Crystal hotel, Sinhoukville

Turned up on spec after a disastrous check in at the hotel next door...anyway that's another story, the hotel was not as described.

The crystal was...very good hotel.
Nice rooms....good air con and bathroom.
View from window not the best but not bad, have come to learn on my 3 month travels, that they never are unless you are willing to pay 70£ a night.

Breakfast was one of the best I've had on my travels.

Beach just over the road...1 minute walk...plenty of eateries around.

Wou.d I recommend this hotel...most deffinately, wouldn't hesitate.

I was sent to Crystal Hotel because my room was double booked elsewhere.

The room that I was offered was a twin room. When I went in I smelled a strange smell but figured it must have been from the fridge, which had it's door opened and appeared to be airing out.

When I began to settle in to my room, I noticed that the bed covers were a disney print, this room was intended for children. I put two and two together, the smell that filled the room was the same that you would smell at a child care centre, like dirty nappies. With that thought I pulled back the bottom sheet to reveal the most disgusting and smelly mattress that I have ever come across. I checked the other bed and it was identical.

I went to reception to ask to move rooms but the young man serving could barely speak a word of English. I had to haul him up to my room to show him the mattress and I think he got the picture. I was eventually moved to another room. It was also twin and the mattresses were also stained but no where near as bad and not smelly. The mattresses were were foam rubber though with that egg carton type top to them, very uncomfortable to sleep on.

The bathroom also stunk and didn't appear overly clean. I am not a princess and am happy with basic rooms, my main concern is that they are clean and this one simply wasn't.
But after arriving at the hotel at 10.30pm after 15 hours travelling to get to my original hotel who had sold my room, I reluctantly stayed. But I will never be back, nor ever recommend it.

I wish I had thought to take a photo. You wouldn't have believed it!

Room Tip: If you get a twin or child's room ALWAYS pull the sheet back and check the mattress

It was my first time with my family to visit Sihanoukeville and very excited to the see the beach. As soon as we arrived I was happy that the Ochheuteal beach is just a few walks away from the hotel. We dropped our bags and go straight to the beach. My only concern is the room is a little bit dark and was difficult to communicate with staff on the phone when we asked for the WIFI password and requested for an extra pillows and towels. I would say our stay is satisfactory in general.

If you are looking for good value Hotel near the beach, the Crystal Hotel is a good choice.
Lots of Restauants all around.
The price and the value was for me good, so I came more times in the last years.
