Possibly the most famous guesthouse in town, this large, longstanding guesthouse is an okay choice for families or travellers willing to pay a little more for some minimal creature comforts.
Rooms here are nothing special though — they're a tad uncared for -- and some of the bathrooms are pretty grimy. They are however a decent size and have quite a few extras like telephones and cable TV. Overall Top North may be resting somewhat on their laurels and the place has seen better times. The very friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere are the place's biggest assets, with the large pool also a bonus. Incidentally, Tintin and Captain Haddock stayed here in the spoof comic Tintin In Thailand.
