Comments: A visitor to this site asked why I hadn't included the Taipei. I'm not sure. I've been past hundreds of times but for some reason never included it here. Well, here it is.

Many hotels in Thailand these days are international standard and although they are comfortable and convenient, some of the more adventurous travellers might find them a tad boring.

The Taipei is reminiscent of the kind of hotels that you used to find all over Thailand 30 years ago. It's cheap, A/C isn't automatically included with every room, and I'm sure that if the walls could talk they would have lots of interesting stories to tell.

The part of town it is in located is one that I was more familiar with as a single man in Hat Yai. The area is pretty lively at night and there is plenty going on.

Get The Best Deal At The Taipei Hotel In Hat Yai

The hotel room rates quoted on this site are walk-in rates, also known as rack rates. These are full price rates with no discounts, and in most cases this is the most expensive way to pay for a hotel room.

Booking your hotel through an on-line travel agent such as Agoda is the easiest and most convenient way to get the cheapest deal available.

  1. Agoda : Agoda rates are nearly always the cheapest by far, but normally you have to pre-pay at the time of booking. Be aware that the advertised prices don't include tax and service charges, which will add an extra 17%.
  2. Booking.com : Booking.com is normally a lot more expensive than Agoda even though the rate they advertise is the rate you pay without additional tax and service charges being added. I know a few people who like Booking.com, but I always use Agoda.
  3. Hotels Combined : This site compares rates between the major on-line travel agents for given dates. However, personal experience has shown that Agoda is usually always the cheapest for booking hotels in Southeast Asia.

  • A rather old hotel, that's somewhat run down, but for 350 baht I found it to be a better value than most of the 600-700 baht hotels that I've stayed at in Hat Yai. The room was fine, a bit rundown but not exceptionally so. Hot water and no wifi, I'd stay here again. (September 2011)

Comments: Stereotyping nationalities isn't very fair but it seems that certain traits are common with people from certain countries. As an example, when Germans come to Thailand they must stay near, or on, the beach. I heard this fact years ago from someone in the travel business and it seems to be true from my observations.

The Malaysians coming to Hat Yai like to stay right in the centre of town, that is, within spitting distance of Lee Gardens Plaza. To have a successful business in Hat Yai, it must be within a very small area in the centre of town if it depends on tourism. If it is just a short distance outside that area it will most likely fail.

Hotels a little way from the centre of town, in my humble opinion, offer much better value for money. The distances we are talking about are not huge but you need to be prepared to walk a little.

The Tanaphat Hatyai Hotel is one such hotel, a little way from the centre of town. It is a pleasant, smaller hotel and the rooms actually resemble hotel rooms rather than 'guest house' rooms. The staff are very friendly.

It is located right on Suphasarnrangsan Road so there are many eating options just yards away. Lee Gardens is about a ten minute walk away or a few minutes in a tuk-tuk.

Update February 2015: When I first checked out this hotel the room rate was Bt550 and I recommended it as a good alternative to guesthouses. For a few Baht more you got a proper hotel room instead of a guesthouse-type room.

When I checked the room rate again in February 2015 it had risen to Bt780 and the girl on reception said that she couldn't give me a discount. This is quite a steep rise and reflects how expensive Hat Yai has become in recent years.

Update November 2015: When I checked the rate again I found it had gone down to B680. 2015 hasn't been a good year for tourism in Hat Yai because most visitors are Malaysian and Malaysia has had big political and economic problems during 2015. Perhaps a lower room rate has been introduced in an attempt to entice people to stay?

Guest Comments:

  • The hotel was not full even though all the hotels in central Hat Yai were not available for the period from 9th till 10th July. This must be due to the fact that any hotels further than New Season are considered too far.

    The manager or owner was at the front desk when I arrived and the whole affair of obtaining a room was quick. I had a room on the 6th floor, the room was sound-proofed from the street below. The TV channels were again similar to VC Apartment's and like most hotels now, you can watch Fox, Universal Studios and a channel from Malaysia.

    Only 1 complimentary bottled or should I say that plasticky water container. Everything worked, the standing shower had cold/hot controls, 2 towels, 2 bars of soap and shampoo. There was a balcony and a round small table with a chair. The lighting was mostly subdued and the wifi was actually pay per hour at 20 bht per hour.

