Khemara 1 Hotel in Battambang is a newly built hotel within a short walking distance from the city center. The rooms are decorated with rich wooden furniture and parquet floor in a contemporary Khmer style.
The Khemara 1 Hotel (there is another older Khemara hotel/guest house in town) is located 2 kilometers away from the city center. A tuk tuk to the town center will cost around US$ 1.
The hotel has 92 rooms that are either Deluxe, standard twin rooms and single standard rooms and are equipped with cable TV, fridge and en suite with hot shower. The rooms are spacious but not all have windows.
The best room in the hotel is the President Suite, a spacious room that contains a bedroom, living room, dining-room and offers bodyguard/maid room service.
The resort has an outdoor swimming pool, pool bar, fitness center, karaoke, beauty salon, a business center and free WiFi in the rooms.
The hotel is of recent construction and the installations are fairly new, the swimming pool is big and well taken care of.
"Regularly visit Battambang in the course of work and have got into the habit of staying at this place. It is new hotel (old Khemara Hotel is also in town) and lacks much ambience but for USD 15 night it is very good value indeed. Rooms are furnished to high standard with very comfortable beds. The hotel has free WiFi throughout which is a big plus for me. Restaurant is also good and I have been to enjoy a very tasty steak dinner, breakfast buffet not much to write home about but still adequate. Hotel also has a Casino with free drinks once you start playing, With a littlebit of luck USD 1 keeps you going for quite a while on either the pokies or the roulette! Hotel also has very clean swimming pool. For Battambang this has got to be a good deal!"
