This is just insane for the money! I’d have expected to pay double for what it is! It’s a beautiful little cottage like place. Huge bathroom! Comfiest bed ever! Amazing location 2 mins from beach and restaurants! Lovely ladies working there. Clean and sanitary. Could not fault it.

We stayed here for 3 nights..breakfast is included and they will ask you at what time you would.like it to be prepared. A special.mention must go to the massage parlour next to the accomodation. Very professional service, and opens at 6pm. There is a 7 11 convenience store 50 metres away and the location is very close to the main strip and beach. For the price you can't go wrong.

For a budget hotel, this place was great, rooms were spacious & clean, we didn't have any issues with bugs! Its away from the road but in a great location, ATM on the corner & taxis too, the fish restaurant over the road was amazing. The staff were lovely, couldn't fault them at all. We had complimentary breakfast every morning which we enjoyed (due to covid restaurant mainly shut) and they even offered to bring it to our bungalow but after seeing the girls traipse backwards & forwards in the heat we decided not to be lazy & walk the short distance to the restaurant. If you like a traditional market there's one on Saturdays, we just asked the taxi man to take us and gave him a time to pick us up, 400 thb return, it was an eye opener 😀. We would definitely stay here again.

The property reminds me of a cheap motel that you come across in the Florida Keys. It's simple and a bit dated but comfortable enough. The air-conditioning and hot water worked fine and the room and bathroom were clean. At a walk-in rate of 499 THB I really have no complaints particularly when the hotels on either side were 750-800 THB. I could stay here again, no worries.

We booked this hotel expecting something completely different than what we got. The hotel online looked up to date and quaint. What we got was a 70s style patched hotel. Some very funky decorations that didn’t feel like they were sanitary. There were many gaps in the windows and doors which attracted bugs. The toilet seat was clean but didn’t feel like it as it had orange stains on it. The orchids that were real (landscaping)were lovely but some had been replaced with faded plastic ones. Very Tacky. Artificial flowers in the room and patio also tacky. The motel is in dire need of a swimming pool! It is too hot in Krabi to be without one. We were very very disappointed in the lodging. Breakfast was interesting. Some items on the menu were more like lunch choices. Staff were polite but not very friendly. We had one exception in the main office who was very helpful with planning our day trips. We will most likely only visit this area the one time hence our disappointment. Please take my advice and book a Hotel with a pool and watch out for misleading photos online. Luckily our day trips compensated for the inadequacies in the lodging. Location was good.

The rooms are spacious and well-appointed. They are being renovated one piecemeal and seem to be all different. Decor is tasteful, culturally sympathetic and engaging. The walls are recently white-washed. The beds are very comfortable. The management of the facility us almost 100% women, which is a definite positive. The ladies at the desk take their roles seriously and are very helpful. The resort is close to everything. The Krabi Forest Homestay is a misnomer on at least two counts but don't let that deter you from booking here.

The rooms and bathrooms are big. Some are slightly more modern than the others. Beds are big and comfortable. Cleaned every day. Large fridge inside. Great aircon. Couple of seats and a table outside to have a drink at. Had a hiccup which was sorted immediately with a smile - followed up by a bowl of fruit as apology. But they had already resolved brilliantly so we were really impressed by the customer care. Ladies who run reception are helpful and friendly, always busy but still smiling. The place is near to two beaches - walking on the flat, plus many restaurants, bars, minimarts, tour outlets etc. 5 minute walk to get the longtail boat over to Railay Beach. Cheapest accommodation we've stayed so far in SE Asia but that does not take away from the place. We booked for 2 nights, extended by 2 then another 1 😍 Could do with bedside tables, and maybe some English /US news channels on tv - but that's about it! Oh and a pool - but for the price - exceptional!

This is the second stay here and it’s great. Close to all amenities including bars, restaurants, boats for trips, shops and beaches. The best thing about this place is the staff helpful and friendly. Great value, rooms are comfortable and we will stay again. Only negative and we knew this no pool and no coffee or tea in rooms but that’s miner

What a fantastic place! We booked through Airbnb and got a beautiful, clean room and wonderful staff service for around £20 per night. This place has the loveliest, most helpful staff and is in an amazing location. We rented a scooter from the next street and rode 2 minutes to 2 different beaches - by walking, this would be around 10 mins. They also offered every cheap laundry services, massages and replaces towels, water and bedding daily.
