Maeyom Palace Hotel

Our rating:
3.5 stars, based on 1 expert review

This large hotel, opposite the bus station, seems to have cornered the foreign tour group market for Phrae and as such is definitely the hotel most set up for Western visitors.

In high season coach loads of Dutch, French or Belgian tourists may suddenly rock up flooding reception or the cafe, meaning the needs of a solo traveller may take a temporary back seat. In low season however things are pretty quiet and while they don't publish an official low season rate, bargains are surely to be found. ‘Palace’ is pushing things a bit but rooms are what you’d expect for the price: clean and well-kept, with comfy beds, fully equipped bathrooms, TV, WiFi and air-con, plus a spacious pool and deck area are found out the back.

The large in-house restaurant is very pleasant with an outdoor seating area and English menu including all the Thai faves as well as a few Western options -- though again you might want to time your visit to avoid being invaded by a tour group of 27 European customers during their traditional dinner/dance show. Location is obviously good for transport but it is a bit of a hike to the old town, so you may need to avail yourself of one of the rickshaw drivers who hang around in the carpark for the tour groups. Otherwise, a strip of bars lies over the road at the entrance to the bus station and Maeyom restaurant is a good deal for a Thai dinner -- so all in all this is a convenient choice if you’re looking in the flashpacker category.
