The Nine Hotel @ Ao Nang
Ranked #15 of 144 Speciality Lodging in Ao Nang
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 August 2013

A fair location and spotlessly clean but the 'mountain view' is rather spoiled by the busy main road between you and the mountain. Quite noisy at night. No breakfast was available while I was there. The outdoor spa didn't show either. The limited English of the receptionist gave her a rather off-hand attitude while the night staff didn't even bother to look up when I walked in... The room though was excellent in terms of comfort and cleanliness.
All depends what you're looking for in a hotel I suppose but, to me, this place didn't feel particularly welcoming.

We arrived in Ao Nang 2 nights ago and it was so hot we just grabbed the first acceptable room we could find. Unfortunately that was a mistake. After two nights of bar music till 3am and drilling work starting one morning at 8:30 we decided it wasn't worth the cheap price. After walking up the street, asking the prices and seeing rooms this hotel was miles ahead of the rest and the best price! It's about a 10 minute walk to the beach, but that's no bother. Loads of market stalls and coffee places to grab something on the way and a tuk tuk cost me only 20 baht. The receptionist is absolutely lovely and the rooms actually look like they do on the pictures which is hard to find in low cost accommodation.

If your travelling on a budget and missing out on the resorts in Ao Nang, then stay here! I only wish I had found it sooner.

I am not giving this review by any means of exaggerating nor for the sake of giving review, its a very good hotel to stay undoubtedly if you are a person who is more concerned about sanitation, price & hospitality. Couple of drawbacks but not surprisingly because its quite common in all the hotels in some or other way..

Persons coming outside of Thailand should ensure that you've purchased plug adapter to charge your laptop/hp etc to ensure you do not have any interruption.

You do not have breakfast nor basic kitchen equipment in the hotel to enjoy however i've been informed that they ll be reinstate these services soon.

Last but not the least, Staff/Recipient/In charge Person (All in All)---->NUT she is very helpful & its really nice to get a person like that because she never shown her face though we've disturbed her in many ways in asking many questions. She is very attentive & will keep you in comfort zone in all the ways.

Best Regards,
Manjunathan

Room Tip: The room we stayed is road side view. It's very pleasant during evening/night time

We were in Thailand for 2 weeks, in 5 cities. This was hands-down the nicest place we stayed. It was clean, modern. We'd had quite an ordeal getting there (took 2 hr 20 min from Krabi Town, got ripped off by 2 drivers), and once we arrived, they couldn't find our reservation (I'd called the hotel directly that morning). But fortunately, they had an empty room. Tham put us at ease. He is very helpful and polite. He insisted on lugging our bags to the third floor (no elevator). Room was nice, bathroom stylish. Sheets and towels were white, not dingy brown. Water temp fluctuated a good bit, but never got excessively hot or cold. There were no bugs; I felt comfortable leaving my luggage open without the fear of taking home cockroaches. About 15 min walk from beach. Overnight, I think the electricity may have gone off for a minute, but then we couldn't get the air conditioner back on for 2-3 hours - we were drenched in sweat because there was no separate fan! All in all though, it was a nice stay. And for a very good price! We tried to extend our stay by another 2 nights, but they were fully booked (they only have nine rooms!). We reluctantly had to leave, and ended up paying the same price for a much inferior place (which was ranked the #1 B&B in Ao Nang).

Room Tip: Book early! We got a mountain view room - didn't have much of a view though, so no need

This newish hotel has, you guessed it, 9 rooms only, and is located in a perfect location, just near the MacDonalds on the main road leading away from Ao Nang towards Krabi. Probably 500 meters to the seashore. Right up the street from where the muslim "cart ladies" set up in front of MacDonalds. The rooms are modern, with large beds that were fairly firm, but good. Wifi and breakfast included in a modest rate(1500B). The staff here, especially "Nut" were very very nice. The view from the front room balconies is great, looking onto the cliffs at oceanfront. Noise from the street was not an issue. Only bad thing is having to drag your bags up stairs, as there is no elevator. Book in advance, as this place is mostly always sold out!

Room Tip: views from the front rooms are good

1) location = very good . near to the beach ( 15 minutes walk ), 7-11, restaurant, shops, bars, restaurants, convenience stores, 7-11, Starbucks and McDonald's.

7) jacuzzi suite = jacuzzi's working fine but not so private, just a few bushes to cover the surroundings. I can even see the jacuzzi beside my room. not recommended if you want some alone time.

8) view = bad.no view at all for the jacuzzi suites as its been block by the bushes. if you want some view then go for the normal room.

9) tv = not working on my room . too lazy to ask because i;m on vacation so tv's the last thing on my mind.
