3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

Stayed one night, decent place right on the river. Nice view of the long boats going by and quick walk along the river to a wonderful night food area. Had the best food of the trip there- and cheap.

Room was clean, stayed in a superior with balcony, river view. Good value.

Breakfast was not included, and wasn't so good. Suggest you go outside to eat as it was pricey, small and not the best quality.

I'm always looking for a good night's sleep and I found it at Krabi River Hotel. I think I stayed there two nights on my way to Lanta and one on the way back.

As promoted, it probably is best value in town: spotless rooms (including hot water, air con, fridge, TV, desk) a pleasant location, welcoming staff.

I emailed the hotel on my way there and they emailed back before I arrived to let me know they had plenty of rooms available. Unfortunately only the rooms with a river view and balcony have any view, the other rooms look out on walls, air conditioners and electricity poles.

Not enough room to roll out a yoga mat but getting a river view room with a balcony solves that, or practice outside.

Only dislike was guests smoking in the breakfast area but I found I preferred to go out for breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the river and a balcony - but book ahead if you want to be sure to get...

Good size rooms that are kept spotlessly clean every day. Get a river view room if you can, I didn't have one as they were full and my room was fine but I think the river views are a bit quieter as well as having the amazing view. Close enough to town - nice walk along river but in quieter location.The hotel owners are really nice and helpful, something just to be aware of is that they go home in the evenings and the security guard on duty doesn't speak any English so if you need to use the ineternet or phone etc. be sure to catch them before they go.

Room Tip: Get a river view room if you can

Stayed here for one night. Very, very nice! Superb and clean room with a balcony and view of the river. It is located along a beautiful river walk with manicured gardens. A short walk to the market and night market restaurant. Breakfast is not included in the price, but they have a very good and inexpensive menu for breakfast which is offered from 7-9 AM. A helpful and friendly staff who can book tours and taxis. The town is bustling and an interesting stop on our two weeks.

Room Tip: Ask for a river view.

Have stayed here twice on previous occasions and have no hesitation in booking this hotel again for a trip in April this year. The riverside location is great, easy walking distance to the market, the night restaurants that appear on the waterfront and the shopping in the centre of town. The owners are friendly and helpful without being pushy, and the rooms are clean, tidy and very reasonably priced.

8 of us ( extended family ) enjoyed our trip & stay In this hotel for 3 nights from 21.12.11. Rooms were cosy,clean & the beds were comfy. Staff were helpful & courteous,( there's a tip box beside the front desk ).The noise of the longtail boats cruising along the river hardly bother us cos the river traffic was kind of laidback. Variety of eating places located nearby and the daily night food market less than 5 mins breezy walk. Great place to unwind along the quiet riverfront after each day's outing. This hotel was our basecamp. Tuk-tuk vans beside the food market. Kindly ask the staff to write in Thai, the places you want to go if ur wandering around town. Street-walk market on weekends.
Mr. Tay

Room Tip: River view from ur room cost extra unless u can do without it.

I am staying at the Krabi River Hotel as I write this.
The owners are friendly and knowledgeable,the hotel is kept clean and secure.
Wifi is good on this,the second floor.
This small hotel is more than acceptable and the location is excellent.
Could use a better cable package that many guest houses/hotels have in Krabi but that is the only complaint.
