- GK Chesterton
La Villa in Battambang is a boutique little hotel set in a colonial house built in the 1930s. The owners have renovated the building maintaining its colonial style and furnishing it exquisitely with art deco and antiques. This has long been the best accommodation option in town, although new rivals are now appearing.
The guesthouse is set on the banks of the river Sangker. From here the city center is within a walking distance and is located in the area where the main colonial buildings are.
The hotel has 7 en suite rooms and are equipped with air conditioning and fans, TV set and cable network, mosquito net, wardrove, working desk and a safety box.
The best rooms available in this Guesthouse are the top floor loft style rooms that have a terrace overviewing the river.
The hotel has a pool and a restaurant with views over the garden and all the rooms contain telephone sets.
The highlight of this guesthouse is arguably its unique achitectural style and the exquisite decoration that recreates the ambience of the French colonial era. Its long-established reputation and small size means that it is often full.
"The must surely be the best boutique hotel in Cambodia. La Villa is a beautiful place to be - the pool and restaurant are first class, the staff and manager pleasant and helpful and the hotel is in fact more like a beautiful art deco museum. Almost worth the trip to Battambang itself. Visitors should be aware that the two roof top rooms are not period and although large, well equiped and with beautiful views over the river, do disappoint a little in comparison with the rest of the hotel."
