Li Lu

Our rating:

As with numerous other establishments in the area, Li Lu falls into the “great deal in low season but forget it during high season” category.

This in-town mini-hotel near the junction of Rungsiyanon and Raddamrong Roads possesses a classic wooden exterior housing reception and cafe behind which a newer two-storey modern construction contains the rooms. Decoration is clean, sharp and tasteful throughout and indeed Li Lu was one of the first in Pai to feature the now ubiquitous, but at the time state of the art, polished/buffed concrete. Rooms are never going to be completely noise free but the reception building does cut a lot out. Second floor ones are obviously brighter than ground floor rooms.

Comfortable rooms.

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. Polished concrete and chrome extend to the bathrooms. When you consider it includes breakfast as well, it’s a great deal for 5-700 baht.

This is a very popular spot but in high and peak seasons rates are a lot higher. Indeed in peak period around Xmas and New Year expect a five-fold increase, which wins the award for one of the biggest low-high season disparities we’ve come across anywhere in Thailand. Check your dates carefully on their website; Li Lu goes from being a great deal to a great rip-off, though they’re not the only ones and to be fair they haven’t increased their rates since we last visited two years ago.
