Phnom Penh, Cambodia
Rooms come in different styles with an overall emphasis on
business travellers - this is, after all, the Foreign
Correspondents’ Club. The larger Deluxe Rooms - with
balconies - are furnished with warm reproduction teak furniture,
while the smaller Standard Rooms plump for a clean
business-hotel look with near-black varnish on the unadorned
built-in wardrobe, and a spacious desk that wouldn’t be out
of place in a Grand Hyatt. We'd definitely go for the former rooms
if budget and availability allow.
Beds are large, low and comfortable with plenty of raw-silk cushions so you can lounge during the day. Above the bed, each room has a panorama picture of the Angkor Wat landmark that gives it its name.
Bathrooms are very well appointed, all in a clean 5-star chain style, with indirect fluorescent and halogen lighting, glass partitions and vast mirrors. Some have shower cubicles, others large bathtubs, in either case with a rain-shower head. The toilets, bless them, come with a water gun, and if that’s not enough there are also 2 rolls of toilet paper to unspool, simultaneously or alternately, up to you.
