The Location is very good,directly at the beach so in the morning you wake up to the peaceful sound of the sea. This Hotel perfect for a nice getaway from the stressful city. I had a Beachfront room,i can recommend to 100% the other rooms are not directly at the beach but not even a 2 Minute walk away so thats more than okay also. The room i had was very nice and more than enough for a relaxing stay,the room had all you need,including a mini bar with more than fair prices! The room was very clean and the Internet is also very good and stable (that was not in every Hotel if stayed the case) The breakfast was good and its is nice when entering the Front Desk area and you every Morning get greeted by a smiling and friendly staff Member. All in all i can fully recommend this Hotel and going to stay there on my next Trip to Hua Hin for sure!
This place is not luxury but comfort and no t far from cicada market but cannot work if you need to work maybe 20 minutes .Room is clean but service is not good enough . No convenient store near the hotel or in the hotel.
We booked this hotel day-of after struggling to find a reasonably priced beach place in this area. We were told Katriab was the nicer beach. First, (no fault of the hotel) the beach here is nice when the tide goes out but at high tide there is no beach to be seen. We stayed in the 1 bedroom house. I was told there would be two beds and they could bring in an additional mattress (they knew we had 6 people). The one bed was very nice and comfortable. The other bed was a ripped futon--barely double size--that they put a pad on. The "mattresses" were just thin pads on the floor. The location of the house was down a back alley near a noisy restaurant and some bad smells. Lots of staff roaming around and yet no one seemed to know we were coming when we arrived and things didn't seem super organized. For what we were asked to pay--3500 baht/night--we were really disappointed.
My couple and I got this room by accidentally. The staff showed us the room near beach front and we fell in love this room so much. The room is very close to the beach and we could hear the sound of the sea all night!!! Cement bathroom is quite good which seperate toilet and shower room but it is quite dark at night eventhough we turned on the light. Bedroom is good as per normal resort standard and it is decorated with mosquito net (in Thai we call "Mung") as the name of this resort. However, the staff service is very poor. At first, we didnot know that this resort has other house at road side and rooms are more cheaper. Staff suggested us to walk to find by ourself and we cannot find it. We were disppointed. So we had to go back to beach house office and decided to choose beach house instead because the room is fantastic eventhough it was overbudget we had. Internet is very poor. I had tried many time to connect Wi Fi but it didn't work. I called to staff but they didn't pay attention to even check for me. TV signal is suck too!!! I cannot watch world cup any more!!!! Overall, we impressed the room so much and it was valuable every baht I spent but not for the staff and their poor service.
We stayed at Room 201, beachfront bungalow. Room was clean and good, located right on the beachfront. Hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. I would say the price is value for money. Would love to stay here again.
Right on the beach of Hua Hin. Step out of your room on the sand and within a few meters jump into the sea. What more can you wish? Nice decorated rooms, good shower and good bed. Breakfast maybe not the best in town but fair enough. Location makes the price; a simular hotel on different location should be 25% cheaper but ... right on the beach it's worth to pay a bit more... Hua Hin is a nice place for people that like to have a beach and or quiet holiday. Clean beaches and plenty of good fish restaurants along the beach
Baan Kang Mung by the Beach In terms of simple, nature-inspired decor, Baan Kang Mung is one of the loveliest surprises of a guest house. I admit that upon arrival, I was quite disappointed that the room reserved called "Baan Kang Mung By the Beach" on booking.com overlooked a busy Hua-Hin street rather than "By the Beach" as the booking name implied The operation is split between two buildings separated by a series of sois (alleys); one building houses the beach-front bungalows and the other site is situated on the busy main street of Hua Hin. Upon check-in, if you want to change to a bungalow, it is an additional $50-100 depending on the season. Speaking with staff, I emphasized the confusion from the website. When I arrived, the hotel restaurant and other neighborhood eateries were closed; I'm ever-grateful the gracious staff offered to take me on her motorbike to pick-up provisions for the evening. Once shown to the street-side room, I was quite pleased by the minimalist bamboo and wooden decor blending naturally with the cream-colored walls. The sizable bathroom had a rounded blue-bowl sink, though lacked shelf-space and place to hang the towel. Bamboo-basketed CFL light bulbs kept the room in understatedly well-lit, though there were some problems with the bedside lamps working initially and staff was prompt in fixing them. Windows are draped with a cream canvas which lend a nice dappled lighting effect to the wood floors. The beds are draped with mosquito netting that you may choose to use or leave open for a canopied effect. I stayed here during the US elections, which I watched on the room TV with clear picture and via internet on my laptop with no wifi disruption. I was on the second floor with a narrow porch overlooking the alley leading to the busy main road. Originally, I was slated