Chalelarn Hotel

Chalelarn Hotel

Thai-themed midranger

More on Hua Hin

Rising from a corner of the main tourist area in a barrage of tinted glass and light violet paint, the Chalelarn has raised the bar among Hua Hin’s midrange hotels.

Travelfish says:

All seven storeys are done in a sometimes over-the-top traditional Thai theme that relies heavily on polished dark wood, woven bamboo, colourful silk, old-style Thai carvings, glittering elephants and plenty of deep-crimson fabrics. Some of the rooms are awkwardly designed, with minimal space between foots of beds and the walls, and ill-conceived glass windows between bathrooms and sleeping space (there are curtains). The lack of balconies is also a disappointment. But the rooms are comfortable and romantic, and bathrooms particularly shine thanks to ceramic sinks, high-end appliances and turquoise ceramic tiles to contrast dark-grey walls. All rooms also come with safes, minibars and LCD TVs. A decent-size swimming pool and Jacuzzi top the place off and afford great views of the city and ocean. There’s also a restaurant, bar and shared computers in the lobby. The uniformed staff member who greeted us was polite but struggled with English. The owners also run Baan Chalelarn, a smaller and more straightforward hotel around the corner on Chomsin Road. We saw some fair deals for both places online.
