We arrived at hotel and had really good vibes- staff nice and helpful, room clean and reasonable size. Swimming pool on roof and main lobby (although both small and pretty cold). After our first night in the morning we left our key at reception and asked for the room to be made up to which they said yes of course.... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 days in July15. The rooms are really nice. They are big and clean. The staff are friendly and helpful. Only downside was the locations from the beach. You have to walk 10 mins to reach. Also the pools in the hotel are nowhere near that you can swim. So don't think about that.

More importantly what makes this hotel perfect are the amazing friendly staff headed up by the manager Jean(fantastic Lady)...These guys are always available with a smile and a winning... More

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
