Odd location but all else good
German/Thai-owned Bobby’s Apartment and Jungle Tours, like Greenleaf and Khao Yai Garden Lodge, is a reliable option for tours, rooms and meals from a single source.
Available mainly for travellers who are booking a tour with Bobby’s, 10 small concrete bungalows -- we’re not sure why they’re called “apartments” -- are spread around a gravel driveway with an on-site restaurant, WiFi and tables. Two family rooms sleep up to five people and an eight-bed fan-cooled mixed dorm offers the cheapest beds in the Khao Yai area. Apart from the dorms, all rooms come with air-con, fridges, TVs, ensuite hot-water bathrooms and porches with benches. They were full when we passed through; in fact we were told that the place was fully booked for the next two months so do plan ahead if you want to stay here.
The guesthouse is located down a narrow lane that extends from behind the Tesco Lotus near the junction where Thanarat and Mittraphap roads meet. Apart from the nearby shopping centre there’s nothing of interest in the immediate vicinity and downtown Pak Chong is around six kilometres to the northeast. The point of staying here is to let someone else take care of all your needs, and Bobby’s has a good reputation for the tours as well as pick up and drop off at the train/bus station and Thai/Western food at the restaurant.
