Best hotels in Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Most visitors to Cambodia will pass through the vibrant capital city of Phnom Penh at least once. As well as having a peaceful waterfront, bustling city markets and iconic Buddhist temples, Phnom Penh is a jumping-off point for visiting the Killing Fields and Tuol Sleng Genocide Museum.
Accommodation really does cater to absolutely any budget here with dorm rooms costing as little as (CAD$8, AUD$9) a night, or luxury stays in The Great Duke costing upwards of $350 per night. For something in between, the Sun and Moon Hotel offers modern and spacious doubles at more than affordable prices.
Best for treating yourself: The Great Duke Phnom Penh
Best for mid-range: SUN & MOON Urban Hotel
Best hotels in Siem Reap, Cambodia
There's one reason and one reason only why every visitor to Cambodia flocks to Siem Reap, and that's to explore the wonder that is the ancient city of Angkor. What many don't realise is that this vast site consists of more than just Angkor Wat and actually spans over 400 square kilometres. You'll want to put aside at least two days to see the main temples.
Siem Reap is surprisingly walkable, with both budget and high-end accommodation within walking distance of the happening Pub Street, where you'll find all of the bars and restaurants oriented toward tourists.
Best for backpackers: White Rabbit Hostel
Best value for money: Angkor Sayana Hotel & Spa
Best hotels in Sihanoukville, Cambodia
Unless you manage to time your bus/boat transfer to the islands perfectly, you might need to spend a night in Sihanoukville. The city is still well in the development stage, with little to offer except boat connections to Koh Rong, Koh Rong Sanloem, Koh Ta Kiev and other islands off the south coast.
It's worth staying as close as possible to your boat port to avoid having to pay for expensive tuk-tuks around town. Other than Onederz Hostel, accommodation prices are quite inflated here, so consider Sahaa Beach Resort which provides a healthy medium of luxury amenities at mid-range prices.
Best for luxury: Xihu Resort Hotel
Best for beach access: Sahaa Beach Resort
Alternate Cambodia accommodation options
Airbnb and Stayz are a relatively new concept in Cambodia and you'll mainly find properties listed in bigger cities like Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville. More recently, guesthouses in rural locations have started to advertise on these platforms, offering the chance for a more authentic experience in off-the-beaten-track villages such as Krong Saen Monourum.
Frequently asked questions about Cambodia hotels
Where should I stay for access to the beach in Cambodia?
With Cambodia's south coast undergoing tons of development, your best bet for beach access is to head to one of the islands from Sihanoukville where you can enjoy uninterrupted days on the beach.
Koh Rong is perfect for any young travellers looking for a party atmosphere, while its sister island Koh Rong Samloem is a lot more chilled out. For a completely back-to-basic experience, jump on a boat to Koh Ta Kiev, which is one of the least developed islands and has a great selection of off-grid beachfront bungalows to choose from.
Where should I stay to get to Angkor Wat in Cambodia?
Siem Reap is the closest town to Angkor Wat, with almost all tour companies and tuk-tuk drivers operating out of the area. Some resorts such as Templation and Tara Angkor Hotel line the road heading up to Angkor Wat for easier access.
