Comfy rooms, central location
Located near the immigration office and a quick walk from the municipal market and Thung Si Muang, the Prajaktra City is a newish spot that doesn’t quite pull off the boutique-y theme that it tries to project.
Even so, this is a very solid, clean and secure option that puts you smack in the heart of the city, even if the word “hostel” should be replaced by “inn” or “hotel” (there are no dorms or budget rooms here). The receptionist met us with a smile before leading us through a key-card entrance, into a shiny lift and up to a room that was also accessed by a key-card. Though not so memorable from a design standpoint, it struck us as very comfortable thanks to the soft bed with good-quality linens, grey-brown wood-panel floors, good-size hot-water bathroom, desk, LCD TV, fridge, free WiFi and small balcony accessed by glass doors. For the price, including breakfast, it should make flashpackers happy. A cosy hangout space is found on the ground floor and there’s a larger coffee shop along with several restaurants nearby. The larger sister property, Prajaktra Design Hotel, is also worth considering if you don’t mind being way out near the western entrance to Nong Prajak Park. You could also try the Much-che Manta Hotel on nearby Makkaeng Road, which has similar but slightly dinged up rooms and a plunge pool for a bit more cash.
