My fiance and I started here for nearly a week. The room was good, clean with a fan and bug screens. The attached bathroom was nice. The receptionist had a lot of good information about things to do. Would recommend to another traveler on a budget.

We stayed for a week in that place because it is just incredible, the place is relax, the location is great and the staff was very nice. We shared the room between 2 friends, 150 Baht each, our own toilet and shower, hot water, comfortable beds, VERY good Wi-Fi. I totally recommend this place! And I've been travelling for 2... More

Staff amazingly friendly staff. very accommodating. Place is very close to main attraction right in the old city.Walking distance to Sunday walking street and many restaurants and even 7-11 right outside. Current new owners are very helpful and one can fell they are putting a lot of effort in making sure that my stay was good. In short, superb value... More

Convenient location, very friendly and helpful staff and nice rooms. Stayed here 3 separate times spread over a few weeks. Kept coming back for the price, convenient and easy location, as well as the security. I stayed in 3 different kinds of rooms- A/C room was great as well as the fan only room since there are secure screen doors... More

Ground floor room within court yard, no natural light, wire grills on all windows and the door made it feel like a prison. Toilet was filthy on arrival, had to ask for cleaner to re clean it and had a stained, cracked seat. Bath mat looked like it had never been washed. If on a budget and cleanliness not an... More

Not clean, they must have forgotten to clean the room and only changed the bedding. We stayed in a ground level room. The first floors rooms are nicer (which they showed us when we booked, but that's not what we got). On the plus side the shower is really hot. So hot, that you even have to turn it down.... More

the new chinese owner takes care for everything! The location is the best, everything is near by but silent in night time. The room is basic but good enough and inexpensive either. A coffee shop with bakery is close by at the main street, you can reach it easily through the hidden back door.

We stayed here for 4 nights in June 2014 and it was great. The couple who run it are really friendly, they booked our tours for us, organised a scooter too and gave us tips on which waterfalls were the best. The rooms are simple and clean (there are a few ants but nothing to worry about) and it's super... More

The Somwang is in a lane just off the main drag, so nice and quiet at night. Otto and Air are very obliging, and while they try to sell you tours etc, they are much cheaper than anywhere else. We have stayed here 3 times in the last few years, and they even collect us from the airport, and drop... More

We stayed here for three nights. Very good location but still quiet at night. The rooms are simple but clean. There are a few ants but nothing to complain about. The owners are friendly and helpful. The laundry service was great. We rented bikes from the guesthouse which were 10 baht cheaper than other rental shops in town. Nice place... More
