If you are into heavy wooden furniture this is your heaven. The rooms are clean and the staff friendly. Good location: close to the jettison for the Siem Reap boat and the central market, where you can enjoy lovely cakes and fruit. Air con working fine.

In a very good location, walking distance to the city center and really close to the pier of the boat for Siam Reap. Free internet points in the lobby and free bicycles available, and helpful service to arrange tour around Battambang and to book the boat trip to Siam Reap. Rooms are spacious and clean. The personnel is professional and quick. Breakfast is nothing particular. It worth it to take room without brakfast (a double room for 17 USD).

The hotel is located at the top of town, which means a nice stroll into the centre (5 mins) but also means a quieter location. Quieter, except that there were major renovations happening to install a pool - which will be a great addition when complete.
Rooms are filled with very heavy wooden furniture - which doesn't seem to fit the stark white rooms or the location. Rooms are clean enough. Free water, however our fridge didn't work which made it difficult to keep drinks cold. Beds were quite hard - but this is the norm in Cambodia.
Breakfast was very average - I'd go outside to eat. However for our 7am boat departure (arranged through the hotel), they kindly packed a breakfast for us to take on the boat. Much appreciated given the 8 hour boat ride!
Staff were young and friendly. They struggled with english, but enjoyed practicing with us.
They arranged a tuk tuk driver name Norea for us. He was AMAZING and the highlight of our time in Battambang. Highly recommend using him if you can. Great tour guide, very friendly, safe driver and knows all the contacts/locals at the various stops.

We were very impressed by the staff and their helpfulness. The room was very good and clean. We used the free hotel bicycles and the tuk tuk driver gave us a great day sightseeing for twenty dollars.

Disappointing hotel that advertises several room features on its website that simply do not exist, e.g.

1. Bath tub - no baths in any rooms; showers only
2. Balcony - whilst there are balconies around the hotel, it is impossible to access them from the rooms
3. Room safe - no room safe; only a lockable drawe that a child could access.

In addition, the local garage started playing loud music at 5.30 am on two days of my stay making sleep impossible as the external windows have poor sound insulation, and the electric shower leaked badly making it difficult to get wet. Hotel location not great as it is on a main road at the northern edge of the town; although Battambang is a small town, it is still a 15 minute walk (or 5 minutes on a tuk-tuk) to the main restaurants and bars of the town. Rooms are, however, large with most of the basic facilties you would expect, and the hotel does free bicycle hire for guests. Overall, you can do much better in Battambang.

Room Tip: Stay in another hotel!

Stayed at this lovely hotel for only one night for $20USD in a double room with breakfast provided.
The room was very spacious,clean and tidy with lovely furnishings along with a T.V , mini fridge with two bottles of water for free.
The Hotel is located in a good position in town with good professional staff, good service, quiet and very clean.
The bus station is located almost across the road from the hotel so if traveling by bus this is the ideal place to stay.
Would definately stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: Remember to always go and look at the room you are interested in before making a dicission to stay...
