Floor-to-ceiling windows front the house on the ground floor, allowing for people-watching opportunities from one of the cushioned chairs or hammocks. Here you’ll also find delicate woodcarvings, an antique bottle collection and framed photos of revered Thai monks on walls painted a classic shade of cream. There’s even a vintage barbershop chair set up in the corner.

A cute interior.

A climb up the stairs takes you to a small number of rooms that are often full, as was the case when we last stopped by. In the past we’ve found them cramped but charming with tile floors and more of the old-style decorations. Relying on shared bathrooms with hot-water showers, they come with little more than firm beds, free WiFi and fans, with extra beds available for 150 baht.

Staff has a great reputation for keeping rooms clean and providing a full range of transport bookings. They’ve always greeted us with positive, professional attitudes, and their sound service is perhaps the biggest selling point of all. Simple Thai and Western dishes are available, and guests can help themselves to free bicycles and an instant coffee and tea station.

The location towards the northeastern corner of the old town offers a look at one of Trat’s more atmospheric lanes, which those not staying here tend to miss. We enjoyed photographing the peeling surfaces and Chinese shrines punctuated by napping cats and potted plants.
