By Thai standards this place is not cheap, but by Aonang standards its about average. Our room on floor two was reasonably big, with a big comfortable bed, TV, aircon and balcony. The pool is a plunge pool, but adequate to cool off in the heat of the day, and is bit quirky sandwiched between two buildings. We were lucky... More

Me and my boyfriend booked to stay for 4 nights at Bens House. I found this hotel/B&B to be a very nice little place to stay while exploring Krabi. The room was big, nicely decorated and had a lovely balcony over looking the garden. The beds were comfy and the aircon worked excellently. There was also a fan attached to... More

Too noisey when the place is full of kids out of control. Management or staff aren't on duty after about 11pm, so if selfish parents leave their doors open at 1.30 am and 7am for kids to mess about and run from room to room, there is no one to stop them. Some cultures, it's normal to leave doors open... More

When comfronted by this the staff were unwilling to help and extremely unapologetic and rude. The room smells a very damp and dank. Also breakfast is very expensive and you receive very... More

Nice and comfortable hotel. Very clean. I stay in Family room it is so big and spacious. Wifi is very fast. location wise you need to walk about 5-10 minute to Aonang mainroad which is consider near. The staff wise is ok but they can't really understand english so well. The swimming pool is very deep 1.5M. Not so suitable... More

Very nice hostel which is actually laid out more like a hotel. We got upgraded to a sea view room for no charge when we arrived, which is always a plus. The ''sea view'' was actually a ''tiny sliver of water view'' but I'm not complaining. Just be aware of what you are getting if you book into a sea... More

This hotel is dead nice, lovely views, pool and rooms were top marks, it is a little walk to the beach and the main street but some lovely places to eat on the way. Didnt have breakfast whilst we was there. Only problem was the staff were a little rude.
