Ban To Guest House
Ranked #43 of 329 Krabi Town B&B and Inns
Reviewed January 2, 2014 via mobile

We stayed there only one night but it was really great. The room was lovely with a balcony, a fan and a very hot water for shower. Owners were very kind. You can take your breakfest or eat there. Just the day before, we stayed in another guesthouse near to it for almost the same price and it was horrible comparing to Banto.
In addition, the guesthouse is not very far from the center.
Really, we recommend this guesthouse!!

If you're on a budget, I would say that this is THE place to stay. It's a little difficult to find, but actually quite central.
Rooms are basic but clean, with a decent shower and tv.
What I would say sets this place apart however, is the owner. She really is incredibly helpful - and helped us get the most out of our few days in Krabi Town - we went bot sea kayaking and over to Railay Beach, all organised by her for next to nothing.
If other inn owners were this chilled out, funny and helpful, travelling would never become stressful :)
Overall a great place.

We arrived in Krabi at the port and found it a little difficult to find this hostel which is down a back alley but once we found it we were greeted warmly.

We got into our room and it was large and tidy but smelt of damp (we were in room A1). It has a ceiling fan and you cannot leave the windows open during the night as its on the ground floor, so this didnt help.

The shower was hot and it was pleasant place to stay for 2 nights.

The food was good and well priced in the cafe and it has good internet.

I would recommend this place but just be aware you are getting a low budget room which may or may not smell of damp - maybe go for the air con rooms?

Just one more thing. The owner is very helpful in organizing trips but beware that she may automatically think you are able to spend lots. See if you can do it yourself first.

Room Tip: Maybe go for a air con room.

A perfect location, very relaxing and quiet, out of the way of the more touristic part of town !
Very close to the harbour for food market and boats to Ao Nang.
The rooms are basic but all you need, your host and hostess are so friendly and welcoming but just enough to be respectful!
A typical guest house in my opinion , very knowledgeable hosts with a family vibe !
We got picked up from the airport for 300 baht and you can rent mopeds to get around and book your trips to the islands from here to with a good company for a good price
Altogether a really nice place to spend a weekend

Great location between local and backpacker areas. Easy to find although the lane from backpacker area was a bit dark at night.

Room was large and clean. Towels and room service everyday if requested. Wifi worked in room. Banana shakes tasty and reasonably priced (didn't try the food).

The owner is very helpful and knowledgable. We booked the 4 Iskand tour through her, which was ok. There is a do your own washing, washing machine about two minutes from the guesthouse where you can do 7kg for 20baht.

Krabi is a great town to relax ESP by the park.

We would stay here again.

Stayed at Ban To for 4 nights in an A/C room for 550 per night, low season, the owners are very friendly and help as much as possible, we booked a cooking class, 4 islands tour and a half day kayaking trip all through the guesthouse, they were all spot on too, breakfast was pretty standard but cheap and convenient for early starts, would stay here again for sure.

My husband and I just stayed 1 night on our way between Ko Samui and Ko Phi Phi. Great guesthouse and very friendly family running it. We even got free pickup from bus station/office (Lomprayah). Away from main roads so nice and quiet but easy walk to all main places. Also nice little restaurant onsite. Good value too, we had dinner and breakfast for 2 (inc drinks) and only 325 baht in total. Large room with tv, ac, strong shower and nice balcony to sit out. They also helped arrange onward ferry ticket to phi phi.
