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.
We stayed at Francis' apartment at the tail end of a business trip in the beginning of December. The apartment is amazing - wonderful patio area, comfortable furniture/beds, clean, tons of fans/aircon, and in a great location on the riverside near tons of restaurants/cafes/etc. Although I didn't get a chance to meet Francis in person, his responses were quick and informative and we had no troubles coordinating logistics. He was also very accommodating in terms of check in/checkout times. Highly recommend staying here - the photos on the site do not do the apartment justice!
Frank’s apartment definitely enjoys the best possible location in Phnom Penh.
Everything is within easy walking distance: the Central Market with all its seafood, fruit and vegetables, several well stocked supermarkets, the bars, cafés and restaurants of the Riverside, and of course the National Museum and the Royal Palace.
The views both from inside the apartment and the terrace over the busy Riverside and the Tonle Sap and Mekong rivers are truly impressive and we spent hours and hours just watching all that’s happening down there.
Communication prior to our arrival with the Owner was very easy and straightforward. Even if the person letting us in to the apartment didn’t speak much English, he organised a local contact for us, with whom we could sort out a few things we needed for our stay.
The apartment itself is well equipped and meets the description of the listing. Be prepared for climbing up & down the steep stairs past a restaurant kitchen, but once inside, probably you’ll be just carried away by those beautiful views, like we were. In case you’re easily disturbed by street noise and the early morning aerobics class on the Riverside, just buy some earplugs at the chemist.
Definitely a place to recommend and where we want to return on our next visit to Phnom Penh!
When we arrived at the penthouse, it looked just like in the photos. It was clean, comfortable, and decorated very stylishly. Unfortunately it rained a lot over the weekend so we were forced to stay in the penthouse for many hours, but we didn't mind because we could enjoy sitting out on the patio watching the storm. In the morning we were able to watch the people of Phnom Penh starting their day by walking along the river and exercising.
The beds were comfortable and so was the furniture. The penthouse is located in the very center of the promenade along the river so we could walk everywhere. I expected it to be noisy but actually it was surprisingly quiet with the only noise coming from the cars and motorbikes below. If I come back to Phnom Penh, I will definitely stay there again.
Our stay in Franks house was a great success and the view of the big balcony is unbeatable. The bedrooms are very comfortable and good to cool in the night with the airco's. Also the bath room is big and has a nice rain shower.
Climbing all the stairs give you the reward of an great view of the Tonlé Sap. We will certainly come back.
