Had a really pleasant stay, the rooms were very nice and clean. Towels expertly folded into different shapes everyday. Very friendly and helpful staff.5min walk to the private beach at sister hotel First House Hotel which was a lovely beach. Good value too, would definitely recommend this hotel if you're staying in this area.

Our family stayed at the hotell seven nights in January 2016, and we have nothing to complain about. The hotell is only a five minutes walk to the beautiful Chaweng Beach, and close to restaurants and bars. The staff was the best, superfriendly and helpful, and the breakfast buffé really good. Nice, clean rooms with cleaning every day. We highly... More

We spent a lot of time in our room here because of the rain and we were glad it was so clean and modern. Particularly nice to have hot water and a bath tub. Daily cleaning and free towels all for such a small price. Located just off the main street but you can still walk to everything easily. The... More

Came to stay here over Christmas for 6 days. We was very surprised how nice and clean it was for a budget hotel. The location is perfect, we got a ped out for the day times and in the evenings used the tuk tuk trucks which cost 50 baht per person. The size of the room was perfect! The rooms... More

Very large rooms and very centrally located. Sometimes younger crowd can be rather noisy. Clean rooms and accomidating staff. Close to beach as well as motorbike rentals etc without being in the central noisy part of Chaweng.

I found this hotel to be very pleasing. I paid around 1300 baht for my room and was pleasantly surprised at what I got. The room was large and spacious although the bed was a bit hard; I saw they offered mattress toppers on request but I wasn't too bothered by it. The hotel was clean and the air con... More
