“Good hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014

Manager speaks very good English. Room large with balcony, well appointed. Staff very helpful in all matters, set up ongoing bus tickets in a matter of a minute and had bus pick us up at the hotel. Free book exchange available and a generous gift given to us at the end of our five night stay. Hotel situated in the very heart of city with two major markets within t few minutes walk. Everything you could want from a hotel.

Room Tip: Room with balcony at front of building.

this hotel is budget and central to city. Large rooms, air conditioned with adequate breakfast. best part of this is the friendly English speaking Tuk Tuk driver called dollar. look him up as he is worth it and very kind. His number is (855) 10551582
Or 098606261. he is not expensive and supports his mother and is putting himself through night school

Very close to Jaan Bai cafe which has the best food and is cheap

We were not overly impressed by Royal hotel. The menu in very basic and a bit overpriced for what you get. Service is friendly
BUT
Who seemed to be the manager promised he would get us the cheapest Tuk Tuk in town for our full day tour.
$30 the Tuk til driver asked I then asked the manager and he said yes very good price!
Well we met a couple that were in the same tour we saw every location they were in another tuktuk and were only charged $15 for the full day.

I then read lonely planet that night and yes on average is $12 to $15 a night so kinda our fault for not reading before hand but still a bit of honesty from the hotel would be nice.
Not a great spot if your looking for the backpacking vibe I found.

We would not stay again but overall it's not the worst place wee stayed at.

This is a place I would recommend to anyone without a doubt. Excellent service, delicious food, friendly staff, comfortable rooms, great location, and all for a very reasonable price, my only regret was not having more time here .I could not speak highly enough of the room the facilities the food and most importantly the staff and the service they provide.They also provided an bus transfer to the hotel for free of charge, if you wish to visit Battambang , please do not feel hesitate to book them a room for your self before you get to Battambang, Highly recommend hotel.

Room Tip: Book the room with the private balcony, just simply amazing.

Room are nice and clean but the air con was just blowing hot air and it was 35degrees outside, we changed rooms later that evening and the air con wasn't great either, they kept going down stairs to sort something then come back up to check if it got cooler, looked to me like they had all the air con turned way down permanently from down stairs as they were able to turn individual units off from the front desk and probably control the temp as well...remote was just for show..

Was very happy with my seven night stay here. Room was clean and had plenty of room.
The staff cant do enough for you. They are so friendly and helpful.
The Hotel is close to the market and in walking distance to local restaurants. The Royal has its own restaurant on the rooftop which is a great place to start the day or relax after a busy day exploring Battambang.
The only down side is that there is no lift so probably would not suit those not able to walk up stairs (though I did see the lovely staff helping an older lady down the stairs) and no pool but there are plenty around that you can use.

Room Tip: $15 for air con was a bargain but during the cooler months a $8 fan room would be fine.
