Set towards the end of a quiet side road in Bang Niang, about a five minute walk from the beach, the Sandy House is probably the best true budget option in this area.
It's a family run spot with rooms in a four storey building situated over a gift shop, and the enthusiastic ladies who work there are very welcoming. For these prices, and in this area, rooms are a pleasant surprise too. Whether fan or air-con you can expect simply furnished but comfortable, bright and clean rooms with firm beds, fridges, and TVs. All the rooms we saw were a little different, so you might take a look around before deciding. One had a large balcony over looking a not so scenic field while another, which was the same price as the others, actually had two rooms with beds and could comfortably accommodate a family of up to five on a budget. WiFi is free, and the guesthouse rents out motorbikes and cars. To get here, take a left off the main road through Bang Niang on to Soi Pak Khlong Bang Niang (towards the Sheraton) and Sandy House will be a short ways down on the right.
