“Ideal location”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

Stayed for 3 nights whilst looking for apartment for one month.
Price is right, laundry service very cheap and quick.
Rooms spacious.
Staff somewhat lethargic, but helpful.
Perfect location to all beach front restaurants, bars and massage places.

Room Tip: No lifts, ask for 2nd floor (ground floor is 1st floor)

The room we stayed in had by far the best view from the hotel of the Main Street and the sea (Ask for a forth floor room). However it was just a standard room with nothing homely but still comfortable, it just felt a bit cold. The staff seem to have no interest in making your stay even more enjoyable. There also seems to be a slight infestation of bugs (don't worry they don't bite) and the bathroom had a bit of a drainage problem with exposed pipe work running across the floor. It does the job, and that's all.

Clean and spacious room in a great location - not on the main street, so a little less noise. Lots of shops, restaurants and tourist offices nearby. We booked a white water rafting, elephant ride through the hotel and paid much less than list price! Room was less than 500 B per night (low season) with service each day (towels, toilet paper, soap and 2 free bottles of water).

J Hotel is good, but could be better. I had a great room, which had a view out to the sea.

The issues I had were worn bed linens. The hotel really needs to buy new linens. The bathroom could have also been cleaner. It seems that the staff there is content to do 'just enough'.

The hotel is well located. The beach is a 5 minute walk, and there are lots of food options directly in front of the hotel, and within a couple of minutes walk. There are also several convenience stores.

I would probably stay here again, as the other hotels within the price range don't appear to be much better. I recommend this hotel for those on a budget.

Also, do some price comparisons before buying tours / transportation directly from the hotel. I was quoted a higher price by the hotel for transport to another part of Thailand than a transportation service located very near to the hotel. It wasn't until after I declined the transport , that they offered a price that was equal to that of the transportation service.

Hotel is clean, rooms spacious, air conditioned and equipped with hot water shower. Free WIFI in rooms. Location is near the walking street and there are many shops and restaurants around. Lady that checked us in was slightly frosty but other than that I would recommend staying here for those on a budget!

I booked here based on trip advisor reviews.
It is the perfect location. 3 minute walk to the beach, and just off the main road for a quiet nights sleep.
It's a budget hotel so basic but clean with huge rooms. No breakfast or pool but for under $20 a night it's a much better alternative than staying at a back packers. Staff are lovely but their english limited so don't expect too much help with tourist stuff. There are plenty of tourist places nearby to help. Bus from Krabi airport was 150 baht and dropped me off right outside the hotel.
