Karoon Hut Guesthouse
Ranked #212 of 315 Hua Hin B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 December 2014

Boys and girls, it finally happened.
I got robbed.

Two years, 11 countries, 17 million opportunities, today my number came up.
Left the room at 12, returned at 2pm, discovered cash missing at 2:30, police report filed at 3:00. Drowned our sorrows at 3:15, laughed ourselves silly by 5:15.

Travel insurance means you don't have to give a darn about bumps in the road.

However, that said, they were much more concerned about not being held liable, than preventing this happen to others. My concern is that you should learn from our misfortunate and save yourself from the same experience.

P.S. After filing the police report, my friend discovered the few dollars that was left in her backpack while we filed the police report, missing. This means, they knew they had nothing left to lose, so came back and cleaned out all that remained.

Please, do NOT come to this place. We were lucky, because we had the foresight to purchase travel insurance, but save yourself the hassle, stay somewhere else.

Room Tip: Avoid the rooms where the peeling paint doesn't fall on your bed at 0500AM. Twice.

If you are travelling on a tight budget this guest house is fine. So there are cracks in the floor boards but it is a converted pier.

The rooms are small and basic. The sheets aren't crisp white however they are clean and the beds reasonable comfortable. There is a nice breeze coming off the sea so a fan was more than adequate and there is plenty of hot water.

The rooms are close to everything and the staff were polite and friendly. There is a big terrace overlooking the sea at the end of the rooms which is great to relax.

For £6 a night what more do you want.?

Such an awful experience. Very unfriendly staff. WiFi didn't work. Dirty rooms, dirty bedsheets. The only good things is localisation and big terrace at the end of the hallway. Not worth that kind of money.

It's the best value in Hua Hin given the price and location. You are right in the middle of everything, the night market is just around the corner with the beach 50 meters away. The famous Hilton night life area is a 3 minute stroll. At the top of the road you can take a 10baht bus to anywhere in Hua Hin or a 25bhat bus to Cha'am or Petchauburi or minibus down to Pranburi. For these reasons if you do not have your own transport it makes an excellent base. Excellent food and massage options all round the hotel including famous Hua Hin seafood. It is a charming guest house built on a wooden jetty over the sea, you will drift away to sleep with the sound of rolling waves underneath and in the morning you can wake up and have breakfast in the restaurant overlooking the sea!! It is a heritage building, so not everything is perfect as others have stated but you wont find better value in this area of Hua Hin. If you are on a budget and want to get the most out of a short stay here, this is the place for you. The staff are very kind and happy to help and answer questions (especially the Thai/French owners who speak perfect English), which makes a real difference to any stay. They make you feel very welcome and at home and you feel you can trust them. I don't really understand the negative reviews, but I think some people are expecting too much for their money.

Awful place, is very dirty, cracks in the floorboards that let bugs into ur room, there is stains on the sheets, no aircon just a great huge fan which takes up most of the room, which the rooms aren't actually that big! It's so dank and dark in the rooms that it's has this creepy vibe about it. If your a light sleeper pack some ear plugs, I love the sound of the sea but when it's thrashing underneath you isn't relaxing at all! And it's soooooo loud!! The restaurant at the end is nice, it does have lovely views.
