    Not my regular place of stay in Phayao, the Phu Tong Place, because it & 2 other places were full on the night. (A concert in Phayao, unbeknown to us dumb farang.)
    Anyway for 500 baht not bad..(but I still prefer the Phu Tong)......

    Every place on the lakefront was full :-(

    Found a place called "Win Hotel". Seems like a boutique hotel. No fan rooms, only a/c rooms. They have small rooms for 290 Baht/night (single bed) and big rooms 350 Baht/night (double bed). I was given the last available room which was a small room. It was clean and seemed cute :) The front desk staff are not really friendly though.

    Small Room

    WinSmall2.

    WinSmall1.

    WinSmall4-1.

    I had a look at the Big Room the next day:

    I'll second Ian's opinion of the JumJai. (Though I didn't know that was it's name!) Stayed there twice now & they are indeed very friendly & helpful. The step up to the bike parking may look easy for those with two good legs - but for me, it looked like hard work. No problem, chap came straight out & did it for me. Same in the morning when we left. I think we paid 600 baht for a room (number 2) on ground floor. That was in December last year. They'll also reserve me a downstairs room to save me having to 'do' stairs. Even for myself, it is within walking distance of most things. Will certainly stay there again.

    My favourite place is the Phu Thong

    305521=22388-GTR-PhuTong-Phayao-01.

    spacious rooms. Aircon hot water TV.

    305521=22389-GTR-PhuTong-Phayao-02.

    305521=22390-GTR-PhuTong-Phayao-03.

    305521=22391-GTR-PhuTong-Phayao-04.

    305521=22392-GTR-PhuTong-Phayao-05.

    A good sized bathroom with hot water that gushes out!

    305521=22393-GTR-PhuTong-Phayao-06.

    Price: 500 baht

    Location: it is on the GTR Phayao city map.

    It's also got a view when the storms come in off the lake.

    305521=22394-DSC_8384.

    Now of note is the abundance of new homestay guesthouses down on the lake foreshore.
    Arunothai
    Buakaew, near Cup Cake
    Lerkdee, near BM Pub
    Hom Hug
    Cozy Nest
    Jumjai
    plus a few others downtown.
    If I was to try another one I'd be looking at Cozy Nest or Lerkdee.

    Cheers.
    Phayao seems to come of age for loads of good boutique accommodation.
    Spend a night in Phayao & you will be impressed with the value for money accommodation available.

    Arrived late in Phayao at 8PM, tried a couple of the lakeside hotels & was quoted 1500-1800 baht a night for two rooms. Not impressed. So opted for the Jumjai

    600 baht a night.

    Beautiful wood work through out

    They have under cover parking for motorbikes, but I found the bathroom a bit of a challenge.

    KM Hotel Phayao.

    Very nice rooms in a quite location with undercover parking and great staff.

    Rooms come with breakfast which consists of a few nice Thai dishes, and the western delicacy of toast and jam. They would cook you an egg if you wanted one.

    Only 5 years old and good value at 590 baht.

    Huge bathroom with water pressure that will blow your tattoos off.

    Rooms have a view over to the lake.

    stayed here last night, the bathroom in the 2 rooms we looked at were more than large enough.
    staff is quite friendly.
    600 baht for either room #2 on the ground floor (darker, quieter) or #10 on the 3rd/top floor with balcony and lots of windows.
