Ban Mongkhon

Terrific budget option

What we say: 4 stars

Centrally located within sight of the bus stop and morning market, Ban Mongkhon’s rooms are equipped with air-con, fridges, tiny TVs and even hand-painted waterfall murals -- all for less than a ticket to Pha Taem National Park. The family-run establishment has a few different room options, with the cheapest set in a log cabin near the road and the best occupying an attached building across the car park with sectioned roofs and big private porches that make each room look almost like a freestanding villa. Even the low-end rooms are fairly spacious and equipped with firm spring beds on tile floors, several screened windows and basic hot-water wet bathrooms. The villa-style rooms come with two double beds and are great for families, and there’s even a room that can accommodate up to 12 people. Overall the rooms we saw appeared well taken care of. The guesthouse also offers free WiFi, shared computers, free bicycles and a small restaurant serving breakfast for 50 baht. The young man who showed us around spoke a little English.

If Ban Mongkhon is full, walk a bit further east and inquire about Apple Guesthouse’s more drab but acceptable budget rooms, or perhaps walk a little further to check out Once Upon a Time’s rooms in an old wooden house. Note that Ban Mongkhon’s sign reads, “BANPAGMONGKHON”.
