Great location, lovely staff”
Got a room upgrade as soon as we checked so very happy but only negative is the air con seemed to spout out the smell of the swap area which appeared to get worse at night, think a new filtration system is recommended. The pool area also needed a bit of tlc but the grounds of the hotel and staff were amazing. Rooms beautifully decorated too and spacious. Located on the East of Railay which is good for late nightlife and only 5/10 mns walk to the beautiful West beach so best of both. The breakfast choice was also amazing and staff couldn't do enough for you, they even gave us a container to help ourselves to the breakfast buffet before it opened at 7am as this is when our boat transfer was leaving. Would return if got the air con fixed or perhaps it was the rooms we were in.
Good budget stay”
This hotel locates isolated peninsula in Krabi so almost all foods and stuff are coming from main land by boat. Considering this point, this hotel is quite good managed in terms of facilities, room cleanliness, staff and hospitality.
Pretty good ”
Was a pretty nice resort, two nice pools and the breakfast buffet was spot on. Staff really nice and helpful , my only complaint was our bathroom had some stains on the floor when we arrived and noticed some hairs in there. These little things make the difference between 3-4 stars and 5 stars, the details. Great location 7 min walk to the beach and right by all of the restaurants on walking street.
Great place. But there is always room from improvement. ”
The resort is nice. It’s in the mangrove side (east). So you need to walk 5 minutes or so to the beach. Not too bad. The best part for us was that we arrived right at the resort. We didn’t even know. We got lucky. I guess you could be arriving from the west side, witch is the beach 5 minute away. Breakfast was good. Staff was very nice!!!
nice but a little disappointed anyway”
we were unlucky because we had a very noisy room near a ventilation. The view from the terrace of our room overlooked a courtyard with plants. The room is very sober, not really decorative. The breakfast was very nice because the sea view was nice (but no beach on this east side of Railay). Longboats seem more expensive in the East than in the West. There are 2 pools with a nice view.
Nice location, beautiful garden view”
Nice location, just at the pier. 3 mins walk to Railay West Beach, 5 mins walk to night market street. The Staff is really friendly and helpful. We lived in garden view room, the room is big and clean, the view is really nice. However the safybox doesn't work, the bathroom is very hot because of ventilation. The swimming pool water is not that limpid. There are so many flies when we eating breakfast. But anyway we recommend this hotel!
Nice Place to Stay”
Staffs are friendly and helpful, breakfast buffet was really good. Its children friendly and accessible to both beach side, room we got was big to fit in all of us including 2 small kids. Will stay here again next time.
The resort was the most conveniently located when getting off at the Railay East boat peer. We walked right off the boat and to our resort. Didn't have to unload into the water like you do at Railay West. The restaurant was a bit pricey compared to what's out on the strip, but we ate there twice because it's convenient and had many options. The free breakfast buffet each morning was great. They had fruit, various breads and pastries, an omelet station, salad bar, juice bar, french toast, pancakes, rice, and about 4 options that were dinner-like (for example- pasta). The room was clean and spacious. The water pressure in the bathroom shower was set too low for our liking. The pools were gorgeous and never crowded. They also have room service and pool side service. It's a short walk to the nice beaches on Railay West and the shops, restaurants, bars, and massage parlors. We were there to rock climbing for the week and our resort was conveniently located between several climbing areas.
This is not a beachfront property because there is no beach in front of it, it's just the pier. The pool is nice with a nice sunrise view. The breakfast is very good, many options. Spa was closed unfortunately and there was no mention about this anywhere. The room was big, clean and comfy.
I don’t have anything but good things to say about this hotel! Room was excellent, comfortable bed, a/c worked great! I’d go back in a heart beat!
Location is perfect, right off the pier for ease”
Stay in the section near the front of the hotel. These rooms are much newer and nicer than those on the back side. Pros; 2 nice pools, good choices for breakfast, right off the pier so you don’t have to drag your bags far, friendly staff Cons; not enough loungers by the pools
Nice stay with best food.”
A really nice hotel. The location are on the middle of east beach and there was easy to get to the West beach where you can take a swim, just a few minute walk. Nice pool on the roof. We tried several of other restsurants on Railay but we liked the food at this hotel the most. Nice staff. I would gladly recommend this hotel!
Location! Location! Location! ”
Pros: location, CLEAN, quiet, friendly staff, two pools, very good breakfast, well maintained Cons: sewer smell near one of the pools and on a section of the walkway, under equipped fitness facility, well maintained but a bit aged We really enjoyed our 6 days at this resort and would definitely return!
I loved my stay at the Railay Princess. It’s on the east side of Railay so it’s not beachfront, but Railay is so small that in my opinion, it doesn’t matter. When you arrive by ferry it’s the first hotel you come to, which is very convenient when schlepping around your bags. The rooms are very comfortable, the infinity pool is great, and I looked forward to breakfast every morning! Highly recommend, especially for the value.
Perfect location and right next to the pier! Everything was perfect, except the Wifi was terrible in the back area where we were staying. Not a big problem for us but when we did want access we had to go to the front area. The pools were amazing and the staff were really lovely! Central location to all beaches and night life.
Stayed here about 10 times. One of the best value for money hotels in Railay. Shame the restaurant service never improves during the years I'm staying here....foreigners like to receive their meals at the same time, not when your partner almost finished her meal...
Perfect location, staff and rooms!”
The managers are extremely kind and patient and were willing to go out of their way to put my group of 3 girls into 2 connecting rooms (it was originally unavailable as it was a full weekend). The breakfast was alright, but location was great and nearby to everywhere else!
Good location and good value for money but need some updating.”
Pool looked great in photos but in reality there are now trees blocking your view so not what it seems. Great location and good value for money (as we had booked it last minute) but food wasn't great and quite pricey. (However, everything in Railay seems to be pricey)
Nice hotel right next to the pier.”
Stayed as a couple for 3 nights & felt quite spoiled compared to others visited since. Room was spacious and very clean. Bathroom had a good shower. All the usual in room facilities of safe, air con, mini bar etc. The rooftop pool was good, as was the 'top' pool which our room overlooked. Breakfast was plentiful & good. The hotel was a short walk from the bars & restaurants along the front & on Walking Street (which can be accessed by turning left just before the Welcome Back 'restaurant'. We enjoyed The Black Pearl for its music & vibe. Also the roof kof the bar close by for watching the monkeys in the trees. Would recommend skunk bar & the fire show at the Last Bar.
Value for money but some let downs”
We stay for 4 nights in a delux room which was good value, clean and comfortable. Overall it is a nice hotel, not great but good value and probably as good as any of the other better hotels in Railay. The biggest let down for us was the staff. Not all but probably 2 out of 3 weren't friendly or overly helpful. I am not sure if it is a cultural or language barrier issue but rather off putting. It seemed they would rather be somewhere else. The service was often slow, we had dinner there one night early when it was almost empty and the staff talked together for 10 mins before going to get our drinks. Finally the cleaning of our room was the worst I have ever experienced, we had to ask for our room to be cleaned and it was given the quickest most basic clean. An example is they didn't replace the empty toilet roll with a new one preferring to leave the cardboard inner in place.
