I was looking forward to test this hotel, as my sister had been travelling to Koh Samui for more than twenty years, and used to stay there. The location is good. But as a whole, I wouldn't recommend. Not only because of the rooms - especially the total lack of view over any landscape (the balcony of the room in... More

Rock hard beds, not close to the action of Chaweng beach (45min walk), beach completely full of sun beds reserved for the more expensive bungalows resort. The wifi never worked, sign on the front desk the entire stay of 4 nights saying that it was down! When in fact all they needed to do was provide the password for the... More

After a month of traveling around Thailand I learned to only book sight unseen for one night. I got there tired and in the dark. The beach looked good. The room was sweltering. I understand it takes time. I spoke at check in about extending my stay. The manager called me asking about it I ssked about gettinga room with... More

The hotel is good and confortable. The only problem, and not a small one, is the cleanness. Although our room was made everyday, it was never as clean as you expect. The shower curtain had fungus. It looked like it was never cleaned. Bed sheets were stained too. Besides this, the rest of the room was nice. The hotel is... More

Beds rock hard, theres no quilt cover on the bed , they use an old itchy blanket .the bathrooms are smelly, there mould every where. The owners are very penny pinching, they do not like to spend on the up keep. The old man manager is the worse thing about this place, his rude, sly and unwelcoming , when he... More

We took our chances and arrived on Koh Samui without accommodations reserved. Big mistake! Took us over an hour of resort hopping by taxi to finally give up and stay at First House. The price was definitely less than other resorts, but considerably more than the accommodations warranted. The rooms were basic and spartan. Beds were so hard that I... More

I have recently stayed in the hotel for 15 nights, before arriving at the hotel I was a bit concerned after having read the reviews, but my experience here was totally different, yes the standard room did not have a view but this was not a problem I kept my curtains shut which also helped to keep the room cool....

The hotel used to be wonderful, our group has been coming here for 15 years - really like their tag line 'budget luxury' but it's just a budget hotel without the luxury. The pool closed after our first day - without warning. I get that happens sometimes... But the really frustrating part was when I spoke to the manager about... More

We just returned from our trip and this hotel is the last hotel at the end of the road. It is too far from the central shops, the rooms were very old and small with horrible outside view, and my bed sheets had blood stains on them. I would not stay at this hotel ever again. The pool was fairly... More

We stayed in a family room which was huge with plenty of space for our family. The second bedroom had no windows which created a great dark space to encourage the young ones to sleep in! The pool was fantastic and my 6 year old spent many hours swimming in it. When the weather was good the beach in front... More
