First off the rank as you reach the beach road and turn south, Talay Hotel is worth keeping in mind for a centrally located room if Cha Inn is full or you require a swimming pool—even if it’s a tiny one.

The main “hotel” part of the property is a bland four-storey block of concrete—formerly JJ Hotel—that Talay made somewhat more enticing with pastel paintjobs and some sea-cottage-style decoration. Accessed by stairs, these are small but clean and equipped with LCD TVs, small safes, desks, fridges, firm beds and bathrooms with hot-water showers in glass stalls. Some have private balconies and partial sea-view windows, and the value isn’t too shabby considering the central location.

Simple but quite spacious rooms.

The better rooms are set further back beyond the car park in a long two-floor building facing a walkway. These are little larger than rooms in the main building, with more modern designs and front terraces. Sleek deluxe family editions have beds on either floor connected by spiral staircases.

A few loungers beside a tiny swimming pool face a white wall off a corner of the car park, adding to the overall quirky setup. There’s also a coffee shop attached to reception, where a few young staffers did a fine job with us.

For a little more cash you could go for nearby Banlansuan Resort, which has slightly better rooms but no sea views or pool. There’s also Paso Resort offering decent sea-view rooms for 1,300 baht quite a ways further south down the beach road.
