“Value for money - very friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

The hotel is not very well located but is still easly accesssible by car (the hotel provides good directions when asked by e-mail). Reception staff speaks good english and is very helpful - next to the hotel several good restaurants are available as well as an australian run bar (the Walrus) with good atmosphere. A good place to stop over in KOrat on the way north or east

Rooms clean, staff nice and breakfast good. Bit far from town is the only downside - but it is cheap for what you get and that makes the Raya Grand a winner. The Thai BBQ place across the road is good for dinner, just ask the staff for a few pointers if you are not sure what to do.

I have been on the road more than 6 months now and this was the best Thai buffet breakfast I have had so far. Rooms are spacious and clean. Shower not so good and the Thai live music outside is quite loud but easy listening so it did not bother me for getting to sleep.

There are lots of nice Thai restaurants in the same street (mostly fish and barbecue) The restaurant next door "Walrus Pub" is a friendly place with decent food and a welcoming owner.

I booked this hotel without realising it is about 8 km away from the busstation and town. Taxi's and Tuktuks seem to charge 80-120 THB but the local bus (song tauw) cost only 8 Baht, get the white car with the big number 1 on the front.

I've tried most Korat hotels over the years and always keep going back to the Raya Grand. Staff here are simply the most friendly and courteous staff of any hotel in all of Isaan. Rooms are clean, beds extremely comfortable (by Thai standards), and AC works well. Ample free parking with parking attendant most times. Extremely cheap and excellent laundry services provided same day. Good Thai breakfast, but they really need to do something about the horrible coffee. Fantastic "farang" bar with good food steps away, same side of the road as the Raya Grand towards Seubsiri. This hotel is a model of what Isaan hotels should be.

Stayed overnight on way to Bangkok. Good clean modestly priced hotel with larger than normal well appointed rooms.

Our internet booked package included free internet and breakfast.

Internet worked OK in room.

There is ample undercover parking.

Breakfast was adequate but more Thai style than Western and this also applied to the restaurant dinner menu.

The restaurant staff and reception staff are happy and cheerful and provide an excellent level of service.

We would stay here again without hesitation.
