Sekhor will probably have places to stay too, if you are interested. Please remember mid april is the crazy (& sometimes dangerous) Songkran water festival around here. Be prepared to get wet!!!
I would check that price out, i was there the other day and the daily room rate quoted was 2.200 baht per night .
Be in Surin starting the 19th of March....Is the Orchid hotel still in good shape its been 10 months since i last stayed there.....anybody?????
For my (our) upcoming trip to Surin, we've booked a room at the Majestic Hotel (@busstation).
We're told the room rate is 1200 baht (standard room). Last september the rate was 1000 baht, which was already an increase, since it the room rate was 900 baht before that (and 800 baht when it opened in 2007/ 2008?). Ofcourse I'm aware price go up from time to time, but this one seems a bit too much..
Although the Majestic is a reasonable hotel and one of the best (if not the best) in Surin, I still think 1200 baht is too much. Breakfast is ok, but just that and the recent raise of the minimum wage can't account solely for the price increase.
I'm sure we will enjoy our stay there, but might conside one of the Majestics'closeby and just try to sneak in the pool of the Majestic (busstation)
As far as I know the Majestic is the best in Surin, and the 200 Baht a night price increase was due to the minimum wage increase effective Jan. 2013.
If you stay in either Majestic Hotel/ Twin or Apartments, you can use the pool at the Hotel BTW!The Majestic Twin -at the end of Soi Kola - is fine for a night or 2. 500baht, no breakfast or swimming pool, but up till 9am they provide free coffee and a cake!
The apartments opposite Corner Coffee look fine too at around 500bt.
