“best breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 December 2013

Good hotel in the middle of the city center. Clean rooms and bathroom with good shower. You can use the pool of their sister hotel Delux Villa for 3 dollar.
The breakfast is also at the Delux Villa and was the best breakfast we had in 3 weeks. Fresh fruit and juice. Coffe and your choice of american, continental or deluxe breakfast. The continental for example had waffles, donut, pancake, breadpudding and toast. The american breakfast consisted of eggs, bacon, sausage, toast with ham and cheese and tomato's.

We stayed here two nights as a base to explore in and around Battambang. The reception area looks fairly impressive, there are wooden carvings and paintings. We were also given a free banana when checking in.

The room itself was fine with a large bed, big window ( with bars?!) and space to spread out our stuff. The bathroom wasn't in great shape and in general the place was looking tired and used.

However the main issue was the service. The staff were very keen to know our 'plans' and to try and get us in a tuk tuk - there was a constant horde outside the place.

Upon check-out they asked if we had used the mini bar, which we hadn't, and they sent someone to check. This felt unnecessary and as if they don't trust their customers. They again tried to get us in a tuk tuk but we politely declined as it was only a 10 minute walk. The tuk tuk then followed us down the street and we had to tell him again that we didn't need transport. We really didn't appreciate being harassed in this way.

At reception there is a hand written note saying that you get a free scarf on check-out. Don't bother getting one, they smell terrible!

Overall our stay was ok but the service lets the place down.

We arrived here after our trip through Thailand. In Cambodia you get a lot more for less money. Eventhough Battambang is not the most beutiful city on the planet ;) we really enjoyed our one night stay because the staff was very friendly and accomodating and the standards of the hotel are high. In short, good place to stay for one or two nights.

We initially headed to Tomato guesthouse but they only had dorms (it was the big holiday and the place was deserted, so that seems very odd, more likely no staff to clean the private rooms) so we went next door to this place. The staff did often ask if we wanted to go on a tuk tuk anywhere but to be fair, I think all tourists really 'do' here is go on a tour of the old bamboo railway and mooch around town. Other than that the room was very nice - but slightly let down by an out of place small and minimalistic bathroom - and the staff were very friendly and got our bus tickets sorted for us no problem. Good value place all in all and would be happy to stay here again.

The Guesthouse is intro by a tuk tuk driver when pick up us from the bus station.
We arrive and saw the room is clean so we decide to stay since the night was late.
The tuk tuk driver keep ask my friend to take the tour for the next day which charge $20/ person.
Hotel boy bring us to room and close the door inform us that the tuk tuk driver charge the price was expensive! Normal day tour only $10 per tuktuk . We reject the driver for the driver . but we get the tuk tuk from street after bargain for the day tour package ,IT is only $8 for per tuktuk. :)
anyway thanks to the Hotel Staff. He recommend us some nice food stall too. We went to tomato guesthouse have a jug of beer ($2) too.

Our double room with a/c and hot water was big enough with a comfortable bed but 18 $ is too much for such a city as battambang. And mostly the personnel was not helpful at all: we booked to them a bus for 7am and therefore had to wake up around 5.30 but when we showed up in the lobby they just tell us that the bus is full and that we must wait for the next one at 8.30am. Couldn't they warn in advance ratjer than letting people waking up at dawn? We then decided to take a tuk tuk and check by ourselves at the bus station where we could in 2 mins find some seats in the 7am bus!
In short: avoid this place if possible and try the tomato guesthouse (1 block away) which seemed much more welcoming.
