Yamawa Guesthouse is often overlooked due to its location a kilometre away from train station—and that’s a shame, as you won’t find a more helpful owner or better-value rooms in Trang.

The long-running guesthouse occupies a concrete building standing four storeys tall on the northeast side of downtown. Even if you don’t stay here, the perpetually smiling owner makes it worth the walk by offering a veritable library of books, brochures and maps—plus transport bookings—that will help you prepare for islands and mainland attractions.

Accessed by stairs that wrap around open areas on each floor decorated with potted plants and Southern Thai shadow puppets, the small rooms come with tile floors, decent beds, tiny TVs, desks, windows and hot-water showers. Walls are made of concrete, brick and wood with woven bamboo—voices do carry into the halls. You also get a fridge and private balcony in the air-con rooms. If possible, go for a room at the back of the building to avoid street noise.

Fan rooms are cramped and at least one has a low-hanging beam directly above the showerhead—tall people beware. Though not bad for the price, a mere 100 baht more gets you an air-con room that we felt was just about equal to the cheapest rooms at Sri Trang, which go for almost double the price. A cleaner who shows up daily does a great job of keeping things tidy.

The air-con rooms represent solid value for Trang.

The family staffers also provide motorbike and bicycle rental, and free WiFi that was notably fast and consistent in our third-floor room. There’s no restaurant, but a fridge is kept stocked with drinks on the ground floor. While lacking an inviting common area like the one at Sri Trang, Yamawa does have an unfurnished rooftop terrace and a couple of tables for having a beer by the footpath.

The location one kilometre northeast of the train station is a slight inconvenience, but Yamawa is only a five-minute walk from the night market and day market. To get here from the clock tower at the corner of Visetkul and Phra Ram VI roads, walk for one block north on Visetkul, cross Rachadamnern at the traffic light and you'll see the guesthouse on the left.
