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

We originally stayed at The Donkeys Rest for 4nights however extended our visit by another 3! The location is great, close to some really yummy restaurants ( friendly kitchen-thai & the S&S curry house) and is a five minute walk to the beach. The pool area is great to just relax and hang out with gym facilities and a good... More

Had a great time at The Donkeys Rest! Great rooms and fantastic owners! The pool is really nice and the hotel is not too far a walk from anything u need! The beach, mall, restaurants, massage and all amenities near by! The owners were really accommodating and really helpful with any and all questions! I would certainly stay there again!

The room was average, it wasn't that clean, there were some stains on the bed cover and the drain in the... More

After staying in lovely hotels in Bangkok for work, I was on my own for a weekend of relaxation and on a much tighter budget in Hua Hin. Given the exorbitant prices of the hotels along the beach, I decided to stay at The Donkeys Rest given the good reviews on Trip Advisor. Here are my impressions: Location: decent, although... More
