Comments: As I write (June 2016), this hotel has just opened. Parts of it aren't finished yet, such as the swimming pool and fitness room, but it is very attractive. There are just 19 rooms. Most rooms are in small individual bungalow-style buildings, as opposed to all of the rooms being in one large building, as is the case with most hotels. These rooms cost Bt1,300 or Bt1,500 - the more expensive rooms being slightly larger.

There are six cheaper rooms, priced at Bt1,100, which are located in a single two-storey building. Breakfast is included in the room rate and the in-house restaurant is open all day for breakfast, lunch and dinner. As I mentioned above, there will be a swimming pool and fitness room but these facilities aren't ready at the time of writing.

The only thing that perplexes me about this new hotel is its location. It is located on the main airport road, but it isn't that near to the airport. In fact, it isn't near to anything. Sawng-thaews do go along the airport road, but really you need a car if you stay here.

Despite being on the airport road, which is very busy, the rooms are fairly quiet and it was very pleasant as I looked around to hear birds twittering in the background.

The rooms are a good size and very pleasant, as are the bathrooms. There is plenty of space, everything is brand new, the natural environment feels good, and the individual rooms are very quiet because there are no adjoining rooms.

There is a lot to be recommended about this new accommodation option in Hat Yai, but the isolated location will be a problem for some people. For others, it may be perfect.

Map: Map 3
Telephone: +66 (0)74 239543-4
Room Rate: Bt680, Bt800

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: When I first came to Hat Yai in 2003, Ocean was quite a busy department store. There were lots of clothes shops and upstairs there was a big Internet shop. Before the days of Wi-Fi and widespread broadband, most people went to an Internet shop to check their e-mail.

Changes in technology forced the Internet shop to close and, for different reasons, a lot of the other shops closed too. After that it turned into a kind of amulet emporium. The clothes shops turned into amulet shops but, after a while, the same thing happened. All the amulet shops closed.

These days, there are still a few clothes shops but the main business seems to be renting rooms.

The location is very central. Ocean Shopping Town & Residence is located directly opposite the Diamond Plaza Hotel and it is just a short walk from Lee Gardens Plaza and Gim Yong market.

The Bt680 rooms have no windows. This would not be an option for me because I feel very claustrophobic in rooms without windows, but other people won't mind. If you want a room with a window you have to pay Bt800.

Latitude: N 07° 00' 52.4" (N 07° 00.873')

Longitude: E 100° 29' 22.6" (E 100° 29.377')

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: During 2005 and 2006 a lot of apartment buildings sprung up in Hat Yai and this is one of the latest (August 2006). It is located in a area where lots of development has taken place in recent years. It's a 10 minute walk from Phetkasem Road where there are plenty of transport options and it isn't too far from Carrefour.

The building has 24 hour security and a key card system. All rooms are the same size (adequate but definitely not cavernous). Those on the lower floors have air-conditioning while those on the upper floors have fans. The charge for water is fixed at Bt100 per month up to a maximum of 10 units and extra units after that are charged at Bt10.

The electricity charge is fixed at Bt100 per month for 0 to 10 units and extra units after that are charged at Bt6. Free cable TV is provided but televisions are not supplied. Wi-Fi Internet is available for Bt300 per month.

The apartment is in an area that is rapidly being developed. A few years ago it was a little dodgy, but now it looks fine.

The location and room rates mean that this place is aimed at Thais. Don't expect anything to be written in English or to have any staff who speak English. If they do, it's a bonus. If you want to live cheaply, the same as the Thais, you really need to be able to speak some Thai.

Comments: In recent years many Hat Yai hotels have been refurbished. They become more comfortable but, of course, prices go up. The old hotels are a bit tatty, but they are cheap, and this used to be the case with the Pacific Hotel where you used to be able to get a room with a fan for Bt400.

However, owners of old hotels get jealous of the higher room rate other hotels can charge and then renovate their hotels. This is what happened to the Pacific Hotel in 2016.

It is now called the Pacific Residence (which sounds more upmarket) and renovated rooms cost Bt700 per night. Some of the rooms haven't been renovated yet and these cost Bt550.

The old Pacific Hotel had a dining room, snooker club and in-house massage shop on the 2nd floor. I think these facilities are still there.

It is located directly opposite the Red Planet Hotel and it is a short walk to the central tourist area around Lee Gardens Plaza.

Comments: The word 'Resort' is a Thai euphemism and it is often used by places that rent out rooms by the hour. Sure enough, the room I was shown at Palm Chalet Resort was only available for three hours at a time. It doesn't take much imagination to figure out why people rent out rooms by the hour. There are other rooms that can be booked overnight.

