Stayed here for just a night but it's a really nicely run hotel with a friendly owner. Great for anyone on a budget in Udon Thani.
- Free Wifi
- Free Parking
It was close to the town. Very clean and the owner was very helpful. Nearby are quite a few traditional Thai eateries. Local taxi driver took me out to some nice locations for photography. A nice stay.
I was a bit apprehensive at first as a single first-time traveler to this part of Thailand. I have to say though, I felt welcome and comfortable in this friendly hotel. Staff spoke English and were helpful with advising me on places to see and travel arrangements; I would certainly recommend Nong Pra Jak Park and Udon Sunshine Orchid Farm (those plants are out of this world!!). It served as a good base to explore cultural sites of northeast rural Thailand. Can't go wrong!
Being located in Isaan, Thailand's poorest region means that all hotels are jawdroppingly cheap for a westerner. JanCondotel consists of bedrooms with fridges and airconditioning, but NO kitchen. If you stay monthly, you pay for the water and electricity at the END of the month, and then the daily reduces substantially ! I chose it for it's location, near NongPrajak park, where there are breakfast hawkers in the morning and massage shops in the afternoon and free aerobics at 6 pm ! It is NOT in the centre of Udon as the other poster stated, it is a 30 Baht TukTuk ride or very long walk to "Robinsons" Complex, the central shopping mall. JanCondotel is located down a small soi (alley) opposite the Udon Museum, and has small shops and the ubiquitous 7/11 not far away. AirConditioning units are not as strong as in other hotels but are OK for the fierce Isaan hot season days. There were several mosquitos in my room, but malaria is not a problem here, but i ended up very spotty after first 3 days, until i spent ALL night on a mozzie hunt. Very clean, quiet place. There are cheaper places, but it was ideal for me, and the price was day , was excellent ! It has no lift (elevator), or water delivery, but water is available opposite.
Yes i recommend it !
I regularly stay at the hotel for business. It is located in the city centre, which makes it a good base for lots of different places in Udonthani.
It's within walkable distance to Nong Pra Jak Park , which is a really nice place to relax and unwind on the way back from work.
The facilities are relatively basic, but the hotel is modern and comfortable and has a nice quiet atmosphere with helpful and friendly staff that make you feel very welcome.
I can recommend this hotel.
