Navarat Heritage Hotel
Cushy flashpacker digs
2 Tesa 1 Soi 21, Kamphaeng Phet T: (055) 711 211 F: (055) 711 961
In 2012 the Navarat added Heritage to its name while undergoing a dramatic renovation that rendered it the most stylish hotel in Kamphaeng Phet.
The hotel boasts sparkling tile floors, tasteful hardwood walls in what has become quite a classy lobby with some shared computers, a lovely outdoor dining area, a full bar/restaurant, a fitness room and bicycles for rent. While the rooms are plainly decorated and not exactly cosy, they were outfitted with fresh carpet or tile floors to go with new furniture and appliances. Each are very spacious and equipped with air-con, TV, minibar, desk, safe, WiFi and modern bathroom. Some rooms on the higher floors have partial river views. There's not much to differentiate standards from superiors, but the triple is a good choice for families.
Navarat has a good location -- a stone's throw from the river and night market -- but like most of the city's hotels it's a few kilometres from the historical park. Staff is friendly but limited English is spoken. For a better view and inferior rooms that fetch roughly the same rates, the nearby Chakungrao Riverside Hotel is another large hotel in this same vicinity.
