First, This Hotel in Ao Nang not Krabi town 15 minutes away.

This hotel has large rooms with large westernized bathrooms. With air conditioned rooms were $20 U.S. a night. It has wi-fi in the rooms although it was extremely and unreliable intermittent.
The beds are comfortable and well furnished with tile floors, a desk, bar fridge and mirror. They include free bottled water each d the main beach where you can get boat rides to Railay Beach. The staff are on duty from 6 am until 9 pm with guests having a magnetic card to enter anytime after that. They can set up tours, although when we were there a new girl was being trained and was ay and clean everyday. New towel and well cared for. The hotel is only a short walk from not always accompanied with a more experienced staff member to assist. They were helpful and yes, like past reviews they do watch a fair bit of T.V., but are always willing to come over to answer questions. They do laundry next day pickup for 50 Baht / KG. The hotel is situated just off the main road that leads to the main beach maybe 150 meters down the road. Lots of restaurants, ATM’s and shops in the area.

From the other reviews there were some complaints about the stairs and I did see a couple of younger guests complain about the stairs, but we were on the 3rd floor and it was simply 3 floors of stairs. If you have trouble with that then either lighten up your packs or maybe it is time to get a little exercise, unless you are very old or disabled. If so find another place without stairs. I am 48 and it was not an issue.

I would recommend this place for price, location, cleanliness and size and comforts of the rooms. They did air out mattresses each morning; not sure if that was to freshen them or some issues with odors were being addressed. It is a good price value.

Ao-nang is about 10 or 15 minutes drive by minivan from Krabi town.

Room Tip: Front Desk Closes at 9 pm and you need your room key to get in. Wifi issues when we were there.

We stayed 2 nights at J.Hotel as a stop gap from just doing all the South islands from Koh Lipe back to Koh Lanta, our next stop was Koh Sok but wanted a few days to chill out and get some Laundry done as its much cheaper on the mainland than it is on the islands (We got this done at J.Hotel at 40thb / KG). When pulling up outside the J.Hotel looks can be deceiving the building next door looks to have been demolished but for some reason they left the first floor in tact, the locals use this area to fly tip and there was loads of rubbish floating around, J Hotel from the outside has seen better days, but don't let that put you off.

We asked to look at two rooms; the first was on the first floor 1000thb a night (very large with a balcony) the other was on the second floor, which was 700thb both was newly furnished to a high standard, we chose the one on the second floor as we was on a budget. The room was large, had air con plus a fan, free WiFi which was very fast and reliable plus hot and cold power showers which was a godsend after having cold water to shower in for the past 3 weeks on the islands! All in all its an excellent place to stay and would recommend it to anyone travelling this way.

Ao Nang is somewhat of a small beach town, a stop gap for people travelling around the South of Asia. There are plenty of places to eat & drink, unfortunately there are many tailor shops there and you will be getting constantly bombarded by the Indian staff on commission to get you into their cousins / uncles / grandmothers shop. Even when a friendly "No Thanks" is given they will still chase you, there are around 25-30 Tailor shops on the main front, so it will get a bit wearing after saying "No Thanks" 60 times!
In my opinion Ao Nang is a nice stop gap location fine for 2-3 days after that you will want to venture elsewhere.

Room Tip: Ask to look at the rooms before you decide then you can pick the one that suits your preferences.

Unfortunately I only stopped at the J Hotel for one night on my way to Koh Lanta. This place is awesome! Reasonably priced, HUGE rooms and very clean. I am a solo female traveler and I felt very safe here. They treated me like family even though I was only there for one night. They arranged my ferry for the next day and made sure I was very well taken care of. They are VERY friendly and give true Thai hospitality. I will be back!

Just returned from j Hotel :( did not want to leave, during our 3 week visit to Thailand J was the best hotel that we stayed in, lovely large room, great beds, smart modern bathroom very clean.
We stayed in room 301 facing the front with stunning views of the ocean - a nice balcony to lounge on too to take in those stunning views.

Staff were very friendly and chatty and organised a Sea Kayak Trip for us at a much cheaper price than the many many Booking booths throughout Ao Nang - we had read on TA before going that JH were cheaper and they were...........
We tried the breakfast on a couple of mornings which was good, we paid extra for this as had gone Room only - very reasonable.

J is situated on a side street 5 minutes walk to beach, nice and quiet at night time - they lock the main entrance at night time but if you arrive back late after a few beers ....as we did, you can get in by using your key fob.....so don't loose it !!!!!

All in all i will definitely be going back to J next February and cant wait - thank you for a great stay.........................................
