Hotels in Cambodia

Cambodia has hotels for every kind of traveler at every level of budget. From backpacker's hostels and guesthouses to 5-star masterpieces, Cambodia offers a plethora of options.

The amount of money paid, however, usually reflects the quality of accommodation, and it is normally more comfortable and convenient to stay in 4- or 5-star hotels.

Cambodia's tourism industry is newer than in other countries in Southeast Asia, but even so, there are plenty of options for quality accommodation in the cities.

Some of the hotels mentioned in this article are beautiful colonial-style hotels, new luxury resorts, or international hotel chains. We only recommend hotels that provide quality service and ensure the comfort of our travelers.

How to choose hotels

The hotel that is best for you will often depend on the number of travelers and their ages.

For example, for families with children, it is better to book hotels that are a little distance from downtown, rather than those in the city center. This way, there is less noise and traffic, and families can better relax away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

On the other hand, solo travelers often prefer to stay in the heart of downtown, where they can meet other travelers and be close to the main attractions. Couples often prefer to stay in beautiful secluded areas away from the city center.

Travelers should look out for the details most important to them and their fellow travelers. For families, free breakfast is often a good way to start the day, while others may find different amenities to be more essential to their comfort and happiness while traveling.
