Fronted by a small restaurant on the riverfront road, the Sakaa Song is a charming family-run spot with half a dozen dark-wood Thai-style bungalows placed around a small car park across from the river.

We found the rooms clean and better equipped than expected, with wall-mounted LCD TVs, air-con and hot water in sharp bathrooms. Double mattresses are set up on the floor in the cramped bedroom space, though the private porches with at least partial river views will give you somewhere to lounge. Each freestanding bungalow is made almost entirely of wood -- floors, walls and ceilings -- that we appreciated after the chunky concrete found at the nearby Riverview Hotel. The young woman who showed us a room seemed surprised to see a foreigner inquiring; don’t expect anything beyond the most basic English to be spoken here. The sign over the restaurant says the name only in Thai but it does also say “homestay” in English. Especially if you can speak some Thai, the location and rooms are tough to beat if you’re after something different.
