“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

We spent 4 nights here and loved it!the owner so nice and,unlike other peoples reviews,did not try to sell us anything, he was happy to just chill with a drink and chat or just look out onto the world with you. Great price for what you get, bit basic but if your travelling se asia you dont carry your bloody silver spoon in your mouth! If you're reading the 2 terrible reviews they are misleading i think the people writing them are far too used to the lap of luxury and have unrealisic expectations! If you want to meet some lovely people who genuinely want to help you and see some amazing sights and smells and lovely tastes go to krabi and rock the jp mansion.

Stay here four nights to have a look round Krabi, it is ideally located just a short walk from everything, and very quite at night for a great sleep. The sourounding areas has everything you will need, we liked the night food market down by the pier, but everywhere we tried served good food. There is a bar, well its really a chill out area for guests where you can just lay back and chat or surf the net. The owners are very helpful and exude a calm which really rubs off on the guests. The AC room we had was of a good standard especially for the price. Recommended

Turned up at this place after booking online and we were pleasantly surprised! We stayed in one of the budget twin rooms with a shared bathroom and we found both the room and the shower room to be exceptionally clean. The guesthouse itself is very well located, just a short walk to the night market and the river. The couple who run the place are also very friendly and happy to help if you need advice on anything. We found it a shame that the bar downstairs was so quiet each nice as, for us, it was a really nice place to chill out but this wasn't a huge problem. I also feel that I should note that one of our beds was very very hard compared to the other, but this wouldn't put me off staying here again were I in the area - the place is still excellent value!

Stopped over at JP mansion on route to phi phi and found it a brilliant choice in Krabi town, short walk from all the action and surrounded by great local restaurants, including a huge local market just behind which really shows a slice of daily local life. The staff and owner, Rin, are very friendly and always happy to help with information and I found their tour prices to be competitive and cheaper than other places. The rooms are all excellent for the price with good selection of cable channels. The downstairs bar area is a great place to meet other travellers or just chill out and plan the rest of your trip and the beer is ridiculously cheap! @expressive-one, this is the tropics, you will find mosquitoes almost everywhere! Certainly not a problem for me during my stay! The friendly atmosphere and engaging locals are worth the money alone. looking forward to returning one day!

A little further away from the main area than most hostels, but still very easy walking distance to the markets and restaurants. The rooms are nice with aircon and ensuites, but the showers are virtually over the toilets and the whole bathroom gets soaked. The reception doesn't always seem to be manned, and they half-heartly try to sell you some tours, but we found cheaper elsewhere. The wifi only works in the reception area so you have to sit down there, and as its open-fronted, there can be a lot of mosquitoes.
Not much to do in Krabi apart from markets and restaurants. If you want a beach you need to go to Ao Nang or Railey.

hello everyone!
our expirience in JP Mansion was more than we expected.. we had a plan to stay in Krabi Town for five days, but in the end we stayed for over 30 days.. rooms are comfortable and very clean, ac or fan, cable tv, hot shower, wifi, and beautiful chilling bar downstairs with great music for every taste.. just next to the guesthouse there is a small shop working 24/7, across the street there is an old temple area with little lake and real jungle in the heart off Krabi town, 5 min walk to the river, if you rent a scooter, its just a few minutes drive to aonang beach, or other beaches which are beautiful and not so crowded with tourists, national park and tiger cave temple are also near. we really enjoyed staying there, great atmosphere, the boss is always there to help with a friendly advice and always says everything is POSSIBLE. it was the best stay of our trip, we recommend it to everyone..

Elect for the A/C! We met J.P. at the bus terminal and he offered his place to us and seemed friendly and we didn't have the energy to go looking. We were pleasantly surprised by one of our favourite stays of our trip! The room was really large and clean, and cool (with the AC). JP spoke good english was very friendly and helpful with directions and travel info. The bar downstairs was super mellow, reasonable and had a great atmosphere. We had a room which faced the street and which I would recommend. Everything we needed was close by including the market and it was a short walk to the water. I would recommend going to the Tiger Temple by moto it was a great day trip!
