We just stayed one night, but we liked the place a lot. The staff was very friendly, although their knowledge of English sometimes fell short.
The room was big, albeit with a rather odd shower construction. It works (but beware of running of out of hot water); the bed was nice.
Breakfast was served by the table, but due to our haste we couldn't try it all. What we got was good.
All in all we can just agree with what the previous reviews have already stayed - a good place to stay at!

We stayed here two nights. The owner is English and has a well trained staff. The building looks really nice. As well as the swimming pool and the cabins/rooms behind it. What differentiates this hotel is the lounge and bar area. They have nice lounge chairs with soft cushions. And have candles burn on each table in the evening. The bar looks also nice and adds to the atmosphere,(and we are no bar people). Next to the lounge area is the terras where they have breakfast in the morning with nice table cloths. We had dinner once, and my chicken curry was really delicious. You can also sit inside, still open but with a roof for when it rains. The cabins have a wooden construction with tiles on it as a roof. The walls are made from wood, so it does leak in noise from the neighbouring restaurants. Again the eye is in the detail, the bathroom stocks sufficient very decorative amenities. Next to the reception they have some souvenirs for sale. All in all a pleasant place.

Great rooms, well appointed very comfortable. Welcoming and professional staff. A great bar with good cold beer, good cocktails and friendly staff. The Restaurant is a lovely space adjacent to the cool pool and bar. The menu gives you the chance to take a break from local fare (not that it is not also offered) with some great dishes on offer.
The owner and host knows what he's doing!
Highly recommended.

One of the relatively new hotels in Battambang. Well located with great decor, furnishings and the bed was very comfortable. Manager/owner was a nice friendly guy who made us feel welcome.
This is a festival time in Cambodia and the monks from the nearby Wat were chanting from very early in the morning - the sound was invasive. One should not be critical of local culture and we did not, however it did interrupt sleep.
The only real negative was the food - Well as we only stayed there one night we did not eat a meal but did order a snack delivered to the room - this consisted of french fries and three large kind of spring rolls - both components were dripping with grease and the rolls were dreadful - a culinary mistake - should not be repeated
Aside from that we were happy with our brief stay!

Room Tip: Dont order the spring rolls unless they've changed their presentation. Use the ear plugs when m...

An absolute gem of a hotel which is tucked down a side street. The whole place is lovely - from the large reception (with a little shop for trinkets) to an outdoor bar/eating area, restaurant and a welcoming pool with sun loungers, towels and straw hats. The gardens are immaculate and tropical and the rooms are fabulous - tastefully decorated with everything you could including a fresh fruit basket, TV, aircon, toiletries, hair dryer and the biggest shower I have ever seen - big enough to put a 5 person bench seat in there (for what reason I am not sure!). The beds were comfortable (twin singles) and we had a balcony overlooking the pool. It wasn't the quietest place with a bit of noise from nearby restaurants (maybe a karoke bar?) but earplugs were supplied albeit not used. The restaurant was wonderful with some excellent food and the cocktails were cheap and delicious. It was such a lovely place that after we arrived in the early afternoon we didn't even leave the hotel prefering to lounge around the pool, drink cocktails and have a wonderful feed in the restaurant. Battambang itself doesn't have too much to offer but an interesting place to wander around and enjoy for being so unspoilt even though it is Cambodia's second biggest city!

me and my husband arrived directly from Siem Reap with no reservation (we always prefere to check the place before); the hotel is far from main road, clean, and staff very very friendly. Has a pool and a nice bar were drink something, also a restaurant. No noises inside 'cause the room are not close to the bar. The room was nice with garden view, good bathroom with a very big shower. Breakfast fresh and good. I also went to a cooking class in the afternoon (propose form the hotel) in a family restaurant in the city and was wonderful. I went on my own (my husband hates cook) and when he did not see me come back (for a misunderstanding he expected it finished at 7pm instead 8pm) the staff help him: check the time with the restaurant and assure him I was safe!!!! Ah Ah Ah.....Bambu Hotel was nice and good special thanks to all the staff

It's been 18 months since I've been in Battambang and despite the town thankfully changing little Bambu has matured into a well oiled laid back hotel.
The restaurant was the only place in town my kids would eat and with a varied menu was great for me and my wife too.
Pat, the owner, gave good advice on day trips, the school they sponsor was by far the best day out.
Highly recommended.
