Flashpackers look no further
Peeling business away from Khorat’s many ageing hotels, Rom Yen Garden Place offers an excellent downtown location along with plush rooms in the 1,000 baht range.
Set around a broad tree-lined deck accented by Japanese fish banners, the large four-storey building has many rooms on the ground floor and others accessed by a lift. The superior that we checked out was spacious and spotless, with glossy white furnishings, a comfortable queen-size bed, large LCD TV, teakettle and dishes provided in cabinets next to a fridge and table. The large bathroom came with a rain-shower head in addition to moveable showerhead. We were told that deluxe rooms come with more space, balconies and in-room safes.
Rom Yen is a large property with polite uniformed receptionists, an on-site Japanese restaurant, coffee shop, fitness centre and car park -- the only thing missing is a pool. Breakfast and bicycles are included in the rates. The property is set around 50 metres back from Jomsurangyad, ensuring quiet nights despite a downtown location within a five-minute walk of Ya Mo and Klang Plaza 2.
Further west and closer to the Khorat train station, the Leosor Hotel is a similarly modern choice for a bit more cash. In this price range you might also consider the long-running Siri Hotel, or the more upscale Sima Thani Hotel if you have a vehicle. Chayada Resort is another solid flashpacker option if you don’t mind being out on the north side of Mittraphap.
