      Ordinary hotel with the small pool, value for money. Good breakfasts.

      It's a good hotel for the price. Some of the staff are very friendly.

      No wifi in certain rooms, only those facing the pool seem to have that.

      i liked the proximity to all services ,and the maid that cleaned our room was the friendliest and nicest girl that made sure everythiing was always spot on ,and the desk staff were the same ,lovely helpful people that made our stay a delight, we will be back.

      It was nice hotel, the situation was good, it was easy to take taxi from the hotel.

    • Couple

      Nice hotel, situated at the south of Chaweng Beach: far enough to avoid the noisy area, but close enough to walk. The beach is at 5 minutes walk, however you should also go to try the beaches from Lamai. The room was big and clean, with a decent balcony. As they promised, the staff provided daily drinking water, coffee and tea (to do it yourself) for free. The breakfast was delicious (if I remember well, i had a fried egg, ham, fresh juice, toast with butter and jam, fresh fruits: papaya and watermelon). The wifi wasn't free in the room, but they had 3 PCs at the reception with free internet access (usable up to 23 o clock). The swimming pool was clean and we swam a couple of times, but the don't have (or turn on) the jacuzzi as I though they will.

      The bathroom was modern, but not really new (there where chalk stains on the sink, the shower was a little rusty), however it was nice and clean. The water temperature changed sometimes during the shower from warm to cold, but this happened to me at almost all hotels in Thailand.

      location was slightly out the way which i liked - staff very freindly and pool and spa great

    • Couple
      7.4

      May not be the best value on the island (there are beach bungalows for similar prices nearby), but it was pretty good and gives better service and cleaner than a bungalow. Room was clean, no bugs at all. Beds were comfortable. The room had plenty of furniture. The bathroom was fair, they cleaned the room every day and gave fresh towels, air conditioning worked very well, breakfast buffet was good, our balcony was big, looked down over the pool, pool was nice, plenty to do on the street while not being in the overwhelming resort/bar/shopping strip. There's a great place to rent scooters across the street for 200 baht a day ($6.50 U.S.), and a few decent restaurants within a short walk. Beach and shopping/resort area is a 10 minute walk

      They charged us 800 baht ($26.50 U.S.) for a lost room key, which we thought was crazy. That's not much less than a night in the hotel. Ask for the chart of addtional fees when you check in. Every hotel in Thailand treats toilet tissue like a rare commodity so make sure you ask for extra when you check in. Take a roll with you when you go out for the day, you'll need it.

      The room was big and comfortable. Close to the airport.

      In the toilet the tab was leaking and as a result the floor was wet all the time (we had 5 rooms all together, and it turned out in the morning, that they had the same problem in all 5 rooms). In our room there were previous guests hair on toilet floor. The restaurant was the biggest disappointment. Some of us did not get the drinks we ordered- they simply forgot! The ones that ordered food first got the food last (after others had already finished their food). The portions were really small, we ordered steak and fries - there were 6 pieces of french fries!!!! And the staff spoke very bad english. We waited 30 min to get the bills, finaly we left, leaving the money on the table! Absolutely incompetent staff!

      good value for money, it is a quiet hotel, friendly staff

    • Single

      I liked the location, near to malls and city night life. The personnel was friendly.

      The airco was old and very noisy.

    • Older travelers

      Good location, exellent price and staff.

    • Group of friends
      7.8

      Clean, good location if having a motor bike, staff friendly, and the swimming pool was nice.

      The locatoin is good for people renting motor bikes but little far if walked to the main shopping area.
