Location, Location, Location! Just 3 rooms and 3 floors, but each one a design statement. Bric-à-Brac offers deluxe rooms in the old colonial quarter of Battambang, the heart of the city.
Our recent renovations are inspired by the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, embracing and glorifying transience and natural ageing. We’ve preserved the building’s original features and distressed finishes, sealing them under layers of glaze, styling our rooms with antiques and period pieces from across Asia. Floors range from vintage Battambang green swirl-motif tiles to very contemporary highly-glazed polished concrete replete with Persian carpets.
From the moment of arrival when you are greeted with fresh coconut water and a cold towel, to fine porcelain cups used for serving coffee and tea, to hand-cut crystal glassware, and the finest pure cotton and linen sheets and down pillows, you will discover that Bric-à-Brac is much more than a hotel; it’s an experience!
Our Orientale room’s name is taken from the French word for the Orient, or Northeast Asia and particularly China and Japan. Our recent renovations are inspired by the Japanese concept of wabi-sabi, embracing and glorifying transience and natural ageing. We’ve preserved the walls’ and ceiling’s rough grey concrete finish under layers of glaze, and styled the room with antiques and distressed period pieces from the Orient. The floor is very contemporary, of highly glazed polished cement.
Orientale features an antique hand-carved Chinese matrimonial bed, replete with an extra-large single/twin 7-layered wool and cotton futon mattress with latex core, cotton and linen sheets, down pillows. Of special note is the 7-panel Meiji-era screen along the room’s back wall. The en-suite bathroom has a shower with instant-hot water, and black matt walls. Plus private balcony to gaze on Battambang’s leisurely street life. Free high speed Wi-Fi, and ceiling fan an air con.
