Baan Taveesri is a little off the beaten path, but that's not too much to worry about as it's very quiet around the area. The Lomprayah bus driver did not have a clue where it was, so it could have been a struggle finding it if I hadn't spotted it by chance. It's on Leela Valley, there are other resorts/hostels on that road that have been around longer than Baan Taveesri has.

It's a very decent and cheap place to stay in Krabi. It's a little out of the way from Ao Nang beach, but if you don't mind walking, it only takes about 20-30 minuntes depending on how fast you like to walk.

We were greeted by probably the cutest Labrador, known as Carrot, who loves to play and bark loudly at cars. Coming back to see her after a day out was the best. We were also welcomed by Charlie (the owner of Baan Taveesri, along with his partner Jeab), who upgraded from a basic room to a standard, at no extra cost... result!

Our room was spacious, spotless, with a fridge, aircon, and T.V with a dvd player. There's a bunch of dvd's to choose from in the reception area. Our room was cleaned every other day, which was not a problem.

You can book daily tours at the desk. We booked a tour to Kho Phi-Phi Island for my birthday. It turned out to be pretty good! Price was reasonable too.

The only downfall to this place that we had was lack of someone at the desk or to help out almost everyday. Admittedly you can go next door for help or ring them, but there was one day where no one was around for about 10 hours.
Internet only works downstairs, although you might be able to get a weak signal on the other floors.

One last thing to mention is the local restaurant next door. They mostly serve Thai food with a few western options as well. It's incredibly cheap. Between my girlfriend and I we had 2/3 meals between us and a drink and the most we paid was 200 baht. I highly recommend going there as it's cheaper and tastier than the food served along the main road.

After staying around the whole of thailand this feels like the best value for money we have achieved. We stayed in one of the apartments of which has a nice bed, good sized bathroom, a couple of comfy chairs, television, DVD, fridge and balcony. What more could you need! All very clean and the friendly, helpful owner with a cool dog called carrot adds to the nice atmosphere. A great stay!

I would highly recommend this place if you want somewhere cheap, clean and spacious and very peaceful. Even though it is a little further from the beach it's an easy walk or you can rent a scooter for a cheap price from the owners. The room we stayed in on the first floor was fantastic - air con, big bed, clean, fridge, good wifi connection and a tv with a selection of DVDs to choose from. The owners are such nice people, super friendly and helpful. They arranged everything for us during our stay and our trip to koh tao. They have the cutest puppy ever to play with! We ate at the restaurant next store for every meal as it was delicious and a really good price (much cheaper than the Main Street). They even delivered the food to our room when we didn't feel like going out. Definitely stay here if you're heading to Ao Nang can't recommend it enough!

If you are traveling to Krabi and are a Lonely Planet follower, ignore what they say about Ao Nang and give it a try. We found it to be a delightful beach town and the perfect home base for all of the island hopping we had planned. Baan Taveesri is mostly to credit for this experience. The guesthouse is just perfectly located away from the busy main road. It is quiet, immaculate and an easy walk to everything in the town. The owners, Charlie and Jeab, are very helpful. Within five minutes of arriving(but after the taxi had left), we realized my purse (which had our money and passports) was left in the car! Jeab and Charlie quickly responded by contacting the taxi company and within 15 minutes, my belongings had been safely returned. Trip saved, thanks to them. Our only regret is that we didn't book in advance. We showed up without reservations and they only had availability for one night. Bottom line - come to Ao Nang, make reservations in advance and stay at Baan Taveesri.

Room Tip: Our room was very large, with a refrigerator, TV, DVD player and safe. I do not think it matters wh...

Great value for what you get: a clean room, friendly hosts, and next door to a hidden gem of a Thai restaurant that we didn't get to try out until our last day. It's a budget place so dont' expect luxury (e.g. drain is often clogged), but it's also a really great price.

However, it is a bit far from the beach/downtown, anywhere you want to go.

And there is no wifi in the rooms, only the lobby, unless you get room 1 or 2 on the lobby floor.

This is the best Guesthouse in Ao Nang and properly one of the best in Thailand. The large, clean and modern rooms are excellent value for money and the Rooftop sun deck is a great place to chill and a read a book. I would rate this Guesthouse 5 stars however the real stars of this place is Jeab and Charlie who owns and run the place. Ask Charlie to cook you up his famous Danish breakfast trust me you wont be disappointed. Can only say that if you hitting down to this beautiful part of Thailsnd this is the place to stay...

Pros:

Large clean rooms

Air con, fridge, water each day, hot showers, tv etc

Quiet location

Relaxed, friendly and helpful owners

Cheap, friendly restaurant next door

Labrador puppy ready to greet you

Cons: None

We arrived one day earlier than we booked. We were welcomed and given some useful information regarding things to do and how to get around. We stayed in a double room which was clean with good air con, fridge, tv etc. The room felt homely and the bed was very comfortable.

After one night we moved into the deluxe double room which we had booked. The room was absolutely huge, basically a little studio apartment minus the kitchen. Rooms and en suites were clean, showers were always hot on demand.

The guesthouse is about a 20 minute walk from the beach. We walked in the evenings and took tuk tuks during the day (20-30 baht per person)

The little restaurant next door is ideal for breakfast and evening meals. It's cheaper than the places further down the hill as well.

The owners Jeab and Charlie were welcoming and very laid back which made for a comfortable and relaxed stay. All in all we would highly recommend Baan Taveesri to anybody staying in Ao Nang
