“The Small hotel, not small at all”
Reviewed 24 June 2010

We read about this hotel from Airasia magazine and decided to stay there when we had confirmed our trip to Krabi. We booked for studio room for 2 nights which is also inclusive of breakfast. On arrival, we were warmly welcomed by the staff and they kindly guided us to our room. As soon as I opened our room's door, I was amazed by the room size as it was actually quite big and spacious. They had a nice rooftop swimming pool but the setback was the swimming pool was probably not routinely cleaned up as the pool water was quite dirty. The breakfast provided were really nice and with variety, but there was no enough seats for the hotel guests during full house. Another good point was the hotel provide free wi-fi access to all their in house guests, but the service maybe interrupted on and off. Generally, this hotel is conveniently located with good service and spacious contemporarily designed rooms.

Stayed June 2010, travelled as a couple

Four star hotel but would probably be a 3 star modern hotel in Europe
Studio room large and well decorated great bathroom flat screen tv
minibar with free drinking water ac system not that great as quite noisy and takes long time to cool the room
Staff friendly and speak reasonable English
Mostly western guests but also a few Thais
We booked last minute using agoda.com for three nights including new years eve think we got about 60% discount over rack rate for a studio
Very well located in the middle of the two parts of ao nang - everywhere is within walking distance
Great view from roof terrace/pool
Modern boutique style hotel maybe 30 rooms
Lacks attention to detail - common problem in Thailand - eg. Room not well cleaned , forgot to replace glasses, filter system on roof pool
broken whilst we were there, never any towels in pool area
Good breakfast - Thai dishes cereals fruit toast coffee eggs available fruit juice
Free wifi that works well in lobby but barely in room
computer and tv area
Ground floor pool only really useful for those who have rooms on ground floor and have direct access to pool from their balconies
Access to pool of sister resort across the road
Overall we really enjoyed our stay as we were coming from a cabin in the jungle before!
