        Great value boutique hotel in Krabi town”

        Location, value, comfort

        We spent just 2 nights at the U Residence in Krabi Town. It's a small boutique hotel but in a great location in Krabi town. The room is small, but big enough to put your bags down and still be able to move. The room is super clean, air conditioned, bed comfy - much better than we were expecting for the price. Therefore it's great value. We didn't try the food in the hotel because directly across the road and down a bit are the street markets and their food is pretty unbeatable! If you're looking for a tour the boatmen hang around the hotel and will give you heaps of info. If you're driving be aware there's only street parking and to get a spot out the front means moving your car late at night. I'd definitely recommend staying here if you're in Krabi Town. PS check out the price list for the room's amenities - you can buy anything in the room and I mean anything - the toilet door, the curtains etc hahahaha

        Classy decor, service attitude, and overall experiences

        One of our best hotel experiences in Thailand (Pai Iyara, Green Tiger in Chiang Mai, and Paradise hotel at Phi Phi island could learn from U residence especially on service attitude). At U residence, so much attention to details in their décor and service attitude. Even though one of the rooms was small and there is no elevator, family still really enjoyed the stay because the staff was so helpful. They upgraded us to a bigger room with needing the extra bed, allowed us to refund the boat tickets we did not use (would recommend only getting “open tickets” on return trip when we ended up extending our stay at Phi Phi to see more islands), and always responded to our needs with gracefulness and smile. The boat ride and taxi service they helped to order was reasonable (as compared to Green Tiger trying to charge extra commission for 1600 bahts (over $50 USD) for a day tour). The quality of food was pretty good and price reasonable. If we ever go back to Krabi, we would definitely stay here again. Thank you, U Residence, you rock!

        Chic Boutique in Town”

        The hotel and its beautiful decor was definitely one of the assets of this hotel and the location was another...just a short walk to the river, the shops and markets. The satff were also very helpful!

        Although not near the beaches, we decided to stay a few days in Krabi town as well as a few at Aonang Beach. We chose the U residence because of its high reviews and were not disappointed. The hotel was lovely, the location great and the staff excellent. We were close to the river, the shops and markets. We could hire a motorbike across the road and also get our laundry done there. The spiral stairs at U Residence might be an issue for some so if that presents a problem ask for a room on the lowest floor. Breakfast was the simplest of meals (eggs, toast and drinks)and for such a chic hotel could be improved on and expanded by simply adding in some fruit or yoghurt but otherwise a lovely stay!

        Adorable hotel”

        U Residence is a cute hotel on one of the main streets of Krabi. We loved its location near one of the night markets and within walking distance of others. There are a few bars right across the street as well! The bed is big and comfy. The balcony is relaxing and a fun way to watch sunrise. The staff was friendly, though check-in and check-out took a long time. The stairs can be a lot, but it is definitely worth the stay in Krabi town!

        fantasic little find”

        location, clenliness, service

        Havent been back to Krabi for almost 7 years and was pleased to find that not much has changed. One new edition though is the U Residence hotel and what a great little addition it is! for the money you would be crazy to stay anywhere else. Beautifully designed and in a great location just on the edge of town. Easy walking distance to anywhere you need to go in town should you be on foot. Breakfast wasn't the greatest but then again I havent had a real full english very often since I've been in asia so cant complain, especially for the money. The coffee was fresh and thats good enough!

The helpful and knowledgable staff made us feel welcome and our two children (3 years and 9 months) were well catered for. U Residence provided our family with a great start to our island hopping trip.

        Although I only stayed for 1 night, I had a wonderful experience in U Residence. The two male staff are so friendly and helpful, we had a delightful breakfast in the balcony on the second floor. I will definitely return to U residence when I visit Krabi Town again, highly recommended.

