Korat is not really a very popular Thai tourist destination but the city does welcome a large number of business travelers every year and foreigners who are visiting the relatives of their wives or girlfriends. There is therefore an excellent selection of hotels from which visitors can choose.
Over the years I have stayed at many of the major accommodation providers in the city and I would like to share my knowledge and experience with you.
The Sima Thani is one of the leading properties in town and is located just past the Mall. It offers well over three hundred room and suites and has a number of excellent restaurants. This includes an all you can eat buffet restaurant which is very popular with local restaurants.
The Dusit Princess is one of the most luxurious hotels in Nakhon Ratchasima and it was recently complete renovated. It also offers a wide range of facilities including a wonderful swimming pool and a number of great food and beverage outlets.

This is one of the largest resorts in the area and is especially very popular with business travelers and convention and meeting organizers.

The Rachaphruk Grand is ideal for those of you that are looking for a hotel which is located in downtown Korat. It is located within walking distance of Big C and the IT Center. There is also an excellent club, Bar Nana, which is located in the basement of the building.
