Unique guesthouse right in town

What we say: 3.5 stars

Loong Poj is easy to find at the corner of Kamlang Sap and Ruangrat Rd, and what it lacks in amenities it makes up for in style. The owner is an interesting young artist and musician, so the communal guitars and unique décor of the lobby come as no surprise. Rooms are similarly decorated with stylish colour schemes and dark hard wood floors. Some of the walls even feature well done murals of old Ranong street scenes. Rooms are also very clean, but other than comfortable double beds they don't come with anything more than a couple wooden chairs. Along with the small size, the main downfall here is that rooms are windowless, and the value is questionable given bathrooms are shared as well. Street noise could also be an issue for rooms towards the front of the building. Oddly enough, air-con rooms are the same price as fan rooms, so the fan versions seem especially overpriced, at least by Ranong standards. Still, WiFi is free, the shared baths are clean and there are numerous showers so waiting around in the morning is not a problem, and the owner provides excellent service to guests. He also runs a travel company and rents out motorbikes, and he's currently adding several new rooms towards the back of the building along with a large garden and restaurant. Loong Poj is an especially good choice for solo travellers.
