We arrived into Krabi late at night after a mammoth 24 hours + on coaches as we're ready to crash. We stopped by here and snapped up the last room available, luckily for us the cheapest too!

We only stayed one night so the shared bathroom was not at all an issue for us. The cold water showers were actually quite warm and seemed pretty clean.

The room was a reasonable size and the beds werent too rock solid. We got given clean sheets to sleep under and clean towels on arrival.

The staff were really helpful with onward travel and you can book all ferries/mini buses etc through them.

Location seems pretty good, really short stroll down to the night food market which was great.

On a slightly side note we saw the most monstrous gecko ever while we were walking up the stairs so look out for him - it was very impressive!

Now and again we come across some little pearls. One such discovery was Chan cha lay or sea-house. This was on recommendation of a friend who had stayed here before.

Owned and run by the demure and efficient Pim with some help from her family, this small but neat accommodation had an immediate nostalgic feel for me as soon as I stepped over its threshold and it did not take me long to find out that Pim and her family had been inspired by previous holidays to the French and Italian Riviera for its decorative theme and they had adopted some of what they had seen and liked, which explained as to why the surroundings were rather familiar to me as an Italian.

The place was basic and a world apart from luxury hotel if that is what you prefer and you are accustomed to but what it lacked in luxury more than made up for it with little touches and a discreet but reliable and helpful service.

The room was a little Spartan but made pleasant by shades of blue and a quirky little reflexology white stone filled basin positioned in front of the hand wash basin. The shower cubicle had something missing...a ceiling!! This made the experience of taking a shower under the full moon something of a novelty but a wonderful one. The air conditioning worked fine and as with all seaside resort there are some uninvited guests happy to crash overnight...they call them mosquitoes.

The location of Chanchalai was a big draw for me. It had a lovely temple five minutes away, a night market and an excellent food market where I returned evening after evening to have many big fishes grilled, which I devoured with gusto.

The local songthaew (white colour) stopped opposite the main entrance and took you to Ao Nang in less than 20 minutes and 40thb. From there, you had a plethora of long tail and other kind of boats available for hire from where to do some islands hopping, including the Phi Phi islands.

Breakfast was not included and a good choice was available for order. The hotel also provided a good laundry service for a modest 50thb per kilogram.

If you do not miss the finest luxuries in life and you are content with the basics, Chan cha lay is worth bearing in mind.

Clean, quaint and very central. We had a private bathroom (cold water only but not a problem), air con and a fan. Great value and very Mediterranean feel to the decor.
The staff were very helpful and we were able to leave our luggage there when we went off to Railay Beach for two nights (fabulous place and the boats leave 5 mins away).

The first glance at the room showed it to be colourful and airy. Only later was the absence of a fridge (as I'd had in similarly priced rooms previously) noted. Storage for clothes rather limited, too.
The staff, and one in particular, helpful.
Location very handy - except for hearing music from a bar continue until 3am. Be warned.
Decent breakfasts, quickly prepared.
Remember it's cold showers.
Stayed in an en suite room, with option of fan (450 baht) or aircon (650, I think).
If I returned to Krabi, I'd probably look elsewhere, even if costing a few baht more.

We stayed in a fan twin room (250 THB) for five nights and found Chan Cha Lay an awesome choice. Good location, nice and helpful staff and a cosy atmosphere with a classy nautical decor. We didn't hear any noise from the street though we stayed in one of the rooms at the front. Our bed sheets were clean and we got a chance of clean towels after we'd stayed for a couple nights. Wifi also worked well. Mattresses were a little bit hard but OK. And they might be softer/nicer in some other rooms. All in all I would recommend Chan Cha Lay and would definitely go back if we went back to Krabi.
