Arriving at Battambang the booking at our intended hotel Phka Villa was confused and they arranged for us to stay here for the first night.
This large hotel is brand new and felt 99% empty apart from a few businessmen. The palace-like entrance and lobby area are overly lavish with a lot of marble, twinkling lights and wooden ornaments. The room on the 8th floor was fine but bare - maybe finishing touches are still coming. It was stifling hot when we arrived as it was late in the evening and the sun had shone in all day. Air-conditioner did manage to cool it after a while though. Breakfast buffet was poor, it had a true Soviet feel. Nothing fresh. Cold coffee. No muesli or yoghurt. The staff were very courteous, but seemed unexperienced and lacking in language skills.
Overall, The Classy Hotel feels like an overstaffed luxury business hotel with no personality yet. I would not recommended it to holidaymakers now while it's still starting up. In time the services and atmosphere may well improve.
