“Very good hotel with nice staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here eleven nights and we were very satisfied. Even if we had an extra bed there was a lot of space left. The staff was very nice and service minded. If we return to Karon Beach we will stay here again.

Stayed at the Simplitel with my girlfriend for 10 nights in October, and I have to say it was one of the best hotels that I have ever stayed, we had a double room which was quite big, we had a balcolny faced the main street, not too noisy because we were in a high floor room. In the distance we could see the big buddha and a partial sea view. The room was bright,airy and very clean, The buffet breakfast was served on the second floor and had western options.The service in the hotel was excellent and the staff very friendly and helpful. It was located in the main Street in Karon which had many excellent restaurants. Try the Red Onion next door to the hotel the food there is superb. The beach was a five minute walk away, and was very clean. A market is held in the temple twice a week which has excellent food to buy as well as many souvenirs. Day trips can be booked from many places located around Karon. The night market in Phuket town is well worth a visit. Overall a excellent hotel in a nice town which has many attractions on offer. I recommend this hotel to anyone planning a stay in Phuket.

Room Tip: If you book a room facing the street make sure it is on one of the higher floors.

While the room was simple and basic, the location was great. Close to the beach, tons of restaurants nearby. Also comes with breakfast included. Deducting one star because there was a slight smell of mildew in the bathroom, and 2 of the 3 nights the hot water in the shower wasn't hot enough (the receptionist told us we needed to turn on the A/C for at least 15 minutes for the hot water to come, which we tried, but somehow it still didn't work). But overall, good value for the price and recommended for travelers on a budget.

We checked out after the first night as a lot of water had leaked out onto the floor and into my luggage. Management wrote me an email apologising which was nice.
More suited to young people who are out and about all the time. Clean rooms, very basic breakfast - what you pay for.

Room Tip: Probably wise to spend a little extra money on 'Free' Cancellation when you book, just in ca...

As the name of the hotel suggests, it is simple, but that's all we needed! Simplitel is in a great location in Karon, close to many good places to eat and just 5mins walk up the road to the beach and 5mins in the opposite direction to the markets. The staff are all really friendly, the hotel is clean, there is free wifi that works well.
My only gripe would be that we booked a double room, but were put in a twin. However, if I had actually made a complaint, I sure we would have been moved. It just wasn't a big enough deal for us to make a fuss out of.

Stayed here for 5 nights for 10000 THB with breakfast. We got a room facing the Centara Villas' pool area and the hills, so it was nice and quieter than the other facing which has the street view & the higher floors on 5th & 6th have a partial view of the sea. Liked the convenience to shops, restaurants & amenities at the doorstep. Karon beach which I think is the nicest beach amongst Patong, Kata & Kamala, is just 5 mins walk away. If you are more interested in shopping, you're better off staying in Patong & then going over to Karon beach for the occasional daytrip to the beach since it costs 300 THB one way with tuk tuk. The room was big and roomy with comfortable beds. The bathroom was clean and spacious. There's a balcony to sit out and enjoy the view. If not for the Centara's air conditioner fans and generator located next to the hotel, it would have been perfect. The staff was very helpful and friendly.
