An urban hotel with a resort mentality
A hotel in Krabi Town with sea view and swimming pool? Golden Hill Hotel was a first for the town centre when it opened in 2004. But though it resembles a resort in facilities and services, make no mistake that this is a city hotel, nowhere near a beach.

Located at the top of the steep Utarakit Rd, next to the police station, the rooms enjoy views unparalleled in town: down to the mouth of the river (and the sea!), right across to the islands and a glimpse of Railay and Ao Nang. A roof terrace with private function room gives an even more impressive 360 degree vista.

The hotel’s location and garden surroundings mean it is relatively quiet, although still within walking distance of shops and amenities (approximately 10 minutes away by foot, or a couple of minutes’ taxi ride). It is, however, close to the riverside Thara Park area with its excellent daytime restaurants and sports recreation ground.

Golden Hill also has a fine Thai restaurant of its own (don’t be put off by the lurid pictures in the lift), which is great for evenings as the immediate vicinity is rather quiet. The swimming pool is small but offers some diversion during the day, when it can be simply too hot to walk around the town.

Though the 39 rooms have questionable decor, they provide good value for money, even in the relatively cheap Krabi town. The two room categories of standard and deluxe are classed further according to which side of the building they are on; but otherwise are the same. The rooms are arranged over 4 floors, accessible by lift and stairs. All come with air-con, cable TV, minibar and hot water shower as standard. They are tiled throughout and very clean and bright.

Standard rooms comprise the majority of the accommodation and are average-sized with double beds – all are road-facing. Rooms with a sea view have twin beds, as well as a balcony with chairs and table. The deluxe rooms are double only, with a king-size bed and more elaborate furniture and room to move around. The deluxe sea view rooms also have a balcony.

Hotel Location

Golden Hill Hotel is located on the outskirts of Krabi Town - the centre is approximately 10 minutes walking distance. There is a park nearby, and the main backpacker strip with western restaurants and bars is 5 minutes on foot. At certain times of year, large markets are held just in front of the hotel.
