Functional and clean
A formulaic, typical Cambodian offering, Heng Heng offers clean, fan and air-con rooms, with private bathrooms and, for those at the front, a river view.
The whole atmosphere is somewhat functional and charmless however. The rooms are of a moderate size — larger than Heng Heng II — clean, with good sized TV (stations unclear), free WiFi and, depending on the room, a river view, but overall the identically priced nearby Heng Heng II is far better value. Note, somewhat bizarrely, the riverfront rooms are $15 regardless of whether you want a fan or air-con -- bargain it down if you can! A shared river view balcony adds to the value.
