The living room is comfortable and  the bedrooms well lit.

Atmosphere:
??? ??
This comfortable fifth-floor apartment has the added bonus of a large roof-top terrace that would be ideal for parties, drinks at sunset of simply relaxing in the breeze and enjoying the views.

Utilities and service:
?????
There are standard charges for water and electricity, but the owner provides free internet and free parking. Cable television is available and there is a Panasonic washing machine in the apartment.

Security:
?????
There are security guards on duty 24-hours a day who man the main gate and check who comes in and out.

Location:
?????
Set in the popular BKK1 area, the location is as good as it gets in Phnom Penh. For those who enjoy fine dining, some of the city’s best restaurants are only a short walk away, as well as a big local market.

Value:
????? 
The asking price is US$600 per month, but this is negotiable with the owner. This is very good value for a fifth-floor apartment with a roof terrace. If you’re interested, call me quick because this place won’t last long on the market.

Furnishings:
????
There is a cane sofa and chairs, cane dining table and chairs, wardrobes in both bedrooms, strong, solid timber beds and lots of storage space in the kitchen, which has a refridgerator/freezer and stove. There is also a Sony TV.

Maintenance:
?????
The owner has just had all the appliance checked and everything is in fine working order. 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.
