This hotel is located about 2km away from the bus terminal, but is only a 20 minute walk from the old town. However, the most important consideration is that there are 2 Amonruk Hotels situated diagonally from each other in the same street : Amonruk 1 which is a budget motel costing 400 Baht a night without breakfast; and Amonruk 2 which is a classy hotel with breakfast at prices ranging from 590 to 2000 Baht. I stayed in Room 210 at Amonruk 1 which only has a Thai sign written on a purple background. It is more or less opposite the ptt petrol station.
This hotel occupies 2 floors and is painted yellow with wooden room doors. There is a huge car park on the premises which is sufficient to accommodate all vehicles and the building is situated a little back from the road so
that traffic noise is minimised somewhat. Despite this, I found there was quite a lot of noise to be heard the first night made by other guests and nearby dogs
My room was on the second floor and was quite large with a fairly low double bed with a thin mattress and fairly hollow pillows. However, the main problem was that the bed was so rock hard that it was causing aches and pains in my lower back so that I was glad to get up again in the morning. The walls were painted a cream colour while the floors are tiled. The room came with two bedside tables, a long desk with shelves and drawers, a fridge, a large wardrobe with 3 clothes hangers, a TV with only Thai channels, pink curtains over the window which overlooks some trees and greenery, a telephone, a picture on the wall and a mirror above the desk. The aircon worked well, if noisily, but the WiFi had a tendency to cut out briefly.
The aircon was needed the first night to drown out the noise made by other guests and their TVs or other electronic gadgets.
The bathroom had tiled floors and walls, but did include a proper showering area. However, the bathroom door did not close as it was wider than the frame. 2 towels, toilet paper and some soap are provided. The water heater was Panasonic and worked very efficiently, but the water spray was disappointing.
All in all, the location of this motel is fine if you have your own vehicle and there is a huge car park to keep it. However, the bed was one of the most uncomfortable I have ever slept on, the noise levels were sometimes problematic and the bathroom door did it close. I would probably avoid this motel in future
