“Thai Hotel Krabi Town- good location, view- but noisy- & terrible restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2012

i stayed in this hotel for a few days (and one other time for 1 day) during one of my frequent visits to Krabi town (i go to Krabi, our provincial capital, every 1-3 months)...
good location w/two of best restaurants in town within a 1-minute walk
(little Muslim place across the road, Viva Italian restaurant just 10 seconds further)
the rooms are generally clean & spacious enough, w/nice views on upper floors
but frequently one or more things doesn't work;
and the fan is wholly inadequate- small & rotates above the bed, often quite noisily
(forget a/c- the units are almost impossible to change the settings)
avoid the breakfast especially- tell the desk to skip the included breakfast & save 100 baht or so (and all the food, really) in the downstairs restaurant,
(which turns into a karaoke club in the evenings, making the lower floors along the street unacceptably noisy until 3 a m)
PROS: good central location, some nice upper-floor views, elevator, ok value for money, smiling service
CONS: sometimes poor maintenance, noisy lower floors (restaurant becomes karaoke club by night), terrible restaurant, fairly constant traffic noise until midnight or so

Room Tip: avoid lower floors, especially on street side- upper floors have nice views *(but not all upper room...

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 May 2012

I arrived quite late at night and was told there was no fan room, but then when I turned to leave, there was suddenly a fan available.

I paid 380 Thai Baht, and this was a largish room, attached with TV. There was only one English channel and all the lights were broken except one, making it a little dark. The worst thing, by far, was the fan, which was over the bed attached to the ceiling, but it was very small and rotated 360 degrees, with no way to change it's movement, so it was hardly on me. It was quite an uncomfortable night because of this.

Room Tip: Look up at the fan ... and turn it on. Turn the lights on as well.

This is a "get what you pay for" hotel. It's very well located near all the cooler shops/restaurants in the Chao Fa area. We had a standard room - it was spacious, clean, though it showed a lot of wear. Wifi and dresser as well as a TV. The best thing about it was the 520 baht price we got - about $17 US. The staff were lovely, but do your laundry elsewhere as their prices were high for the area. Didn't see the rats another reviewer claimed, nor was the view anything but yuck from our room. But if you're in your room in Krabi enough to comment on details, you probably weren't on vacation. One complaint - while we were there a number of Thai groups, as well as some school groups, passed through and they were very noisy til around midnight. Overall I still recommend it for a cheap clean well located place from which to explore a one of the most beautiful regions in the world.

Nice enough hotel for a dated and characterless sort of place (which is occasionally a good change from intimate or colorful guesthouse) until a steady parade of rats kept me awake all night. When I brought it up at the front desk, they said, "No, we don't have rats here." If I thought it would've been worth arguing, I would've brought down a handful of droppings. Instead, I left.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2010

we stayed for 2 nights and were lucky to be upgraded to standard room on the fifth floor - try to get one on the high floors as the view is great! Staff were quite helpful, though they were all very young. Wi-fi didn't work in room - we were too high! But the room was large with cable TV. Seemed very clean with a big bed. After backpacking in all manner of hostels it was nice to be in a hotel for the same sort of price!

The breakfast there is pricey but if you come out of hotel and turn left, there is a small food court at the end of the road by roundabout that does great egg roti for around 15bhat. Yum!

so it was a decent hotel for a decent price. Nothing to rave about really but nothing to complain about either!
