I have had some mates that have stayed in Jings
The place is in the centre of the night life area, so not far to get home at the end of the night. They gave very good reports about the place, no extra charge for guests or problems with the place being friendly to their guests.
Test idea before you book anywhere is to email the hotel first, ask the relevant questions and then if they send a positive reply, take a copy of that email with you, just in case there are any problems.
You will find plenty of cool laid back bars there, nowhere near as busy as Phuket or Pattaya, but I always feel like I have had a holiday when I leave Hua Hin as you feel very relaxed. My trips to Phuket in particular, I feel like I need another holiday to get over the holiday I have just had.
If would advise you to book a cab pick up from BKK airport or whereever you will be in BKK, so you can bypass the minivans, dodgy airport cabs, local bus etc. I was in Hua Hin just over a year ago and used the local Hua Hin cab company that advertises on this website. If you cannot find it I think I have the details still on file.
They turned up at my hotel in Bangkok on time, driver was 100% safe, car as a late model 4WD and all in all a good trip. From memory was around the 2500baht range. After travelling to Hua Hin previously by Local Bus from BKK, minivan from BKK and airport cab. The local guys are by far the best bet.
Have a great trip
