Baan Palm Thong Guesthouse (ex 813 Khaolak Hostel) - cheap hotel in Khao Lak

UPD. Due to the fact that my review was written in October 2015, there are some changes for today in October 2017. Gest changed the sign and the owner, now it is called Baan Palm Thong Guesthouse.

I arrived in Khao Lak in the evening, and as you know,Thais go to bed early, so the choice of hotels was not great. Since I liked the Bang Nian area, here I started looking for a hotel. I turned on the app on my phone and started looking for the nearest hotels on the map. Very comfortably. But not always true.

For example, the application shows that the numbersthere are vacant ones, but you come to the hotel and call the number indicated at the front desk - a sleepy voice says that there are no rooms. I am sure that the rooms actually were, just too lazy for someone to go and populate a person for one night.

So the third hotel in a bill that came to me for the price was 813 Hostel. And the next night I spent the night in romantic bungalow.

Price and reservation

If you come to Baan Palm Thong Guesthousein the evening, so that there are no overlays, like mine, it is better to book a hotel in advance. I paid 700 baht per night for a fairly spacious room. At first they wanted 800 baht, but this price includes breakfast, I refused it, which is why it turned out cheaper. I suppose that in addition to such rooms there are also shared rooms.

Be sure (and I insist) check availabilitydiscounts or special offers on the excellent Roomguru service. It will quickly and simply show you discounts in all existing reservation systems. In Asia, for example, there are lots of offers on Agoda.com that are much more interesting than on exactly the same hotels on Booking.com.

Interior

The interior is rather modest and slightlyis underground. It consists of simple furniture, gray walls and gloomy lighting. Perhaps, if I had entered the day, when the sun was shining brightly and illuminating the room, I would have driven into the next room, where the balcony was not covered with a sheet of metal (I had an extreme room and the balcony was for some reason half closed).

But in general, everything else is fine: a large area, there is air conditioning, a mini-fridge, a couple of bottles of water, hot water in the bathroom (plus shampoo and gel), a desk. Visually, the hotel is not old. Of the benefits - at the reception there was a man somewhere until 10 in the evening. Of the minuses for me - not working Wifi. He was, but for some reason the Internet was not.

It is very easy to find. First, a large inscription on the hotel, and secondly, 711 will be flat across the road.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
