I called this hotel the same afternoon I was arriving, as I had just crossed the Thai boarder in Chian Kong, coming from Laos. The lady readily accepted the telephone booking, based on the promise that I would turn up by 6 PM. Location was super, 2 blocks from the bus station in the center of the city, but still surprisingly quiet. Obviously not a romantic setting, but the pretty hotel close to the night and day market makes it up. My superior room on the 2nd floor went for 650 Baht and was one of the best I stayed in so far: tasteful decoration, nice bed and good mattress (for once not too hard, but neither too soft), hardwood floors, different kinds of lighting from bright to cozy, fridge, fan and AC and - last but not least- a beautiful bathroom! The staff was extremely kind, I had my laundry done in one day, free Wifi with 2 PCs available for those w/out their own and great communal areas both on the ground floor and on terrace on 1st floor. Breakfast was not included, but available for 150 Baht, so really a minor detail.. I wasn't feeling well when I arrived, so added a 2nd night and the stay in this hotel put me back on track, would definitely recommend it!
