“Best Guesthouse in Krabi”
Reviewed 16 August 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for 5 nights in a King Balcony room. We are so happy we found this place as it is excellent. Very deserving of all the rave reviews.

I believe what makes Aonang Haven so wonderful is the staff. Andy & his team go out of their way to help you with anything you may need. Prior to our arrival, I was in contact with Andy regarding a few things (airport pick up, change of dates etc) & responses were always prompt. We also loved Vanilla, the sweetest little dog who is always happy to greet you when you walk in the door.

The rooms are clean & sleek with everything you could possibly need (including little things like a bottle opener). Comfy bed & TV with heaps of channels. Loved that you could help yourself to complimentary tea & coffee too as
often as you like.

We loved Aonang Haven & will happily recommend it to all our family & friends.

Tip: if you are flying into Krabi airport, ask Andy to arrange your pickup. It is the same price as if you got a taxi on arrival but you have someone there waiting for you (no queues). And there is no confusion about what hotel you are staying at. An excellent service I think!

Thank you for the review. We are really glad that your family of three enjoyed the stay with us. It's a pity that a storm had blow in when you were here so you were not able to enjoy Ao Nang at its best. If ever the opportunity arise for a second visit, do know that you will be most welcome to stay with us again.

Rooms:
Stayed in the King room for 3 nights and Queen room for 1 night.
Rooms were spic and span, with clean sheets, clean en-suite bathrooms, comfortable beds and pillows. Key difference for me was that King room has a mini balcony while the Queen room has no balcony or windows, but still comfortable regardless.

All rooms have their own A/C, so you can set temperatures you're comfortable with, as opposed to those darned centralised air-conditioning at some places.

Since the King room has a balcony, you can hear the traffic fairly clear, but generally things quieten down after 1am, so I had no issues with interrupted sleep even though I'm a light sleeper.

Proximity:
Being located nearer to one end of the tourist stretch has its perks - you can stroll down the full stretch of shops and restaurants before hitting the beach. Has a 7-11 and clinic just across the road, and 5 minutes away from McDonald's for travellers who may not be comfortable with street food (which really is good actually).

Smiling dog cafe just a minute away serves decent crepes and coffee, and is a good place to just sit around and chill too.

A couple of pubs nearby, but nothing rowdy during my 4 nights stay there.
Management:
Staff at the Guesthouse are friendly and helpful without being overbearing or overly-zealous to make you feel like someone's on your back all the time. Aonang Haven takes its guests' safety seriously, so doors are locked at midnight.

Doors open at 730am in the mornings, so if you need to head out early for a tour like we did, or to leave for the airport, just inform them the day before and they'll have someone waiting to open the doors for you.

Generally-speaking, great value-for-money and a place that I'll definitely return to during my next visit to Krabi.

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights here in their King 2 - with a balcony facing the street. The room is clean, the bathroom is decent, the shower is great, the bed is very comfortable, the overall design is modern and very pleasant. We were greeted by their lovely PR officer, a spitz called Vanilla! The guesthouse is quiet, very near to all eating place in aonang. Only 10 minutes walk to longtail boat ticket counter and the beach. 5 minutes walk to McD. The best of all, the hotel has its own massage place with a very decent massage, albeit a bit pricey compared to all the other massage places around. But the massage is good. After an all day bumpy trip to the islands, it's very nice to come back to your own room, shower, go down for a massage and back to your room to sleep the night away. The owner, Andy, gives good tips on places to go for local food and local tour. We had a beautiful beef noodle on his tips. Real awesome beef noodle!! Can't tell you the name of the shop since its in Thai letter. We are extremely happy staying at Aonang Haven. It's really value for money. Although they only come to clean your room only once every 3 days, you can always borrow their towels for your beach trip and they will replace with the clean ones everyday. We don't mind the sparse cleaning service, since we feel safer to leave all our valuables behind. We love the place and would definitely consider to stay here again the next time we come to Krabi.

Room Tip: Choose the King room. It's bigger.

Stayed for 4 nights here.
Room:-
- Superbly clean, quiet, affordable, nice & modern design, almost felt like home.
- Location is convenient - near to 7-11, restaurants & 5-7 mins walk to the beach.
- Guesthouse close at 11.30pm for low season and safety reason. Not ideal for those want to explore nightlife in aonang but it's fine with me as i have very early morning trip almost everyday and definitely want to stay in. Fret not, there's TV with tons of channels to keep you entertain if you feel bored.

Service:-
- Top notch! thanks to Andy (the host) and his friendly & honest recommendation for my remaining 2 days on what to do and where to visit in Krabi which was pouring like crazy and not advisable to visit Hong Island. Guess these are the little extra somethings that you can't get from any 5 stars hotel. :)
- The massage is superb after my daily trips. Highly recommended.
- Personal ride to the airport by Andy and a good chat with him :)

Suggestion:-
- I hope this guesthouse remain its authenticity and originality - don't go commercialized please!
- The only thing i would think will make it even more perfect is perhaps a safe deposit or a simple lockable drawer which guest can lock their belongings. I wouldnt want to carry so much cash around especially to the island trips & to have peace of mind when out for trips/hunting for food time...but this can be easily solve if you have your own baggage lock which i don't have one during that time :(

All and all, superb and fantastic place in AoNang - will definitely revisit and recommend to friends. Thanks Aonang Haven for making my first solo trip so memorable.

Room Tip: - bring your own baggage lock. - no elevator/lift, you might need to climb the stairs to top floor.

Thank you for the review and recognizing our efforts. Do not worry as we would not go commercialized and become something we are not. Aonang Haven is one-of-a-kind and we intend to keep it that way so our guests can genuinely feel the difference when staying with us over another hotel establishment. It's like staying over at a friend's place as most guests would reflect after their experience.

We arrived at Aonang Haven long before check in time, but we were allowed to go straight up to our room, which after a full morning of travelling was nice. Our room, a Queen on the third floor, was beautiful. It was a little on the small side, (not small enough to bother us) but still felt light and airy and was spotlessly clean like the rest of the Guesthouse. There was a mini fridge with free water and cokes, cable tv and towels, and free tea and coffee.

The location was great, quiet at night but still really close to the beach and near lots of good restaurants and a couple of 7/11's.

The service was received was amazing - the staff were always smiling, happy to see you and very helpful, and on our last day even woke up at 5:45 to let us out. The cutest staff member was definitely Vanilla the dog, who was always happy to see you!

We only stayed for 3 nights, but definitely could've stayed much longer. When we return to Krabi, we will definitely return to Aonang Haven!

Room Tip: Queen on third floor was lovely!

For how much we paid, can't rate this hotel highly enough. Really friendly owner who was always willing to help and give advice. The rooms were excellent and modern. A gallery tea room was still to be added and I'm sure it will only add to the charm of the place. Great hotel.
