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.

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.

I agree we stayed here in November 2013 and it is a great palce and the owner has a stunning Ducati Monster too! Its a bit hard to find but up a side street just 50 meters from the lake.

A good sized bathroom with hot water that gushes out!

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


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.

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

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

Yes good digs at this GH, stayed 2015. Stairs up to rooms very narrow tread, easy to take a spill if not careful.
Very convenient to lake and local bars/coffee shops like The Meeting Place.
Easy ride out to BBQ dinner near the temple of doom.....555.....and easy to get back from Hugs Live Music Bar. On the list for 2018

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.

View attachment 87785

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.

I am staying at the Gateway right now for a couple of nights. The room I have is newly renovated, on the 9th floor, view of Gwan Phayao, breakfast,and they let me park my bike underneath in the staff parking area. 750 thb a night.

I have used the gateway a few times over the last 17 years and it is really nice now, after the room refresh.
