5 minutes walk to Chaweng Beach; you don't need to take a cab if you don't plan to go outside Chaweng. Even if you do, you can take the minibuses just in front of the hotel. The service was excellent. The water is free of charge, there is an elevator, they give you towels if you want to as you... More

I stayed here for 4 days with my girlfriend and loved it. Very tasteful decor, very comfortable beds, super clean and new accommodations. We also love the little good priced cafeteria and the location as well. It feels like a 5 star small hotel!

Stayed here for 1 night. Located in chaweng close to the town within walking distance. Rooms are reasonably spacious, clean with nice set up. It is quite a considerate set up where the bathroom & toilet are separated & there's microwave with basic cutleries if occupants want to prepare or heat up their food. Welcomed by a cute little mOnkey... More

Clean, modern and stylish hotel with spacious rooms and friendly staff in the middle zof the city. Beds are big and really comfortable. Nice little rooftop pool. There was nothing to complain about. Didn't try the breakfast, but the coffee was not that overwhelming. Perfect for a short stay in Chaweng and absolutely value the money.

So I tried to find any hotel in Koh Samui and I got to this because of the price and the quality I identified in the photos of the hotel. I realized it was an excellent choice, because... More
