Fodor's Review

Phnom Penh's ritziest hotel, first opened in 1929, was practically destroyed during the Khmer Rouge years, and was meticulously restored by the Raffles group in 1996. A colonial landmark surrounded by manicured gardens, Le Royal has an elegant lobby, a tranquil pool area shaded by massive trees, and various bars and restaurants that are a world apart from the slightly chaotic city. Guest rooms are furnished with fine Cambodian handicrafts in an elegant colonial and art-deco style, and overlook the pool or gardens. Suites in the main building include claw-foot tubs from the original 1929 hotel. The Elephant Bar is famous for its cocktails (and happy hour), and the sumptuous Restaurant Le Royal serves Khmer haute cuisine.
