“Small room / Great pool”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

The room quite small and the bed wasn't good. My boyfriend woke up in the midnight but the bed was terrible and made me woke up too. The pool was great I thought the pool was the best thing in this hotel. Breakfast was average in taste. I think the price was a bit high for the hotel facilities. Location was hard to find.

We booked the cheapest room and were quite pleased with it, quite stylish however it did not have a balcony or terrace but a patio door that opened onto a small area that was only any good for drying washing or keeping trainers etc. but the room itself and the bathroom/dressing area was great and spotless. These are advertised as apartments which in this room was a bit of a stretch, a kettle and a couple of plates and a knife and a fork do not constitute an apartment but we did have an enormous fridge freezer?!? anyway we were happy with it regardless.
The pool area is lovely, clean and well maintained although there was some maintenance work being carried out whilst we were there which we were not informed about. Also, one thing that did annoy us a bit was there were no sun beds, they did have lovely seating areas along the pool but nothing that you could actually sunbathe on. We found a couple of plastic chairs that were okay but if you wanted to stretch out there was nothing, no hammocks as advertised either. We did have daily cleaning and fresh towels and towels for the pool and free bikes that were fine.
We had an issue with breakfast, we booked with Expedia who advertised breakfast was included, but it was not included so make sure you confirm either way.
Staff were nice and friendly and dealt with any complaint professionally.
The area is okay, quite out of Hua Hin but with plenty of choice for eating but it is mainly residential with ex pat's and an older clientele.
The beach is a 5/10 minute walk away with some restaurants.

Room Tip: We had the cheapest room and for a few days it was fine, any longer perhaps a bigger room with a ter...

A really nice accommodation with a relaxing atmosphere. Not strictly a hotel though (no room service or daily cleaning), most guests seem to stay for longer periods of time (several weeks). The apartment was modern, clean and nice. Basic tableware and a fridge were very useful for drinks, snacks etc. A wonderful, long pool surrounded by a beautiful garden with sun chairs and hammocks were perfect.

The location is a little bit remote from Hua Hin, but it's easily reached by tuktuk (about 200 bht) in 5-10 minutes and the staff at the reception were always happy to call for transportation. Other than that, the location was actually really nice as the surroundings are quiet, the beach is about 5 minutes away on foot and there are also two small supermarkets within walking distance. In addition, cold drinks and snacks are sold at the reception. Franjipani has a restaurant that we didn't try though, in addition there are some restaurants close by and bigger hotels with restaurants by the sea that are within a walking distance.

The staff was very helpful and spoke adequate English. When we had a problem with a taxi (not booked through Franjipani) that didn't show up as expected, they went beyond themselves in the middle of the night to help us out (and succeeded!). They also made sure that the taxi they were finally able to find (the driver of which they didn't know from before) was safe and that we weren't being ripped off, which was so thoughtful and very much appreciated.

All in all, would be happy to return to Franjipani again!

We were not planning a stay in Hua Hin so for last minute booking I think the place was decent and price reasonable. Its 5 km or so out of Hua Hin which is only a good thing. No room service in hotel. Hot water not hot. Rather lukewarm.

My husband and I spent three months (july-aug-sept) here, so I think we quite know this resort, its pros and cons, etc.

It's located near Khao Takiab, 3mins walk from its beach and 15mins of song-thaew (the green, cheap taxi) from the centre of Hua Hin, so if you're looking for quiet and don't mind taking a ride to reach the town, this is the place for you. You'll be given free bikes, too.

The 80-mtrs swimming pool is really outstanding: we enjoyed it in any moment of the day. Large enough to welcome numerous guests, very clean, beautifully surrounded by the scented franjipani trees, it can be considered the signature of this resort.

The staff is always ready to help, and is really kind: they've been very dear to us.

The rooms of this resort are furnished with taste and almost design-pieces; the kitchenettes are basic, but we easily managed to prepare our meals at home when we didn't want to go out. There are some eateries on the near beach, as well as a Family Mart open 24-7, that can anyway come in handy.

When back to HH, we'll definitely stay again at the Franjipani!

We stayed at this place for 1 week and we think, it's very nice and quiet place for my family. We can did many activity at here for swimming, ride a bicycle and a little bit cooking for our family.
The staff were very friendly and helpful. If we want any thing they can help us, if not they will try it frist. (we saw) We think, Franjipani resort is very nice place for us and we will come back again.
^_^

Room Tip: Family suite is the best room close to the pool.

I booked for 4 nights and by the second day there were just a couple of guests left...so they dropped the buffet breakfast..the kitchenette was just a microwave on a table...at the price which i paid, i could have easily got a beachfront hotel...not cooperative with free tuk tuk service to the taxi stand...overall very hands-off service
