No frills, basic accommodation, but often in the most exciting of places
Our rating: Superior | Property style: Boutique Hotel
The Pavilion is a simple 10 room guesthouse centrally located near to Phnom Penh Royal Palace, offering great views of the Botum Royal Pagoda. Allegedly built by the Queen Kossamak in order to live closer to the Royal Pagoda so she could go there to pray anytime, this 1920s colonial villa combines French colonial and Khmer styles in an unusual way. Large lavish gardens and a swimming pool complement the 10 simple yet stylish rooms, most with their own garden or terrace. There is also a restaurant and bar in the garden.
