“There are much better options around”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

Stayed there for three nights and had a poor accomodation: the first night there were bed bugs, I got transfered to another room where at 5 a.m. a guy in shorts and with a toothbrush n his hand was trying to open the door (I understood he was a friend of the hotel staff and just spent nights there, wondering why I was not in my room??!!!). I don't know about breakfast, had mine from the market roght on the next block. There is a nice terrace where I guess you could enjoy breakfast, giving on to the Phsar Nah. Otherwise, location is central and within walking distance from main sites. Rooms were invaded by ants (I now it's SE Asia and there are ants everywhere, but nowhere did I have them all over my things, even in my laptop...).

The hotel is in a good location. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. The staff are friendly most of the time, although it is a family affair, and the cheap rooms come at a price on the heavy push for their tours. If you plan on doing your own thing, it is best to stay one or two nights, although that would probably suffice as there is little to see in Battambang as a tourist. In summary; compared to some of the other hotels in Battambang in this price range, it is a valid choice, and the regular tuk tuk drivers outside are quite amusing.

Even though we showed up really late and destroyed after we were robbed on the bus to battambang and they didn't have any room , they finally managed to acommodate us and prepare one room for us in couple of minutes!!!

Young guys-managers-in the hotel were perfect, polite and intelligent. They organize tuk tuk driver for us for the next day to take us around battambang and young driver Dam (ask for him) is just perfect!!! Really recommend him to take you around.

If you want to have great stay with comfy rooms for great price, go to Royal hotel, it is just perfect:)))

We had a very warm welcome from the chatty staff - they even presented us with complimentary scarves when we left!

It's just a minute's walk from the market and there are nice cafes on the street. The hotel has a slightly scruffy rooftop bar which is good for a sunset drink.

Very well-priced and a decent place to stay in the centre of town, close to the main market. We stayed 3 nights in late November in a clean spacious and comfortable room at the front which was nevertheless quiet as it is not a busy street. While it had a balcony, we didn’t use it, as even at this time of year it was much cooler and more pleasant inside in the aircon. The bathroom has one of those showers just perched on the wall but has to be the best we have seen – it didn’t wet much else in the room and the slope on the floor is such that it drains, then dries, very quickly.

Breakfast was not included in the price but the hotel has a rooftop restaurant that does breakfast and dinner, or there is a restaurant across the street that does great fruit shakes and omelette baguettes.

Reception area is small, the desk seemed always busy and staff have only moderate English but are very helpful with bookings etc and the hotel provides transport to the boat if you are going this way to Siem Reap. We also got a great tuktuk driver here for a great full day trip in the countryside (Bamboo Train, fishing village, hilltop temples etc).

At the bus station we chose one of the waiting tuk tuk drivers to take us to the Royal Hotel, as it was one that we had shortlisted for our stay. We weren't disappointed! The rooms are clean and serviceable, and the staff friendly.

Tra Tra, our tuk tuk driver and unofficial guide, was great. He took us to see nearby Ship Hill, the Killing Cave, and to see an extraordinary amount of bats leave their cave. He speaks very good English, and was extremely cheerful and informative regarding the area's history and legends. I would highly recommend him as a driver and unofficial guide. Tra Tra's phone number is 078 710 900.

I stayed here after cycling from Saigon and decided to extend my trip and soak up more of the life in Cambodia Countryside and from Start to finish this Hotel was more than I would ever hoped for. Firstly it is not massive so retains a more personal feel to it. The rooms are gorgeous big and thebalcony is a real plus but most of all the staff were the attentive I have ever known. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Secondly it is the best location in town, few steps to everywhere in Battambang, so you can find a very convinience hotel, Thirdly, They have a beautiful restaurant on the top, where you can unwind , and enjoy seeing the beautiful sunset and sunrise. it truely one of my best hotel I have stayed around the world. I was very sorry to leave but I will definitely be back.
