              Awesome!!”

              Cleanliness, great staff and huge rooms

              Absolutely awesome. Huge clean rooms, nice staff that was very polite and helpful when you needed them. They only serve breakfast and the American breakfast was very tasteful "bacon and eggs". Location was very easy to walk to the beaches and there is a kitchen downstairs named Podam's kitchen that served the best fried rice if that's your taste. Next door is the best steak house in Krabi named Carnivore steak house. We walked a lot and we also rented a motorbike from around the corner that was our main transportation to get to Big C and Tesco Lotus supermarkets. In Ao Nang their is the Ocean Mart you can shop from also. We are not partiers so I cannot enlighten you on that topic, but for sightseeing and the beach. Definitely a must do and take a little 15 minute ride to Railey Beach by long tail boat for 100 baht, but it must be 9 people going over or you will wait. Or you can pay for the boat just for 2 people for 1700 roundtrip and they will wait for you to have fun and bring you back by 1800. Besides that The Royal Nakara will be our resting place when we visit Ao Nang again. To many great things about this place, the staff and the surroundings to not visit again. Great job Royal Nakara on a well deserved and gracious outfit you have there in Ao Nang. See you next time!!

              Excellent value for money”

              Friendly, helpful staff and spotlessly clean rooms
              Location could be better but it is only about a ten minute walk to the action in Ao Nang.

              The Royal Nakara is a very clean, friendly no-nonsense hotel about a ten minute walk from Ao Nang beach. Our room was enormous and spotlessly clean. The hotel shares a small pool with the hotel next door. There is no space for sunbathing but it is useful for cooling off after a day out on one of the area's many beaches. The staff are excellent and extremely helpful in organising trips and offering restaurant recommendations. Breakfast is good especially the omelettes cooked in front of you by one of the permanently smiling members of staff. Ao Nang itself is a busy place and, despite being a ten minute walk away from the main beachside drag, the Royal Nakara is surrounded by other hotels and restaurants. Restaurant recommendations in Ao Nang include Tanta's (for seafood) and Lavinia's (for Italian) which were both head and shoulders above anywhere else we ate. I can also strongly recommend Smart Cook's cookery courses.

              simply royal”

              small, quaint, personalized service, boutique hotel, tucked away from the noise of ao nang beach..but still a stone's throw away from the restos, night markets, and the beach
              they dont have menu except for breakfast

              we stayed for 3 days in royal nakara. we were welcomed by friendly hotel staff, cold towel and refreshing orange juice. Guy, one of the staff, toured us around the hotel and showed us our room. given the hotel is small, check in was a breeze. the room is spacious and well-maintained. Once you enter the room, your senses would truly bring you to thai - from the scent of the room up to the decor. our room was facing the mountain scene, the only sore was the construction down below which did not affect our stay. the hotel has a small pool shared by another hotel...its size is just perfect for a 2-3 stroke swim, that's for asian like me...good enough to wash the sands after a day of island hopping in krabi. breakfsat is served at the hotel terrace with a fantastic view of the countryside of ao-nang - greens and the mountains. the hotel served continental breakfast - from salads, bacon, sausages and ham, eggs, toasts, and 1 local dish - fried noodle. for drinks, feel free for refills of fruit juice, tea, coffee or milk. the hotel also can act as your tour agent and cant book tours or transportation within krabi. they booked our 4 island tours in just 5 minutes. i would highly recommend the hotel and would surely comeback.

              This is the 3rd time staying at Royal Nakara. We always splurge on the deluxe room on the top floor with a large balcony and great view of the Andaman sea and sunsets. This time we stayed 7 nights and it was just as amazing as our previous stays., The staff is so friendly ad accommodating, and helped us with a few special requests. The only reason for the 4 star on location is due to the walk up the street to get to and from Ao Nang & Napara Thara beaches, It seems a bit dangerous with traffic after dark and there is no clear cut walkway due to over grown vegetation on the side of the road. Royal Nakara is a great facility with a GREAT staff!!!

