Conveniently located to the east end of Tha Sadej market just off the riverside promenade, this quaint guesthouse offers more than initially meets the eye.
In a century-old house made of dark teak wood, simple but well-kept rooms have high ceilings, soft beds, mosquito nets and several windows. The good value fan rooms rely on shared hot water bathroom facilities as well as a shared fridge, while an air-con edition in the main building boasts fridge, TV and private bathroom. Fronting a tiny car park shaded by low-hanging trees, a newer wood building offers less charming but perfectly comfortable double rooms with air-con and private bathrooms. The staff makes up for their lack of English skills by going the extra mile to ensure their guests have a comfortable stay. E-San is just down the soi from Sawasdee Guesthouse and a short walk from the bus station. Note that it’s on Soi Si Kun Mueang, not Soi Si Mueang, which is a different road located a short walk to the west.
