We stayed in this hotel for 5 days in feb 2014 and simply loved the experience. It is 10 minutes walk from the beach and 5 mins from the main market. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms dont provide you a beach view, but considering we spent all the days at the beach , wasnt much of an issue for us. Being vegetarians, we werr happy with the continental breakfast items included in the buffet which were cornflakes , toast butter jam, milk, fruits. Will definitely stay here again if we go to Ao Nang again.

We stayed here for 2 weeks from mid-December 2013 to early New Year 2014. We were very pleased with this hotel - it was very reasonable price-wise and the overall impression was very positive. To list a few - WiFi, decent breakfast, large room (we booked de-luxe on the top floor and I would always take this option if possible), staff very happy to please, great location near the main drag in Ao Nang, top restaurants just outside the front door!!!, motorcycle tuk-tuk very easy to get to other restaurants fairly cheaply. All-in-all a great 2 weeks in a fantastic part of Thailand.

Room Tip: Top floor (6th) if possible - woud not want to venture down in the lower regions!!

This hotel offers reasonable price with great services. We arrived early in the morning and understand that it's not the check-in time yet, but they staff are so friendly that they offered breakfast for us to settle down (this is because we will not be able to enjoy our breakfast for the last day due to the early hour of 1st flight out of the country).

The environment is very tranquil, no hassle and choas like the other hotels. The breakfast area has some view of the sea from far but that's ok for us. They serve continental English breakfast with some local menus (fried rice, squid, noodles) daily. I would like to give my compliment to the chef who prepared our half boiled eggs, it's perfectly done every single day!

The room is spacious. Some issue with the water supply during our stay (according to the local, Krabi's water supply is very inconsistent) but they have tried they best to solve the issue as soon as they could. Free complimentary waters daily, basic amenities, CRT TV with local channels (well, who bothers to watch TV during beach vacation), slippers for the swimming pools are all well prepared in the room. They share the swimming pool with the hotel next door but it's totally fine, 1.5m it's pretty deep for Asian. Toilet and bathroom are available besides the swimming pool, which again I didn't expect this great facilities for a 3 star hotel.

Ample motor parking space in from of the hotel. To be exact, the hotel is located directly opposite lay lae grill and The HillTop restaurant. Around 5-10 minutes walk to the main street. From Esan grill,turn into the junction and you'll reach the hotel in 3 minutes walk.

I will definitely return to this hotel again next time!

Room Tip: We have a lower ground floor, room facing the other hotel's room. If you want a seaview, please...

Anyone who says anything negative about this place is seriously needing to take a good look at themselves! Place is absolutely minted, room is massive, bed is monster size, dvd player, excellent shower, hot water, minibar, bathrobes, views of massive sandstone crags poking out of the ground, views of the andaman sea, the staff would literally do anything for you. Towels given out at the pool, buffet breakfast was fine, choice of thai or western grub, fruit salad, lad cooking eggs is so polite it's unreal. One of the reasons I love Thailand so much is the amazing people and this place lives up to that and much more. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Get on the top floor!!!

I do not recommend this hotel. After walking into my room I noticed an awful smell. I've stayed in many hotel rooms with odors, but this was impossible to ignore. I then walked to the bed and noticed a dead bed bug on the sheets. Additionally the water was dirty (brownish orange), even after letting it run for a while. When I picked up the phone to call reception the phone didn't work.

The hotel was fully booked, and they refused to move me to another location (the owner hung up on me when I simply explained the situation and asked to be moved). They later sent someone to my room to look at the issue. The man lit some incense, and simply brushed the dead bed bug on to the floor, then walked out. I'm sure he meant well, but this didn't solve the problem.

There are better hotels in the area for the same amount of money, I do not recommend staying here.
