Away from the lake, in the centre of town, Northern Lake is very convenient for the bus station and has the vast, night, food market setting up right on its doorstep so it is not a bad choice if you don’t want to pay lakeside prices and you can’t manage to find Win.
Huge and very much generic, this must have been Phayao’s top digs when it first opened, but that was clearly a while ago and these days it’s faded glory survives by offering discount rates for what, at best, are adequate rooms. Having said that, if the rooms, and hotel generally, hadn’t seen better days then you wouldn’t be getting air-con, WiFi, hot shower and en-suite bathrooms for 400 baht! That’s an improvement on paying 1,200 baht for a room with no windows at a lakeside ‘homestay’ but Win, if you can find it, is better.
