1 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Not only the room was a dirty and smelly dark whole, but the staff and owner were incredibly rude. Breakfast is terrible, everything looks like having been cooked two days before. I saw what it is being commented before, the owner literally shouting at guests. In general everything looks so worn, sad, and dirty. Totally under the average in Thailand... More

The reviews make this place look much worse than it was for us. We looked around several and this was the nicest in the area! Looked at a pool view ac bungalow but opted for a standard one in the 2 storey block. Both were nice, very clean, good bathrooms, good air con, possibly recently renovated. The pool view had...

stayed 3 nights in Dec 2015. Rooms were just adequate. Smelled kind of moldy but the AC did work. Internet is awful. They don't turn it on until 9-9:30 am which is ridiculous and is spotty at best. C'mon man get with the program Mr. Owner - who as confirmed by other reviewers is a very LOUD man. Kind of... More

Firstly, please beware of the owner, mr. Jung. He will shout at the guests and the staff for no apparent reason. The trick is to be extremely polite and friendly with him at first to avoid any awkward encounters with him later on. The rooms are generally dark and dingy, you will need to ask for towels (beware of owner... More

Friendly reception, the room we got was different than the one we ordered, not the fault of the resort but of the booking agency, staff solved the problem fast and efficient. Standard room with good bathroom, shower had a funny mount which made it difficult to shower. Wi-Fi did not always work but that was the only gripe. Staff friendly... More

I'm astonished at all the negative reviews on this. My only gripe was the mandatory New Years dinner at £25 each which was a really poor buffet with pasta, bread and fish. It was one of the "cheapest" options left available on the island at £70 per night. We had a nice little bungalow with an old flintstones style bathroom.... More

We encountered numerous bad aspects while staying here but I'll try to keep it short.... - Huge cockroaches coming into our room every night (in the double digits) - We booked thinking we were getting breakfast included and were very rudely told we weren't allowed - Terrible customer service when all wifi stopped working, simply ignored the root issue, sent...

This is one of the average mid-range options at Railay. I stayed in a standard double room which was clean and spacious but depressingly lit. Bathroom had a hot shower though with an odd mounting for the showerhead making it a little difficult for me without handholding the head. I had aircon but there is no wi-fi at the hotel,... More

Out of 3 months of travelling Thailand and surrounding SEA countries this was by far the worse hotel/guesthouse I had stayed in. We usually stay in budget places too. We had to get up, pack up at 3AM and get out of our bungalow because we had found that about 50+ cockroaches had climbed up through the cracks around the... More
