Blue Juice: Krabi haven

I didn't actually stay there but the staff were so nice, friendly & helpfull when we went for breakfast a couple of times that we wish we had. If your missing bacon sndwiches, this is the place to go. They also very kindly looked after our rucksacks when we were waiting to leave, so we could go for a wander & do some shopping.

KR Mansion Hotel: Wonderful view of town from the top of the hotel

The town center is in walking distance about 10 minutes. This hotel is the Lonely Planet tip. We was lazy make our choice so we decide for this one and we were satisfied. Room with clean sheeting, well furnished, bathroom and toilet, air-con, room-service – all this for 300 THB / 1 night / 2 persons. The only drawback was that our windows were heading into the garden where lived about 5 roosters that began to crow at 4 AM and at 6 AM start to play the national anthem from the street amplifier

There is wonderful roof garden on the top of the hotel building with a bar. You can have a dinner or beer there while admiring the town panorama.

Grand Mansion Hotel in Krabi Town: Cheap, clean, close to FAST internet.

During off-season you can stay at this hotel, located on the Krabi river for just 300 baht per night for 2 people. My girlfriend and I stayed here many times. It's clean enough and has fan, refrigerator and hot water shower. The staff are nice and there is a place to lock your motorbike with a chain to the outside of the building - so bring a big padlock to do so.

Next to Sprucy Cafe Internet and Coffee shop. VERY fast connection (WIFI) broadband.

Railay Cabana: Cheapest accomodation on Railay!

Railay Cabana is not your typical beach resort. It is located away from the beach on a piece of green lush land. The hut costs TB200 oer night. It is basic but comes with attached bathroom, mosquitoe net (very essential), and a fan. Very secuded location.

KR Mansion Hotel: Don't bother

We were dropped off here by the minibus driver. Before we had even got our stuff out of the minibus we were being asked 'Where are you going tomorrow?' by the member of staff.

I agreed to look at a room. As I walked in I could smell damp. The shower was no longer attached to the wall and the fan looked like it was about to cease up with rust and dirt. Wasn't impressed and I don't like pushy people. It could be said what do you expect for 250B.

Check out my entry for K Guesthouse, for an extra 50B you get a far better deal and it's closer to town.

None, we didn't stay.

K Guesthouse: A little Gem

After seeing a poster advertising this place we thought we would check it out. So glad we did.

This is a family run place in a 2 storey building made of wood. The wooden furnishings tastefully blend in and it feels so cosy here that I am not sure that I want to leave. The bed covers, curtains and wall decorations ensure that the room isn't too dark. Double room, fan, balcony looking onto to the street, fluffy towels and attached bathroom. Very clean. Excellent value for 300B

I love that cosy wood feel.

Central Resort Krabi: Not an easy place to get to!

A word of warning to anybody contemplating staying at this hotel – access to it is not easy! The main way in is via a boat, which we did not like as you can only get in and when the boat is available you could have to wait over an hour each way! The situation is made worse by the fact that they do not have a fixed jetty, instead you have to walk along a floating jetty on which there are no hand rails and of course it moves with each wave. At night the jetty is not even lit! When in Thailand or anywhere for that matter we like to go to the local restaurants, food stalls and bars eating as little as possible in the hotel. Due to the restrictions imposed by the boat only access and the fear of navigating the floating walkway after a few drinks in the dark (and possibly during thunder showers) we were faced with the option of staying the hotel all the time or checking out early to find alternative accommodation – we opted for the latter after one night. Other reasons for checking out included the fact that service in the Thai was painfully slow, when the food did come it was the wrong dish and then they got the bill wrong! We also paid the option for Club access for an extra 1500 THB per night but we were not impressed with the Club Lounge. Also the restaurant options did not impress – especially when compared to all the choice available in Ao Nang. The swimming pool looked nice but not that big for the size of hotel. The one redeeming feature was the quality of the Spa room which was about the best hotel room we have stayed in, the Jacuzzi and sun loungers on the balcony being a very nice touch. At the end of the day, if you want to stay in a luxury prison then this is the place for you. There is a walkway to Ao Nang, but it is a steep and narrow path and not an easy option.

The boat only access and floating jetty.

Budget Hotel: View Point resort at Railay

Personally my stay in view point resort is not as pleasant. We had a standard room with air-conditioning at the lower floors. There wasnt much room left so we were located at a dark corner. So it felt alittle scary. The rooms wasnt clear up when we were told to check in at 2 pm, the next day the room wasnt clear up too.. so there wasnt any fresh towers for us. So it was disappoiinting.

The location of the viewpoint is rather inaccessible. The walk from west raliey was rather long, compared to neighbouring resorts like yaya and diamond resort.

We paid fot 1500bht per night. Thus given the bugdet you dont get much of a nice view, at east raliay.

Jinda Guesthouse: Just satisfied

I believe this guesthouse is just as good as any other guesthouse you find in Ao Nang Beach. Not much of comments but it's good enough and the guesthouse owner, Wat, is kind you offer you cheap solutions. It costs 700 Baht per night for a double bed, with a/c and hot shower + tv (again haha, was surprised that they have Channel News Asia). Linked to thier Jinda restaurant, you could try some local delights with quite stunning pictures hanging on the wall.

Ya Ya Bungalow (Rai Ley East Beach): Not for the faint hearted?

Haha. Scared you didn't I? Looks slightly rundown , probably because it was made of wood and the steps were quite steep, so you gotta watch out if you carry a heavy backpack.

My friend and I booked the room from the airport, so it was kind of a disappointment even though it was only 500 Baht per night. There was a mini balcony but it sure looks like anyone could climb in - so safety was our issue. The double bed sure looks and feels kind of sandy... And there are no hot showers no cupboards to hang your wet clothes - so unless you don't have a choice, this is your last resort. The owners were nice and understanding but somehow we still didn't like the accomodation and packed up and left for another more conducive place. They have quite nice breakfast though.

Perhaps I should have stayed for the night to see how good the room had performed but my friend and I could take it no more, after all we are on a vacation. heh.... Otherwise, it's really ok to stay there.

They do have air-conditioned rooms but were fully taken.

Moral of the story - see first before you decide to make payment - otherwise money is forfeited and your penalty is greater.

P.K. Mansion: definately accommodating

This place was quite good. Nothing amazing but they went out of there way to help us. We wanted the three of us in one room so they dragged us in an extra mansion and threw in air conditioning.
Nice people.

Hidden away but beside a cool Irish pub. HMMM YUMMY PIES.

Southland House: Comfortable guest-house

We walked in to this Chinese-owned resort with an owner who can speak Mandarin, so that was pretty convenient. We had a room with three beds, aircon, tv (with only two channels but better than nothing), hot water, and the room was pretty big and clean, for like 500 baht (low season)

Location's great, right in the middle of the main road of Ao-Nang Beach.

Laughing Gecko

The Laughing Gecko was a fantastic experience. The owners were very welcoming and friendly. They also have excellent dinners which they provide for a minimal fee every night. It is very close to the beach and it is just on the outskirts of Ao Nang. My bamboo hut was cheap and very comfortable. I arrived intending to stay the night and ended up staying for a week. Without a doubt the Laughing Gecko was my best experience in Thailand. Highly recommended!

Oa Nang Hotel: Don't take the first hotel offered

This was the cheapest and nicest budget room we found...but you have to look for it, it is kind of hidden!

The best part was they offered $2 (Cdn) laundry service! And after travelling in the same three outfits for a month, clean clothes are more appreciated!

The view is not great, and the stairs are a bit tricky at 2 or 3 am. but the service was awesome and the rooms great (coffee maker, bottled water, air, no geckos, etc.)
