Pen ta hug Hotel เป็นตาฮัก

Sorry for the long delay between posts but ligament damage to my left shoulder has slowed me up considerably these last few weeks especially on the typing front. I am not as young as I once was and cliff jumping into waterfalls while exhilarating can also have painful consequences! Anyway – it will make for an interesting blog post very soon. In the mean time I need to catch up on my last few remaining posts from our time in Thailand.

Time for my last Ubon hotel review for a while. This time it is the Pen-ta-hug hotel (เป็นตาฮัก). My other Ubon hotel reviews can be found here.

I know the owner of this new hotel and he runs some other very successful businesses in the area so I was really looking forward to seeing how his first attempt at building and running a hotel from scratch was going for him.

First impressions of the place were good. Nice new building, good car park, clean lobby and friendly check in service.

A nice new building with a decent sized carpark out the front.

The lobby was spacious and had some interesting artwork to ponder while checking in and out. The small breakfast area is also located here.

Unfortunately it went down hill after that but mainly because of just one thing – the bed! I like firm beds and have slept on some pretty bad mattresses all over SE Asia but the one in room 214 was a doozy! Yes it was hard but also as flat as a pot holed road making sleep basically impossible. If there was a Thai Massage place on site I would have been their first customer the next morning. I was still sore 24 hours after checking out.

The bed from hell!

It wasn’t all bad though. The bathroom water pressure was nice and strong and hot. The wide selection of TV channels was welcomed. The place was very quiet.
Breakfast was included but the selection was very small (to be expected for such a small hotel) and the internet while not super fast was reliable.

The location is a little out of the way and I was glad to have my car with me.

The bathroom was clean and had good hot water.

The rest of the room was basic but practical.

At 800 baht I will not be staying here again. Much better sleep to be had at places like Phadaeng, Nartsiri, T3 and Pan House for a cheaper price.

  1. Hope the shoulder makes a full recovery soon. I can’t imagine you stopping cliff jumping into waterfalls and will probably still be at it when Isaac is old enough to follow your antics. Have a great weekend.
