We stayed there two nights, and this was the worst place ever that I was staying in. I don't mind the lady, but rooms were stinky and dirty, I was afraid to lay down, thinking that something for sure will jump over me. The only good thing about it is that it is close to everywhere, but I am sure... More

The whole experience of this place was negative from the check in to the quality of the rooms. Right down to the 1000 thb key deposit everything about Ban Thai guesthouse is about cash in the owners pocket rather than customer satisfaction. The owner is an ex police woman that treats every customer as a criminal with short sharp demanding... More

I recently stayed at the guesthouse with my 2 fellow travellers and we all left after saying our emotional goodbyes to miss lee feeling truly blessed to have stayed under her roof on such a beautiful island. After reading previous reviews we were left unsure if we had stayed at the same guesthouse as these people, as miss lee is... More

I can recommend The Banthai Guest House. I stayed there for 4 nights in the start of october. The room was nice and tidy. Ms Lee was very nice and helpfull. The location is good. There are many restaurants and nightclubs close to the guest house.

Unfortunately, we had to stay here because we didn't have any other reservation during peak season(January 2013). We payed 1600 TBH/night which is soooo overpriced. Room was dirty, no wi-fi. Aircon was not working properly so when was ON, it was like in a fridge. And that woman receptionist came directly from hell! Really, avoid this place! You better sleep... More

If you can, give this place a miss. My boyfriend and I arrived on Phi Phi at Thai New Year. We were drenched with water guns as soon as we stepped off the boat lugging around two backpacks each and stupidly having no reservations made, we walked into Banthai hoping for some refuge! Other places we had stopped in on... More

This is the worst place I have ever stayed in.The owner MissLee ,although initially appears quirky,is horrible.She demands a deposit(our own fault for paying it)and uses every excuse to keep it.
