            Short visit to Phnom Penh made special by The 252.”

            The 252 Hotel's charming ambience. Loved the clean and modern bathrooms amidst the 60s to 70s look of the hotel. Loved the food served at the hotel's poolside restaurant.

            This was my first visit to Phnom Penh. Other than wanting to stay central to the markets and attractions, I had no idea which hotel to book and based my booking decision solely on reviews by travelers from a couple of different travel portals. Of the hotels I shortlisted, The 252 Hotel was the only one that had absolutely good reviews. We were not disappointed. The room was clean and tidy. The bathroom in the room was modern and clean. Importantly, the aircondition worked!! One very nice thing to note is that The 252's poolside restaurant serves very good food. If you just wanted to hangout by the pool all day you could and not worry about going out for meals! Delicious Khmer Cuisine to a wide selection of Western. In my opinion I think what made our stay at The 252 most memorable is the fact that it is run by its owner, who was most hospitable and helpful during our stay. Being away in a new city and having a friendly place to go back to at the end of the day, gives one a certain sense of security. It just felt like home at The 252. I look forward to my next visit to Phnom Penh and I know where I will be staying.

            Oasis in a bustling city w/ a personable experienc”

            Staff & guests, food, pool

            I spent 2-days at some hotel and 2-nights at 252, next time I'll be staying at 252 exclusively. While they're two completely different experiences, nothing can beat the vibe cultivated at 252 by the owner and his guests. As a female, solo traveler I was looking for a hotel that was comfortable, I felt safe in and would provide personal recommendations. I got both of those and so much more. as a longtime resident of Phnom Penh his recommendations allowed me to experience both the touristy and every day life of the city. Knowing I was traveling alone, he invited me out with a group of other guests for a night of drinks and dancing, he even taught a few photography tips. A lot of guests were in Cambodia doing philanthropic work and had such inspiring stories, each with a unique point of view. The owner is doing great things for the city in his own ways as well giving me even more of a reason to stay. Needless to say, I'd highly recommend this spot. Outside of the ambiance, the rooms themselves are spacious (I booked a deluxe pool view room), clean and a good value. The pool is awesome and the food at the bar delish. Great happy hour specials.

            -- all good --

            BEAUTIFUL & RELAXING POOL, LOVELY ATMOSPHERE The 252 Hotel is extremely pleasant and excellent value for money, staff charming and very helpful. Large rooms attractively designed, superb pool, an oasis of charm behind a strip of fresh white walls on the north side of 252 Street. The air-conditioner kept temperature pleasant quietly enough, and the area around the hotel was quiet. Like many Phnom Penh hotels, no elevator. Lucky Supermarket, best place for Western-type produce is a 5-minute walk, as are two burger restaurants. Several inexpensive (approx $2 per dish) Khmer restaurants face the eastern end of Street 252. I shall stay there again on my next visit to Phnom Penh.

            Good free internet, spacious and comfortable room (#18, top floor), the awesome staff!

            I have been staying here for 10 days so far. I needed a reasonable priced place to stay that would also be comfortable with good internet access as I would be working from the hotel most days. This place has really surpassed my hopes. It is such an oasis to come back to after a days work. Open the gate and you are immediately presented with the beautiful pool and surrounds. It's just really nice. My room (18) is bright, comfortable, private and given my business needs, has a great work space right by the big windows (so I can peer out instead of doing my work). WiFi is free, and you can utilise different routers as you go from the top floor to the pool and restaurant area thus keeping the signals strong throughout the hotel - nice touch. Finally, I really like the staff and owners here. Really polite, really helpful and respectful of your privacy if you need it. Hopefully I will be back with my wife and kids next time - think knowing that hotel 252 is available makes it possible to bring the toddlers to Phnom Penh, it's that cool.

            Beautiful pool and garden area, great location

            We live in Phnom Penh, but just wanted a couple of days to escape the bustle of our busy life here. The 252 Hotel was the perfect place to do this Lovely room and bathroom and the pool and garden area were so lovely to relax in. The restaurant served delicious food, with the choice of 2 different complimentary breakfasts available. It was just a short walk to Street 278, where there are loads of fab restaurants as well. My husband also got a massage & I got a lovely manicure at reasonable rates too, so a great retreat for us

            Lovely staff, room and pool

            The 252 was an amazing hotel to stay at and come back to after a long hot day exploring Phnom Penh. The staff were very attentive and friendly and this gave the hotel a really lovely and relaxed atmosphere. The pool and cabanas were amazing an just what we needed after long hot Cambodian days! The room was huge and had a lovely view of the pool. The mattress was a bit hard but we were given the option of changing this if we wanted - it didn't bother us enough to need to! The food and the cocktails at the restaurant and poolside bar were of a very high quality and were very good value for money! The breakfast was lovely and filled you up ready for the rest of the day!

