Coloniale room



Coloniale room reflects the French occupation of Cambodia from 1863 to 1953. Reminiscent of the crumbling villas of Europe, we’ve preserved the walls’ and ceiling’s original painted finish under layers of glaze, and styled the room with antiques and  period pieces from the Indochina era. The cooling floor tiles are original.

Featuring an ultra-cofmortable king-size mattress made of all-natural fibres, cotton and linen sheets, down pillows.  The en-suite bathroom walls and floor are styled with colonial tiles and Khmer graffitti motif. Spacious shower boasts new brass fittings  with instant-hot water; bidet toilet seat.  Private balcony to gaze on Battambang’s leisurely street life.  Free Wi-Fi, air con and ceiling fan.

Our king-size Battambang Coloniale room has lodgings for one or two, with a complimentary Continental breakfast/petit déjeuner tray in bed or on the balcony.
