Exclusive 2 storey penthouse apartment right on riverside. Renovated to high standard. Ambient and welcoming space with the best views in the city. Cafes, restaurants and market are seconds away.
Excellent place with loads of space in a prime location serviced by all amenities such as coffee, bread and laundries. We had a great time.
Great experience! Frankie's place really made our trip to Phnom Pehn amazing!! Really is the perfect apartment at a great location - not sure if the pictures do it justice! Very clean too, like a hotel. Great host!
If you are going to Phnom Penh you have to stay at Francis' apartment! The apartment is very spacious and has unbelievable views of the city. Francis was a great host and even organised us a tour guide who showed us around the city.
The apartment is fantastic and in a great location - the photos don't really do it justice. The entrance to the stairwell was a little bit tricky to find but once we got into the apartment we were really impressed. It was well stocked with all the amenities needed for our stay, didn't have any problems at all. Would definitely stay again and would definitely recommend it!
Frankie is dedicated to helping local children through NGOs that he has founded or is helping, on that basis alone, we are glad to have rented his apartment. He is friendly and easy to work with.
The view is better than shown, its more than 180 degrees looking east over three converging rivers. The scened below on the waterfront park is fascinating, and the perch you have is perfect in the morning and end of the day. The apartment may be the best location in the entire city. It is right on the riverfront, so you can easily walk to most sites. Also its in an upscale (relative to Cambodia) area, so there is less of the Asia crush of dust and noise right around the apartment.
Some things you should know are: Re Entry: the apartment is three floors up and the unit is two stories itself, so the bedrooms are four stories up. It is a bit of a climb, and the interior stairway (between 3 and 4 inside the apartment) is a circular metal one which may be a bit difficult for those who are not fit. Also, the entry from the street is not elegant, it is a bit (website hidden) bathrooms: the master bathroom is on the same floor (top level) with the two bedrooms, but the second bathroom is on the main floor. The second bathroom is very small, only one person can fit in at a time. This makes it a bit clumsy for two couples, since you really have to use the master bathroom. You do not have to go through a bedroom to get to the master bathroom, and it is huge and first (website hidden) the riverfront activity: While its great fun to watch, twice a day there is fairly audible music for public exercises right across the street. The music did not bother us, as it was pleasant to listen to and not to loud. But you will likely hear it around 6 am.
All in all, aside from the points above, the place far exceeded our high expectations, and we recommend it to couples traveling together and families.
Frankie, was very helpful and the apartment was spotlessly clean. A cleaner even came during our stay, just like a hotel except with one of the best views in phnom penh! Thank-you
La location de l'appartement de Francis à Phnom Penh est une expérience parfaite sur tous les plans. Une localisation idéale avec une vue exceptionnelle sur le Tonlé Sap, une appartement en duplex très spacieux, une immense terrasse à chaque étage, une cuisine très bien équipée, un mobilier fonctionnel et agréable, une propreté impeccable.
Vraiment, je recommande sans réserve. En plus, Francis est très sympathique et fait tout pour rendre le séjour confortable et sans souci.
C'est ma première expérience avec AirbnB, je suis ravi.

I am Scottish born and live in Australia and Cambodia. I am very involved with training and education in developing nations, most especially with young disabled. This apartment was a labour of love as we renovated a slum building with broken rooms, no water or electricity into this beautiful icon while retaining and enhancing all its original architecture. We wanted others to see it is necessary to preserve and not knock down the character buildings.
