“Excellent”
Reviewed 13 April 2012

This is a small hotel/guest-house in Krabi Town. We stayed here 2 non-consecutive nights with a 6-month old.
It is absolutely clean and orderly.
The thing that makes it excellent is the helpful owners. They helped us out with a taxi to Wat Tham Sua and pointed us in the direction of several markets.

There is an aerobics class in the adjacent parking lot in the early morning that is quite loud, so early-to-bed-early-to-rise is the way to go here. (The first time we stayed here we were jet-lagged so that didn't work out so well. The second time we were prepared.)

This is not a beach-front hotel with amazing views, so don't expect anything like that. It is an immaculate, convenient, helpful place to stay in the town of Krabi.

The breakfast at this hotel was amazing as well.

There was a market (clothes and things) in the adjacent parking lot one evening and an awesome food night-market a few blocks down the river. I ate dinner for like $2CDN!

If in the area, I will definitely stay here again.

Another two nights at The Krabi Pura and glad to report things have remained the same, which is great!. You get probably the cleanest guest house in Thailand, warm friendly staff that will go out of their way to make sure you get what you need at a fair price with no fuss. We emailed Atchara to make the booking and arrange a transfer from the airport. There was a driver with a private car waiting at a great price.

The room is clean and comfortable, the air con works great. The shower has a small electric heater on the wall that does the trick. Towels and soap are provided which is a bonus.

The location is very central and excellent to go down to the night weekend market. If you go left there is a row of little restaurants about two blocks up and they serve great coffee and food. You can hear a bit of street noise from your room at night but nothing exceptional.

We enjoyed the share balcony at the end of the hall for a nice drink and watching the river at sunset. There are drinks for sale in the foyer at great prices (both alcoholic and not).

Once again, no other place in Krabi Town that we will stay at!!

Room Tip: The rooms at the front do not have windows over the morning aerobics class and are a bit more spacio...

Stayed here one night a few days ago. Great location in Krabi Town. Rooms are small but very clean. The owner runs a small shop downstairs so it is nice to just pick up drinks/postcards/snacks as you come home.

She also has all sorts of tourist info pertinent to the area. We had everything planned out so didn't pry her for info but I'm sure she would have been a big help.

My only complaint would be the noise. Due to the good location it gets really noisy early in the morning.

Simple hotel with a great location. The rooms are basic but immaculately clean & there are many nice touches everywhere you look. Other than the morning aerobics class, it is quiet & I slept very well. Khun Atchara is helpful and welcoming & her mother might give the best hugs in Thailand!

@Krabi Pura is definitely Value for Money with no regrets! It is not just a budget hotel but family friendly and centrally located in the vicinity of shops, night market & small eateries, close to Maharat Road. Our extended family truly enjoyed our night's stay here.

Our likes:
1) Rooms are really clean
2) Friendly and helpful owner
3) Nice balcony whereby we have our improvised breakfast meal and tea breaks
4) In the vicinity of shops, night market & small eateries

Although toilet/bathroom is very basic but is clean and still acceptable. I definitely will recommend @KrabiPura for those who wish to stopover in Krabi Town & on budget travel.

Room Tip: Ask for room on low level if you have problem in climbing steps.

Immaculately clean Room (you could eat off the floors), good central location (the bus to AO Nang stops in front of hotel) and tasty breakfast. Only negative would be If you're a light sleeper than you'll be up for sure at 6am to the women's tai chi class chanting and singing in the parking lot adjacent to your window. However this is easily remedied with a couple of Changs before bedtime.

Just returned from an enjoyble 3 days stay. Amiable owner and family. Atchara has her own travel agency so can organise any trip at competitive prices hence, saves a lot of hastle having to walk around in the heat for another travel agency. We did a 2 hour morning river cruise trip at the cost of THB800. Very clean room with great view of the Bay with plus plus for cleaniless. As one past reviewer said, "it is so clean that you can eat of the floor" I can second that ! Remember that it is only a guesthouse so the rooms are functional . But they have provided 2 sitting areas and a balcony for relaxing. The air - con and hot water works well. There is wi-fi in the room and also 2 computers at the reception area if you did not bring your laptop.
The location is central.There is a great market 8 minutes away that sells fruits and cooked food( in the evening) and also many Thai eateries around the block,. . We ate at a Thai seafood restaurant just down the road and it was very good at Thai and not tourist prices.(ask Atchara as I cannot remember the Thai name). The seafood was ultra fresh and we did not fall ill. There is nothing worse than getting food poisoning during travels.
The local mini bus that goes to Ao Nang, the beach town passes right infront of the guesthouse half hourly.
From Ao Nang, one can hop to the Railay beaches on a long tail boat at THB100 o/way.
Other reviewers have written about the early morning "noise" i.e. Police March Pass.
I am one of the world's worst light sleeper . So if anyone is like me, just bring ear plugs but if you are like my other half who is the norm, you will be fine, he slept like a log !!
So, if you would like to experience a bit of Thai ambience, do stay in Krabi town and do stay in this guesthouse.

Room Tip: The Purple room has a great view. of the limestone karsts and river.
