Although this Ben's House isn't right on the beach the staff and cleanliness of the hotel make up for it! I stayed at this hotel with a large group a few weeks ago and everything was lovely and only came back to the town of Ao Nang for a day.. the hotel allowed me to store my bags while I... More

Budget accommodation in the midst of the action at krabi has a nice pool but why swim in a hotel pool when pristine beaches await. Day trips to islands such as Phi Phi and activities including scuba diving, snorkeling, rock climbing and kayaking are all available.

Stayed in the same 'triple' room as before with balcony looking over another resort toward Nappharrat Thara. Last time there was a little 'bleed through' noise in the mornings as there was breakfast served in the adjacent room. That has changed (for the better) now as Ben's house has expanded to include the building across the lane and fronting the... More

Was here in 2012. Staffs were friendly and informative. Breakfast was basic nothing much to excite. Clean room with a fair range of tv channels. However there is no lift so probably not suitable for people with the difficulty of walking. Unique thing is 1 of the house rule: No footwear inside the hotel so basically you know what i... More

Ben's house sits a street away from the main drag of Ao Nang and so long as you can walk and explore comfortably, it is a cool place to base your self in Ao Nang. It's perfect if you want simple comfort and a non hotel vibe. I arrived late and they quickly organised a transfer when I knew was... More

Great place with great value. We had a great room with sea view and a nice balcony. The food in the hotel restaurant is really amazing and the restaurant and hotel staff is really friendly except the 2 receptionists. I have not met grumpier people. No smiles, no please no thank you no nothing. The hotel has a great location... More

It's a better than average hotel for SE Asia, but not VERY good. The Good: Location is tucked away in an alley/courtyard which has decorative plantings. About three short blocks to the food carts, and 6 blocks to the beach. Excellent massages can be found at the massage place at the other end of the alley. Tile floors, clean, thicker... More

As most Thai places this restaurant has plenty of staff, and as normal they are poorly organised. There is only one person making coffee, and after 6 attempts she was happy to give me my double latte, and this is a positive thing. Although I waited for 15 minutes for a cup of coffee, she declined to give anything short... More

A modern hotel, mid range rates, very clean, nicely located on a hill. It is not far to walk to the main road with all sorts of shopy and restaurants and bars. Nice breakfast. In house coffee shop with real Italian coffee. The pool is existant, small and hidden. There is ONLY the pool, no place for sun bathing. But... More

Stayed at Ben's House as part of an Intrepid tour, the room was ok, the place is a bit musty, no view and it is a bit back from the main strip a bit of a hike, but all in all it was an ok place. The air conditioning worked well, the TV actually worked, the staff were ok, the... More
