Comments: A conveniently located apartment building for long term stays or daily rental. The facilities include cable TV, air-conditioning and 24 hour security. There is a WiFi access point in the reception area. There was a time when very few of the rooms could get a signal but I think it's better now.

The location is almost next door to the New Season hotel and therefore very convenient for Lee Gardens and all the other shops and restaurants in central Hat Yai. Pronounced 'Wee See' in Thai.

Let me talk briefly about customer service in Thailand. Occasionally customer service is satisfactory, but most of the time it ranges between non-existent and diabolical.

A visitor to this site who wanted to book a room wrote to tell me that he couldn't contact VC by phone. I tried myself. One number is answered by a machine in Thai and a message tells you to press 0 to speak to the operator. When you do this, no one answers. The other number rings but no one answers. Great.

I called into VC at 10am the next day to confirm that the telephone numbers I had were correct and to ask if they had an e-mail address. The receptionist hadn't yet arrived for work and no one else was able to give me any information. A business card I was given had the same telephone numbers as those above.

Unfortunately, this type of thing isn't untypical for Thailand. You can only contact places by phone and they don't answer the phones. Even if somewhere publishes an e-mail address you will often find that they don't check, or don't reply to, e-mails.

I'm afraid that there is no easy solution. In this case all I could suggest was to keep calling until someone answered the phone. Of course, even if you manage to get your call answered you are then faced with the usual language barriers that exist in Thailand. Even if you can speak some Thai, as soon as a Thai realises it is a foreigner speaking they close their ears and refuse to understand.

I'm sure that if you turn up at VC in person wanting a room, everything will be fine. However, if you are trying to book a room in advance from home, expect some problems.

Guest Comments:

  • Last Friday, I arrived in Hat yai. As I stayed at V.C, January, 2012. So, I went there, again. Reception was nice as usual. But price is changed. 500 baht, last time. But this time, it was 600. I asked to her, she said, it is increased. Ok.

    Inside is still same. Cool inside, still no fridge. Just a bit ants, but that is fine. Shampoo and soap were provided. Toothpaste, you have to bring. Very nice location. Still good for budget. (January 2013)

  • 550 baht a night now. Nice large, spartan room with good a/c and wifi. The balcony is perfect for drying cloths, and the location is also perfect. (July 2012)
  • VC apartment was overall a good place to stay. The location was great, the staff and her friends were nice enough to guide me on how to get to different places e.g advice on border run, the room was spacious and the toilet was good enough. But they didn't want to us to use the VC wireless line and told us to tap onto someone else's unprotected by password connection. Good place still.
  • I knew where this place was but had never tried it as my impression of an apartment was just that it is an apartment not a proper hotel but how surprised I was!

    This conveniently located place is between Mayflower Grande Hotel and The New Season Hotel. It offers a clean, quiet, wi-fi enabled room with a working hot/cold shower although the pressure is a bit mild. There is clear tv reception with many channels and I especially like that the Espn channel is not a voice over by a Thai commentator. The bed is soft and 2 towels, 2 bars of soap, a small bottle of shampoo and a blanket is provided including 2 bottles of mineral drinking water. There is no fridge but a 7-Eleven is just a few metres away. During this year's Chinese New Year in Hat Yai, almost all the hotels if not all increased their rates to almost 50%... and when I was informed that Indra Hotel was asking for 1100 baht. that just made me decide to check out VC Apartment.

    Thank goodness that now I have another choice. WiFi is also available and you can get the password from the counter. There is a quaint coffee shop adjoining this place and for 500 bht per night, I will be back again. A hidden oasis of calm in central Hat Yai. (February 2011)

Comments: This small hotel, which had just 30 rooms, was located in the heart of one of Hat Yai's red light districts adjacent to several 'karaoke' bars - the type of karaoke bars where never a song is sung. The hotel motto was, "Clean room, low price, good service."

I never stayed there, but the room rates were cheap and the staff were friendly. This was a pleasant surprise after encountering so many surly reception staff in Hat Yai hotels who were suspicious as to why I asked questions and refused to answer.

I only ever received two guest reviews for the Visa, one was fairly positive and the other not so - see below. The location where it is located isn't one that I visit very often, but while passing in October 2015 I saw that it had closed. There was a sign outside stating that the owner needs to sell the hotel urgently.

