Photo: Surin is all about elephants.



Surin has a couple of great guesthouses to go with a handful of hotels. Note that during the elephant festival rates generally go up by 30 to 50% and reservations are recommended.

Baan Chang Ton Homestay
Backpacker - Under 600B
47 Suriyarat Rd, Surin
T: (087) 459 8962, (087) 239 2011

Baan Chang Ton opened in 2015 to offer a homely alternative to Surin’s big and boring hotels. Set in an old wooden house down a quiet side street to the south of town, the homestay is fronted by a small cafe serving fresh coffee and a shop where owner Pop displays her charming hand-sewn bags and dolls for sale. From there you enter a very spacious living room with black-and-white photos,... Read our full review of Baan Chang Ton Homestay.

Maneerote Hotel
Backpacker - Under 600B
11/1 Soi Poy Tang Ko, Krungsrinai Rd, Surin
T: (044) 539 477-9

Located just off Lak Mueang Road and a five-minute walk southwest of the market, the Maneerote is a fairly large hotel with huge, fresh smelling rooms and a lift at budget prices. Though lacking in character, rooms are airy, bright, spotless and equipped with firm but comfortable beds, TVs, fridges, desks, large mirrors, free WiFi that works great, bureaus and spacious balconies with large...

Pirom-Aree's House
Backpacker - Under 600B
55 326 Soi Arunee, Thung Poh Rd, Surin
T: (044) 513 234, (089) 355 4140

Long-running Pirom-Aree’s is known for two things: warm hospitality and a difficult-to-find location down a dirt road to the north of town. The guesthouse feels more like a homestay and is set in a wooden house surrounded by pleasant gardens. The well-kept rooms are basic fan-cooled deals, and cold-water bathrooms are shared. A simple Thai menu is offered in a tiny restaurant where you can chat... Read our full review of Pirom-Aree's House.

Surin Majestic Hotel
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B
99 Jitrbumrung Rd, Surin
T: (044) 713 980

Hotels next to bus stations are usually dives that are only good when you're too tired to go anywhere else. The Majestic sheds that stigma by offering some of the comfiest rooms in town along with great service and a large swimming pool. The cheapest room (they call it a deluxe but it's really a standard) that we checked out was spacious and clean, with big windows, spotless tile floors,...

New Hotel
Backpacker - Under 600B
6-8 Thanasan Rd, Surin
T: (044) 511 341, (081) 878 7301

Sporting a vintage two-person lift in a faded lobby, the bright-orange New Hotel’s name is misleading. This old budget hotel has stacks of rooms stretching far back from the elephant statue roundabout in front of the train station. We checked out a few rooms; one smelled extremely strongly of cigarette smoke, another was dark but acceptable and a third was unexpectedly fresh and bright, with a...