It looks OK from the outside and as you walk in there is a kind of tropical rainforest effect. The location is a long way from the central tourist district and there is very little of interest in this area.

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: Most of the hotel rooms in Hat Yai's downtown area look almost identical. However, I occasionally come across something that is very different and this is one such example.

For starters, it's not in the downtown area. It's on Highway 4 heading west out of Hat Yai and this is the road you need to take if you want to visit Tone Nga Chang Waterfall, Tone Plew Waterfall, or Hat Yai Resort and Golf Club.

As you head west out of ugly Hat Yai it actually starts to get very scenic and if you then turn on to Highway 406 it will take you down into pretty Satun province.

The first benefit of this resort, therefore, is that it is close to some very pretty countryside and waterfalls. The resort has a restaurant that is open from 10am to 9pm. The room charge doesn't include breakfast, but I was told that breakfast can be ordered if required.

This place won't suit many of the weekend tourists who come to Hat Yai for eating, shopping and massage, etc. There is no nighlife in the immediate vicinity and no shopping. I was told that the owners plan to open a massage shop, but this hasn't happened yet. Apparently, there are massage shops nearby if your joints are really aching.

If staying here you will ideally need some transport. Sawng-thaews do operate along this road, but to use them you should have some local knowledge as well as the ability to speak and read a little Thai.

The buildings are very rustic and made almost entirely from wood with traditional style bathrooms. I imagine that some people will love this sort of thing, while others may not be so keen. I went during the daytime and was quickly bitten by mosquitos - I expect that there are lots of mosquitos after dusk. I also saw some huge spiders, evidence of termites, and no doubt there is plenty of other Thai wildlife living at the resort.

The accommodation consists of 15 individual bungalows and there is lots of car parking. Several of the bungalows have a car parking space right in front. The bungalows are equipped with all mod cons, including TVs, A/C, fridges, hot showers, etc. The staff that answered my many questions were all friendly and helpful.

To summarise, it will be perfect for some people visiting Hat Yai but not for others. If you want a quiet stay in rural Thailand near to some scenic areas it will be perfect. If you visit Hat Yai for shopping, eating, massage or other sensory pleasures it won't be so perfect.

Longitude: E 100° 28' 11.5" (E 100° 28.191')

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: The Park Hotel reminds me very much of the Cathay Guesthouse. It's in a very similar kind of building and the rooms are above shops. Actually, they're above an indoor market which sells CDs, DVDs, software, cheap watches, etc.

The lady on reception was a real sweetheart. Quite a few hotel receptionists I have met in Thailand have had really bad attitudes but she was a lovely lady.

I returned in February 2015 to check room rates. The room rate had been increased to Bt600, and rooms were actually going for Bt800 over Chinese New Year. Nothing was said about cheaper rooms with fans, which I was told about previously.

As is the case everywhere in Thailand, if you show up at a busy period during a holiday or festival, expect to pay more. Conversely, if you turn up at a quiet time and have good bargaining skills, you may be able to negotiate a cheaper rate.

I'll just sum up by saying that it wouldn't be my first (or second, or third) choice, but it might suit someone else.

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: Pathomtip is another option for longer stays in Hat Yai. It was completed towards the end of 2004.

It's a fairly large building with lots of rooms. The rooms have A/C units but no fridge although a fridge can be bought fairly cheaply if required. A TV with cable service is optional at a higher room rate. Broadband Internet access is available for a small monthly charge.

The electricity charge is Bt5 per unit, which is cheaper than the Bt6 that most places charge. Water is Bt12 per unit but you will probably use no more than three of four units a month so it is almost insignificant.

Guest Comments:

  • A friend of mine stays there every winter for four months, and he is very satisfied with the location, the price and the service provided by the management. There is a change: Today this mansion only offers long stays for one month or more. (2006 - 2013)

Latitude: N 07° 00' 40.8" (N 07° 00.680')

Longitude: E 100° 27' 28.8" (E 100° 27.480')

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: This new hotel, opened in February 2013, should not be confused with the BP Grand Suite or BP Grand Tower hotels. These hotels are in the centre of Hat Yai and have nothing to do with this one.

Also, do not confuse this one with the PB Resort, which is located just behind the PB Grand Hotel. Places in Hat Yai referred to as 'resorts' are normally little love motels that are rented by the hour for illicit liaisons.

The location is near the Hat Yai Paradise Hotel and the PTT petrol station on Raj Uthit Road.

The hotel has 74 rooms. Most rooms (68) have one double bed, but six rooms have twin single beds. There is free Wi-Fi and car parking spaces. When I visited, a restaurant was being built where they will serve breakfast. At the moment there is no breakfast service.

