Fodor's Expert Review Hometel
7 Soi 10 Maharaj Rd., Pak Nam, Krabi, Krabi, Thailand
A solid budget choice, this little family-run hotel is a great base for those using Krabi as a stepping-stone to the tropical islands beyond. The cool modern gray tones in the lobby/restaurant are balanced by the warmth of the owners. The 10 rooms are trendy and unfussy, some with balconies. The lovely little restaurant, serving Thai and western food, has a good reputation and can get pretty busy. Located across from the exotic Krabi Day Market, the orange exterior of Hometel is hard to miss.
