The largest of Phetchaburi’s downtown guesthouses, JJ Home is divided between an old wooden house with spartan fan rooms and a concrete building across the road with good-value air-con rooms overlooking the river.

Situated upstairs in the main building on the inland side of the street, the cheapest single rooms are cramped with a window, spring mattress, tile floors, portable fan—and nothing else. Also relying on basic shared hot-water bathrooms, larger double fan rooms bag you more space along with tacky vinyl loveseats.

Difficult to miss.

But the rooms we’d choose come in the smaller building and feature air-con along with small hot-water bathrooms, TVs, fridges, more of the zebra-pattern vinyl furniture and (the best part) glass doors opening to shared balconies with river views. The rooms that we checked out appeared clean but with more of a lived-in look than the modern digs over at White Monkey.

JJ Home is steps away from one of the elephant-head bridges running across the river to the market area—so expect some street noise in the mornings. The staffer we encountered was not particularly friendly but had no problem with showing us some rooms. Free WiFi is available along with bicycles and motorbike rental, and the ground-floor common room is a fine place to have a beer while watching the city buzz past.

Functional and clean rooms.

If you’re looking to go even cheaper, the nearby Rabieng Rimnam is a great restaurant with a few rundown single rooms for 150 baht and doubles for 240 baht using shared cold-water bathrooms in a 120-year-old teakwood house (rumours suggest it will eventually be spruced up into a boutique hotel).
