Best hotel I've stayed in in Thailand bar none!

Posted 02-Aug-2014
Pros: Breakfast ,room sizes,staff.
Cons: The beds were very hard for my liking,maybe they could get some mattress toppers for guests on request,if they had this then I would give this hotel10
Location: Just across the road from the beach,and a large shopping mall about ten minutes walk down the road.
Lovely small hotel with the nicest staff and owners I have ever met in all my 20 years coming to Thailand,huge room and spotless clean,very good breakfast and they did not charge extra for my sons,most hotels charge if there is more than 2 in the room usually 200baht per day for extra persons breakfast.really cheap for laundry as well.

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!!

Clean, friendly, quiet and the best night market!

Posted 14-Mar-2014 on Hotels.com
We stayed here for two nights and were very happy with the friendliness and service of the staff. Our room was clean and spacious, with a balcony, and was quiet. Wifi worked well in the room. The pool was really lovely - I swam each day. Breakfast was buffet style with a number of choices to suit most people. Bananas, tea and coffee were available all day. The beach is only 5 minutes walk and I found the main road easy to cross, then you just walk straight ahead down a straight roadway to the beach. There is a new three level Market shopping centre just a few minutes' walk away. The night market was a little further along, and it was absolutely fantastic. They sold everything you could want and at really good prices. I totally recommend allowing good time to wander around here. I walked further downtown with ease although it takes a little time. Easier later in the day when the sting has gone out of the sun. We found a lovely restaurant downtown to eat traditional food at good prices. If we stayed longer we would have gone to the beautiful beach more and used the 10 thb songtaews (little utes and trucks) around town to see a little more. An easy way to venture around. I stumbled across the Tourism Office who were helpful as well. We also found a 200thb per person shuttle service to the airport. They charged us another 200thb for our two bags and then sold that seat to someone else and our bags were in the passageway. Still, 600thb was better than 2000thb for a taxi!

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!
