Not bad at all. Clean, air con, decent showers, extras that many cheap hotels don't include such as TV, tea/coffee/biscuits, towels etc. The 'city view' balcony may be somewhat of an exaggeration in that it's a brick wall but overall a decent basic hotel in Krabi. Recommend it!

Probably one of the best hotels I've stayed in in Southeast Asia. The staff were really nice and helped out even though they know little English. The owner went out of his way to help us book a bus ticket even though it was sold out online and we needed call in to book it. He also helped arrange a... More

Firstly I have to say the trip advisor map is completely incorrect to where forumhouse is located! So make sure you tell them the name of the place, don't tell them it's near tiger kingdom as it's not!! This place was ideal for what we paid. The room was huge, and fairly clean. There was a mosquito net around the... More

Good price, great place to stay. We had a huge room, with a balcony. Well, the view didn't worth to spend any time on the balcony. :D Though we had a place where we could dry our clothes after a super hot day. :) We didn't like Krabi itself at all, but we came to this town to extend our... More

My fiance and i had been travelling around asia for a few months and found the forum house as a cheap stopover in between destinations. We managed to check in earlier and had a lovely big room, comfortable bed, air conditioning and desk with fridge. The wifi wasn't too bad either. We were only staying for a few days so... More

If there is one thing above all that is tedious about so many hotels in Thailand, it is the complete and utter inability to maintain equipment such as air con, TVs and showers. The Thai version of maintenance is to wait for a customer complaint about something not working and then lie / not apologise / do as little as... More

Stayed here one night for around 600 BHT in peak season. The 2 bed room was good looking, clean and big and staff was very friendly and helpful. There was a waterboiler, a/c and hot water. We were allowed to choose the room over reception 2nd floor or outside on ground level. We chose the latter one and I would... More
