With an excellent location and a decent list of amenities in the flashpacker-range rooms, Kasemsarn displays that old hotels can be successfully revamped for modern times.

The fairly large three-floor hotel stands a block west of the riverside old town and across the street from the fantastic local cuisine served at Chanthorn Pochana. A coffee shop joins reception, a roofed car park and garden seating on the ground floor. The upper two floors have corridors surrounding an open centre where trees branches, vines and orchids add some ambiance.

Reached by stairs, rooms sport a business-style design with hardwood floors, no decorations, desks with cushioned chairs and unfurnished balconies accessed through sliding glass doors. Firm beds have two pillows for each guest and these have different degrees of softness—we appreciated the choice and slept well.

You also get a few English channels on flatscreen TVs along with fridges and slippers, but no hot-water kettles or safes. Our main complaint was how the small and old air-con unit struggled to cool the room in the early May heat; it took an hour or two to reach a temperature that we found comfortable. Bathrooms are cramped but you do get hot water in the walk-in showers with curtains.

Kasemsarn offers family rooms that sleep three and extra beds are available for just 200 baht. There’s also at least one suite with abstract art and daybeds in separate seating areas. The room we stayed in was clean. The WiFi annoyed us by requesting a password to re-connect every time we used it; for the most part it worked okay once connected.

Uniformed staff did a terrific job—everyone from the parking clerk to the English-speaking receptionists and staffers who hold the doors for guests offered smiles and approachable attitudes. Rates include breakfast and we found the set-menu options better than your average Thai hotel breakfast fare.

If you don’t mind staying a lot further from the old town, Riverawan Hotel has rooms of a higher standard for similar rates, while Chanthaburi Center Hotel is a characterless spot with similarly equipped rooms for less cash near the bus station. You could also consider the KP Grand, a larger business hotel with dated rooms for more cash and a pool on the east side of the river.

We noticed that Kasemsarn’s rates fluctuate often on booking sites; below we’ve listed their rack rates but do poke around online for deals.
