      Relaxed in Ranong”

      We, my wife and I, a seasoned traveling couple from Switzerland, spent three nights before embarking on a Diving Safari (see Aladdin Divers Ranong) and one night after returning from the boat journey. The Guesthouse has four rooms and is located on the outer edges of town, conveniently located to the public hot springs (see Ranong Hotsprings). The building is nesteled into the hillside of a lush forest, making it nicely cooler, however also a bit damper. Walking distance to the city's commercial center is 20-25 minutes (at a slow to medium pace). A convenience store is 10 minutes away. We found the room to be clean and convenient. Swing, the receptionist, manager and cook is your contact for pretty much everything. She is very helpful in respect of the needs you may have and we certainly enjoyed her traditional Thai-style cooking. Considering the very reasonable price of approx. 20$ a night we feel confident to recommend this establishment to travelers to Ranong.

      great place next to the hot springs.”

      This is a nice place to relax after the hotspring. we booked 2 night and booked 1 night extra because it's so relaxed there and the food is great. The owner and her staff are doing a good job to make every guest feel welcome. The rooms are not big but very clean. nothing is to much for the staff. I ordered something what was not on the menu but this was noproblem. iWhen you wake up in the morning the first thing you get is a smile from the staff and asking if you want coffee. What do you want more. When you go to Ranong try to stay here it's next to the hotspring and in 10 min walk you are in the centre of Ranong. We will go back soon for sure. thank you Sophie and staff for staying at this wonderful place.

      Great Staff”

      We stayed at the House of Happinez for 1 night on our way to Kih Chang Noi. On arrival the staff were very accommodating and friendly and gave us the pick of rooms as we were first to arrive. The beautiful hot springs were a short walk away. Swing offered us beer and my daughter biscuits on arrival and was very attentive to our needs and cooked us a beautiful dinner. She is excellent with children. The rooms are basic but very clean (the bed is hard but at the price we paid there is no complaints). The building is very quirky and overall we enjoyed our night.

      This small guesthouse is located in a public park, with 5 min walking to hot spring, which open 5am - 9pm and is also FREE! The room is small but has everything needed. The front desk manager Swing is a Thai lady. She speaks good English and is very helpful. Swing is a good chef, and prepares good European and Thai food. The owner of the guesthouse also run dive safari tours to Thai and Myanmar dive sites. I would definitely stay at this lovely guesthouse next time I visit Ranong.

      The Picturesque Lodge”

      Service, jungle book view, intimate setting

      The lodge is built at the base of an dense green,lushous rain forest mountain side. On one side of the lodge is a fast flowing torrent and a waterfull tumbling down out of the jungle above. A small rocky pathway lead up to my room, which was tiny, cosy, clean and intimate. Great sounds of the flowing waters and the singing cicada. Looks like a page taken out of the Jungle Book, very scenic. The house keeper was a Burmese lady, Ma Cho-cho, offered to get me whatever I wanted from the market nearby. Frank, of German origin, owner and operator was most friendly, drove me to the Internet store and helped me with the purchase of a local sim card for my phone. On the last day of my 4 day stay, Frank drove me to the Departure Depo, providing all this extra service at absolutely no cost. I enjoyed my stay there.

      Good value for a peaceful and quiet place”

      The hotel is tucked in the foot of a dense and green forest adjacent to the river so the room is damp and less sun and equipped with basic necessities. It worked for us as we spent the day time at discovering city and parks, bathed at hot springs, and only needed a serene place not in downtown to sleep. The only downside is the bed which is less comfortable with noise when you move. However, the hospitality of the staff, Frank, Sophie, and Swing, surpasses all. They accommodated us the best they could--- let us change the date due to our illness, picked us up at the bus station on the motorbikes, and tell us how to get around, without up-selling the package tour. The cook prepares the meal based on what in season and market availability. We didn't have a chance to try. The hotel is adjacent to the Raksawarin park with a nice little walking path, about 250m., to the hot spring where we bath and relax every night. A genuine luxury indeed.

      I had booked room 2 but was given room 3 which was different and more basic than shown in the photo. The bathroom was small enough to take a shower whilst sitting on the toilet which was flushed by scooping water into the bowl - no flush in this particular room - the seat was broken and kept falling off. The place looks much nicer in the photos. On the positive side, the food was good and it is in a quiet location 5 minutes from the hot springs. It's a pleasant 20 minute walk to the town and Ranong itself is worth a visit.

      We had room 1 and 4. At both rooms there is a fan that should keep the room less moist, but it did not work (must have been for longer time not working). In room 4 there is an aircon, which does not work either. We did sleep in dank beds with the smell of mildew. Awful! I understand that it is because the rooms are nearly in the jungle, but I cannot understand why nobody tries to maintain the lodging. In room 1 in the bathroom there were millions of ants. I would recommend to spend a little more money and sleep somewhere else to protect your health.

      There are only 4 rooms, half of which have operative air conditioning. The rooms are simple, but clean. We experienced 4 days of nonstop rain. As a consequence, changes of linen were damp and the room started to smell musty. We were told that the clothes dryer was not working well. Breakfast and dinner can be prepared by staff or there is Thai food available down the hill. Overall, we would return and pray for sunshine or a repaired dryer. Easy walk to the Hot Springs.

I received no reply from the owner, whose telephone number I had. When I then went online i found the hotel was fully booked - of course. The result is that I paid twice: for the Happinez and for another hotel in Ranong. This isn't good enough.
