The place itself is a bus ride away from the main town but this was not a problem fro us. There are plenty of places to eat in the area and there is a plaza nearby. The pool was the best and this was the main reason for staying. The rooms are clean and had a fridge and coffee etc... More

The hotel's owners are unpleasant, they just don't care about their "guests", the woman is quite rude and the man just ignores the customers. I live in Bangkok and this woman is the worst hotel's owner I've ever met in Thailand, she's very irritating. The rooms are very simple (no decoration), but they are large and clean. The bed is...

We booked here for 11 nights based on the reviews on tripadviser. We have a lot of mixed feelings for the place and the owners. The rooms were spacious and were clean. They were serviced every day and bedding and towels were changed every 3 days or so which was fine. I personally found the bed too hard and the... More

We have also lived and worked and travelled in many countries, from first to fifth world, so we are easy going and accepting of how things are, wherever and whatever, usually without criticism.

We stayed 4 nights in the Donkey's Rest.The owners were friendly. The pool is just next to the hotel, but it's public. In the late afternoon there are a lot of people, but they clean it every morning. The room was giant and clean. We had actually an apartment. The location is okey, there are a lot of very nice...

Very happy with the perfect distance for all aspects of the main town. It is in the right surrounding for a peaceful stay but also close enough for easy access to beaches and town. Rooms were always clean and spacious for what ever price bracket u choose. The bar area has a nice cooling breeze during the day and the... More

We chose this hotel based on the fabulous reviews we had seen on Tripadvisor, but were disappointed with certain aspects of the hotel. On the positive side it is in a fairly good location in Hua Hin, close to a number of good restaurants in Soi 94 and with easy access to the centre of town. The room we had... More

We stayed at the Donkey's Rest for 3 weeks Jan - Feb & all had a brilliant time. Having stayed in Hua Hin on 7 previous occasions (ranging from newly built condos to basic B & B's), this place has without doubt the best pool area & was one of the reasons we plumped for it. We were also very... More

I stayed 10 weeks, this was my 4th yearly visit, I am a young at heart 66 year old woman and feel completely safe staying here. Big rooms, aircon and fridges in rooms, fresh clean sheets and laundry all done in-house. Big pool directly behind hotel. Great location just off Soi 94 which has all types of restuarants, 7-11 store,... More
