“Back to basics”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

Stayed here with a group - we rented 3 standard rooms. As there were 6 of us, we initially thought of getting 1 single room and 1 family room - which the receptionist said could fit 6. Ended up when we went into the room, there were only 1 double and 1 single beds in the family room - considering the extra cost to add extra mattress - we decided to split and get another 2 standard rooms instead. That was a good thing, as the family room was still reeking with cigarette smell.

Expect basic stuffs - towels, drinking water, basic toiletries. Overall, the rooms are clean. It is quite near to the Diana mall, Starbucks and McDonalds just within the walking distance. Tuk tuk to town centre, where the Lee Garden is will cost THB20 each person one way.

Hotel staffs are fairly friendly, not all can speak English - but with basic sign language - you should be able to convey your message (with fingers crossed).

Prices were very affordable and with that range, we can't complain much - THB870 for Standard Room, THB980 for Deluxe Room and THB1070 for Family Room. Surcharge of THB500 for peak/public holiday.

If you are driving, parking is limited at the hotel front, but you can always park by the road next to the hotel.

The Winstar is probably the best affordable hotel in Hat Yai. It is located about a block from the Diana Department Store and walking distance (during day) from the main bus station. It costs about 700 baht.

Its on a main street so getting transportation (tuk tuk, motor bike) is quite easy. There is a really affordable Thai open air restaurant across the street so food should not be an issue. Here is my take:

Pros:
1. Close to bus station and large mall.
2. Affordable (although you can pay 600 Baht or even 500 at other places. Just make sure to see room before booking).
3. FREE wireless internet

Cons:
1. At night, nothing happens around the hotel. The main area in Hat Yai is right by Novotel and Central Festival Hotel.
2. Does not seem they distinguish smoking/non-smoking room.

I would stay one night but if I was staying longer, I would explore. HY has many hotels.

Was recommended by my friends for it's value, location, and rooms.

For my partner and I, we paid 600thb after negotiating some discounts.

Arriving in our rooms, I thought that it was quite clean an decent. Decor was mainly oriental.

I was actually quite pleased with the hotel (though I didn't like the fact that I saw a baby cockroach despite the room being so clean).

That aside, this hotel is right smack in the heart of town, so you can head out to the shops with just a few minutes walk.
