“Centrally based and close to the market,”
Reviewed April 23, 2010

Centrally based and close to the market, this hotel was a real gem of a find. Built fairly recently it provides a range of accommodation costing from $8 - £15. The room we stayed in had a/c, was large, airy, clean with a very comfortable bed and good en-suite facilities. There is plenty of space for clothes, plus a desk, fridge, and TV offering over 60 cable channels.

There is free internet access on the mezzanine level and free WI_FI in the rooms,

plus 3 separate rooftop terraces offering panaromic views of Battambang along with comfortable seating areas and peaceful surroundings.

Mr Seng, the owner was really hospitable and friendly and the staff were great.

Really can't recommend this place highly enough.

We stayed here four nights. It's a rare hassle-free hotel in Cambodia with excellent service and very clean rooms. You may need an extra blanket in the A/C rooms -- even during the hot season.

Paid $8 for a spacious room w/double bed, TV, large window, cold water shower and a fan. (For $15 or so you can get A/C and hot water). Excellent view from the top of the hotel, there's a little area ouside where you can sit down and drink beer or whatever watching the sunset. Staff was very friendly but not much English spoken there. They have a laundry service.

If you're on a budget, this hotel is a great deal for your money. Rooms are specious enough (though ours smelled a little mildewy) and the place is quite clean. The hotel is also a short distance from the riverfront and its restaurants and shops. If you're looking for a more unique experience, I would suggest the Villa on the other side of the river. We had drinks there when we stayed at Seng Hout and fell in love the the spot. Gorgeous pool and restaurant and beautiful architecture at reasonable (but higher than Seng Hout) prices. Staff at Seng Hout when we were there spoke very limited English and did not understand the word "reservation" when we said we had one, but we handed them passports, they checked their system and found our room. The hotel's tuk tuk driver actually spoke much better English and supposedly had a father who was an American soldier.

I visited Battambang and the north-west of Cambodia with a couple of Cambodian friends. They recommended the Seng Hout, and at $15 a night I did not know what to expect aside from seeing some good reviews and some pics online. On arrival it was far beyond what I expected. Big airy lobby, efficient reception, lift to my floor. We had a couple of rooms and they were both excellent. Spotlessly clean and airy, cable TV, air-con, a good bed, a desk and chair. There was an en-suite bathroom that was more a walk-in closet with shower/toilet/handbasin - but it was also spotlessly clean with good hot water.

Just a stone's throw from the old art-deco central market and riverside city centre this hotel is very well located. Only negative was no on-site restaurant or breakfast at the time of my visit. I understand that this has now changed. There are lots of breakfast and dinner options within an easy walk of the hotel, and Battambang is a neat little city and a great base for day trips to Banteay Chhmar, Sisophon, Wat Ek Phnom, the bamboo railway and Wat Banan.

I'd definitely stay here again.

Excellent location, my room had a 270 degree view and cheap. Stay here!

Only slight negative are the touts downstairs in the reception area. These young lads will come up to you and ask you your nationality. As a Londoner the two guys who approached me came up with a string of cockney. All very impressive but rather than giving it the mouth and pretending to be your firend, it would be better these touts are kept outside.

The hotel is well located in Battambang, a block from the river, a block from the market and within walking distance of restaurants. The staff is very willing to please and there is always someone on duty who can communicate in English. They have a restaurant but it has just opened and so far has only basic western food, including continental and american breakfasts. The bed is firm, the sheets clean, the rooms and hotel, spotless. There is a good internet connection and two terminals, free for guests. The WiFI connection is also excellent in the lobby. We took a tour with a local Tuk-tuk driver called "Sokha" who is connected to the hotel but independent. He speaks good English, has very good interpersonal communications skills, is from Battambang, is not pushy, and knows a lot about the sights to see around Battambang. We would strongly recommend the hotel as a good place to stay and ""Sokha"" as a guide.
