Governors House, Phnom Penh
Cambodia, Phnom Penh and The South

Info : Governors House

The Governors House reopened in 2011 having been painstakingly renovated to a very high standard. The hotel retains its original colonial era features and provides a unique hotel in the heart of Phnom Penh. It is filled with genuine  antiques and although it is only small each floor is a warren of spaces where you can enjoy the collection of artefacts. 

The hotel itself is situated in a residential enclave of the city just 10 minutes from the main centre. The owner is very careful to employ locals, and has 3 to 4 tuk-tuk drivers associated with the hotel. You know you can go with them anywhere in the city and not get ripped off.

Each of the 12 rooms is individually designed and decorated to a high standard. You may find a private balcony in one, or a Jacuzzi in another. There is funky artwork in most, so don’t except all of the rooms to be as traditional as the elegant hallways.  There are 4 floors in this old senators house, and although they are in the lowest category, the Paris attic rooms are right at the top with small balconies and views over the whole of Phnom Penh.

If you are fan of historical hotels, whilst having a very comfortable stay then the Governors House is a great base in Phnom Penh.  With no interconnecting rooms, it’s not recommend for young families.


Superior - This is what we would describe as our standard category. These will be decent 3/4* hotels providing a really good level of service. We would generally expect them to be providing a little something extra, in terms of character, guest experience or facilities too.
