Somphamit Guesthouse

Our rating:
4 stars, based on 1 expert review

Somphamit is a good backpacker pick and while the rate still doesn’t compare to the rock bottom prices found on Don Dhet, you get what you pay for as the newer riverfront bungalows are well appointed and comfortable.

These riverfront options are solidly built wooden structures which are neat and tidy affairs. They come with a private tiled bathroom equipped with an electric heated shower, a vanity that does double-duty as a bedside table, windows, electricity and both fan and air-con.

It’s close enough to the main house that WiFi may reach the rooms. Of course, there are the requisite hammocks that will make you feel you are lying over the water because the bungalow is in fact, at times, over the water.

The older fan-only bungalows are set a few metres back from the banks. They are tidy and with a hot shower, a little tired, sunbaked and small with flimsier walls. It’s not bad, but again, you do get what you pay for.

Whichever you choose, all in all Somphamit is a good budget choice and it has a central location in the middle of the tourist strip. Nothing in this area is far, however it is easier when returning to your accommodation from dinner in the dark.
