Swiss Chalet
Ranked #44 of 143 Ao Nang B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 5, 2012

Excellent place when you are not a fan of big hotels with huge lobbies and hundreds of hotel rooms.:) There are few rooms in the upper floors of the restaurant, but rooms are clean and good for simple stay in Krabi. The owner was spending a lot of time at the restaurant and it has a nice European feel of doing business :) (You will miss it once you spend a lot of time in Thailand).
The continetal breakfast (for 120 baht) was excellent! And you could see many people from surrounding huge hotels visiting the place for food!
For the room for 2 persons, we payed ca 1000 baht.

Room Tip: the one on the upper floor has nice balcony and good views to the street.

We are staying across the road in the Centara hotel for 2 weeks but eating at the Swiss Chalet almost every day! The place is very cosy and clean to compare to other similar restaurants. Has an open kitchen staff is nice and friendly. The Tom Kha soup is best in Ao Nang here and has great Swiss or German style food. The bolognese sauce was the only I didn't like, too oily and spicy. But really tasty everything! You can rent a bike and book in trips as well from them.

We made a last minute reservation at the Swiss Chalet a day or two before arriving in Ao Nang after we needed to change plans due to the flooding in Bangkok last November. They promptly responded to our emails, confirmed our reservation, and arranged for a car to pick us up at the airport the next day. The hotel is in a great location in Ao Nang. It's far enough from the main street to be quiet and calmer, but it's still just a 5-10 minute walk to get to the boats, the beach, the restaurants, etc. There are also other upscale hotels right next to and across from the Swiss Chalet, so you'll be in good company. Maybe the best part of the Swiss Chalet is the massage place next door - we had aloe vera massages here that were just about the most indulgent thing ever. I would have one of those every day if I could! There are also convenience stores on either side of the hotel; you don't have to go far to get whatever you need here.

The staff at the Swiss Chalet is amazing. The women who work there in particular made sure that we were taken care of. We had an issue with our AC the first night; the next morning the staff gave us the choice of switching to a different room or having them call in a repairman to fix the AC while we were out that day. We chose to stay in our current room, and sure enough they had totally fixed the AC by that evening - how's that for service? They have a binder full of the various tour choices in Ao Nang; they offered suggestions on the ones we were interested in and then arranged for us to be booked onto the one we chose. For the other day, they suggested just walking down to the beach and taking a boat to Phra Nang Beach - good advice indeed!

The rooms at Swiss Chalet were clean and comfortable. I had trouble with the shower going hot-cold-hot-cold, but my friend didn't, so maybe that was just me. The only other issue was that there was some kind of tiny worm with an attached cocoon that likes to live on the walls and ceiling in the bathroom; they must like humidity? I would not be a fan of this at home, but after 2 weeks in Thailand and Cambodia experiencing all the native bugs and creepy crawlies, these seemed innocuous enough since they just hung out and didn't touch us. Ideally, there would be less worms in the shower. But for how cheap the Swiss Chalet was compared to how expensive the hotels across the street were, a some tiny non-interfering worms seemed tolerable and would not keep me from staying here again. Plus the hotels across the street could have bathroom worms too. And to be entirely fair, we didn't even complain to the hotel about the worms.

We came to Krabi and Ao Nang by chance due to the flooding and had previously spent several days in Phuket for the scuba diving. The scuba diving from Phuket was amazing, but if you're just looking for a quiet place to enjoy the beaches and relax, Ao Nang is a better choice. We fell in love with Ao Nang in just two days. We happened to be there for their Loy Krathong festivities, and it was a really magical experience. You can't go wrong in Ao Nang!

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking the street and it was plenty quiet, so I don't think the room location...

We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel and would recommend and stay here again.
We were slightly afraid of staying here because of an earlier review complaining of the noise but this has by far been the most quiet peaceful stay in Thailand so far.
The staff were excellent and went out of their way to help. The location was slightly remote and you had a little bit of a walk to get to central Ao Nang but it was perfect for us.
Thank you Swiss Chalet!

This hotel is in a great location with really friendly and helpful staff. You could get a little jealous staying in the 2* hotel when every other hotel in the small road is either a 4 or 5*, however all your basic needs will be looked after here. The only real negative was the low water pressure in the bathroom. Would stay again for a couple of nights, however would probably want something better if staying longer

I have stayed at Swiss Chalet twice this year (2011), once in April/May and again August. The staff are super friendly, the food is great, the rooms are very clean and comfortable, it is well priced and located close to everything you could need. The staff went over and above the call of their duties to ensure that I had a great holiday. I will definitely be going back there and I would highly recommend it.
