“Comfortable, clean and quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2013 via mobile

We had booked to stay 3 nights but extended our stay.

The room was large with a very comfy bed plus duvet. Air con was good. The wifi worked well - best time is midday when I could watch series online. The balcony was great and the view of the sea and the street made for great relaxation and people watching.

The shower water wasn't hot and the balcony door didn't lock very well. A suggestion for improvement would be a kettle in the room.

The hotel had free to use beach mats, hats, umbrellas and beach toys, which was great.

The staff were plesant and helpful although kept laughing at us.

If you are going to stay here pay the extra for the balcony rooms on a higher floor, it makes a difference especially if you are caught in the monsoon rains for 36 hours or more.

Easygoing, quiet, relaxed, slightly off the noise main road. Best imaginable hotel for under $20 night. Free wifi included. I've paid double in most places in Thailand and the hotels were not this functional.

Very good/excellent. No complaints about this place in any way. Its a family run place, so you do get close personal attention. Aircon and fridge with free water daily - as is the case with a lot of places in Phuket. Wifi works. You pay a little to use their computers. Good central location,just a few minutes walk to beach and lots of restaurants nearby. Restaurant serves good breakfast. Free use of umbrellas,beach mats and hats for your trips to the beaches/islands. And you can also drink cheap beer from their fridge at reception.
Overall very good value for money - no wonder it was nearly always full when we were there.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs on the right side are brighter. Ground floor rooms a bit darker.

We had a pleasant stay in Smile Hotel this May 11 - 13. Their staffs are really friendly and helpful. Budget hotel but 5 stars service. They do provide free mat, hat, umbrella etc, that's really thoughtful. Walking distance to beach and shop lot nearby, 7-11, Starbucks, McDonald etc. Very satisfied stay!

So I have just spent a week in Krabi and I wasnt dissapointed. The hotel was exactly what it said on th tin! Clean room with a towel change every day and fresh water. I stayed 6 nights and my sheets werent changed but as it was only me it wasnt a big deal. It did say the room had a kettle but didnt and although I was looking forward to a nice cuppa I wasnt sad enough to complain. The staff were friendly enough but didnt blow me away like the other reviews said and even though I expressed interest in tours they didnt really help me sort anything. For the money I was very very happy as location was ace and the room was big and clean, I would definately stay here again as I know the standard to expect and it did not exceed or dissapoint my expectations.

Had an excellent experience in Ao Nang and Smile hotel. The staff is the freandliest and always smiling bunch. Location right in the centre, close to restaurants, stands and the famous Mr Cock's Street Bar! :). Many tours to be bought at the hotel reception with bottom prices. All the best to this hotel!!

This hotel was great value for money. It was average price and excellent location, close to the beach and shops and everything just a short walk away.

The room was large enough and the bed comfortable. The breakfast so-so...nothing was outstanding but the point was we came to explore and spent all our time at the beach, taking tours and seeing the sites.

For value-for-money this place filled the spot. The beach is what you come here for anyway, and this hotel is fine for the average traveller.
