Praiwan’s Homestay Orchid Guesthouse

Finally, a little personality

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

What we say: 3.5 stars

At the time of our visit in February 2012, this budding guesthouse in the old city was not what you would call a finished product; the common area was a somewhat random mix of seating areas, with display cases full of various odds and ends, and little stands that may or may not eventually function as places to sell drinks. Rooms are similarly eclectic, with mix-and-match furniture and varying amenities depending on what room you get. However, for the price of 150 baht a night, this guesthouse delivers what so many are looking for in Phrae: an inexpensive, guesthouse-style place to stay inside the old city walls. Though the rooms are all basic, with fans and shared bathroom, the beds are comfortable enough and even have mozzy nets. If you are interested, you can easily arrange lessons in Thai, cooking, or even violin. The teacher and proprietor, Praiwan, is very sweet, very helpful, and VERY talkative, and maybe just a little crazy -- but a little crazy is a welcome change in a town awash with bland, generic accommodation, and the location inside the old city a block away from the night market really can’t be beat. Stop by and say hello; you’re bound to get an interesting conversation out of it, if nothing else.
