Great late night live entertainment. Calypso cover band singers are very good. Servers are friendly. HIGHLY RECOMMEND if you enjoy chilling with some friends and drinks and listening to fun cover band songs!

Karon Calypso Guesthouse gives you good value for the money, and is located in the "heart" of Karon. Pim and Dave are incredible hosts, and gives you a very warm welcome. This is my 4th stay in Karon the last 10 months. I have tried other (more expensive hotels), but I will definitly book at Calypso again next time. See... More

I had a really enjoyable ten day stay at this guesthouse and certainly would return to it again if I go back to Phuket. The staff were really nice and they tried to do everything to make me feel at home. The location is great and only a few minutes walk from the beautiful beach in Karon. The food in... More

Karon Calypso Guest house is a budget hotel which is very ideal for budget travelers. The location is good, nearby restaurants, stalls and shopping areas, walking distance to Karon beach. Most importantly, the hotel staffs were friendly, accommodating and very helpful. The hotel itself has its own restaurant with one-piece band singer, who entertains the guests with his rock n...

My family and I stayed in the cosy Karon Calypso that is situated in Karon Beach. Location was very convenient, with marts, restaurants, tour agencies and beach nearby and a night market on the same street itself. The owners and staff are friendly and ever-ready to help or provide us anything that could make our stay a comfortable one. Food... More

We stayed at Calypso because it was one of the more affordable hotels in Phuket at only 400 baht for a fan room. I wish we hadn't. The room was small and basic, whilst the bathroom looked like a garden shed that had been constructed in the precious little space available. The shower was just a cold tap with a... More

This is one of the hotels that stands out in my 8 months of backpacking. Calypso is located in the perfect spot in Karon Beach--equa-distant from the beach and night market. For 500 baht, you get air con, cable TV, hot water, and a big room. Things can be a little noisy at night with loud music, but other than... More
