Phnom Penh Spring Guest House
34 Street 111, Boeng Pralit 7 Makara
Spring Guesthouse is one of the best budget options in Phnom Penh. With its professional management, thoughtful service and well-equipped rooms it offers real value for money. The location, just off Monivong Blvd, the city's main drag, is central but a fair hike from the main action.
An unfortunate typo on their card says 'bland new building', but while the five-storey maroon-painted structure looks anything but bland from the outside, the 50 'brand new' rooms are not about to feature in Vogue Living. Neither large nor lavish, they are, however, very functional for the money and come with two clean sheets - no need to BYO. All rooms are the same size and have a bathroom, a window and a TV with 60 channels of cable. Room prices vary depending on whether you choose fan or air-con, and hot or cold water. Downers here are the lack of food and, at certain times of year, mosquitoes, which can be a problem despite the net screens. But budgeteers might be pleased by the cheap laundry service, helpful advice and tour-booking services.
Rooms are very average, but i guess you get what you pay for.
we booked 3 nights buy only stayed 1 night.the bed is not comfortable anf is very noisy .so we changed the hotel next days.
Positive points : good value for money, good location. Quite spacious room, with windows. TV. Quiet place.
To be improved : staff is nice in overall, but could smile more. There is an internet access, but not free (other places have it included for a similar price). As there is no breakfast served and no restaurant there, it would be nice to at least have the possibility to make coffee, either in the room with a little kettle or in the lobby. Room was cleaned daily during the first 2 nights and not any more after that, we don t know why. Was not a big deal, but we had to empty our small bathroom bin, ask for toilet paper etc...
able to walk anywhere if not to hot. central. good value for money. clean and friendly. Good Indian food one block same street towards river. Tuk-tuk and moto outside hotel. Cheap beer hall (50c) in 115 st.
This is a Trusted Review. Why?
Problems I had:
1. They failed to honor the rate I reserved under (and as I was backpacking, I had no way to print the emailed reservation). Now it was not a big deal of money - your fee was $3.20 or something - and the rate went up $2.00 on one night. But it was not honest. I accept the blame of not having the printed receipt.
2. Room was advertised as having AC, which is why I stayed there. There were 2 fans instead.
3. One of the fans made a huge amount of noise; they said they would fix it, and didn't. I took it apart and fixed it.
4. There was mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. Not a little, either.
5. The handle to the water for the shower falls off. No hot water, which was fine anyways.
6. The drain in the bathroom for the shower water was clogged and drained only over a matter of hours (hence see 4).
And as a personal item, the pillows were fossilized in the Cretaceous.
