The Independence Hotel is an historic hotel located 5 km outside of Sihanoukville, Cambodia. The original hotel, completed in 1964, was designed by French architects Leroy and Mondet as a conscious landmark to demonstrate the country's optimism following independence from France. A large white edifice perched above the sea, the building was known locally as bprahm-bpel jawn, or "seven storeys", as it was by far the tallest in the country. During this time the hotel's guests included Catherine Deneuve and Jacqueline Kennedy, and the hotel served as a "show piece" for the Royal Family, with King Norodom Sihanouk taking responsibility for the hotel's original interior design.
Not much to do around here! Beach littered! Hotel too big, loads of stairs to get to pool, beach, room and restaurant! Europeans have to eat in a fly infested exposed food restaurant, max 2 night stay recommended - bed rock hard like sleeping on the floor! People don't speak or seam to understand English? Other parts of Cambodia much better than here, but if you like casinos or diving then this place is perfect 🤣
We got the small villa for our stayed there. For the price that we paid I would expect a better room and level of Cleaness. The swimming pool (both of them) are pretty small and werent that clean (I saw a dead bug in the pool by the beach). In the morning there were many dead bee in front of our room. I would give a 3 stars just because we enjoyed the surrounding environment.
The hotel is beautiful and the scenery is great. One of the best resorts we've stayed at a in Cambodia and yet the upkeep on the facility is sub-par. For a luxury resort the maintenance on air-cons and furniture in the houses could be much better.
Eco standard room. Room is clean and neat, though it's quite small and maybe not convenient for tall people cuz the ceiling is very low. Good service, large area, located far from the centre of Sihanoukville so it is suitable for those who want to relax.
It has nice beach and location. Nevertheless I strongly advise don't waste time in Chinese Sihanoukwille and take trip to islands!
