    Posted: 07 Jul 12 at 03:05
Hello members, I am looking a nice clean secure central hotel in Khon Kaen city.  It would be good if it has a gym.  I am doing quite a bit of travelling during this trip, so it would be good if the hotel was no more than 1500 baht per night.  Is this possible on Khon Kaen City?

Hi Irish

The Charoen Thani is very central, not too far from Central Plaza, it has a gym and you can get a discounted room price, at the link below, for about 1,500 baht.

There are plenty of other places cheaper too, but will probably not have a gym or pool.
I have always booked my hotels from the website above and never had any problems.

Thanks for the replies.  I booked the Kosa Hotel via booking.com and I got 4 nights for 5000 baht.  I have free cancellation until August 13th.  So please tell me if I have made the correct decision or not.  I did notice after I had booked that there is a charge for the internet.  Does anyone know what the current charges are?  I require internet connection for a couple of hours each day.  Is there any establishments close by that offer free wifi for customers?  I do not mind having a few cold beers in return for the wifi :-)

Thank you.

You can go across the road from the Kosa and get free wifi in the large building that is called TukCom.
Go to the top floor and go to the cheap restaurant and buy a coke.

I think Eric Bar down the street (toward the Pullman, and across from the 7-Eleven) has WiFi. The new Coffee House/Restaurant a few doors down from Eric may have too.
Kuthong House Restaurant has WiFi. (look here for a description and map:) http://www.khonkaen.com/english/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=5166&PN=2&title=all-day-bacon-eggs-breakfast-at-khotung-house
 
Should be no problem for you to find various places in the area to get WiFi and a brewski or meal, and sit down, plug in and surf a while.

The Mai Thai Guesthouse isn't exactly "central", but consider checking it out. 5,000 baht at the Kosa and you have to pay extra for wifi...ridiculous. The Orchid is another good option...200 meters from Central Plaza mall. Both places are about 1/2 the cost of the Kosa and free wifi.

Not sure that the Mai Tai has a gym as requested by the op Scott.

He would be better off in the Kosa,Glacier or Charoen Thani IMO

Good point, TS. Pool yes, gym no.