The hotel looks fine and the prices are very reasonable, but it is located in a strange place. Malaysian and Singaporean tourists normally want to be very close to Lee Gardens Plaza and the centre of town. This hotel isn't anywhere near Lee Gardens Plaza or the centre of town. There isn't much nearby at all. For nearby evening entertainment there is only the Hansa Plaza Entertainment Centre, but the entertainment on offer there is a little one-dimensional.

If location doesn't worry you, the hotel looks fine. However, I do have a warning.

The area it is located in is known as Kate 8 and this area has major flooding problems. I speak from personal experience. I used to rent a house in this area and suffered a two metre flood in the big flood of 2010. This area flooded in 2005 when other areas of Hat Yai were unaffected.

The ground floor of the hotel is quite high and it should be safe inside the hotel if there is a flood. However, if there is a flood and you parked your car in the car park it will be completely submerged. You may also not be able to get out of the hotel for several days until the water recedes.

The period of the year when there is most risk of flooding in Hat Yai is from about the end of October to the beginning of January.

There is still a lot of work to be done in Hat Yai to reduce the risk of flooding and until that work is done there is still a very real risk of major flooding during the rainy season if a big storm arrives and stays around for a few days.

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:

  • This is a rather pleasant hotel at which to stay for a few days - in terms of the rooms themselves (rather than the staff). The rooms are bright and clean, with nice cheery colours and interesting interior design. The partition which separates the bedroom from the toilet/shower room is a kind of frosted transparent glass (or similar) - and the effect is to make lights in the room look expanded and brighter, in a pleasant manner.

    The only bad thing I experienced during my stay there was the general unfriendliness of the reception-desk staff: for example, they did not smile once or make me or my Thai partner feel welcome at any time. When my partner and I checked out and I smiled and thanked them, they did not even deign to give me a glance, let alone a smile (unusual for Thailand). I said to my Thai boyfriend that it is little things such as this that help give a hotel a bad (or conversely, good) reputation.

    Apart from this, I did enjoy my stay at the PB Grand and would give the hotel three out of five stars. If you are looking for courteous and friendly staff, however - look elsewhere! (April 2013)

Comments: When I first saw this place in July 2010 it hadn't been open for very long. It opened either in 2009 or 2010.

Pearl Place bills itself as a hotel, but two floors are given over to rooms that can be rented by the month. The location is a little way out of town - just behind Big C Extra (formerly Carrefour). Access into central Hat Yai is easy enough, with lots of transport options nearby on busy Phetkasem Road, but the location won't suit everyone.

There is one bigger room on each floor. The rooms for rent by the day are furnished very pleasantly, however, the rooms to rent by the month aren't quite as luxurious. As with the vast majority of hotels these days, free Wi-Fi is offered.

It's a pleasant, comfortable-looking place if you don't mind the location. When I returned in June 2016 to check prices, I found that the room rates had actually gone down.

Guest Comments:

  • is a quite old hotel, when check in the staff said got FREE wifi provided, but when wanna use it, found that it can't access, after seeking for the solution, just to be inform that actually is need to pay for it..

    there will no hot shower in the early morning..if i din't mistaken, the hot shower servises just available after 730am..

    there will be some extra charges when you check out, such as your towel was found dirty, the hotel will charges you 200 baht...

    when i stayed there, the air-corn of the room 1128 can't function well in the midnight, i when to the counter complain in the early morning when i do the check out, but the staff dint accept my complain and blame me dint make the when notice the air-corn cant function well..

    i think this is quite unfriendly and can said quite rude of the attitude of the staff...i DUN LIKE this hotel and hope that wont have other people facing this problem again, that's why i wish to share my experience through this website...

    as the conclusion, i dun think this is a better choice for you to overnight in Hatyai.. (August 2011)

  • I stayed here for 2 night. It was a typical Thai hotel from the 60's/70's. The room was kind of worn out and everything just looked old. The location is wonderful however, and the 100 baht discount at the Turkish bath was well worth it. I stayed here in part as I was told there was wifi but what I wasn't told was that it was the TOT wifi which you paid 100 baht for 100 minutes for. I think I paid 600/650 a night without breakfast. (March 2011)
  • I stayed here just for one night before taking my evening bus back to Kuala Lumpur and it was indeed a pleasant surprise to find a big spacious room for 550 bht from the tour agent which I used next to the Grand Plaza Hotel. The lights are a bit too bright for me though and the big double bed is also just near the door which is a bit unsettling for me as I can hear the going on outside in the corridor. The rate also entitiles one to a discount at the Pink Massage which I did not use and the receptionist was friendly and the lobby was clean although devoid of any air-conditioning. The bathroom was big and contains all the needs a weary traveler requires. There is no view from my room on the 5th floor as it faces the back of another hotel.An old hotel but for this price, I have no complaints. (November 2010)

