“Great hotel in one of the lesser known places in Cambodia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 3, 2012

This was our third visit to Cambodia but first to Battambang. The Bambu is a great hotel. Wonderful Cambodian hospitality and friendliness in a Western owned/managed hotel. Lovely large rooms (if a little dark) and wet room/bathroom. It's very well designed with a lovely pool in the middle. Breakfast arrangements changed whilst we were there and on our second morning we seemed to have much more choice and still good quality. The bar is a nice place to relax with comfortable chairs. The staff are delightful and nothing was too much trouble; they booked our bus seats back to Siem Reap and gave us good advice. Our tuktuk driver was connected to the hotel and, again, friendly, informative and really made our stay. We could have stayed longer and explored the area further - and more than happy to stay more nights at the Bambu.

We weren't sure whether to visit Battambang but we loved it here. The hotel is small, quiet but all you need. We had a nice room (quite noisy as the local chickens woke us most mornings!) and enjoyed the personal service and attention from the owner who is lovely. If you stay, I encourage you to join the owner at the bar - it makes it a very personal and special visit. The owner is shy about his involvement with a local school but quiz him on it and do visit - we went with our 10 year old daughter and spent an hour or so teaching Engish to poor Cambodian children who cannot affford education - it is a magical and humbling thing to do.

This hotel is well situated, in a quiet area, the staff is very nice, room was clean, the (hot) pool is amazing.
On the other side, we were quite disappointed by the breakfast (limited choice). Unfortunately, there seems to be a pigs farm close to the hotel, which is quite inconvenient when you are on the pool and the wind brings you bad smell...
Value for money is not the best, provided the city is not as touristic as Siem Reap...

Hello Sandra

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel as it really helps us to make improvements where necessary. I am sorry you found the choice at breakfast limited. When we are busy we run a buffet breakfast which I think has something for everyone but when we are quieter our breakfast is a la carte. As well as tea, coffee, juices, fresh fruit etc we offer croissants, toast and jams and also a choice of a western breakfast (bacon, sausages, eggs), an Asian noodle soup (with a choice of meats or vegetables) or cereals and museli with milk and yoghurt. As a result of your comments I reviewed our breakfast this morning and I have made changes to our breakfast menu card that explains, I hope, exactly what is on offer. As to our porcine friends next door they were a bit smelly last month I have to admit! Most of our guests like the pigs and many have paid them a personal visit but obviously no one is too happy if they smell. We, and other local householders and a representative from the commune, went to talk with our neighbour about this and I am pleased to say that last week a new drainage system has been installed next door. So far there have been no smells although at feeding time you can still hear the occasional oink!

I am really pleased you enjoyed our pool and our wonderful staff and thanks again for your comments.

We stayed at Bambu for two nights and the room was comfortable, spacious with a huge bathroom. Our room was on the ground floor so was full of mosquitos when we arrived, but we were provided with a can of bug spray which got rid of most of them. The meals at the restaurant were nice and the poolside bar is a great place to relax. The friendly tuk tuk drivers waiting outside the hotel make things easy and the staff are helpful negotiating prices for you, even offering to charge the cost to your room. There was great information about Battambang in the rooms, which made exploring easy.

Our only hiccup was with a transfer arranged though the hotel from the border of Thailand. After hearing lots of terrible stories about tourists getting ripped off at the border crossing at Poipet, we arranged a transfer through the hotel. We clarified the costs for this via email beforehand, but on arrival in Poipet we ended up paying twice as much to cover the taxi mafia costs. It was a mild annoyance as we had gone to such effort to clarify the costs for this, and not a great start to our stay.

First visiting Battambang, Combodia for my friend's wedding. I choose this hotel because of one reason " nice" . A warm welcome with the drink and cold towel from the staff. There were not many rooms so you can avoid from the crowd and group tour. The room was nice and clean with full furnish also free WiFi available. The bed was too comfortable with lots of pillows and the swimming pool for you to relax after long walk in town. But on the other side, because of surrounding by the garden there were many mosquitoes in the rooms (the ground floor room)especially in the bathroom. Also if you go out at night make sure you remember the location where you stay, with too many soi you may get lose easily!

Returned to Battambang for a visit after many years away; found this hotel via Tripadvisor and were very pleased with the results. Comfortable, clean, excellent food, great pool and bar areas; and very helpful staff - including the man who stood outside waving a light on the night we arrived so that we wouldn't miss the place! Bedrooom was spacious and comfortable, and the bathroom was roomy and modern. Everything worked as it should, from wireless internet to air conditioner; ceiling fan and hammock on verandah were nice touches. We stayed 3 nights and would happily have stayed longer.

Room Tip: Suite in the front part of the hotel, but on the side overlooking the pool and bar.

The Bambu hotel is a very nice hotel in Battambang, not far from the river and the markets. The rooms are very comfortable with soft beds and spacious shower and bathroom. The poolside bar is a great place to spend the evening, and the restaurant has very tasty food. Unfortunately, there are Many French tourists who like to smoke everywhere, which is the only downside to this hotel.
