I booked the Family Room with Balcony. It is basically a maisonette with two levels and there is only 1 entrance on the lower level. There is a flight of steep (very steep) stairs in the room leading to the second level. Each level came with a queen bed and an en-suite bathroom.
*Do note that the room on the lower level is much less spacious than that on the upper level.
The air-conditioning units are quite dated but they still function well. WIFI is free and strong. My booking came with breakfast and it was a simple buffet with toast, fruits, fried rice, eggs (the eggs are not displayed, you will have to order directly from the waiters and state your preference: scrambled. fried or omelette), cereals etc...

The hotel staff were friendly and assisted us with our requests. That included getting reliable tuk-tuk service to visit the S21 museum and Killing Fields and taxi to the airport on our return journey.

From the hotel, you could walk to the river side, Central Market, Sorya Mall, Kandal Market and the Phnom Penh Night Market (each will take you about 15 mins walk)

The only thing that made me uncomfortable was the neighbourhood that the hotel is situated in. It is just slight messy and dirty with bars around. It is fine, but I would prefer a more comfortable/cleaner stay in the main city area, nearer to the Independence Monument.

The Silver River Hotel is well located, just a short walk from the Mekong and the National Museum. Staff are very friendly and their English is ok. I had a twin room for single use, the size was good, the wifi worked well and there was an electronic safe. The bathroom was modern with a good shower and the room was cleaned daily.
The breakfast is not fantastic, but I have had many worse breakfasts in Asia!
The tuktuk driver whom the staff organized for a city tour was very friendly and honest and I used him on the next day as well for a good price.
There is an ATM directly at the entrance, so it was good and felt safe to use that one to get cash.

On the negative side, I had dinner in the hotel's restaurant on the first evening and it was almost not edible as it tasted so bad.
Also it's not so nice to see male single tourists arrive with a Cambodian girl and her leaving after an hour, walking past you while you have your dinner. I had the impression that a number of men were visiting the hotel for that reason.
Moreover, the tuktuk drivers in front of the hotel were friendly chaps, but still they got on my nerves after some time because sometimes they already started shouting and waving their hands when I had not even left the hotel and was still in the lobby.

All in all, it was a good place to stay in Phnom Penh for that price, but I'd try another hotel if I traveled to the city again.

Room Tip: Some rooms look out to a wall which is not so pretty, but they may be quieter than the ones looking...

The best thing about this hotel happened after I'd checked out - and that's meant as a positive!

While on the bus to Siem Reap, I realised I'd left my travel adapter and phone charger behind. More in hope than expectation, I emailed the hotel to ask whether it could be posted on. They replied soon after and arranged for the adapter to be transported to Siem Reap, where I was able to collect it the next day, free of charge.

The staff were friendly throughout my stay, the hotel was centrally located but not noisy, and the rooms were clean and spacious.
