Happen to stay overnight in Hat Yai, The city itself totally overpriced, so hotels as well. Do not be fulled by looking just how reception was decorated. Always check ROOMS! For 450 b( very high price, Normal price in Thai for that kind is 200 TOP!) the only option they have is a small room with no window.but with AC...

Recommended in the Lonely Planet as being clean, but the smell in our room was pretty rank. It smelt like urine mixed with stale smoke. We were pretty convinced the sheets hadn't been changed as there was quite a bit of hair in the bed. Also, we asked if we could walk to the night market (which you can) and...

The King's for a long time has been a cheap-yet-cheerful alternative to those budget guesthouses with squatter toilets, where you have to buy the toilet paper by the sheet. It's shabby but clean, having been built 50 years ago, with many of the rooms having holes in the plaster and peeling paint. BUT it's also got aircon, TV(!) and a...

Of course when you enter your room for the first time all the defects are immediately apparent: stains on the curtains, holes and frays on the carpet, wallpaper partly unstuck, stile of the bathroom split, etc...the whole would need serious renovation, still, for TBH 500 you have a single bedroom with large and comfy bed, AC, free WIFI in the...

This was a rather bizarre experience. On check in the bellboy was excessively helpful. I told him 5 times that he didn't need to carry my bags, and he kept trying to grab them anyway. He walked with me up to my room and kept trying to demonstrate to me that all the lights worked, even though I kept shooing...
