A hotel with a heart
What we say:
A mid-sized boutique hotel in the middle of Wat Bo Road, Soria Moria has several unique features to recommend it. The most interesting is the decision taken by the Norwegian owners to transfer ownership of 51% of the hotel to the staff. This has been part of their plan all along, and this is a hotel that takes its responsibilities to Cambodia seriously. The rooms are all a good size, spotlessly clean and unpretentiously decorated, with nice touches like a choice of hard or soft pillows. They all have TV, air-con, minibar, hairdryer, free WiFi and water, and tea- and coffee-making facilities. Almost all have a safety box, and those that don't can use lockers downstairs. Similarly, most have a DVD player, and those that don't can request one from reception. A very small gym and spa is located on the fourth floor, from which you can also access the rooftop bar and Jacuzzi. The bar is a perfect spot for sundowners, with a lovely cooling breeze to boot, and regular movie screenings are held up here too. The restaurant downstairs does a number of weekly specials, such as $1 night every Wednesday, when everything on a long list of tasty tapas dishes is only $1, including the drinks. This is hugely popular with guests and expats alike. They offer bicycle rental, the fees for which go towards sponsorship of local students and the purchase of water purifiers for nearby villages. They also sell gift cards that support these programmes. The hotel is also involved in a number of responsible tourism initiatives and a Norwegian NGO that works in the area. The lobby has a wide selection of NGO crafts for sale, including some really good quality products. Very highly recommended.
