The city is home to one outstanding guesthouse along with a couple of other interesting spots and a smattering of ageing hotels. Value is generally good, which you'll appreciate if coming from a pricey bungalow on Lipe or Langkawi.

On's Living Room
Backpacker - Under 600B
14/22 Burivanich Rd, Satun
T: (081) 097 9783

On's Living Room is one of several good reasons why heading to Satun after your beach time on Langkawi or Ko Lipe is a fine idea. Smack in the middle of town, the friendly guesthouse/restaurant/bar is devoted to making foreign guests feel comfortable in this non-touristy city. Even if you don't stay here, you'll probably stop by for one reason or another. Our go-to spot in Satun. The... Read our full review of On's Living Room.

Bandahara Boutique Guest Hotel
Flashpacker - 600B to 1,500B
45/27 Satun Thani Rd (just south of Soi 14), Satun
T: (074) 723 777-8

The Guest Hotel label fits the Bandahara, which falls somewhere between guesthouse and hotel. Either way, it offers much better rooms at the same rates or cheaper than the nearby Pinnacle. Opened in 2014, Bandahara has a small number of second- and third-floor rooms with a modern, minimalist design that includes shiny white tile floors, white walls with tasteful floral paintings, LCD TVs,...

Satun Tanee Hotel
Backpacker - Under 600B
90 Satun Thani Rd, Satun
T: (074) 712 309

Satun's flagship budget hotel had received some upgrades since our last visit, including a shocking orange-and-green exterior paint job. While it's not winning any style points, the old Chinese-style place isn't a bad option thanks to an excellent location and dirt-cheap rooms that offer more than we'd expect. Located up a few flights of stairs and down halls that will remind you of a prison, or... Read our full review of Satun Tanee Hotel.

Sinkiat Buri Hotel
Midrange - 1,500B to 4,000B
50 Apainurajrumluk Rd (just off Burivanich in the centre of town), Satun
T: (074) 721 055-58

Opened in 2013, this giant concrete block still didn't look completely finished and felt empty when we last passed through. The building lacks the slightest shred of character, but rooms are among the most comfortable in Satun. With hardwood floors, good-quality beds, desks, wall-mounted flatscreen TVs, bureaus, minibars, safes and modern hot-water bathrooms with rainshowers, you won't be wanting...
