- Wonderful rooms, just perfect for a cuple, very romantic
- Nice located
- Roof pool, lounge and Bar
- Friendly, helpful, clean
- Do not go north at the beach; you will feel sorry and sad
- Go to the bazar and buy the nicest drapery, soap an enjoy best food
- We at an intire fish for 140 bath - no english possible - and we loved it.
- Take the "real royal train" from Bangkok to come here. 70 bath for two. The nicest travel in a train you will ever experience: everithing is made out of wood inside, pass through rice fields, monks reading and meditating, open windows and open doors all trough over the train. Bether than every coffee-comercial. Wind, spices from kitchens you pass by, tempels, palm tree, wather buffalos... and and and.

We didn't like the beach, especially north. Dirty water, stones, glass, waste, soap/foam and more - you do not want to know - from the hotels. Did not like to walk into poor peoples privacy. They live at the beach and i felt disturbing them; they felt observed. I didn't mean it; felt like a tourist enjoing waching poor people. Everyone is aware about the poorness in Thailand. But it isn't necessary to walk by as if they would be part of a zoo.

Room Tip: We had room number 305 - sideview. Quiet, romantic, clean, perfect.

Calelarn Hotel is located 5 minutes walk from the night market and near a lot of shops, massages and beauty salons - however it's quite a trek to the beach. The road it's on couldn't really be described as quiet either, so the location is only good for those who want to be right by the night market.

The hotel itself has nice, tasteful decor throughout and it seems modern and newly decorated, but also has a classical Thai feel to it.Overall it's a very pleasant place to walk around.

One of the best facilities of the hotel is the pool on the roof, with a great view over Hua Hin and a raised jacuzzi which kids can enjoy jumping off into the main pool (which is perfectly safe, by the way, as the jacuzzi overhangs the pool and the depth is 1.7m at this point). There is also a swim up bar, but strangely no staff are ever there to serve guests, despite the pool being quite busy - we went back to use our room's phone to call someone up, but then when the staff came there were no drinks in the bar to serve! To the great credit of the staff, he went outside and bought beers for us from a nearby shop, but then when we went to the pool the next day, still no staff or drinks... you'd have thought that they would have remedied this situation after the first time.

The rooms are fine with a large, comfortable bed and very nicely decorated. Bathrooms are good with a nice rain-effect shower.

We didn't try the hotel's restaurant apart from breakfast (we tried to have lunch there on the first day but it was closed). The breakfast was a bit of a disappointment, with instant coffee, no fresh coffee available, boiled ham and frankfurter style sausages, eggs, and not much else - there were a few items geared towards Thai or other Asian guests such as green curry and sweet and sour chicken, but the selection for western guests was quite limited.

Service was friendly and very helpful, with examples such as the beers in the pool as mentioned earlier showing that they're willing to go the extra mile to help guests feel welcome and comfortable.

Overall, Chalelarn Hotel is good value for the rates charged, and a good option for people who don't need to stay right on the beach.

Chalelarn Hotel Hua Hin Thailand
A modern, mid-priced hotel, doing all the right things.

Situated mid-way between Hua Hin’s main road and the beach, Chalelarn Hotel [not to be confused with Baan Chalelarn Hotel, not far away] at 53/1 Soi Phaenphan, Naepkhahat Rd, may look sterile and modern from outside, however the interior has been gracefully decorated to give the impression of thoughtful consideration to art and culture.
Reception staff were efficient, not effusive…and check-in was quick. Our room was adequate in size, pleasantly decorated and lit. Bathroom was modern, and stocked with good towels. Large bed provided good quality sleep.

For its size this hotel provides amazing rooftop pool area. Nice little spa sits high over the good-sized pool, looking out to sea. A small bar and lounging area. At other end, lots of timber tables looked out over town and hills. Great viewing platform.
Breakfast area was adequate, but surprisingly limited in variety of fare to eat.

Eating…forget about the tourist rip-off night market. Although many more restaurants have opened there over the last few years, prices do not equate to quality, or value for money. Still nice to wander the stalls for bargains and bartering. A ten-minute walk from the hotel, over the main central road, towards the railway station.

Eating….right out front of hotel is superb eating in the cosy night market, for those willing to accept eating with the locals. A man barbeques whole fish to order…a fifteen minute wait, whilst his wife sets the table with utensils and condiments. Other stalls offer all sorts of excellent Thai food, at local prices.
Almost at the hotel front door was a tiny stall with a man making deep-fried spring rolls…with banana inside! Delicious!. 7-Eleven and Family stores surround the hotel.

For wine lovers…Central Wine Cellars at Soi 55/1 has large selection at reasonable prices. 5 minutes from hotel towards main central road.
Although very attentive and efficient, if staff only smiled a bit and seemed happy in their work, it would ensure Chalelarn Hotel would achieve the highest rating, as the internal physical appearance and amenities are great.

We stayed here for 7 nights at end of February 2013 and to be honest I have nothing but praise for the hotel. Location is perfect, close to the night market and with sea view.
Our room was the suite and was lovely, with double shower and jacuzzi. It was spotlessly clean at all times. Breakfast was just right, ok it wasn't a huge buffet but there was enough to keep most people happy.
The rooftop pool was a little oasis in the middle of the city and was perfect to relax. the views were wonderful. This was our second time in Hua Hin, the first time we stayed at the Dusit Thani which was fabulous but a little out of town. We wanted to stay in town this time and were not disappointed. I even saw a monkey walking along the power cables directly outside the dining room, brilliant!
Everyone we spoke to in the hotel was delighted with it and felt they had found a little gem, and we couldn't agree more.

Room Tip: Corner suites have a huge shower and jacuzzi and if you're 4th floor or above you will get a sea view.

Stayed here for 2 nights in mid February 2013. Discounting the heavyweights (i.e. Hilton) by the beachfront, this is probably the best in Hua Hin town (compared to the other small hotels in the area). Boutique-feel and looks like it has been newly refurbished. Pleasant, clean and value for money (about USD82 per night). Very near to night market and local eateries, though it's a five-minute walk to the closest beach. Cons: swimming pool water doesn't look very clean and there are no coffee-making facility in-room. Lots of mosquitos in the hotel and room -- this is the worst complaint I can think of but in general there seems to be mosquitos everywhere around the town area.

Room Tip: Stay at the 7th floor for easy access to rooftop pool.
