Ben's House Ao Nang Reviews
Hidden Gem Apr 08, 2012
The thing about staying in Ao Nang is that as you're driving to your hotel, there's no doubt about it, no matter where you're staying you will feel some hotel envy. Every corner you turn, there's a bigger more lavish place.
Anyway, Ben's House is a bit off the main strip but you can walk down to the main road in ten minutes, otherwise you can jump on the back of a bike and be down there in no time.
Ben's House is sort of behind other hotels, so there was a feeling of trepidation getting to it, but once inside I was pleasantly surprised by the airy and clean feeling of the reception area, which also included a dining area and free wi-fi access although internet use had to be paid for.
The rooms in Ben's House are located downstairs, which initially feels odd but when you enter your room you realise that although it's downstairs you still have windows and the light is not compromised in anyway.
Although there were only two of us, for whatever reason (and I won't complain) we were upgraded to the deluxe triple room, which was huge, had plenty of cupboard space, the biggest bathroom and even a little balcony.
Another pleasant surprise was that Ben's House has a swimming pool, it took me awhile to figure out what the constant sound of running water was and that to enter the pool I had to go a floor or two down :)
Security is also excellent, you are given electronic swipe cards to swipe in and out, but you have to remember to do it each way otherwise the electronic system wont allow you to swipe in, if you didn't swipe out.
If you have an extra 'couple' of baht kicking around, you could do a lot worse then staying at Ben's House.
