Adequate budget option
619 Taksin Rd, Tak T: (055) 511 153, (055) 511 265
The Sanguanthai Hotel is a basic budget option with well-kept rooms in the heart of Tak town.
Accessed by stairs, most of the utilitarian rooms occupy an attached building set just back from the street overlooking a car park. Available with fan or air-con, they all come with cheap linens on hard beds, clean hot-water wet bathrooms, small TVs, large windows and old metal desks that brought back memories of stuffy high school classrooms. The spacious air-con room that we inspected appeared to be very well kept and WiFi is free, making this a good-value choice for backpackers. The boisterous woman and soft-spoken man who run the place speak basically no English but were welcoming when we inquired.
