I've stayed at the Krabi River Hotel a number of times since 2006. It's in a good location on the river with direct access to a long promenade & the night food market. Rooms are comfortable -- good beds & linens, good w-fi, strong AC. Owners and staff are extremely accommodating. The only downside is the lack of a lift... More

Immaculately clean & well run. Staff was super Friendly. Very quiet when we were there. A little expensive for what it is, but worth it because it was so clean. In room safe was a plus. Nothing fancy & not a ton of personality but would definitely stay here again. River view rooms are a plus if you can get... More

Good and quiet location, perfect if you have to catch a boat to Railay or if you want to stay near night market and have a nice view. Nice view from the front rooms, garden and terrace. Helpful and friendly host, can book tickets for the nearby island, and arrange pick up. Fast internet. No elevator. Easy to book, in... More

Simple hotel hits all the notes you need. Pretty and convenient location, very standard rooms but nicely kept. Rooms were clean and had everything one needs. Quick walk to night market, shops, bike rental etc.

Really warm welcome for the two nights that we stayed in Krabi. Close to the centre of town and right next to the fantastic food market. Right on the river although our room didn't have a view of it (despite having a balcony)

We turned up without a booking and they managed to fit us in. We couldn't find anywhere nearby with twin rooms but this place had king sized doubles for a good price including air conditioning. The couple who run the hotel live on site and are very nice and friendly. Location is good, right on the river (they have a... More

Stayed at the River View in July had a great time and the town has everything but a beach!!. We travelled as a family of 4 and the children were 8 and 10. Lots of boat trips available and the nightmarkets are well worth a visit. We will be back again soon.

Nice quiet hotel down by the river out of the hustle and bustle of town. Good undercover parking for motorcycles, with a security guard watching out overnight. Breakfast, which was not included in our deal, was a bit average. Staff friendly but didn't have a good grasp of English. Room was small but ok, cleaned daily. Thai hotels don't seem... More

We stayed at the Krabi River Hotel as a last minute booking between Christmas and New Year. The lady at reception was so helpful and kind, and we only wish they had had availability beyond the one night that we stayed there. The rooms were spotless, with TV, fridge, free drinking water, towels and toiletries. The shower was good and... More
