Thepnakorn Hotel
Ranked #16 of 20 Hotels in Buriram
Reviewed April 26, 2012

After reading the reviews on this hotel i was a little dubious about booking it but as myself and my partner needed to visit her family just north of Buriram in the ban dan area I took the plunge and booked four nights in the thepnakorn Hotel.

The room i stayed in on the fourth floor was of a decent quality, the aircon was good and the fridge was stocked with drinks that were of a good price. There were also no hotel tags on the drinks so if you needed a quick can of Singha you could replace it the next day with a can from the 7 11 if you were quick enough.

The staff when i had cause to speak with them were all very friendly with smiles on their faces, the breakfast was a bit boring each day but it was tasty food and lets face it, I couldnt expect a full english in the middle of Buriram.

The outside restaurant was very nice, decent food with good prices.

The pool is the gem of the hotel though. Its a nice size and was very quiet every day . Its also a sun trap for those whom want to get a tan.

Stayed: April 2012, traveled as a couple

its like going through a time warp a little,i have stayed here more than 10 times,as i live in a small village and like to have a swim ,with a hotel that has got a swimming pool,have stayed on the top floor ,nice,the rest of the floors well need updating,breakfast after 2 days bored ,toast with sweet butter,ie butter that contains sugar in it .so went out most times and skipped the breakfast,the staff are ok a little to over friendly when they think they know you,to which i thought they lack a little respect,ordered vodka by the outside bar,well it was not vodka and i was sitting next to a English man with the same drink,we got the bottle,Good brand name but they must be filling the bottle up with a cheap Thai copy Vodka.

Room Tip: go there its ok but go out for your food.

This was the worst hotel I have ever experienced.......rude staff, lazy house keeping, poor cold breakfast, so called free WiFi kept being switched off and worst sin of all you have to ask for toilet paper every day. Basil Fawlty would feel at home here but we did not!

This place is cheap but there is much better in the wonderful town of Buri Ram. Try the Jintana resort.

This is an aging hotel in the process of renovation. They've started on the top, so the 8th floor is appointed like a typical american hotel, but floors 2-7 need some attention. I think all rooms on the 8th floor are called "luxury" rooms. The property has a nice pool and restaurant. And I would bet that this is the nicest hotel within at least an hour drive. The staff are eager to help, but speak very little English so aside from checking in and checking out it's hard to communicate other tasks like laundry, etc.

Room Tip: 8th floor - Luxury Rooms

We walked in and were able to get a room easily. Our room was on the 8th floor, but the elevator only went to 7. I saw a room on the 7 th floor, and compared to the newly remodeled 8th, the walk up 1 floor was worth it.

this place is awfull, but the best of whats available in buriram.
you have to have vouchers/tickets for every thing...towels, breakfast....when i pulled the swimming towel out of the bag at the massage place by the pool, a rat jumped out! the toilets at the pool are also used by the staff and so disgusting ...there is no where to stand to get changed because the floors are filthy. pool very good and clean. the whole outside areas need jet washing and cleaning. breakfast average, but you have to hunt for every thing...run out of bread,bacon,sausages, seats...yes i had to sit outside!
this place is used my coach tour companies so the average stay is 1 night per person, and unlikely that any body would ever come back to stay again, so they dont care.
the reception is large and impressive, but every thing stops there! the whole place is dated and tired
