The only good thing was the location. Got a room in the basement, no wiew, moldy smelling, very moist room. Rock hard bed and staff that don't speak much english, to expensive for what you get! Wouldn't come here again, ever!

Modest hotel close to beach. Reasonably priced, clean rooms. The best thing about this hotel is the attitude of the staff, which can sometimes be hit and miss in Thailand. Friendly, courteous and attentive. I have no problem recommending this hotel.

I really liked this hotel. The staff are super polite and helpful, which was a rare occurrence on my three-week trip in Phuket. The hotel is basic on all fronts, but it serves well as a place to sleep and it's a short walk to the beach. The bed was comfortable, air con was fully functional and the room is... More

Such a nice and hidden place in crowded Kata Beach, Phuket. Only a few minutes walk to the beach. We stayed here for one night during our holiday in Thailand. Rooms are clean and furnished in Thai style. Also the staff was very friendly and coorperative.

Just perfect location and awesome staff. Location suberb, just 5-7 min. walk to the beach, only 1 cross the street. Breakfast is not so wide, but enough to fill your stomach to go on :) Only one thing that bothered was AC -roof, which had a bit mold. My sister sneezed but I didn´t had any problems. Rooms are very... More

Kata Minta is a lovely traditional style small hotel. The hotel is situated on a busy road and opposite a bar and restaurant, and whilst we had concerns about the noise it was not an issue at night. Our room 302 was a at the front of the hotel, centre point under the Kata Minta sign with a nice big... More

Kata Minta is truly a hidden treasure, near to the beaches of Kata and especially Kata Noi, but away from the typical tourist rumble. The traditional boutique style (which is actually northern Thai or 'Lanna') and friendly staff will make you feel almost like a family member. The excellent manager, Wee, deserves a special compliment, for outstanding service and making... More

My boyfriend and I spent one night in the Kata Minta while at Kata beach in Phuket. Our experience was a wonderful one. After looking at many reviews online trying to find a hotel that was a good value we decided on this one. Although this hotel does not have direct beach access it is only a 2 minute walk... More
