Decided to split our time in Koh samui between here and Choeng Mon as we thought our kids ( aged 16 and 18 ) would like to have some time at the busier Chaweng. We were so happy to have eventually chosen the Library. Being such a small hotel the service is extremely good. Pool staff always arranged our "... More

We tried to book rooms from Bangkok by phone. After speaking to a series of unidentified persons we finally were told that someone would call us back. As we had no feedback, we tried one more time, and we got the same answer. Nobody ever called us back. As we knew that it was low season, when we arrived in... More

This was our second stay at the Library. I guess you get to see the standard of a hotel when you come back 1 year later and all the staff remember you! We love this place for its simple, not in your face service, clean modern rooms but mostly we love the Library for the Page restaurant. My husband and... More

Nice, convenient location, walking disctance to other places (bars and restaurants). Restaurant is very good and fun, but we could not afford (or did not) to eat here more then once. Rooms and service was very good. A lot of hipe people from Bangkok (and Chiang Mai).

Location: It is located right on Chaweng Beach and is close to shops, restaurants, ATMs, night-clubs etc. Once you pass the reception, it is a rather quiet place. It is a nice change from the bustle of Chaweng Beach. Room: Room is very large and spacious even for the studio room. It has everything one expects in a hotel of... More

Just step out and you are amongst the buzz, nightlife n streets lined with bars n cafes. Inside the RED pool takes you to another level. Staff is fantastic... More
