This is the in-town hotel of choice for flashpackers, aid workers, Cambodian businesspeople and families alike.
The Asian Hotel has immaculate, simply decorated rooms with all the mod cons Koh Kong has to offer, each with good, comfortable beds, cable tv, fridge, safe and spotless hot water bathrooms with bathtubs. It’s one of the best offerings in town. Sadly, they’ve lost their open water view, thanks to the Koh Kong City Hotel on the other side of the road. With that in mind, we feel that the back rooms offer a better deal because they will at least be quieter, especially for those on lower floors, and while the scrubby field behind is not the most attractive of views, it still beats looking at the other hotel. Recommended.
