Tucked away towards the river end of Chaisongkran you’ll find mini-hotel style Namu offering some good value for money low season rooms and reasonable (for Pai) high season ones.

As we saw several times in Pai, it’s a case of squeezing a hotel into a space that isn’t really large enough. They’ve made a good job of Namu though, and have slotted 10 not too small rooms into a two-storey building. The hotel is recently purpose-built and attractively finished with varnished wood cladding over concrete walls.

Simple clean rooms.

Though all rooms are simply offered at the same very reasonable rate, there is a considerable difference between upstairs and downstairs ones. The former come with splendid, spacious balconies providing ideal spots for looking onto Chaisongkran’s action below, and are bright with large windows. Downstairs ones are dim with tiny windows and no view at all.

Having said that, rooms are all impeccably turned out and spotless, with polished concrete walls, spanking new furniture and very efficient air-con and hot showers. Decor is spartan but the overall uncluttered appearance is attractive. As isn’t always the case, care had been paid to the electricity too, so there are plenty of sockets for charging up your essential travel gear. The easily accessible bedside lamp switches are handy, too—it's the minor details that sometimes count! Some rooms look directly over Walking Street, while going for a rear downstairs one will cut out a lot of the noise.

It’s a shame that not as much attention has gone into the communal areas as to roomsThe half-hearted reception and cafe out front have a half-finished feel that belies the smart accommodation. Tea, coffee and toast are available in a gloomy basic seating area; with quite a bit of space available they could make the front of house look a lot better. It is very new, so perhaps things will improve. Overall, expect good rooms and good rates if you want to be right in the action.
