Spot On!

Posted 20-Mar-2014
This hotel is perfect! This was our second visit to Hua Hin and the location of this is brilliant. There is so much in close proximity and only couple of minutes from centre. Hotel staff couldn't do enough for you and they also have their own Tuk Tuk which we used. The breakfast was fine, choice of Asian and English breakfast items. Always fresh and tasty. Room cleaning was spot on!! Would definitely stay there again. Oh and don't forget the lovely pool and garden!!

Pleasant hotel and staff

Posted 30-Sep-2013
We stayed at Smile Hua Hin Resort for four nights in September 2013. The hotel is situated about 10 minutes south of city centre by car/bus. As the hotel is situated away from the main road, it is a relatively quiet area. 10 minutes walk to Hua Hin Market Village shopping centre where there is a great supermarket and a food court near the entrance to the supermarket. In front of the hotel are several restaurants and massage places. Our room was very nice, clean and spacious with a king bed, small fridge and a kettle. The hotel provided us with two bottles of water each day. There is a small workout room and a small pool which is adequate for short laps and a quick cooling off. Free breakfast was appreciated, but was just ok. The staff were friendly and nice. From the hotel you can walk to the beach about 10 minutes away. From the beach you can walk to Khao Takiab or Monkey Mountain in about 45 minutes. We would recommend this place and would stay again.

Very clean

Posted 02-Aug-2013 on Hotels.com
This is the cleanest hotel I have stayed in. The pool is nice and the breakfast was ok. It is not far from the beach but you have to cross the main street. I wish there was no window to the outside in the bathroom because you can hear outside noise.

Lovely Owners & great Hotel

Posted 28-May-2013 on Hotels.com
Its a nice cosy place run by a lovely warm couple who have tastefully decorated and maintained the hotel. Its a little distance from the main road and right across the road is the beach. the Bus station is short walk from the hotel, so no need to hire a private taxi. The staff is very warm and helpful. The location is ok but the place is very nice. I would recommend this to everyone who goes to Hua Hin..

Reasons you won't Smile after you check in Smile

Posted 23-Apr-2013
Pros: Nothing good though
Cons: really lousy
Location: 30 mins to downtown, 15 mins to beach
Despite I spend my last 12 months travel around the world and stay in a lot of different hotels, I rarely write a bad review as I stayed in a lot of lousy hotels in china before. This time I wrote merely hope you won't have an unpleasant stay in Hua Hin, like mine. Problems with this Smile hotels are: 1. Super thick pillow (1.5 times of iphone height, see photo) -> neck pain next day 2. Super hard mattress(see photo) -> back pain next day 3. Dirty and aged towel(see photo) -> i use my own hand towel to wipe important part 4. Aged interior(see photo) 5. Lousy toilet (see photo) 6. Shower like pee(see photo) -> it takes long time to finish a shower 7. Toiletries are awful -> luckily I have my own shower gel and shampoo 8. Swimming pool -> a bigger bath tub and not a pool! The picture you've seen on their website is totally different 9. Tiny balcony with air con ventilator -> super hot and you wont stay there 10. Poor location -> downtown 30 mins, beach 15 mins Anyway, I write merely don't want your holiday being spoilt (like mine) because of your stay in this lousy motel!

Bad Experience

Hotels.com would not let me write down the horrid details of my experience at this hotel. It was as bad as it gets.

Nice Hotel

Posted 27-Mar-2013
The Smile Hua Hin was a great experience and I would recommend this hotel to anyone. It is new, clean, well equipped, friendly staff and nice rooms, breakfast area and pool. The wifi signal was strong and reliable in my room. If there was anything to complain about, it would be the location. It is a bit far from the main downtown area, and a 300m walk to the beach (crossing a busy street) but in the big picture those were minor issues for me.
