Accommodation plays a major part in any trip. With comfortable accommodation, you will sure enjoy your holiday. It was same for us when we were in Phnom Penh few weeks ago. We were lucky to spend 3 comfortable nights at Frangipani Royal Palace Hotel Phnom Penh with our 3 years old son. Why I mentioned about the kid? Parents who travel with kids know why your accommodation should be kids friendly when you travel with kids. When the kid enjoys the place, parents automatically get the comfortable and relaxing holiday experience. I guess I am correct!
Well.it was another holiday and we planned to visit Cambodia. As mentioned in our Phnom Penh itinerary, we spent 3 nights in Phnom Penh visiting the major attractions. As Frangipani Royal Palace Hotel is strategically located near most of the major attractions in Phnom Penh, we could easily visit those places daily without getting much tired or without wanting to travel much distance.
Where to stay in Phnom Penh?
Where to stay in Phnom Penh?This was our one of the first concerns at the time we were planning our Phnom Penh holiday.Among the many hotels in Phnom Penh Cambodia,finally we decided to book Frangipani Royal Palace hotel based on the reviews and views of the rooms we found over the web.Our decision was not wrong.It is one of the best hotels phnom penh cambodia which is comfortable and cozy!
Our Stay in Delux Double Room of Frangipani Royal Palace Hotel
We booked our Phnom Penh accommodation through Agoda. However, as always we were in doubt until we saw the actual location. The day we entered into this hotel in Phnom Penh, I was truly amazed with the beautiful interior. That is my concern always. I always look for calm and relaxing spacious places to stay during any of our holidays. Then for my husband, it was the location and services. Yes, I check for such things too.
When we entered into the hotel, the staff greeted us and welcomed with a drink. That was really helpful to satisfy our thirst after few hours flying and travelling. Then the room! That’s the exciting part for any holiday!
The room! Yes, it looked like Royal! The blend of red and white colours created the room a Royal appearance.it looked romantic and it looked energetic. At first sight I was attracted to it. And for our kid, it was a spacious room to run around.
Cleanliness was up to satisfied level. The bathroom in our room was clean, tidy and with pleasant look. The view from our room is just fantastic as it was faced to Wat Ounalom. I could watch sunrise early in the morning and beautiful city view with lights at the night time.
Check the current rates.
Our room rates came with breakfast. So we enjoyed breakfast from the hotel each day. The staff is really helpful and friendly. As my kid is talkative, he started talking with staff during these breakfast sessions making our trip memorable. 🙂
Breakfast Buffet was with different food choices including local food from Phnom Penh and other choices. Overall we are satisfied with our experience in Phnom Penh in Frangipani Royal Palace Hotel!
During our last night, we had dinner from the hotel restaurant. The restaurant at the roof top is excellent for having dinner with views of riverfront.
If you visit Phnom Penh, this hotel is ideal to spend the night as it is located in walking distance to major attractions of Phnom Penh. The national Museum of Phnom Penh is less than 5 minutes’ walk. The Royal Palace is also in around 6-7 minutes walking distance. Other nearby attractions include the Riverfront area and Wat Ounalom which is less than 10 minutes walking distance.
Other than these attractions, there are souvenir shops and other temples around the hotel area. We could hire Tuk Tuks easily whenever we visited the other attractions such as Wat Phnom. The cost for Tuk Tuk to other city areas was around $4 from this hotel.
Other facilities and services
Frangipani Royal Palace Hotel is equipped with basic amenities which you look for in any comfortable hotel room. Other than that, this hotel is with a pool on roof top and also a spa.
We want to highlight the friendly staff. They were absolutely friendly and we were greeted with their best smile and service. This was our first time in Cambodia. So, this friendly staff gave us a hint of hospitality and friendliness of local Cambodian people. You will sure have memorable time there while talking with the staff during your stay if you visit Phnom Penh!

Love my hotel to be walking distance to most places I would want to visit. I always would want to maximize my time and short travels and walks are truly welcome. Love the interiors of the place. Looks like a relaxing temporary abode.
We always look for hotels which are near to the attractions.That save us time and we can maximize our tour experiences. 🙂
What a great looking hotel that is. I would LOVE to stay there.
We this looks like a dream vacation. What a beautiful hotel
Oh my gosh, this hotel looks amazing! I would enjoy the food!
This looks beautiful and peaceful! This would be a wonderful place to stay for me! Nice to know that they have a friendly staff!
Oh my word. This hotel looks out of control ! Stunning! And can we talk about that food for a second? I’m a sucker for yummy food photos!
I always love rooftop pools. I am not sure why. And that’s cool that the breakfast buffet was included with the stay. It looked like they served some pretty amazing food there.
The food was good and we could taste different food for our 3 night stay.Pool area is comfortable and with beautiful views of Royal Palace 🙂
I’m glad your family had such a great time on your trip! I’ve always wanted to see Cambodia too – and I agree, traveling with kids means you MUST have kid-friendly accommodation!
true.Kids will decide our holiday.That’s why we are always careful when we plan our trips with the kid 🙂
I guess a lot of travellers would book their stays in this hotel through AirBnB because of significant discounts. Secondly, the mark of a good hotel is whether kids are relaxed or not. The best testimony comes from them. So from that point, Frangipani scores well up in hotel rankings.
It’s a great place to stay in when you’re in the area. Since the breakfast is free, it will definitely help save some bucks. I think it’s worth checking out.
I have never been to Cambodia. It would be nice to stay at a hotel like this if ever I were to find myself in the area. I think it’s quite nice.
Beautiful and organized hotel, a good place to stay to enjoy a holiday!
i always look for hotel close to the transportation or in the center of the city. and that hotel looks so beautiful love it so clean
OHHHHH cambodian food, how I love theeeee! I didn’t think I would – or I thought there would be a lot I could not eat, but I founddddd my way around that food, NO problem! 😉
It looks like a nice place and I love recommendations for accommodations. I added this to the list of possible places when we visit Phnom Penh.
For every vacation and staycation, nothing beats a relaxing hottub and breakfast buffet. Makes my whole stay complete 😉
