Easily overlooked Thai Guesthouse has comfortable rooms, a strategic but quiet location, personable owners and a homely vibe that we found refreshing after checking out the larger places to stay.

All that’s missing are river views.

Staying at Thai makes a lot of sense if you plan to walk or bicycle around town: the location places you within a five-minute walk of the nightlife strip, night market and train station, while the war cemetery and old town are a 10- to 15-minute stroll to the east. Despite being so central, the guesthouse is situated at the end of a narrow lane and stays quiet at all times.

Rooms are plain but clean and functional, with firm beds propped over tile floors, TVs, tables, clean hot-water wet bathrooms and bamboo chairs on front terraces. Go for a ground-floor room if you don’t like stairs, or opt for the second floor for an extra notch of privacy. There’s also one wood bungalow-type room set next to the main building that was full when we stopped by. All rooms come with air-con and free WiFi.

The family owners put out trays of free instant coffee and snacks in the hallways and may offer a taste of their home-cooked Thai meals if you show an interest. They often sit around chatting with guests and neighbours in a wooden sala in the miniature garden that fronts the house.

If Thai is full there’s a good chance they’ll offer you a very similar room at Siam Guesthouse, which is owned by the same family and located a few steps across the lane—it had just opened at research time. If staying at either place, start your mornings with a terrific cup of coffee at nearby Gravite.
