        Stayed 1 night in September 2017
        Good stay, still no breakfast though”
        I arrived at the hotel at 2am, after a long journey from Vietnam. I've stayed here on a number of occasions and the room standard is still good, the room was clean but the hot water takes a while to come on, probably because the hotel uses a solar hot water system. The night shift guy, who spoke remarkable English didn't give me a wifi password. I was too tired to use the wifi at that time anyway and could have requested it in the morning but had to get going quite early so didn't bother. I found that the hotel has increased it's rates so it's not really great value for money anymore. US$53 for a standard room is way overpriced, a similar room in Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville, Siem Reap or anywhere in Thailand can be found for barely half this price and invariably includes breakfast, which this hotel doesn't. However, other options in town are either low quality backpackerish or overpriced and far away (like the places near the Tatai waterfall and the casino at the border). There is still no breakfast, though a new coffee shop has opened up on the hotel premises next to the car park. The large mugs of hot drinks (hot chocolate, coffee and tea) are absolutely huge and go for just $3! Be careful when ordering a waffle though, because you might receive a mug of hot chocolate instead, even after making it clear 10 times that you want a chocolate waffle (or just any waffle) and this is after already ordering a cup of coffee. Service is also a bit slow.

        Nice riverside hotel”
        This was my third stay at the Koh Kong Bay Hotel. To my surprise, we were put up in one of the rooms located in a separate building from the main one, but upon entering the room realized it was much more spacious than the rooms in the main building. The room contained a large bed, sofa, coffee table and space for working. TV channel contained many interesting channels, including one surprising one from India! The room was quite clean and the hot water worked well. Unfortunately, as with my last trip there was still no breakfast on this occasion; hopefully it will be included in the near future. There is a lot of potential for this hotel and for that matter, other hotels in town. However, for now this is still the best place to stay in town itself, though there are a couple of luxury options near Tatai, which are quite isolated as they are both at least 20km away from Koh Kong city.

        Nice riverside hotel ”
        Room comfort, staff performance, location
        This was my second stay at this hotel but the first time for my family. We arrived by car from Thailand in the afternoon and stayed for 3 nights. On our first night, we were the only guests who stayed but on the next two nights plenty of rooms were occupied, mainly by western travelers but also at least one Phnom Penh based expat and his driver. Check-in was quick and efficient, we were quickly shown to our room. We booked the family room, which is the biggest room in the hotel, consisting of one main room with queen bed, TV, sofa, desk, closet and fridge and a bedroom with 2 twin beds and the bathroom. There is also a balcony running the width of the room with seating outside. Hot water worked but since it's a solar system I suspect it would be cold on cloudy days or in the early morning sometimes, if it hasn't received enough sunlight the previous day. Unfortunately, no breakfast was served since they are apparently renovating the breakfast room and poolside bar. However, we would find that few other hotels in town serve breakfast either. This was a disappointment and could be an inconvenience for guests who like to have breakfast at their hotel before going out or guests who have booked an early morning tour who then have to find a place to eat outside. This hotel has potential but in order to lift it's game it needs to offer a proper buffet or good ala carte breakfast, open a riverside restaurant, re-open the pool bar or otherwise perhaps reduce the price of their rooms. Our room was about the same price as two separate standard rooms and for this money in Thailand one can find far better value. Instead of A$80 a night (US$52) for the family room it should be about A$50-60 or US$30-35 at most. Standard rooms listed at US$27 at the hotel or A$40 should be about US$18 or A$30 or so, especially since they don't come with breakfast.

        cleanliness, friendly staff
        We were a group of 3 friends and stayed for 3 nights. Service was excellent and rooms extremely clean and tidy. Rooms are new and decorated with taste, quite luminous. Staff are very friendy and helpful (both reception and bar). The only cons (if I really have to find them) is that breakfst is not included in the price and that the rooms advertised as viewing the garden are facing the road (although in Koh kong there is not really much traffic...). Position is ok and closed by there are little shops and internet point closing quite late (around 10 pm)

        Don't believe the photos/video”
        I went to stay at Koh Kong Bay Hotel for three nights and had two rooms rented for my stay. Upon arrival we were given keys to the rooms and asked (as it states on the website and if you call in) if they could help set us up for any tours of the region or a hike or whatever the region has to offer. They could not. They didn't have anywhere to send us, we were on our own to find places to go and places to discover. As we made our way to the rooms: Room #1's patio door wouldn't close. Room #2's air conditioner wasn't functioning. The staff were good and promptly gave us new rooms. The photos/video on the website, I can't emphasize enough are completely ridiculous. Not even close to accurate. The building is in complete disrepair and the video must have been done when the building was brand new (20ish, 30ish years ago?) or photo shopped by an absolute professional. On top of this, pictures don't pick up smell and illumination in the rooms. The smell that came from the drain in the bathroom, and the water, was something that you had to get used to. The lighting in the room is so horrible you can barely see anything in certain area's and in others overwhelmingly bright with the pot lights that exist in the ceiling. There are no bed lights, so if you want to go to bed you have to get up and turn the lights off at the front door. On top of everything else there is construction. Every single day we all literally had a construction worker on our balcony. Step out of the shower, there's the construction worker on the balcony. Wake up from sleep, construction worker. All day there were construction workers on our unusable balcony. Not only inconvenient but creepy to constantly have a peeping Tom at your window. So what was positive? The staff are very pleasant, as are most Khmer. The bed was actually comfortable to sleep in. The shower had hot water (which in Cambodia isn't a sure thing). The room, for the most part, was clean. Found a few area's that weren't the cleanest

        Location is good near market and restaurant we can enjoy during night time. However, it was bad luck on the day we stayed, the water was cut off for nearly a night.

