“My Lay is everywhere”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

We had a very short stay in this budget hotel. The room was big and although the stairs nearly killed us we had great help up and down with our bags. The manager, My Lay, was at reception, at the roftop bar making coffees, organising tours. He was very welcoming. Our bus to Phnom was organised through Mr Lay and also an afternoon tuk-tuk tour which we enjoyed. Food was good. Would recommend this hotel for a budget stay in Battambang.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the street are tops.

Good value for money with friendly and helpful staff. We even got a little gift on leaving. Close to the central market and 5 minute walk to where the majority of restaurants seem to be. The rooftop restaurant seemed to be closed when we went up there at 12.30pm but the menu looked reasonably priced.

We enjoyed our stay in Battambang. The Royal Hotel is a good place to explore the city and surroundings (they rent also motorbikes). The room was nice and generous - we liked it. Yes, go to the roof, have breakfast early and enjoy sunrise!

Stayed as part of a group and have to say the rooms and service provided by most of the staff was superb. Mr Lay in particular. I would highly recommend this hotel. To be balanced...bits that weren't great for us was we were close to bar opposite (although closes early), Wi-Fi not great in our room, roof restaurant day staff poor service / self service! And no lift! I would def stay here again though as room was great, they helped to organise some superb experiences and it was the best service overall I've ever had! Best place to eat was right behind the hotel... Nary kitchen! Very small and authentic.

This is a very nice hotel in the centre of Batambang. A friendly staff who is always willing to help you. The roof-top restaurant is great. In Batambang you can take the boat to Siem Reap. The tickets for sale in the hotel. Go also to the circus-show!!

We stayed 3 nights. It's well located, the rooms large and the staircases larger still. this is not a five star hotel but it suited my family well. There is a nice roof terrace. Front desk staff knew the answers to every question and there is a good cheap laundry service.

It's a decent enough budget hotel in a convenient location. Right by the central market and walk-able distance to many of the attractions.

The room was great for the price paid: spacious and have everything you need as a traveller. Wireless, TV, hot water (which is a bit of a luxury in rural Cambodia!), bed, seats and mirror. Bed was a little hard, but we have found this common in Cambodia.

The service was a little inconsistent. Most staff are friendly but some are a little grumpy and sometimes disinterested in guests. However all requests were responded to when needed.

No lifts, so not disable friendly, just for reference.
Breakfast was simple, however sufficient and tasted good. There are plenty of dining options around the hotel as well.

There was however a night spot just across the road, and music did not stop until wee hours in the morning, which made it hard when we were trying to sleep to get up early.... but other than that no major dramas.