If you would like to own a small hotel in Hat Yai in an area where lots of Hat Yai's infamous nighttime activities take place, this could be the opportunity you have been waiting for.

Guest Comments:

  • Truly a crappy hotel. The room was clean, in the sense that it was not dirty, but it was just so falling apart. There were big holes in the ceiling and walls, the bathroom was a complete mess. I didn't try the TV as it was unplugged and there was no wifi. For an a/c room I think it was 500 now. The people that run it are nice and it has a homey feel to the lobby.

    Tip: If you stay here and have a internet devise and have a room facing the Diaichi Hotel, just walk to their lobby and ask for their wifi password, it worked for the most part for me. (February 2013)

  • This page really helped me locate the Visa Hotel, your comments were precise and the address accurate. The stay in visa was extremely comfortable for the price paid however i would only complain about the bathroom, but for the price paid never mind. Thanks a lot for provide this information. (December 2010)

Get The Best Deal At The V.L. 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.

Guest Comments:

  • superb good room...shower is strong, air cond is cold...great location, abit far from lee garden, abit quiet at nite but very busy during day time... definately will come back to this hotel (September 2012)
  • We liked the hotel. We were given a walk-in rate of THB 900 need for a twin room with breakfast included--for 2 adults and 2 young children aged 6 and 8. We had to negotiate a bit for the breakfast to be included for the children.

    we were provided with a room on the 11th floor with great views looking towards the airport and the train station to the left which appeared within walking distance. We could see some folks (expats?) playing tennis late at night with flood lights on courts nearby the train station. The rooms were of adequate size, not too big, not too small. While we did not have to pay extra for our children as they were sleeping on existing beds, the hotel does charge extra for additional blankets and pillows (THB100-200). We did not request any extras.

    The room and the bathroom were both generally clean, but certainly not spotless. No complaints about sheets, towels, mattresses etc. We were quite comfortable and really cannot expect more for THB 900. The staff at the reception were generally friendly and would return smiles. We paid upfront at check in for two nights---- THB 1800 plus 200 THB key deposit. The key deposit was returned to us at check out without hassle after a check of the room. The included breakfast was okay, some Thai dishes and western items such as sausages, 'manufactured' breakfast salami, fried eggs, toast, a sweet donut type pastry and coffee.

    For THB 900 one really cannot expect more. Thanks again to your web site, a great attraction was the fact that the hotel is adjacent to Kim Yong market. A blue Songthaew to the airport could be found just across the street to the right from the main entrance of the hotel which was important to us as we had a flight catch. We paid THB 30 each for two adults to the airport. Children free. All in all a good experience and would recommend the VL hotel. Incidentally, the off season rate appears better for a walk in as breakfast is included whereas as online booking (eg via Agoda) will likely not include breakfast for the same rate. (May 2012)

  • This was my very first hotel on my maiden arrival in Hat Yai so much so that I did not realize that the coach buses to Kuala Lumpur also departs at seven pm in the evening! I booked a room online for 2 nights and I was given a room with twin beds facing the main street. I also had to wait for half an hour as the room was being made up so it was not a good first impression. The breakfast that came with the hotel's rate was not buffet style but the type where you choose Set A, B or C. I had to omit the bacon from my order as it is non-halal. The room was just ordinary and the plus factor was that it is also soundproofed. I did not inquire about the wifi connection but at 690 bht, it is worth a return visit, one day. (December 2005)

Comments: This hotel - located near the Hatyai Merridian Hotel, Ambassador Hotel and next door to the naughty K&K massage shop, is fairly new. I believe it was opened in 2015 and it is in an area that is popular with Malaysian tourists.

There are lots of massage shops in this area, and also a few aap op nuat (bath and sex) venues (Atami and Paris). The hotel also has its own in-house massage shop.

Room rates are reasonable and the location is quite lively, albeit quite seedy also. There are a total of 49 rooms.

Comments: This was my first semi-permanent home in Hat Yai at the end of 2003. Prior to that I had stayed in hotels. It is a modern building with nice tiled floors and carved wooden doors. The rooms (just 24 of them) are clean and comfortable but not very large. The bathrooms have Western style toilets with hot showers and the staff (just three girls on reception who provide 24-7 coverage, and a maid) are friendly.

Wanthana is located on a busy road which is convenient for restaurants and just a few minutes walk away from the centre of Hat Yai. The location is noisy though, especially when the local motorbike racers come out to illegally street race in the early hours of the morning. Suphasarnrangsan Road suffers from loud traffic noise 24 hours a day.

