Where to stay in Phitsanulok

Since Phitsanulok holidays are not popular with tourists, the city offers little in the way of accommodations. Budget and mid-range hotels cluster around the city center and generally offer comfortable rooms and amenities. It's always a good idea to see the room before paying if you want to avoid cold showers and questionably clean beds. More upscale accommodations may offer access to onsite nightclubs and meal buffets, but do not expect five-star hotels while touring Phitsanulok.
