“Perfect Location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

I did a lot of research before our trip to Thailand and read numerous TA reviews. I am very glad that we chose this hotel. We stayed for 3 nights at the end of our two week trip in Thailand. The room was just what we needed-perfect size, VERY close to everything, clean, and AC. The staff was very helpful, they helped us book an Elephant Trekking tour for only 500 baht, where all other places wanted at least 800 baht for the same tour. So that was very nice of them. The only reason I didn't give them five stars was because of the situation with our airport transfer. Our plane was departing at 7.55 so we had booked a taxi with the front desk for 5.30. NO taxi showed up and we had to call and buzz the hotel (since the doors were locked and we had left the keys inside since we checked out and the front desk didn't open till 7). After buzzing and calling, finally at 6.00 one of the hotel workers came to the front door and we told him that we were waiting for our taxi and he ended up driving us. I am not sure if he was suppose to drive us in the beginning and maybe that he overslept? Anyways, everything worked out in the end, but it was just very stressful and lots of fast driving! I would definitely recommend staying at this hotel. Its a great price and perfect location. To me it makes more sense to book at a hotel like this, rather than book one of the larger hotels on the beach, because the Ao Nang beach isn't even that nice and you will most likely end up taking a longtail boat to another beach. I would stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling to Ao Nang.

Stayed here one night before we went to koh lanta. Room was very big and clean. They have a communal computer you can use which was useful as their wifi didn't work all the time. All in all I would return for a few more nights as the location was perfect!

We stayed here twice while visiting the Thai islands. The first time was much better than the second. The good - the rooms with a view out are nice, clean and spacious. The bad - the rooms without a view are dark, and the one we had was overpriced for what it was. My issue with this hotel is the staff - they are friendly when they want your money to book anything, or to check you in - but completely useless if you have a problem. The wifi wouldn't work for me so I asked if they could help - I was just told by the staff at the front counter that 'mine works' and then ignored. When I asked again they said the wifi works - sometimes, and sometimes it doesn't - try and use the wifi of the hotel next door!! Their attitude was terrible, the staff just talked to each other in thai and laughed about it. I wouldn't stay here - simply because if you have any issues they just don't care - for the money I'm sure there is much better in Ao nang.

J Hotel was perfect for the semi-budget/mid-range traveller looking for basic accommodations. But if you’re looking for perfection or a “western equivalent” hotel experience, this is not your place. It’s got AC, fridge, TV. Nothing fancy, but comfortable. Great location near the beach (5 min walk) and near good street food and bars. It’s perfect for the price – We paid 900 b or like $30 Canadian.
The girl up front was very helpful and always smiling. The man (manager) was also quite helpful as his English was pretty good. We booked a boat trip and our ferry to Lanta through the front desk and both were seamless.
Would totally recommend.

The hotel did not have our reservation! Although we had booked through Agoda and fully paid for it. After a lot of discussion, we were offered the sister hotel J. Mansion. We had to lug our heavy baggage all the way up 4 floors as the hotel did not have a lift.

The rooms were nice and clean with all basic amenities provided. The staff were helpful and very informative. Breakfast is available at additional costs. Very close to the beach and right in the middle of the main shopping and dining area. There is a scooter for hire shop just next to the hotel.

Please note: You are not allowed to enter the hotel with you footwear. You will need to leave them at frontdesk whenever you get back to your rooms. You are allowed to carry them back only in the night once the front desk is closed.

I stayed in this hotel in OCtober'2011. Came to Krabi for my honeymoon with my wife. The manager and his staff are all very helpful with directions and recommendations. Room is very clean, spacious and wehave the sea-view room.
This hotel wasn't really very expensive and was right smack in the shopping streets.
Very convenient to get food and to order your tours for the next day.
I will definitely stay here again the next time I go to Krabi again!
