Review of Silver River Hotel, Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Share on Twitter Share on Facebook

If you’ve come to Phnom Penh to experience the miracle of South Asia and the wonders of the Khmer people, Silver River Hotel won’t do the trick: it’s too impersonal and it renders a sense of international place with no specific identity. However, this doesn’t mean services aren’t excellent. In fact, considering the price, you’ll get more comfort than you’ll expect.

Rooms are large and minimalist, quite cozy and functional. However, before booking, check the view from the balcony; just to make sure you won’t end up facing a ten-story flat right across the alley. Amenities here are more than reasonable and you’ll get an electronic door key card for easy access.

Eating at the Silver River Hotel is rather nice due to their extensive culinary offer which ranges from Western to Asian and Chinese specialties. Prices are reasonable and you may come to the point when eating here on a daily basis would seem reasonable if you plan to stay more than a few days in Phnom Penh.

The Good

  • Good beds, and TV satellite in rooms;
  • Excellent location.

The Average

  • Noisy rooms and noisy area;
  • Some issues with accessories in the bathroom.
