I have to admit that I'm surprised by the lowly rating of this hotel (51 out of 57 at the time of writing). Whilst not the best I've stayed in during my Asian travels, I found the rooms to be well appointed, the bathroom perfectly adequate and (most of) the staff quite friendly - the older guy at reception was a bit of a grumpy mother hen, but the others were smiling and pleasant. I agree with the other reviewer that the balcony was laughably small and the pool is more somewhere to cool off than train for the Olympics.
The buffet seemed fine (but I'm more of a coffee and cigarette man in the morning) and the local area has enough eating options to mean that I didn't sample the hotel food at all during my stay.
Overall, I found the hotel to be a bit pricey for what you get but perfectly adequate for my needs, close to beach, restaurant and nightlife - there are definitely worse places to stay in Karon.
