What we say: 3.5 stars

The Smile is our favourite of four newish, similar guesthouses set in shophouses where Khong Kha Rd meets Uttarakit Rd. All rooms come with fans (no air-con here) but are very pleasant and clean. The 250 baht room with shared bath that we checked out has large windows, a soft bed and framed photos of children splashing in the surf. A huge room on the top floor comes with private hot water bathroom, three single mattresses on the floor, loads of natural light from many windows and grass mats on the floor, and it's very solid value for the money. The woman in charge is exceptionally friendly and she offers guests a couple of great chill spaces to go with free WiFi. If Smile is full, Nailin Guesthouse offers similarly cheap and simple fan rooms next door, though they seem to have a problem keeping the reception area staffed.
