Chaiyaphum’s flagship hotel
Looming over Bannakarn Road as one of Chaiyaphum’s largest buildings, the Dee Prom Hotel offers more than 100 basic but well-equipped rooms along with a restaurant, 24-hour security, English-speaking reception, car park and Thai massage. Accessed by a lift from a cavernous lobby with sparkling chandeliers and Chinese furniture, the cheapest rooms come with thin blankets on firm mattresses set over plain white floors, with no decoration on the white walls.
Though uninspiring, these rooms get the job done with TVs, free WiFi, tiny desks, minibars, small balconies and typical wet bathrooms with hot-water showers. Deluxe editions don’t offer many extras for the money, but one-bedroom suites with parquet wood floors are good options for families. All rates include breakfast.
Dee Prom has a good location off the south side of Bannakarn, within easy walking distance of the night bazaar. Located closer to the bus station on the north side of town, the Lertnimit Hotel is a similar choice.
