Chan cha lay is a very well presented and clean guesthouse. The double room was of adequate size and had a mirror, small table and a towel rack. The only minor bad point is the lack of blankets. A small square of thin curtain fabric is provided on the bed which is not comfortable or suitable when the fan blows...

We stayed here for 2 nights with my boyfriend and we loved this place. The location is excellent, very close to the pier and to the night market. Shops, bars, restaurants around. The staff was very nice and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. All the public areas (bath, toilet, smoking area, restaurant) are clean and stylish. Right next...

Stayed here 3 times between visits to Aonang and Koh Lanta.  Central location in Krabi town near Chao Fah Park Pier. To reach the guesthouse, we took the hourly airport shuttle bus from Krabi Airport. Tickets 90 baht per person can be purchased from booth inside terminal building. Shuttle bus goes into Krabi Town first then onto Aonang. The driver...

Ignore any negative reviews, I'm sure that is just a reflection of themselves :) We stayed for 5 nights and all had a great experience. The staff were all attentive and friendly and the 3 rooms we had booked were all great. The prices offered for excursions were also cheaper on on par with what other travel desks were offering....

Staying at this place was a nightmare during my travelling around Asia. The guesthouse staff was not professional at all, even worse, there acted very rude to clients. I will never recommend to anyone!!!

Be very careful, they prepare your bed with old stained sheets, hidden under the blankets and when you check out they force you to pay 1000 or 500 bahts although is visible that those are really old color stains that passed from the blue blanket and that it was washed over and over again. Basically they are renewing their old...

We were greeted by a very friendly lady who showed us to our room and made sure everything was OK for us. The room itself was great, and the experience of an outdoor shower under blue skies was amazing each morning! Breakfast wasn't included in the rate, however it was available in the guesthouse for only a couple of pounds...
