“Perfect for the price. Great location.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 February 2013

J Hotel was perfect for the semi-budget/mid-range traveller looking for basic accommodations. But if you’re looking for perfection or a “western equivalent” hotel experience, this is not your place. It’s got AC, fridge, TV. Nothing fancy, but comfortable. Great location near the beach (5 min walk) and near good street food and bars. It’s perfect for the price – We paid 900 b or like $30 Canadian.
The girl up front was very helpful and always smiling. The man (manager) was also quite helpful as his English was pretty good. We booked a boat trip and our ferry to Lanta through the front desk and both were seamless.
Would totally recommend.

The hotel did not have our reservation! Although we had booked through Agoda and fully paid for it. After a lot of discussion, we were offered the sister hotel J. Mansion. We had to lug our heavy baggage all the way up 4 floors as the hotel did not have a lift.

The rooms were nice and clean with all basic amenities provided. The staff were helpful and very informative. Breakfast is available at additional costs. Very close to the beach and right in the middle of the main shopping and dining area. There is a scooter for hire shop just next to the hotel.

Please note: You are not allowed to enter the hotel with you footwear. You will need to leave them at frontdesk whenever you get back to your rooms. You are allowed to carry them back only in the night once the front desk is closed.

I stayed in this hotel in OCtober'2011. Came to Krabi for my honeymoon with my wife. The manager and his staff are all very helpful with directions and recommendations. Room is very clean, spacious and wehave the sea-view room.
This hotel wasn't really very expensive and was right smack in the shopping streets.
Very convenient to get food and to order your tours for the next day.
I will definitely stay here again the next time I go to Krabi again!

Stayed here for five nights. Rooms are spacious, cleaned everyday and comfy. There nothing special but for reasonable price it's good. It's right in the middle of town near Restaurants, bars, markets and most importantly 2 min walk to the beach. So location is the main reason we picked here. Would stay again.

We had a real good stay in this hotel for a week. We had a great room on the upper floor wich was very clean and had a nice bathroom and good bed. And also a nice view over the city. Great place to stay not far from the beach and restaurants. We would really go here another time.

This is a basic budget hotel that suits my purpose. My objective was to do island hopping tours and have a clean and convenient place to sleep at night. J. Hotel fits the bill. If you're fussy, pay more and go somewhere nicer.

The staff definitely needs more training, but you have to set your expectations realistically. You are paying USD 30-40 per night, so don't expect someone who can speak fluent English and provide seamless service. They are willing to help. And when I went back at 12:20, 20 minutes over my checkout time, and my bathroom was already cleaned, they didnt even hesitate to let me use the shower since I just came back from island hopping. For me that's great service. I dont need to feel sticky while taking my flight back.

Thumbs up!
