Rabieng Restaurant and Guesthouse

Very rundown but still worth a look for budgeteers

What we say: 2.5 stars

A more than 120-year-old teak house on the river converted into a guesthouse and restaurant, Rabieng is the place to go for information about the area and also for tours to Kaeng Krachan National Park. Rooms are small, extremely basic (our room was missing a window!) and have little more than incredibly hard single or twin beds. All use the shared cold-water bathroom facilities downstairs. Rooms have more than their share of dust and cobwebs, but have that true wooden guesthouse feel. The downside is the formidable traffic noise, as the guesthouse is also located on a busy street. Upon check-in, the very friendly English-speaking owners Tom and the more mercantile Nid (who has a serious Facebook addiction!) provide you with a map of the city and will answer any questions you might have before you go out to explore. The restaurant has a lovely balcony -- Rabieng is balcony in Thai -- looking over the river. Prices are reasonable for the standard and the restaurant is also popular with locals come the evening. Tom's music collection is solid. Many choose not to stay here because of the state of the rooms, but definitely eat here.
