I thought the guesthouse was a decent place to stay. Location was good - although noisy. The thin walls didn't help as we could hear people in other rooms as well as guests going up and down the stairs. Our room was only the 4th floor so if you have a lot of luggage it would have been a struggle...

It's right beside the palace and other attractions but at night it's loud as there are no proper windows on the rooms to cater for city life. The staff were asleep in our room when we arrived and make a lot of noise beside our room both late at night and early in the morning.

The location of this guesthouse is very central. The Royal Palace is right next to it just about 3 min walk. The main thing of this place that there is no elevator and if your room is on the 3rd floor your only way up there is through a staircase. I travel with suitcase which wieght 18 kilogram I couldn't...

Great location and front desk lady who speaks perfect English and can organise and tours or transport for you. Rooms are basic and only have a silk cloth as a blanket, wifi can be a bit dodgy and a lot of stairs to climb if on a higher floor but a good budget choice if you're just staying a night...

Clean rooms, good bathroom facilities, can book transportation to next destination & also in a good location for meals on a backpacker budget. Rooms cleaned daily and were very spacious. Air con worked well. Good value for money & nothing to complain about.

This side of the Mekong is interesting, because after 11pm it transforms from a lively and fun bar/restaurant scene into Cambodia's seedy underbelly. Being budget travellers, we were swayed by the low price. Although my girlfriend and I never felt that unsafe, (being drunk might have had something to do with it), we did feel a little on edge coming...

Bright Lotus has attractively decorated and spacious clean en-suite rooms with air-con, fan and excellent cable TV. The location is also excellent with views of the Royal Palace. This guesthouse is very good value, especially given the average prices in Phnom Penh are higher than is typical in SE Asia. We booked the double room with a corridor window, but...
