Central and good value
The well-kept rooms at B.M. Grand place you a block away from the night market and within easy walking distance of the Ban Singha old town, making this small hotel a good choice if you don’t have a vehicle.
The place doesn’t look like much from the front with its rusted balcony gates dotting a featureless concrete exterior standing above the car park. It’s an old hotel but, at some point in relatively recent history, additions included an open-sided dining area to go with a glass-fronted cafe and an air-conditioned lounge with sofas to relax on.
Accessed by a flight or two of stairs, the rooms were also spruced up and those we checked out appeared clean. Within you get a firm bed (or two) raised above glossy tile floors along with wide glass windows and doors opening to small, unfurnished balconies. WiFi is free and the air-con unit, flatscreen TV, fridge and electric hot-water heater are all modern.
The rooms also bag you a desk and, while not huge, the tiled wet bathrooms that we saw looked well cleaned. Decoration is limited to some leaf patterns on the curtains, but that’s actually more style than you’ll find in most of Yasothon’s hotels. Though not overly enthusiastic, the young woman at reception was quick to show us the rooms.
B.M. Grand is smaller than most other options in town and it seems to have a solid reputation among Thais, explaining why it’s usually one of the first to get booked up for the rocket festival. We did not see it on booking sites so you’ll need to call or send a message to make a reservation.
If you can’t find the hotel on your maps app, try typing in “Bed. M. Grand”. Otherwise, if heading west on Chaeng Sanit Road, turn right (north) up Wareerachadet Road then take the second right on Rattanakhet, and you’ll see the B.M. just past the first cross street on the left.
