Nakhon Phanom

Though lacking a helpful guesthouse oriented towards foreign travellers, Nakhon Phanom has some solid riverfront hotels and cheaper options in the centre of town.

The P Hometel
Backpacker - Under 600B
508 Si Thep Rd, Nakhon Phanom
T: (042) 512 508

The P is a newish cafe and hotel with half a dozen rooms reached by a narrow stairway and key-card entrance. Young Thai staff keeps things artsy with a vintage piano and funky photos in the ground-floor coffee shop, and at least one of them can speak a little English. While the hipster vibe doesn’t extend upstairs, rooms are spacious and very bright thanks to large glass doors with wood trim... Read our full review of The P Hometel.

Baan Rim Khong
Backpacker - Under 600B
78/1 Soonthornvijit Rd, Nakhon Phanom
T: (042) 521 400

527 Soonthornvijit Rd, Nakhon Phanom
T: (042) 513 564-70

The Viewkong occupies a cavernous six-storey building that was the first major riverfront hotel to be built in Nakhon Phanom. From the dark-grey tiled hallways that reminded us of our long-since torn-down elementary school to the massive yet dreary lobby with music that made us feel like we were on a carnival ride, it was all very dated at research time. And yet, the rooms just might be worth the... Read our full review of Viewkong Hotel.

Windsor Hotel
Backpacker - Under 600B
272 Bamrung Mueang Rd, Nakhon Phanom
T: (042) 511 946

The centrally located Windsor was by far the best out of the three old-style budget hotels that we checked out in Nakhon Phanom. A trio of staffers enthusiastically welcomed us in the lobby: one of them even struck up a conversation in English that went beyond the usual exchange about room rates. After a ride upstairs in a grumbling old lift that’s not for the claustrophobic (you might want to... Read our full review of Windsor Hotel.
