Koh samui The place was clean and a great surprise for what we paid. Choose the room with air con during the summer (march-april) not the fan, because it was impossible to sleep!!!!!! TO HOT! The man working here was so nice, always wondering how you are and also very helpful. The resturant makes the best pasta, and its all... More

My husband and I stayed here in transition from diving to heading home. We were scheduled to stay two nights but only stayed one because of a mix-up with our dive schedule. Our taxi driver from Lompraya had a hard time finding the place, but it seemed easy to find once we had gotten there. I think if you take... More

Nice little room with a tv and DVDs which were nice touches. The room and bathroom were clean and well maintained. The restaurant downstairs looks cool and we were gutted we didn't have time to eat there! The couple that own it were wonderful hosts and we would stay here again for sure.

Alright hotel really really nice people run it! But our aircon had broken and so we were so so hot!! We could barely sleep they brought us a fan but it made no difference. They have us a free breakfast on our last morning to apologise which was really nice though. The area is good and the rooms are basic... More

The guys running the place are very welcoming and you get a great value for your money. It's incredibly clean and you can eat authentic freshly cooked Italian food (the smell is amazing). We stayed in the air-con room, it's a steep climb but April is the hottest month.

This is a family operated hotel that's perfect for the budget traveler. The owner speaks good English, she helped us to navigate our way around the island. Very friendly staff, great service. Good access to the beach and all that Chaweng Beach has to offer. I definitely recommend this place.
