I stumbled onto King's Hotel in passing and ventured in for a single night. The location is within walking distance to 7-11's, malls, and many restaurants as well as crowds of night vendors.

The windowless room is equipped with AC, wifi, a mini fridge, a television, and a good sized bed as well as a closet to hang your belongings in. There are elevators on each floor (if I recall correctly) so large amounts of luggage shouldn't be a problem.
A group across the hall (and a few doors down) was quite rowdy and you could easily hear them from such a distance. The entire place smelt of cigarettes but after visiting some of Hat Yai's other hotels, this one is on the cleaner side (for those who aren't faint of heart). So, not spotless but clean enough that you can bare a night's sleep.

The wifi was a bit faulty and disconnected for an entire evening, into the later morning so I ended up having to leave the hotel to find internet access and accidentally left my passport when I did. My passport was returned at reception but all the money I kept inside of it had been taken out and was not returned.

I didn't take the time to try the restaurant or the massage that they offered but both places seemed to be full, so I assume the service was alright. :-)

This place get's a 50/50 in everything: "Not entirely clean but..." "Has wifi but..." "Offers this but..."

We stayed for one night in september 2012 on our way to Malaysia. We paid 600thb, for twin room with a/c, private bathroom and tv ,in the old wing of the building.
This was our third timestaying at the kings hotel in the last five years, and it will the last. We had booked a room for two nights, over the phone but when we arrived we were told by a very rude receptionist that we would have to move to a 1200thb room for the second night, and we had to pay now. We were not keen on this plan. We looked at the 600thb room, and said we would stay one night only!!!.
The rooms are barely acceptable, dirty. Smelly and dated. The bathroom could do with a good bleaching, from top to bottom and at 600thb well overpriced. In any other thailand town this hotel would have closed down, but being so close to the border they have they have a steady market and no incentive to improve.
During the night our air conditioning stopped working, and the guy from reception came to look at it. We were told that we had it on too low at 20degrees!!! ,and to leave it at 25 degrees. Finally after a sweaty and sleepless hour he grudgingly bought.a Mobile a/c from reception, and we managed to get some sleep .so not a great stay and in future we will be staying at the tune hotel, when we do visa runs.

We checked several budget places near the station - they're all a bit seedy and this was the cleanest of the lot. Though it could do with a hygiene check and general make over.

The room was double, ensuite + TV. Clean enough but aged and in need of improvement.

There was Wi-Fi which is a bonus and allowed me to find a great Full English nearby (The Swan) the next morning. (http://www.2fortheroad.co.uk/index.php/2012/01/09/malaysia-truly-asia/)

It's on close reach of the train station - which, if you're here, you probably are looking for. It's about a half hour walk from the bus terminal.

We have used this hotel since the 1980. The hotel has the oldest lift in hatyai town. We last stayed here in May 2012. There is no added facilities except that the hotel provides very basic amenities. A very friendly inhouse massage palace. From the room, you can phone for the massage service and the massage lady will appear at the door within minutes. If you want a good size double bed, friendly staff and quiet location then this is a good choice. If you want a safety stay, King hotel is far away from the recent trouble areas where the expensive hotels are situated.

Room tip: rooms facing the main road