Map: Map 2
Telephone: +66 (0)74 223410-1
Room Rate: Bt250 to Bt600 per three hours

Latitude: N 07° 00' 26.0" (N 07° 00.434')

Longitude: E 100° 29' 00.9" (E 100° 29.015')

Google Maps: Street Map or Satellite View

Comments: This is another 'resort' designed for very short stays of a couple of hours or so.

There are two classes of room, referred to as standard and VIP. Prices vary depending on the time of day. During the daytime, standard rooms are Bt250 and VIP rooms Bt300 for a three hour rental. At peak hours in the evening the prices go up to Bt500 and Bt600 respectively. It's open 24 hours.

Each unit is basically a small apartment with a bedroom and bathroom. The VIP rooms have circular beds instead of regular ones and that was the only difference I noticed. You get clean towels and sheets for your money. The mirrors on the ceiling above the bed come free.

What is a little unusual is that sex establishments in Hat Yai are usually geared up for visiting foreign sex tourists but this place is definitely intended for Thais. The staff only speak Thai and all the signs are in Thai.

Apart from the gaudy colour scheme, it has been designed to be discreet. The location is well off the beaten track, away from main roads and prying eyes. Each unit has a car parking space outside and a portable screen to hide the car once it has been parked.

I would guess it is used by married Thai men with mia nois or by men who live with their families who do not have a place of their own to be alone in. It's quite near to the Acoustic Pub if you are interested. I'm sure all the tuk-tuk drivers will know it.

Comments: PM Residence opened some time in 2015. It's located in quite a busy area near Hat Yai bus station, but the road it is on isn't that busy. It's a short walk to the bus station, and actually you can walk to Central Festival fairly easily.

There are 38 comfortable rooms and the reception staff are very pleasant. The basics are provided and even though this small hotel doesn't have the same kind of facilities as large hotels it does have a swimming pool.

If you are interested in a longer stay, rooms can also be rented by the month. The rooms for rent by the month are a little more spacious than the rooms for rent by the day. The monthly rate of Bt5,500 isn't the cheapest in Hat Yai, but because this is a nice place it is quite good value.

Comments: The location of P Residence is good because it is quite close to the centre of town and it sits at the end of a cul-de-sac, therefore there is no noisy through traffic.

However, the way that it is hidden away also makes it a little difficult to find. If your taxi driver can't find it, just tell him to go to The Bed Hat Yai. P Residence is located at the end of the little soi next to The Bed, just a few yards away.

It's fairly new and looks like a decent place. I think there are 15 rooms, but the receptionist didn't seem sure.

In addition to my difficulties finding P Residence, there was also some confusion about the name. There was a sign outside that said 'A-Center Mansion' and the website also refers to A-Center Mansion.

The receptionist told me that the old name was A-Center Mansion, but the new name is P Residence.

Comments: The President Hotel is a fair distance from the centre of town located adjacent to the fountain on Phetkasem Road. There is abundant and frequent public transport along Phetkasem but the distance from Lee Gardens Plaza means that it is not generally favoured by Malaysian tourists.

There aren't many in-house facilities compared to downtown hotels. The rooms are fine for the money, and the staff are pleasant and courteous. The location is handy for the fresh market and also for getting sawng-thaews to Carrefour, Songkhla, Ko Yo or the Municipal Park.

Guest Comments:

  • Perhaps a luxury class hotel about 20 odd years ago but now sinking into quite a depressing dump, not helped by the stale smell of floodwater in it's rooms as this place was badly hit by the big flood last November.I wanted a place near to the Plaza in order to catch the cheap 20 bht songteow to the airport for my flight to bangkok but actually, it is quite comfortable, even the room that i was put in faced the busy fountain circle but the noise level was kept to a minimum, very popular with muslims from the south and the odd Malaysians buying things at the market as a mosque is nearby, lots of food stalls selling halal food just around the hotel and the busy market is actually alive 24 hours a day, I enjoyed a glass of hot milo and a plate of patengkoh all under 10 baht.I do hope the management will do some renovations to the rooms here as I find it just away from Central Hat Yai which I do not like these days.Recommended if you can put up with the Non- Wifi signals in the rooms..and just love to hop on the 10 baht rides to Carrefour or Tesco Lotus..cheap..

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.
