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).

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

Due to our travel plans we needed to stay a night in Ranong near the bus station. This place was suggested to us as it is in a sidestreet just next to the bus station.... PROS - we loved Ranong town, it is a really nice real thai (non-touristy) town with a really good vibe, the food at Kiwi Orchid... More

Although the people there were nice, and the food was okay, There were too many of ants in the room. When the fan was turned on, it lifted up the lino on the floor and make quite a noise. There was no ensuite bathroom, it was a shared one. The upstairs seating area was old and tired. The paint work... More
