This hotel is pretty poor. It's old and feels stuffy and uncomfortable. There was a window in the room with bars looking into the corridor. I had a massage from the hotel and it was the worst massage I've ever had in a dirty room.

Reasonable hotel for a very reasonable price!

Location: Very close to river, night markets and the hub of the streets. Easy place to walk around ... along the river is quite nice.
Note, there are 2 Seng Hout Hotels (virtually next door to each other). Same owner, this is the "new" one. Friends stayed in the "old" one, and suggest this one is better. (Although the other is half the price!) Stayed for only one night, apart from having no safe in the room, it was good enogh for me.

A little stark but pleasant enough.

Pros: The bathrooms have been recently updated. Very mordent.
Cons: The rooms lack charm but certainly are clean.
Location: The location is great for walking to the market and riverfront.
This hotel has a great location near the river and market place. It is a large building that feels a little cold. Staff was generally quite helpful.

Convenient clean hotel

Pleasant stay in a clean budget friendly room. Nice staff and great location for markets and local food. Battambang is a lot slower pace than other parts of Cambodia despite the size, our experience was the 2 night would have been enough to get around to the sights and experience the city

Sadly there was a group of very 'happy clappy' religious nutters staying in the Hotel, who proceeded to play various musical instruments, violins, guitars, drums whistles etc. and sing religious songs on the roof top every day for hours! Since we were on the floor below this did not bode well for us. We complained as the noise was truly UNBEARABLE, but the hotel did nothing. Additional, when I booked the rooms, the top category, we were given to understand our balcony was private IT WAS NOT PRIVATE - but could be used by anyone - and was. At all hours various unwashed hippy types were outside our windows, smoking and drinking and talking very loudly. Worst of all was another group of so called volunteers was also staying there and mixed in with the hippies, would party well into the night screaming and banging away - yes SCREAMING, running up and down the corridors and shouting from the roof top. Needless to say we didn't get any sleep or privacy on our 'relaxing' trip to Battambang! I live in Canbodia and had taken my ageing parents for a nice return trip to Battambang, what a disaster! Still the town is lovely and we tried to make the best of it, spending as little time at the Hotel as possible.

We are terribly sorry for your bad experience staying at our hotel. But it does not mean that we did nothing. We already tried our best to tell their lead of that group, but it was out of hand that their leader could not handle them. We are, again, sorry for what happened. Anyway, thanks for staying at our hotel.

Pros: location, wifi, friendly staff
Cons: hygiene and hot water supply
Location: There's a restaurant called Eden near by, food there is quite expensive on Battambang standard, but really good and worth serval visits
For the price, Seng Hout Hotel was alright. The wifi was good, pretty fast and relatively stable during our stay. I liked the location, it was pretty at the centre of the town, quite convenient, with a few good restaurants nearby (then again, Battambang was a small town and most things were close by anyways). The room wasn't very clean but it was clean enough. The hot water supply for shower wasn't stable and it can change from warm to cool randomly during one shower.
