“Great surprise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 21, 2013

I decided last hour to visit Battambang, and it was a great idea, not only by the city but also for the Sangket Villa.
I look for small hotels with personal attention, good location, quiet at night and nice food, and Marco and Nathalie's house is just an excellent example.
They were very helpful with all the transportation, pick up, tours, questions and reservations, they really made me feel like a friend instead of a guest.
First recommendation to all my friends visiting Cambodia.

I was very happy to come across this place in Battambang. It's about a 10 min walk from city center, very short tuk tuk. Run by a nice Swiss couple, the hotel is very clean, has a nice pool, a/c, wife/cable. The owners were very welcoming and helped with tours, bus tickets, etc. This place is relatively new (5 months) so not in the guidebooks yet. I have stayed in many "mid range" hotels in SE Asia during my trip and can say that for less than $30/night this is a GREAT value.

We stayed here for four nights and enjoyed Marco's hospitality greatly.

Sangker Villa is located a short walk or a very short tuk tuk ride into the centre of Battambang on a quiet residential street. It is a perfect place to retire to after a hectic day.

The whole place is spotlessly clean and the pool is a very welcome retreat from the heat.

The rooms are well appointed with a large firm bed, fridge, large television, fan and very effective air con.

Breakfast is lovely, freshly baked bread, fruit, jam, juice and eggs should you want them.

We had a few very tasty sandwiches for lunch and the rest of the menu sounded delicious.

Marco arranged a couple of tours for us with David and his brothers, all of whom are utterly charming.

We thoroughly enjoyed Marco's company during our stay and also enjoyed a few ice cold draught beers at the bar.

Don't let Battambang be a one or two night stop of on the way to somewhere else. Take a few days to really enjoy it with Marco and enjoy the best draught beer in town whilst you are there.

We ( mark 45, Brigitte 44, Flora 9 and Sil7) stayed for 5 nights in Sangker Villa. By coincedence we saw the sign on the road, and walked in. From the first moment we feld at home. The great stories from Marco about their travelings from Switserland to Cambodia by campervan made a good introduction for the rest of our stay.
We stayed in the family room wich was hudge....! Western standerd toilet and shower and the first hotel wich was spotless clean. Our kids love the pool, the cat and the home made bread and caramels. Our stay in Sanker Villa where the last 5 days in Cambodia after 1 month of traveling through the country. It was the perfect place to get our rest....
We loved it!!!! Thanks so much!

First of all... If you wanna visit an authentic area in south east Asia (I mean something else than Phuket, Koh Samui or Siem Reap)... Go to Battambang. This little city is still a nice place not taken over by mass tourism yet... But for how long...? For those who knew it, it looks pretty much like Thailand 25 years ago...
This also means that the standards for hotels are not really what we use to know.
The sangker villa is probably the best place to stay if you wanna be downtown. This new little hotel own by Nathalie and Marco from Switzerland offers the standards you wish to find. Nice big rooms, fantastic bathrooms, a nice bar with swimming pool outside and a cool Cat... You can eat there as well and there's real bred which is also not so easy to find...
Marco will also help you for visits, tours etc... He knows the place really and definitely could be you tour manager there ;-)
Last but not least... The ratio quality - price is more than honest! They speak french, english, spanish, italian, german and swiss-german.

I stayed more than two months at Sangker Villa from June untill August during my work as expat in Battambang.
My two hosts Nathalie and Marco were very friendly and I felt comfortable in my time. The family atmosphere at this small hotel made ​​my stay a pleasure and I would stay here again at any time. The price performance ratio is great and I can only recommend this hotel highly enough.
The small cat of hosts alone would be worth the stay.

I stayed with Marco and Nathalie for a little more than a month this summer while I was volunteering at a local hospital. They were wonderful hosts, providing us with good facilities and conversation. Their food is very good, I particularly liked the homemade Swiss caramels. It was a great place to live for an extended time in the off-season, and I'm sure during tourist season they run it just as well.
