Oasis in a bustling city w/ a personable experienc
Staff & guests, food, pool
I spent 2-days at some hotel and 2-nights at 252, next time I'll be staying at 252 exclusively. While they're two completely different experiences, nothing can beat the vibe cultivated at 252 by the owner and his guests. As a female, solo traveler I was looking for a hotel that was comfortable, I felt safe in and would provide personal recommendations. I got both of those and so much more. as a longtime resident of Phnom Penh his recommendations allowed me to experience both the touristy and every day life of the city. Knowing I was traveling alone, he invited me out with a group of other guests for a night of drinks and dancing, he even taught a few photography tips. A lot of guests were in Cambodia doing philanthropic work and had such inspiring stories, each with a unique point of view. The owner is doing great things for the city in his own ways as well giving me even more of a reason to stay. Needless to say, I'd highly recommend this spot. Outside of the ambiance, the rooms themselves are spacious (I booked a deluxe pool view room), clean and a good value. The pool is awesome and the food at the bar delish. Great happy hour specials.

Great first stay in Cambodia
Staff, Pool and large rooms
We stayed for two nights after getting the bus from Saigon and before going on to Siem Reap the hotel isnt in the tourist centre but there are tuk-tuks outside who will take you anywhere in town for a few dollars. The hotel itself is a peaceful oasis in the hectic city with a nice pool and bar. The rooms are large and comfortable, the furnishings are a little weird concrete tables and shelves but they are spotlessly clean. We stayed in the cheaper rooms next to reception and did have a number of mosquitos in the room after it had been cleaned which we spent a bit of time hunting and killing each evening, maybe an idea to upgrade to the better rooms or just check for mosquitos before bed.

A tranquil hideaway.
A peaceful oasis away from the crowds and bustle of the city.
Very nice place. It was nice to get into the city and then come back to a quiet place where we could relax, especially after a long flight.

budget boutique hotel in city center
location,clean room and cheap
air con was 1 HP type. With fan on OK. This is a budget boutique type hotel in city center.More like a old mansion convert to hotel. Pool is the central attraction for tourist but not business traveler like me. Breakfast was very very simple. Room shelf was build by cement. Only shampoo and bath gel, no other amenities. No really for business but the location except the location is good.

Budget, mostly European customers
city center, cheap and simple
For Business traveler who do not use the pool and other facilities, what a waste. This hotel only provide shampoo and shower gel. For Cheap European traveler who just want to dip in the pool, cheap room rate will e great. But no so suitable for business traveler.(power trip for 3-4 occasion in the evening, although short period of time but still no a good experience.

Great experience with good environment
Cleanliness, Superb breakfast, helpful staff
Overall experience was great. Room is comfortable even with 4 person occupying a triple room. Helpful and attentive staff. Superb breakfast even though with limited menu choices. Getting around the city will not be convenient if you do not engage a guided van.
