Raffles Hotel Le Royal5 stars

92 Rukhak Vithei Daun Penh, Sangkat Wat | map

8.8 Very Good based on 398 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Historic hotel. Superb facilities. Excellent location.

The legendary Raffles in Phnom Penh dates back to the 1920′s when architect Ernest Hébrard proposed a grand 55-room hotel as part of his visionary plan for turning a small, Cambodian-French colonial city into a bustling well-planned metropolis.

Since opening, The Raffles has survived two World Wars and the Pol Pot regime, during which the hotel provided a safe haven for journalists covering the invasion of the city (the hotel was the main location in the movie “The Killing Fields”).

The hotel has retained a lot of its colonial grandeur and is now city landmark in its own right.  It has been updated with all the facilities we have come to expect from a 5-star hotel, including a beautiful pool, terrace and gardens, excellent restaurants and gym.  Great service, and we can testify to a very warm welcome being extended to gay guests.

26 Old August Site, Sothearos Boulevard, Bouding | map

8.5 Very Good based on 147 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Colonial style. Modern facilities. Close to attractions.

The 5-star Sofitel Phnom Penh is a relatively new addition to the Phnom Penh hotel scene.  It is located in the old French quarter of the city and both the external and internal appearance has been modelled loosely on a colonial style.  The colonial theme continues in the guest rooms that feature large bathrooms and exceptionally comfortable beds.  All the hi-tech stuff is there but largely hidden out of sight.

The Sofitel breakfast buffet is exceptionally good (US$25 per person if not included in your room rate), and the hotel has a really good (although a bit pricey) Italian restaurant.  There is a decent-sized pool and well-equipped gym.  Free WiFi in public areas (charged in some rooms).

The hotel is located in the south of the city, with most of the major attractions being less than 10 minutes away by tuk-tuk.  The same applies to the gay scene, although the Amam and Romantic Saunas, Hatha Khmer Spa can be reached by tuk-tuk in just a few minutes.

Naga World, Hun Sen Park, Riverfront | map

7.9 Good based on 1968 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Riverfront location. Popular casino. Top-notch facilities.

Built in 1995, NagaWorld is recognized as one of the best integrated casino-hotel in Indochina.  This 5-star property features an 8-story entertainment complex with world-renowned casinos, gaming halls, karaoke lounges and gaming machines.

The hotel has more than 500 rooms and suites, a spa, a fitness center, several restaurants, free WiFi and just about everything you need – all in one place.  Needless to say, the food and service is excellent.

NagaWorld is located by the riverfront in the heart of the Phnom Penh, with plenty of dining options, attractions and gay-friendly venues nearby.  But we think you’ll have very little desire to leave the hotel.

Frangipani Royal Palace Hotel4 stars

27 Street 178, Riverfront | map

7.8 Good based on 430 Agoda reviews

Why this hotel: Fabulous views. Rooftop pool. Near the gay nightlife.

The best part about the Frangipani Hotel is perhaps the rooftop swimming pool with views of the Royal Palace and the city of Phnom Penh.

Located in the riverfront area and just around the corner from the Royal Palace, this 4-star hotel  features 72 modern rooms with hardwood floors, flat screen cable TV, tea & coffee making facilities, minibar and free WiFI.  The rooftop restaurant & bar serves Cambodian and international cuisine and a good selection of wine.  There is also a spa and an art gallery.

The Frangipani is surrounded by some of the city’s best-known attractions as well as several gay and gay-friendly bars.  The staff are friendly and helpful.  A smart choice.
