The S.A. Hotel is a better-than-average Chinese-Thai budget hotel that remains a reasonable options for those looking to stay near the markets in the city centre, as opposed to one of the homely guesthouses found down in the old town.

While decoration is limited to a grandfather clock and some wall-size maps in the dated lobby, the floor-to-ceiling tinted windows rimming every room are unexpected in a hotel of this low-end calibre. If you’re up for using the lift that smells of 1987 (ah memories), we suggest going for an upper-floor room so that you don’t feel like a fish in a glass bowl facing the car park.

Get an upstairs room for more privacy.

Utilitarian rooms with zero decoration sit in a barrage of white—walls, beds, trim and tables lacking any hint of colour and the tiled floors are either white or a light shade of tan. If you don’t mind the lack of colour, the air-con rooms are clean and solid for the money thanks to high ceilings, plenty of natural light and decent beds—we slept well here during a previous visit to Trat.

The hotel had upgraded to small flatscreen TVs in the air-con rooms since our last visit, but don’t expect many English channels. The free WiFi was reliable for us. Hot-water bathrooms are small and dated with a wet-room design that’s typical of hotels like these. “VIP” editions are essentially family rooms sporting three double beds and these represent the best value. Avoid the fan rooms set in a separate bunker-like building out the back.

There’s a small coffee shop serving Thai food along with basic Western breakfasts, and you’ll find some tables for checking email in the lobby. One of the old-town guesthouses would be the way to go if you want to meet other travellers, but S.A. will do the trick if you prefer to keep to yourself.

The receptionists have been welcoming and helpful to us on multiple visits. We once pre-paid for two nights but changed our plans and had to leave after the first night, and they returned the second night’s charge with no issue. The usual onward transport bookings are also available here.

If you prefer to stay in the city centre but could go for a more modern room for more cash, the Trat Center Hotel is a comfortable but similarly characterless option set a bit further north.
