Three J Guesthouse

Run by the likeable Mr Charin and his family, Three J is tucked down a side street to the east of the new city.

While not exactly central, the quiet location is a manageable one km walk to the riverside and a fairly easy bicycle ride to the ruins. Rooms are in the form of simple attached log cabins, each with a comfortable bed, proper quilt, basic hot water bathroom with Western-style flush toilet and a few endearing touches of decor. A family room comes with more space and a fridge, and some rooms have their own table out front. While the rooms are quite small, the guesthouse offers generous common areas filled with quirky knick-knacks, potted plants, couches, tables, throne-like wooden chairs, cable TV and no shortage of interesting artwork. WiFi is free and guests are encouraged to use a well equipped communal kitchen. The whole experience is elevated by the warm hospitality and intoxicating enthusiasm of Mr Charin and his family. A veritable wealth of information on the area, he provides guests with quality maps and directions for independent exploring, rents out bicycles and motorbikes, leads tours around the province in a colourful 4X4 Jeep, and offers the Khlong Mod Daeng Garden farmstay program in a rural area to the west. The fact that Mr Charin offers these experiences without trying to push them on guests is admirable. Three J has only 12 rooms and they sometimes fill up during high season, so it's a good idea to call or email ahead. Note that if Three J is full and you're not able to spring for any of the pricier hotels in town, Ratchadamnoen Hotel on Ratchadamnoen Soi 4 has grotty rooms for under 300 baht -- if you can deal with the karaoke.
