Teav Bassac Boutique Hotel & Spa Phnom Penh Review

The Teav Bassac Boutique Hotel & Spa has a wonderful location in what’s likely to be the most hip area of Phnom Penh right now. It’s in a small alley, away from the traffic, yet just minutes away from some of the best bars and restaurants in the city.

I had made two one-night bookings through two different OTAs and this usually creates so much confusion that I can’t even check in. Not here; both reservations were found in seconds and the staff had actually gone to the trouble of looking up both reservations BEFORE I arrived.

The building does the boutique hotel name justice. It’s just beautiful, with many design elements that even a W hotel has trouble getting right. Plus I loved how the pool was designed (even if it was small).

My room was a bit more basic than at the InterContinental Phnom Penh, but it was in good shape. The bed was huge and the mattress was perfect.

There was an internet router in the room and it was stable at 3 Mbit during the whole time of my stay – the fastest internet in town!

The bathroom looked cool and had a big rain shower, but as with the InterContinental it just never worked properly. There would be no hot water for 15 minutes (then it would eventually start) and the drain would not work, so after 5 minutes the water would flood the bathroom.

I did not bother to ask ‘engineering’ after my poor experience at the InterContinental. Somehow Cambodia seems to be the country of dismal plumbing, as pretty much every place I went had similar issues.

The hotel is happy to organize trips and also found me a motivated tuk tuk driver for the airport ride. I found the service of the hotel staff to be excellent while understated.

Rates were just around $55, which I found to be a great deal given the perfect location.
