Accommodation



Phetchaburi

Downtown Phetchaburi hosts a handful of guesthouses and hostels that should do the trick for most backpackers. The city’s collection of more typical hotels is rather dismal; the Swiss Palazzo or the cheaper Royal Diamond could work in a pinch, but neither have particularly convenient locations.

If you don’t mind a 20-minute walk into town, the English-speaking owners of 2N Guesthouse offer impeccable service and spotless rooms that are a solid step up from digs in the downtown guesthouses for only a little more cash. More of a “bed and breakfast” than a “guesthouse,” the charming property includes six rooms on both floors of a beige concrete building set beside the... Read our full review of 2N Guesthouse .

Located across the road from the entrance to Phra Nakhon Khiri Historical Park, Ferngully is a small hostel with a welcoming vibe and cheap air-con dorms. It greets you with tables, lockers, high ceilings, a large map painted on a wall, bicycles and a kitchenette with microwave and coffee/tea facilities in a ground-floor common room. Speaking fluent English, owner Fern also offers a rooftop... Read our full review of Ferngully Hostel.

The largest of Phetchaburi’s downtown guesthouses, JJ Home is divided between an old wooden house with spartan fan rooms and a concrete building across the road with good-value air-con rooms overlooking the river. Situated upstairs in the main building on the inland side of the street, the cheapest single rooms are cramped with a window, spring mattress, tile floors, portable fan—and...

Set beside the river in the old town, the curious but friendly Sabaidee Resort made some changes in recent years by replacing some of their old bamboo huts with air-con rooms in a longhouse-type building. With thin blankets on firm beds, TVs and small hot-water bathrooms with sinks mounted out in the bedrooms, the newest rooms are small but clean and adequate for the price. For 100 baht...

The White Monkey offers a modern alternative to the old-style guesthouses clustered just up the street in the heart of the old town. The small guesthouse occupies a couple of rowhouses in a newish concrete building that looks incongruous on the inland side of this narrow riverside lane otherwise defined by old wooden houses and the historic Wat Phlap Phlachai, which is right next door and...
