After a month of traveling around thailand, getting gouged and haggled as a tourist, we felt blessed to stumble across this most accommodating guest house/ restaurant/ tourist transit office. Jai (the owner) and her family were the nicest, honest and most trust worthy family I have come across in the both times I've been to thailand. If you need any... More

...to catch a bus on next morning, then this is the place you should stay in. The place does not look nice but the bold woman running it is a great hearted person. She deserves the best. I admit the rooms are just okay for one night but the food downstairs is quite good. And all that for few money.... More

I arrived here from a long bus drive from hua hin when it was already dark. Kiwis is like a warm bath to come home to. The location is right next to the bus station. Maybe not right in the centre, but great if you just come from a bus and there are enough motor taxis anyway. The guesthouse is... More

Location of this guest house is perfect, when you need to catch some morning bus, because it is situated on the corner of bus station of Ranong. Rooms were clean, but I choose one without window and it was little suffering during a night, because there was very hot. So I recommend you to pay more and stay in the... More

If you arrive at Ranong in the evening, you may choose this easy choice, but it is better to get out on the next day if you stay in Ranong for a few days or more. The location is far from the city centre, where you can find cheaper accommodations. There are many staff members working in this guesthouse, but... More

This guest house is right by the bus station which is a plus. The rooms are very basic and not in the best shape but they are comfy. There's nothing too fancy about this guest house but lets face it, you're in ranong thailand and chances are you're only here for a few days to take care of a border... More

Stopped one night on the way to Koh Phayam. Basic B300 room, shared bathroom - adequate for one night. VG vegatarian food (several curries) and the warm host, Jai, goes the extra mile for visitors with information and help (vg English).

Roomrate for 1 double fan room was 250 tb. extra bed 100 tb. Bigger room 300 tb. A run down place near the bus terminal. Rooms are vapoury and smelly with fan. Not enough ventilation. Only window came out on the hall. Shared bathrooms which are not that clean or just very old. Doors can not be locked if you... More

After a stay on the close-by island, Kho Phayam, i went to the Kiwi-Orchid as a cheap stopover right at the busstation, before continueing to Khao Sok. Yet the very friendly family who operate this guesthouse and the charismatic city Ranong with its beatiful surroundings made of the planned stopover a stay of several days. For me as budget-traveler who... More
