Normally when I visit udonthani I stay in the centre, 5 minute walk away, this time I saw this place on booking. Com and decided to contact the guest house via Facebook, they replied and answered my questions very quickly so I decided to have a change, I was so happy to find this place, lovely room, spotless, a very friendly and warm family, breakfast was simple, good and well presented. Bed was good quality, high quality fittings in bathroom. Fresh water and towels, endless cups of tea/coffee/chocolate.very close to 7-11 and tesco etc, Fantastic value for money.. See you again soon.. Tom.
Great budget room. Clean room, good location near UD Town mall and lovely lady at reception. Only downside is the railway line beside which get a little loud when the trains come through although it is not very often.
Good place,familiar ambience,the owner is really friendly and helpfull. Nice room
With balcony very clean and confortable,big bed and great value for price,breakfast is included in the price, basic but very good,if i will be back in udon i will come back. Thanks!
I rate this well because of its balance of fair price, friendly staff and convenient location.
On the other hand:
We had mosquitoes in the room every night. No idea how they get in. Plenty of mosquitoes outside around the breakfast area, too. Which brings me to the next point.
Breakfast is two over-poached eggs with toast. That's it. All served with condiments in brand name bottles that have been repeatedly filled with MAKRO substitutes, and not necessarily cleaned between fillings. (There is something about this practice that I find grubby. I don't really mind MAKRO jam, but their ketchup isn't great.)
Noise. We had a corner room facing the main road and the railway line. Maybe other rooms suffer less from the permanent rumble and occasional train. There are trains before 6am, so be prepared.
It's hard to fault this place. Surada is the name of the owner and her 2 daughters are also on the staff, with 2 other ladies. They couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. Forget the fact it's by the train line. I didn't hear a single train. I was given a huge room (the size of a suite) plus spacious rooftop balcony, too. Room 7, I think. Breakfast consisted of eggs on toast (another traveler recommended scrambled, so that's what I had) and unlimited coffee. My room had a huge fridge with just 2 complementary bottles of water inside, so I popped down the road to Tesco supermarket and bought some cereal, milk and fruit.
It's in a handy spot, a 10-minute walk to the train station, Central Plaza and bars area. The only minor quibble I'd have is that the stay would be even better if each room had kettles with tea/coffee. It was a tad inconvenient to have to go downstairs each time I wanted a cup. But would I go back? You bet your life!
