We booked for 3 nights and stayed 6. I loved that many generations of the same family are around the house all day. Kids doing their homework, young people working the reception desk.
The staff were very helpful with booking tours and making recommendations based on what we wanted to see and do. They also gave us free advice on transfers and onward travel to other countries (visas, border crossings, etc). We booked two tours directly through these guys and each was high quality. They helped with postage, transport and were always on hand with a friendly smile.
The hotel itself is basic. We paid about 500 B per night for a twin room. The bathrooms are very simple (but had both western and Thai showerheads). I travelled with laptop, i-phone, MP3 player, kindle and a large SLR camera. No dramas with any of the gear.
The food onsite is amazine. Some of the best Thai food we had. The hotel is within walking distance (we do like to walk) of everything - the insect museum, sat and sunday night markets and the night bazaar. We walked to the night bazaar (obviously) at night and felt totally safe.
The hotel is far enough away from the hubbub of tourist areas that you get a decent night's sleep but it's only a 10 minute stroll to the sunday night marketplace and all of the tourist joints and restaurants.
Panda House was a great choice for us. It was simple, it was cheap, it was well located, we felt safe (as mother and daughter travelling together) and the staff were kind and patient.
