Coloniale room

Our Coloniale room’s name is based on the French word embracing the 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 distressed period pieces from the IndoChine 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 has a spacious shower with instant-hot water, and  walls decorated with a Khmer graffitti motif.  Plus 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 classic French continental breakfast/petit déjeuner tray delivered daily to your room. Throughout the day you can join us downstairs in our libations bar.
