Baan Talay is a popular guesthouse for those on a lower budget because of its quality rooms and good central location.
Staff are friendly and very helpful, and the rooms, available with fan or air-con, though no TV, are spacious and very well-kept. Opt for a second floor room where you'll have a private balcony rather than pedestrians forever wandering by your window. The upper floor also gets more natural light than the cave-like ground level. Baan Talay is far enough from the clubs that the bump of the techno bass is minimal but still right in the centre of town. Baan Talay also has a seven night minimum stay over Full Moon, long even for Haad Rin, but is nearly always fully booked anyway. An internet shop and travel agency is in reception and a good, well-priced spa is on the premises too.
