This hotel is a perfect base from which to explore Battambang. They are just over the river from town, and we walked to lunch and dinner each day, but there was never a shortage of tuk tuks in case we wanted one.
The property is gorgeous, and the pool area is very relaxing. Our room was overlooking the pool and had a great balcony where we could read and chill out. The room itself had two twin beds and was very spacious. I LOVED the bathroom and its huge shower, however the water went out on us quite a few times. It was not a big deal, as I live in Cambodia and am used to it, but it might be something other guests are unfamiliar with. The only other downside in the rooms is that there is just one small mirror in the bathroom. As it was two girls in the room, this was a bit inconvenient, but nothing huge. Breakfast was delicious, the bar area was charming and serves up a stiff margarita!
Fair warning - there are two temples near by, and since we were visiting during a holiday, the music and chanting starts at about 4am. Again, we were used to this, but other guests are probably not prepared for such a wake up call. BTT is very small though, so I assume just about every hotel is near a pagoda, and there is absolutely nothing they can do about weddings, funerals or other services going on ( as it should be!)
The front desk also organized for us to have a tuk tuk take us to the countryside for an entire day and go to the main temples. The driver was excellent, spoke English and knew exactly where to take us. Highly recommend this hotel!
