“Good situation, very uncomfortable room”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 7, 2012

We stayed in this hotel for a week. The hotel is well situated, and the superb beach is just across a lightly used service road. The staff were helpful and pleasant. The swimming pool was a nice feature, well shaded, and maintained, although there were few sunloungers available considering the capacity of the hotel. The food was so-so!
However, the reason I have given the hotel a poor rating is because the "deluxe" room we had was so quirky and uncomfortable. It had no wardrobes, no bed headboard, no chairs to sit in, nor table, just an unsightly put-me up bed. It had a bath in the room, making it cramped, and seperate toilet, but with the washbasin in the room, compromising hygine!
The analogue satellite TV had poor reception on many of its channels.
The hotel in gereral is tired and in need of a refurb.

Room Tip: Dont book a "deluxe" room!

Hello everybody!
I was living in Phra Nang Inn hotel in this october 2012.
Krabi is calm region without expensive hotels look like as Hilton and etc.
It is real eco tourism area.
When I was looking hotel in Krabi I wanted to live practically on the beach. Main problem was that there is main road and people who live opposite it must go across it for walking on the beach.
You can see on the map how Phra Nang Inn is well situated because the best beach is in the left side near high rocks. It is 5 minute from Phra Nang Inn.
Well. Room in hotel was no big but comfortable.
If you go to Krabi in rain period, you can feel smell of dampness in room.
It is normal because you live on the coast of ocean. Conditioner can solve this problem. There are in room (safe, fan, tv, fridge, free wi fi, sneakers, robes and etc.)
We lived in Phra Nang Inn in 6 days and every day went to nearest islands for swimming. It was were good for rest and relax) To tell the truth I swan on main beach only first time when we arrived on the evening.
My opinion about Phra Nang Inn hotel good hotel for having a holiday on Krabi!

Phra Nang Inn has a great location. The room in which we stayed was on the first floor, overlooking the pool. It had a small patio with the best chairs to sit on. The furniture was ok, nothing fancy, Ac worked fine and the bathroom, allthough it had a bit of a smell was quite clean.
Breakfast buffet is great. The pool is great to use on hot afternoons.
Definately a great choice on Ao Nang!

Room Tip: I suggest choosing a room on the first floor and in the back

A nice quiet place to stay, right in the heart of town but away from the noise from late night bars and traffic. Right out front is a beautiful beach and a few minutes walk takes you to everything you could want, great food, bars, music, boat trips and massage, I recommend massage road just up the hill. The rooms were not luxury but well equiped and clean. Staff were very helpful, efficient and discreet. I found booking outings through the hotel to be cheaper and of better quality than agents in the street. I ahve already booked my next stay there.

Room Tip: upstairs rooms have better views out over beach

This hotel is in the best location imaginable, right on the beach and within walking distance of everything you want in Ao Nang. The hotel itself could probably do with a bit of a touch up in places but is in a really charming tropical style. The pool area is beautiful and a real haven in which to relax. The beach in incredible and the scenery out of this world. Rooms are nice, clean and quirky and I would definitely stay here again. Exactly what we wanted from our holiday
