The Raming Lodge is centrally located, walking distance to the old down and the night bazar. The rooms and bathrooms are large, breakfast is surprisingly good and service is competent and friendly. It provides good value considering the hotel category and price point.
My room (superior, second floor) was pretty large with local, wooden furniture. It had a TV, small safety box (won't fit iPad or laptop), kettle and fridge. The king-size bed consisted of two beds pushed together, with a noticeable gap. They are firm - as often found in Thailand. The bathroom was also large, with local, slightly rustic tiles. The room was clean, but the towels and linens were a bit worn and could use replacement. The room and bathroom had small windows to the alley, leaving the room fairly dark - which may or may not work for you. The A/C worked fine, but is turned on/off by inserting the room key.
The service was very competent (more so than other mid-range hotels in Thailand), front desk staff was fluent in English (also better than average) and very friendly (same same as elsewhere).
The breakfast was a pleasant surprise and offered a wider variety than other hotels in this category.
The pool is located across the street and looked fine. The spa was under construction. The spa prices seemed well above other establishments in the neighborhood and I didn't try it.
Overall, the Raming Lodge was very good value and offered an above-average experience for this category of hotel.
