Great little flashpacker spot
The Nan Lanna Hotel falls somewhere between a hotel and guesthouse and is the best flashpacker option we found in town.
Nan Lanna has a perfect location just a stone’s throw from most sights of the old town yet it’s tucked away down a quiet soi off Sumondhewaraj. Entrance is by way of a small car-park/garden area behind which is a two-storey, white building with around eight rooms upstairs and eight down. The building is new as of early 2016 but tastefully designed in a traditional style with tiled roof and teak stairways and bannisters; plants are well tended and twooden tables and chairs out front of the downstairs rooms are inviting, plus a communal balcony with more seating runs the length of the second floor.
All rooms are very large, clean and comfortable, though upper floor rooms get more light. Interiors are slightly spartan, with plain white walls, though their size probably makes them appear barer and we can imagine other new hotels squeezing three rooms into where Nan Lanna have built two. Bathrooms are equally spotless and spacious and all rooms come with air-con and WiFi plus free tea and coffee for guests. Rooms come in double or twins plus two larger family rooms are on offer. Staff are friendly and helpful, and information and bicycles are available. This is a good address but it’s popular so be sure to book in advance.
