“Nice Enough”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Welcoming. Comfortable. Nice Amenities. The room was ready for us when we arrived and so was the staff. English usage by the owners is very good and some of the staff can get by with minimal English. From overhearing a conversation the owner is also able to use French! but since I'm not a french speaker I cannot comment on his fluency, but it sounded okay. The staff was more than willing to be helpful and not at all rude.

The beds are definitely okay - not the coconut mattresses or box spring "mattress", and they are not plush. Room size is more than adequate. Complimentary water is provided. The bathroom is asian in style, meaning, no shower stall or bathtub. There is a local water heater that is serviceable - you won't burn yourself with the hot water, but much preferable to a cold water shower. The bathroom has minimal ventilation, but is acceptable. The air conditioning was good. Most of the window views are not the postcard type, but certainly allows one to see some local lifestyle.

They have a nice swimming pool, more of a lap pool. While it is outside on the 3rd floor there is not much of a place for sunning. There are also a few exercise equipments available to use.
The restaurant was good. The food was good and presentation was nice. Service time was not long. Personally, I would prefer to eat at other restaurants in the city, with so many choices available. Their laundry service was prompt and I was quite pleased with the results - AND nothing was missing - good price!

If your time in Battambang is primarily spent away from the hotel, then this is a nice place to stay. The prices are quite good and it is quiet through the night. This place is comfortable but it's not a resort.

It is located very close to the river so from here one is within walking distance of many restaurants and exercising with the locals along the river early in the morning.

I spent 5 nights here and would stay again.

Pros:
Good location, walking distance to centre of town and restaurant/ markets

Cons:
-the double room that we booked had small size of bed , not the proper size
-unclean bathroom with dirty floors and moldy walls
-shower water smelled like urine although management assured us that the water has been treated and is clean.
-noisy room as ours was by the entrance and the pool, meaning that noise from other guests were heard all night

Unfortunately our experiences at Seng Hourt hotel was not the best we had to change hotels after just 1 night due to poor cleanliness, room quality and noise levels. However, I must say the staff at hotel was helpful and understanding.

Room Tip: Do not stay in the room closed to swimming pool

Loved this hotel, read previous reviews and wasn't so sure after we had booked it but couldn't fault anything (we got a room with a window but kept the curtains shut). The room was spotlessly clean, the staff friendly and attentive. We put some clothes to launder and they came back the next day, very cheap too. We had breakfast at the hotel, the food wasn't special but it was tasty and served quickly. The pool was great to cool down in. We really enjoyed the rooftop, it was peaceful with fantastic views of the city, shame it didn't have a bar, they could make a fortune from it. Central to the city, the market just at the bottom of the road.
We didn't use the tuk tuks outside, instead we found our own who was friendly and cheaper.
Would recommend highly a stay here, great value for money, would definitely go back.

Stayed two nights in the Senghout hotel with a group of 14 peoples travelling onward to Siem Reap
A four years old hotel that looks new, where personnel is trying very hard to make you a happy customer. Everyone seems to work as a family. A small pool will cool you off from the heat of the day. Battambang is like a "big village" where you can walk the streets without worries. The hotel is close to the market not far from the river bank.........a quiet place to enjoy this nice city or as a stop if you want to do the memorable boat trip to Siem Reap

This Hotel was fine for the price would stay there again although I didn't like Battambang didn't think it had much to offer If you plain things right you could be in and out in one day but I might just have missed it charms.

Since our last visit a few years ago, the room quality seems to have deteriorated. Some rooms are smelly.
Room Rate has increased from $15 to $20 for a pretty basic room, supposedly deluxe. The one we were offered at $20 didn't even have a window.
Will stay away in future as have found a much better hotel.

Room Tip: Look elsewhere. Across the river you will find some good hotels Battambang City Centre area seems...
