Aran Mermaid Hotel is an older style hotel and in its prime would have been one of Aranyprathet's grand hotels. However, like an aging maiden aunt, she is showing the years that numerous huge urns of fabric hydrangea and roses placed everywhere you step cannot disguise. The carpets are threadbare and the furnishings are chipped and worn. Having said that,... More

The Mermaid's staff were friendly, professional and accommodating. Another positive is that the hotel offers free, fast (3.5 mbps) wifi. Unfortunately, gracious service and internet access could not make up for what is otherwise a dilapidated hotel with ants, peeling walls and failing air conditioning. Moreover, the Mermaid is relatively expensive (750 to 1600 baht) as compared to higher rated... More

If you have a mold allergy, you probably want to stay away from this hotel. The wall paper in our room was covered with mold. There were also small ants in our bathroom and so woke up with them crawling on us. The wifi and breakfast were great.

Stayed here as part of a cycle trip, this was night 4 of 14. We called it the 'Russian' hotel due to its impressive décor and surroundings but lack of anything else to recommend it. The food was average and the beers they ran out of. In the end we pooled our last Baht's and it worked out we could... More

Very nice hotel and good service... good food and etc. I like. Not long way to Rong Kluea Border Market and Aranyaprathet City is a very nice place. Room price and quality are good. Peaceful place. I wanna go again to this hotel. At the same time I go to Rong Kluea Border Market shopping. Market is nice too.

I can't imagine that anyone stays in the Mermaid for a long time. Most guests seem to be heading to Cambodia or the border markets. So, you get what you pay for, and nothing wrong with that. Room ok, and housekeeping are noisy early risers so don't expect a lie-in. Anyway you need to get down early for breakfast as... More

My cycling buddy and I recently stayed at the Aran Mermaid Hotel on our cycling trip through Thailand and Cambodia. We paid 850 baht per night. The exterior of the hotel and lobby is very nice and clean. The rooms were very good, a bit small for the price, but bed was very very comfortable and the AC kept the... More

This hotel is ideal for getting ready to hit the border into Cambodia. Just around the Corner was a fantastic food stall that did the most delicious noodles we had in Thailand thus far. The rooms here are adequate, a little worn out but fine . good shower . Breakfast was just perfect. Fresh fruit, eggs cooked to order Toast... More
