This is one of the best options for accommodation in Phnom Penh. The room I had was wonderfully furnished and accessorized. It had a very comfortable bed a very well finished bath and a huge terrace overlooking the city with a Jacuzzi tub. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and spoke very good English. The breakfast had a great menu and the food and service were excellent. Rambutan has a large beautiful pool area. You cannot find better accommodation in PP!!
Complaint about pick-up service”
Nice hotel, would come back. However, I felt cheated with pick-up service. Instead of being organized by hotel, you announced on booking that it was Holiday Taxis or something similar. They did not turn up at airport, leaving me stranded, waiting in heat and "attacked" by touts - just the kind of nightmare I wanted to avoid. Finally, I found an emergency number: first number - impossible to understand girl's voice in faint strained English language (robot); second number got a human, said to wait in café. I wasted about two anguished hours in all, so never again. Oh, the telephone number was not in Cambodia, but in some other country! Fortunately, my French phone allowed me to access this number. AS I SAID, NEVER AGAIN. Also, I had to go to extraordinary lengths to print the voucher, a sine qua non as if everybody travelling had a handy office for this. In the end, this "essential" document wazs never requested
This was my third stay at the Rambutan Resort”
Breakfasts are lovely, and so are the a la carte lunches and dinners. The pool is small, but very nice. The whole hotel is stylishly decorated, and the staff really are fantastic. The hotel owners look after their staff well, and in return, the staff look after the hotel guests very professionally, but with a very nice personal touch.
great hotel - very relaxing”
Lovely hotel - great staff. Awesome breakfast and totally relaxing. Only downside is the pool area gets busy at the weekend with visiting expats - would be much nicer if a lower cap was put on numbers of outside guests.
Another great stay! ”
I've stayed at Rambutan in Phnom Penh four times, and always have a great experience. The staff is top-notch and super-friendly, and the food is really good, so much so, that after dining out in town one night, we returned for dinner the next night at the hotel. Everything about the property is lovely and it's very conveniently located. I continue to give this hotel my highest recommendation.
Nice hotel but critical issue with shower”
Pros: Hotel facilities are very nice and staff is very friendly. Con: Shower and rest of bathroom are separated. Shower is on one side of the room by balcony door. Toilet and sink are on other side of room. Shower is all glass facing rest of room meaning you are putting on a show for anyone else in the room sitting on the bed. Also, the shower is very small. There is nowhere to stand except under the rain forest shower head meaning you couldn’t adjust the temperature before going under the water - you got the too cold and too hot water before getting what you wanted. Taking a shower was very awkward. Plus, afterwards if you wanted to use the sink area, it meant walking across the room to do so. Not sure why room was designed in this manner.
Nice and pleasant trip”
Rambutan Resort is ideally located. The staff are always courteous and cheerful. This is my second time returning on business trip. My stay was smack into the Elections. The staff took particular care to make sure we have things to eat and warn us that some of the restaurants outside may be closed for security reasons. When I hail a ride with my taxi app, one staff will make sure I am safely onboard before returning to the lobby counter. Thank you for making my stay delightful and safe.
Home with Family everyday”
I stayed at 209 for 6 days. Everyday I have to rush to meet the appointments at Phnom Penh with friends. We felt tired. However everytime we enter the gates of the hotel, there is always a friendly greeting from not one, but all the staffs from the Reception pass the kitchen and to the Bar. They will always ask, "How is your day?" " Do you want a drink?" "Do you want to order anything?" "Can I help you?" The breakfast prepared is delicious. Friendly staff. This time, I discovered the Smart Phone App to travel in Phnom Penh. So I did not need to bother the staff to hail a taxi for me. I just waited at the lobby. Still, a staff came to chat with me as I waited for my Tuk Tuk. He told me how the price has dropped since the App started. Also that most of the newer Tuk Tuk under the scheme no longer runs on Diesel or Petrol. Instead they use LPG gas. Which is cleaner and more fuel efficient. The Hotel is near so many NGO I had to work with yet, it is not at the main street. Love it.
Quite Oasis in a busy city”
Great staff - friendly and helpful. Nice size room with good soft goods. Strong and fast WiFi. Really good breakfast, freshly prepared lots of Asian and Western options. Pleasant pool area with plenty of seating and lounges. On a side street that doesn't get much traffic so it's very quite compared with many streets in the BKK1 neighborhood. A little far from the main part of BKK1, but easy to get to with tuk tuk or short walk - for me worth it for the peace and quiet. I will stay here again for sure.
