About This Listing
Sweeping river views in prime location with restaurants, cafes below. Renovated 2 bedroom with kitchen, bathroom and great balcony.
Awesome place, excellent location, close to everything. We used the hosts recommended tuk tuk driver who was fabulous. Host even arranged him to pick us up from airport. The place is big, clean, and had everything you need. I would certainly recommend this place.
Although we never got to meet Frank, we were delighted at the accessibility and beauty of his apartment. It was easy to find. It's perfectly located on the banks of the Mekong. It's a huge apartment that easily fits 4, but the best part is the balcony, where you can spend hours on the couches watching the foot traffic and reading a book. The location is very accessible. We loved walking around the city and Frank's place was an ideal starting point. We can't wait to visit again.
The apartment is spacious and good location,
Owner communication is fast, the only thing is when i enter Cambodia, my mobile internet is not working therefor have some delay in communication.
About the the apartment, we like the loft design and the spacious veranda. The view is good. Interior design is nice.
The entrance of the apartment is a narrow alley, it is not the experience like the entering the grand lobby of hotel. But it is part of the experience of airbnb experience, i have no complaint about this.
This apartment is good for family stay.
Despite being in Australia, Frank's organisation and communication was beyond reproach. The collection and dropping off of keys was easily achieved, and Frank responded immediately to any queries or questions. I left things behind in his apartment, which I needed to recover too, and Frank was very helpful and patient in helping me accomplish this.
The apartment itself is huge: tastefully decorated, has a fitted kitchen, and could easily accommodate four people. The best bit is the spacious balcony area which is perfect to watch the Phnom Penh'ers on the riverside exercising, playing games and performing Tai Chi moves at sunset and sunrise.
The location is perfect for nightlife, restaurants and within walking distance to many attractions such as the Royal Palace. And further afield attractions are easy to access due the number of tuk tuks and motorcycle drivers. Although, I would strongly recommend using Thon for your trips, Frank's friendly tuktuk driver-friend, as he speaks excellent English and is courteous, kind and honest.
My family and I spent one month at Frank's apartment and we would highly recommend a stay. It is a great place to come back to after the heat of the street and chill. The balcony provides the perfect opportunity to observe and absorb the constant flow of Phnom Penh life by the river. It is located within a heartbeat of a wide variety of restaurants where you can dine on numerous range of cuisines, relax and if need be accumulate information and knowledge of the city. Although Frank was not in Cambodia during our stay we felt he was always nearby and extremely helpful when it came to answering any questions we had to pose,this was greatly appreciated. We would like to thank Frank for the pleasant and delightful experience of our stay in Phnom Penh.
Bien qu'absent, notre hôte s'est arrangé pour nous faire accueillir par une personne très avenante. Heureusement car les adresses ne correspondent pas et nous avons pu communiquer par mail.
L'entrée de l'immeuble est déprimante : étroite, sale (des rats circulaient au rez-de-chaussée...), les escaliers sont étroits et les marches très hautes!
Heureusement, le logement était tel que décrit : confortable, bien équipé, avec une terrasse et une vue surplombant le fleuve.
D'autre part l'appartement est bien situé en centre-ville et il est facile de circuler à pied ou en tuk-tuk.

About the Host, Francis
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.
