It boasts clean, generously sized rooms and bathrooms with hot showers—for once not directly above the toilets. Balconies lead out to a small but pleasant garden, all set far enough off the road to provide some peace and quiet. Palm lies between Rungsiyanon Road and a smaller parallel road behind, so conveniently has two entrances.

The main entrance with car park, reception and a small seating area with drinks and information lies on the lane off Chaisongkran, while on the other side a footpath emerges onto the central stretch of Rungsiyanon, or Walking Street. You have a choice of five rooms in a single storey block or four rooms in a larger house.

Decoration isn’t much but all the rooms are clean, white painted and bright, with private bathrooms and hot shower. The one-storey rooms and ground floor house ones come with cute little balconies plus cane chairs and table.

There is a substantial hike from low to high season rates but then low ones are exceptional value and, in the Pai context, the high season rates are acceptable. No breakfast is included but the free water, tea and coffee for guests is a nice touch and we’ve always found staff to be friendly and helpful. This is a very good all-round deal with an excellent location.
