chairs, and a large coffee table. there is also a large writing desk with chair. the bathroom is also very large, with a big comfortable separate bath, a separate shower stall and separate toilet room. the floors are all polished wooden floorboards which are very comfortable to walk on. the walls have lots of artwork on them, and as well there was a very tasteful sculptured bust ( of king jayavarman?) in the room atop the tv cabinet. the free wifi in the room ( and in public areas) worked a treat, and was both fast and reliable. the service, from the front desk,room service, restaurant etc, could not be faulted...it was friendly, polite and efficient. ( they even allowed us a late check out until 2pm, to suit our late-afternon flight) breakfast, which was included in room rate, is taken in the 'kwest brasserie bar' and is chosen from the alacarte menu, and was delicious. tea or coffee, fruit juice, fresh fruit, pastrys, bacon and eggs etc ( makes a nice change not to have a buffet!) for the price paid for this hotel i was extremely happy with everything, and would certainly recommend it to my friends ( and to you dear reader!)

stunning
location size of rooms
This is a fantastic hotel in Phom Penh. Full of old world charm and great service. The rooms are huge by all standards and I love the way they are decorated. The location is great for walking around and all the rooms have great views. Although its one of the most expensive hotels in town it really is a nice place to stay. Although the roof top 4th floor bar is a fantastic place to end your day make sure you are not staying on the third floor if you like to go to bed before midnight as I in the past i was kept awake by the sounds on feet on the roof above my head. This time I was on the second floor and it was great. Would be nice to have a pool but everything else is perfect.
