“Good value for money”
Reviewed 12 April 2013 via mobile

We stayed one night in Trang. We booked our room next to the train station, it was easy and good price.
Rooms were clean and good, everything was worth of the money. Location is good, you can easily walk to the night market and other locations. Also while Trang is a "link" to north, it is nice to take early bus/train.

We stayed here one night on our way to Tarutao Marine Park. Our room had AC but no window, which really didn't bother us at all. For a price of 550 Baht for double room, My Friend Guest-House was good value. The room was in ok condition, and the location just next to the train station worked perfectly for us. The service wasn't maybe the most cheerful that we encountered in Thailand, but everything worked well.

In the evening there was a market 50 meters from the guesthouse, where you could taste local food and look around without someone walking pulling your sleeve saying "my friend my friend, just the best offer for you" (which tends to happen all the time in Bangkok's tourist areas). It made our stop at Trang a good addition to our trip and My Friend Guest-House a place worth staying.

We arrived without a reservation, and we're quickly checked in to a twin room with fridge, air con, bathroom with hot shower and tv. The bathroom was spotless, and quite nice. The room was clean, with two bottles of water, soap etc. the cost was 550 baht, quite reasonable for the accomodation and location. The service was a bit distracted, but reasonably helpful. The amazing night market is about 500 meters away but didn't disturb us with any noise at all, the hotel was silent and we had a great sleep.

Triple room with a/c 650THB, good value considering you get toiletries, a fridge, comp water. The room was very dated and had broken tiles & damp throughout, it was also extremely noisy - perhaps due to the location of the triple room? The beds were comfy however & it was clean enough. The staff were pleasant and the free wifi is a bonus. Favourite aspect was the communal outside terrace area, we bought dinner from the night market (10-15min walk away) and brought back to eat there. The train station is 2 mins away and bus station a short tuk tuk ride.

We had dedided to stop in Trang on the way to Koh Lanta, so glad we picked My Friend guest house. We had a lovely big room,very clean with A/c fridge for 550 baht. The staff were very helpful and gave us a map of the town. Had a great dinner and breakfast at the restuarant of th e Sri Trang ( about 200m away). I especially recommend the friut platter.

As we had to stay an unintended night in Trang, we were advised to stay here. Paid approx 500thb for a spacious twin room. No frills, but clean. Locationwise perfect, a supermarket nearby and within walking distance to everything. We didn't quite understand the breakfast included bit..were unsure if this was the bananabread and nescafe in the lobby so we ate elsewhere. If you're looking for a cheap, clean place to stay if in Trang, if wouldn't hesitate to stay here. PS; remember to ask for a room with windows as not all have this.
