The Small Krabi

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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!

...except the lukewarm shower. Great location smack between Ao Nang and Norparatharat beach, both within walking distance. Picked this between 2 hotels with pool access rooms. And I would say this one is great value for money. I liked how the interior of the room is done up too. The sliding wardrobe door doubles up as the bathroom door. Sleek design.. There are 2 pools in this hotel, one at the roof and another thru pool access with jacuzzi seating and a small platform. Pool access was small but limited access to only several rooms. Theres a defunct poolside bar. Pity it was coloured green instead of being blue. Pool at roof is much bigger, and blue, the color of all beautiful pools. Staff were all friendly and polite. One brought us to our room and briefed us about everything in it. The beach bag with umbrella, towel and beach mat was a very thoughtful feature especially for the beach goers. I was surprised there was even an emergency torch by the wardrobe. An electrical anti mozzie device was provided in the room. The corridors would be filled with the same smell when you opened your doors in the morning too. This was another nice feature to prevent the aedes breeding. Toilet/bathroom is big and spacious. Hair dryer and amenities were provided. Bathroom came with a rain shower had a separate door to keep your toilet dry. Quite a pity that the water temperature was at best lukewarm and not hot. Housekeeping surprises us with their fancy handfolded towels which I looked forward to everyday. This hotel provides bottled water, coffee and tea along with a clean kettle to boil water in. Wifi can be a problem at times. No worries if you have no idea where to explore because there's a lady who sits near the entrance and can help make arrangements for your travel plans. Breakfast provided is a humble spread of salads, cereal, eggs and various breads. Its a nice feeling to enjoy your breakfast and watch the world go by.

The Small is a very nice hotel. The location is perfect. Just outside the busy part of AoNang, but close enough to walk it. The rooms are spacious and the hotel staff is ever so nice. The only problem is the troublesome wifi connection. Although they did really everything to accommodate us, it is still not what you expect at this price range. Also we had a really big double bed, but it looked like the sheet was still only for a single bed. Quite irritating. And finally the breakfast was cold. There were heaters, but they were not on. Cold fried rice is just not that appealing. Having said all this, I would still return to this hotel the next time I visit AoNang. Purely for the location and the super friendly staff!

Stead here for 10 days in the moon deck suite. Great littlevhotelvand a great room with own private deck which was a bonus and great place to relax after a long haul flight... The deck however could do with a bit of TLC....a few repairs needed and some plants would make even more desirable. Great to have 2 pools st the hotel. The breakfast was a bit of a disappointment as it didn't change much from day to day , however lots to eat if you're a breakfast person .

Were here for a 12 night stay overall its not bad but the building looks nothing like photos on their website it needs a bit of a facelift.Ok i will start with the pros great location studio room was big and beds were comfy breakfast was fine everything you need plus an egg station where you dont have to que and wait that was nice also the staff are friendly.A few little niggles though no hot water in the shower for 5 days complained to reception twice all smiley faces but nothing got done it needed Someone from the managemet team to sort it out which they did fix it. Housekeeping good but still little niggles one day no towels replaced then no water replaced only minor i know but why? also key card failed 3 times before it was replaced with a new one each time back to reception again we just got a bit fed up with it.Also checkout was a joke we had a 4am pickup and we could not wake up the person on reception who was asleep in the chair,sums it up i suppose but we still had a good holiday anyway.

Close to both Ao Nang and Ao Napporat. Hotel has great pools with swim from your room on first floor and good views from rooftop pool. Would give 5 stars but wifi was sketchy and breakfast OK but not stellar
