....however after reading some reviews on here, it seems like it's expected to be! This is a budget hotel and I have stayed here many times as it is centrally located, clean, has aircon and a cheap mini bar! I have seen some reviewers claiming that various things don't work, however in all the times that I have stayed here... More

Booked one night stay at the last minute as it was central and convenient. It is cheap and has very basic facilities. Air-con and most lights didn't work. Very uncomfortable bed. Disappointed, but for the price paid, I was not surprised. Wish I had paid slightly more at stayed somewhere better. On the positive, hotel taxi to airport was half... More

OK so the hotel is really old, but for me it has everything I needed. A/C, hot water and a bed to sleep in. The front desk staff is dreadful, but I found the housekeeping staff to be extremely nice and fun to talk to. Location wise it doesn't get much better. The beach is very close, and you have... More

We showed up in the Kata area with now reservations. We soon discovered there was little room availability anywhere. We were desperate to stay in the area and finally found The Little Mermaid. We were happy about the price, but of course you get what you pay for. The hotel is old and has seen better days. It needs some... More

This hotel is inexpensive (about $30 is US per day), but what is the old saying---you get what you pay for. Maintenance at the hotel is poor to nonexistent. No hot water in bathroom sink. No water in hotel for two days and we were shuttled to three different rooms as the AC failed----in three weeks at the hotel, we... More

Not the place you want to stay in Karon - It is very, very cheap - but you Do NOT get what you are paying for. No water most days (can't even flush the toilet.) No hot water any day... No TV, no Wifi, and the desk staff will steal from you, and lie to you... Mogens, the owner of... More

I've been to Karon many times, and would rate it as my favorite destination worldwide. I love everything about it , now with one exception, The Little Mermaid. I'd been there for drinks a number of times and decided on dinner there. It's hard to get a bad meal anywhere in Thailand, but The Little Mermaid is the exception that... More
