It’s not all bamboo shacks on Don Dhet. Baba Guesthouse is a modern two-storey building that is a reasonable stroll from the boat landing but far enough from the crowded tourist strip.

Baba Guesthouse fits the mould of a classic guesthouse room with tile floor, solid walls, air-con and WiFi. Rooms are clean, simple and tasteful, each with a private balcony. The upstairs rooms are high enough to get a view to the river, while the ground floor rooms are offered privacy by a row of lush tropical plants.

Upstairs and downstairs options are available.

Should you prefer fresh air, get an upstairs room as it’s safer to keep the balcony door open and use the fan and mosquito net. There’s a small fridge and a few bits of wicker furniture. Bathrooms have hot water showers.

All this clean comfort will appeal to flashpackers though the price is firmly midrange and pricey for such a plain room, especially in high season. Breakfast is not included either.

Interiors are functional and clean.

Nevertheless, Baba is clear of the flaws and frustrations that plague many of the nearby cheap guesthouses and for that, it’s highly recommendable for Don Dhet.
