Ban Bua House 2

Situated on the southern "coast" of the island with great views of the Chao Phraya River, Ban Bua 2 is a good choice for those seeking a relaxing and comfortable place to stay that's not too far from the ruins but well away from the backpacker strip.

The more expensive rooms are in a building right on the river and these offer very good value; each are spacious and spotless and come with shiny tile floors, cheerful art work on the walls, firm beds, small tables, air-con, TV, fridges, modern bathrooms and large verandas with chairs and river views. If you don't care for the view, a set of cheaper rooms in the back also come with plenty of space, air-con, TVs and private bathrooms; while comfortable, some of these are a bit dark and the front building rooms are a big step up for 200 baht. Staff make up for their limited English with a great, friendly attitude and they offer free WiFi and bicycles for guests. Ban Bua has a second location -- Ban Bua House 1 -- that offers similar prices and accommodation but is more isolated out on the west side of the river.
