The staff at this hotel are amazingly helpful and accommodating. When the streets were flooded following a wet season downpour, the Manager ferried us to restaurants and provided a tuk tuk for the return journey. They were genuinely helpful without any underlying motive. The hotel is spotless with large, bright and airy rooms. They even give you free fruit!

This place has great service (the father will ply you with scarves and pineapple) and great rooms for almost nothing. You'll see that in Cambodia the service and rooms are far better than anything you can get for the same price range in Thailand or Laos. But this place really is exceptional.

Everything is new, apart from the odd paintings in the lobby, rooms are very neat & stylishly decorated. Bathroom is great and there is a communal balcony on each floor. Very quiet, but Battambang is quiet all around.

The 2 sons speak great English and can help with anything you need or want to know. The father does not speak English, but is incredibly sweet and awesome.

Battambang was my favorite place in Cambodia, you must do the day trip sightseeing WITH a tuk tuk driver as this only makes everything more fun. I had Mr. Lizy (ask for him at the hotel). YOU MUST MEET HIM! He is not only obliging and sweet, he is full of information and speaks amazing English. Also very funny and a great guy just to hang out with. I was quoted $15 for the day (1 person, just me) and I tipped 30% because he was totally worth it. This is not the place to do the sights on your own on a motorbike, the tuk tuk is the way to go here.

Room Tip: I think they are all good, but there is no elevator

The Lux is a modern and clean guest house and a good place to base yourself on a visit to Battambang.

The rooms are large and airy but the bathroom only had an open vent (without a glass window or a mesh) so mosquitoes did get into the room - even though the staff claimed that they couldn't get in because of the design of the vents!

Overall, the low cost and good location of the Lux makes it a good choice for budget travellers.

We had an excellent stay at the lux hotel. Very clean, modern, top-quality sheets, a mini-bar and free toothbrush to boot. The service was just as good: attentive, honest and friendly. They offered us free pinapple and a complimentary Khmer scarf - all for a great rate.

Having found this hotel in the guidebook I rang ahead to make a reservation. The staff were extremely helpful. And they sent a driver to puck me up from the bus station. The reception is very well kept and was a sign if things to come. The rooms are very clean and have everything you could wish for. They have a fantastic English speaking tuc tuc driver who we hired all day. Overall an excellent place and I would thoroughly recommend here.

Stayed for two nights at $10/ night without. It would have been $15 with air conditioning. Very helpful staff and immaculate room. I understand they are extending soon and building a pool so I guess the price will increase but at the moment is is incredibly good value. Free bananas too.

Room Tip: Our room abutted the shared balcony (recommended).

We stayed here after 2 nights in the Chhaya hotel. For $15 we got a large room with a/c, big comfortable bed and decent bathroom. Nice and clean with a plate of bananas delivered to us by the owner and free water. Staff are friendly and helpful and I would stay here again given the choice
