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.