    The lobby is simple and very quiet, not a single whorist around and the area around it is just facing Supharasangan road. The bed was not hard but your body do sink into it. The 2 pillows were too soft for my liking so if one wants to read on the bed .. it is not ideal at all. The cupboard and the smaller cabinet just under the television are very sufficient for a few days stay.

    There are 2 power sockets, one at the in-house or in-hotel phone and another just at the writing table. Suprahasangan road tends to be busy but I did not hear any rowdy road races that night and also the sliding window was built well to soundproof any noise. Parking is ample for 20-25 cars and I parked my rented Honda just beside the main building.

    The front desk girl working in the evening was friendly .. to sum it up .. Thanaphat is not often fully booked because it is not affiliated with any tour agencies in Hat Yai and it will remain so that way and I am sure just like VC Apartments, it might be fully booked every week but just maybe due to the distance, rooms can still be had.

Comments: A long-term stay 'Mansion' building, close to the bus station and the weekend night market. It is also close to Thungsao Mansion and Chudchada Place, both of which, in my humble opinion, offer better value for money. Facilities in all of these places are basically the same (TV with UBC, fridge, wireless Internet, hot water) but a fridge and TV will cost you Bt1,000 a month more here compared to the other two I mentioned. Wireless Internet access is free.

It is located only a matter of yards away from the bus station and the night market which runs from Thursday to Sunday. Rooms are also available on a daily basis which might be handy for someone catching an early bus out of Hat Yai.

Terrace View Residence

Longitude: E 100° 29' 07.2" (E 100° 29.121')

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: Terrace View is a lot more upmarket than the majority of Hat Yai apartment buildings without being too expensive. I stayed there for five years.

It is located conveniently near the Hat Yai Bangkok hospital, Carrefour, Lotus and Mor Or. Terrace View has a contract with the Hat Yai Bangkok hospital for staff accommodation and many of the residents are therefore doctors and nurses.

Most people staying there are quiet, respectable, professional people but during my stay I had to put up with some really obnoxious neighbours on a few occasions. When this happens, unfortunately, the Thai staff do not know how to deal with the problem.

Being woken up every night at 3am by a Coyote dancer returning home from work and fighting and screaming with another Thai girl can make your life pretty miserable.

However, if you are lucky and have good neighbours it is a great place to stay. The rooms are clean, pleasant, well furnished and a decent size. Fridges and TVs are not supplied. You can either buy your own or rent these things from the apartment.

There is a laundry room with washers and dryers, a filtered drinking water machine, a minimart, and a full service laundry. All rooms have access to Wi-Fi Internet.

The normal rooms are all the same size but those with a better view are more expensive (Bt5,500 or Bt6,000). Rooms on the second floor have a terrace outside, which is very pleasant, and these rooms cost Bt6,500.

There are a limited number of suites with two rooms and a kitchen counter. These are very comfortable and suite residents also get a reserved car parking space. Originally these were Bt14,000 per month but I think the price went down to Bt13,000.

There is parking on the ground floor and also next door. A few years ago there were always free car parking spaces but with so many residents having cars now it can sometimes be difficult finding a space.

There is 24 hour security consisting of security guards and CCTV monitoring. Terrace View attracts wealthier residents than most apartment buildings and some years ago it was being targeted by criminals.

The girl staying next door to me had her room broken into and the thief beat her up and attempted to rape her as well as stealing money and other things.

After that, Terrace View beefed up the security. All rooms were fitted with burglar bars, more CCTV cameras were installed, and external lighting was added outside the building. It's OK now but remember always to keep your burglar bars locked.

I thoroughly recommend it. The building itself is great, the general staff are friendly, and the management are very switched on and helpful.

Comments: This hotel is located in the Raj Uthit area. Nearby hotels include Silom Palace and Marina Hotel. Also nearby is Oliver massage, which is very popular with Malaysian tourists.

The hotel is tucked away in a small Soi and so well hidden that it eluded me for eight years. It was only after receiving an enquiry about the hotel that I did some research and found it.

