    Tak Hotel Reviews

    Whenever I'm heading north or doing a Mae Sot visa run I often stay for a night in Tak . Its a pretty laid back town on the Ping river and the local hotels have to be amongst the best value in Thailand.

    The Rajaburi Boutique Hotel Personaly, I find the word boutique used in a hotel name normaly doesn't amount to much except a few silk wall hangings, flowers floating in a dish and an excuse to bump up the price. Not so at the Rajaburi. Rooms in the wing start from 350 whilst those in the main block go for 500 including Thai buffet breakfast or 700 if you want an American breakfast. The former is the better deal. All rooms are very clean and well furnished and there is cable T.V ( poor ) hot water and a fridge.There is also free wi fi if you have a laptop.
    The hotel is on the main road through town , Pahonyothin , and is on the right if you are heading north. Tel 055 572111

    The Entrance and Lobby :










    The rooms are exceptional value for 500 baht :












    Next up is the Suan Sin Hotel , also on the main road, to the right of the T junction you meet when you cross the river when coming from Bangkok. It is only about 500 metres from the Rajaburi.

    This hotel is only 370 a night and includes free coffee and toast down in the lobby. Just enough to hold you until mid day. All rooms are air con and have hot water, fridge and cable t.v. ( poor ) The rooms are very clean and the hotel has its own restaurant which serves good Thai food in a nice setting at a reasonable price .








    The rooms









    The front garden




    There is a very nice night market in town which I'll post if I can find it.

    Damn those look nice. Gives you an idea how much people are being ripped off in the heavy tourist areas.

    Yes, the Rajaburi does have suites from 1000 baht. Unfortunately for them, they have several large billboards on the road approaching Tak advertising 500 baht per room. When you get there, there is a massive sign outside the hotel also advertising 500 baht. To the side of the main hotel there is a wing with rooms for 350 for truckies but i didn't check them out.

    I have stayed at other hotels in Tak and they have all been cheap. There is one overlooking a pond with rooms for 490 with full American breakfast for 2, very nice but I had no pics to post. I think its a case of too many hotels chasing too few tourists.

    Probably rated as a 2 or 3 star in Thailand Peter but hard to beat at 500 baht. How much would a 5 star hotel in Beijing or Shanghai cost ? Quite a lot more I would think.

    Just returned from Tak and since our usual hotels were full we stopped again at the Ko Loi Golden Park hotel : tel 05 551 7461 - 3

    Koh Loi Golden Park Hotel Tak

    490 baht a night for a room with a double bed on the ground floor including free breakfast .

    The front entrance :




    Our wing




    Which is right next door to the hotels restaurant building which also doubles as the local Black Canyon outlet so plenty of western food available.




    Our room was , as mentioned on the ground floor with nice views over the gardens






    The room was very clean with a good choice of t.v channels and an abundance of hot water , which is a lot softer than the water you get in Bangkok.







    Unfortunately, our air conditioner proved to be a bit noisy so might be worth checking out before you un pack as you might need to change rooms.


    The free breakfast was not as good as the first time we stayed here. Gone was the orange juice, bacon and grilled tomatoes. All that you get is ham , eggs, a sausage and a coffee. Still, enough to get you going and better than having to drive around looking for an eatery.
