Udon Hotel

An old standby

What we say: 3.5 stars

The old Udon Hotel likes to advertise the fact that it opened in 1972, even if it hasn’t changed much since then. While it’s hey day came and went a long time ago, the big box-like building is worth considering if you want to stay in the non-touristy part of town and save cash without sacrificing air-con -- or if rooms at the smaller places are all booked out. We checked out two rooms and one smelled strongly of cigarettes, but the other smelled fresh and seemed clean and reasonable for the price. They all come with soft foam beds, large windows (upper-floor rooms may get you a view), desks, fridges and dark hot-water bathrooms with tubs. Served in the drab lobby next to an unexpected garden courtyard, the buffet breakfast goes for a reasonable 50 baht per person. While the place may be somewhat depressing, the receptionist who greeted us was friendly and spoke comprehensible English. There’s also a coffee shop and free WiFi, and the quiet location puts you within a 10-minute walk of Nong Prajak Park. If you like old-school concrete hotels and have more to spend, you might splash out for the nearby Ban Chiang Hotel, which has a swimming pool, fitness and karaoke bar to go with ageing rooms for around 1,000 baht a night.
