Situated down a bustling alley lined by stalls selling cheap food and clothes, the Thai Hotel doesn’t make the greatest first impression with its characterless concrete facade and dark-tinted front doors.

You’ll feel a little better after stepping into the dated lobby staffed by English-speaking receptionists, and we reckon that you’ll be sold after taking the lift up to one of the spacious, clean and bright rooms.

The large six-storey property is broken down into four types of rooms ranging from 350 to 550 baht -- excellent value for what you get. All of the well-kept rooms come with tile floors, old furnishings, firm beds and wide glass windows. While upper-floor rooms afford a view of Wat Phra Mahathat and other temples, those on the lower floors look straight at the concrete walls of adjacent buildings. Thick walls and a location slightly removed from Rajdamnern Road mean that you should be able to get a good night’s sleep. All rooms come with choice of two twin beds or one double bed to go with free WiFi, small TVs and desks, with ceiling fans in the cheapest rooms. The top-end rooms get you fridges, hot water and bath tubs.

The hotel has a small ground-floor cafe where you can grab a beer or soda, though we’d skip the breakfast and head around the corner to the khao gaeng shops and fruit vendors on Klongtha Road. You’ll also find an on-site tailor shop along with a bunch of cheap clothes vendors directly across the alley. The location is about as central as you can get in Nakhon town, and there is a car park.

You could save 50 baht by opting for an inferior room at the rundown Bua Luang Hotel or Siam Hotel, both found in the same part of town. There’s also the Muang Thong, a long-running Chinese-style budget hotel that was undergoing extensive renovations at research time in December 2015.
