      Hotel not what it was advertises”

      Apparently hotel name has changed and now integrated with a convenient store on ground floor with rooms above. You walk through the convenient store and up the stairs to get to the room. Room was beyond basic with no complementary toiletry. Beddings were not done and doesn’t look like anyone stayed there in a long time. We stayed the one night as we were sick and slept most of it but RAN from it when we felt better. DO NOT rent this ad there as reasonably better deals in the city.

      Easy to pass over”

      1. For some reason, the owner decides that mini-mart is more profitable than hostel and cover the hostel sigh with mini-mart's which makes it easy to pass over the place. The sign said "Sunflower Market" rather than "Golden River Palace Guesthouse". I took me almost an hour just to find the place.

      Staff were very helpful. Helped with tuk tuk. Room I had had two big windows not with a great view but making the room bright and cheerful. Right across the street is the central market. I just booked one night but stayed another. Id recommend for a few nights. Alright for 17 bucks.

      Pretty central location, room ok but a bit dirty. ”

      This place is fairly cheap (although you can get more for the same price elsewhere) and the location is pretty good for the river, the heart of PP nightlife, the night market etc. The room wasn't very clean, some mould on the walls and ceiling, soap and hair from the previous guest in the bathroom, stains on the sheets etc but it wasn't too bad. Desk, kettle and lockable cabinet were a bonus that I haven't had in other similar priced places.

      to be honest dont be fooled by the cheap price or the convincing name! our room have no window. At least someone enjoyed them selvs there. Area is terrible it stinks but so does all of phnom phen its the skidmark of asia we only came to do the killing feilds, s21 prison and the shooting range this can all be done in one day for around 18 dollers. The receptionist couldnt speak english and was a nightmare to check in even after showing booking comfirmation still wanted cash! Wouldnt reccomend staying here

      Good for the price”

      It was cheap, close to the riverside and the staff were friendly

      It was one of the least expensive options in the area for a private room. It's by no means fancy, but I feel that for the money it was worth it. It's a bit run down, and the staff could be a little more vigilant when it come to cleanliness, but then it would probably be more expensive to stay there..

      Stay somewhere elase if you can”

      Good location not far from restaurant and tourist attractions. That's it.

      The list price on Agoda before the discount is 30 sth dollars which is way overpriced. Got the flash deal for $16. For the room conditon, i still think it's expensive. Couldn't sleep and got a bad allegy during the stay because of a bad air circulation. no window, dirty carpet, stuffy. Hot water didn't work. Hazy fuzzy television. The room sucked up my soul and gave an exhausted feeling. Thank god I stayed only one night. Should have chosen other places.

      Needs Cleaning and Renovation”

      Location, Price, Price

      The hotel and room need a renovation. The carpet doesn't seem clean and the room feels like it needs vacuuming. The bathroom toilet easily breaks down so be careful. However, the room is spacious and wifi connection is present in the room. The location is good as it is next to many eateries thought sometimes at night, road safety here seems questionable. There are many vehicles that pass this way and dim/soft lighting is present. During a flood there is no backup plan if you are trapped due to high water levels. You will be stuck inside the hotel due to the lower-leveled road and lack of drainage. Although the hotel staff smiles and is nice, they don't have anything to say other than I cannot exit due to flood. Tourists of other hotels at that time could be found roaming the streets easily.

      Friendly staff, comfortable, good location.

      The Golden River Palace is a stones throw away from the market where you can get all your daily needs, from food to clothes and even luxury items all at bargain price. Internet facilities including wifi available. Don't pay for the water as I did but remember to ask for your two free bottles per day at reception. Towels and clean sheets provided upon request although you may need to bring your own soap as the hotel ran out when I was there. All in all a good hotel, recommended. 3 stars from moi!

      Location, Friendly Staff & Decent Room

      The hotel was very well located in Phnom Penh. The daytime staff was excellent and very accommodating. I was having a problem finding a barber as you can only have a barbershop cut you hair in Phnom Penh. There were beauty salons everywhere but no barber so one of the staff took me on the motorbike and even offered to wait for me while I get a cut. I did have a couple of issues with the night staff one personal and the last night I came back and the hotel was locked. I had to wait 15 minutes at 1 am while someone went to find him. Be warned that if you go out you may be waiting outside if you return after 1 am, but if you pound on the door long enough one of the neighbors will go find the staff. I really did not like this because it also means that if you are inside and need to get out in an emergency you are locked in. Other than this my stay there was very pleasant.