              Very very satisfied with our stay in Royal Nakara. The hotel management gave us a free room upgrade and we had the highest floor room facing seaview. Location wise you have to hike up a bit from the main road of Ao Nang (about 10mins walk from the main road). But the good thing is as you hit the main road you have plenty of choices of food stalls which serve authentic Thai food at a very very reasonable price (unlike fancy restaurants which are managed by foreigners)

              Royal Nakara is a good value for a nice room...”

              This is the 3rd time we stayed at the Royal Nakara in the deluxe suite. This year we stayed in the room above the kitchen. I mention this only because when the staff arrives, their conversations can be quite loud resonating through the stairwell very early in the morning. The deluxe room is quite large and well layed out with a small kitchen and a large balcony. The room had a slightly moldy smell to it. One day a monkey decided to walk in through a partially open balcony door. I had to aggressively yell and chase him away swinging my arms and showing my teeth. The staff were all so very friendly and accommodating to our every need. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious, and once they learned I was vegetarian they provided me veg option every morning. The street to get to the Royal Nakara from Ao Nang, and Napara thara is kindof sketchy. There is over grown vegitation, and NO SIDEWALK!!! Traffic is speeding by you day and night while trying to walk to and from the hotel.

              New Year 2009 at Royal Nakara”

              Location is fine, Seaview Room is nice, and service was superb
              Wifi should reach highest level rooms

              As it was our first time to visit Krabi, we weren't sure where to go. We were just looking for a hotel that was located near the beach, and value for money (not very luxurious, but cozy enough to spend a nice holidays). We were a bit surprised since the photos shown made us imagine a bigger hotel. But from the moment we called the hotel to ask for directions (rented a car), they already started to shown their great hospitality. They actually asked us to wait nearby and sent a staff on a bike to show us the way to the hotel (wasn't that hard to find, but they really meant to guide us). The most we were impressed about was the service, because they treat everyone no only as guests. but friends and family. My advice, if you are looking to go to Krabi and still feel at home, then Royal Nakara should be a great choice!

              I really enjoyed my stay in Royal Nakar Ao Nang Hotel. The receptionist was very friendly and had our room ready when we first reached the hotel. The hotel room was clean. One thing to recommend is to widen the variety of the television channels; more english channels. The staff explained that their kitchen is not 'Halal' but she was very nice and understanding and bought us Halal breakfast from a nearby Halal restaurant. Overall, thumbs up for Royal Nakara Ao Nang Hotel!

              Royal is a good stay for those who spend much time away fr the hotel. The hotel is very clean, new & sizeable. It has a huge balcony too except the view is not much to be desired with the ongoing construction but not noisy. the balcony has deck chairs. it makes much effort in providing comfort & despite the limited space, the hotel has a little pool. its a distance from the main ao nang street but still within walking distance. tuk tuk is at 40 baht fr ao nang street. outside the hotel - sawasdee restaurant - not the cheapest compared to those at the ao nang street with the quality similar to those at the ao nang street stall. we had that cuisine at both places. try the thai pancakes & coconut water, nice & reasonably priced.

              The hotel is clean, well kept, and a great value. It's near the hustle and bustle of Ao Nang, but also just far enough away to remain quiet.
              Clearly, a lot of thought went into the design of hotel, however, small things we're unfinished like out-of-the-way tile work, or little corners. Nevertheless, the only weaknesses were superficial. The hotel was great and a great value.

              During this trip we had previously stayed at resort hotels on the in beach, and paid much more for them. The Royal Nakara was a pleasent change of pace. It's a small, boutique hotel, with charming design, a very attentive and helpful stay, and great location, albiet not on the beach. If you want to be near the activity of Ao Nang, but not the noise, this is a great choice. We we're also able to take a day trip to Railay from the nearby boat dock.

