Review

Another of Phnom Penh’s impressive boutique hotel offerings, Villa Langka combines location and design with good facilities including a courtyard pool and tasteful minimalist rooms.


Location

Villa Langka is located in a quaint small street not far from the Independence Monument and has many good restaurants and bars nearby. The city’s main sights are a 5 - 10 minute tuk tuk ride away.

Architecture, ambience and people

Villa Langka makes a very good first impression with a large open lobby connecting to a larger courtyard that features a restaurant, good size pool and plenty of greenery. Minimalist decoration throughout is not dissimilar to other boutique hotels around town with colonial and Khmer elements. With 43 rooms, Villa Langka is larger than most of the other boutique hotels featured in our listing.


The basic room is good value for money but a little too small unless you’re planning a very short stay. Other rooms are a good size, very simply decorated with classic tiles, poster beds and simple Khmer flourishes.

Like many of the boutique hotels around town, Villa Langka was not purpose built. This makes for some slightly awkward use of space but that’s a small price to pay. The place feels great.

Staff are friendly and well trained. There are a number of Europeans on staff as well.


Facilities brief -
Free wifi, pool, some family friendly rooms, breakfast included.
