Everything about the Lotus Friendly Hotel was great 'the rooms, breakfast, location' was just right. The staff was the friendliest staff ever. You can ask them anything and they will be happy to help you.

We stayed 2 nights, luckily we didn't book for a whole week, because we found a really good and cheaper hotel than the Lotus Friendly Hotel. We couldn't use the Internet and when we told our problem to the manager or owner, he offered to change the room but the new room was gonna be more expensive!!! I really dont... More

The hotel is about 10min walk to the beginning of chaweng beach. 15min walk to the main area of nightlife and restaurants. The hotel itself is basic, beds with sheets, fridge, toilet and an awful cold only shower. Air-con in all 3 rooms we got had separate problems, one didn't work, the other made so much noise we couldn't sleep... More

We stayed here for one night before catching a flight and it was perfectly adequate for our needs. The manager who greeted us was really friendly and helpful. The room is pretty big and the bed was comfy. We left too early for breakfast so I can't comment on that. My only criticism would be if you can't flush the... More

We stayed on this hotel for one night. Rooms are ok, is located near the airport, and that’s pretty much it. The word friendly does not really apply. Other than Alex, the staff is as friendly as a bulldozer can be, bare minimum and necessary but that was our experience, others might have gotten a different perception. Also breakfast is... More
