“Affordable, comfortable, clean.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2014

Room was $10 for Fan room. Included: large bed for 2 people, mini fridge, WiFi (alot slower than the 3.5GB of internet data you can buy for 5$ for a month at a cellphone shop), electric water heater shower, western toilet, comp. Soap, toothbrush, two small waters, etc. Our bathroom bulb was out, I just swapped it with a room one, easy peasy. Polite staff. Called on phone an asked if I could book the circus showing, when I went to the lobby they had a tuktuk waiting for me. 5$ round trip (return), he waited 1hr for the shows completion. No elevator, 4 large flights of stairs. Door handles are rickity, I feel If I turned hard enough I could break them (break in). But there's security posted outside the building, and employees in entrance. Right next to market, a bakery, western standardized restaurants with comparably cheap prices, but places without English are where its at. All in all, pleasant affordable stay.

A nice location and having a tuck tuck meet our boat was a nice touch. Rooms are big and linens nice. No trouble with the staff as reported by others. Bathrooms a bit grungy in our room. All in all a decent but not great place.

In the back-packer area close to food stalls and markets. Large airy room, hot shower, air con and the usual facilities. Wi-Fi was very slow and patchy, staff barely tolerating their guests. Would not like to have crossed them. All in all a good basic backpacker abode but a little pricey and the staff need lessons in charm.

Room Tip: All the rooms we saw were all very much the same

The facilities were clean, comfortable and reasonably priced.
What made it for me was the staff... They were very friendly, always willing to help and went out of their way to help us with any bookings and get us on the right bus.
Love the quirky lobby.
Thanks Lux!

Big rooms for 15 or 18 dollars a night. Clean linens and clean bathroom. Big windows on the higher floor offer decent view of the town. No problems with the room, other than that the lock for the door was not very secure. Service is lacking. Rotating cast of young men at the counter seemed incredibly disinterested. Not rude, but not polite either. No on-site restaurant. If you're in Battambang this isn't a bad place to stay.

Having spent a couple weeks on a budget in Cambodia, I can't tell you how pleased I was with the service at this hotel in my price range! They had a free tuktuk waiting at the bus station (we were late so he waited around for over an hour), full of smiles when we got there and some pinapple, and good English spoken.

If you are looking for value at a hotel you won't have problems at, this is the one.

Ps. I can't believe the few super negative reviews below so I'm combatting them with my rating, but at the price ot may as well be 5 stars.

The owners of Lux Guest House opened just a few mounths ago a new structure in a tipical khmer style villa. The rooms are located around a bigl pool in a beatiful garden . The rooms have ancient tipical forniture well decorated, The rooms at the second floor have both shover and pool. a big balcony looking at the pool .Kind and polite the staff. The owner gifted my wife a tipical khmer scarf ( it was chistmas time) He arranged for us breakfast at 6 in the morning and provided us with bananas of the garden for the boat trip to siem reap.A very good experience in a very beautiful location

Room Tip: Rooms at ground floor are cheaper .
