Papao Guesthouse

Papao Guesthouse

Best in town

More on Tha Khaek Loop

Our previous review named Papao Guesthouse the best in town, and that title still remains.

Travelfish says:

A front gate and the family home guard the property, and the well-maintained exterior of the two-storey accommodation is a good sign for what lies inside. As expected, the rooms are neat and tidy, with fluffy comforters adorning the beds, box TV, table and chair, mirror, air-con and spacious hot water bathrooms with Western toilet.

The rooms were sparkling when we saw them: shiny tiled floors, plenty of natural light and neatly painted walls. This is an excellent option and an excellent price for both backpacker and flashpacker alike.

As with all Nakai guesthouses, Papao Guesthouse is located outside of the centre of town. At the three-way junction head east for a kilometre. You’ll find the guesthouse just past Tolex Guesthouse.
