Sri Isan Hotel

Solid choice with a great location

What we say: 4 stars

The Sri Isan is an old hotel that’s been lovingly restored in recent years. The modestly classy four-storey building has an open centre stretching up from a spacious lobby with several tables, a single shared computer and a piano. Some wonderful framed photos of Ubon’s people and places adorn the walls, and the original ceramic tile-patterned railings have been preserved. Rooms were all repainted and given newish (but cheapish) LCD TVs to go with decent beds, desks and mini-fridges on light-blue tile floors. Some of the building’s old pokey bits have been kept, like the shorter-than-normal wooden doors accessing cramped private bathrooms with toilets oddly placed behind shower curtains and hot-water showers situated closer to the sinks. The cheapest rooms have only tiny glazed-glass windows facing a wall; we recommend shelling out for a “junior suite” with a large window, small sofa and extras like hot-water kettle with complimentary instant coffee and a scale for seeing how many kilos you’ve put on thanks to Ubon’s great food. Ceilings are fairly high, rooms drafty and air-con units rather weak -- even at full blast the air-con may not keep larger rooms as cool as some would like during hot season. We also noticed a few scuffmarks but overall the rooms are clean, and the ants that several reviewers have reported were not present in the room we stayed in. Rates include free coffee and toast in the morning, and WiFi is free but patchy. Staff can be friendly with excellent English or standoffish with minimal English, depending on which person you get. The location is excellent, a short walk to the night market and riverfront with some good cafes just up the street.
