Raffles Hotel Le Royal, Phnom Penh…disappointing room but very obliging staff

Filed under: Cambodia, hotel, Travel — Tags: , , , , , — PEr @ 8:57 pm

The room was a bit of a disappointment.  It was an old classic room which was facing the pool. There were not enough power points and that is  a major bummer for business travellers like us. The bathroom was tiled in white and had a bathtub and a shower corner with a glass door. There was a lack of bathroom amenities. The toilet flushes like a geyser. The maddening sound of the gushing water is followed by a upward splash of the toilet water. The jet was so strong, you literally would have to jump to avoid it or ready the umbrella which is provided in the room. (Now I know why they give you umbrellas in the room)

Breakfast was very nice. The meatballs were outstanding.

The best thing about this stay is the very obliging staff. Thy – a trainee – walked me to the gym one morning when I enquired directions to get there. Noemie Payumo, the restaurant manager, went out of her way to answer my enquiries.

This is the true truth as I say it as it is…
