An oasis in Pnomh Phen
Lovely pool and friendly staff
this was our second stay at the 252 and once again iwe found an oasis amongst the city and the heat. the decor is simple but fresh and the pool is a delight. the staff is friendly and efficient, all in all a very nice experience though breakfast was a big disappointment, especially after so many splendid breakfast buffets in asia, an effort is sorely needed!

Very pretty hotel with pleasant, helpful staff
Comfortable, large room; the swimming pool , altho' smallish, is in a very pretty setting with comfy seating alcoves; exceptionally helpful and pleasant staff.
We stayed for 2 nights. The staff were extremely helpful with local information. A minor issue with our room (shower fixing broken) was sorted immediately. The swimming pool was welcome respite from the heat from the heat of the day and breakfast was good. Although not as close to the riverside area as some other PP hotels it is possible to walk if you don't want to take a tuk tuk. All in all a very pleasant place to stay.

Stylish clean rooms, nice pool
Nice rooms, very clean, great bathroom, quiet
hotel 252 is a very good choice in phnom penh. although the location is not very close to the river front, it is easy to get there by tuk-tuk. there are always tuk-tuk drivers waiting in front of the hotel. service and the included breakfast were very good with excellent freshly brewed coffee. we wouldn't recommend the other meals there. we had dinner once and it was overpriced and poorly made. we would stay there again.

252 Hotel is Paradise in the city
Breakfast and message besides swimming pool
We have early check in and late check out by request. The staff are nice. Nice hotel with very nice oil message just beside the pool. Although it's not a luxury hotel. But, it's pretty enough to have a relaxing in Phom Phen in this reasonable price.

A Poolside Oasis in the City
Cabanas and Outdoor Bar Restaurant
This hotel is perfect as a place to unwind and dive into the pool to cool down after a hot day in Phnom Penh. It is also private enough and quiet enough to just spend half a day sitting around reading and chatting in the shade of the small cabanas if that's what you feel like doing. One warning for swimmers is that the hotel gets to watch you as the pool is very much a focal point, but the nice thing during our stay is that although the pool is small the small size of the hotel meant it was never busy.
