Cheap hotel by the Krabi River Nov 22, 2011
Krabi City Seaview hotel is located in the Krabi town by the Krabi river. I chose to stay here because of the location and very much away from traffic and crowd. It is also far away from Krabi town bus stop as it takes about 10-15 mins by tuk tuk or taxi to the hotel. Though the view from the hotel is very scenic, it is not that comfortable for restaurants, market and shops, except for a nice rooftop restaurant just a block away from the hotel and overlooking the river, which is a nice place to sit, relax and eat.

As this hotel is located about a kilometer away from the city, commuting in and around the hotel was mostly dependent on motorbike taxi, but everything is reachable in 10-15 mins walk as well. The good thing I liked about this hotel is the view overlooking krabi river, river side walk, beautiful sunrise, green forest and view of sandstone mountains, night markets, and also very close to the pier which has long tail boats for river trips and provides access to some beaches. There are few tour companies nearby and they offer daily tour packages to many attractions which was very helpful for me as they pick-up and drop-off at the hotel.

The hotel itself I would say is average and old type, but the rate wise it is cheap for the location. I paid about 700 THB for a night for a deluxe seaview room without breakfast and wi-fi. This hotel does not have a restaurant, but just offers couple of complimentary water bottles everyday and coffee/tea in the lobby area. The area where coffee/tea is served is very nice sit-out area overlooking the river and surrounded by plants and trees.

There is also a computer located in the lobby area for using internet. They actually charge for the wi-fi, but I never bothered to use it.

The room I stayed was spacious enough and had big windows for an amazing view. Other than that, I wasn't really satisfied with other things. The room had a double bed which was comfortable and had clean sheets, then a very old TV with very limited channels, mini-fridge, not that great room lighting and air condition, bathroom was too small and annoyingly very narrow space between toilet and the shower area. It will be difficult for any tall person to use the toilet because of a pillar in the front and it was also blocking the path to the shower area. The shower is stand-up type and getting hot water was a pain, as I need to run water for about 5 mins in the morning to get hot water and in the evening I didn't remember how long I waited to get hot water from the shower! Overall, the bathroom is below average.

Housekeeping was done everyday and it was perfect, and the staff seem to be friendly and were able to communicate in english well. They also help with luggage and taxi needs.

I guess there are many other choices for staying in the krabi town which might be very close to night life, markets and shopping. Probably, I will choose some other place next time!

Good review and you covered all the basics for a hotel. Good info on that restaurant a block away - I like to know that there is somewhere to eat and relax when the hotel is away from the center of things. Good you mention that. In humorous mention, it's a Spongebob Selection in Krabi ways... : ) Congrats on the feature!
