Occupying an old-school white wooden building towards the northern end of Klang Mueang, the Saen Samran is quite possibly the longest running hotel in Khon Kaen.

It’s a backpacker favourite thanks to dirt-cheap rooms with high ceilings, a few windows, moveable fans, thin mattresses on beds raised off the heavily scuffed wood floors and basic cold-bathrooms with Western-style toilets. An extra 60 baht gets you a TV, though we were met with a frown when we asked if it had English channels. The rooms are very spacious and appeared acceptable for the price, at least if you can block out the considerable mould on some of the walls. The pokey hallways include wooden deer and lions, with a “dogs of the world” poster hung from an old Thai-style fretted wood wall. The hotel does have free WiFi and the older women who run it can speak a little English between them. Though certainly not a luxurious choice, this will do if you’re on a shoestring budget and simply need a place to crash. The hotel has virtually no online presence and accepts walk-ins only.
