Bambu Battambang Hotel
Ranked #4 of 26 Hotels in Battambang
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 8, 2013

We drove from Siem Reap to Battambang for a 2 night stay. We were thrilled when we saw the Bambu Hotel & met Pat & Lucky. Lucky is a lovely Cambodian who works in reception. He took care of us immediately. Pat an Englishman introduced himself & told us all about the hotel & suggested places to visit during our stay. In fact, we found a itinerary of sorts in our room detailing where & why along with how far & costs by Tuk-Tuk. Our spacious double room overlooked the pool. As always the staff were extremely friendly & very eager to accomodate. The restaurant & food were fabulous. The menu was extensive & as well as Khymer food had a wide variety of western food to choose from. The bar by the pool was a terrific place to wind down with a drink afyer a busy day or night out. No complaints whatsoever. Cannot wait to return

Room Tip: As this a small boutique hotel, there were only 2 rooms overlooking the pool. However, again, being...

Battambang is on the road between Phnom Penh and Siem Reap. Choosing Bambu will bring you to a nice boutique hotel. Usely in Cambodia tourists go to big nice hotels but they are all the same. Bambu is special, nice atmosphere at the bar in the evening, very helpful staff. The rooms are spacious, the swimming pool cools you after the journey, breakfast is plentiful for a new day. Ask for it to your travel agency.

Room Tip: ask for a room on fist floor with a pool view

What a host. Pat was terrific. From the moment we arrived, nothing was too much trouble. Rooms were absolutely fab - attention to detail! We were a group of 4 friends and were made to feel like royalty. Pat organised our trip to Siem reap - private boat ! He supplied us with packed lunch - massive club sandwiches - delish ! - gin & tonic, lime and ice, a slab of beer. Wish we had stayed there longer. Will definitely return to Cambodia if only to stay at the Bambu.

Room Tip: We stayed in the best rooms, but did see the others - all great.

After a long (and almost entirely enjoyable) boat trip from Siem Reap, we weren't sure what to expect of the Bambu Battambang Hotel. And WOW, were we thrilled when we drove up! It did help that we were upgraded to the suite in the main house with a huge balcony complete with 2 hammocks, but even before we knew about that we were enchanted by the pool, bar and restaurant courtyard. A beautiful room, extremely comfortable bed, huge bathroom (with a great shower), gorgeous pool, and excellent food. Couldn't ask for more! More expensive than other places in Battambang, sure, but worth it!

We stayed in the Bambu Hotel in Battambang for two nights in December 2012. The hotel is lovely and the atmosphere very relaxing. We loved the pool area with the bar and restaurant. Our room was spacious with a nice balcony. The room itself is quite basic although it does have everything you need. At night time there was a lot of noice in the room (even at 4.30 AM we heard loud music from a party nearby, maybe because we were there during Christmas). And we woke up very early due to construction work nearby which started at 6.30 AM. Probably it's noisy more often since we found ear plugs in the room. There is a happy hour in the bar every day where they serve great cocktails (try the Bambu Mojito!) and Pat, the owner, is a very friendly host who offered us a free first drink in the bar. Battambang is very quiet with just a few restaurants so two days for us was more than enough in this city.

Comfortable and pleasant, good service and reasonable restaurant. It's remoteness from town means you have to be motivated to go in to eat, but they have bikes (do the Heritage Trail - maps on internet). Felt some indifference from management - they were present, but drinking with friends rather than checking on customers.
p.s. no evidence of porcine smells per previous reviews


Rooms - 4
Pool - 4
Resto – 4

Room Tip: The suites are worth the extra

My wife and I chose to go to Battambang shortly after Christmas and stay through New Years. Staying at Bambu was a wonderful experience in every way. The hotel is located just a short distance from the main area of town which is great because its quiet and still convenient. We stayed in the main building which is French Colonial style and our room was incredibly comfortable. It had everything you could ask for from a flat screen TV, to an Ipod docking station, to a wonderfully comfortable bed and high quality linens. The bathroom was huge and the rainhead shower was a welcome sight after a long day out in the Cambodia sun. The saltwater pool is relaxing and peaceful and the food at the restaurant was by far the best in town (we tried several places). On top of that we stayed for the New Years party which was fantastic with great food and a nice crowd. The owners are incredibly accomodating and warm people which made our stay that much better. We're already discussing a future trip Battambang and a stay at Bambu.

Room Tip: We stayed in a Deluxe Room in the main building which we loved.
