Those with a little more cash to flash should look no further than Rimklong, which offers good value for high quality accommodation that would easily go for 2,500 baht or more on Ko Chang.
With a central old quarter location, the intimate, single-floor hotel has a handful of massive rooms decked out with a classy design that incorporates luxurious beds, tasteful European renaissance art, dark wood furnishings and stylish slate slab walls in bathrooms with modern appliances. All rooms are equipped with air-con, wide LCD TVs, fridges and sitting areas with tropical ferns outside. Our only minor complaint is the limited amount of natural light that shines through lone windows in most rooms. On the other hand, the on-site air-conditioned coffee shop has wall-size glass windows and is a pleasant spot to while away an hour with a friend, book or laptop.
