More on Chaiyaphum

Pocket Park Minitel is a breath of fresh air blown into Chaiyaphum’s otherwise crusty accommodation scene. Built of polished concrete and dark-wood planks with a water feature and car park out front, the contemporary building has spacious and spotless rooms set on two floors -- ask for a ground-floor room if steps are an issue.

Travelfish says:

Glossy white tiles and light-grey walls lead to sliding-glass doors and balconies overlooking some greenery, while a long wood bench rims one half of each room and even comes with a dining stand. You also get an LCD TV, free WiFi, desk, fridge with minibar and good-size hot-water bathroom. Beds and linens are notably comfy, even if the squares of fake grass placed above them are ill advised.

The young woman who checked us in spoke a little English, but the similarly priced Dee Prom Hotel is probably a better bet if you need advice on exploring the area. Pocket Park is set down a side lane just south of the traffic circle and bus stop, a 15-minute walk east of the night bazaar. While there’s no on-site restaurant, Cupple Coffee serves decent breakfasts around the corner.

If Pocket Park is too pricey, you could head west down Bannakarn and grab a 500-baht room at the rundown Tonkhoon Hotel.
