Thawesuk Hotel

Feels haunted

What we say: 3 stars

The centrally located Thawesuk Hotel is one of the strangest places we've ever reviewed. The older woman working the front desk appeared shocked that we wanted to check the place out, but she did grudgingly oblige. Upstairs, we were led down a long, airy hall with high ceilings into a common area with an old broken ping pong table pushed against a wall and several articles of second hand clothing strewn about on the floor. The dirt cheap single fan room is reminiscent of an early 20th century hospital room with a thin white mattress on a steel bed frame, an ancient card table perched against the wall with one disproportionately sized tiny chair and a window that faces a brick wall. The room has a melancholy, almost ghostly vibe. On the other side of the building facing the street we were shown a massive renovated air-con room with high ceilings, polished dark hardwood floors, a fridge, a clean, renovated hot water bathroom, and two firm twin beds adorned with homemade bed spreads. This room is actually good value, but it is a quirky one. One thoughtful feature is how they closed off the front balcony with glass doors, so while light still shines in the room and the balcony is still accessible, the sound of street traffic is minimised. It's almost worth staying in this place just for the novelty of it — it's guaranteed to be memorable at least.
