I booked 30 minutes before showing up which confused the night watch a bit and him not speaking English and me no Thai we gestured around a bit, I showed reservation on my phone and we where all set. It's 10km from the centre but I didn't care. Its nice and quite, clean everything in the room works Thai style, wifi, TV, coffee, bottled water and hot shower!
The girl at the reception was helpful to help me get around and always with a big and friendly smile.
The 'antique' billiard table is still there but these things are not made for the Thai outdoor climate so who cares the state it's in...it's part of the 'ambiance'.
If I ever go back to Ubon I'll stay here again. More
