Massive triple rooms
What we say:
Next door to the Mekong Palace Hotel, the Chinese-style Indochine is very clean and well-kept, but rather featureless. Be warned -- especially if you're staying on the fifth floor – that there's no elevator. Some of the rooms are huge: The triple on the ground floor is massive, though because it's on the interior of the building and has a window facing indoors it's quite dark. For $25 per night, the hotel's river view double rooms are some of the cheapest in the area overlooking the water. These rooms are much nicer than the singles and doubles in the rear of the building which lack windows. Indochine has a second branch away from the river (see Indochine 2 Hotel) which is the cheaper, better and newer of the two.

Great value for the location
Difficult to fault in terms of value for money. $10 gets you a small double room without windows but with a/c, fan, tv and hot water shower. OK, so the room is a shoebox but it was clean and for the location I don't think you'll get much better for that money. Â Rooms with 2 beds are $15. They have 2 riverfront rooms which are very spacious with 2 queen sized beds and these are $25. I've stayed here several times - usually in the $10 rooms but also in the $25 ones. I do sleep well but I've never found noise an issue and even in the riverfront ones is was fairly quiet as in addition to the window, the balcony is also glazed creating a double layer of sound proofing. Note - They now only have rooms on the ground and first floors as the floors above that have been converted into apartments so no 5 floors to climb. Also, there's no restaurant now. No WiFi but one computer that can be used for free in the lobby. Email reservations not possible - phone only.

Clean, Great Location and Pric
Stayed in a huge spotless double with 2 queen beds a large bathroom and a view of the river. Well worth the extra $7 compared to the interior windowless singles. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. They took care of laundry, arranged airline tickets to Siem Reap (same price as I found on the internet)and arranged a taxi to airport for a 4AM pick up(price fixed at $7). There is no elevator - if that is important to you.

The room is small and sparse but clean. The refrigerator in the room was great for cold drinks. The air conditioning was amazing (If fact it was so strong that we had to turn it off because we got cold). The hotel staff spoke good English. The laundry service was amazing; they got all of the dirt stains out of all of our clothing. The breakfast at their restaurant was great. Now for the not so great stuff. There is no elevator, walking up and down 5 flights of stairs after a day of lots of walking is not fun. The walls are extremely, extremely thin. I had to ask someone in the room two doors down from me to turn down his TV (that he had at normal volume). The power went out 5 times in the 3 days we were there, but it came back on after a few minutes every time. Don’t use their taxi service, its overpriced. We paid $15 a night for a queen size bed and $7 for airport pick-up. I’d stay there again, but I’d bring earplugs with me next time.