An advantage to its location is that it will probably be fairly quiet at night.

Comments: The Three Hat Yai opened in 2017 and it is a small (just 26 rooms), very pleasant hotel located close to the centre of the downtown area. It is close to the D-One Hotel and also B's Sweet restaurant. The receptionist I chatted with was a very pleasant girl and spoke quite good English.

There are cheaper places to stay in this area and the room rates compared to other places are quite high, however, it is more upmarket and a lot more comfortable than cheaper hotels. The room rates I have quoted are walk-in rates, but you will most likely find that the on-line Agoda rates are cheaper.

The rooms are very comfortable and well equipped and the bathrooms have a few features that are quite unusual for Hat Yai hotels, including air bubble showers and Japanese-style toilets with self-cleaning and heated seat functions.

There isn't a real breakfast, but toast and coffee are available in the morning between 07:00 and 10:00. From 10:00 to 17:00 a free snack bar is provided for guests.

The different room rates quoted by the hotel are not for different types of room, but depend on which day of the week you stay.

From Monday to Thursday the rate is Bt1,690 and from Friday to Sunday it is Bt1,790. Room rates are based on two people only. If there are more than two people staying the charge for an extra bed is Bt500.

The hotel has a no smoking policy.

Water is charged for at Bt200 a month and electricity at Bt7 per unit. The bus station is close by. Thungsao Road is also home to many 'Karaoke' bars where not a lot of singing takes place but where other urges can be satisfied.

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: Along this stretch of road there has been a series of bars and restaurants over the years that have opened, failed to attract any customers, and then closed. The bars and restaurants have now gone, and a large apartment building has taken their place. It took about five years to build.

At Bt6,500 per month it is at the top end of the apartment market in Hat Yai. It will cost you more than many other places, but by paying more you are less likely to have the kind of Thai neighbours that you would probably rather not have. The kind of Thais that stay in apartment buildings at the bottom of the market, generally, have no consideration for other residents and living in the same building can be a bit of a nightmare.

The location is quite good and it is in one of the better areas of Hat Yai. It is an easy walk to Tesco Lotus and the Prince of Songkla University, and you can also walk to the Hat Yai Bangkok Hospital and Big C Extra fairly easily.

The rooms have TVs, fridges, A/C, and water heaters in the shower. There is a small minimart, but no in-house laundry facilities. Conveniently, there is a branch of 7-Eleven on the opposite side of the road.

I don't know why apartment buildings are called mansions in Thailand, but they are. Andrew Biggs makes a joke of this by telling his readers that this morning he left his mansion at 8am. If you stay at KT, you can also tell your friends that you live in a mansion.

When staying in long term accommodation in Thailand there is normally a two or three month minimum stay and you also have to leave a deposit equivalent to one or two months' rent. These things vary from place to place and are sometimes negotiable. You also need to supply your own bedsheets and towels.

Electricity and water charges aren't included in the monthly rate and every month you will be given a bill for these utilities . Water is usually about Bt100 per month and electricity depends very much on how attached you are to air-conditioning.

This is one of the long term apartment buildings that also offers daily stays - not all of them do. If you just want to stay for a night or two it will cost you Bt700 per night. Of course, on a daily basis they will supply bedsheets and towels, and electricity and water charges are included.

The hotel room rates quoted on this site are walk-in rates, also known as rack rates. These are full price rates with no discounts, and in most cases this is the most expensive way to pay for a hotel room.

Booking your hotel through an on-line travel agent such as Agoda is the easiest and most convenient way to get the cheapest deal available.

  1. Agoda : Agoda rates are nearly always the cheapest by far, but normally you have to pre-pay at the time of booking. Be aware that the advertised prices don't include tax and service charges, which will add an extra 17%.
  2. Booking.com : Booking.com is normally a lot more expensive than Agoda even though the rate they advertise is the rate you pay without additional tax and service charges being added. I know a few people who like Booking.com, but I always use Agoda.
  3. Hotels Combined : This site compares rates between the major on-line travel agents for given dates. However, personal experience has shown that Agoda is usually always the cheapest for booking hotels in Southeast Asia.

