Raming Lodge Hotel has one entrance on busy Loi Kroh and another on the quiet soi behind, so it can appear to be either a tranquil or hectic spot depending upon which direction you approach it from.

It's a large, pleasantly decorated hotel popular with both independent travellers and tour groups. They have added a swimming pool though it's across the road next to the car park, which is slightly odd, and room rates aren't particularly cheap — they whack on a big supplement during the high season so give it a miss then. If you want midrange in the thick of the action at other times then this is a good choice — otherwise there are plenty of alternatives in the same price range. All rates include breakfast. Note Loi Kroh is a very lively bar area that some may find off-putting.
