TEAV Bassac Boutique Hotel offers sharp rooms with a modern Cambodian aesthetic and more amenities than you’d expect if you can snare an online deal, with top service from professional staff the icing on the cake. The location is a just a few minutes’ walk from the funky dining scene on Street 308, as well as an interesting local market, the White Building and, a little further away, the Independence Monument.


Easy-to-find entrance.

The entrance is just a few doors down from Phsar Kabko, a quintessential local market — just opposite is Phsar Kabko restaurant, a super-cheap local-style restaurant. Head straight past the hotel and take a right and instead you’ll hit the cluster of colourful restaurants and bars along Street 308 that are garnering all the right attention for their wonderful food and sleek cocktails.


Khmer touches make you aware of where you are.

Back at the hotel, step inside the flame-shaped entrance and a small pool with cabanas and deckchairs lies to the left — it was a little cloudy on our visit — and to the right is the small reception area, while just ahead lies the red-cushioned, breezy in-house restaurant, where the included cooked-to-order breakfast is served, as well as lunches and dinners.


Comfort, Khmer style.

Our first room, an entry level deluxe, was on the ground level. Like the others here, this standard of room has terrazzo floors and painted, clean-lined furniture in calming greys, with pops of maroon accents. Murals of apsara dancers on the wall lend a refined and arty feel, while touches like bathrooms, slippers, a spacious desk, fast WiFi, tea- and coffee-making facilities, scales (hmmm, no thanks!) and plenty of toiletries definitely felt like this was a category worth more than the $49.50 we paid (booking through Agoda); the rack rate is US$125 and you shouldn’t pay this (if you can’t get a cheaper rate, we wouldn’t recommend this as better alternatives are on offer). Our bed was comfortable and everything was spotless.


More interesting arty touches in the public spaces.

We couldn’t work out how to turn our bathroom light on, and housekeeping couldn’t either, so we were immediately upgraded to a premier double upstairs, with apology (it actually seemed like the light had merely blown). This was unexpected but welcome, as while the other room was similar, it was a little larger and instead of just a shower had a huge bath — though so yawning, in the end, it felt too greedy to fill it when there was a pool just downstairs, after all. Some rooms at this level have balconies.

Noise here was a slight issue, as our room looked directly into our neighbour’s lounge room. Though everyone seemed to go to bed early, if you’re looking to sleep during the day this will be an issue. As well, the piped music in the hotel was so loud at one point we thought it was being piped directly into our room — when we opened the door to ask housekeeping (we really were high maintenance!) whether this was the case, it was turned down within a minute along with a call from reception apologising.


There’s an on-site spa which we didn’t use, as well as bicycle rental, which could come in handy if you want to explore on your own.

Each time we left the hotel the front desk manager remembered my name — this has only otherwise happened to me at the Oriental in Bangkok and while there’s just 19 rooms at TEAV Bassac, this was still impressive.

If you’re looking to get the most out of Phnom Penh’s new chic dining scene, and you want your creature comforts, this hotel is ideally located. While there’s a bar attached to the restaurant, it was quiet during our two-night stay, so this isn’t really the sort of place to meet other travellers; and if you’re after some riverside scenery and action, this probably isn’t the best choice either.

Our only criticisms were the slightly cloudy pool and noisy neighbours; otherwise, if you can snare an OTA online rate, at less than half the rack rates, Teav Bassac is a very appealing option. While they are similar, don’t confuse this property with its 12-room sister on Street 310.
