Quick one night stay, maybe bit pricey for this standard of rooms, but friendly staff and no problems at all.
Just passing thru”
Just stayed here for one night, it was fine. Bathroom clean and friendly ppl
The location is good, the room is clean though water supply is not enough. No window. A little bit scarry because the stairs are narrow and stiff but everything is fine because of the friendly staffs. And very near to riverside walk.
Dear Jessa Thank you very much for your choosing to stay at The Local Riverside, awhile your holiday in Phnom Penh, and about water supply, yes we will check and try to fix this problem... Regard Yatwilliam and team
Checking out phnom pehn”
Possibly the friendliest staff in Southeast Asia. Location is prime, right on the riverfront, tons of dining options, 10 minutes from the night market and all the major Wats and royal palace. Only drawback was they had a killer shower stall, like a stall adjacent to the toilet with an overhead spout, but no hot water
Good location, helpful staffs, good for value.”
It is centrally located, you can walk to city attractions such as WAT PHROM, GRAND PALACE, WAT BOTUM, CENTRAL MARKET, NIGHT MARKET and RIVERSIDE ROAD. Staffs are very helpful, nice and very friendly. I think everything is good except the mattress.
Great location and friendly staff”
Located on the Riverside. Close to restaurants, entertainment, markets and transport. Staff are very friendly and helpful especially with booking bus tickets and organising transfers. Rooms were very clean and had everything you could possibly need. Good free Wi-Fi. Would definitely stay again.
Stayed in the penthouse with rooftop access. Big room for 4 and more than enough for 2. Many tv channels to keep us occupied. Location is right between night market and national muesum, 5-10 min walk to both direction. Staffs were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was not included but worth the price. Cons include water heaterdid not work, cobwebs in many areas of the room and musty smell of the pillow.
Great location, helpful staff.”
I stayed only one night but in that short time found the staff to be helpful, helping me with recharging my sim card and booking me a bus, which then had to be rebooked after I had left when I had to change my plans. YatWilliam even reconfirmed the bus for me when I wasn't staying there anymore. The room was clean and had a nice feel to it. I was in the balcony room which had a bath, handy although I didn't use it. The only down side of that room would be the light outside the window but it was turned off by about 11pm. I also ate lunch here which was pretty good too.
Near royal palace and night market”
The hotel location is good. Very near to royal palace and national museum. I’ve had a hard time sleeping due to stiff mattress since it’s already worn out. Good thing we only stayed here for 1 night.
Dear Shiela Thanks very much for your choosing to stay at our place and your wrote to us, all of your wrote and complaint, it was meaning to us to solve out and replace it. So now we were already replace it with new mattresses. The best regard The Local Riverside (team)
Owner very understanding man good man
It's not very special”
The photos available on Agoda does not correspond to reality at all.
Good location, that's all”
We stay in standard room. The bed is springy, the sheets smells like someone just use it. There is no quilt and just thin blanket. The washroom clean but smells like sewer. Only one staff or maybe the owner can speak English. The wifi is good. But definitely wont ever stay again here
Friendly staff and nice room. ”
The room was clean and nice, although the springs in the bed were very noticeable. We were only there for one afternoon, but the owner helped us with a tour to the killing fields and also our onward journey to ho chi minh. Close to everything and good restaurants nearby. Definitely a nice place :)
Great location. It’s close to everywhere you need to see as a tourist. It’s also located above a cafe which is convenient. You’d havThere’s no wifi in the room unlike whats posted here. Good thing I bought a Cambodian sim card. The only problem I had was I wanted to go out at 6am to walk around but found that the gate (of the cafe) was closed. They didnt give me a key and no one was awake
cool space great staff”
the owner and his staff are welcoming and lovely. the building is cool and really enjoyed our balcony. the bartender was great and we sat out and had great cgats with him a couple nights. great vibe and atmosphere.
Great for a Family”
A perfect guesthouse for a family with childern. Was very clean. We really liked the big room with plenty of space and comfortable beds and chairs. Perfect location and really friendly staff. Definitely value for money.
Brief stop in the city”
Beautiful triple room with terrace at the last floor. It's a pity they not include the breakfast in the price but still nice muealy and yogurt. The staff helped nicely us booking boat tickets to the border. Recommended
Despite good location, bad value for money”
Upon extending my stay I had to move to a superior room (as my room has been booked already) which was actually worse than the basic one (despite having a balcony). Cold water in the shower, several appliances not working (lights, actually no top lights in the room, only small bed lamp), noisy AC.
Great value, friendly and helpful owner”
This place is great value, great location and the owner and staff are really nice to deal with. Sure the rooms are not elegant but what do you expect for $15 or so a night. My room had no window and others complained of this - well this is a very noisy and busy area at night but because I had no window, my room was extremely quiet and dark - I was even able to sleep in for the first time in ages. The only negative remarks I agree with are that the mattress was lumpy and the hot water could have been hotter (it was ok though). But when staying in budget guest house I think it's reasonable to expect a few things to be less than perfect. As others have mentioned, the owner is a really decent guy and very helpful. His staff are also very friendly. For me this is far more important than a few things being less than perfect. One last thing - the restaurant downstairs is worth a visit. I stayed 4 nights and had dinner there twice and breakfast once. Food is very good. I will be back in PP next year and I will definitely check this place out again.
Cheap but Pretty run down”
This hotel is a small place very close to the river, the staff were very helpful and pleasant, but the building has seen better days, breakfast was not includerd so I am not sure about the food but they have a small kitchen and their attitude is good so I would think the food is probably cheap and good
