A truly lovely boutique hotel, absolutely charming
What we say:
La Villa is, quite simply, one of the most charming hotels we've seen in Cambodia — and we've seen most of them. A converted private residence, La Villa is set in a colonial-period mansion just across the Sangker River from central Battambang. The rooms are exquisitely furnished and decorated with an attention to detail we see far far too little. Rooms are spacious affairs, with the upstairs rooms having a reading room style appearance, while the downstairs affairs are more moderately sized. The furnishings are lovely, tasteful linens and cloths and antiques littered throughout. The hot water bathrooms come with large deep bathtubs well suited for a long hot soak. The restaurant is bright and airy courtesy of a large atrium skylight and the restaurant, along with the bar come well recommended. The swimming pool, located at the rear of the hotel, is perfectly maintained and surrounded by beautiful flora. An enthusiastic guest who we met at the time of our visit explained that she had to book her room five months in advance (and even planned her entire trip around this hotel). A truly lovely boutique hotel worth every penny. Highly recommended for a splurge. Book well in advance (worth trying if you didn't due to possible cancellations)

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).
