Not quite a palace
10-12 Soi Thetviwat 2, Pipat Rd T: (073) 349 171
Centrally located near the main market (which conveniently doubles as the night market), the sprawling Palace Hotel is the only budget option in Pattani that accepts western guests.
The rooms are adequate, with a closet and lacklustre, bordering on non-functioning toilets, but it is fairly quiet and is very well located to the market and the Pattani riverfront. The building is quite a rambling affair with the wide variety of rooms stuck in different wings. Management is particularly friendly and helpful. There is an attached restaurant on the ground floor.
