Phitsanulok accommodation recommendations

We are planning a 26-day trip to Thailand for February 2015, and apart from a few days in Bangkok, will be focusing on the north. We plan to include Phitsanulok. As we don't know the area, we would be most grateful to hear from anyone who does who can recommend pleasant, clean, well-located budget accommodation for a mature age couple. We usually budget on AUD 30 or so per night (except for Bangkok, of course).

Thanks in advance.

I stayed once in "Topland" Hotel, what is a big and bit older hotel but right in the city center. Then next to the famous temple is "Yodia Heritage Boutique Hotel" what I think is not a budget hotel, but nice hotel and good location. I also stayed once at "Amarin Lagoon Hotel" what is out of town and old. The last time I stayed at "Ayara Grand Palace Hotel", also in the city. This is a modern not too expensive hotel.

When in Phitsanulok, I like to stay close to the river, in the centre, within walking distance to the night market and the restaurants on the river. But, not so easy to find good budget accommodation around there.

Grand Riverside Hotel, about 1.500 Baht.

Amarin Nakorn Hotel 600 Baht (very old hotel)

Amarin Nakorn is really a old dump now. Would recommend NOT to stay there, although the location is good.

Have you got a travel plan to visit Phitsanulok in your mind? It would be nice, if you can give me more details about the places would you like to visit. So, I can recommend the most suitable hotel for you ^_^. If you want to stay in the city center, there may be no new hotels for in this price. As far as I know, there are many old hotels and not expensive in the city center, for example, Amarin Nakorn hotel, Pailyn Phitsanulok hotel and LiThai guesthouse. Moreover, there are quite many new boutique hotels around the city such as Phuthong hotel and Boon Me heritage.

@#6, do a search on Agoda for Phitsanulok hotels. Then find the link to "view on a map" and study the map display. That will show you hotel names and prices. You can then work on Agoda prices and reviews, and TA reviews and photos, to get ideas.

Regarding Phitsanulok, I'm not sure if there is the perfect hotel there. At least I haven't found it yet. (I like reasonably spacious rooms, a nice breakfast, modest price - e.g. between 500 and 1000 baht in provincial capital cities, location convenient to train & bus stations, a few key features in town (In Phitsanulok that would be Wat Yai, the Buddha Casting Foundry, the Folk Museum, and the riverfront/night market) restaurants, and a park.) From the park aspect alone, that isn't likely to happen in P'lok. Though the riverfront could be a substitute, I suppose. The best compromise that I've found so far may have been the Pailyn - just expect it to not have been renovated yesterday. There are still a few candidates for me to work through on future visits.

But if you study TA and Agoda reviews, prices, and photos, you should be able to decide what to select. And you have a helpful offer in response #5 from Phitsanulok resident Cucuty, to help you with ideas.

Though I haven't yet found the perfect lodging, I *do* like Phitsanulok. For its own attractions and for its convenient access to Sukhothai and other areas.
