Sasanan Homestay

Cute cottages a short walk from the canal

What we say: 3.5 stars

More of a mini-resort than a homestay, Sasanan is located at the western end of Phracha Uthit Road near Chaipattana Park and Rama II Park and a two minute's walk to the canal. All six rooms are in the form of small wood cottages clustered around a driveway/garden, and all of them are a little different. The cheapest ones are tiny but pleasant with dark green carpets, small windows, colourful bedspreads over springy mattresses and tiny TVs. All have cold water bathrooms and toilets are flushed by pouring water inside, so things are a little more basic here than other spots, but at least you get a private bathroom for rates similar to those charged by most of the canal-side homestays with shared ones. A couple of pricier rooms offer enough space for the whole family and fridges. Limited English is spoken and the sign out front is only in Thai -- look for the white-walled cottages set close together around tropical plants and a tiny car park. Rates are negotiable on weekdays, although the manager wouldn't give us specific numbers.
