Accessed by a small lift, rooms are set in a featureless white concrete building beside a century-old wooden house that’s also part of the property. Utilitarian interiors come with tile floors, firm beds with cheap blankets, TVs, desks and small wet bathrooms with hot-water showers behind curtains. There’s no decoration and rooms are on the small side unless you pay extra for a superior that can accommodate kids, we were told. We noticed some smudges but no visible dust, and linens smelled fresh. Go for an upper floor room and you may get a view of the lake or sea.

Offering free WiFi and bicycle rental, the receptionist spoke some English and was quick to show us the rooms. While the location is convenient to the National Museum, fresh market and drop-off point for minibuses from Hat Yai, it’s a kilometre walk south to the best part of the old town and two kilometres north to Haad Samila.

If you’re after a cheaper room, neighbouring Queen Hotel has more faded rooms starting at 350 baht. Otherwise, head to nearby Holland House.
