4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

Very friendly staff and cheap hotel.
It's well located (even if Battambang is not so big), the rooms are big and very clean.
Restaurant/bar on rooftop to see sunset...or have a rest in hamac.

Negative point: the building is a little bit noisy, but with ears plugs it's ok ;o)

Although right in the centre of town its surprisingly peaceful, the young staff are friendly enthusiastic and efficient. The rooms are big and spacious with a balcony. The restaurant is up many stairs and the WiFi proved a bit of a pain, but the excellent Wood House directly across the road proved a great alternative for both of these. Final nice touch guests are presented with a temple scarf on leaving. A replacement hotel is going up across the road,with a lift.

There isn't a whole lot of choice in Battambang, and this place was right in the middle of things. The rooms are big and airy and clean. They are quite cheap aswell. The staff are friendly and although we did not use it they have a nice cafe/bar/restaurant on the roof. All in all a nice place to stay in Battambang, the only thing there was a wedding going on beside the hotel for the two nights we were there which made alot of noise, but theres alot to do in the area so you wont be in the hotel much!!

I spent 3 nights at Hotel Royal in Battambang and was very pleased with my stay. I had a large A/C room (with ceiling fan as well). The hotel has a nice roof-top restaurant as well as café-type seating in front of the hotel for coffee or light meals.
Staff was extremely helpful and courteous and were able to arrange a fantastic tuk tuk driver (Mr. Soon) to take me to various attractions in the city and surrounding countryside. Mr. Soon was very articulate and extremely informative as well as a great driver. Thank you, Mr. Soon!
Overall, I was very pleased with the hotel and it's a great value. It's on a quiet side street near the Central Market just a few blocks from the river. There are some very good restaurants within walking distance of the hotel and the staff provided me with a city map.
I was able to book minivan tickets back to Phnom Penh at a very reasonable price with pick-up at the hotel.
Great place to stay, would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Battambang.

Room Tip: There are various types of rooms. I booked a "double deluxe" and ended up with both a kin...

Spent Christmas here. Nice rooftop terrace. Battambang in general wasn't was lovely of a town to stay in as we'd thought it'd be, but this hotel was fine in and of itself. Staff at desk were very easy going, but still attentive and professional. Rented us motor scooters with little to no indoctrination or safety guidelines, which sort of surprised us after having rented scooters in Luang Prabang. Wedding next door on street level apparently was noisy till morning, but as a light sleeper, I still didn't hear it, even though my fellow tourists mentioned it. Rooms are huge and very clean.

Room Tip: Ask for room on 3rd or 4th floor on back of hotel, not on main street.

When I arrived there was only one A/C room free for 15$, so I took that, on the next morning I swapped to a fan room for 8$. Both were really spacious, clean and well maintained. I also saw the upper class rooms which were really nice, so they have quite a big amount of different rooms to choose from. It's perfectly located in the centre, the main market is just around the corner, but it's quiet at night time and I always had a good sleep without ear plugs. One of the best things for me about the Royal Hotel was their roof top restaurant where you can easily hang out, even if you don't eat or drink anything. You have a nice view over the city and can relax in one of the two provided hammocks.
