Mekong Hotel

Mekong Hotel

The reliable option

More on Kompong Cham

Popular with the NGO crowd and large tour companies, the Mekong Hotel has three floors of decent, mid-sized rooms with front views over the river, and rear views across downtown Kompong Cham.

Travelfish says:

All the rooms have small balconies, and the river views all have air-con. The fan rooms at the back are a good deal, but check the fan before you take the room. The rooms face the sunset and have plenty of time to heat up in the late afternoon, making them tough to cool off if your fan isn’t up to much. The clean bathrooms have hot water showers, and the river-view ones are also slightly larger.

The staff are generally helpful and speak English, and can sort out motorbike hire and assist with onward travel. The hotel design is a little surreal once you’re inside. Vast, white corridors feel like a cross between a cathedral and The Shining. They serve up a rudimentary breakfast for $2.50.