The monthly rate goes down to Bt5,800 for stays of three months or longer. On the monthly rate electricity is charged for separately at Bt6 per unit.

Comments: A few Thais have the amazing ability to be able to piss me off with a single word. That was the case with the guy working on reception at Wattana Place who greeted me with a fixed stare and an arrogant, surly, rude, "Yes?" He was a Thai version of Basil Fawlty on a particularly bad day.

He insisted on trying to speak English, but whenever I asked him a question in English he couldn't understand. I then had to ask him in Thai. Despite demonstrating that my Thai was far superior to his English, he still insisted on trying to speak English.

He was completely uncooperative and wouldn't answer any of my questions. He kept repeating the phrase, "Full house, full house," so I guess he was playing cards behind the desk.

My next experience of this place was no better. I was standing outside writing something in a notepad when a woman on a motorbike left the building. When she saw me she slowed right down and just stared at me fiercely in a very aggressive manner. I assume she was one of the owners. It seems that all of the people working at Wattana Place have some serious attitude problems.

In its favour, Wattana Place is in a quiet location and it's not too far from downtown. However, if my experience was typical, the owners/management/staff there are extremely rude and surly. For that reason I can't recommend this place.

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: As far as I am aware, this is the most expensive apartment building in Hat Yai. It is clear that the developers have targeted the farang, Malaysian, Singapore market as most locals would have a heart attack over the prices. To give you an idea, most Thais in Hat Yai consider Bt4,000 a month for a room to be expensive and only expect to pay around Bt2,000 - Bt2,500.

The strategy of targeting wealthy expat clients is standard practice in tourist resorts such as Phuket but a little riskier in places such as Hat Yai because there isn't the same farang demand for rented apartments. The apartment building looks just like something you would expect to find in Phuket, except the nearest beach is in Songkhla.

The building is pleasantly decorated and painted in Meditteranean pastels. There is a small pool, a gym, and a restaurant. Pool, jacuzzi and gym use, as well as Internet and UBC TV are included in the room rates which is just as well. Each room has a TV, a fridge and a small safe - the in-room safe being a nice touch.

Also included in the room rate is a cleaning service twice a week, towel and bedding changes once a week, and laundry up to 70 pieces a month. All these things help to offset the high rates and would normally they would be additional costs.

With the Executive and Grand studios you get an increased laundry allowance, a microwave oven, free drinking water and breakfast 16 times a month. Building security looks to be very good, which is an added bonus.

Weenee Place would suit someone who didn't plan to stay in town for very long, and who didn't want to buy bedsheets and towels, etc. Some rooms are available for just one night so it can also be used as an alternative to a hotel.

I was disappointed at how small the rooms were; not only the studios but the 'Grand Studios' as well. The location isn't exactly scenic or convenient. The only scenic areas in Hat Yai are out by the hills. From Weenee, it's about a five minute walk to Phetkasem Road where there are lots of different transport options and Carrefour isn't too far away.

Electricity is charged at Bt7 per unit. Water is Bt100 a month for a maximum of five units and each unit above that is charged at Bt17. It seems incredibly stingy to charge additionally for water at these room rates. Room deposits are 1.5x the monthly rent and rent is payable in advance.

May 2012 Update: I obtained the information above about seven years ago. As I was passing the Weenee one day recently I decided to call in to see if anything had changed. There have been quite a lot of changes.

There has been a name change and instead of being primarily an apartment building the emphasis now seems to be on the short stay hotel business. Weenee Place is now officially known as 'The Weenee Boutique Resort Hatyai'.

My conjecture is that there weren't enough people in Hat Yai willing to pay very high prices for rented rooms. Thais used to gasp when I told them I paid Bt6,500 for my rented room. They expect to pay about Bt2,500 and consider anything above Bt4,000 as being very expensive.

Neither does Hat Yai attract the wealthy farangs who can be found in Bangkok, Phuket and Chiang Mai, etc. I doubt that English teachers earning Bt30,000 a month will be making many enquiries at The Weenee.

There are still rooms to rent by the month but there is now only one price: Bt23,000. I understand that all monthly rental rooms are on the third floor. To stay for one night will cost you Bt1,500.

