Staying at the Sovann Phum Hotel in Kampong Chhnang, Cambodia
So I drove to the river-front area but could not find the guesthouse that should be there, but on the way back over the 2 km long road that connects the new part and the riverside part I saw another new looking hotel called something like "Songsamsern Hotel" but at closer inspection it seems to be a short-time hotel.
So back to the 2 hotels that I saw when I drove into town (along route #5) "The Asia Hotel" and "Sovann Phum Hotel" (next to each other). I did choose the SVP hotel, because it has a restaurant next to it. It's a new Chinese look-like hotel with about 80 rooms on 4 or 5 floors. Do not take rooms on the top-floor or in front as they are too hot. But the rooms at the first floor are good, not big but clean with TV, Airco and hot-water. The restaurant next to the hotel serves good food for breakfast, lunch and dinner (until 21:00). In the lobby is a computer with free internet. In front of the hotel is free parking, but the hotel has no swimming pool. Price range of 10-15us$.
