Raffles Hotel Le Royal
An historic Landmark reinterpreted in a bold contemporary style. Raffles Hotel Le Royal is a place where an elegant past lives on in the vibrant, trendy present - just like the city you will explore from this comfortable haven of calm.
An imposing statement of Khmer, Art Deco and French Colonial style, Hotel Le Royal originally opened its grand doors in 1929. It reopened as Raffles Hotel Le Royal in 1997 after a sensitive extension and refurbishment. To protect this piece of Cambodia’s heritage, local artisans were commissioned to recreate painted ceilings, decorative beaten copper crests and outdoor sculptures.
Located in the heart of Phnom Penh, only 30 minutes’ drive from Phnom Penh international Airport and within easy access of the city’s attractions such as the Royal Palace, Central Market, Russian Market and the National Artefacts Museum. Raffles Hotel Le Royal showcases Cambodian charm and elegance.
Each of the spacious 175 guestrooms, apartment and suites are tastefully appointed with Cambodian objectd’art style furnishings. All suites and rooms located at the Heritage building are with the original claw-footed bathtubs reflecting the period architecture of the building and the long heritage of impeccable service.
The hotel is built around a central private courtyard with two swimming pools surrounded by frangipani-lined tropical garden. Cambodian cuisine is an essential part of the Raffles experience. Combining the best of local culture and cuisine with dishes from around the world, each of the restaurants and bars has its own unique atmosphere and setting.
Raffles is very much part of the history of Phnom Penh. It has stood for 90 years and its walls reflect many of the times it has witnessed, yet while it honours its past, the hotel embraces the city’s dynamic future, continuing to be a focal point of the capital’s business and social scene.
