Reviewed 18 March 2013 via mobile

Guest of room 101. Very helping staff and they can communicate well in English.
But I didn't get a good shower experience here as the water pressure is low and it flooded after 5 minutes. I guess they didn't check if the bathroom is clogged.

This is a very clean and nice hotel with large, newly renovated rooms, a good shower, AC, a fridge, TV with good satellite channels, fast WiFi in your room, and a small balcony. There is also a small pool with shaded areas on each side of it to lounge in. The only deficits we have discovered so far (we are here until tomorrow) are that there is no lift, so you have to lug your bags up and down several floors, and the breakfast isn't included (it costs 150 Baht). There is a minimart within 20 yards (turn right at the main road) and many nice looking restaurants in the area. The rooms are quiet too. It is about a 10 minute walk down to the road which runs along Ao Nang Beach where there are really a LOT of stalls and restaurants.

Good hotel for 1500 Bath in high season. Stayed here for 9 nights. Front desk staff is not smiling too much and is very busy taking care of their hair and make up. Room is spaceous and fairly clean. Aircondition, 21" crt ("old fat style") tv, safe and small balcony. View is better the higher in the hotel you get. Cleaning staff is pollite and smiling to the guests. Pool was clean and wedged between this and the neighbouring hotel. Fast help when aircondition stopped working. Breakfast is ok. I recommend this hotel if you're not too picky about small details and if you are on a tight budget.

We are staying here for 3 weeks in total. Our room is 103 so lots of steps down, great exercise. The room is huge has a balcony a tv mini bar-reaonsbly priced too, a massive bed a safe and a cracking shower, a fan and an ac unit We have felt really at home here. The breakfasts are super with very posh bread for toast. You can order you preferred style of eggs when you arrive at your table.
If I were to really search fir some feedback it would be. Butter fir breakfast, a reading lamp, coffee and tea making facilities and an extra pillow. thank you B H

Cheap decent rooms in quiet location off main road. 10 min walk to beach and restaurants is good as makes it quiet. Tiny swimming pool is more like plunge pool so nice to cool off in.

However service was not warm or friendly as you would expect in Thailand and breakfasts are awful - best to be avoided and go elsewhere.

Stayed here for 3 or 4 nights when I was in Krabi.

The wifi is kind of off sometimes, you can't get it on every level but it is there. They have a breakfast in the morning which was fine enough.

Their pool is pretty awesome! I like that its in between two buildings and two levels - I saw a lot of bad reviews about that but I thought it was cool.

There is a better resort in front of it that you can see from the rooms facing the ocean so don't be too sad cause this place is dirt cheap!

They even added another night to our stay when my friend was death hungover and couldn't move but they made us switch rooms because they had already booked our room for that night...which would make sense if we had some nice awesome room with a view but we just had some super random one. But the only they moved us two had a better shower so no worries! :)

Ben's house is not on the main street which turned out to be great to avoid the noise of the party scene, but is only a 5 minute walk to the main road so there's no hassle. the staff were helpful in booking tours and activities in the area. The view from our house had a slight ocean view and a view of the luxurious pool next door.

Room Tip: choose a room on the 5th or 6th floor for the best view of the sunset and a bit of the ocean.
