Huanam Hotel

Could be worse

What we say: 3 stars

The Huanam is an old school budget Thai hotel in the heart of town. The location is its main selling point -- one block from the river and Indochine market and around the corner from the night market -- but rooms aren't all that shabby for the dirt cheap prices. The recent addition of free WiFi is pleasantly shocking (although we'd be surprised if it worked in the upper floor fan rooms). Fan rooms with shared bath are cramped and basic as can be with foam mattress beds and ageing shared cold water bathrooms, but they do at least have powerful ceiling fans. Air-con editions are worn but well kept and more than adequate for two travellers on a tight budget. These come with fridges, hot water bathrooms, desks, TVs and firm beds with the cheapo style blankets and pillows. There are no balconies, but air-con rooms have large windows facing an outcrop of shady trees. The hotel is run by an older woman who seems steely at first but warms up considerably if she likes you -- the secret is to smile. An internet cafe downstairs is available at 15 baht for 30 minutes. They also have a few mountain bikes for hire.
