an old hotel situated near the lake

I last stayed here 18 years ago & it hasn’t changed much; but I like the “old world charm.”

The hot water is boiling & you do need to be careful

The staff must have been there for centuries & don’t seem terribly interested in you or friendly – if you want to stay, stay, if not never mind. :wtf: The place is a classic. They used to have a hot coffeeshop with singers, but no more; only a soapy massage remains.

But the “beauty” of the place for me is the ground level rooms, park your bike under the car port at the front by the lobby / entrance & walk 15 metres & you can be in your room. No steps or elevators to be lugging luggage up & down. :thumbup:

And located by the lake it is close to some good Thai Pub & Restaurants. :thumbup:

The room rate I paid 500 baht.

Fossicking around in Udon for a good deal, a couple of places I tried for walk in quoting the online price got quick rebuffs with a 250 baht increase.
No bargaining, so I walked out on both establishments & literally went next door to one for the right price.

Keto House

A small unique coffee shop - guesthouse. Quiet, secluded. 3 ? rooms only.
Plus a Keto coffee shop & restaurant - the new fashion.

Clean, compact quiet rooms.

Something different & worth a look in these covid-19 travel times.
