What we say:
Star, Royal and Asia Hotels are all under the same ownership, though they each have different management. Star on 102 Street is the smallest of the three and to our minds the friendliest – they also consistently come in as number one on the cleanest hotel in town stakes. Rooms are spotless and corridors and stairs positively sparkle. As with many Chinese/Khmer-style hotels in Battambang the lobbies are imposing, with massive wooden furniture and tiles everywhere, though this is probably the only hotel where we'd eat straight off them. As with its two sister hotels, Star suffers from a lack of an elevator, though there are always plenty of willing staff around to carry bags. If you can make it up to the fourth floor there's chairs, a fridge and great views if you can find someone to serve you. Rooms vary considerably and go from huge to pokey and some don't have windows, so be careful. Fan and air-con rates are for the same rooms, you'll just either get an air-con remote or not. There's room for negotiation depending upon how busy they are – in low season, a small room with no window and without turning on the air-con may go as low as $5). All showers are hot and ensuite and all rooms come with fridge, cable TV and breakfast. Tours and travel assistance can be provided and they offer some particularly good in-house tuk tuk drivers. This is a good deal and only a five-minute walk from the market and convenient for buses.

Fpr $18 we got a very spacious, spotless, attractive room on the third floor. Nice looking wooden furniture, including two chairs, an armoire, a desk, a casing for the small fridge, and two bedside tables. The bathroom actually has a tub! Ceiling tiles are molded to look like a tinned ceiling. Only compaint is that lighting is on the dim side. Overall, a really fine room for this price range. Free WiFi is fast, The rooftop bar/restaurant shows no signs of being in operation but is a great place to sit at a table and do internet while looking over the city. You can always go down to the lobby, get a beer, and bring it up to the roof. The young woman at reception when we arrived was utterly charming, very cute and had good English.
