Pa Thong Suk has 2 kinds of rooms: Fan rooms on the left & Air conditioned rooms on the right.
Unfortunately, I booked the fan room. The rooms on the left wing are basically an oven, the room temperature inside is always higher than outside. It is great if the guest house is located in Iceland and not Thailand.
The roof has some very thin material not even qualified as insulation. The heat is trapped all day and all night. Without the air conditioner, the little fan above does NOT help. What it needs is ventilation.
If you want ventilation, you have to open the curtains, that means, this is a case of ventilation vs privacy. Once you open the curtain to get the ventilation into the room, you are losing your own privacy. Everybody outside sees you including the owner and the people coming to the bus terminal.
If you do not open the curtain, the heat will keep circulating inside. You will have a taste of inferno sensation. I guess the local people are OK with this level of heat, not me from the Northwest.
There are 2 things nice about this guest house
1. close to the Sokhothai Bus Terminal
2. free bikes provided for customers who want to go into the new town
You may wonder how do I survive this inferno affair?? I took showers once every 2 hours. The cold showers really helps in cooling myself down and to get rid of the sweat.
After a tour trip this afternoon, I requested an upgrade to an air conditioned room, the staff okay'ed but the woman owner refused, saying my request came in too late --5;05pm
What else can I do? cold water showers help.
Another bonus on this guesthouse are ants are everywhere, table, my laptop and the bed.
