We have stayed at this for hotel several days. The rooms are clean, the breakfast is good and the staff is realy nice and very helpful. We needed to organized something, they helped. The owner said "don't worry about this" and he really meant it. We recommend this hotel with his emphatic staff.

Rooms are spacious and very clean and the furniture in the lobby and rooms was gorgeous. The staff goes out of their way to be accommodating - the day I checked out I was handed a packed lunch, and the concierge rode with me on the tuk tuk to make sure I got on the right boat.
Wifi is fast and reliable, and the breakfast was good too.
The only complaint I have is that you can hear music from the girlie bars up the street (next to the UN office), but that quiets down around 11pm.

Imagine you are in a South East Asian country, near the equator. It's hot. It's humid. And you've just been on some 6 hour day trip/track to see some temple. Your undies are wet from sweat, there's a white rim of dried salt on your hat brim, and you're not sure if you have an awesome tan or if it is just dust fused with sweat.

What would you be looking forward to coming back to your hotel?

Aside from not having been robbed by housekeepers, I would imagine you would have answered "AIR-CON and SHOWER"!

The good news is that this hotel has the standard air con of course, but most importantly, THE SHOWER IS AMAZING!!!1one

Most hotels we have been to on our trip had dismal showers, barely enough to get wet, let alone clean off the days worth of fusion sweat /sunscreen /DEET /grime. At another hotel they even had hot water problems that I had to resort to boiling the kettle to fill a tub to have a good warm clean.

We were lucky (maybe) and got upgraded for free to a King Suite on arrivial. The shower in our room had a dual split of a mobile head and a large fixed shower head. The water delivered through the heads were large volume, generous, and strong in stream. It may be that our shower had a problem with drainage, but it felt like the shower was going to flood most times as there's just that much water coming out. The hot water is almost instantaneous, and we never had problems with not having hot water.

Aside from that the King Suite we had was very nice.

Hand carved wooden furnishing is found throughout the hotel, including our room. The room had a large king bed which was slightly hard for my liking, but all hotels in this region appear to share this.

There's a plasma TV in the room with local and cable channels. There were frequent power outages in the Battambang city proper (not where the hotel is), which meant the cable supplier was down most days during daytimes. But I think this is a regional problem and not of the hotel.

There's complimentary water, a small basket of chips and instant noodle which ranges from USD$0.5 to $1.5. There's a small bar fridge with soft drinks and beer. And on arrival we were sent some complimentary fresh fruit.

There's also an in-house safe for those inclined to use such things.

There's a balcony accessible through the window, which houses the air-conditioner, but there's enough room for a couple of people to stand and enjoy the view of the city and the river.

At the time we were here, they appear to be working towards installing a roof-top bar, and a ground floor swimming pool, but these are not available at time of writing.

Overall, a standard good quality hotel at a good price, and if nothing else, the shower alone earns my recommendation.

Room Tip: Rooms towards the river side are probably quieter. There'a a Karaoke bar in the streets behind...

I stayed at the King Fi form 3 Feb12 to 10 Feb 12. It caters to a business clientele but is welcoming to regular tourists too. They were hosting a few business meetings in the restaurant while I was there. It's location on the east bank of the Stung Sangker River means that it is quieter than hotels that are downtown. It is a pleasant walk to a bridge that takes you toward the downtown area and one can be in the central market within 15 or 20 minutes, depending on one's pace. If walking isn't your thing, TukTuks or motos are always available at the hotel.
My room had two double beds with very comfortable mattresses. Everything (TV, AC(very quiet), Lights, Fridge, Personal Safe, Tea Maker and Outlets) worked fine. I had a bathtub with a jacuzzi in it which I could not get to work, but it may have been me rather than a faulty machine. There also was a small balcony. The room was very clean, including the lavatory.
The restaurant is another story. Breakfast was mainly a buffet using food leftover from the restaurant the previous evening, at least that's how it seemed from a quality point of view. The fresh fruit was good, the toaster worked okay but the coffee pot seemed to be out of coffee frequently. To its credit, they had an omelette to order station. I did eat dinner one night and the Khmer food was disappointing. The overall feeling I got from the restaurant at the King Fy was that the operation isn't well organized. I am a chef and I may be too picky about well run kitchens, so take it for what it's worth.
The staff at the hotel were always friendly and eager to please. With the exception of two or three afternoon/evening staff that spoke English, most of the staff spoke little, if any, English.
It wasn't a problem.

Room Tip: The staff upgraded me too a quieter room on their own volition. Ask for a room on the north side of...

We stayed here for 1 night and were highly impressed by the quality of the rooms. When we stayed in early january there was a problem with building work on our floor and so after 1 night we moved to The Sanctuary ( much more expensive) for a night of peace and quiet.

Breakfast was good and the staff were very understanding and helpful , and so i would still recommend staying here, and would stay again if i return to Battambang.

This is a fantastic hotel - absolute luxury in a city where that's hard to find! The rooms are very plush and comfortable with some thoughtful touches of snacks and drinks. The breakfast is also very good compared to others we had in Cambodia.

The staff are amazing and can't do enough for you. We were treated like royalty from the second we arrived. They arranged tuk tuk's, advised sites to see and restaurants to visit, arranged our taxi back to the border and generally took care of us throughout our stay.

The only issue we had was that the cleaning staff and other guests rose early - if you want to sleep past 8am good luck to you! There's so much to see around the area though that it's something of a blessing - the earlier you get up the more you can pack in to your day.

I would highly recommend staying at the King Fy. We had a really great time there.

5 minute walk into everything, and I swear if you asked the manager for the shirt off his back he's hand it over, what a great guy, always takes care of you without asking for anything in return.
