Raming Lodge

Our rating:
4 stars, based on 1 expert review

Squeezed between Loi Kroh Road and Kotchasarn Soi 3, just off the eastern moat road, the deceptively large, (and we felt oddly named), Raming Lodge is a good address for night owls.

We say deceptively as you wouldn’t guess from the frontage they’d managed to fit 84 decent sized rooms into that one narrow block. Raming is five minutes on foot from the Night Bazaar and two from Tha Pae so we expect no complaints about location! Though, bear in mind that the lower floor front rooms will catch some racket from Loi Kroh, which can get pretty raucous in an evening. Closing time in 2017 are 00:30 so it won’t go on that long and rather sensible Raming have adopted a can’t beat them policy and set up their own pavement, stool-lined, bar—Rock Me—out front anyway.

Behind the bar is the in-house restaurant offering lunches, dinners and the complimentary breakfast and there’s an outside, plant-scattered, seating area in an open corridor between two room blocks. The latter—three six-storey ones with brick facings for a change—are laid out in a tight horseshoe shape. The ground floor of the rear block actually houses reception which gives onto Soi 3 rather than Loi Kroh. The left hand block, looking from Loi Kroh, houses their massage parlour/spa on the ground floor.

It’s all a bit congested but Raming have made an effort and purchased a plot of land across the soi on which they’ve built a swimming pool and car-park area. Yes you do have to cross a road to get to the pool but at least they have one, even if it is lacking in the shade department.

As far as the rooms go we’ve no complaints at all—particularly bearing in mind prices which translate to very good value for money. Thankfully they don’t assassinate you with high season supplements either which are kept to a sensible level. Decor is spot on—understated but tasteful and a mixture of traditional and modern—with cream walls and crimson bed linen and cushions and solid, varnished wood furniture. There’s good lighting, including bed-side lamps, plus fridge, fast WiFi, safety deposit box and large, flat-screen cable TV. What’s more, despite squeezing in so many rooms, they are still reasonably sized.

Deluxe rooms are on higher floors, slightly larger and include minibar as well as free airport transfers and they also offer various suite options. All in all this is a well thought out property and a great deal—though if you’re after a quiet, romantic stay or a laze around in a lush tropical garden this might not be the right choice for you.
