Good Family Hotel, central for everything in H-Hin
Second time we've stayed here, and room was even better than the one we liked first time around.
Very positive experience, and although the hotel is a little dated, everywhere is clean, pleasant, and spacious. Also - A BIG thing for me - the plumbing is great and the showers are powerful.
As previously reported most places are easily walkable from this hotel - beach, Night Market, Station, Town Centre, night-life, hundreds of restaurants, bars etc in the old Town - and also (for those who love them!) McDonalds and Burger King.
Only some of the newer malls, and venues (like Vana Nava, Plearn Wan, Kai Klangwon Palace, Kao Takiab) require a short 100-200 Baht Taxi ride (haggling needed - but there's plenty of healthy competition, so not difficult to negotiate a reasonable fare).
Some of the best Italian restaurants we have found in all of Thailand are in Hua Hin, and the overall selection of eateries is staggering.
