This is the closest we found to a full-service hotel in Kratie — including a pool! Just under two kilometres away from the town centre, and the riverside, River Dolphin is one of those set-ups that is right in principle, and while a little peculiar in practice, they do offer comfortable rooms at very good rates, and the staff were fantastic.

Budget travellers will enjoy the downstairs rooms that were the best value for money that we saw in Kratie — and free transport to the riverside further sweetens the deal. For just $5, these spotlessly clean rooms have good comfortable mattresses, good linen, flat screen TV and private bathrooms. As they’re in the basement, they’re also pretty cool even while there was a furnace burning outside when we visited in April 2016. Upstairs, you can upgrade to a similar room — that is, no windows — with air-con for just $12, while bigger rooms with balconies and fancier features start at $35. We did find the walls a startling shade of turquoise that works beautifully in light, airy spaces; not so much in a closed, windowless room. We can only admire the intention.

Downstairs, the small pool was a delight to find, and the only one we saw in Kratie town. A lush garden fronted the bar and restaurant area, which had the kind of generic feel that reminded us of a ferry port cafe, which seemed a shame. However, again the staff were excellent — the most polished we saw in Kratie — and the food was good. Don’t order the wine though. They even have a small air-con fitness room, with weights and machines, and were the only hotel we’ve seen that advertises themselves as pet-friendly.
