    Where to stay in Krabi town

    Our pick of the bunch.

    Long boasting a strong lineup of backpacker-range guesthouses, Krabi town’s accommodation scene has rounded out in recent years thanks to the arrival of several more modern hotels aiming for the ... Read more.



Chao Fah Pier Area

While guesthouses and hotels are now popping up all over town, most of the budget guesthouses are still clustered around Chao Fah pier and on nearby Uttarakit and Chao Fah roads. The Chao Fah area blends into the Maharaj “downtown” area, which is no more than a 15-minute walk from the furthest of the places listed here. If the cheap spots listed here are full, or you’re just feeling lazy, the impossible-to-miss Grand Tower Hotel has characterless but cheap fan or air-con rooms at the corner of Chao Fah and Uttarakit roads.

Downtown Krabi

In recent years, a growing number of accommodation choices have popped up in what’s long been considered Krabi’s “local” section, or the “downtown” that’s clustered between Maharaj Road and the river. While you’ll still find plenty of humble businesses, they now rub shoulders with several modern flashpacker-range hotels. These put you within a stone’s throw of Maharaj Market and the weekend night market, and a five- to 10-minute stroll from Chao Fah pier.
