It seems it is the hotels policy to pick guests up from the bus station. We arrived at around 6:30pm after a very long, hot bus ride from Phnom Penh. I was sick, so I was very relieved when I saw my name pop up on a card outside the bus window. The chap grabbed our bags and before he set off, told us that because he didn't know where we were coming from or when, he had been running from bus to bus since 10:30 am looking for us!!! On arrival we were handed cold ripe bananas and given a brief overview of the area by the same tuk tuk driver. The only issue really was that we were on the fourth floor, and with no lift and feeling sick, it was a challenge going out for dinner!
The room was great. Spacious, beautiful view, clean and cozy. I spent most of our time in Battambang, in bed, but my wife was easily able to explore the town and when I was better, got to see the river which is only 5 minutes walk away. Friendly, helpful staff who booked our bus back to Phnom Penh and trips out at night. Would definitely stay again.