            Hotel 252, Phnom Penh”

            Stylish decor; comfortable, clean rooms; mp3 player in room; inviting swimming pool; charming, helpful manager
            None to speak of, location is away from the main strip, but only a short $1 ride by tuk tuk; there is no lift.

            I enjoyed staying at Hotel 252. The rooms are stylish in a minimalist European way and tastefully decorated. The rooms are well equipped with safe, flat screen TV, and mp3 player. My room and bathroom were clean and comfortable. The hotel has a beautiful swimming pool surrounded with individual cabanas - a great place to chill out or take a massage after a day coping with the chaos of downtown Phnom Penh. The meals at the bar/restaurant were delicious and good value. The French-speaking manager is personable and helpful. The hotel is in the suburbs, but is only a short and inexpensive ride by tuk-tuk ($1) from the restaurant strip. I found the location to be an advantage as the hotel is quiet in evenings, which may not be the case if you stayed in one of the properties near the strip. I would stay at Hotel 252 again and would recommend it to friends. I found it to be good value in its price range.

            The 252 was an awesome find, a secluded hotel in busy Phnom Penh. It's a bit of a distance from the riverside, but close to other attractions in Phnom Penh. The rooms are beautiful, the pool is lovely and the service was impeccable. Such great value for money.

            Nothing

            Phnom Penh is not a great city. The dirt, poverty and noise make it important to have a calm retreat. The 252 hotel is brand new and already works excellent as such a retreat. In a very small area they have gotten everything important in including a cool and friendly atmosphere.

            New French-run hotel ”

            Closed to the street, beautiful rooms with comfortable beds and an iPod dock
            Not their fault, but there was a lot of construction going on next door (during day only)

            We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. It was our last day in Cambodia so it was a beautiful retreat from the city. The rooms are beautiful, new and have air con and hot water. It is a French boutique hotel so we found that most of the other guests were French (which was fine). The owner also speaks English and made the effort to speak to all of his guests, including us. All the staff could speak some English and were very helpful. We were able to hang around late in the pool/ bar area until our cab to the airport arrived (the hotel organised this for us). Food was good (combo of Western and Khmer foods) that is prepared in a small but very clean kitchen. The biggest plus was the big wall preventing any non-guests entering the hotel. It was a nice retreat when you just wanted to relax and not be hassled. There was a bit of construction going on nearby but this was the same throughout Phnom Penh. Would definitely stay here again.

            We stayed for two nights and didn't want to leave. The service was very good - it felt personal but also professional. The room was large with a very nice bathroom. There are lovely poolside booths to relax by and the food/drink is very nice. Very helpful staff who are able to book travel on your behalf. The resturant was good, prices no more than riverfront resturants. Overall it the best hotel we stayed in on our entire trip. Have recommended to lots of friends. Not by the popular riverfront area but I wouldnt say it matters because the tuk tuks are so cheap and readily available. If we come back to phnom penh, we will definitely stay here again!

            The 252 seems to be relatively new; it is a "hip" design that, mostly, works well. Comfortable rooms, good beds, hot showers, and friendly staff are the pluses; the location - with few restaurants or desirable sites nearby - is something of a minus. Overall, I would recommend it - as long as you know you way around Phnom Penh.

The owner of the hotel made you feel welcome immediately and the staff went out of their way to make your stay memorable. Nothing was too much trouble. Travelling alone, but made to feel like family. This hotel has been an experience I will always cherish and have to come back, because I feel I am leaving a wonderful friendship. I advise all travelllers to experience this and the rooms are as good as any exclusive hotel I have stayed at. I am so grateful and thank them for receiving me so well

            This hotel was a nice escape from the busy streets of Phnom Penh, though it's located near enough to many typical tourist haunts. The staff was friendly and very helpful, providing good restaurant recommendations and local travel advice. We liked the simple and functional room designs. The pool/cafe area was a great place to relax. Regarding the "con" - the window blinds in the room were a little strange. Lowering them provided privacy, but the ones for the entry door actually blocked the entrance when lowered. A minor point, really. Overall, a great place we'd recommend and return to.

            The nature of the room simple and with an air of "Flinstone style" and quiet.

            Good value savings. The beds/wardrobe and couch are made of stones just like the Flinstone style" Bedrock" except for the mattresses. Rooms are simple and spacious. Location is facing the Korean " church so we can hear the singing and prayers. A lot of tuk-tuks in front of the hotel but the counter desk informed us that they wait for the 252 hotel guests if they want to go sightseeing. Lovely place. We did not go out in the night cos it was our first night and we were not sure of the surroundings.
