A bit off the center (1,5-2 km), closer (15 minutes walk) to the city lake, so recommended if you either like to walk (the area is local but safe and nice, some budget hotels around but nearly zero foreigners), have a vehicle, or would like to take a Grab taxi every time. Rooms are basic, but large, clean, and more than OK considering the price. There's an elevator so going up won't be a problem even for older people. Small area to sit in front of the reception (but away from the main street as it's kind of "inside" the building) is nice. Wi-Fi is good. The staff speaks very limited English, but probably it won't be a major problem if you've reached Khon Kaen at the first place. There's a nice Chinese temple across the road, Big C mini, 7 eleven and some local restaurants are not far away (5-7 minutes walk), for more options, head towards the lake. Overall, liked this place and would stay again if in Khon Kaen.…
I got a tuktuk from the out of town train station, and boy was I glad I did. Not only was it pouring rain but the tuktuk driver knew the place. I'd have had trouble finding it as there was no sign visible. The receptionist spoke almost no English but checkin and checkout went smoothly. The 4th floor room was spacious, and clean except for a cigarette butt on the shower floor. The bed was comfortable and I got a good night's sleep. My only gripe is the wifi. It's one of those "open" networks that tell you that you are connected when you ate not, while simultaneously directing you to a sign in page that won't load. Even with help from reception I managed to connect only once in many many attempts. Other than that, a basic decent hotel at a budget price.
If you don't mind your furniture a little on the rustic side, the Dee Mar is a fantastic place to stay. Super-clean, nice friendly staff who leave you alone, free bottled water, complimentary coffee with hot or cold water, huge spacious rooms, large comfy beds, great location - and it's cheap! Cannot rave enough about this place.
Came back to this place. Still ok. Fan room with big bed still 280/night. Incl daily house keeping incl 2 water and coffe or chocolat in the morning. The Only down side would be all The torned towels provided along with some cigarett buttholes on the bed sheets:) But apart from that quiet clean for the money spent.
We stayed here for 2 nights and had a standard double room with a fan. The room was huge had a view of the town from our balcony and it was clean. The downside of it was that the room was hot the fan didn't really do much but we have had worse and for the money you have to expect it's not perfect. But in general you get what u pay for and for a couple of nights u just cannot complain. The location is right near everything all the markets and train station very convenient. One last thing the laundry service is fairly expensive so I would go else where for it .
