The place was overpriced for what it was. As you can see in my pictures it was disgustingly dirty and we couldn't even bare to shower without flip flops on. The bedding had stains on and in every part of the room there was dirt and grime. Reported it to the staff but they didn't even care.

This place is the worst that I have ever seen. I couldn't stay one night as the room was so dirty. There was hair all over the floor. The toilet was really dirty and the toilet paper was a joke. Looked like somebody threw it in the water and put it back for us to use. Even after this, the... More

The hotel rooms are clean & service is good. This hotel is situated 10-15 minutes walk from the beach. If you are on a budget trip, you can consider this hotel. Its value for money.

We choose the Deluxe Room which had Fridge, TV, Aircon. The staff are very welcoming and friendly. We found the location good, while being a 10 minute walk from the beach, it's located near plenty of nice bars and resturaunts (cheaper than the beach area). Would also reccomend 'Number 1 Thai Food' 2 doors down who sell cheap and delicious... More

During our stay we had no trouble whatsoever. We liked the big room, we enjoyed the BBQ they provided and our room was cleaned every day with much thoroughness. The location is okay if you like to stretch your legs and the restaurants are much cheaper around the hotel than near the beach, so that's a good thing. One but... More

Hello, if you happen to find yourself in Ao Nang, I can't recommend Blue House enough. The owner Umberto and his wife are extremely accommodating. The rooms are inexpensive, clean, well appointed, and comfortable. The bathrooms, shower, beds were spotless and functioned well. For the price, the simple luxuries can not be beat. I have stayed at lesser expensive hostels... More

Room was spacious and clean. Bedsheets smell good! I even saw a staff ironing clean bedsheets. Simple breakfast but good enough (with fresh fruits and toast, coffee or tea) Right beside the bike rental shop, so you can rent a bike anytime.
