Comfy and convenient
Set in a rather ugly orange, brown and green four-storey building directly across from the train station, the Jaroensin has comfortable rooms in a great location.
Though lacking any shred of decor or character, the rooms are squeaky clean and come with firm beds over white tile floors, mini-fridges, desks, LCD TVs with minimal English channels and good-size bathrooms with modern appliances, including powerful hot-water showers placed behind curtains. All rooms come with large windows but those on the lower floors in the back face the neighbouring building’s drab cement walls. There’s no lift so take a room on the first floor if you’re not into steps. All room rates get you a complimentary buffet breakfast of fried rice, fried noodles and other options preferred by Thais. The staff we met didn’t speak much English but were welcoming enough, and WiFi is free. The best part about Jaroensin is the location, next to a good coffee shop and within walking distance of just about anything in the city.
