I booked this hotel before reading any reviews on TA and after seeing so many negative reviews I was very worried about staying here and even considered changing hotel before I even saw the room. But luckily I didn't as the hotel and the room were fine, basic but clean and were cleaned everyday. There is a bit of mould... More

What i really liked was mrs lee. She was a nice person. The rooms are good enough for the money since pp is expensive. Unfortunately there is mold in the bathroom but well the rest of the room was clean and they also do a cleaningservice everyday. Just open the window everytime you can and turn on the fan!

It was OK but there was lot more cons then pros. The location was good. We had no internet in our rooms and the one in lobby was poorly executed and was breaking everyday. No hot water and the cold one was not so clean. Staff was pretty cold and uninterested. Now I know there is better accommodation for that... More

We loved to stay here. The rooms are basic but very clean. The location was perfect for us, near to everything but it's quite so you can sleep well. The wifi isn't realy good, you have to pay when you like to have wifi in your room. But we loved Miss Lee.. She is very kind and helpfull. When you... More

Spent 4 nights here in a twin room with fan, in hindsight would have been better with air con which you can have if you spend a little extra. Room was basic, clean and tidy, was cleaned every day to a good standard, we had sarongs to use as bed sheets which was more than enough given the heat. The... More

We stayed at Banthai Guesthouse for 4 nights and had the best time. Mrs Lee was so friendly and helpful. The rooms were comfortable and we had no problems with water or electricity. The wifi worked 90% of the time and we were very happy with the price. Its quiet although close to the beaches and bars so was easy... More

This was by far the worst place we have stayed in 5 months travelling around south east asia. Miss Lee was originally very friendly although she deep keep barking new rules to follow. The room itself was smelly and damp but we have had rooms like that before but when the water broke 3 times in 10 minutes, smelly sewer... More

We had intended to visit Koh Phi Phi for a day trip, but after my friend stepped in glass, we spent most of the afternoon in the medical centre and so sought a place to stay for the night. We unfortunately chose Ban Thai Guesthouse. The greeting we received from Mrs. Lee, the owner, was abrasive at best, rapidly descending... More

Was high season in Phi Phi and it was impossible to find out another place to stay. Stay here just if you don't have money or another option. Bathroom is horroble and the bed is like sleepong on the floor. The owner is really crazy and will ask you 1.000 baths for the key deposit. Stay away from this place!

Ok, place was cheap, but geez, manager/owner of this place has no consideration for its guests! She was rude and did not let us use the bathroom in the lobby after we checked out... If you stay there, you'll also have to share your bathroom with cockroaches! Also, the mattress was very thin and uncomfortable. My advice: STAY AWAY FROM... More
