Phnom Penh has an increasing number of guesthouses and hotels catering for all pockets and tastes, from basic rooms to opulent colonial-era suites, and no matter when you arrive, you should have no difficulty finding a room – though the very cheapest places fill quickly. If you intend to stay for more than a couple of nights, it’s worth asking for a discount at guesthouses and mid-range places. With deluxe accommodation you’ll often get a better deal by booking online or taking a package. Free wi-fi is generally offered in all but the most expensive hotels.
