Open since 2010 but already something of a veteran among the resorts and guesthouses found in this quiet neighbourhood, Thai Thai Guesthouse’s exceptionally friendly staff offers cushy rooms in a mini village setup.

Set in a two-storey building towards the back of the grounds, the cheapest rooms come with soft beds draped in high-quality linens, fridges, TVs, desks, air-con, spacious hot-water bathrooms with tasteful ceramic sinks and scenes of bird cages stencilled on the light-orange walls.
While these rooms are inviting, the 1,200 baht Thai-style wood bungalows come with all of the same amenities and are worth the extra baht for the elegant Thai art on lightwood walls and floors, large porches, many windows and beds with curtains on four-poster frames. Draped in flowers and palms, bungalows front a long concrete driveway that makes it possible to park your vehicle directly in front of your room. Bicycle rental is available for those who don’t have their own wheels.
Spread over a large property that’s basically a cul de sac branching off a larger cul de sac, Thai Thai feels more like a small resort than a guesthouse. WiFi and an extensive buffet breakfast are complimentary, and the helpful silk-clad staff does a wonderful job of making guests feel at home. Though it lacks a pool, Thai Thai’s bungalows beat the similarly priced standard rooms at nearby Scent of Sukhothai
. It also has some excellent family-size rooms.
