stayed at the Khon Kaen hotel for one night, ready to check out as I write this. You can tell by walking in the lobby that this isn't a newly built hotel, the lobby (although clean) has got 80's written all over it. I had this booked by a friend living in Khon Kaen, because the hotel I wanted to check into was full for my first night. (Ruean Kanyarat Hotel), so I was fearing the worst for the rooms but I was positively surprised, these rooms have obviously been renovated and although they are now starting to show some wear and tear (a chipped tile and furniture here and there), they were more than sufficient for my needs. Fresh white linen, good aircon and a decent view from the 7th floor, (tip: ask for an uneven roomnumber if you want to view towards the city center). The free in-room wifi was lightning fast. Small but nice bathroom with a great shower head, steaming hot water and hot water in the sink which is kind of rare in midrate hotels in Thailand, handy for shaving. Just a showercurtain and no seperate shower cabine, so expect to wake up in the middle of the night for a toiletbreak and go back to bed with wet feet. There's a disco in the front of the hotel and a nightclub in the basement, but from my room on the 7th floor I had no noise whatsoever. Location? not too bad, very close to the busstation (50bath 5minute tuk tuk ride), and a 10 minute walk to the Kosa hotel (the center for shopping and drinking, 10 minutes more to the Central shopping center) If you don't like to walk in this heat, tuk tuks are widely available. One big downside: breakfast was terrible, completely geared towards the Asian guests with noodles, friend rice and rice soup on offer. The few Western dishes were simply terrible, spongy toast, cold fried eggs and some sausages and ham. The coffee was good though. Conclusion: at 850 a night including (a terrible) breakfast and free wifi the hotel is to be recommended for a short stay. Clean modern rooms and superfast wifi. Tip: skip breakfast in the hotel, walk out on the side of Sync nightclub, turn left and then right at the big Honda (could be Toyota) motorbike shop, 20 meters in the street on your right side there is a german-thai restaurant called Duan which does excellent western breakfasts and thai food.

Its school half term.......teenage son bored staying around the house.....what to do to alleviate the boredom and wont cost the earth ?
Well,maybe spending a few days at the Khon Kaen Hotel could be the answer.
Rooms start from 700 baht including breakfast for 2 people.
I think this hotel was the best in Khon Kaen some years ago and is a little tired looking now.However,if you go with an open mind and dont expect too much luxury then you will be fine.
The hotel has facilities like a restaurant,massage/spa,nightclub and a disco/bar place called "sync" which seems popular with the younger crowd.
You are a little away from the centre of Khon Kaen but there are several eating and drinking places nearby.
For shopping,a saamlaw (3 wheel taxi) will take you to Central Plaza for just 50 baht.
If farang (foreign) restaurants and bars are more your scene then get a sangthaew (taxi) just outside the hotel,going left,and after 3 or 4 minutes get off opposite the rear of the Charoen Thani Hotel.......cost is just 9 baht.
Walk through the Charoen Thani car park and keep bearing left towards the Kosa Hotel and you will come across quite a few foreign eating and drinking options.
The hotel was fine for a few days relaxing break.The aircon worked well,although a little noisy and the staff were friendly.

I intended to stay one night, but the room was so comfortable I stayed four nights. The staff were all excellent and buffet breakfast was what you would expect, not the Ritz but certainly okay.

I stayed here twenty years ago and it was a bit run down then and I guess it has been re furbished since. My room was cosy, clean and a great shower with a bath.
The street just outside the rear entrance had many food stalls and the open air restaurant of the sister Hotel the Roma was nice to relax with gentle live entertainment.

The nine story Temple, Phra Mahathat is well worth a visit, the young tour guides there were just great at speaking English. And a nearby street Market that seems to be open all night is worth a visit.

The Hotel has a room which is called the "Harem" and late in the evening you can pay a beautiful young lady 200 baht to sit with you for an hour, you will of course have to buy her a drink. The live band and singers in the Harem are excellent and the seating very comfortable. The girls are a bit reluctant to go with a Foriegner unless they can speak a little Thai.

I was sorry to leave this Hotel as I felt so comfortable here.

It is located a little outside the centre, i came across it walking from the bus station, and the price was very reasonable 600 baht. It is the old top hotel that has been overtaken by much more illustrious and central competitors. The fixtures and fittings are a little dated, but i was impressed that there was a bath instead of the usual shower. There is a sexy show each evening with katoey lady boys , singers, but it is not at all sleazy, well a little bit hehe. Very good breakfast is also included and so for anyone on budget i finf this an outstanding choice !
