4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Please note, we stayed in April 2010 so this review may have limited usefulness. The Library is a sleek, ultra modern boutique hotel with a very memorable red-tiled pool perfect for fun photos. The restaurant was inventive and delicious and the access to the beach was great. I generally prefer the quiet of the West Coast, but if you plan... More

My husband and I stayed at The Library for 6 nights at the end of July. We knew the moment we stepped into Reception (The Content) that we had made the right decision! We were so looked after from the moment we arrived. We stayed in Page 26. It was absolutely perfect. Modern amenities and a large balcony. Just perfect!... More

We went with our 2yr old. We loved the concept of the contents page for the luggage room. Staff could not have been any more welcoming. Our "page" or room number felt more like a small apartment with neighbours. We loved the back light behind bed that you can change colour depending on what mood you were in. Our son... More

Ok so we only popped in for a nosey to check out the hotel with the fantastic red pool and great reputation with the prospect of booking for another time. We left underwhelmed really... but in saying that, we were only there for 45 mins for an afternoon drink... my coconut mocktail was expensive... Very... But very very good. We... More

We stayed for 5 nights in May this year. The room was lovely and spacious and the bed was so comfortable. The bathroom was large and had the basin outside of the shower/ bath/ toilet area. The wifi was included, we had some problems at the start, but that was due to construction in the street. We really enjoyed the... More

It is happy hour 5-7pm, cocktails range between 250-290 baht bit with it being buy one get one free it works out the same price as a lot of the main street bars. Worth the extra cash by far.

If you want some quality cocktails and a slower beat to life than some other bars in Chewang then the Library is highly recommended. The setting is stunning and the staff make outstanding cocktails. Happy hour is the time to come as you will get five star quality at the main street prices. Pay it a visit!

We had cocktails here, really good quality drinks and at "happy hour" prices even better! Lek, Am & all the staff were great, this hotel and the beach bar are well worth a visit, they have seats in the beach or just hangout at the bar! Happy hour is 5-7 and currently 2 for 1, loved it!!

Luxury is what it is all about here. Very different concept, basically townhouses within a garden a pool up front on the beach. Breakfast and food quality is first class. Location is what it is all about as you are walking distance for shopping, dining, drinking. No reason to even take a taxi once you are here. If you do... More

Stayed at The Library in July with my boyfriend. Everything is set up like a book. Our room, Page 19, was lovely. They provide free water, a free snack bar, bathroom amenities, free Wi-Fi and we even had an Apple Computer in our room. Everything is very clean and staff is lovely. Very nice atmosphere and staff seems to really... More
