I should mention first that we come to Udon Thani about once every year since it is my wife's hometown. We have stayed at the Napalai on various occasions and always considered it a fair balance between cost and service-not so any more. For some reason, ALL - and I mean ALL - hotels in Udon Thani have now adopted... More

First I looked at the revieuws and I did not want to stay Finally I booked a room for 2 days. Compared to the price you pay it is a good hotel. I don't understand why it has so many bad revieuws. It is much better than I expected.

I had taken the bus from Vientiane and had to catch an Air Asia flight to Surat Thani the next day so instead of going for cheap I went for convenient as the Napalai is very close to the airport. After my THB 80 ride in from the central bus station I was checked in by the very pleasant front... More

As stated by a number of reviews, the hotel foyer is about the only highlight here. Sadly you don't spend the night there although it was considered (joking) What I was really annoyed about was that on the web site I booked this hotel through(Agoda), there were pictures of a beautiful pool. Udon can be very hot so a pool... More

We stayed here on the night of our arrival. I had pre-booked at another hotel but it turned out to be not what I was expecting (bed like a slab) so we moved out and drove around Udon Thani. Fell upon this place by chance and really not impressed but I will try not to be too critical as Udon... More

This hotel would have been considered to be of a really high standard back in the 90s, perhaps it was even the best in Udon Thani. So yes, now it's a old and dated, both in terms of design and style. The look of the lobby may mislead you into thinking it's a 5 star hotel. Everything in the room... More

Went to Udon for business and stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Overall, the room was clean, apart from a small gecko on the wall. While the receptionists were quite reluctant in showing some friendliness during check in, the rest of the staff was nice. The typical Thai breakfast was average in quality and selection. Therefore, I took lunch... More

I am somewhat bewildered by the previous reports. What do you expect from a provincial 4 star property? Of course the prices reflect this and i thought it was good value at £25 for a deluxe room. The rooms have everything you need, shower, bath, minibar tv, wifi. yes they are a bit dated, but mine was clean. Will stay... More

This place is a bait and switch! Nasty! The lobby looks nice but then you get to the rooms "horror". Plus if you book on line it's $35 U.S dollars. They charged us $60 U.S as a walk in! We did not do our research because it was for one night! How bad could it be? Real bad! My friends... More

We just checked in to this hotel and jumped on their wi-fi to leave a review of our first impressions. The front of the hotel, the hotel lobby, and the all the shops/spa etc are very nice. Clean, well air-conditioned, marble and glass. Impressive! Then we were taken to our room. It's the nastiest rathole we've ever been in. The... More
