“Great location, decent stay.”
Reviewed April 22, 2013 via mobile

Stayed at The White 2, walked in on the day. The best thing is the location. Is it right in the middle of the phi phi party district. Bars and pubs all very close. Rooms are nice enough but not spectacular. Service was nice but cold and lacking in English. Would stay here again, unless I could find better.

DO NOT STAY IN THIS PLACE. We were treated badly by the receptionist of The White 2. One of our luggage was shipped by mistake to Bangkok instead of Krabi. We were waiting for a call from Air Asia Krabi. The receptionist just informed us it will be delivered straight to the hotel. We went for an island tour and we were expecting the luggage would be at the hotel by the time we come back. We returned at around 8 PM, we asked her if the luggage is already there. She began shouting at us. She said she instructed us to pick it up at the Tonsai Bay pier that morning. THAT'S NOT WHAT SHE SAID. She advised us it will be delivered straight to The White Hotel. She started ranting and we couldn't understand what she is saying. SHE IS VERY RUDE! Good thing we were able to contact Air Asia Krabi and the luggage was sent back to the Krabi Aiport. We decided to pick it up the next day because we're afraid of having this kind of issues again. That receptionist never helped us. I don't know why we were treated badly. I WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO ANYONE.

The White 2 , where we stayed is bang in the centre Phi Phi.
There are no cars or buses so you walk here, not a problem.
The hotel is down an alley, with a 'Family Mart' store on the corner.
It is far from Breaker's bar, so it is very central.
The staff in the hotel are friendly, the cleaners dont say much to you though.
The room we stayed in on the ground floor had a smell all of its own...
Concrete floors..Shower, toilet & wash basin all in the one room, and I mean , one room , you could sit on the toilet and have a shower at the same time.
The room is best decribed as basic, but functional.
If you are there to party, this will suit you..
If you are not, well, this place may not..
The island of Phi Phi and surroundings are beautiful, so you should not miss it or them.
The island itself is party central after 10pm, so not to everyones taste.
The question weather i would stay at this place again , would be sadly no.

We stayed at the White 2 in villa rooms (on the roof, each with own patio, chairs, and table) for four nights and it felt like heaven. Splurged a bit (about $30/person) but it was worth it! The rooms are all white and are extremely bright due to natural light! Bathrooms are hot because they are basically outside but there is A/C in every room. Right where you want to be on Phi Phi; middle of everything but on a side street making the hotel quiet at night. Staff were not great, didn't use them for much. Very enjoyable overall, would stay there again in a heartbeat!!!

Room Tip: Worth it to spend a bit more for a villa room!

We stayed at The White 2 on Phi Phi for a night in April 2013. Decent cheap accomodation, right in the middle of town but far enough away from the noisy bars. I would definately consider staying here again. Room was a little dirty but still alright.

We stayed in both hotels. The value for money as far as I can tell is good for Phi Phi where everything is quite expensive.

The location of both is good; right in the center of things. The White 1 is a lot more quiet at night but the White 2 has patios on the rooftop. So when you have a room on the top floor that is a nice extra. The bathrooms in those rooms in the white 2 are also slightly bigger, and have a funny outside-y feeling to them; the roof isn't completely attached, so natural ventilation (although this also means the bathrooms are anything but sound proof;))

The bathroom of the room we stayed in in the the white 1 did not really have a separate area for the shower; there was a drain in the corner but it was impossible to shower without getting the toilet/everything else in the room wet.

Beds are made every day and a clean towel is provided. The sheets and towels do have funny stains in them though, but they do appear to be clean. There is also a little safe and a tv available. A disadvantage is that they do not provide you with an extra key, so it is important to be able to coordinate plans.

Thw White is situated in a great location at the heart of everything. The rooms are of adequate size, have air conditioning and very clean. This place represents good value for money for Koh Phi Phi (which is notoriously overpriced in general). I would stay here again.
