What we say: 3.5 stars

The older women who run the old standby Hua Nam Hotel had modernised since our last visit by refurbishing the lobby and stairs with new tiles and hardwood touches, adding a coffee shop and installing new air-con units in some rooms. Rates were raised only slightly and now the Hua Nam stands as a very solid low-budget choice in a great location. Fan rooms are still cramped and basic, with foam mattress beds and ageing shared cold-water bathrooms, but they do at least have powerful ceiling fans. The air-con room that we peeped into looked well kept and right proper for the price, with a ceiling-mounted fan (in addition to the air-con), firm bed, tiny TV, desk, old telephone, clean wet bathroom with hot water and fairly large window. Free WiFi is available, and the friendly woman who showed us around made us forget the brusque receptionist from the old days when the lobby felt like a grungy high school hallway. The location is still a major selling point: one block from the river and Indochine Market and around the corner from the night market. Just down the street, the Submukda Grand Hotel has slightly larger rooms with balconies for around 200 baht more, while the SC Residence on Soi Anurak 2 is a better bet if you prefer serviced apartment style accommodation in the 500 baht range. But given the upgrades, we’d opt to save the 150 baht and stay at the Hua Nam.
