The Small Krabi

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We stayed in a very nice pool room while staying here which was excellent. The bed is very big with plenty of room around it and an en-suite bathroom with a fantastic walk in shower. Its very quiet which makes for a perfect nights sleep. The breakfast was fine with lots of breads, an egg station, unlimited coffee/tea and buffet style Thai breakfast food.As well as the pool outside our room there is a one of the roof which is an infinity style pool with superb views. However the pool contains a chemical that dries your mouth while swimming so take some water with you. There is only a limited amount of beds to choose from and the space is small but we had no problems when we used the pool. The staff are all fantastic from the cleaners to the reception and deserve lots of praise for going that extra mile for the customers. This is a really nice place in a perfect position and a perfect choice for a well earned holiday in Krabi. Highly recommended. Oh and much praise for little Toi who booked us a wonderful boat trip and every day had a lovely smile waiting for us while she worked on the tour counter.

Staying here for 5 nights in a Studio room. The room is big, clean and modern, the ensuite bathroom is equally big, with large spacious three headed shower. Love it. The hotel boasts two swimming pools. One very long L shaped pool on the ground floor, with the ground floor room's balconies leading directly out into the pool. The second pool is on the third floor roof, offering a stunning view over the tree covered rock outcrops around Ao Nang and a glimpse of the Andaman Sea, with its 'James Bond' style islands jutting out of the sea. Wonderful. All in all, a very nice modern but not too small Small Hotel.

I very nice and cozy hotel. Nice staff and good location; not too far from Ao Nang beach. Also had good spa. I liked that the hotel had 2 pools for sunbathing. Small hotel guests are also allowed to go to the la playa hotel, which pool area was very good!

Almost everything is GOOD about The Small Krabi - from the staff, the property and its location. Excellent service from all levels of the hotel staff - helpful, friendly and accommodating. A word of thanks to the Manager for up grating one of our rooms to the pool access room which was magnificent! The hotel, although looks small but the rooms are spacious, clean, nice bathroom with good amenities, well thought décor, clean, spacious balcony and comfortable bed. And, the one thing that I liked most was the lovely beach basket complete with a set of a beach towel and a mat for every room, which was well-thought of! The swimming pools on the ground floor and rooftop are beautiful and clean. Even the other areas of the hotel were well kept and clean. The location of the hotel is excellent - a mere walking distance to Ao Nang and Nopparat Thara beaches. Convenience stores, pharmacies, massage parlours, bars, restaurants, shops, food stalls, etc. are all nearby and within walking distance. You won't be bored and lack of food to eat from day time to night time if one stays here! I will definitely return to The Small Hotel if I were to come back to Krabi again. Highly recommended folks!

This hotel is close to the main road, located at a more quiet place in Ao Nang, walking distance from the more crowded part of Ao Nang. It is very close to the motobike stores which sells cheap and good food. Both 7-eleven and Family Mart to nearby. The room is big enough, bed is hard enough. The water in the pool next to my room is always cold. Wifi is weak. As the hotel is close to beach and a lot of travelers go for Island tour, i will advise if the hotel can install one washing pool outside the main door to wash our slippers. This will make our room cleaner.

We stayed here from 13.02.2017 to 16.02.2017. Excellent property close to Nopparat thara beach and a 5- 10 minutes walk to Aonang beach road. You will get everything in a walk able distance ( 7-11 , ATM , Medicine Shop etc). Pros : Big and Clean rooms, Amazing Staff , Nice swimming pool , Tour service Cons: Breakfast Menu is almost same everyday. This hotel is very good for family as well as solo travellers. If you want a peaceful night away from the hustle bustle of Main Ao nang Beach Road this property is ideal for you.

We really enjoyed our stay at The Small Resort in Ao Nang. The staff were amazing and went above and beyond. They would be the reason we would love to return! Location was also extremely convenient - just outside the busy part of Ao Nang but close enough to walk down to either Ao Nang or Nopparat Thara beaches, as well as easy access to a number of restaurants, bars, and convenience stores. The room was comfortable - standard bed, great bathroom with a shower and tub, spacious balcony. Breakfast was wonderful and well worth the cost. Great rooftop pool. Wifi was pretty weak in the rooms, but manageable. Would definitely return!

This is a really nice and peaceful hotel located a stone throw away from Nopparat Thara Beach, one of the two beaches within Ao Nang. The hotel is in the middle of a cluster of restaurants and service minded businesses. The hotel has a friendly staff, albeit probably only one of them knows English well enough to be able to have a conversation with the guests. But they are service minded, if something needs attention they help you out. So overall good staff. And you really feel welcomed there. And they respect your privacy. You feel that you can have a nice cool stay without a lot of folks bothering you with sales pitches. There are two pools, one rooftop pool and one with room access from the lower level. The one on the top is fantastic, the one on the bottom is dark. But the pools are small, this is not a hotel for those who loves water games. The rooms are pretty standard. Beware, the beds are like everywhere in Thailand rock hard, but I like it. A tv with a few channels, a nice bathroom with a shower. For those who cares. The wifi is free but rather weak in the rooms sometimes. By the chairs at the lobby, it is excellent though. The breakfast is pretty simple, but sufficient. Some warm dishes and a lady making some egg stuff. It's a very peaceful hotel, no partying, no ladies of the night or stuff like that. If I went to Ao Nang again I would not mind to stay here again.

Stopped in here for a night when traveling through the area. The hotel is nice, clean, and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool looked nice, but we didn't have time to use it. The room was pricey but so are most in Ao Nang. It wasn't noisy and the location was good. We were overall happy to have stayed here.

Nicely located between Nopparat Thara Beach & Ao Nang Beach, I enjoyed the stay here mainly due to its location that is away from the main shopping/tourist area but close enough to access good halal food, be it street stalls or restaurants as well as convenient stores. Also enjoyed catching sunset at its infinity-styled pool. The interior of the hotel is somewhat Moroccan-inspired with bright, relaxed & warm ambience. Facilities at the hotel are satisfactory, the room we stayed in was clean & the toilet was pretty spacious. Overall pretty good place to stay for a short few days getaway. It happened that we were in Krabi during the Loy Krathong festival, each guests were given Krathong to release into the sea to usher in good luck & release negativities in life. How thoughtful!
