Papangkorn House is more of a serviced apartment style hotel that’s especially well suited to light sleepers, thanks to the quiet location down a residential side street.

Though a bit further from the riverfront than My Place or CBD Hotel, the Papangkorn is only a 10-minute walk from the downtown bus stations and night market. A personable owner and spotless rooms sweeten the deal.

Set on five floors of a featureless but newish (as of late 2015) concrete building, rooms are squeaky clean and comfy. All designed for two people, they come with decent-quality firm beds on white tile floors, LCD TVs, modern hot-water wet bathrooms, mini-fridges, desks and fairly new air-con units. Decor is limited to a bouquet of fake flowers in the corner, but you do get a small balcony accessed through glass doors. The particularly helpful English-speaking owner can arrange ferry tickets and motorbike rental, and he offers maps and instructions on how to get the most out of a visit to Surat. WiFi is free. Papangkorn is also a solid option for an extended stay, with rates dropping by 50 to 100 baht if paying by the week.

The location is somewhat difficult to find but not too far to walk from the riverfront and markets. From the downtown minibus station (Talad Kaset 2) and airport bus drop off spot, walk east up Talad Mai Road for about half a kilometre, then go right into Talad Mai Soi 39. Continue for a couple of hundred metres and you’ll see an English sign for Papangkorn on the left.
