Hotel Review – Sritrakarn Hotel Udon Thani

During my comeback to Udon Thani the past long weekend I tried another hotel and chose the Sritrakarn Hotel for my stay. Before we get into the in depth personal opinion let’s see the neutral rating:

Location: Awesome. Right next to the bus station and Central Plaza. Going out in UD Town at night? Shopping at Central during the day, taking a bus somewhere? Everything’s fine and easy to manage. Great spot!

Staff: Overall friendly and able to speak decent English. However with a negative touch in the end as you can read below.

Service: Normal. Nothing awesome, nothing super bad.

Rooms: SMALL! Open & incredibly stupid bathroom (see pictures), A/C, somehow cleaned but not very diligent. Fridge & TV. Soft bed, basic table & Chair, no closet, few cloth hangers.

Personal Review: I booked this place via agoda.com just to make sure I really got a room when arriving in the early morning. The stated price online was 340 THB per night. When I finally booked it (for two nights) however I had to pay 800 THB with 120 THB ‘service fee’ included. WTF Part 1.

When I then decided to stay a day longer in Udon I asked at the reception if I could extend the stay (just been to lazy to move somewhere else and had to take the bus back anyways) the guy at the reception looked at my file, said ‘ah, from agoda…’ and then charged me 400 THB (800 I paid devided by two days i stayed) while others stay for 340 – 380 THB / night. It’s not a huge difference but a shitty behavior nevertheless. This leads me to the point that I think they might try to make a deal out of everything they do. Hence I wouldn’t recommend staying here.
