OK if you're on a budget

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 22 Mar 2013
This hotel is ok if you are on a budget but overall I was a little disappointed with it. I booked a family room and the hotel's website says it has 2 king beds. But it turned out only one was a king, the other one was even smaller than a queen size, and it was a bit of a squeeze for my 2 boys. The room itself is extremely spacious (42 sq meters) but for such a large room, the bathroom is very tiny and one has to wonder why.

Breakfast was limited, I wasn't expecting a great spread since the hotel only has 20 rooms but it was still too limited. On the morning of checking out, I asked if we could check out an hour later than the actual check out time (which I reckon is a very normal request) but the staff said no, unless I paid a fee.

On the positive side, the staff were generally helpful (aside from the late check out request) and assisted us with booking a taxi and our laundry, and the standard of cleanliness was good.

Conclusion: Stay elsewhere if your budget permits.

Reception staff very very helpfull and always greet you with a smile. We stayed for 5nights in room 132, we were really happy with the room, the view was not good, but the room more than made up for that. Room service is good.we will stay again if ever in Ao nang.

We stayed here in the lowseason and they where rebuilding the place. The rooms are normally 1800 baht but we could stay here for 450 baht a night. Perfect deal.
The room is big with tv and aircon. But the aircon is a bit loud. The bathroom is good size.
They cleaned the room every day, unfortunely they gave us new towels but no new sheets. So after a couple of days it should have been nice to get new sheets. The staff is friendly.
It's 15 minutes walk from the beach and center. For the lowseason it's a good option but I wouldn't stay here in the high season. It's too expensive!

No elevator for 4 level hotel. Try to avoid the 4th floor. No ordinary staircase, a steep boat-like staircase instead. Loads of insects, found a cockroach next to my bag and a million huge ants partying all over the room every night. Noisy aircon.
The bathroom was ok and the staff is friendly but that's not enough to make it a good place to stay.
The price seemed reasonable when we booked it but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. There are better options in the same price in the area.

i met my Fiancee in Bangkok and flew to Krabi airport, where (pre-arranged for 600THB) the hotel met us and took us directly to check in.
first impressions were what great value for the price. we had mountain view room as it was quieter and away from the noise of the main road outside.
the staff were fab and oragnised all trips on our behalf, even the car hire. they were a wealth of information and were more than happy to do all they could. any question was answered either immediately or when we arrived back at the hotel.
breakfast was basic but alot of restaurants literally outside the hotel and all the way down to the beautiful beach. picture postcard. great location and freindly staff.
highly recommened and great to see all the staff on the beach at New Year!!

We stayed here for 10 days over Christmas and New Year

It is not in Krabi itself but in Ao Nang which is an excellent diving centre with a lot of
restaurants and bars and great links to the Thai Islands such as Phi Phi whcih is only 45 mins by speedboat

The hotel itself is excellent value. The rooms were clean and had good on-suite bathrooms with plenty of hot water. Breakfast was basic but is included in price and was a good way to start the day. You could even have eggs cooked as you like!!

The best thing about the hotel was the staff. The reception were so helpful and arranged everything we needed and gave great advice as to where we should go and what we should see.

it's location is also excellent, situated only a couple of hundred yards from the beach and close to plenty of excellent bars and restaurants.

All in all an excellent choice if you are on a budget and want to stay in Ao Nang and visit the islands.
