Yes we're smiling

What we say: 4 stars

Tucked down a side street that runs behind the temple in the heart of the village, this plain three-floor guesthouse offers good deals on clean, comfortable rooms. Though lacking any sort of decor, all rooms are spacious, airy and fresh, with soft beds and pillows, proper blankets, hot water bathrooms, small TVs, fridges and two tables -- one inside the room and another on the narrow shared balconies. Fan and air-con rooms are more or less identical, with the corner editions being the best choice. This is a low key family-run spot with friendly, soft-spoken owners who aren't afraid to joke around a bit. One minor inconvenience is that a massive puddle seems to perpetually plant itself between the guesthouse and main road, though you can usually tip-toe around it. The guesthouse is surrounded by modest local homes and a couple other newish concrete hotels that aren't quite as good value as Smile House, though they should be acceptable if this place is full. Haad Sai Kaew is an easy walk from here, and one of Samet's best restaurants, Red Ginger, is less than 50 metres away. Rates jump by 100 to 200 baht on weekends.
