Li Lu falls into the "great deal in low season but forget it during high season" category.

This mini-hotel just near the junction of Rungsiyanon and Raddamrong roads is tastefully decorated in a kind of minimalist, polished concrete style, which looks better than it sounds. The cafe and bar area is a pleasant spot to sit, the food reasonably priced and staff helpful. Well appointed and spotlessly clean, rooms come with cable TV, power shower, air-con, coffee and tea, WiFi and a DVD player. When you consider it includes breakfast as well, it's a great deal for 700 baht. This is a very popular spot but in high season rates are a lot higher -- four times higher, which is one of the biggest low-high season disparities we’ve come across anywhere in Thailand. While offering low season discounts and increasing rates for high season is standard practice and excusable in tourist resorts we reckon quadrupling the price takes the proverbial somewhat! Check your dates carefully on their website; Li Lu goes from being a great deal to a great rip-off.
