As much as we all love broadening our horizons, traveling can get pretty expensive and we all have had that one hotel or restaurant bill that somehow became mysteriously inflated. However, in Hatyai, a haven for Thai street food, bargain shopping and a myriad of festivals, it’s easy to be immersed in this delightful culture, without spending major bucks. Although a popular destination in Southeast Asia, it’s still relatively unknown to the western world. Here, we’ve prepared a list of accommodations for you, all at or under 40 USD, for your next trip to gorgeous Hat Yai, Thailand!
A four-star hotel in the heart of Hat Yai, the Centara sets the bar high for service and hospitality. Expect to find a top-notch spa, massage, and sauna facilities to completely rejuvenate and relax both mind and body. You’ll also be able to choose from a wide variety of rooms to suit your individual needs and be assured that each has been impeccably designed and furnished. The outdoor pool and free parking only make the deal sweeter.
The Centara boasts an unbeatable location - only 200 meters (656.2 feet) from the famous Kim Yong Market and its surrounding night area! You’ll find getting around extremely convenient, and exploring downtown a breeze from this beautiful hotel.
This is a boutique hotel with a difference. The simple but tasteful decor of Klongrien stands out in its minimalist, bright rooms with smooth, pale hardwood floors. Large windows, letting in lots of natural light, add to the airy feel of each room, while furnishings are charmingly uncomplicated. Coupled with devastatingly comfortable beds, you’ll find waking up a delightful experience, every morning in Hat Yai.
Located further away from the city center, this hotel is a great choice if proximity to the airport is of utmost importance. You’ll find this place unpretentious and surrounded by nature, with an outdoor pool to boot. In addition to its scrumptious breakfast, the Nutchana also provides a free shuttle service to the airport- value for money indeed!

Although the rooms are basic, they’re more than adequate for a short stay, and its proximity to the bus terminal and fast Wi-Fi make up for any less-than-fancy furnishings.
