Quiet spot near the hot springs

Less than five minutes past the hot springs, the Rim Than offers cheap but well equipped rooms in a relaxed, family run setting right next to the river.
The mint green, white tile floored wood bungalows come with air-con, small and simple hot water bathrooms, fridge, TV, desk, and small front porches. Although there are a couple larger rooms that sleep up to four, most rooms are on the small side, and they could be cleaner. The spring beds are also not the most comfortable, but for the low prices these rooms are well worth it. An extra 100B for a riverside room is also worth it as these have windows that open directly over the picturesque river so you can dirft off to the sound of gentlly gushing water at night. Sweetening the deal, all rates incllude breakfast, WiFi is free, there's a pleasant restaurant on site, a staircase providing direct access to the river, and the resort rents out motorbikes for 250B per day.
