Wireless internet not available in room at weekend

Location, comfort, swimming pool, happy hour, convenience
every thing about this hotel is good apart from the lack of wireless internet in the room. there is cable but this is no use for your ipad, phone or some laptops. the it guy will put a router in your room if he is around, but he was not around when i returned to the hotel at the weekend.
Restaurant Tip: Best restaurants near here in my opinion are around street 240

Best location in Phnom Penh

Location on the river
A comfortable hotel with good gardens on the riverside junction of the Tonle Sap and Mekong. Great during happy hour!
Restaurant Tip: Head inland to Street 240 for great restaurants

Lovely breakfast looking out on the river

View of the river, breakfast, swimming pool
Excellent place to relax and unwind in Phnom Penh. Not far to the Royal Palace and the Museum.
Restaurant Tip: The main riverside restaurants are not far away by tuc-tuc or by walking. Also near Street 240 area.

Fantastic swimming pool

Swimming pool
Nice hotel, but the real selling point is the swimming pool and gym.
Nightlife Tip: You can have a dinner trip on the river in a boat that moors at the end of the Himawari Garden

Comfortable hotel, but needs wireless in the rooms

Location, food, relaxation
excellent hotel but they really should provide a wireless network in the room as standard. my laptop computer does not have a network cable. anyway, when we told reception, they put a network router in our room... but if it had been the weekend, the it man would not have been there, so not so good.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Take river boat ride from the hotel gardens!
Feng L. Business travelers China, July 21, 2012
Great location good size room

great view on city and river, size of room is good too, friendly staff,
selection for breakfast could be improved, but it is O.K, will stay next time
Hotel Feature Tip: have a beer at the Oyster bar in the evening, by the river bank
Conrado F. Business travelers Spain, July 17, 2012
Good gym and pool, rooms are spacious

NIce pool, big rooms
Wish management would conduct customer service programs to the staff, a smile helps but its not always the solution to making a guest come back
Travel tip: No comment

Comfortable, well-run, nice location

Spacious suites, excellent service, good bedding, pool and outdoor area
have reviewed himawari previously but that was a year or more ago so here is an update. the location is out of the main tourist zone, quiet, right by the river, nice river views from many of the suites/rooms. agoda bookings seem to result in the less dramatic views but the suites are so good anyway how could you complain for the price? there are single room suites with small kitchenettes and a dining table, also one and two bedroom apartments if you are travelling with others. this is not a child-oriented hotel, nor is it a tourist fun palace. quite a few people live here fulltime. it is ideal for business people, older people and quiet people. the gym and pool are great for phnom penh - so many good hotels have no pool so it is something to be very grateful for. the breakfast has a lot of choices, a nod to chinese, japanese, indonesian and vietnamese and plenty of bacon and fresh cooked eggs to your order. cereals not so good, ran out of muesli on day 2 but you can enjoy plenty of fresh fruit and bakery items including baguettes, pastries and sometimes even dark rye bread. the hotel is increasingly being used for official meetings and evening parties but this usually is not annoying, however one day was given over to a very noisy event with awful loud singers and lots of kids. here are some small niggles: the saucepans in the kitchenette were the wrong size and one was completely unusable due to a deformed base which could not lie flat on the stovetop. there were no mugs for tea or coffee, only those really annoying small cups and saucer sets. the personal lighting on the bedside table was very dim - the lamps were ok but if you want to read in bed at night they could not be adjusted. the airconditioning seemed to get too cold and the level of airflow could not be adjusted down enough to make it comfortable to sit directly in it which made using the desk area almost impossible when it was on. small things but they undercut the otherwise high standards.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: If you have no car you will need to take tuk-tuks everywhere. You can walk from the hotel to the main restaurant and tourist area but it is a bit of a step. If you take a tuk-tuk the drivers are lately incredibly annoying. Many can't understand English (must be fresh in from the country as a few years ago most drivers were easy to talk to) and don't know where to take you unless it is somewhere they expect tourists to go, eg Tuol Sleng or the Russian Market. They will not give you proper change, so if you give them $5 you might be lucky to get a few rial back. You need exact dollar change wherever you go. There are now a few taxis around in Phnom Penh and they might offer better value but I haven't tried them yet.
