But mind you, they provide everything they vouch for! Like they say they have bed, TV, wifi, ac and nothing more. Nothing! No soap or fridge or anything out of the list. Their aircon does overtime but the room stays hot and humid. The hot water geyser mostly doesn't work but you wouldn't mind given the humid and hot atmosphere... More

This is the worst place a ever stayed. The humidity smell is terrible, everything is wet in the room. Very old, no tv, no fridge, dirty sheets, dirty toilet, and not safe... The location is the only good thing of the hotel (if you want to go to party) if not is quite a long walk to the beach or... More

Good location, music late but nowhere near as loud as near the beach. Good basic rooms, only downside is the bed doona has blood stains on it and no cover. But clean otherwise. Cheaper if you just turn up and book. Phi phi is better to just turn up and have a look as there are lots of cheap rooms... More

The place is filthy, and stinks of humidity. The doors are not safe at all, they can be open easily. The staff seems nice but they just don't care and tell you to come back to get your problem fixed at the times they are off. The staff got into the room and took bak a book that i was... More

We arrived at the hotel to a vile, dark, small room. Dirty bed, smelly bathroom, holes/stains on the bed sheets, leaking air conditioning and very noisy from the nightlife. The staff were ok but you can definitely stay at better accommodation. (We moved to JJ residence which was lovely) If you want to have a pleasant stay do not book... More

We stayed here on a whim, wishing to be in a central location on Phi Phi. Located in the heart of the town The JC Andersen hotel offered an air-conditioned room for 600 baht per night. They provide safety deposit boxes, however you must bring your own padlock. We didn't and they were happy to put our valuables in the... More

Having recently stayed here I feel obligated to warn travelers of the unhealthy conditions of the rooms. They were extremely damp and smelt strongly of mould and strong cleaning products. The smell of which still lingers in my clothes. The bathroom doors were rotting away and the shower water did not drain. To add insult to injury there were blood... More
