"Good Medium Standard Hotel" Rachaphruk Grand Hotel Tip by tuktukwan

Rachaphruk Grand Hotel, Nakhon Ratchasima: 39 reviews and 1 photos

Although maintained to a good standard the hotels interiors are rather faded. Despite this the Rachaphruk Hotel does have many good points and these include its great location, not far (10-15 minutes walk) from Khorat?s huge shopping emporium ?The Mall? and 10 minutes walk to ?Big C? supermarket. The bus station is close by. The ?Night Bazaar? is about 1.5kms away but I thought that it was disappointing.
The staff at the Rachaphruk Hotel were very efficient and extremely friendly which was a very welcome feature of such a reasonably priced hotel (Superior Room B1200.00, Deluxe (Larger) room B1400.00 including breakfast and no + +). Haggle on the rate of course. All the staff that I came into contact with appeared to be genuinely conscientious and enjoying their work.
The hotel is very clean indeed and although a lot of the fixtures and fittings in the superior rooms are old and worn they are maintained well (everything works). The air conditioning works almost too well! Satellite TV reception is good and offers about 60 channels in a variety of different languages. The beds are comfortable but unusually low. The bathroom was exceedingly clean and stocked with all the usual necessities.
The inclusive breakfast served from 06.00 until 10.00 was not great. The ?orange juice? and egg mixture for omelettes, etc. appeared to be watered down and generally it was difficult to find something that looked appetising. There?s Chinese, Thai, Western and other hybrid offerings but nothing that looked very appealing.
If you want a reasonably priced, efficiently run hotel without many frills The Rachaphruk Grand Hotel is a good choice and I?d certainly stay there again although you may want to consider the Sima Thani if you plan to spend a significant amount of time in your hotel. It?s a little further away from the centre of town but not that far.

Unique Qualities: Great Location for shopping and sightseeing. Most rooms have good views over Khorat. Good facilities, well run, busy hotel.
