Look for an apartment for rent in these areas of Phnom Penh

When seeking an apartment for rent in Phnom Penh, as opposed to condos or serviced apartments, it is a good idea to focus on the older shop house or flat house buildings.

Before the recent upsurge in the construction of borey and condos in the capital, renting an apartment was really the only option for an expatriate who could not afford to rent a villa in Phnom Penh.

Advantages and disadvantages of renting an apartment in Phnom Penh

The advantage in renting an apartment in Phnom Penh is that the properties are often in excellent central locations, such as Daun Penh, Olympic, Chamkarmon and Russian Market, and very affordable. The disadvantage is that often the buildings have an uninviting entrance and would appear to be a bit dilapidated.

However, renovation is relatively cheap in Cambodia, and many landlords have upgraded the interior of their apartments to create a very pleasant and modern living space. With both Cable TV and internet cheap and readily available, apartments in Phnom Penh can become little oases of peace and tranquillity in all the bustle around you – especially if you choose to rent an apartment in a shop house close to one of the markets.

Finding a city centre apartment for rent in Phnom Penh

Few capital cities around the world have so many affordable apartments to rent in the downtown area. This means that you can easily find an affordable apartment, particularly if you are looking for a one- or two-bed option close to either your work or to the capital’s great dining options. Also, as furniture shops in Phnom Penh are equally inexpensive, you can easily flex your own interior design skills. Renting an apartment in Phnom Penh really can be a very creative process.

Normally, the shop house buildings have a mix of owners on different floors, which can be either an advantage or disadvantage depending on your perspective – and your neighbours – but you can even find some whole buildings available to rent.
