O Sofitel Phnom Penh Phokeethra fica nas margens do rio, entre jardins, no bairro antigo da cidade.

Além dos 201 quartos e suites com vistas para os rios Mekong ou Bassac, este bonito hotel dispõe de vários restaurantes e bares chiques, um spa de alto nível, 2 piscinas, um clube desportivo e as melhores instalações para conferências do Cambodja.
Prós: THE HOTEL HAD A COUPLE OF SHORT COMINGS BUT THE STAFF MORE THAN MADE UP FOR THAT. THE STAFF WENT THE EXTRA MILE TO BE HELPFUL. A MR RABY AND MISS SOPHARATH WERE ALWAYS SMILING AND MADE A PERSON FEEL AT HOME, EVEN HELPING ME GET A CAB OR BOOK A TOUR.
Contras: LOCATION WAS CONVENIENT TO PLACES, BUT THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS A LITTLE WEAK. POOL WAS SMALL BUT WELL MAINTAINED
Prós: It is a bit far from the airport, but it is right behind the National Museum and Royal Palace, so that's good. No airport shuttle, but they are happy to set you up with a cab to wherever you want to go. Pool on the upstairs deck is cool. Breakfast is good. Our room was terrific, and we were upgraded
Contras: The evening wait staff at the restaurant was surprisingly inattentive for how empty the place was.
Prós: The view from the restaurant 20 floors above the city.
Contras: I feel Kayak' website mis-represented what a compact room is at this hotel. There was no bathroom. It was the size of a shed and down right hazardous to move around in if I wasn't careful. I stayed one night and left. The hotel did not want to refund my money for the other two days I had paid for already. I did not feel like arguing, but wish I had.
