Clean with good service
The small but slick Get Guesthouse opened in 2014 to offer six clean rooms on a quiet downtown lane.
Rooms hit with a flash of white and come with air-con, quality linens on firm beds, small LCD TVs on the walls, fridges, desks, coffee/tea facilities and WiFi. The best of them also have balconies with a few potted plants and sliding glass doors, but the small single edition does not have a window. Wet bathrooms are small, modern and clean, with sinks situated on polished concrete shelves out in the bedrooms.
Though not large enough for families, these rooms bag you extra comforts that will cost at least 300 baht more at any number of larger hotels in Hat Yai.
The converted shophouse received quite the revamp, with a little fishpond in the lobby and funky red-glass panels stretching along exterior walls of the upper two floors. Owner P’Ya speaks English and was very welcoming to us, and she plans to open a few larger rooms at a second property located behind the original. Get is her son’s name, if you’re wondering.
The location off Supasarnrangsan and near Wat Chue Chang is convenient but quiet thanks to the low-key side street. For more cash you could grab a trendier and similarly cushy room at nearby The Bed, which has some family options.
