Hadyai Golden Crown Plaza Hotel: Near to Kim Yong Market

Lee Garden Hotel already fully booked during the weekend, so I booked this Hadyai Golden Crown Plaza Hotel for my family (all 6 of us). Its very near to Kim Yong Market and shopping malls in Hat Yai.

Our rooms facing the road, very nice views. Quite big room, big bed, big chair. I have no complaints regarding the service. There tv, a mini fridge, small kettle for making coffee and tea. Clean toilet. hmmm... seems okay to me :-)))

Picture 2 - a house hidden by so many hotels and buildings. I like the rooftop.
Picture 3 - A loving mother bathing her child..hmmm..

Cathay Guest House, Haadyai: Backpacker Guesthouse in Hatyai

Located in downtown Hatyai and near the Railway Station, it is a very cheap accommodation for an overnight stay or two.

It is run like a typical Chinese owned guesthouse for backpackers or tight budget locals.

Great place to meet other backpackers and read the travelogue written in common living room. Very basic accommodation for the price paid. All rooms with ceiling fan, toilet and shower.

As like other Guesthouses, they can arrange tours and transportation or provide tourist information.

Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel: Good location

Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel is a popular hotel in Hatyai. The reason being is the centrally location. There are 5 levels of shopping, restaurants and entertainment at the building. You can find McDonald's, Sizzler's Steakhouse, Fuji Japanese restaurants, Swenson's Ice-cream and etc here. There is also a cineplex showing thai and english movie. (Make sure the english movie is not dubbed in Thai language.)

If you like street food, there are plenty of choice within walking distance!

Parking lot is available if you are driving to Hatyai.

Sky Buffet on Level 33 gives you a bird's eye view of Hatyai while you enjoy your meal.

Pink Lady Hotel: Clean & Affordable Stay

Clean and tidy. For the price of 600 Baht per night, and no surcharge from the hotel rate itself, this is a very good accomodation, i believe.
But if you buy the voucher from the travel agents (such as Konsortium, less than 80m away), they might only qoute you for 560 Baht. I went in the peak season and some travel agents qouted me for 750 Baht.
Overall impression of this hotel to me is very clean. There's a TV, fridge, a/c, bath tub and the toilet floor is made up of marble. Far more better than what i think before going into the hotel. They even provide 2 bottles of 1L distrilled water each day.
But there is no view from the room's window as they face the Lee Garden Plaza. Maybe the other side of the building will have a better view.

Central location of the tourist spot. Beside the Lee Garden Plaza and opposite of Novetel Central. There's a sexy bar, Turkish/Thai ancient massage, and a relax club inside the hotel iteself.

None: General comments about accommodation in Hat Yai

Hat Yai has an abundance of accommodation because of frequent visitors from across the border. Options range from typical, cheap backpacker-type hostels all the way up to quite luxurious 5 star hotels. The ease of finding somewhere to stay (and how much you pay for a room) depends entirely on when you arrive. At weekends thousands of Chinese from Malaysia (and some from Singapore) roll into town. Consequently, finding a reasonably priced room on a Friday or Saturday night can be quite an ordeal but if you arrive on a Monday or Tuesday it will generally be easy. In addition to weekends, you need to be aware of holidays. It doesn't seem to matter what the holiday is for. Regardless whether it is a Christian, Muslim, Indian, Chinese or Thai celebration, the Chinese still arrive in town. I have been in Hat Yai during Chinese New Year and Hari Raya (a Muslim holiday to ceebrate the end of Ramadan) and the whole town goes crazy. This affects prices too. Room rates can go up by as much as 60% at busy times as the laws of supply and demand come into effect.

All hotels offer walk-in rates but it is sometimes cheaper to book via a local travel agent who will be able to give you a better rate. In some cases the travel agent may only be a few yards from the hotel so you pay them and then walk into the hotel with a voucher instead of paying the hotel directly.

