Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed January 23, 2012

Alis hotel is located in quiet street but not far away from main street. You can walk everywhere you need. The beach is 10min slow walking. Aonang is town,it has market in the evening, but it's far away from Alis hotel, it's on other side of Aonang (you can hire motorbike). Aonang it's not part of Krabi town, Krabi town is 20 min driving.

Main street is full of shops, restaurants and spas, the stollholders will be inviting you to their shops, which was a little bit annoying, but it you can buy here cheap clothes, bikini, handbags, etc,(cheaper then in Phuket) Everything is fake. Bars are also there, live music and disco after noon.

Massage start from 200THB. Motorbike is possible to get from 200THB per day + petrol, which was about 150THB for all day travelling.

Food was excellent and very spicy. If you don't like hot food, always say NOT SPICY, if you say little bit, you will be in fire. We don't mind spicy food, but some of the dishes we couldn't finish. We have eaten on the streets and food was better then in restaurants and also much cheaper. Just our opinion,

Alis hotel is small and quiet hotel. It wasn't in condition, it wasn't perfectly clean but just because the walls weren't painted, air humidity is high and it affect bathrooms, walls etc. but we loved this hotel. Personal is soooo kind. Thai people are always in good mood and they have great humour. The pool has brown tiles, that is why it looks dirty, as one of the review wrote. Alis hotel don't have own restaurant, just breakfast. We think it was good value of money. I think it's not nessary to pay extra for spa, which means to have wooden bath in room. It' s better to spend money for spa and massages outside.
Tea and coffee in the room was free, everthing else - coke, water, beer - were charged.

Breakfast was limited choice. There were jams, toasts (white and wholemeal), croissant, fruit, eggs, juices, milk, black tea and some of their sausages.

Rooms were cleaned every day, clean towels everyday, enough space, large bed, Air conditioning + air fun. Beach mat was available, which you not find in Phuket. In Phuket you have to pay for for deck chair (100THB per day/person- Patong beach).

We had some of the trips, which Thailand is rich for that. We have been on Railay beach, Phi phi island, elephant ride (we didn't like, it was weird), Tiger cave (excellent), Krabi town, Krabi night market (excellent), Bang Klong beach (excelent, nobody there, they just were building new hotel), canoe trip (excellent), lagoon, natural spring falls (excellent) and Phuket island. We were always lucky for tourist guides. We took twice taxi, same guy, his name is 'TUK', he walks with a limp. He was excellent, he took us everywhere we wanted, he stopped everywhere we wanted, even when our trip took all day. we always discuss price with him (we were four people). He has very good English and he told us a lot about Thailand. Most of people in restaurants didn't have so good English as him.

PHUKET - we have been in Phuket and we didn't like it, it is really crowded and if you want to spend holiday on the beach and in bars, go there. Bars are on every step. We found out that Phuket is more expensive then Aonang. You even have to pay for toilet (just 10THB, nothing, but...)

If you want to ask me about anything, please contact me.

Room Tip: We had room on the same level with pool, which was good advatege. You don't have to walk stair w...

Actually I visited this hotel in Nov 2008 but still wish to share the experience at here^^
If you wish to have a relax holiday, you will definitely love Alis.
Alis located in a quiet street, but that doesn't mean it is far away from the main street of Aonang, everything is within walking distance.
The room is clean, tidy & cozy but I dont like their light in the night, it is abit dark.
I'm delighted by their bathroom with rainforest shower head, enjoy showering evertime :p
However there are some part the hotel would need to improve: (1) the breakfast with limited choices (2) mosquito or fly at the lobby & dining area
Overall Alis would be a nice boutique hotel which I will recommend!!

Based on reviews on booking.com we made a reservation but it turned out to be a big dissapointment! Old hotel, dirty, very dirty pool (green and black). The room was spacy but doors couldn't close, airconditioning was leaking and vaporizing/damping, wooden bath for which we paid extra didn't function but above all the room was smelling terribly!! They masked the dirty and humid smell with a very strong chemical soap smell. After complaining the staff agreed to our complaints and offered us another room, we checked 4 rooms... all smelled terrible, this time without the soap flavor.... we did not accept the other rooms offered which the staff could agree to... after calling with the owner in Bangkok no refund was "possible".... we checked out....

We stayed here for two nights in early November 2011. It was a last minute booking due to the flooding situation in Bangkok we couldn't go to our original prebooked hotel and had to take this place in order not to loose money spent with travel operator
Firstly Ao Nang itself isn't much of a destination, pay the extra baht and go to Phi Phi, Railey or Koh Lanta which are all easily accessible and heaps nicer.
The hotel itself was by far the most pricey place we stayed on our 1 month stay in Thailand and also the poorest value for money.
Our room wasn't particularly clean, marks on the toilet and what looked like a bloodstain on the shower curtain. At breakfast we also noticed the cutlery provided was filthy and the pool didn't look particularly clean either. Breakfast really wasn't that great.
The price per night should indicate a better standard than this. We got better value everywhere else we went.

The hotel was like a abandoned dilapilated hotel with broken woodeb bathtub!
No signs of upgrading and seems that we have booked the whole hotel as we are the only occupants when we checked in! The Hotel reception was very helpful and friendly of cos .... Normally we should get upgraded to better room but instead we paid for the most expensive room and we have to request to downgrade to a cheaper room bcos aircom wasnt working and bathtub cant be used and aso the overhead rain shower wasnt functioning well w/o water coming out and leaking out instead!
Upon booking (Very fast in getting the transaction done and payment made as we cancelled two nights and they acknowledge refund and been more than 6 weeks no news and email from them when we returned even when we email them to enquire about the refund... Haiz. Wonder will the refund for 2 nights be back....

The rooms are clean and tidy but the rest of the hotel does need a bit of love and tender care. The floors around the pool area need urgently a wash and the bathrooms around the pool area and lobby need to be cleaned and the garbage cans collected.

It is really sad as the hotel itself is beautiful, it has an open area when you go through the lobby which is very inviting, but when you start going up the stairs towards your room and pass through the pool, you start noticing these little things. I am not a picky person, but this was a bit much.

I hope that the management team at the hotel get a chance to read this review and do something about it, because as I say the hotel is beautiful and the staff is very friendly, but when you see things like this, it makes you go hmm!

There were a few days were the some of the fruit platters during breakfast were full of tiny ants. Luckily they did clean everything up after it was pointed out to them.

I paid over 2,000 THB a night for a room which was not worth it. I have stayed at a cheaper hotel and had much better service. Thank god I only stayed for 1 night otherwise I would be quite depressed. The design and decors are lovely. However, the pool was dirty which is very unfortunate because it's located on the rooftop and I was really looking forward to just laying out by the pool. The hallway could use some more lights because it's a bit dark during the day. The breakfast selection was poor. They had yakisoba (Fried noodle), sausages, cornflakes, salad, yogurt, and toasts for breakfast. The AC in the room was very loud to the point that I had to turn it off periodically throughout the night. My room was right next to the janitor's closet and they left the door opened all the time for some reason. The best part about the hotel is probably the free 24/7 high speed internet, which is allowing me to write this review at the moment.
