Art the homefinder's spot of the week


Located in an area popular with expats, this two-bedroom, fifth-floor apartment is less than three years old and is very nicely fitted out.

The bathroom has a bath and the living room is comfortable.

Atmosphere:
★★
This comfortable fifth-floor apartment is at the back of the building so you don’t get noise from the street and the small balcony is nice to relax on. There is also an elevator, so no mountains to climb getting home.

Utilities and service:
★★★★★
There are standard charges for electricity, but the owner provides free internet, water and cable television. The end result is the only bill you get at the end of the month is for the electricity.

Security:
★★
There are security guards on duty 24-hours a day and this apartment has the added bonus of being on the fifth floor.

Location:
★★★★
Set in the popular BKK1 area, the location is as good as it gets in Phnom Penh. Some of the city’s best bars and restaurants are only a short walk away, as is a big local market and the popular Lucky supermarket.

Value:
★★★★★ 
The owner is asking for US$850 per month, which is great value for this modern apartment in this location. There is also the added incentive of free water, cable TV and internet.

Furnishings:
★★
There is a cane sofa and chairs, wooden dining table and chairs and a wooden bed, plus a modern Western-style kitchen to churn out that home cooking.

Maintenance:
★★★★
The owner has just had all the appliances checked and everything is in fine working order. All of the appliances are less than three years old, but if something does go wrong, the owner also has skilled tradesmen on call to fix anything that needs doing.
              
As always, my rating system is based on an innovative five Star rating system.
