On the northern riverside end, beyond the great dividing line of Street 108, Pillar Hotel offers decent-sized, comfortable and stylish rooms most of which have good views down the river. They were in the throes of installing a lift into the five-storey building when we last visited in late 2015, so that butt-frightening climb to the top will soon be as easy as pushing a button.

The staff here are fantastically efficient and eager to help. There are streetside covered tables and chairs at which to enjoy breakfast and a coffee, though the increased traffic in this area makes this a questionable sort of pleasure.

Plenty of pillars.

Plenty of pillars… and an incoming lift.

Pillar Hotel has two kinds of rooms. The smaller ones on the side dont have great views, but are great value, while the larger, more romantically decorated front rooms have much better views down the river. All rooms come with WiFi access, a fridge, TV, air-con, safe and kettle, with firm mattresses and some modern-trad fusion artwork on the walls. Bathrooms are well-sized and clean, if ordinary.

Boat goes left, boat goes right

The hotel’s location gives you all the benefits of centrality and the riverside, though with a smaller helping of sleaze and chaos on the side. Youre still within walking distance of the Royal Palace, National Museum, and icons like the FCC. You dont necessarily need to travel that far though to pick up on some of Phnom Penhs better offerings. Virtually next door, Limoncello offers some of what we are repeatedly told is the best pizza in Phnom Penh, the Night Market and Wat Phnom are just a hop, skip and a jump away, and youre not far from some of the citys top eating spots, including Vans, Chinese House and The Exchange. Almost opposite is Titanic Restaurant, a fairy-lit gilded eatery that attracts visitors like moths with its well-cooked Khmer dishes and apsara dancers.
