The Lux Guesthouse is in a great location, just a couple of blocks from Riverside and right in the heart of the old colonial city. Our 3 person room was, huge and clean though slightly musty smelling, Good A/C and fan, hot water, fridge and very hard but surprisingly comfy huge beds.
The reception staff were a little hit and miss, most were super friendly and helpful arranging transportation and solving minor hiccups but just a couple appeared a bit grumpy during our 3 day stay, reluctant to get off the sofa to take/get our key.
Lovely breakfast at the sister hotel 'Delux Villa' just around the corner. Massive portions and great service from the main waiter. Slight downside is that the manager there does appear to be extremely untrusting of the 'lower class' guesthouse guests - he pounced on us for our vouchers every time we appeared for breakfast or to use the pool (which is also fabulous) engaging in no conversation whatsoever and not even smiling. Sadly we witnessed him behaving very differently towards guests staying in the villa which we found disappointing.
Overall though a great place to base yourself in Battambang.
