Accommodation

Tak

As Tak caters predominantly to travelling salesmen and local business people there's no guesthouses to speak of. However there's a handful of decent hotels and the prices on offer are pretty fair -- just don't expect the Hilton or the Marriott.


Suansin Garden
Backpacker - Under 600B
1km from Tak centre
T: (055) 511 864

Located about 1km out of Tak's centre, Suansin Garden is best reached by tuk tuk from the bus station. Once at the hotel the staff will help you with maps and transportation into the centre; ideally you'll have your own transport unless you plan to go absolutely nowhere. Fortunately it's the kind of hotel which promotes that kind of lifestyle with gorgeous grounds and a laid back resort feel. Set... Read our full review of Suansin Garden.

Viang Tak Riverside
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B
236 Chompol Rd, Tak
T: (055) 512 507

Also known as the Viang Tak 2, this is one of the swankier options in Tak, with enormous comfortable rooms. The highly recommended deluxe rooms have 2 double beds, TV, air-con, fridge, hot water, and enough room to swing a cow -- or two. Rooms are spotlessly clean. Prices include breakfast. The hotel itself consists of two structures, the old and new wing. The old houses superior and standards... Read our full review of Viang Tak Riverside.

Kaoloy Golden Park Hotel

Tessaban 3, Off of Phahol Yothin Rd, Tak
T: (055) 517 461

Set back just off the main through-road in Tak, besides a huge lake and beautifully manicured gardens is this 'travel-lodge-esque' hotel. The rooms are new, comfortable, and with all modern amenities, On site is a branch of the Black Canyon Coffee shop franchise, great for the morning caffeine buzz! With its complementary newspapers in the lobby, and breakfast included, it's a decent value hotel,... Read our full review of Kaoloy Golden Park Hotel.

Sanguanthai Tak
Backpacker - Under 600B
Taksin Rd, Tak
T: (055) 511 153

This place is perhaps a step up from the Mae Ping, but don't expect silk sheets! It's cleaner and slightly more visually acceptable, and has a decent location. The rooms are stereotypical cement box jobs, but most rooms have a television which at least provides some colour images to look at rather than staring at the ceiling. All rooms have en-suite bathrooms. They have a few rooms which have two... Read our full review of Sanguanthai Tak.

Mae Ping Hotel
Backpacker - Under 600B
Mahadthai Bumrung Rd, Tak
T: (055) 511 807

The Mae Ping is probably the worst place in town, but that doesn't mean it's terrible. Located in the centre of Tak it's identifiable by a wooden shed reception area tucked back off the street, with rooms running down and away from the road in a cement block. The rooms are old and small, and some have a stale aroma, but when you consider the price, location, and the friendly staff it doesn't seem... Read our full review of Mae Ping Hotel.
