We had a nice room on the top floor with the balcony overlooking the limestone mountain! It is also located on the mainroad, thus the noise from the traffic. Light sleepers have the option of requesting for rooms at the back (not facing the mainroad). The hotel is new and the room came with a king size bed and a very spacious bathroom (the bathroom can do with a few wall hangers though!!) It is clean and nice with friendly staff!
Nut, the soft spoken, polite & petite lady greeted us at the front desk and rendered assistance warmly. Nut even helped us print out a 1 page boarding pass which really saved us from having to look for a printing/photocopy shop!
The best thing about this hotel is its location. One can easily find delicious Halal Thai food just metres from the hotel. Restaurants & souvenir shops are all walking distance to the hotel. The pier where long tails to Railay Beach can be found are just 5-10 minutes walk from the hotel. Tour agencies for island hopping and other Krabi tours are also conveniently located nearby.
Just next door is a travel agent where we were able to book a taxi costing 600baht to the airport.
The hotel also offered free wifi. However, while we were there, they had problems with the router, thus depriving us wifi access for 2 days due to the weekend!
There are a few options for breakfast including continental breakfast, egss on toast, bread & croissant. The fried eggs were a bit burnt on our 1st & 2nd day of stay. On the 3rd day, the chef finally aced the fried eggs and it was a nice surprise!
I would recommend this hotel for families, friends, couples and solo holiday makers. However, for the elderly, having a room on the 3rd and 4th floor may be cumbersome as the only way up is through the staircase!