The Weenee continues to be a very strange place. It is an attractive building and situated in a very quiet and peaceful location. If it was near the beach in Phuket it would be perfect for farangs but it's in the middle of a fairly unattractive town miles from the beach or anywhere scenic.

For people willing to spend Bt1,500 for a night in a hotel there are some other very comfortable places that are located right in the centre of the tourist area close to all the shops and restaurants. The Weenee is quiet and peaceful but its location isn't convenient for the tourist facilities.

When I first visited Weenee Place many years ago they gave me a web site address that didn't work. Their web site is now working but the pricing information on-line isn't the same as I was told at reception. This kind of thing is quite normal for provincial Thailand, as is the practice of having a web site and e-mail address but not responding to e-mails.

To get the latest information for any establishment in these pages, I would humbly suggest using the telephone or calling in personally if convenient.

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: If you want to stay right in the middle of the action there are a number of places that have rooms above the shops and traditional markets of downtown Hat Yai. The entrances are normally small doorways, which are quite difficult to find, and there will be stairs leading to the rooms above.

A lot of these places - such as the Park Hotel - are quite old, but this one only opened a few years ago. The cheapest rate is for a room in a dorm and the price is Bt250. There is a female-only dorm, but this is a little more expensive at Bt290. A private room will cost you Bt590.

Rooms have A/C, coffee and the ubiquitous Wi-Fi for backpackers to update their Facebook and Instagram accounts. I understand that A/C in the dormitories is only turned on overnight (from 6pm to 9am), but presumably most dormitory guests will be out and about during the daytime. The room rates include breakfast, but I wouldn't expect much more than toast and boiled rice for this price.

The hostel only gets a one star rating because of its basic facilities, but Agoda guests who have stayed here rate it as 'Excellent' with a satisfaction score of 8.2.

Comments: This is a small hotel with 46 rooms located a fair distance from central Hat Yai. It is adjacent to Yun Yong second-hand clothes market, but this market only opens a couple of times a week.

Apparently, the hotel has been there a long time but it was refurbished fairly recently. Thais seem to think that any small hotel can be referred to as a 'boutique hotel', so the owners have called it We World Boutique Hotel. When I looked up the definition of 'boutique hotel' I found the following: 'a small stylish hotel, typically one situated in a fashionable urban location.'

The hotel is small, but definitely not stylish and definitely not located in a fashionable urban location. The rooms are small. There is one 'suite', which has an additional area with a TV, however, it is also quite small. This larger room is almost twice as expensive as the other rooms and not worth the money, in my opinion. Normal rooms are Bt650 and the 'suite' is Bt1,200.

Breakfast isn't included in the room rate and costs Bt120 if you want to eat breakfast at the hotel. The hotel has a small car park if you drive yourself. On market days (Tuesday and Friday) car parking in this area is a nightmare.

Comments: According to tuk-tuk drivers and the sign in the front of the hotel, this used to be the Mair Naam hotel. According to a member of staff it used to be the Sakara hotel. I'm not sure who is right.

Anyway, whatever it used to be was closed down, the hotel renovated, and it is now the Wiangpin. The rooms aren't bad. It's cheap and it is located in an area of Hat Yai that is popular with single Chinese and Indian Malaysian male tourists - just behind the dilapidated Emperor hotel.

It's quite clear which sector of the tourism market this hotel has gone after ... and it's not eco-tourism, agri-tourism, or health-tourism.

On the second floor (it used to be behind the reception area) is a second branch of the Nice Lady bath and massage business with a goldfish bowl and viewing area where clients can have a beer while deciding on which girl to select. The girls have colour-coded numbers and depending whether they are red or blue you will need to fork out Bt1,700 or Bt1,400 for their services.

There is a constant stream of Chinese and Indian Malaysian men going into the hotel who walk straight past reception to the goldfish bowl and then disappear upstairs with one of the girls to one of the hotel rooms reserved for this purpose.

The Hawaii Sexy Show has relocated from its old location near Diana to the Wiangpin. I've never been but have been told by taxi drivers that it's a full on Patpong-style sex show. There are performances every evening from 8pm to 9pm and 9:30pm to 10:30pm. The old Hawaii now appears to be a gay club.

The economy in Hat Yai has been bad for a long time. First, it was southern insurgency problems, then political instability in Thailand, then a global recession.

Thais need money to survive and despite whatever problems there may be with the economy there are certain sectors of the economy that are never affected. We will always need to eat, and men will always need to have sex.

