Sleeping and Budget
Phnom Penh now offers a world-class selection of places to stay. There is an excellent range of guesthouses, hotels and luxury palaces to suit all wallets passing through the capital. With the surge in visitors, many new hotels are also under development. Affordable guesthouses are springing up all over the city. Some places charge as little as US$2 a room; US$5 will guarantee a small room with a fan and there are some smart new pads with air-con rooms from US$10. The best hotel deals in Phnom Penh fall in the midrange category and for around US$25 it is possible to get hooked up with air-con, satellite TV and a smart bathroom. Spend a little more cash and there are places that have a swimming pool for US$50 or under. Top-end travellers will find a selection of properties, including the grand, the bland and the boutique.
There are two popular backpacker strips, one along the eastern shore of Boeng Kak and the other around the long-running Capitol Guesthouse along St 182 and St 111, just west of Monivong Blvd. The area around Boeng Kak has improved considerably, but the rooms in these guesthouses are pretty basic compared with elsewhere in the city. For those who have seen enough of their fellow travel¬lers to last a lifetime, there are several smaller guesthouses spread across the city.
