The Park Nang Rong Hotel

Last visit: January 2011

The Park Hotel
The Park hotel in Nang Rong, Buriram province.

The Park Nang Rong is probably one of the best accommodation options in Nang Rong. Of course, that's not saying a lot, since there is very little to choose from, but The Park is quite a comfortable place to stay for a few nights while you take in the sights.

The relatively new hotel, opened in 2010, is located near the lake at the center of town. It's a very short walk from the bus station, although the road it's on was not paved when I visited. I had the 'pavilion room', which was a small A-frame room on its own. It would be too small for a couple, but it was comfortable for just me. The deluxe rooms are actually a bit larger.

The hotel does not have a proper restaurant, but it does have a small kitchen that can make a select menu of items and there are a number of restaurants nearby. The hotel can also arrange transportation for you to the nearby sights such as Phnom Rung and Muang Tam.

Hotel facilities include one restaurant, a mini-mart and spa.

Rooms feature air conditioning, refrigerator and flat-screen television (local channels).

Pluses: Quiet location, very friendly staff, free wi-fi Internet.

Minuses: No restaurant, few other facilities.