        Beyond my expectations”

        amazing detain, amiable staff, good location

        I stayed in U Residence in my first day in Krabi. I am soooo surprised by the amazing design, I mean, I didn't expect I could stay in such a great hostel in a low price. All those decoration and design are really impressive, very good southeast style. The rooms are new and clean. All the items here are in good quality. The staffs are helpful and gave us some help to find good places to eat. The location is good, close to the good bars.

        Value-worthy”

        Cost, location

        1.Great location Easy to find, located at centre of Krabi town, in the street that all backpackers' hotel are. I stayed here for one night as Ao Nang is too faraway to get to airport and catch a early plane. 2.Nice staffs Staffs offered me a map showing nearby shoppes when I am asking where the convenient store is. 3.Great low-cost A great deal. 4.A little bit noisy The street are filled with tourists, and room balcony is on the street side, can not be quiet until 10AM. 5.Required to take off shoes when entering room. Maybe it will save its cost, but it is troublesome after taking bath. It should be better to offer one-off slippers.

        Very Nice Hote, and Good Location”

        Clean, Good Location, Friendly and Helpful Staffs

        I feel that this hotel have the best location in Krabi Town. First, it is just less than 5mins walk from Chao Fah Pier, and this hotel are near to the Krabi Night Markets, there are a few there. There are a lot of shops around the hotel for you to go to. The hotel is very clean. If you like retro and old fashion feel kind of hotel, this is the hotel for you! The hotel is very nicely decorated. The staffs are very helpful, and airport transfer from the hotel is very cheap, only 350bhat (depending on period)

        Room decoration and style, central located, nice staff

        Although the hotel is not near the beach, actually it is located in the Krabi town, it is highly recommend to stay if you have enough time. The decoration is full of Thai style. The room is very clean and comfortable. The staff is full of passion. People there are nice. The food is also not bad. Anyway, I like the hotel. Will stay here definitely next time in Krabi town.

        A place with Character ”

        Room, Comfort, Staff

        This is not a 2,5 star hotel - we thoroughly enjoyed out stay here - the room was beautifully decorated, the hotel had lots of charm, and the staff were kind and accommodating. This is a brand new hotel and is a delight to stay at if you are going to Krabi town. Also check out the night market by the river for a great and inexpensive dinner of Thai food. The only little downside is the steep staircase which could be very challenging for some people.

        Colonial Charm”

        The attention to detail is exquisite; the rooms are very comfortable; location is excellent.

        The owners have worked hard to recreate old colonial charm with this hotel. Our room had a four poster bed, rain shower and a balcony overlooking the bustling street below. Our booking included an American breakfast served in the dining area and it was lovely. The location is excellent for walking around Krabi town, to the river and to the many night markets for dinner.

        Lovely little hotel near centre of krabi town. Very clean room, with mid 1900 heritage furnishings. Fridge in the room and supplied an electric jug for use in the room when requested. Need to take care going up and down the spiral staircase to the room. Staff are happy to help with luggage. Lovely breakfast of eggs, toast coffee and juice.

        I stayed 1 night in August in one of the single bed rooms. The hotel is beautifully decorated with antiques and great attention to detail. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. You are very close to all the bars and restaurants. I cant imagine there is a better place to stay in Krabi Town.

        Lovely small hotel perfect for a night or two if staying in Krabi Town. Friendly helpful staff. Quality is much higher than 2-3 star rating would indicate. No lift so not good for those with mobility issues.

        The staffs are friendly and helpful. The room quite small but perfect for me and husband. The location is perfect, very near to night market which is open friday, saturday and sunday only. Near to the place where u can rent the motorbike. The breakfast simple, but who's care about food when u are at the center of the town? Thank you for the hospitality U Residence!

        Small charming hotel with a beautiful interior. The room was clean and comfortable, albeit small, but then it is a room for single occupancy. Staff were friendly and helpful with no problems communicating in English. Only minutes' walk from shops, restaurants, Krabi Night Market, Krabi Walking Street and Wat Kaew. Post office is only a minute's walk from the hotel, Family Mart barely a minute's walk away and a good laundry service right across the road.
