Staff, price
Staying at Lai-Thai is a bit of a step back in time. Not sure the rooms have been updated since the 70s or 80s, BUT they are quite well kept and everything was in good working order (even the rotary phone!). I believe this is a family run operation and the staff were all friendly. The guests are a mixed bag, varying in all aspects from age to purpose/length of travel to mental stability. There are definitely some characters here. Overall, I equate Lai-Thai to walking into a Coen brothers film.

Great stay. Good location to markets, old city and night activities. Full of farang tourists. Old but eclectic rooms. Priced well.

The only attractive is the Pool

the Pool, the food, the location
It was only the pool attracted to me. The pool is nice. Other than that, everything was just average. The room was small and dark. Great value for money though. There was local tour counter service. I can't comment as I didn't join any. The food smelled very good; unfortunately, I didn't have chance to try. The location is quite good. It was just a few minutes to the airport by tuk-tuk. Stamps were available and the staff helped to post the post-cards. It was very nice!

Review of my time at Lai-Thai G/H

Location, friendly helpful staff, cleanliness
Nice pool, quaint wooden architecture, good location. (9 out of 10) Was not sure what to expect after reading some negative comments but I was really surprised how pleasant the guest house was for the price. The reception areas and swimming pool was very clean and tidy - so was the room and I found the reception staff very helpful and friendly. The building had a quaint old fashioned feel to it with wooden floorboards and the walls were made of a sort of bamboo matting. Everything worked (didn’t try the TV though), bed was OK and room cleaned and new towels every day. Location is just outside the old city wall (what’s left of it) by the moat and within easy reach of the night bazaar and other amenities (about 10 mins walk). I originally booked for two nights but extended to four and would certainly recommend Lai-Thai for backpackers or general visitors looking for quality accommodation at a reasonable price and with good facilities. Didn’t try the restaurant - so I could not give it a review score - as I prefer to wander around the street food vendors but many guests did eat there during my stay. Hotel will book tours and activities and can arrange airport transfer. Would have scored it 10 except that I like to brew my own tea to drink in the room but it seemed the woman in the kitchen appeared always to give me disapproving looks on every occasion that I helped myself to hot water from the nearby boiler!!!!