Exceptional! Flirty, friendly, fun!”
It is rare that I don't have any "constructive criticism for a review, but Rambutan Resort just hot all the right notes with me. The location is quiet and peaceful, with a tranquil garden/pool/restaurant/bar for relaxing. Rooms are spacious with a quirky layout, and the bed is comfortable. But by far, it is the exceptional staff that made this stay so memorable. They were attentive, friendly, and helpful beyond measure. Their greetings and gorgeous smiles were always so large that it made me feel as if I was some sort of rock star that was getting special flirtatious attention. (They do their job THAT well!) I'd go back for that reason alone. LOL
Trendy place with good staff and smallish pool”
The Rambutan is a very chic redevelopment of an older property. Rooms are quite spacious and mine had a balcony with an outdoor bathtub (but I could not use it because the neighbours were too close). The restaurant is very good and the property is next door to the wonderful clothing-optional A&P hotel
Beautifully decorated hotel”
Second stay at this hotel. its in a lovely part of PP which is quiet and clean. They always have great tuk tuk drivers who are safe and trustworthy. The hotel is beautiful and has some lovely art on the walls. Food is lovely too. Try get a room with a balcony and a bath on the balcony.
Really enjoyed our stay at the Resort. All the staff were so friendly and helpful and organized day trips for us. Our room was lovely, very clean and we had all the amenities we needed to make our stay comfortable. The food was well prepared and very tasty. Would definitely recommend this resort to friends travelling to Phnom Penh. Thank you to all the staff for helping to make our trip to Cambodia very special
A delightful retreat”
This is an exceptional small hotel. Top marks for: wonderful friendly and helpful staff, in every role (outstanding); environment, atmosphere and cleanliness - quite exceptional; rooms that are simultaneously functional, utilitarian, chic, boutique, commodious; great breakfast options; proximity to cafes and restos. My only reservations are that the hotel is not in the tourist hub and the WiFi internet speed was quite variable (though usually okay or better). However, the compensations are manifold and very attractive. I smiled a lot!
Friendly staff ”
Stayed here for 4 nights and had a great time. From the moment I arrived at 6am! They got me into my room by 8am.. all the way through to my departure i was treated very well. All the staff are super friendly and smiley, always ready to help. The pool area is very relaxing and calming and the room itself has very comfortable beds.Also the breakfast is very tasty and you can order as much as you want! highly recommend.
Amazing staff; highly recommend the penthouse suite ”
Pros: food, staff, beds and pillows. Everything was amazing. They upgraded our stay to the penthouse suite when we came back for a night. It was awesome and had a private jacuzzi. Cons: not most convenient for walking to tourist areas or river and not much night life in area but really easy to get to from tuk tuk.
Excellent resort in the city”
The location is perfect for visiting the city; there were many restaurants, pub, and convenient stores near by. There was always local taxi (took Tuk) stand by in the front. The staff were pleasant and more than willingness to assist you and make your stay the most memorable time. The room includes daily breakfast and have good selections, you can chose from local, regional and international. I would suggest to try different dishes. The room was very clean and comfort. There is open air tub on our balcony but did not try yet; due to the saltwater swimming pool was so perfect. I did not see any shortfall except the number of room is limited.
I stayed at Rambutan with high expectations. Whilst the staff and location were good, I thought the room facilities could be better, especially the bathroom/toilet. It is good that these were in separate locations, they lacked space particular if you are a larger person. The shower entrance was narrow and the toilet cramped. Both of these aspects detracted from the stay. At the end of the day Rambutan simply did not meet my expectations based on the reviews I had read in Agoda.
Staff were friendly and helpful right from the entrance. The decor in the hotel was avant garde and the design was truly remarkable. Room was special and comfortable. Great place to chill at the cosy pool area.
We had a wonderful stay at the Rambutan Resort in late July / early August of 2014. Our expectations were met or exceeded by the friendly staff, new hotel furnishings, delicious food, and great value! The Rambutan is located in south-central Phnom Penh, and only about a 10 minute Tuk Tuk ride (generally $2 one way) from the Riverfront & Royal Palace. Highly recommended.
