“Interesting guesthouse”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

Karoon was recommended by my son who has stayed there several times. Built on stilts over the ocean. Like previous reviews, the room rocks with the ocean and has a soothing effect. The room is basic but adequate. Shower was very small - bed comfortable. No air conditioning so it seems a little hot and stuffy. The best part was the terrace where the restaurant is located. The views of Hua Hin were terrific - the terrance very relaxing. For those on a budget, I highly recommend Karoon - close to restaurants and shopping.

Room Tip: Choose a room closer the the end of the building for better ventilation.

Karoon guest house is one of several guesthouses built on stilts over the sea on Hua Hin pier.
I stayed in a room with a fan which was clean and comfortable and great value for 390 baht a night. For this I got ensuite facilities and a TV and another nice touch was that they provided a second fan in the room as well as the one attached to the wall. My room (number 14) was situated near the end of the edifice extending out into the sea, so I often had the sound of the sea under me as the tide came in, which I found very soothing.
At the end of this pier guesthouse Karoon has a restaurant. It was great eating breakfast in the morning with unobstructed views of the open sea. The food is pretty good and the prices are very reasonable. The owner/manager, Fabrice, is French and he does an excellent job of running the place and keeping it well organised.
The only problem is, is that the place is too popular and it's often full. They don't accept phone reservations so if you want to stay here you need to walk in and hope they'll have a room. I've stayed in all of Hua Hin's pier guesthouses and for me Karoon is the pick of the bunch, all things considered. It can be booked on Agoda but the rate is slightly more expensive than the walk in cost. I'm looking forward to staying there again vacancy permitting.

we stayed here for a night before moving to there other hotel the victor guesthouse.
we paid 490 baht for a twin room with an ensuite bathroom, stand fan and tv.
the hotel is built over the sea so you have a cool feeling of being at sea (without the boat rockiness), however if your a light sleeper like my girlfriend you may struggle for a good nights sleep, i however quite enjoyed it.
at the end of the hotel is the karoon restaurant, it has decent prices for breakfast and the restaurant is pretty cool.
complimentary sweets at the front desk and free wifi (which can be flakey at times)

Room Tip: if you dont want sea noise choose a room as close to the road as possible

I enjoyed my stay at the Karoon Guesthouse. Room was very basic but clean. Staff are very helpful. Location is great. At night the sea comes up and you can hear it under your floor. Very nice.

The only thing I did not like was all the gaps in the floor that allow plenty of mosquitos in.

Very old, very tired, extremely SMALL. Two people are on top of each other & no where to put your suitcase. In the long hallway leading to the outside deck seaside, you can see light thru the cracks in the floor and look down to the beach. Imagine how many bugs can come thru these cracks. We saw our room and did not open our suitcase,but rather asked for our money back and left.

I stayed at "Victor guest house" which didnt serve breakfast and instead recommended its visitors to go to Karoon, so this review is about the restaurant and not the rooms.

The location is superb as the guest house is built on a small wooden pier, with its restaurant located on the far end of the pier overlooking the ocean. The Setting id very romantic and although I didn't get a chance to, I imagine it would be lovely spot to share a bottle of wine with a loved one as the sun sets.

The staff were friendly and helpfull and the owner seemed like a nice gentleman. We often saw him talking to his patrons making sure everything was satisfactory.

Karoon is french owned and this reflects on the guests, most of them seemed to be french. I only mention this because in Hua Hin it seems common that travelers stick to places where their nationality is predominant. Personaly I find it a bit odd but for some it might be important.

Walking down the corridor we did get a glimpse of the insides of a room as housekeeping was putting it in order. It looked a bit worn and was rather small but I'd expect nothing else considering the limited space on the pier. If I return to Hua Hin I'd gladly give it a try :)
