      Comfortable and value for money”
      It is not easy to find a reasonable price for a hotel that have a room with triple bed and here we have it in Essence Hotel. Our room is a corner room (nice view and bright) and can easily asses of sunlight especially afternoon that will heating up the room. Air-conditioner have to take longer time to make the room cooler. The bath room have a window / a wall of glass that make the sunlight happily shining in through even they have blind to block it, the floor is warm too. If they can tinted all the glasses / window i believe it will help to reduce the heat. You may request a "Not" corner room if you are very particular on warm. The staffs are very helpful and their service is good. Breakfast is consider good to us. We had our dinner at MOON Pizza Bar (at Rooftop) and it's tasted good to us too. Overall, I will say that Essence Hotel is a worth to stay place.

      We stayed in a 2-bedroom apartment”
      Very good facility; air conditioner working well, 3 flat screen TVs, beds are very comfy, bathroom modern design, WIFI ok, about 30 Mbps. The bathroom water drainage blocked, I clean it myself with the toothbrush provided. We really enjoyed the buffet breakfast provided; many choices, it’s a full range buffet and a coffee maker (grind from coffee bean) is provided =) In term of house keeping, we only request 2 things to do; clean the garbage and provide us new mineral water, anyhow, the services still can be improved. The swimming pool on 13th floor is very nice, my children went there everyday. The pool and bar as nice as in the pictures. Very good PP city view from the rooftop. Location consider ok, 10 minutes walk to Orrusey Market, 15 minutes walk to Central Market/Sorya Mall, 20 minutes walk to Royal Palace/Riverside. Many Tuk-Tuk waiting in front the hotel. I recommend to use PassApps for cheaper transfer service.

      Good value in the location”
      More of a good value option than a truly memorable stay. But bear in mind I haven’t stayed elsewhere in Phnom Penh, it is just that I found more personal / individual places in other towns. The Essence has good size rooms (apartment), reasonable pool area on the roof for a midrange city hotel and is easy to get to the main city centre places. So if this place looks like good value for when you are booking, go for it.

      Pretty modern hotel. Location is 15 minutes walk to Royal Palace and riverside. Room was modern and clean. Big TV with many channels. Towel, bath robe and toileteries including tooth brush, hot water, safety box and house slippers are provided. Wifi is almost useless in room. Had problem with aircond, they fixed it second time I told them about it. Breakfast was great with many variety. Gym and pool is in the rooftop but so is the bar restaurant. People eating will stare as you work out or swim. Overall an okay stay.

      Great hotel. Affordable price. Good location. Best service-minded staff.”
      Pro: Great place to stay. My room was very comfortable and clean. Staff (every department) did everything they can to assist me. Location is good; within (a long) walking distance to most attractions, but taking Tuk-Tuk is also a good idea. I love to walk, but not in the heat of the sun during my stay. Breakfast was adequate. They also have great pizza & cocktails at Moon Pizza Bar on the rooftop. Con: Not much, actually. My complaint is that I asked, in advance, for a room with good view. They replied back to me that they already reserved a room on a higher floor and with balcony so I could enjoy sunset view. I didn't get both. Disappointed, but staff did everything to make it up for me. BTW, the 'hot' water in the shower was just a bit warmer than the 'cold' one.

      Nice Rooftop Bar”
      With breakfast come in compliment, they served pretty good breakfast buffet considering their pricing. Rooftop bar gives a good view of Phnom Penh City, with a swimming pool and gym. Location is wise when major attractions can be accessed by Grab, Grab Tuk Tuk and their local PassApp. Do note that local Tuk Tuk that not yet joined ride hailing programs are quite against the Grab and PassApp. So, stay low when picking up Grab.

      A large and clean, if somewhat impersonal hotel”
      This hotel is a bit further from most of the city than you will walk from, but that is not a major problem. The rooms are clean, and the hotel has a nice rooftop pool area and bar (if small and strangely empty when I was there). There is just something missing from the place in a sea of places with more personality

      Stayed there again because of my the nice experience of my last stay in July. Yes, the hotel is not too close to the riverside, but instead of having many mosquitos around the river side I didn't see any mosquito in this hotel! If you go by Tuk-Tuk you only need few minutes to go there. It will cost you maximum 2$ for a ride to the riverside.

      Loved this place. Great staff, the breakfast was actually pretty good. The restaurant on the roof was great too. Very quiet rooms and pretty nice bed. The only negative was that during the day they only have like 5 sun chairs to use at the pool. The rest is all the table seating for the restaurant. Also be aware that at night the whole pool area is turned into restaurant. Made it kinda weird one evening when I felt like going for a night swim, you are swimming in between all these families and people having dinner. Other than that, great value, location and staff!

      The beds are phantastic, no insects in the room with good working silent aircon. Friendly staff. The breakfast is a buffet and it was very very good! The parking for the motorcycles is in the opposite garage of the Luxury Hotel. The swimming pool is nice but in the evening there are tables where people will have dinner. So theoretically you can swim until 10pm, but... it wouldn't be nice to do that while other people are dining. All over a very impressive hotel.
