Large rooms with balconies, old bathrooms, great location on a quiet street, nice pool area which was usually empty. We booked 2 rooms, our friends had much better AC than ours but it was still cool enough in our room. Hard beds, as are almost all beds in Thailand. 10-15min walk to the beach.

Hi Guys, this hotel is a good choise. Far from the traffic and close to the main road with all the amunsements and restaurant. Our room 323 was perfect, only the stairs to reach there, to many. No lift, only legs !!! The breakfast, no buffet, was poor all the days, served in a building close to the hotel, and... More

Booked a prepaid 3 night stay via Booking.com however reception close at 11PM and no way to check in despite calling and approached at opening next morning after having had to find another hotel for the night. Eventually manager refused to honour the two remaining days and preferred to double sell the room. Zero assistance from Booking.com

Stayed here for 2 nights. Room was OK but was not exactly like the photos on the website. The room we were given at first had a problem with the air conditioning which we didn't know about until the man knocked at our door, he pointed at it, muttered something then used a screwdriver to do something, then left. Soon... More

We originally booked to stay at the kata beach Center hotel for 5 nights but left before we had even stayed the first night. The room was full of problems - the balcony door lock was not particularly secure and we had a ground floor room - we could also not get the safe to work properly. The wardrobe door... More

We booked in initially for 1 night and stayed for another 4. The room was gorgeous and the Jacuzzi an added bonus. It was close enough to walk to anywhere in Kata but in a lovely quiet location. There are plenty of tour operators and internet cafes and a couple of tiny shops on the doorstep and several restaurants a... More

This is most definitely in kata not Karon and about a 5 minute walk from kata beach which meant it was perfect! It's about a 10-20 minute walk to the centre but you have no real need to go there there are plenty of restaurants, shops and street stalls minutes away! We did however struggle to find really cheap food... More

I got sick and the owner's wife went to get electrolytes for me and offered to drive me to the doctor. Nice pool, spa and restaurant. 5 to 10 minute walk to the... More
