What we say:
You have to feel a bit sorry for La Villa. This beautifully restored French period villa -- Battambang's first upmarket accommodation option -- opened up with a fine riverside location, though finds itself these days sandwiched right between two towering brand new hotels, King Fy and Vy Chhe. Indeed, at time of writing there were other hotels under construction along this strip too. The main building is a lovingly restored colonial villa, with a small pool, and rooms have been added in the garden at the rear. Rooms are very well decorated with great attention to detail and some French flourishes, as well as modern creature comforts such as bath tubs and WiFi. The restaurant is perhaps their piece de resistance, with the tiled floor and large skylight in the high ceiling creating a very classic French feel -- the classic French menu comes highly recommended and is surprisingly good value for money. There is these days competition in Battambang both in the French cuisine and tasteful upmarket accommodation fields but La Villa is still very much the yardstick by which everything else is measured.

Vive La Villa
This is a charming place to stay when in Battambang. The rooms are large and extremely comfortable, the restaurant is excellent and the staff very friendly and professional. The manager, Corinne, is a gorgeous and classy French lady. The location, being on the opposite side of the river to the main town, makes for a quiet stay (except when they have a karaoke night at a nearby restaurant). All in all, I would recommend this hotel to flashpackers like myself, although with the cheapest room at $60/$65 for single/double, it is stretching the budget a little. Believe me, it IS worth it.

Charming and comfortable
The room was fantastic. We would not mind spending the whole afternoon there just relaxing in their deluxe room. Their restaurant had a really charming atmosphere. When we were there it happened that there was construction going on with the bridge nearby so we had to walk a long way to get to the restaurants on the west side of town –- but it should not be a concern when the bridge renovation is completed. It was a little pricey (considering we only paid $7 for a three-person room in Chhaya Hotel) but it is worth spending the extra money to indulge yourself after spending a day exploring the nearby attractions on a moto. (I guarantee that you will be covered with sand and sweat after spending a day on a dusty road).
