Fresh and professional
Pakbeng, main street T: (081) 212 624
All renewed and nicely presented, DP Guesthouse is the most modern-looking guesthouse in town – and the opening rates are excellent value.
It's located in the first white building you see on your left as you climb up the road from the pier. This once stock-standard guesthouse was tweaked and reopened in December 2014 with a glossy new finish and abbreviated name (it was formerly Duangpasert Guesthouse). Everything has been given a new paint job or a polish. The clean rooms have new laminate flooring, the hot-water showers have shower curtains and a bedside table even doubles as a small desk. The comfortable beds have new linens. Because it's owned and operated by Shompoo Cruise, the reception speaks English and is more professional than most in town. A February 2015-opened adjacent flashpackery restaurant serves Western fare.