        Not worth the money ”
        We had the big room it's quite nice but worn out and not worth the money. The aircon was way to small for the big room, curtains were risen etc. The City is a dirt whole just dust roads no nice restaurants or any shops. Dishes in eatable restaurants where 260 baht what you might not even have to pay in a deluxe hotel in Thailand. There is a sea/river front but only with dirty street food shops and chairs in the darkness. There are nice nature sides that you can do day or two day trips to. But being back to this dirty city in the evening just makes you not enjoy the time. We were at the island it's very nice but no resorts there anymore so you have to sit 4 hours on a long tail boat to go there and back So if you are a backpacker who likes to stay in dirty 7 dollars rooms, eat street food, staying in a dirty city in the evening so you can say you where in a non touristic authentic Cambodian surrounding. Koh kong is the right place for you.

        Best hotel in town but no breakfast”
        This is the review for the second room in my booking. This was actually my 4th stay at this hotel (not 3rd as I mentioned in the other review) and as mentioned already, the door to the standard room was difficult to open and close. While both rooms were functional, they were not outstanding either. The lack of breakfast is a sore point, but otherwise this is still the best hotel inside town itself. Just a short 1 min walk away is Café Laurent, an excellent French-Cambodian-Thai restaurant next to the river open daily except Tuesdays. Plenty of breakfast options are located within a 5 minute walk from the hotel but this may inconvenience guests heading on an early morning boat ride to Koh Kong island or catching an onward bus to Sihanoukville or Phnom Penh.

        Best hotel in town but no breakfast ”
        I've stayed here twice before, this was my third stay here. This time came with a group of 5 people, so we booked one family room and a separate standard room. The rooms themselves were satisfactory (though the front door of the standard room was hard to open and close), however, it's a pity that the hotel doesn't offer breakfast (they mumbled something about upgrading the dining room first but that project hasn't progressed since my last visit months earlier and indeed it looks the same as back on my first visit in 2014). Despite this, this hotel is still the best in town though without breakfast I have to give it one star less.

        3 Nights a Koh Kong Bay Hotel”
        Location of the hotel is good, but so are most of the hotels in Koh Kong, as it is a very small town. Second night we noticed some ants in the bed, and by the next morning I was bitten on my legs on several places. Guess cleaning the room is not very up to standard. Hotel provides coffee and tea in the room, but no kettle to get hot water. Pool is small, but ok for a hotel of that size. No breakfast, but some restaurants nearby. Wouldn't stay there again next time.

        Nice view, great swimming pool for kids, good amenities
        The location is very nice since you have a nice view of the river. The boat going to the island is just at the back of the hotel. There's massage, ticketing service and nice restaurants near the hotel. The only thing that pissed us was their restaurant service. No variation on breakfast, service is very, very, very slow. You have to wait for 30 mins just to get your coffee, then when they give the coffee to you it doesn't have sugar, so you have to wait for another 15-20 mins for your sugar. I just had to find it for myself. They don't serve lunch or afternoon snacks. Only dinner, but again, service is still very slow. Not sure why they are also serving the guests in the other hotels beside Koh Kong Bay hotel. The concept of the hotel is nice but not well maintained. We stayed at room #5 and the flush was broken. The receptionist was very nice though, she helped us in any way she can.

        Surprisingly Wonderful”
        Location, Breakfast, View
        We booked this hotel wanting someplace on the river with a view and a pool. After reading the latest reviews we only booked one night. Fortunately we found the hotel was everything we wanted and we stayed four nights. There were no bugs in our room or bathroom. We had plenty of hot water, the air-conditioning worked quietly and well and the breakfast was outstanding. Furthermore the beds were new, the sheets changed daily, the towels fluffy and thick. The flat screen TV had cable that got CNN, CNBC and several other English stations. I must also say the dining room staff were everything one could ask for. Their English abilities a nine or ten. On our second morning they knew how we liked our coffee and that we preferred more mango and less pineapple on the fresh fruit plate that came with our breakfast. If I had to find one problem with the hotel I'd note the landscaping needed some work. It was the dry season so that may be why. Definitely I will stay there again on my next trip to Cambodia.

        Extremely overpriced room full of cockroaches, a broken bathroom door, no hot water and mediocre breakfast
        As supposedly one of the best hotels in town, this hotel was a massive fail. it's EXTREMELY overpriced. Although check-in was smooth, on every night of my stay there were cockroaches crawling all over the bathroom and main bedroom area of the room. Mosquitoes were also a problem. The bathroom door was broken and couldn't be closed properly (not a big deal as I was alone) but no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't get any hot water from the shower, which is unbelievable when you're paying this much in this part of the world. Breakfast too was a joke. You have to order the night before and all you get is one bowl of noodles with tough to chew meat and a pot of tea or eggs Benedict or an English breakfast. Another fail. The swimming pool was quite dirty and there was even a band-aid floating around in it. Although the room looked inviting at first glance and the bed was quite comfortable, until the hotel improves it's hygiene standards, lowers the price of it's incredibly overpriced rooms
