The best apartment in Camboida- Where to stay in Phnom Penh
The best apartment in Camboida is Service One apartment is located in Tuol Tompoung (Russian Market) is my favourite neighbourhood in Phnom Penh. It has a local feel, and because it’s very popular with expats, it has an incredible food and bar scene. It’s a bit further out, so factor in travel times.
Service One apartment provides the best apartment for rent, Soho office for rent and daily room for rent in Cambodia. If you visit Cambodia don’t forget to visit us.
Recently, I published an extensive Phnom Penh neighbourhood and accommodation guide. Here is a basic summary plus my recommendations for where to stay in Phnom Penh if you’re a first-time visitor.
Most tourists stay near Riverside (Sisowath Quay). Personally, this is my least favourite part of Phnom Penh. However, it is convenient to most of the must-see attractions, so I’m not completely averse to staying at Riverside if you have limited time (truthfully, I’ve stayed here a bunch of times, too).
A solid mid-range option at is Riverside, Point Boutique Hotel has views of the water, a gin-themed rooftop bar, and is close to all the action of Sisowath Quay. For budget travellers, I recommend Sla Boutique Hostel.
Raffles Le Royal is Phnom Penh’s premier hotel and can’t be beat for a luxury experience. For something different, designer hotel The Balé is located a bit further out of town and has a river-facing pool, exquisite designer suites with private courtyards, and a great on-site restaurant.