              Spacious bedrooms and plenty of choice at breakfast!

              We really enjoyed our stay at Royal Nakara, we had a lovely big room with a balcony. We were on the ground floor, so unfortunately our balcony felt more like a prison with bars from floor to ceiling, however this didnt really bother us too much. The hotel has wonderful staff who are so friendly and helpful. The rooms had comfortable beds and plenty storage space and a lovely shower. Only a couple of things that seemed odd to me were the size of the bathroom in proportion to the rest of the bedroom and the walls could do with a fresh lick of paint in the not too distant future. Other than that, it is a great place to stay. The walk into town is only 10-15 minutes from the hotel. The swimming pool is actually very nice, despite being placed between two buildings. It was very refreshing following a busy day in the hot sunshine. A nice extra at the hotel was having towels available to take to the beach - we really appreciated that. All together a great stay and I would come back to the Royal Nakara once more.

              This hotel is located on the quiet side of ao-nang beach away from the night life and partying. There is a pretty decent restaurant at the bottom of the hotel, and many massage parlours as well as tour guides around the hotel. It's a 5-10 minutes walk to ao nang beach and the surrounding cafes, and a good 1km walk to the partying side of ao-nang. The hotel can arrange taxi/van/tuk tuk service for you but so can the tour guides, you can even bundle in airport transfer when you buy your tour packages. Staff at the hotels are fluent in English and very helpful so you don't get rippped or if you need help. P.s. - the taxis are 6 seater vans so you may want to check with other tourists on carpooling. It's approx 600THB to anywhere in ao-nang btw.

              Location, Spacious Room, Balcony

              Peaceful and spacious, which is really good for travellers who wish to rest and recharge. The location is far enough away from the only main road in Ao Nang so that we aren't disturbed by the noise, but near enough to walk out to the cheap street food. There is a nice small pool shared with the neighbouring hostel, but the view of the beach it is blocked by newer buildings. The lady at the front desk who works from 6am to 6pm speaks decent English, while the male can only speak basic Check-In English. Usage of the computer at the lobby is chargeable, and Wi-Fi connection is very weak in the rooms. You can book any tours from the hotel itself, but the White Water Rafting course (7km) i booked from them was not worth my time and money. You do not have to worry about transport if you're booking a tour, as they will pick you up from the hotel. Or else, you can just rent a scooter. The main part of touristy Ao Nang is just a U-shaped road, and traveling around by scooter is cheap and easy in the non-peak hours in the day. (You do not need to show your license, and you can park ANYWHERE along the road) Try to ask for the child price, or even lesser when you want to book the tours. The prices are deliberately inflated so that they can give discounts easily.

Good points: -Massive rooms -Very welcoming and helpful staff -Decent selection of food for breakfast Bad points: -It's a bit out of the way from everything that's going on in Ao Nang...the best part we found was the other end of Ao Nang beach (30 minute walk) which is called 'the last fisherman'. -Bathroom gets very hot as there is no ventilation in there during showering. -Views from both the balcony and swimming pool are not the best.

              I was very pleased with this hotel. The location is close enough to the beach but far enough away from the raucous partiers and the resultant noise. The room was spacious and the daily housekeeping was superb. We really enjoyed taking a dip in the refreshing pool each afternoon after being out in the heat of the day. The staff were very attentive and accommodating and made our stay very enjoyable. The hotel took a hit like most others due to the corona virus situation but the breakfast each morning was still very satisfying considering the limited amount of occupants. They made me french toast each morning which was great. All in all, although there are fancier and more extravagant hotels in ao nang, for what you get at a great price with a superb location you will be hard pressed to find a better hotel.

The only minus was the ants: they are everywhere. I had some spray from my home country but could not get rid of them. The hotel staff is very helpful and most of them speak good English. The breakfast was nice - on one day they had some local specialties too. I can recommend this to singles or couples. Not for people who find stairs problematic...
