Beautiful rooms and pool

What we say: 3.5 stars

The Pavilion, housed in a colonial residence walking distance from both the Independence Monument and the Grand Palace, will appeal to anyone looking to stay in a charming monument to Cambodia's colonial period. Surrounded by a high white plaster wall, behind a heavy wooden gate flanked by elephant statues, the courtyard, with a bar and restaurant and tables surrounded by trees and a large swimming pool in the centre, is a popular hangout for local expats. Be warned that you will be forced to share the pool with others, although once there are about 20 visitors or so access to more is denied. The high-ceilinged, breezy lobby, painted white and tastefully decorated, indicates that this boutique hotel is cosier and cheaper than four-star hotels in town like Raffles, but equally classy. Spacious rooms are lovingly decorated and designed with a flourish -- tied sashes mark entryways and low-slung salas beckon in the heat of the afternoon. All come with air-con, TV and hot water. Some rooms have a shared balcony, partitioned by palms, overlooking the pool, and these rooms should be your first choice. Expect all the woes however that come with an old building. We hear the water pressure is often lousy, there are occasional leaks and sometimes the power sockets can be shoddy. In 2008, the hotel finished construction on adjacent private pool/Jacuzzi rooms, each with their own small patio and surrounded by noise-muffling trees and bushes. If you're looking for a special spot for a unique taste of Phnom Penh, the Pavilion should be on your short list. All prices include breakfast.
