About Circa 51 Boutique Residence


Set in the heart of Phnom Penh, all the stylish and luxurious rooms provide intimate experience within the comfortable environment. All eight rooms of this property are well appointed with a mix of modern and art-deco inspired pieces maintaining the original style of the building. In addition to the original elements, the modern touch includes a saltwater swimming pool, a lovely tropical garden of coconut palms, bamboo, banana, and mango trees, and an enormous old banyan tree keeping you close to nature all day long. A perfect way to end any day would be the fantastic foot massages where guests can request it by the pool or in your luxurious bedrooms.

Great spot
Great spot with a friendly, easy going home stay feel. The rooms are good. We changed our initial room as a larger one was available for an extra USD$15 which offered a balcony overlooking the pool. The staff were very helpful and very friendly. A great breakfast..omelette was huge so 2 pieces of toast needed if you order it. The area is very convenient with good restaurants nearby. The Magnolia Vietnamese restaurant only 100mtrs down Pasteur (51 Street) from Circa 51 is excellent. After 10-10:30pm it gets quiet on the street, but there are still small street food vendors where you can get a late night meal of BBQ pork ribs and rice for USD$3. Airport ride cost USD$9 (fixed) and took about 1hr due to afterwork traffic. The Tuk-tuks from outside the Circa cost USD$8 to the Airport. Around town you will probably pay USD$3-4 depending on where you are going and more importantly time of day. Always pay a little more at night. I would definitely stay there again.

Nice place in need of TLC
This is place is in a great location, the staff are really helpful, and it's reasonable value. However, it does need a little bit of TLC on the maintenance and gardening front, as well as spraying for mosquitos in and out of the bedrooms.

High price for not a great hotel
I stayed for two days on 17 and 18 June . The hotel has a long history and so it was built long time ago. Very highly priced for lousy rooms. For half the cost I got a better hotel at much better place in Phnom Penh,which was more neat and spacious called rs guest house. Avoid this circa 51 hotel. Regret to inform, agoda priced high for me.

Unprofessional standards
Soriya, pool, shower
This guest house lacks polish. The paint is peeling, the mosquitoes are buzzing, the towels are ragged. The folks who run it are gracious and helpful in arranging transportation and referrals, for a fee. We were glad to leave.

Friendly, beautiful, nice hotel
Great room, wonderful pool, good food
I was quite ill when I arrived and so was grateful for staff looking after me. The rooms are fantastically big and roomy, I love the pool area, and I swear it was the best water pressure in Cambodia in the shower! Super strong and hot :)

Spacious room which is good for family
Location and price
Good location that is walkable to attractions such as royal palace etc and the room is reasonaby priced. Ideal for family holiday as the room came with an extra single bed.

Saved us
Large room, great location, good coffee
Arrived in the csmbodian New year and found we could not get a bus. They managed to get us a bus where most others failed. Got us a tour of the killing fields and basically made our time there relaxed and enjoyable.

small and friendly oasis
great locality but still quiet and safe. Friendly staff who will help arrange transport and day trips. The pool was wonderful to use at the end of a busy day.
Enjoyed our three nights at Circa 51. All the staff are very friendly and helpful. Really nice breakfast was included and we enjoyed eating outside next to the pool. Our room was larger than I expected and very clean. Circa is surrounded by big walls which keeps alot of the city noise outside and adds to the security. The pool was fantastic and a great place to head to after a big day out. Good central location. Happy to recommend.
