JP Mansion

Worth keeping in mind

What we say: 3.5 stars

Located near Wat Kaew at the end of a side street that cuts west off Maharaj Road, JP is easily overlooked and rarely full. The airy first-floor lobby has plenty of tables and raised lounges with floor cushions, and the receptionist was one of the friendliest we met in Krabi. For the money, the air-con rooms offer great value -- they're unexpectedly spacious, clean and come with TVs, hot-water bathrooms, desks and wide windows. Framed photos of local people on the walls are a nice touch. The slightly cheaper air-con rooms are similar but have windows overlooking the hallway so you're better off shelling out the extra for a street view. Fan rooms are similarly simple and clean, relying on shared hot-water bathrooms. JP is located at the far end of a soi that has a handful of seedy “massage” shops and karaoke bars, but they don't effect the guesthouse and you can walk around the other way to avoid passing them completely. It’s a five-minute walk from here to the markets and 15 minutes to the Chao Fah pier area. Though not in the best location, JP is worth keeping in mind, especially if the more popular budget guesthouses are full.