I was interested to see how accurate Lonely Planet were in their assessment of Hat Yai accommodation so, in a bored moment, checked out some of their recommendations. In my travels to South-East Asia I have seen so many backpacker types who religiously follow their guidebooks as if anything not mentioned there cannot possibly be trusted. Of course, this is not true. The authors need to have some listings but the places they include are not always the best and staying somewhere where every other backpacker is headed for is not my idea of fun. Also, the information they give goes out of date quickly.

The one piece of information I am not going to provide is where I stay. I have found a great place that is modern, comfortable, convenient, friendly and very cheap. It is possible that I will want to return to Hat Yai. Creating tips here in VT not only makes the tips available to VT members but to the whole world and I don't want to come back here to find it fully booked. A selfish attitude? Yes, totally. Do I care? Absolutely not.

BP Grand Hotel, Hatyai: Another Hatyai Business Hotel

Quite a pleasant hotel in Hatyai. Popular with local business and Malaysian tourists.

A bit of walking to downtown shopping center of Hatyai.

Overall, great experience staying here.

The Regency Hotel - Hatyai: When stuck in Hat Yai....

Just in case anyone else accidently ends up stuck in this city, The Regancy is central, easy to find and not bad value at approximately 20 English quid per double ensuite room per night and they'll throw in breakfast as well.
Good for business trips or if you're simply fed up of roughing it - this Hotel has all the little luxuries that make it all worth while :)

Regancy Hotel: One hotel Two rates, you choose your budget

Two buildings hotel; one is the old premise and another is newer, with higher rate and luxury. I booked throught a website, that gave me better rate (usd 25), and only the time i step in the room, i just realise they gave me room in old building because of that rate. However the room was not too bad, well maintained, and it is deluxe room. Room services was good, no kettle available in the room, but hot water can be asked by a phone call. Staff speak very limited English and bit difficult to understand too. But they are quite friendly.

Hotel with no pool, snacks available inside the room (good prices too), TV with all Thai broadcast. Room with breadfast, but the food was SUCK! I only have my coffee there.

Various: Use a travel agency to book accommodation

This is the travel agent I have used for hotel and travel arrangements. They can give you a better deal on hotels than by going directly to the hotel.

Singapore Hotel: Singapore Hotel

Lonely Planet says that the Singapore Hotel is friendly and 'security-conscious'. Admittedly, the staff appear to be quite friendy. As far as 'security-conscious' is concerned, it doesn't seem to be any better or any worse in this respect than most other places. Lonely Planet's price guide is a bit out of date. Rooms with air-conditioning and hot water cost 450 Baht. Rooms with neither of these facilities cost 380 Baht.

Wang Noi Hotel: Wang Noi Hotel

LP's guide price of 370 Baht for A/C rooms and 220 Baht for rooms without A/C is out of date. Rooms with A/C, hot water and TV cost 450 Baht, with a fan and TV 320 Baht, or with no A/C, no hot water or TV 270 Baht. Their assessment that the hotel is in a relatively quiet part of town is correct.

Indra Hotel: Indra Hotel

Very Chinese and the kind of place I'd probably take one look at before heading the other way. Lonely Planet say that decent rooms with A/C, hot water and TV are available for 480 Baht. I was quoted 590 Baht but wouldn't stay here anyway.

Another upmarket hotel in Hat Yai that is very nice if your budget can allow it. The Lonely Planet guide prices are actually pretty close. Rooms in the new building go for 1398 Baht and in the old building are 898 Baht.

Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel: Lee Gardens Plaza Hotel

A large hotel above a busy shopping complex. Waiting for lifts to get up and down can take a while. Like other high-rise hotels the rooms escape the noise at street level and the views are quite good of ever-so-scenic Hat Yai.

I was given the following room rates:

Superior (Double/Twin) - 1,149 Baht
Junior Suite - 1,390 Baht
Superior Suite - 2,290
