The Nine Hotel @ Ao Nang
Ranked #16 of 143 Speciality Lodging in Ao Nang
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 December 2013

Got a mountain view room at level 3.
Need to remove footwear before entering.
Staff are okay and do their job well but not warm

Cons:

if you are a light sleeper you might mind as it is near pub. they will be playing songs till wee hours.

there is a weird smell along the stairways...mouldy dried saliva smell? but the rooms are okay

Wifi in my room at level 3 is intermittent, You have to connect to the correct wifi . they have got 3 wifi names (nine1,nine2, nine4). if you are at level 3, connect to nine4. i connected mine to nine2 and is quite bad.

No lock for bathroom, just a sliding wooden door.

No ventilation for bathroom, the smell will take awhile before it goes away.


Pros:

-Spotless, new and clean!!
- great A/C strong and cold
- Welcome drink is delicious
- BATHROOM IS NICE! hot shower, with rain shower and body soap and shampoo provided.
- Also provide complimentary Chang water in glass bottle daily
- have a safe box
- provided an umbrella for each room
- decent range of TV channels.
- Good location
- breakfast is a self service buffet of cereals, bread/toast. fruit juices and milk + english breakfast (2 eggs + 2 strips of bacon or 2 english sausage)




- Location wise, along ao nang beach, it is a simple U shaped so the whole street is of walking distance to me (i don't mind walking). About 4 min walk MacDonald and 1 mins walk to 7-11,

Food:
2 min walk to street food hawker (2 different stalls: the pancake and fruit shake is great, but the Thai food stall is soso, i regretted eating there.lol).

Boat noodle house! affordable thai food, opposite side, diagonally left about 10 min walking?. there is a boat in front.

Dumpling noodle, street food, 50 baht per bowl just opposite, 5 min to the left.

tip: i haven try renting a scooter, but i saw many caucasians rented. Many locals also ride without helmet, it is foreigners who wore helmet! And it is soo cheap, i saw the rate range from 150-250 baht for the whole day!

Tuk tuk are available at a flat rate of 20 baht per ride within ao nang. They cannot travel to Krabi Town. Cheapest way to get to town is to wait opposite Nine Hotel and spot a white mini van (songtheow), written in bold "AO NANG KRABI TOWN". It will drop you opposite Vogue Shopping center in town. the only shopping center. Cost 50 baht one way.

There is also a Tesco (local shopping mart) worth a visit, exit from Floral House, turned left and walk for about 25 mins?? thereabout. I did not visit but on my way back to airport i realised. What a waste.

We stayed here for two nights and I have to say that the hotel is well decorated. The rooms look nice and are spacious (we had the standard room). The beds are very comfortable. Only finishing wasn't well done. The staff is really friendly and helpfull. The breakfast was good. I was so happy with the whole wheat bread which is so hard to find in Asia.

A few downpoints: the waterpressure is very low. Too bad, because the bathroom has a special shower and looks so nice. We had a balcony but no view at all since it was completely closed with wood (carpented) so we didn't use the balcony at all. No elevator and the stairs are quite steep. We stayed on the second floor and that was high enough for us even though we had backpacks that we could put on our backs while climbing the stairs ;-)

Room Tip: There's a bar in the back and they are constructing a building next door. Try to see a few rooms...

We stayed for 1 night at the Nine hotel in Ao Nang. The location is good, not in the middle of the center of Ao Nang, but within a few minutes you're there. With a large bed and a neat bathroom with rainshower, our room looked nice. It wad clean as well. However, we thought the mouldy smell was a bit too predominant for us.

Some people of the staff don't speak English at all, especially the ones that are there later in the evening till the early morning. So this might be annoying if you need any help or have some questions.

Overall: nice rooms for a reasonable price, but don't expect too much of the service.

Stayed here in June with my daughter and aunt. Got a room with the outdoor jacuzzi.

Room is spacious, beds and pillows are pretty comfy. Love the bathroom! Does get a bit noisy at times but it's tolerable. Location is good too. Nearby the beach, about 7mins walk - all u need to do is turn right after leaving the hotel and walk all the way down. Plenty of eateries as you walk on.

The staff who attended to us, Ms Nut, is very very friendly and gracious. Does all that she can to accommodate to our needs. Very pleasant indeed. Will definitely stay here again if I return to ao nang. =)

Overall, I am very satisfied with my stay at The Nine Hotel.

Pros:
Room is modern, spacious and I love the outdoor area (table, chairs provided and Jacuzzi tub to relax in).
Staff are friendly, efficient and proficient in English. They are able to provide advice on F&B and activities to do around the area.
Location is very convenient (2 minutes walk to 7-11, McDonald's & Starbucks) and just 30 minutes drive to the airport.
Many restaurants, pubs and massage parlours along the same stretch of road.

Cons:
There is no lift at the hotel.
There is a lot of construction going on in that area and many mosquitoes as a result (though not the hotel's fault). Hopefully the situation will improve once all the construction is completed.

Stayed here for the one night. We arrived at around 8 o clock at night to a dark reception, so were worried if the place was opened! Finally a night porter came out, he had no English so was surprised that the actual receptionists left so early. There are no lifts in this hotel but helpfully the night porter brought up some of the bags for us, not sure how long it would have taken us otherwise! The room itself was very nice, the shower had hot water, the bed was comfortable and the wifi was acceptable.

Unfortunately in the morning they started to do repair works in the room next door to ours. I felt this should have been something that should have been told to us the night before as we had a long day travelling. We did receive discount on the room (after much discussion) All in all a nice hotel to stay in (just make sure there are no maintenance works planned!)

Dear valued customer,

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide us with some feedback.
Regarding the noise, please allow us to clarify with you that even though construction could be heard from our hotel, it is actually from our noisy neighbor right next door. It is quite common for hotels to conduct maintenance work during June-October due to it being low season. Nevertheless, we really apologize for the negative experience.

We are also happy to share with you aswell as other readers that The Nine Hotel is currently undergoing many improvements such as added amenities within the room including new DVD players (DVD library in the lobby), tea/coffee makers, additional comfy pillows and various other details to increase comfort as well as convenience for our guests. The WIFI bandwidth has also been tripled with improved coverage ready for next season.

Again we apologize for your experience but if you can give us the chance, we will definitely make your next stay with us a much improved experience!

Yours sincerely,

Tam (manager)

We stayed here for 2 nights after realising the backpacker scene of Railay was not for us! This place was just what we needed...

The room had a very comfy bed and pillows, AC, TV (not loads of English channels, but that's pretty normal!), wardrobe and safe, fridge and a balcony with clothes hanger. Everything was spotlessly clean, the towels were fluffy and the bathroom was great! Shower gel and shampoo are provided in the bathroom and the shower itself was amazing! The receptionist was very helpful when we asked her to help arrange an early morning taxi to the airport for our departure.

The hotel is situated on the main road, but we did not hear any road noise at all. It is around a 10 minute walk to the beachfront and its accompanying restaurants, shops and bars and there are spa shops nearby for a bargain massage.

We thought it was excellent value and would stay here again!
