Thai Hotel Nakhon Si Thammarat
Reviewed February 13, 2012

The Thai Hotel is easy to find, it rises up from the wholesale/market area between Nakhon Si Thammarat station and the main road, Ratchadamnoen, with highly visible signage.

I arrived in need of a good night's sleep and asked reception if they had a quiet room. Although I was politely told no, this is a city hotel with city noise, I decided to take a chance and was glad I did. A giant bed awaited my small son and I (although it is two beds pushed together it was really comfortable) and the room looked out over the top of the market (just a bunch of roofs, nothing to see there) and part of a temple - really quiet at night and only distant traffic sounds.

Oh - there are a few hospitals nearby so you do get ambulances sirens often. Since we were there to visit a family member in hospital I found it strangely reassuring. And you'll probably hear the call to prayer from the mosque - I went to sleep and woke up by it.

Staff are welcoming, though the restaurant is a bit Fawlty Towers. The western-style breakfasts aren't much and the juices were heavily salted and undrinkable, but the Thai food is good. Room service is a bonus too.

The decor is dated but I liked it - 80s art deco? Enough space to roll out a yoga mat, a desk and chair to work at, plenty of cupboard space and a comfy sofa. TV yes, fridge/kettle no.

Oh yes, and there's something interesting on the 2nd and 3rd floors of the hotel but as per post below maybe I shouldn't give it away.

I'm writing this from another hotel around the corner, thought I'd try it out, but I'll be moving back to Thai Hotel tomorrow.

Oh, one other great thing about Thai Hotel is its proximity to Hao cafe and Nang-Len cafe across the street in Bovorn Bazaar. The Fuji store is a cheap place to get photos printed and there's Thai massage just behind it. Thai Hotel is also a 20 baht motorbike ride to Ocean department store.

Did not see any of the other hotel options in town, but am quite happy about his Place. Staff is friendly, although their English isn't great. Rooms are clean and cleaned daily if you want them to. The ac rooms are good value for money for 450 baht. If you stay here, be sure to press the 2 or 3 button in the elevator at least once. Presented quite a surprise to me!

The Thai Hotel offers basic, clean rooms with or without all the amenities and a central location. The train station is a block away, it has the main songtau route on one side and a walking street with food and trinkets available most hours of the day and night. Rooms are plain and dated but clean and adequately appointed and half to a quarter the price of other, newer, flashier hotels.

Room Tip: Rarely need hw or ac

There are few hotel options in Nakhon, and the Thai is amongst the better.

The furnishings and decor of the hotel are tired. The facilities speak towards Soviet era styling. But, the staff do clean reasonably well.

The rooms are quiet(ish), but the bathrooms could do with a bleach makeover (funny that SE Asian hotels seem not to know the benefits of bleach).

The hotel staff were eager and helpful. Generally, there was one on duty that had a reasonable command of English.

Access to information about the city & region is abysmally poor. You really need to have to go to Thai Tourism, tourism at City Hall, AND speak to locals to get any idea of even the basics.

There are some great restaurants in Nakhon, but few locals seem to know where they are located.

Cheers

Staff is not friendly, they only understand English when it's in their favour.
Rooms are not clean, how do I noticed? My feet were black, but seriously black as I walked around in the room. A mice was also present in the walls which kept you up all night!
Now if you don't want to pay much, say like 300 baht per room it's value for your money.
