Gets the job done
The little City Inn is located around the corner from the old bus station, making it a very convenient option if arriving here -- or if you get stuck overnighting in Udon.
The featureless white building has narrow stairs leading up to around 10 plain but squeaky clean and reasonably comfortable rooms. Expect white-tile floors and white walls with no decor, fresh white sheets on the decent spring beds and clean hot-water bathrooms with showers partitioned behind curtains. There’s only one small window in most rooms and the view looks at ugly concrete buildings across the alley. No, this isn’t a “design” hotel, but it delivers as a place to lay your head with a good location and extras like fridge and LCD TV with English channels. Owner Tiffany speaks excellent English and provides solid info on where to eat and how to reach outlying attractions in Udon province. She also provides free lockers on the second floor; they do come with keys but you may want a padlock for added security. The location is far from charming, but it is a step removed from the seediness, and an easy five-minute walk gets you to the night markets.
