“Good value by the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

This budget hotel has the enviable position of being right by the river which has proper path that goes to a food market at one end and a small, beautiful park. Our room was small but very clean and the receptionist was friendly and efficient. Try to get a room with the river view -- it's worth the small difference in price. The hotel is also far enough from the busier part of town yet close enough to get to the bars and cafes by foot.

Room Tip: Go for a river view room

This hotel is excellent value - was just 700 baht per night for a really clean, modern room with a/c in a good location on the river. We only stayed one night on our way to koh lanta and they were very helpful arranging our transfer onwards. I would definitely stay here again.

We have stayed at this lovely boutique hotel on the riverfront many times. Always we know exactly what to expect and reservations handled reliably. We enjoy the hospitality and the sunrise from the rooftop patio is not to be missed. The rooms are well priced and clean, the aircon works
the location is convenient and relaxing with a river walk nearby.

Room Tip: river-view rooms with balcony cost more and aren't necessary since the beautiful rooftop is avai...

We stayed there for 2 months! yeah, it's 2 months!!! our first glance at the room, we were impressed. The room itself is pretty compact but it's very very clean with AC, hot shower. The only downside we have is, the tv channel. It's like a cable tv but when the owner change the channel from his main receiver, the channel in our room is changed too. So it was a bit irritated when it happened in the mid of the movie but the free Wifi does compensate all of this. The hotel is located along Krabi river, you can get such a nice view in the evening and really nice breezy air in the morning. it's about 10-15 minutes walk from the hotel to Krabi town center, Night food market. The owner, MR.Somchai and Mrs.Jai are very very friendly, the staffs they are very nice and helpful.

Room Tip: - the room on the road side is pretty noisy for the light sleeper. - better view on the river side.

Stayed here 5 years ago and the rooms are exactly as we remember them.Soft clean beds, strong quiet A/C, powerful warm showers with probably the best extractor fans in Thailand, nice location near the river, friendly staff, free wifi and computer(in reception).And located 5 minutes from the riverside night market for cheap food.

Was booked into this hotel by Sea fun Adventure Cruises to stay before our cruise , had three nights here. Very clean and tidy, front rooms looking out at river are the best. Breakfast was basic but cheap, staff very helpful, Near night food market and main street. Would stay again

Room Tip: Get rooms facing the river for the view

We spent four nights here and a good time. The rooms and first flour eating area are very clean and comfortable and you're right on the water. It's just a short walk to town and you can easily catch a truck to Ao Nang (50 or 60 bht) or a long tail boat to Railay beech (150 baht). The hotel did a great job with our laundry. The hotel offers free beach towels which is a nice perk and the wifi is pretty fast. The staff and owner are friendly, but sometimes it can be a little hard to communicate, but we never really had a problem.

If you are coming to Krabi for the beaches, I strongly suggest staying in Ao Nang if you can. It's about thirty minutes from Krabi and offers excellent beaches, a nice town, and it's closer to other great beaches and islands.
