Centrally located where Khong Kha meets Uttarakit and within sight of the river, The I Talay is one of four similarly priced guesthouses set in a row of tall and narrow concrete shophouses in the centre of town.

The Thai word talay means ocean, and all rooms sport a breezy light-blue and white theme with framed tropical sea scenes. The cheapest fan rooms are small but immaculate, with decent beds, windows and tables, while the low-end air-con editions are larger. Both of these rely on shared bathrooms with hot water. We were also shown an inviting top-floor air-con room with a lot more space, fridge and narrow private bathroom that was been built onto a converted balcony. The only window is in the bathroom, which itself has a screen door, but a large photo of a window opening onto an idyllic beach helps to make up for that. On the ground floor you’ll find a few tables but not much of a social scene -- I Talay is best suited to budget travellers just looking for a central place to sleep. The staff member we met spoke limited English but tried her best to answer our questions and was quick to show us the rooms. Neighbouring Number 7 Guesthouse is a very similar choice, though we preferred I Talay’s laid-back sea theme.