to be in a downstairs "Save the World " room replete with sign though the top floor seemed quieter. I'll leave Saving the World for the folks that need more action! Great breakfasts in reception area with bamboo and shell accents, showcasing Thailand's natural seaside resources. Local paintings adorn the walls and blue-glass planters with greenery adorn the few tables in the eating area. Breakfast included is as simple as the decor: fresh local fruit, choice of instant coffee/tea, toast, jam, bacon or sausage (mini hotdogs) and eggs made to order. Everyone on staff is lovely and wishing to help with guest needs. It's an easy bike ride or walk to Tak Kiap Beach where you can visit the Big Buddha on the island and eat great , affordable seafood like barbecued mussels. There are also plenty of wats (temples) perched upon the Hills of Hua Hin, with sweeping views of the Gulf of Siam. Hua Hin is not "off the beaten path," which is more my style, though this charming, simple hotel "off the alley way" made the busy streets seem not so busy. Things to improve: Bikes for guest-use. Rhe hotel has one rusty bike with missing pedal available for guest use. I ended up renting from a nearby hotel for 100 baht a day. - Recycle litter and clean up the bungalow beach front. Please be aware of mountains of trash strewn along many beaches of Hua Hin. Rainy season apparently brings a lot of gunk in with the tide, and while there are government, hotel and community efforts to clean the beaches, there is more that needs to be done. - Cearly state on website and on all third party booking agent sites that there are two buildings. Better yet, rename each building to aptly reflect the property (aka "By the Beach" and "Along the Alley" - Many hotel sare just catching on to the idea of energy and water conservation, even using the most simple measures. Clearly state any hotel policies or regarding these actions.
A couple of nights ago we stayed at Baan Kang Mung. We stayed in one of the beach side rooms. The location is great. It is right next to the beach and has a nice view of the ocean from the room. Also, the bathroom was quite pleasant. The room itself was a bit small and somewhat plain. I suppose that some might consider it elegant if they like absolutely everything to be white. There was one chair (white flat wood or course) which must have been designed to be extremely uncomfortable. (It's hard to imagine that it could have achieved such a high degree of discomfort strictly by accident.) However, the chair situation was easily remedied by bringing in one of the two white plastic chairs from the small patio. All in all, it was a fairly pleasant, and quite adequate room. My main complaint was the price and the attitude. We were having dinner at a nearby restaurant when we first noticed the beach side rooms. Needing to find a room for the night, we walked over and asked about availability and price. Several of the beach side rooms were available and I was quoted a list price of 3,800 baht plus 10% tax. Frankly I thought that seemed a bit high for what was offered. The lady at the desk immediately said that we could have the room for 3,500 baht. I still thought that it was a bit high but since it was already dark and I didn't feel like driving to look further, I agreed. The next morning I went online and did a bit of research. Sawadee.com listed the beach side rooms for 2,600 baht plus taxes or 3,060 total. Agoda.com had similar prices. Liking the location, we considered spending an additional night or two. I approached the desk and mentioned the online prices that I had located. I said that if they would match those prices for the average night's rate, we would like to stay longer. Since most of the beach side rooms appeared vacant, I thought that this was a reasonable offer. I was met by a rather officious response that the walk in rates were much higher than the rates offered by outside agencies (even though they must pay commission to those agencies) and that was just the way that it was. If I didn't like it, I should have booked online in the first place. There was no flexibility whatsoever. I said, "Fine, you will have one more vacant room tonight." As we left, my Thai wife, who usually likes almost everyone, commented, "I didn't like her at all. I thought that she was very unpleasant." I had to agree.
Great sea view from the bed. Quiet and clean. Less choice for breakfast. Front & breakfast area need improvement I guess!
I looked up their website and got the distinct impression this hotel was located beachside. UNfortunately only the very expensive rooms are located there. They are 3000THB per room on weekdays and not sure how much on weekends. The rooms we booked were 1500THB and while nice enough were not what we were expecting. The place is located in Khao Takiab which is 7km away and costs 150THB one way to get to town in a tuk tuk, All noises can be heard. The doors closing, people walking up stairs, thumping feet in the room above and anyone talking in the passage. They do have nice TV channels. You have to walk down a small alleyway to the beach past some loud aggressive dogs who sometimes come at you. Breakfast is not too bad. Upon arrival we were met by a rather miserable guy. There is another young guy who does the night shift who was cool, but the other guy is a misery. The ladies are ok and smile and try their best to understand you. The best thing is to stay out of their way. Overall accommodation is expensive in Hua Hin. I would not recommend the entire area as a place to go. It gets packed on weekends with Bangkokians coming down for the weekend. Madame Green's may be a popular spot, but we did get a stomach virus from their food, so beware.
