“Good location, great for backpackers”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 19, 2013

Location was the best part; it's just down a side road off the main road, so you're close to everything (could literally walk to anything and everything around the whole island) but being on a side road just 50 meters off the main strip makes it less noisy and less foot traffic. I stayed in a double bed private, it had a tv and fridge which is a nice treat after staying in simple hostel dorms. Perfect for backpackers.

Arrived at kinnaree, liked my room it was basic but air con was good and facilities were clean bed was comfy. Good location and fair value for money, for a backpacker exploring Thailand and just using this as a place to kip down for the night totally recommend no problems !

I've stayed in quite a few cheap guest houses in my time and this really typifies them all- very standard, just about clean enough, decent bed, reasonable price. A little mould in the bathroom or the odd hole in the sheet isn't uncommon.

I also noticed many others saying "disgusting, don't stay, better options out there" for almost all the equivalent lodgings in the area, suggesting actually they're all a bit crap!

This did a job for us at a decent rate, and that's all really

Although this hotel seems to have gotten a lot of bad reviews, our experience of Kinnaree House wasn't bad. The location was great, right next to shops and bar and a short walk to the beach. The room was large and we found it to be clean. Slight annoyance in that our room was connected lengthways with the hallway so we often had people walking past our window.
My only concern was that the entrance to the rooms on our floor was round the corner of the building through an open doorway and it was unmanned so did worry about random people being able to get in but actually had no trouble.

Disgusted with this place, left the room for 10 minutes having placed our ipad under the pillow. Returned to the room whilst the house keepers were changing the sheets and guess what no ipad! Of course they denied all knowledge and suddenly couldn't speak english anymore! Add this to the rats running around above your heads at night and the deafening noise from the bars next door and its not a good place to stay! Avoid like the plague... Literally!

WE were traveling around thailand and only ended up booking acomdation for phi phi on the day which we were going to be arriving there, as the island is very small so accomdation is limited and books out very fast. We had a room which slept 3 room was very small but wasnt unbearable also had air con and free wifi which was a bonus location is good to.

Thia place is good for Phi Phi, but below average on other standards. Try to get a room downstairs because will likely have a bunch of loud Brits like there were when we stayed there. Clean, good AC, etc etc. If it wasn't for the inconsiderate gap year drunkards running around, I'd stay here again.
