The Fat Cat Guesthouse & Piano Bar

The Fat Cat Guesthouse & Piano Bar

A favourite of jazz lovers

More on Hua Hin

Located within sight of the fishing pier at the northern end of Nares Damri, this chilled-out spot has one of the best atmospheres in the area thanks to the genuinely friendly Thai staff and Danish owner who plays soulful saxophone in the ground-floor lounge on most nights.

Travelfish says:

It was recently refurbished when we last visited, with the best rooms located upstairs in the main building, each with plenty of space, several windows, comfortable beds, TVs, mini-fridges, desks, elaborate Thai tapestries and modern hot-water bathrooms. An extra 300 baht bags you a bit more space and a balcony with sea view, though the standards were fine by us. Fat Cat also offers dirt-cheap fan rooms in a separate building nearby. The one that we checked out felt a bit like a jail cell with its scuffed cement walls and minimal natural light, but it is equipped with private hot-water bathroom, TV and mini-fridge, and the lone window affords a glimpse of the sea. Upstairs in this same building, the cheapest rooms are tiny and rely on a shared hot-water bathroom, but even these come with TV and fridge. If you don’t stay here, be sure to stop by for a steak and glass of wine between 19:00 and 21:00, when the live jazz keeps things smooth and romantic.
