Where to stay

Phnom Penh has about 50 hotels ranging in price from $15 to $200 a night. For $15

rooms are available with air-conditioning, en-suite bathroom and, in some cases,

satellite TV and video.

Cheaper options include guest houses at around $5 a night. The most popular is the

Capitol on Street 182 where a single room with en-suite bathroom costs $6 and $8

for a double.

The downstairs restaurant, open from 5.30 am to 9.30 pm, has a comprehensive menu

with main meals for around 3,000 riel and an excellent cheap fruit salad.

The Capitol also owns the nearby Happy Guest House which has rooms with shared bathroom

for $4.

The Capitol's owner, Phann Sopheap, speaks English and will arrange tours and offer

travel advice. Motos (motorbikes) and bicycles are available for rent.

"It's better than before the election," said Phann, referring to the increasing

numbers of tourists. "People feel safer and there will not be any problem in

the future. There will be peace and more tourists will come."

Other guest houses can be found round the corner on Street 111, including Seng Sokhom's

Guest House at number 22, where rooms cost $5 for a double and are popular for longer

stays. Motos and bicycles can be hired.

The Lotus Guest House near the post office by the river has rooms for $5.

The Timorda Guest House on Street 128 has air-conditioned rooms for $10 and a small

restaurant.

Slightly further away from the center of town is Sok Sin's Guest House on the small

dirt road between the old French Embassy and Calmette hospital on Monivong Blvd.

The owner is known to many foreign correspondents as "possibly the best guide

in Cambodia" for his ability to arrange almost anything.

Rooms are available at $4 a night with fan and washbasin. Rooms with shower cost

$5.

Motos and bicycles are available for hire at low rates. Breakfasts a specialty.
