Where to stay in Songkhla

Songkhla features fewer options that the area's more popular destinations. Few hotels offer online reservations or have official websites, so there's no way to know what's available until you arrive. Basic rooms typically include air conditioning and Wi-Fi, while the higher-end choices offer amenities like laundry service, bike rental, television, and hot water. Try to avoid hotels near public parks, where workout classes meet and often play loud music.
