Reviewed 23 June 2017

I arrived late, checked in, had to change rooms twice because air conditioning didn't work and then only afterwards was told that wifi didn't work.

It became quite apparent after a few minutes of waiting around that they provide the local prostitutes with a place to bring customers and they rent the rooms out by the hour.

There was very loud building work that started at 7am right outside my window, meaning I had a very bad night's sleep with no chance of a lie-in.

When I raised my issues when checking out, it was met with nothing more than a smirk.

Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Room Tip: Front would be better as there's less noise in the morning but better get somewhere else entirel...

I was hard up on my luck with no cash after miscarriage medical bills for my khmer girlfriend , i explain to the manager Chet , who gave me the trust for a week with no questions asked for money , he has been so supportive to me . Now ive sorted my finances and able to pay again , ive made a new set of lifetime of friends here at Mama's Villa Street 172 Phnom Penh . Theres noise here in the Hotel from internal and external construction , Chet , The Manager forewarns all guests giving them an opportunity accept or deny the room ,and flexible in room discounts for inconveniences met during the stay . Staff never stop smiling and are great with language intolerances and sincere serving in there performed duties . Any negatives found or written about at this place are superseeded with Staff friendliness and sincerity , very relax happy place to stay ,, even with construction noise surrounding this and alot of quality accomodations in Phnom Penh... Love the place Love the staff,, it Rocks..

First room was okay for this type of room. Issues: toilet seat broken and quite obvious. Was moved the next day but talking to the current occupant was finally replaced. The bottles of water and soap and etc was not in the room like the second room. Room Air Con has a hard time keeping room cool due the sun shining in. Reception on the flat screen was not good like the second room.

Room cleaning is good, but you may have to ask for it. Second room Air Con take a long time to cool room. The small refrigerator is has no power when the control card is out, so items become warm.

Staff is friendly.

So after checking out early of an another hotel because it was so awful this placed seemed like luxury! The room we booked wasn't however the guy working there showed us two other rooms we could choose from and knocked a few dollars off so we couldn't complain. The room was spacious, clean, excellent air con I actually woke up freezing! Tea and coffee facilities which is a such a bonus when you've been travelling for a while and love your tea! Boiling hot powerful showers too after staying at a place with only cold water, seems a few places in Cambodia have cold showers. Good wi fi and an extra bonus was we had breakfast included, you can choose from toast, fruit, omelettes and eggs with tea or coffee. When you take this into account I think the hotel it excellent value for money! Lovely staff too

Very welcoming, friendly and helpful staff; within walking distance to several tourist & scenic places, and eating places. Readily available tuk-tuk's. On request, they readily & happily substituted the (free) western breakfast for a local breakfast (e.g. noodle soup, etc.).
The place is now called Mama's Villa (same address); tel: (+855) 23 98 96 96
