Very close to a beautiful beach and great restaurants. Staff are all superb. They are always on hand and very helpful. Nothing is too small a task. Excellent wi fi very fast and doesn't fail. Has it's own small restaurant and breakfast and meals available all to a high standard. I would recommend to anybody thinking of visiting Hue Hin.
Perfect for short breaks by the sea

Located just 100 yards from the beach along a quiet lane this charming boutique property ticks many boxes for solo travellers, couples and families. The ground floor rooms enjoy direct pool access via a wooden deck and steps. There is also a small rooftop pool. The breakfast was perfectly satisfactory with a choice of Asian and western cooked dishes, cereals, fruit and cakes plus juices and coffee/tea. The staff were helpful and courteous. There is a small car park for about 6 cars at the main entrance. The rooms are well equipped and nicely furnished. This property is on the southern edge of the town of Hua Hin and so guests must consider transport options. Presumably the front desk staff will arrange taxis etc. Convenience stores such as 7/11 are within walking distance.The hotel is situated in a quiet location immediately adjacent to the Seapine golf course. There are seafood restaurants and snack bars on this section of the beach. Excellent value for money.
Small Hotel With A Lot To Offer
Reviewed 12 March, 2018
I found the Bihai by accident while looking for a nice hotel to celebrate my wife's and my first wedding anniversary. A little out of the way, it sits on a small soi (street) on the south end of Hua Hin, near Khao Takiab, where the "monkey temple" sits. The beach is a one minute walk away where you will find numerous beach-front restaurants and bars, a wide, beautiful stretch of sand, endless beach chairs and umbrellas (many of which can be used for free if you are eating at the restaurant/bar that owns them), and tons of friendly Thais waiting to serve you. Prices at the restaurants and bars are a little high, but you're sitting on the beach, so that's to be expected.
The hotel itself is small, with only fifteen rooms on three floors. The ground floor rooms have balcony access to their own swimming pool and are priced accordingly. We had a third-floor room for which we paid 1800 baht per night (roughly $60 US), but I found it well worth the price. The rooms with access to the ground floor pool went for 2800 baht per night. We were there in mid-march, so the rooms are likely higher during "high season" (December-February).
The rooms are large, very clean, and very comfortable. Every room/balcony looks out over the neighboring golf course, so your views are pleasant. There is a small but very nice swimming pool on the roof for the other rooms to utilize (you can't access the ground floor pool unless you are staying in one of those rooms). An excellent breakfast is included in the price. You are within walking distance of a 7-11 in case you want to grab some beer/booze/wine/snacks to take back to your room. One of the very few negatives about this place is that there's no ice machine, so you'll need to grab some ice for your drinks. One other marginally negative aspect is taht you are away from the middle of town, so you'll need transportation back to the action (taxi/motorbike rental). Otherwise, the service, location, and facilities were all excellent.
I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would have no problem whatsoever staying here again. If you're looking for a really nice hotel at a reasonable price, this is it.
Cute little place with great service

Stayed here for 2 nights, the hotel is very clean and well taken care of - the staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. They only have about 15 rooms in total, and the grounds are very small, but they make it up with good service and a great buffet breakfast.
The pools are nice to have right there at your door - my son loved to jump in, the public beach is walking distance, and has 3 good restaurants right there for convenience. Overall we really liked this place - was good value for money and worked for our small family.
The Wifi doesn't always work though, on the second floor it's very good, but in the downstairs areas it cuts off often.
Very good service

The hotel is really cute - small but great service! The staff are very accommodating and attentive and are always there to help and support.
The breakfast was really good, with a lot of variety which was really nice! The pool right outside your room is nice - my son loved to jump right in and swim, and the large porch was great for having a relaxing evening after a long day. There is free WiFi throughout the hotel, but it didn't really work downstairs...but upstairs it worked very well.
The location of the hotel is alright, it's walking distance from a public beach which has 3 restaurants there for lunches or dinners with fresh seafood and a variety of Thai dishes. The beach is a public beach, so it's quite dirty, I wouldn't recommend small children swimming in it, but it's great for walks or just to sit and chill.
