Je remercie Jonathan pour son accueil et se disponibilité. C'est lui qui s'est chargé d'apporter nos bagages à l'arrivée, et qui s'est occupé de notre chauffeur(en retard!) au départ. Le studio est fort bien situé, vaste et propre, et la wi fi fonctionne bien! Nous avons été très satisfaits de notre séjour.
Great studio, closely to all must sees. Pick-up was perfectly organised, as well as the support of the housekeeper. We didn't meet the owner, but that was not an issue at all. Emails were answered straight away. Spacious studio, very clean, with all equipment you need. Don't bring too much luggage, as the studio is on the 3th floor, so a lot of stairs. One small remark; the studio is big enough to host four people, but the spare beds are very uncomfortable, so not to recommend. The fixed bed is perfect! We really enjoyed our stay.
Jonathan and his friends are incredibly nice. The apartment is located
in the center of city and just few block from huge shipping mall. Jonathan invited me to his house for lunch. He is also successful business man, therefore, if you are interested, he can hear about Cambodia business as well
Jin Eng was a fantastic host during our 2 nights stay. He is friendly and provides timely advice on the key attractions in Phnom Penh. His place is spacious and clean and is located next to a very nice Aeon Mall where you can easily get groceries. We will definitely stay at this place when we return. Thank you for hosting us!
Unfortunately I never met Jonathan myself. But all questions I ever had were straight away answered very friendly by mail.
The flat was really great and very clean with a large balcony towards the street. And the area was perfect. Walking distance to the centre and close to a lot of restaurants, bars and cafes and nearby several convenience stores.
Within four weeks were I had been living in Jonathan apartment I felt myself very comfortable and would recommand it to others.
Great location, room was clean and modern, balcony is a real bonus. Jonathan was very helpful and attentive - we didn't need anything in particular but he would have assisted in any way he could if we had.
Jonathan's apartment is very large, enormous in fact! It is great to have lots of room. The washing machine was an absolute bonus for us as we are travelling for a while.
The fridge was stocked with beers, which was much appreciated and a lovely touch.
Jonathan was quick to respond to our requests for a power board to connect the fridge and kettle at the same time and to our request for lighter bedding. He was also attentive to check that everything was ok.
The wifi was also fast.
The only downside of the apartment was that it is on a busy road. If you are a light sleeper like me, this probably is not the place for you. The area is also not that great, but you are never far from anything with a Tuk Tuk.

About the Host, Jin Eng (Jonathan)
I am a Malaysian who has been working in Phnom Penh, Cambodia for almost 2 years. In fact, I enjoy doing interior designing. Fortunately, I have this spare apartment on hand and then it has become a training ground for me to put my inspiration into practice.
Travel is one of the most important goals in my life. Mere in the year of 2013, I had traveled to several cities like Beijing, Chengdu, Yangon, Bagan, Mandalay, Yogyakarta, Bali, Tokyo, Kota Kinabalu, Hong Kong, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok, Seoul, Chicago and Minneapolis. I understand the need of a traveler quite well. Besides, I don't really enjoy staying in a confined hotel room, in fact, I prefer a place to stay which is homey, or in short, Home Away From Home.
Hence, I am inspired to convert this Khmer old style apartment into a cool place for travelers to stay during their short trip to Phnom Penh. I really hope you would enjoy the stay in my apartment and appreciate a lot if you could leave a review after your stay.
Lastly, welcome to Phnom Penh!
