The Amanjaya Pancam Hotel has set itself up primarily as a business hotel. A great location and large tasteful rooms make it a good option for travellers wanting a conventional hotel experience. Expensive for a hotel without a pool.

Review

The Amanjaya’s 21 rooms are spacious, tastefully done and well located on the Phnom Penh riverfront. A popular business hotel that also sees plenty of travellers through its doors.


Location

Along the riverfront at Sisowath Quay. The Amanjaya is within walking distance of many of the city’s best bars and restaurants as well as major sights, the Royal Palace and the National Museum.


Architecture, ambience and people

While the Amanjaya building exterior has little to recommend it, things definitely improve once you step inside. Most common areas are attractive though they have a business hotel feel. Suites are a generous size with king size beds. Room decor is also appealing with timber flooring and Khmer style fittings. All rooms include a work space, views and plenty of natural light.

Expect some quirkiness not uncommon in Cambodia or elsewhere - strange messy alcoves off common areas, the occasional confronting odour, as well as street noise from the riverfront.

Staff are friendly, efficient and helpful.

Amanjaya stands up for a business visit or a short stay but we definitely prefer the city’s boutique offerings.


Facilities brief -
Free wifi, satellite TV, restaurant, bars - no pool.
