Central flashpacker digs
From the front, Pai presents itself more as a restaurant, but they boast a fairly elaborate resort out back that includes a small but stylish swimming pool area.
All rooms come with air-con, and all are modern and exceptionally clean. Medium size standards are in a two-storey hotel style building and these have comfortable beds and shiny white tile floors, but bathrooms are shared, making these only average in terms of value. If looking for creature comforts, however, Pai's spacious superior rooms have private pool entrances and come stacked with brand new amenities like fridges, flat-screen TVs and couches. Free WiFi is a available and the stylish cafe out front serves outstanding coffee, cocktails and decent Thai-Western food. The location couldn't be much better — right next to Chopper Bar and a stone's throw from the river and the pick-up point to the old city. A solid choice if you're looking for comfort and modern facilities without sacrificing the central location.
