“Don't be fooled by the nice looking lobby area, the rooms are dated and dirty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2012

During our journey through the North Eastern part of Thailand, we stayed for one night in Korat and our travel agent recommended this hotel. Upon arrival, we were quite pleased with the grand and very nice looking lobby and bar area.
Unfortunately, once in our room, the picture was not the same at all. Our deluxe room looked dated overall and the bathroom was very dirty with other peoples hair on the floor (I'm not talking of the odd one out but many, many ...) and the bathtub/shower was covered in black fungus.

The breakfast, however, was nice and came
with lots of asian choices and an egg station.

On a plus, the hotel is one block away from a night market on the left hand side and a center with a very good supermarket and some restaurants on the right hand side!


I heard that this hotel is suposed to be the number one in this area but I strongly suggest to investigate further for alternative options.

In Korat (Nakhon Ratchasima) it is difficult to find a really excellent hotel. The Dusit Princess is such one and as far as I know it is the only one. The staff is friendy and helpful and all of them speak fluently English. The hotel is very clean and well kept, everything works perfectly. The rooms are spacious enough and the beds are of high quality. The AC is outstanding, it is the best AC I ever met. The breakfast is superb and once we had dinner in the current (big) restaurant: It was marvellous. The pool is not very large, but is OK for non-professional swimmers. I was astonished to get so much luxury at such a modest price. The only drawback is the location of the hotel: The hotel is at the city border. Taxis are a problem in Korat - you have to order them far in advance. But one can wait at the entrance for a bypassing empty tuck-tuck - this may take some time. The best is to walk to the bus station a few hundred meters in direction to the town centre.

I selected the Dusit Princess Hotel at Korat, because I know the top quality consistency of the Dusit Hotel Chain; unfortunately, this occasion was the exception.
The furniture and carpet in my room were old and the bath tub was full of black fungus, incredible I have never seen something like this. It's very clear that there is no enough supervision of the room and bathroom condition.

Room Tip: Look the room an bathroom at first, then you decide.

Our family enjoyed our 2 night stay even though it rained some of the time. There was still plenty to do even though the te;levision channels weren't working particularly well.
Close to the old city part of Korat and easy travel to the mall and markets.
A good market only a block away and some very cheap restaurants next door with excellent thai food.
Staff were superb and organised taxis, van travel etc whenever we needed it.
Did a great tour of local tourist attractions including Phimai. Hotel staff organised the taxi and all was very good. The driver took us to each stop and waited patiently, never hurrying us along.
Breakfast and room service food was excellent.

Room Tip: Ours was non smoking and 6th floor - all seemed good.

This is the second time that we have stayed here,the last time being in 2009 and the hotel has improved since then.
Staff are efficient and friendly,rooms are nice and comfortable,there is a gym and swimming pool and the bar area is quite cosy to sit in.The downstairs restaurant is fine and,not least,there is free internet !
As expected,drinks are a little pricey with the cheapest being 110 baht for a small Heineken(plus service charge and government tax) so I dont think that the hotel will have many problems with drunks,but maybe that is a pluspoint !!
The hotel is quite easy to find if driving from Khon Kaen and Chaiyaphum,being signposted on the Buriram road,so no need to struggle in the hectic traffic of Korat city centre.
If you wish to go to places like The Mall in the city centre for shopping,the hotel will arrange a saamlaw for you which saves the hassle of driving.
One place well worth seeing about 25 kilometres from Korat on the Buriram/Chockchai road is Dan Quian pottery market on the main road on the right.They have some beautiful and amazing pottery on sale at very cheap prices and you can easily spend a couple of hours or more there......dont forget to haggle on the price !
So I would definitely recommend this hotel which lives up to the quality brand name of Dusit hotels very well.

Room Tip: Check with reception what type of rooms are available at a price that suits you.

The Dusit Princess hqd polit staff most of whom spoke fluent English. Check in was efficient, the restaurant buffet dinner was good, but a little on the expensive side I thought. The bar and loung had excellent staff and very good music, but the decor was a little generic. The rooms were bigger than averaga, and well taken care of. I would definitely stay here again.
