While not a particularly inspiring place, but the paint is fresh and the sheets are clean. Every room has a television with cable, a refrigerator and comes with a couple of bottles of water. Although they ask that you turn in your key when you leave the building, we suggest holding onto it, as they leave the keys on the counter for customers to pick up themselves. They have a number of different room options and prices based on whether you have a fan, air-con, hot water and so on, so be sure to ask if you’re looking for something specific. Try to get a room at the front, with a view — there appears to be no difference in price — or on the right side of the building as you’re looking at it. The central rooms have no windows, and the rooms on the left look straight out on to the wall of the building three metres away. Next door Kolab Koh Kong has a restaurant serving Khmer and Thai dishes that are said to be good. We were told they do an excellent noodle soup — which is the best way to start the day. Hotel guests get a 10% discount on food. If Kolab is full, and you really want riverside, but can’t spring for Asian or City hotels, then you could check out Ritty’s Retreat almost next door, which has rooms for between $6 (fan, share bathroom) and $14 (air-con, private bathroom).
