For the price point, it's just an average hotel. I'd say spend a little more for something better or less and get something similar. Pros: Clean Close to pier and shops Cons Close to shops The people working at the hotel are miserable

It was really hard to find a nice place to stay in Phi Phi and even though JJ Residence was clean and functional, it was nothing special. We paid the same money in Krabi for an outstanding hotel, so turning up to this was really disappointing. It is a great location, but the WiFi doesn't work and the receptionist doesn't... More

great little room that opened directly to the pool. Easy walk to cafes, fire shows and tour spots. The staff was very helpful. The room was spotlessly clean and the shower was wonderfully large! There were friendly cats on the porch and it just had a great vibe to it!

Was very worried when picking a place on Phi Phi as it was difficult and there were too many ! Someone was at the pier waiting for us after the ferry had arrived, not too far from the pier and not too far from the bars/beaches. Perfect location i would say. The rooms were comfy and nice, flat screen tv,... More

From the options I saw on the small island of Phi Phi, I would say JJ Residence/ Guesthouse is a pretty decent hotel. There is construction going on beside their guesthouse. You may book JJ Residence & get a room in their detached Guest House around the corner. The room was spacious & there was also a view of the... More

My girlfriend and I (27 and 26) stayed for a single night in Feb 2015. We found this to be a great little hotel, seemingly with a quieter atmosphere than the rest of the busy that is Ko Phi Phi and ok value The room was well styled, very clean, great bed, flat screen, safe box, efficient aircon, good shower,...

Very nice and clean room. Easy walk to anywhere. Nice pool and great food in walking distance. Staff was very helpful in everything we requested. Very relaxing stay there! While it is plain, room is spotless, aircon works great and bedding is fresh and clean!

Really enjoyed our one night at JJ a week ago. When we arrived at the pier a rep was unexpectedly waiting for us and walked us the few minutes to JJ. The room was really great, all walls were stained wood and the room was clean and faced the pool. A couple chairs outside and a walk right into the... More

You will struggle to find a nice room for a cheap price in phi phi. My boyfriend and I struggled to find somewhere that was both clean and well situated and were very pleased to come across this place. The rooms are big and very clean and it is close to all the bars and restaurants but far enough away... More
