The RP City Hotel is a little cheaper than B.M. Grand and it sits towards the east side of town, making for a shorter walk to the giant toad and the rocket festival grounds at Phaya Thaen Park.

The four-floor concrete building is an eyesore and the portico doesn’t help much, but we didn’t mind the open-sided reception area with some fitness machines overlooking the car park. The restaurant, Sabai Sabai, has an extensive menu of Thai dishes and the food we tried wasn’t bad. A couple of bicycles are free for guests—an extra that you won’t find at other hotels in Yaso.

Stairs lead to the rooms found on either side of hallways sporting 1970s-style stripes in yellow, brown and green. Standard interiors are dated with boxy TVs joining peeling wallpaper and no decorations, but the linens in the room we stayed in were clean and we slept well on the soft bed. The WiFi and fridge worked fine and we appreciated the desk and unfurnished balcony.

The hot-water wet bathrooms are notably small but surprisingly equipped with rain showerheads in addition to the usual handheld spout. An extra 100 baht bags you a corner superior room with more space and a newish flatscreen TV, although you won’t find any channels in English.

Though not unfriendly, the woman at reception didn’t tell us how to find our room at first and we had to go back down to ask her for the air-con remote and WiFi password (the WiFi worked fine once we connected). But for the price it’s tough to complain about a room that was so well equipped and mostly clean apart from a couple of water stains on the ceiling.

The location is solid, about a kilometre east of Ban Singha and the same distance west of Phaya Thaen Park. If staying during the festival you can watch the parade pass on nearby Chaeng Sanit Road and then follow the rockets to their launch pads in the park.