Comments: Going into one of these old Chinese hotels in Thailand is like going back in time. Most hotels in Thailand these days are basically Western standard, but when I first visited Thailand in 1987 there were a lot like this one. They are still there but the numbers are decreasing.

There is nothing on the ground floor at street level apart from a small doorway. As you enter the doorway you climb a set of stairs and come to the old-fashioned hotel reception.

The rooms are fairly clean but extremely basic. There is a TV, but no fridge, no minibar, and no hot water in the shower. Single rooms (one double bed) are Bt350 with a fan or Bt400 with A/C. A twin room (two twin beds) with A/C is Bt500.

The location is bang in the middle of the tourist area. It is less than a minute's walk to Lee Gardens Plaza, and Suntisook market is just across the road. The hotel has its own massage shop just next door to the front desk.

Some travellers like these kind of places not just because they are cheap, but because of the experience of staying in an old style Chinese-Thai hotel. Modern hotels are very comfortable but they can also be a bit bland.

Comments: This hotel is located directed above Hat Yai railway station and it opened in October or November 2015. I'm not sure who owns and runs it because the land it is on must be owned by the national Thai Railway board.

There are 70 rooms, some of which are standard rooms and some of which are suites. The standard rooms are quite a good size and the suites are very spacious. Standard rooms cost Bt800 per night and suites with a balcony cost Bt1,400. Suites without a balcony cost Bt1,200. If there was a really fantastic view it might be worth paying the extra Bt200 for a balcony, but the views I saw weren't that great. These are walk-in rates and you can probably get a better deal by booking on-line in advance.

Room rates include breakfast, which is served downstairs in the restaurant. The restaurant is adjacent to the railway platform so you can watch the trains go past as you eat your bacon and eggs (or boiled rice). I also noticed a massage shop near the restaurant.

When I took a look in December 2015 everything was still new and clean, but the rooms looked very plain. The walls, sheets and furniture are all white (with very few pictures on the walls) and thus the rooms look a little like private rooms in a hospital. There is also a dormitory with 30 beds. When I went to look at the hotel the dormitory wasn't finished, but it was completed a few months later. This would be a good alternative to one of the hostels or cheap guesthouses in Hat Yai and it couldn't be better located for the train station if you need to catch a train early the following morning.

Comments: This is more like an apartment building than a hotel, but rooms are also offered on a nightly basis and it would be an excellent alternative to many hotels in Hat Yai. It opened on 11th October 2015 and when I went to take a look a couple of weeks later there were still some rooms that hadn't been used.

It is a really nice place. The rooms are very comfortable with very pleasant bathrooms. It's a little way from the central tourist district, but if you don't mind walking 10 minutes to Lee Gardens it won't be a problem. I think that the location is good - it's close to all of the food vendors on Supasarnrangsan Road, but the Soi it is in is quiet.

There is no restaurant, but near the reception area there is a small coffee station, which is free for guests to use. There is a car park next door and although it isn't covered this is a very useful facility because car parking spaces are hard to find in central Hat Yai.

U Hatyai is located near to the Friendship Unity Hospital, Tanaphat Hotel and Glai Mor Fun dental clinic.

Get The Best Deal On Your Hat Yai Hotel Room

Listed opposite are some of my personal recommendations for hotels in Hat Yai based on budget. I have lived permanently in Hat Yai since 2003 and my recommendations are based on a lot of local knowledge.

Each link will take you to the relevant page on the Agoda website where you can see photos, read reviews, and book on-line. I use Agoda to book all of my own hotels in Thailand and the Southeast Asia region. Agoda hotel rates are usually always the lowest and I have received good customer service, therefore I am happy to recommend the company to other people. Here is some analysis I did regarding booking hotels in Southeast Asia.

Booking.com used to be more expensive than Agoda, but when I have checked hotel prices recently I have found their rates to be quite competitive. Unlike Agoda, you don't need to pay at the time of booking with Booking.com - you can simply pay at the hotel when you check in. Also, Booking.com show you total prices whereas Agoda show you a price and then add on 17% for tax and service charge.

If you want to compare prices between different on-line travel agents (OTAs) for a specific hotel, you can use a company such as HotelsCombined.