In this particular area of Hat Yai there are at least five cheap aap op nuat - bath and massage - places (a Thai euphemism for brothel) and they keep very busy. This newly opened one looks a lot cleaner than the other cheap places nearby, and prices aren't that expensive.

I wouldn't be surprised to see more such places opening soon.

Comments: A fairly new hotel very close to Diana Department store with very pleasant staff. Most hotels in Thailand have pleasant staff, but not all.

There are three types of room - standard, deluxe and family. The latter two categories have good sized rooms and bathtubs in the bathrooms. The sign at reception mentions 'dubble' rooms which presumably are the ones with two beds. All rooms have solid, rosewood furniture from China and some of the bathrooms have attractive glass sink units.

Wi-fi Internet is available in all rooms; a nice feature that is becoming common all over Thailand now. There is a restaurant, a bar that is described in their literature as either a 'Beer Place' or the 'Fountain Beer Park', and a massage shop.

Diana department store is just next door; handy for shopping and eating. Getting to the downtown area is about a 20 minute walk away or a short tuk-tuk ride.

Guest Comments:

  • As I said before, we stayed there, because we could not have rooms central Hatyai near Lee Garden. That hotel was very calm, but there is fountain next hotel. Youth came there during night. They brought bike. but if you will close window, that is fine. but hotel, itself, too old. There are many burnt marks on the carpet (I think cigarette caused it) toilet is old too.

    Sanitation, hm, let me see. I saw a cockroach and bedbug. Overally, I do not recomend this hotel to my friends. But Diana is next hotel and Pasar Malam (night market) is not far distance. It is a walking distance and bus terminal, too. If someone likes to go to night market or go to bus terminal early. This hotel will be ok. (July 2011)

Comments: Many Thais rent accommodation and thus there are many apartment buildings in Hat Yai offering long term lets. Many of these apartment businesses also offer rooms by the night, just like hotels. Some apartment buildings catering to the lower end of the market are very cheap, but they aren't at all pleasant. Some, on the other hand, are very comfortable and they make a good alternative to hotels. This one is a good example.

It is in an area I know well. It is next door to Terrace View Residence, where I lived for four years. When I was at Terrace View I actually had a view from my room, but now the only view from my old room is of Wisdom Residence. The monthly rent is exactly what I was paying at Terrace View - Bt6,500. This is a reasonable amount for most foreigners, but Thais think it is very expensive.

In Hat Yai terms the area in which it is located is quite upmarket. Just a few hundred yards away is the Bangkok Hat Yai hospital, which is the plushest (and most expensive) private hospital in Hat Yai.

From Wisdom Residence it is a fairly comfortable walk to both Big C Extra and the branch of Tesco Lotus in front of the Prince of Songkla University. Well, it is if you are a foreigner but most Thais would never walk this kind of distance.

If you just want to stay for a short time the nightly rate is Bt790 for a standard room or Bt990 for a superior room. The superior rooms are slightly larger.

It's not that close to the downtown area, but you can walk to Phetkasem Road where there are many sawng-thaews that will take you down to Gim Yong market for Bt10 and then you can walk into the central tourist area. If you have your own car, there is a car park in front of the building.

It is a nice place. I would much rather stay somewhere like this in Hat Yai than many of the hotels.

Comments: In my opinion this used to be one of the better budget hotels in Hat Yai. The location is fine, just a few minutes stroll to the centre of town and near to busy Suphasarnrangsan Road where there are lots of places to eat.

You used to be able to choose between rooms with A/C or fans, and the prices were really cheap. At the end of 2010 the hotel was subjected to a major refurbishment. This wasn't simply new carpets and curtains, but the hotel was completely gutted and refitted.

Everything was brand new, including the reception area. The rooms were given new furnishings, new bathrooms, new air-conditioners and new flat screen TVs. It looked good.

As you might have suspected, however, the prices went up - and they continue going up. After the refurbishment the room rate was Bt600, which still seemed quite reasonable.

One reader wrote to tell me he had been charged Bt1,500 over the Songkran festival, and then he told me that the normal rate was Bt1,000 and more expensive during festivals.

