We have stayed in this hotel on about 4 occasions with my wife and son (now 6 years old). The location is near perfect and, being close to the Prime Minister's house, adds a level of security that it is difficult to find anywhere else. The walled gardens and swimming pool allow the children to roam quite freely without any fear from outside.
The hotel pool is available to anyone willing to pay 5$ and so it can get a little busier at the weekend with people wanting to share the facilities. I have also used the hotel facilities as a 'day guest' and must say that it is a great p[lace to have a swim when staying in hotel with no pool.
When we first stayed our son wanted to only play in the childrens' pool but he has now progressed to the larger pool and happily swims up and down and back and forth where we can see him from the comfort of the comfy loungers on the side.
In the times we have stayed there we have experienced problems with
a) tuk-tuk not knowing where the hotel was so we had trouble finding it the first time we stayed
b) no staff present at entrance barrier on arrival so we had to carry our bags from the barrier to the hotel desk
c) minor issues with the room
Despite these problems (and remember we have been there on several occassions) I would still go back and stay again and again if we could afford it as it certainly is not the cheapest hotel in Phnom Penh.
Despite Phnom Penh having lost some of its charm over the years and now being a little overrun by expensive cars this hotel provides a space that is great to retreat to that is quiet and safe..
We have stayed in the rooms on the ground floor 'outsde' (best value) as well as the ones near to the desk (overpriced) and the ones upstairs 'outside' (a little small and dark). The use of the gardens and pool still made the stay enjoyable even if we were not overly impressed with the room.
Would recommend to any family with children coming to Phnom Penh.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- After opening our famous Pavilion boutique hotel, we realised, as people with family ourselves, that Phnom Penh needed a resort that was family orientated and child friendly. The historic colonial house we found on Oknha Peich Street with its 3500m2 of surrounding land was perfect. Caring, friendly staff, lots of nature for children to explore, the Kabiki is a place to relax, take a swim and lounge in the sun between days exploring Phnom Penh and the nearby attractions of the Royal Palace, Wat Botum and the riverside. We planted over 500 native trees, many of which we've placed name tags on so you can identify them yourselves. ... more less
