Flash digs, outstanding river views

What we say: 3.5 stars

Primarily aimed at the aid community and business traveller market, Amanjaya offers high quality rooms with outstanding river views. The striking pale-yellow hotel stands out on the corner of a major intersection, a touch of relative opulence amid large swaths of more budget-oriented accommodation. The hotel's 21 wood-floored, spotless rooms are decorated in mostly tasteful contemporary Asian style, filled with carved Cambodian rosewood furniture, and come with semi-firm, king-size beds and plush bathrooms with good-sized baths. Fresh flowers and hanging kramas complete the decor. Heavy gold drapes and thick glazing keep the traffic noise at bay, but on the upper floors you can leave the drapes and door wide open for a fresh breeze and not be too bothered by the racket outside. The porches for the smaller rooms seat no more than two people comfortably, while palatial panorama rooms are worth the extra money with their wraparound balcony offering temple and river views -- they are large enough to host a mid-sized party. Professional and very friendly staff are a major asset here. The hotel does not have a pool but still, if within your budget, Amanjaya is a fine choice. The ground floor is given over to the K-West Steakhouse, which serves big, pricey cuts of meat and offers free WiFi. The rooftop bar, Le Moon, is an excellent spot for sundowners and with cocktails at just $4.50, you could probably squeeze in more than just the one.
