We stayed there 2 nights during our South-East-Asia-Trip in February. We used Ao Nang as a base for visiting nearby islands.
We choose this hotel for it`s central location in Ao Nang. It is about 50 m from the beach, where the Longtail- boats leaving for Railey and Tonsai. Kepp in mind that the beach in Ao Nang is not really suitable for swimming, because all the boats leave from there. Ao Nang fits perfectly as a base for exploring the surrounding area an islands. If you want to spend a day on the beach, take a 10 minutes boat ride to Railey, where you will find one of Krabi`s most scenic beach!
Arriving at Ao Nang Palace was very easy. We took a "songthaew" from Krabi bus station, which needs about half an hour and deposed us 20 m from the hotel. Check in was fast and easy, but i didn`t accept the room we where given, because towels, sheets and even the tea cups where dirty, so we where moved to another room, which was at least not dirty but it turns out that the basin was leaky resulting in a constantly wet floor in the bath. Due to the reason that we have booked this hotel only for 2 nights, we decided to spend the rest of our stay in Ao Nang definitely at a other place, so we kept this room.
Another reason why we booked this hotel was it`s pool, but it turns out that the water temperature was about 30° so it was no refreshment at all.
The included breakfast was also poor for the hotels price. It was served in a tent in the garden!!! What you get is Toast, Yam, Eggs, something which should be coffee, the cheapest black tea available and if you lucky there are a few fruits left.
My advice: Skip this hotel! We payed 1800 bht per night, but finding another place on site with the same facilities except the pool for 500-1000 bht per night was no problem at all, even we where there in high season.
