      the river star has a fabulous location right beside the tonle sap river in phnom penh and right in the middle of the tourist area. my room was designated as having a river view and it had a most magnificent one. the hotel is not new but is clean and is well-appointed. the staff really make this a great place to stay. they are among the friendliest i have met anywhere. you can also book tours to other parts of cambodia from the hotel itself. i would definitely stay in this hotel again if i were to return to phnom penh.

      Friendly spot to stay the night”

      All I was looking for was a clean, comfortable place to spend 16 hours before taking the ferry to Siem Reap. The River Star was great -- it's nice, in a good location next to the Tonle Sap. The staff is very friendly and helpful. When I arrived, their systems were down and it took more than 45 minutes to get me checked in. I didn't care -- they have a nice front patio area where I could sit and wait and they kept bringing me beer as an apology. The room was clean and comfortable with a good AC system and a clean bathroom. The River Star was perfect for what I needed and if I ever make it back to Phnom Penh on a similar itinerary, I'll make a return visit.

      I've stayed at River Star Hotel before and it's great. The hotel is older but well maintained. The staff are friendly and very helpful and the room is spacious and while older still very good. I had breakfast included in my deal and cannot fault it( you go across the road to the sister hotel to eat). Highly recommend the River Star.

      while phnom penh's riverside is chaotic, this hotel offers a respite from the madness of the riverside area. it was a tranquil stay with no disturbances from other guests. the room included an open-air balcony, good air-con, a tv, and a very spacious room, an ideal spot to unwind from the diesel fumes of downtown phnom penh. staff were helpful and polite, and motorbike/tuk-tuk drivers were just outside for transport around town or to the airport.

      Best All Around”

      Location, staff, balconies

      Of the many similarly-graded hotels that I have patronized throughout SEAsia over the last 8 months, I assign my own 5 Star rating to the Three Star River Star Hotel. Its location is perfect--right on the riverfront, especially with a 4th Floor river view room that has a balcony & a small table with chairs. I spent much time watching the river traffic and activities on the RiverWalk. Check-in & checkout were always quick. The staff, inclusive of housekeeping, were welcoming and extraordinarily friendly albeit with English that could be improved. The cafe at the open air lobby was comfortable and a gathering place too with service & food that were good. WiFi was fast and reliable, the most important feature for me as a location-independent worker. The rooms (and I stayed in several) were large with the standard firm mattress that was worn, a desk and refrigerator. Linens and towels were ok. Additional outlets are needed but I made do. The bathrooms were adequate with hot water and good pressure. I never experienced sewage backup or a malodorous atmosphere. toiletries were provided. The lift always worked and was fairly quick. I was satisfied with security in the hotel and also with safety in the area but remained situationally aware at all times--as should you. While the physical property could be improved in many ways, I grew to be a fan and would unhesitatingly return to stay again. It's a super value.

      Great hotel.... Lovely staff!”

      Staff were friendly, clean rooms, great!

      I stayed at the river hotel and got a great deal through Aida. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. The rooms were a good size with opening windows that allows the fresh river breeze to come flowing in. I would recommend the hotel to anyone wishing to be in the river but a little away from the hustle and bustle.

      good location, good price, reasonable rooms”

      location & staff

      I spend three nights of a long weekend here. Perfectly suitable for sightseeing in and around Phnom Penhm. Close to many bars, nightlife and dining option. Riverside is very touristy, but I guess still the best place to stay if you're just a short time in Phnom Penh.

      Good location for nocturnal activities ”

      PP city isn't a particularly pleasant place, but this hotel was good and the breakfast was excellent. I had a large window less room, it was very quiet. I have no desire to visit this city again but if forced to I would definitely return to the River Star.

      good location and good price”

      A no frills hotel but a great price. I had a 4th floor room with great view of the river. The facilities are average, no free breakfast but for 22 a night cannot expect to much. Besides it is a 3 star hotel so cheap and good.

      large room, friendly staff, excellent location

      This is the second time I have stayed in this 2 star hotel. It is well located being right beside the Tonle Sap river and close to some excellent restaurants, as well as the night market. The rooms are large and comfortable. All the staff are friendly and helpful with good English skills.
