Good value, hotel-style
314 Thaton Rd, Tha Ton T: (086) 188 8484, (087) 188 8445
If you feel more comfortable in a hotel-style environment or simply must have air-con, then white-and-yellow Thung Tong is the place for you.
Although basically a generic sales-rep-type hotel, both the interior and exterior are better maintained and decorated than the average in this class. The air-con rooms are clean and spacious, and come with attached hot shower bathrooms plus WiFi. Rooms on the upper (third) floor have great views across Tha Ton’s rooftops -- there’s not much higher than two storeys in town. Thung Tong is functional and lacks any sort of pizazz, but it's an exceptionally good deal and may especially be useful during high season when the best options in Tha Ton fill up fast. You'll find Thung Tong on the north side of the main street behind a minimart, which doubles as reception. The location is close to the town’s cafes and transport. Staff are friendly, but not a lot of English spoken.
