Quirky, fresh and cheerful

In a cheerful pale yellow building just north of the city centre, the long-established Day Inn has a quirky charm.
Don’t judge the book by its cover – given its facade we assumed it would be out-dated but once inside we were pleasantly surprised. The building was once the Embassy of India; now it feels like a casual beachside resort with its rattan furniture, bright colour scheme and breezy design that gives it a tropical vibe. The 30 rooms all come with air-con, WiFi, flatscreen TV, vanity/desk, wardrobe, bedside tables, fridge, balcony and bathrooms with modern fixtures. 10 rooms have large, sunny bathrooms with a big tub. Walls are all freshly painted, the floors gleam and rates include breakfast in the attached restaurant, a retro-fabulous eatery with seafoam green walls, funky chandeliers and a diverse menu of Asian and Western dishes. This place has a certain uniqueness that some will love. It’s located just behind Lao Plaza Hotel, close to That Dam, and it’s well worth the five-minute walk from the city centre.
