Located within walking distance from the pier, the night market and the town centre. Friendly and helpful staff. Beautifully decorated and impeccable hygiene. Quiet and pleasant. We loved the open-air bathroom :-D Laundry service, scooter rent, massage, bars, restaurants and tourist information - all within 100 m around.

We've been coming to Thailand for several years now and every year we spend some of our holidays in this wonderful place. In fact, knowing that this beautiful little oasis exists right in the heart of Krabi town is one of our reasons to return to Thailand so often... The guesthouse is very lovingly decorated, spotlessly clean, and all members...

This place is lovely! I love the design, the rooms are spotless, super clean, the receptionists are very nice and the breakfast is nice as well. I have stayed in a lot of hotels around Thailand during our 1 month holiday but so far Chan Cha Lay was my absolute favourite!!!

We spent 2 weeks around Thailand and this was the best hotel we came across, we paid £20 for a private room and bathroom for one night which is expensive for Thailand but a bargain in comparison to England and we loved it. It had a really nice european feel to it which was gave me a nice homely feeling...

We stayed at Chanchalay for 4 nights at the beginning of January. We have a private A/C room with an attached bathroom. The room was fresh, clean and spacious enough for all our belongings. The rooms are well priced for what you get and it had awesome outdoor shower with great pressure and hot water on demand. It's not a...

Having read a few of the most recent reviews of Chan Cha Lay I cannot understand why people are complaining. My boyfriend and I have travelled around Asia 3 times and this is by far the best place we have come across. We paid 550 for A/C with shared bathroom on our first stay. The room was so cute and...

This place is okay, although suffering a bit from "too popular for their own good" syndrome (being listed in guidebooks, etc.). It's rather expensive for mainland Thailand, but that seems to be the going rate for Krabi (all the places I came across when doing research for this trip were expensive for mainland Thailand). The rooms are attractive enough, the...

Cute hostel. Stayed in a "fan" room with bathroom. Very clean, proper sheets and towels. Good price/quality. Close by to market area of Krabi Town. 4th floor by stairs was a bit much having done Tiger Cave Temple the day before.

Everything went fine, the staff are great and the room super clean. I like the proximity of the day and night market. There's a 7 eleven and supermarket close. The fare was ok but it could be nice to have breakfest included for it, which was not super tasty but do the job. I will return for sure!