Here are the latest rates (November 2015):

Twin/Double room old wing: Bt1,000 (Bt1,500 during festivals)

Triple room (one large bed/one small bed) old wing: Bt1,300 (Bt2,000 during festivals)

Twin/Double room new wing: Bt1,300 (Bt1,800 during festivals)

Guest Comments:

  • I didn't stay there, the rate is now 1000 baht for one person, one night, and more when there is a festival. This was a weekday. (July 2012)
  • My stay here coincided with the first day of Songkhram celebrations, which pushed the rate up to 1500 baht. The main part of the hotel was sold out so I was put in the back section where work is still going on. The room was the exact same as the rooms in the front section of the hotel, and everything was is good working order. I was happy with it.

    To add to my happiness, I got a call from the front desk and was told that due to work going on where my room was that they were refunding me 600 baht for the night. That may be a first in all of Thailand. Further, when I left on my bicycle Songkran was going on very wetly right in front of the hotel. As I was on a bike and heading to the train station the staff was kind enough to have the people not splash me with water as I left, and they didn't.

    I left happy with both the facilities and the staff which too, may be a first in Thailand. (April 2012)

  • I was completely impressed with the Wung Noi Hotel and the front desk young lady, the friendly bell boy, and also the duty manager were typical cheerful locals, able to answer my questions.

    There is nothing whatsoever that I can complain about this old but now fully renovated old hotel .. almost nil except maybe an addition of a proper chair or a simple sofa set should complete the picture. The cable tv also included Malaysia's own TV 3 (not that I am interested to watch this crap channel) and Al-Jazeera, BBC, The ScF, Universal, Astro Supersports.. I counted about 60 channels.The bathroom was big, simple but practical minus a bathtub. The bed/s were soft, the lighting can go from bright to a soft shade as it depends,when I switched on all the switches, the deluxe room turned into a living room but it was very illuminated. I think this is a deluxe room as it contains a single big bed and a smaller single bed.

    I brought my own coffee maker so along with the balcony and curtains, I spent one of my most peaceful nights since 2005 in central Hat Yai as the area here is quiet. (March 2011)

  • I really liked this hotel. The staff is pleasant and the rooms are brand new, the television is good and there is wifi. The location is also excellent. However, renovations are still going on a floor above where I stayed and it was loud during the day, so loud that I had to move out after two days. I stayed here twice and once the wifi signal was strong in the room and the second time it was rather weak (second floor, end of the hall). The biggest problem with the room however was that they used cheap glass for the sliding door to the balcony and every bit of noise from the street comes right through. But for 600 baht a night once the renovations are finished I'll be back. (March 2011)

  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: These days I don't go to the area where this hotel is located very often. However, the last time I was there I noticed that the old Yee Fah had disappeared. Construction work was still taking place and there was a new building, but as yet I don't know what it is. If it turns out to be another hotel I will add it to these pages.

Update: The construction eventually turned into a new hotel. See S Hadyai Hotel.

Comments: Quite a big hotel (over 100 rooms) very centrally located next to the Siam Commercial Bank and bustling Suntisuk market with all its cheap electronics and pirated music, computer games and software.

There is an authorised money changer in the lobby, although changing money in Hat Yai is never a problem.

Update June 2018: I passed this hotel in June 2018 and noticed it was all closed with building work taking place inside. It is undergoing a major refurbishment and I was told it will open next year (2019), but I'm not sure when exactly. The room rates will probably be about double the old rates when it does reopen.

Comments: When I first moved to Hat Yai (and for many years after that) Hat Yai's tourist and business epicentre was Lee Gardens Plaza. That is where every retail shop and restaurant wanted to be, and thus where every tourist wanted to stay.

However, when Central Festival opened everything changed. Central Festival in Hat Yai is the largest shopping mall in southern Thailand and as well as shops there are also restaurants and entertainment venues. Tourists now want to be near Central Festival.

Of course, wherever there is demand there will be supply and since Central Festival opened a number of new hotels have opened nearby. Z Sleep Hotel is immediately next door and probably the closest hotel to Central Festival.

The hotel has 78 rooms in total. Standard rooms cost Bt890 or you can pay Bt990 for a deluxe room. There are also rooms suitable for three people and these go for Bt1,490.

Breakfast is not included in these room rates and breakfast costs an additional Bt100 per person.

As is always the case, you can normally get a better deal on-line. When booking hotels in Thailand for myself I always use Agoda and I always recommend Agoda to other people.

If you are looking for cheaper accommodation in the same area, there's a nice little guest house located just behind Z Sleep called the Hasu guesthouse. It's very pleasant and quite a lot cheaper.

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.
