The first thing that hit me was one walks off a busy street and is hit with an almost tranquil Oasis, hanging trees over a deep greenish/ blue pool. We stayed 4 nights here, the rooms were big and were keeped clean, the staff were more than helpful and friendly. The menu was sparse, but one is central and the...

I stayed in room 10 which is the largest room and looks over the pool. It was cleanish but the whole place could do with painting. The staff were lovely, but be careful if they organise a tuk tuk for you, as it's much cheaper if you walk around the corner. The location is good but the traffic noise is...

We stayed at Circa 51 for 2 nights and sometime during the second afternoon someone had gained access to our room and to the safety deposit and stolen my wallet and the majority of our cash (several hundred). Terrible timing as we were going into rural areas for the next 2 weeks where only cash is accepted, our debit card...

We are really disappointed to see your review - after we refunded you more than $300 on your stay because we felt bad for you, even with no proof that any theft happened at our property. We had the police come 3 times to the property, as you know, interrogating our staff members - after which they could find no...

Five friends and I went to Cambodia and stayed at Circa 51. The place has no reception as such and the building is in need of a good paint. It's tired. The 'chef' doesn't arrive until 12 ish and the menu is limited. The staff are fantastic and they are what make the place. It wasn't busy and you could...

Although I had a quick stay here, I absolutely loved the vibe and the staff. This boutique hotel was adorable and in a great location. The staff provided complimentary breakfast and helped coordinate my tuk tuk rides to all of my activities and were very keen on ensuring all of my needs were met. Truly great place, especially for the...

Magid and staff were really very courteous and helpful. He was very happy to share his knowledge of Phnom Penh and went out of his way to help us do what we needed to. Room 10 was our room and it's huge and cool in the heat. We had a great sleep. It has a balcony overlooking the pool and...

I am taking the time to give a wonderful review to the staff of circa 51 for their wonderful accommodation and hospitality. The staff really made our stay in Phnom Penh better than we could have ever expected. My husband and I flew to Phnom Penh with no notion on where to go and what to do given the days...

I spent 9 nights at this guesthouse, which is a rambling post-modernist French Villa in a fantastic, central location. My ensuite room, number 7 was huge and furnished with a fridge, TV, aircon etc, the bed was also very comfortable. Sorya, the manager is absolutely wonderful, nothing is too much trouble and her lovely manner helped me feel like more...

I had room 4, it is located on the ground floor, next to the reception, bar and swimming pool. When it is noisy in those places you hear it, but it was not too noisy, so that was still ok. If you don't close the curtains, everybody can take a look in your room. There was a strange smell in...

We visited Phnom Penh in December 2016 and stayed at Yvette's Circa 51 boutique hotel. The hotel was at one time a large home and is situated inside a walled enclosure on a corner street. On the ground floor as you enter, on the left are two ponds, one of turtles and one with fish. On the right is an...
