    Can anyone advise if the Bus Stop Guesthouse is closed in end Oct/early Nov?

    I visited their webstie (busstopcambodia.com) and it indicated "closed". I am visiting Battambang in end Oct/early Nov 11.

    I don't know if it is closed but I would recommend you pick somewhere else to stay. I stayed there in Dec 2010 and thought it wasn't good value for your money. There are much cheaper options in town.

    Thanks jonenlyd. Did you happen to check out any others? Do you have any recommendations?

    I can only imagine 'Fox' has packed up and returned to Australia as he now has parental responsibilities.Just next door is the 'White Rose' a well known eatery in BB; carry on down to the river and there is a hotel on the right with great rooms overlooking the river but I can't remember the name. BTW Rates are negotiable.

    I stayed at the Seng Hout last January, and was planning to go there again in a few days. Around USD 16 for a very nice room, air con, clean, the lot. Breakfast not included.

    $16 seems a lot for a room in Cambodia.I left Phnom Penh last Monday and it's actually pretty cool for the time of year so I doubt you'd need a/c.We stopped in BB and it didn't seem any warmer there.

    Thanks Archmichael for the recommendation. Was hoping to find something for below $10.

    Sayadian. Thanks for the tip on bargaining. Is below $10 for a clean single realistic? Would the place down by the river be within the price range?

    I would think $10 would get you a clean room but with fan not a/c.
