Good low-budget value
Situated a 10-minute walk north of Thung Si Muang Park, the long-running Tokyo occupies a sizeable five-storey building set back from two of Ubon’s busiest roads.
We received a warm welcome from a receptionist who spoke a little English, though you’ll be better served by some of the other options if you’re in need of extensive advice on how to explore the area. If you need nothing more than a place to sleep, the Tokyo delivers unexpectedly big, bright and clean rooms with choice of fan or air-con. The ones we checked out were so white that it felt like stepping onto a canvas: firm bed with cheapish white sheets on utilitarian white floors, white-topped desk and wall-mounted fan on stark white walls, all glowing bright white from sunlight pouring through a large window covered by white curtains. The only hints of colour were the off-white mini-fridge and grey TV. Hot-water bathrooms are small but solid for the price. The Tokyo has a lift and car park, which is more than you can say for some of the pricier hotels.
Around the corner on Chayangkun Road, the Bua Hotel (formerly Montana Hotel) is a solid alternative to the Tokyo. If you’re after something closer to the river for around the same prices, you could do worse than the Srikamol Hotel on Ubonsak Road.
