Guesthouses, hotels and resorts

Most of the dirt-cheap rooms in Trat's atmospheric old quarter will remind veteran travellers of the Thai guesthouses that were far more prevalent back in the 1980s and '90s. Up in the City Centre, those who prefer a more straightforward cheap hotel will find a couple of options.

Trat, old quarter

Most of the guesthouses are clustered along the old quarter streets of Rhak Muang and Thana Charoen just south of the city centre. It's an easy 10-minute stroll from here to the markets. We've listed our favourites of the cheap spots, but you'll find several others and there's often very little to differentiate one from the next.

Trat, city centre

A few large utilitarian hotels are found in the middle of town near the hospital and markets. While this area lacks the charm of the old quarter, it places you closer to the bus station and is suited to those who prefer large Thai-style hotels to small guesthouses.
