Nothing but charm
Located a 10-minute walk west of the night market and Bangkok bus stops, The Goodville Cottage serves up immaculate rooms backed by the Lam Takong River. Flashpackers who want to stay near the restaurants and services in Pak Chong should look no further.
Opened in 2015 by a spirited man who speaks a little English, The Goodville has two different room types in a pair of buildings facing a small lawn and flower garden.
The cheaper rooms are good for the price, with cool white walls and floors, firm beds with decent linens, TVs, desks and typical modern hot-water wet bathrooms. If you can swing an extra 200 baht, we highly recommend the superior rooms with more space, fridges and wide back decks with chairs overlooking the tree-lined river. Chill out here and you’ll forget all about the big trucks and buses clamouring down nearby Mittraphap Road.
The owner offers tour bookings through Bobby’s Jungle Tours along with free WiFi, a small car park and a few breakfast choices for 100 baht.
The location towards the west side of town is more out of the way than At Home Hostel, but it’s not too difficult to walk or take a motorbike taxi from the train station or bus stops. It’s set down a narrow lane that runs south from the impossible-to-miss Rimtarninn Hotel, which offers rundown but reasonably comfortable rooms for a bit more cash.
