The Quay

An ideal base in exploring Phnom Penh's vibrant energy and hidden charms, The Quay is a pleasant stroll away from top Phnom Penh landmarks such as the National Museum, the Royal Palace.

The Overview

From the outside, the hotel - a white wedge of Modernism - provides a striking contrast to the drab building from which it was hewn. Inside, Chow restaurant is all urbane curves: round black tables, white-leather Arne Jacobsen-inspired Swan chairs, cylindrical pillars and circular cut-outs in the high ceiling. The reception desk is tucked away in the back.

The slick styling in the public areas extends to the 16 so-called suites (they're actually just rooms). The ambitious design includes more white-leather Jacobsen chairs (this time the Egg), dimly lit, nightclub-esque bathrooms and asymmetrical overhead fans. Go for the more spacious panoramic rooms, which boast balconies and river views; standard rooms are half the size and don't have windows. All the rooms have Wi-Fi and obligatory flat-screen TV's.
