Like Being in Hawaii”

Great location on the river. Quiet and very good security. Got a one bedroom unit with a washer. It is like a full apartment with kitchen. So hot and humid that it was good to wash my clothes frequently. The breakfast buffet was outstanding. I felt very comfortable and relaxed here and the staff very very good and attentive. Would definitely stay here again.

Good facility, not so great staff”

We stayed for 11 days. The positives: 1)Breakfast was very, very good. Variety, tastiness, nice ambiance. 2)Location, with easy riverwalk and walking access to independence Monument. 3) Nice,open air lobby, which we preferred to the usual cold air conditioning of, say, The Cambodiana next door. 4) Good help in getting transportation. 5) Clean rooms. The negatives: 1)The manager lady, who tried to get us to move out of our suite to another just because one of three A/C units malfunctioned. She was very pushy, and it took a lot of pushback to get her to accept that we did not want to move, and we were fine with just two A/C units. 2) She was also obsessed with corona virus, and woke me from a nap one day to ask if I had a fever and needed to go to the hospital! 3) The key cards are very flaky for everyone. 2) Other staff spoke very little English.

Their rooms a d location really impressive but breakfast totally disaster. It is a luxury hotel but any 2 star hotel breakfast is far better than this. Only 2 types bread, few tasteless salad item which are did not try by any guests. Few curries were ok but they dont have many dishes to provide in Breakfast.

For this price range the hotel charges, it has a lot to improve! Good things: close to river and nice walking path, spacious pool with its beautiful surroundings, good WiFi; generous breakfasts. Things to improve: outdated decor and furniture; people shouldn’t have to order coffee at buffet breakfast; no usb outlets for chargers and power outlets are too far away from beds, noisy air conditioning.

On arrival, we had to have a fight with the manager. We had booked a Riverview room including breakfast for 2. They claimed they had a problem with Agoda and there was no confirmation of Riverview and Breakfast. We showed him the confirmation email but that was not good enough for him. He reckoned we had to call Agoda. I insisted he was the one with the problem and could call them. After some time he finally saw reason and provided what we paid for. The fridge was not plugged in and so was hot. Then we found the shower had no hot water. Save yourself the drama and stay elesehwere

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.

Pleasant Stay”

Room Size, location, friendly staff

Our stay at the Himawari Hotel was pleasant. Our vacation in Cambodia was split between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. We flew into Phnom Penh and spent the first two days of our 7 day vacation at the other Hotel on St. 57, then took the bus to Siem Reap (a 6 hour trip), stayed in a couple of different places during our stay there and then returned back to Phnom Penh via bus again for our return flight home. It was our last night in Phnom Penh that we stayed at the Himawari Hotel. I knew that we were going to be exhausted from our week-long adventure and wanted to stay at a hotel where I knew that the air conditioning worked, the room would be large and not have a claustrophobic feel to it and close to the river. The hotel did not disappoint me in these areas. If you stay at this hotel, the hotel waives the $7 per person admission fee on the riverboat cruise that is docked just outside the back of the hotel (you're still required to buy a drink or two though). My intension when I booked this hotel, was to spend our last evening eating dinner at the hotel restaurant and then take the riverboat cruise along the river to watch the sunset. However, by the time we arrived and this being our last night of our trip, we were exhausted from the heat and previous tours that we had taken and decided to take a tuk tuk (which the hotel called for us) to a pizza restaurant down the street. We ate our pizza, walked directly next store to grab an ice-cream cone for desert from Dairy Queen and then returned to the hotel to turn in early to bed since we had an early flight. The hotel reception was friendly and welcoming. We had requested and paid for an extra bed for our 12 yr. old son. The hotel did not have any record of us requesting an extra bed, we provided our agoda voucher as proof that we had paid for an extra bed and the check-in representative quickly updated their system and immediately arranged for an extra bed to be delivered to our room.
