        A home in Phnom Penh”

        We stayed in Phnom Penh several days and chose this hotel for the centric position, the good wifi and the balcony option. Even if visiting the city, we had to work a lot and having a comfortable place with aircon, indoor and outdoor space, a kettle and good connection was essential. We found all this at Bright Lotus Guest House. Staff is friendly but you got a good level of privacy, plus the place is very clean and they will ask you almost everyday if you want the room to be cleaned (Just ask in case they don't). Only negative point is that the beautiful balcony for which you pay a higher price for the room doesn't have a private entrance and it s just the end of the generic hallway. The table say the balcony Is private and reserved for that specific room but it can obviously happen to have people there in front of your room. It didn't happen often, anyway, so really a minor thing. Super recommended. Felt like at home.

        Perfect location”

        Located between the Riverside and the Royal Palace, the Bright Lotus is just at the perfect location for exploring Phnom Penh. The room is spacious and well equipped (fridge, aircon, kettle, hot shower). This was my second stay and again I wasn't disappointed. Staff helped me (again) with my onwards travel at a reasonable rate and followed up when my pickup arrived too late and made sure I got on the right vehicle taking me to the bus on time. The only downside is that there is no power generator. There was a 2 hour power cut in the city center of PP, so no Internet, no aircon, nothing.

        What a view!!”

        This is a very good guest house in a terrific location. Up on the 5 th floor, which I admit is a long climb after a full day of walking (especially for an elder with bad knees) - there is a wonderful view of the National Museum and grounds. Lovely to look at both day (illuminated by the sunshine) and night (illuminated until about 11 pm by lights). The staff of this guest house are great, very helpful and wise in the ways of Phnom Penh. Everything is here at your command - the view, the walk along the promenade, all the imaginable types of food and drink, day-life and night-life. The loud music from nearby places stops around 10 pm. Imagine! A room with a view, air-con, and a fridge, great location, good wifi, great staff, very clean. Everything I am looking for.

        I stayed at the Bright Lotus for three nights in May. The room, and wet room, were clean. I had two fans and air. Although on Riverside it was very quiet. Excellent Wifi. The restaurant was very good and always busy with both Khmer and tourists dining there. Receptionist/owner very helpful and speaks good English. This is obviously a very well run business and I will stay here again in preference to anything else on Riverside.

        Best choice for budget travelers”

        I'm happy I selected the Bright Lotus. The location is just perfect and the staff very efficient. They were always friendly and booked my onward journey all the way to Koh Rong Samloen without overcharging. My room (101) was not the best choice because it's just near the front desk and the place where the cleaning lady stores her suppliers, so it gets a bit noisy from 6:30 am onward. Apart from that it's a perfect choice for budget travelers and I would come again.

        Good place to stay in Phnom Penh- far enough away to be fairly quiet and close enough to walk into the action of riverside, chec out the river or walk to a temple and palace. Would recommend mainly because the Lady - Lay who runs the place was very helpful with booking and given advice on the area also the restaurant is good, the Pho there tastes amazing. Would stay there again.

        Decent accommodation in a central location.”

        This guesthouse was pretty standard by as far as guesthouses in Southeast Asia go. They kept it relatively clean and the staff was friendly and helpful especially when it came to getting tuk tuks to take me to various attractions. I had a room on the 5th floor. The stairs were steep but totally manageable for someone with full mobility and a decent fitness level. It was worth the climb for the views from outside the room! The air con worked well enough to keep the room a comfortable temperature despite the heat and humidity outside. The room was basic but there was daily housekeeping, a decently comfortable bed, and good wifi even on the 5th floor. It was near the river in one of the main tourist zones so the area was swarmed with tuk tuk drivers trying to get you to use their services at every turn. But it was easy walking distance to many restaurants and the night market. It was a bit run-down but definitely a solid choice for a budget traveler looking for a private room.

        Very good”

        Perfect location by the river in Phnom Penh, but you do have to walk up quite a few flights of stairs to get to your room. At one point we got stuck having to wait for a very aggressive cat to finish its meal before we could get all the way to the 4th floor. The bathroom smelled like either mold or urine depending on the day, but otherwise it was very clean and the bed was comfortable. Great view of the city as well, and the restaurant downstairs was pretty good.

        Everything was good for the price. It's a somewhat old building with a restaurant on the ground floor. The room was spacious with a big bed and desk. The bathroom was clean enough, and there was hot water for a shower. In the $15-20 range, there are probably better hotels/guesthouses in the area. This place is good for a cheap night's stay.

        This is a basic guesthouse but we had a large room with two windows, good AC and fan. We were on the top floor (5 flights of stairs) but this was not a problem for us. Two free bottles of water on arrival but we were not given more (nor did we ask). It seemed standard that the staff would never come into the room to clean so we asked for more toilet paper as needed. A pleasant stay and good location.

        The guesthouse is clean and the staff friendly. They overbooked on the first night we were due to stay but arranged for a room at a nearby place. The room itself had a good view over the palace grounds from outside the front door. As others have mentioned there is a narrow staircase and a lot of stairs up to the higher floors, but that wasn't an issue for us
