Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Accommodation in Battambang has improved radically of late and these days you have an excellent choice in all categories, with some slightly out of town resort-style options in addition to the downtown hotels. In fact such is the choice and value for money, it's a shame visitors don't spend more nights here. Note though that tourism in Battambang is experiencing a sharp increase, so some of the most popular options may get very busy in high season -- it can be a good idea to book in advance.
