More on Kampot

As of early 2016, Makk is a brand spanking new boutique hotel with a view right out on to the river from its first floor bar, and within a minute’s walk of downtown Kampot.

Travelfish says:

Makk Hotel is small, with just eight rooms that are sleekly designed with plenty of smooth, moulded concrete, platform beds and smart design touches. All the rooms come with flatscreen TV, mini bar and fridge. There is plenty of storage space as well, which is too often overlooked. To be honest, it feels like it should cost more than it does. The rooms are small to mid-sized, and the downstairs ones have a small area in front with outdoor seating, though it is a little bit cramped. They do however, and unusually for Kampot, come with a bath, which may be an absolute boon for some.

Upstairs an open-sided bar provides gorgeous views over the river and on to Bokor, making this a great spot for sundowners if Rikitikitavi is too crowded for you. We wouldn’t say it’s the most soulful hotel in the world, it’s a little bit too ‘design’ for that, but it is very convenient and great value. We found the staff to be a little bit scatty, which may be just a teething problem. They seemed positively startled when we arrived asking to see the rooms. All in all though, if you’re looking for convenient and comfort, then it’s a pretty good deal.
