If you are thinking of staying in Lopburi as a tourist, don't, you can visit it in half day.Go on an arrange trusted bus tour from BKK because trains are slow and it could take you half day just to travel. The hotel is 5km away from the station and the attractions and the only way from station seemed an overpriced taxi (200BAHT), but there is a cheap bus (read further down).
If you are used to staying in Thai guest houses this will probably be a treat, but it's NOT a Boutique resort.
So first the good things about this hotel:a decent cafe that will cook you food until about 7pm, food was not bad when cooked on the spot; tv in the room has only Thai TV but it's a good TV. Bed is comfortable enough; bathroom is decent; room and bathroom seem quite clean; great air conditioning at least; wifi is fast enough but if you have multiple devices use other room's login details to avoid reaching the limit of devices connected; if wifi does not work just ask the staff to restart it; rooms seem to have a table with two chairs and a dressing table with mirror and chair.
Now all the negative stuff:too far from the station and attractions(but other guest house seem worse); staff with bad English; breakfast served in open air with flies and birds around; bed sheets clean but old and some had stains; towels had stains; fridge in room is noisy; room is quiet, no noises from the outside, but other guests are noisy when walking to/from their room and maids shouting at each other while cleaning.
Bus from station: walk right when you come out of the station and all the way to the end of the road, you can catch a bus (small one that carries people sitting on benches at the back, you can weave at it when it goes past you and it will stop anywhere. You just pay 8BAHT at the end when you get off.) and get off after the 2nd roundabout near the Ford centre. Enter that street (orange sign at the end of the road) and walk 200m.
