Lampang Wiengtong Hotel
Not surprisingly, Lampang's largest hotel also boasts some of the largest rooms we've seen anywhere. The budget rooms, on the other hand, are cramped and have the tiniest bathtubs we've seen outside of Tokyo.
If you're going upscale, this is Lampang's best choice. The lobby is tastefully decorated in a teak and northern Thai temple theme, a design that continues into the rooms.
Hotel Kim City
You’ll probably be led to the ground-floor cheapies, but do yourself a favour and request a room upstairs to avoid the mustiness. Small groups travelling on a budget will be happy to find an abundance of huge triple rooms.
Lampang Wiengthong Hotel
Tipchang Lampang Hotel
Large and imposing from the outside, but in need of an update of its ‘vintage’ 1970s-style rooms. A pool and the view from the top floors justify a stay at this wannabe top ender.
Asia Lampang Hotel
The cheaper rooms on the ground floor are starkly plain and a bit dark, but for a tiny bit more go up a couple of floors where the wood-panelled rooms represent decent value.
Riverside Guest House
Although still within budget range, this leafy compound of refurbished wooden houses is one of the most pleasant places to stay in Lampang.
Ton Nam Guest House
This old wooden house unites four cosy rooms, all with air-con and private bathroom.
Although they are significantly in need of a dose of character, the rooms here are clean, comfortable and have TV.
Spotless, spacious and secluded, the vast rooms here come decked out with cable TV, minibar and large bathrooms, but not a lot of character. A travel agent is attached who books domestic and international flights. A solid midrange choice.
R Lampang Guest House
Cute is the underlying aesthetic at this compound by the Mae Nam Wang. Wind through brightly coloured halls decked with teddy bears to emerge at spacious air-con rooms and rather tight fan-cooled, shared-bathroom budget rooms.
Tip Inn Guest House
Tip Inn unites four fan-cooled, shared-bathroom rooms in a 100-year old house and two air-con rooms in a newer structure out back. An attractive communal garden area and palpable old-school vibe are the unifying factors.
Tt&T Back Packers Guesthouse
This longstanding place has an appropriately old-school backpacker vibe. Bathrooms are shared, but this is made up for by the riverfront location and expansive chill-out areas downstairs.
The tagline here ought to be 'Midrange amenities at a budget price'. The large cool rooms are located in a tidy residential compound and all have TV, fridge and a garden/balcony.
