“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We all know its touristy area.
However, good walking street just outside the hotel property.
Lotsa pharmacy and cafes and eateries.
Very near to scooter rental and also a lot of loose tour companies to book onward trips to other part of Thailand.

An eager to please waiter for the lunch service too.
Near a happening disco near by too.

We stayed here following a last minute change to our plans.
The hotel served its purpose for us, the room was large enough and as we had our 7 year old daughter starting with us she was able to sleep on the sofa bed which kept the price down (another hotel in Ao Nang quoted us an extra 1200B per night for an extra bed - seriously?!)
The hotel definitely needs some updating, but the pool area was really nice for such a central location, and the breakfast was very good indeed - the best inclusive breakfast we had this trip, so worth paying for.
The one thing that this hotel could do to improve the experience wold be to create a more welcoming feel from the staff. Smiles were in short supply, and they would respond to requests with limited communication and little effort. Shame really, the land of smiles was lacking here.
Two tips for eating here - we had some great thai food at the very rustic and basic tiny restaurant on the left as you go out of town, it is sort if carved into the side of the street. Cheap and so tasty, we also had an excellent BBQ at the Last Fisherman on the front - at 350B it was excellent value for what we had and really good quality.
We like Ao Nang for all the hustle and bustle, but find that a few nights is all we need here!

This place would be just fine if it was kept up. The outside is deceptively nice. The first thing I didn’t like about this place is that we were lied to about the price. When we first inquired at the hotel, we were told that it was 2500 baht a night. As we didn’t have that much money on us, we went back to the hotel we were staying at and called from there. I confirmed again that the price was 2500 and that this would be the amount deposited to reserve the room. When we got there the next day, we were told that the price was 3500. I was understandably angry, and the front desk lady just kept repeated that 2500 was the low season price and that my friend and I must have heard wrong (we didn’t). We didn’t feel like walking around with our bags trying to find another place, so we just ate the extra 1000 baht. The whole thing struck me as shady.

Upon entering the room, we noticed it smelled very musty (think Pirates of the Caribbean ride at DisneyLand). My friend’s sinuses acted up and we think the moldy smell of the room is the most probable cause. Even the pillows stunk. Housekeeping was quick to replace the pillows when we asked. The floor had also not been swept sufficiently. My friend said that she thought her bed had bed bugs, even though I did not experience any bites on my bed.

The bathroom smells like pee and is in major need of remodeling. The shower has a lot of mildew and the fixtures had lime all over them. The shower pipe leaked and so did the seal around the shower, ensuring that the bathroom floor was soaked after the shower. The toilet handle was glued/taped on to hold it into place.

Another thing is the wi-fi, which only works 50% of the time. A call to the front desk fixes it temporarily, but it is spotty.

A more minor detail is that the lights by the bed are strictly for mood lighting and basically useless for reading.

The upsides: It is a great location; you are in the middle of everything but tucked away off of the street about 50-100 feet, so the noise is not a problem. Right across the street from the beach too.
The breakfast is decent and the staff (besides the deliberate overcharge fiasco) was very responsive.
The hotel has a very nice, clean van that will drive you to the airport for 700 baht; just about 100 baht more than an outside taxi.
The pool is lovely.

Bottom line, unless a major renovation is done, I would not stay here again, nor would I recommend it to anybody else. It really needs an update and is way too expensive for a run down, smelly room with spotty wi-fi.

We stayed 2 weeks at Princeville in Ao Nang. It was a very positive experience. Our room was spacious, tidy, nively decorated. The staff was very friendly. The hotel was surprisingly quiet being that close to the centre, beach and nightlife. Just a few steps out and you are on the beach. Pool area is a bit small but there was always enough space and beach towels were available. Breakfast could have a bit wider selection, especially better juices would be nice to have. I can definitely recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Rooms in the restaurant building closer to the mountain are for sure quiet and cosy.

In the heart of Ao Nang village so the location is really unbeatable. Walk to all parts of town within five minutes.Sparse amenities but clean rooms. No alcohol served on the property and that includes the restaurant. Breakfast adequate.

Room Tip: Some of the rooms can be near night clubs so best to ask for a quiet one.

We stayed for 4D 3N from 28 Jan to 31 Jan'13, we arrived after 2 pm & check in was a breeze.

We stayed at Grand Deluxe Room. Room was spacious. Wifi were very strong. I had no problems playing online games & movies !!!

Toilet amenities were basic. No toothbrush, toothpaste. Just shampoo, soap, cotton buds & shower cap. Toilet were rather huge with rain shower & shower head. Bathtub, too.

Tv channels were ok, they had Hbo & Fox. Just to keep us occupy whole night.

I had no problems with the air con & bed.

Anyway, breakfast varities were limited. But delicious. Afterall, myself & hubby were not a big eater but its sufficient.

Location wise were very close to food eateries & souvenirs shops. There is burger king & haagen dazs. And various of tourist agency where you can rent a van, etc.

In fact, we were given complimentary 4 island hopping !!! Great.

Hotel staffs were polite & friendly.

Will definitely stay here if i do return to Krabi. Thank you, Princeville.

Nice spot, clean with attentive staff who were very helpfull. Close to the beach, tour boats and restaurants. Tucked in behind the main drag and the action. Spent 4 nights and would recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: Stay on the 2 nd floor.
