We wanted a nice place for a 2 Night stay in krabi, near ao nang and the Beach. But instead, this hotel was far away from everything and in the worst condition possible. We didnt even wanted to take a swim in the pool due to the lack of maintenance of it. Chairs by the pool were broken as well.... More

My stay was pleasant but the location is far from the main town area. The only option to get into town is by using a private driver called by the hotel which is super expensive. Rooms were clean and staff were nice.

This hotel would work for a stay if it were not for a location that is not convenient at all. In addition, when you do hire a taxi to get to the beach areas, no one seems to know where this place is at. You may pay less per night at this hotel, but then you end up paying a... More

We stayed here thinking it was close to the bus station but we were very wrong. What we were told should be a ten to fifteen minute walk by Agoda and the front desk turned out to be a 45 minute walk in crazy hot dusty roads. The hotel didn't provide transportation to the bus terminal so we had to... More

The rooms in Howdy were excellent. The bed was huge and comfortable and was in a generously sized room. Everything was considerable new and exceptionally clean. The massive color photographs that are on the wall above the beds really brighten the room and give it energy. The bathroom was certainly adequate also. My room had ceiling high windows which overlooked... More

I did not mind as I had free cancellation in case I changed my mind. after some research I have chosen to book... More

The hotel offer you a shuttle to krabi town, you quit the hotel a 19;00 and you can come back a 21:00. During the evening there no local bus... More

Very impressed with the staff. Rooms are clean. This is a great holiday. More important, there are many places on the surrounding mountains and adventure tourism. Not far from the airport.Thank you very much.

We stayed 2 nites here and booked 2 different rooms - garden view and pool facing. The rooms with the garden view was bigger and smelt musky when we checked in - felt as though either the rooms had been unoccupied for a long while or the Management does not practise airing the rooms at any time at all.
