I am halfway done drafting the last day of our 3D2N road trip to Khao Yai with our pre-booked driver from Bangkok. I wasn’t in charge of accommodation this time round. As I was busy from work weeks before the trip, Sister took charge of accommodation. Despite so, I had shortlisted a few hotels in Khao Yai for reference but Sister suggested that we go economical with accommodation.
This was the only picture which I had of the hotel exterior look. Mom photo bombed my picture at the time when this picture was captured. The hotel provides ample parking spaces for hotel guests. The car park could fit about 10 cars, I think? Aside from foreign tourists, the hotel housed quite a bit of local tourists too during our stay.
This is the lobby of the hotel whereby all check-in and check-out procedures are performed. Please note that the check-in desk is only available until 7PM. If you will be having a late arrival, do inform the hotel in advance so that they can arrange something out of the standard check-in time. Check-in and check-out procedures were a brisk. Passports are required at the time of check-in.
Dining area is also located in the lobby area. Breakfast is provided complimentary by the hotel on every morning from 7AM until 10AM. Breakfast was simple but adequate. The kitchen serves minced pork porridge and American Breakfast. Honestly speaking, I’m not a porridge person myself but their minced pork porridge was good.
Upon seated, one of the staffs will approach and ask the kind of eggs preferred for American Breakfast. They have sunny side up and scrambled. Aside from American Breakfast and minced pork porridge, they serve wholemeal bread slices with bread toasters stationed next to the bread storage container. Butter and jam spread are provided too.
Beverages wise, they provide 3 in 1 instant coffee sachets, tea bags, milk and orange juice. All in all, I was impressed with the breakfast spread despite it wasn’t as comprehensive as the ones I had before.
Sister booked a Triple Room whereby it came with a double bed and a single bed. We even have a small balcony with green view. Air-conditioning wasn’t centralized but built-in split unit in each and every room. The room may looked small in the picture but it was actually big enough for the three of us with ample space to store our luggage.
This is the bathroom with heated water. The toilet came with basic toiletries like hair shampoo, hair conditioner and body wash gel. I like that they provide enough towels for everyday use. Some accommodations provide only one big towel per hotel guest.
Verdict: I like the customer service of the hotel staffs. They were helpful and polite. On our first day in Khao Yai, we went Pak Chong Night Market for dinner. With limited seating available at the night market, we resorted to bringing our food back to the hotel. The receptionist was kind enough to allow us to use the dining area and even provided us food utensils.
Free flow of hot and cold drinking water are available all day round from the water dispenser machine located in the lobby. The housekeepers replenished three bottles of mineral water in our room every time they make up the room. I liked that the brand of drinking water which they use didn’t come with a weird taste as compared to the other brands of drinking water which I had tasted throughout my trip in Thailand.
The mattress was stiff in my opinion which led to bad sleep throughout my stay in Khao Yai. Mom however loved the stiff mattress and slept soundly throughout the trip. LOL! The hotel is conveniently located nearby to a 7-Eleven, Mu Si Night Market and a local restaurant in within walking distance from the hotel entrance. However, we later found out that there was no self-service laundry service in the hotel itself but couldn’t be sure if there is any laundry service nearby the hotel.
