Clean, great location right next to the national museum. The staff is very friendly and helpful, we used their services for a bunch of stuff including getting visas for Vietnam. Only drawback is the lack of elevator. 4th floor is quite tough to get to.

We stayed the second time at the Lotus Guesthouse as the location is great, the rooms are spaceous, the staff is friendly and helpful, the restaurant is very good. If you don‘t mind climbing the stairs and some ants in the room this hotel is a good choice

This hotel is great and has all the comforts needed. I was on the first floor and was fantastic. I came back to this hotel but was put up on the 5th floor - Lots of stairs and I didn't have a fridge but offered me a room on a lower floor the next day

        Good guesthouse close to palace and river”
        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

        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.

        For the money this is an excellent value. Its clean, comfortable. Dont expect a five star hotel. Its basic accomodations. Location is great. Very near riverside with restos and shops very close. Staff very freindly. Theres is no lift so if you are out of shape that could be an issue. Ill will stay again.

        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.

        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.

        Very budget place so don't expect much. For the price it's one of the better options especially the location. Close to almost everything. No lift and narrow stairs. 5th floor is very steep stairs. But the view from 5th is nice. Stay on lower floor if you can't do the stairs or you are a light sleeper.

        Nice location near the river and mai. tourist area. Staff is very friendly and helpful. There is no elevator, so if your room is on the 3rd or 4th floor you need some stamina. Also, don't book a tuktuk via the reception as there seems to be a huge markup compared to what you can negotiate with the driver or pay if you book through one of the apps.

        The hotel is good location at foreign's town, near Royal Palace, Sliver Pagoda, Mekong's river. The hotel didn't have shampoo. You can't rent motorcycle at hotel if you don't have 600 -700 USD to deposit. The hotel has copied customers's passport, I think should't keep deposit 700 USD. It is oki if it is 100 USD. I will book in the future when I come back Pnompenh

        Basic but great location”
        Cheap basic accommodation in a great location. Our Double room was clean and had air conditioning, all that we required. The rooms are located up a narrow flight of stairs with no elevator so be prepared for that! The restaurant downstairs had a large menu which made us a bit skeptical but we ate there quite a few times (open from breakfast until dinner) and everything was very tasty. Service was perhaps a teeny bit abrupt but never strayed into rude once. Would definitely recommend this hotel for the location, right next door to the Museum and the Royal Palace.

        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.

        The place is great. Really nice family that owns/runs it, clean, comfortable, and great location. The restaurant has good food and they can arrange just about anything you want to see or do for a reasonable price, cheaper than a lot of other places. Only downside is the stairs are a little steep and narrow but there is a handrail.

        This was a pretty good stay, a nice room, good location, good wifi. I had read about the ants in the earlier reviews and bugs don’t really bother me so I thought no big deal, but be careful! They are quick! I left a bag out that had an old cough drop in it while I was packing and ten minutes later there were swarms all over it. Still, I’d stay here again.

        I chose this place due to its vicinity to the Place. I book a room with a balcony so from the point, I can view some people walking on the streets, some part of the palace, the river etc. It is a peaceful place and there's a restaurant on the ground floor. it is a budget friendly accommodation so don't expect it to be so fancy. The good thing is there are so many tuktuk just in front of this accommodation.
