Nice quiet hotel

Posted Mar 21, 2017
Hotel was very nice however if I had to be picky the lobby lead into some kind of building site where the restaurant seemed a little derelict. Apart from this, nice clean hotel, great quiet location about 5-10 minute walk away from the Centre meaning you have a good nights sleep

Bed and mattress

Posted Mar 18, 2017
Mattress is very old and no more spring. You will sink in to the mattress. Can't sleep all night. Pillows are also very old and no fluffy at all. I had to duble pillow for the night.

Below average hotel but close to city.

Posted Mar 12, 2017
Not so good. Difficult to get hotware in the bath. Room had bad smell on the first day. Never get coffe or tea unless you ask. Have to walk some distance for breakfast. Mosquito in the room. One positive point is room and bath size large. Location good.

Nice hotel

Posted Mar 8, 2017
Pros: Reasonable priced.
Cons: A bar and restaurant.
Location: Quite but close to the town.
Reasonably priced hotel just outside the moat, so quite, but within walking distance of town.

Not bad but could do better

Posted Mar 4, 2017
Pros: Location
Cons: cleaning
Location: handy to most things
The room I booked online was not available on arrival, for some reason was down graded to a lesser room. Room had only three quarter bed, Room had many mosquitoes, the floor had not ben cleaned for some time as feet were black after only minutes of being there. Neighbours rooster starts at 4.30am. On the up side it was a good price maybe because of the down grade and convenient to most things, good location.

Located just outside of the Northern city wall

Posted Feb 23, 2017
Pros: Hotel staff friendly and helpful. Good clean towels every day.
Cons: A complete renovation is really what is required "IF" the owners wish the hotel to be 3 star status.
Location: Located just outside of the Northern city wall (East Side) and requires a lengthy walk to reach city centre. Beware the Tuk-Tuks they charge too much
Pictures in the brochure do not reflect the current status of the hotel, which has clearly seen better days. However, although the rooms were basic, they were clean throughout my 5 day stay. This hotel would appear to be better than the average Back-Packer Hostels in town but definitely not a 3 star hotel. "Basic" best sums-up the Royal Panarai, but the reception and other staff were very obliging and helpful. There is WiFi on every floor but as in many places in Thailand the internet is not exactly fast ... but it works. There is hot and cold water in the bathroom but ... hot water comes and goes, I assume depending on who is showering elsewhere at the same time ... so best to shower out of peak times. Clean towels every day, which is a plus! Hot water boiler and cups in the room to make tea or coffee. There is 7/11 next to the Hotel where you can buy your coffee/tea, or pot noodles if you are hungry ... no food available at this hotel although there is a service whereby food can be ordered from a local café (did not experience this though). This Hotel is is set-back from the road and is not easy to see during daylight hours. Coming out of the city at the N/E corner, look for a 7/11 on the left. Hotel entrance immediately after. Proper taxis not readily available like they are in Bangkok, but the Uber taxi service works well if you don't want a tuk-tuk or Baht Bus.

Ok

Posted Feb 19, 2017
Pros: Location and spacious Kingbed Room
Cons: Fix the bathroom, and hot water
Location: Old city close by. Very short walk.
Hotel was in a fantastic location. seongteaws*/shuttles, tuktuks all knew where it was. Short walk to the old district which is filled with many restaurants, exchange banks, things to do, etc. Had a king sized bed/room. Very spacious for just one person. As for most places in Asia the beds are very stiff, so beware- but i prefer a firm bed. The bathroom had much to be left to desire. The screen to the uncloseable window was filled with dead huge bugs. Which looks like itd be very easy to clean out if someone would just take the time. The caulking to the shower was very discolored, huge chunks missing, and mold in certain places. The water was warm at various intervals, never getting quite hot, but getting cold very often.
