“Friendly staff, great location.”
Reviewed 29 July 2011

I stayed here on an organised tour from Bangkok to Singapore. A basic hotel but everything you need is within walking distance. Rooms are clean and staff were always helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel for those passing through AoNang on a budget.

Reviewed 12 April 2010

We spent a night there, the taxi from Krabi left us in the door and the Lonely Planet guide recommended it so we had a go and they could a commodate us for a night. Cannot agree more with previous reviews. Staff care more about internet than anything else, so true! I used it the minimum cos it was extremely slow which was 10 bahts and told the lady to add it to my room and I would pay in the morning cos I had my wallet upstairs, she answered very rudely she needed payment inmediatly when she wasnt even looking when I got into internet!
Place is ok, comfortable, air con, fridge, internet downstairs, 3 minutes from the beach, and felt safe but now I know there is better deals just next door as Sea World Guesthouse happened to be for us. Much better view, same kind of room and service but almost half the price.
The place is a bit crowded in the evenings of young backpackers so it can get a bit noisy, decoration is modest but nice. Our room had a view of another hotel at the back, nothing special but not too ugly either.

If you want to stay in crowded Ao Nang, this is a nice place - good value for money, big tidy rooms and bathrooms (hot water) with TV and fridge, nice roof terrace, close to the pier...

We paid 500 Baht for a double room (fan) and were happy with it. The rooms to the back (not in the direction of the waterfront) have a nicer view.

Some of the staff are very nice while others were rather interested in using the internet... nevermind.

We stayed at J Mansion in Ao Nang for 1 night between a stay on Ko Yao Noi and traveling to Ko Samui. For an room with 2 beds and A/C it was 1000B/night. Room and linens were clean, bathroom was clean and in working order. The A/C was a bit weak but there was also a fan and that helped. It was centrally located off the main street in Ao Nang. Not much to say about it. We would stay here again for convenience when in the area.

To start off with, I'd like to inform you that this review is ment for J.Mansion, and not J.Hotel (J.Mansion does not exist on TripAdvisor, but is run by the same family).

I had booked the stay at J.Mansion 2 months in advance and paid the deposit via Internet bank and received the confirmation on email. When we arrived, the girl behind the counter told us that we didn't have a room for tomorrow night due to a large group coming in?! So even though we had paid the 50% depisot for our stay, they hadn't booked our room.. So the girl offered us a better room at one of their other hotels "just around the corner" for tomorrow night, after that we could move back to J.Mansion, so we took it. It's name was Ben's House, but it would prove to be far from "just around the corner". A walk from the hotel to the bent in Ao Nang where the longtail boats gather took about 30minutes. Upset as we were about the long distance to the city, we went to discuss the matter one more time, but this time we got to talk to the owner on the place. I must say, the owner is one of the most nice and kind people that I met during out stay in Thailand and he did everything he could to sort this all out and really helped us out into feeling OK with the situation.
Now this might sound a bit negative, but J.Mansion is really an OK place. It's location is great: close to the beach and the longtail boats. Even though their "just around the corner"-claim wasn't really accurate, the staff is really kind and helpful (especially the owner). The rooms are also OK.
I only recommend you to contact them in advance just to double check that your booking is all good before you arrive there, just to be on the safe side..
