In my attempt to review every middle to high class accommodation option in Ubon Ratchathani I recently found myself booking a stay at the Nartsiri Masion using Agoda. My other hotel reviews for Ubon can be found here.
I remember taking some photos at the time but for some reason seemed to have misplaced them so my apologies for this photograph free blog entry.
The taxi driver from the airport told me he knew the place but didn’t and took a bit of offence when I had to convince him he was going the wrong way and to follow my instructions. Eventually we made it and I was immediately struck by how clean it was. It had good under cover parking but be warned it can get very full late in the evenings and can be quite an effort getting out in the morning.
There is a little coffee shop that does the basics that is part of the property. (The breakfast soup was pretty good.)
The beds were very comfortable. The flat screen tv was nice but only one English channel which is a shame as all the other hotels in Ubon have the Australia network which is always welcome when the football is on! The staff were efficient and very flexible with booking and checking in/out etc. Not really any view to talk of and a small window meant there was not much natural light. The Air con was a little noisy but seemed to work well.
I think it was about 720 baht with Agoda and included a small plate of breakfast at the coffee shop but a week later I found myself back there again and paid 650 baht as a walk in rate with no breakfast. I had a quick look at their big room which might suit a small family. Basically it was two rooms together with the second room having the bed and bathroom removed and replaced with a small kitchen and lounge area. That was 1,500 baht a night.
Overall it is a nice place to stay and the location is not all that bad really but if I had to choice between the Nartsiri and other similar priced hotels I think I would end up back at T3 House, Phadaeng Mansion or Pan House.
