“nice hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

I would recommend this hotel to people travelling to Karon.

Hotel staff are very helpful, location is good as there are many restaurants and shops within walking distance.

Room is spacious and clean.

Breakfast is included as well, spread is not a lot but the food taste good.

The Simplitel is a good value. The rooms are quite large and simple, with nice modern furniture. The king size bed is large and quite nice. The bathroom is small, and my only complaint about the hotel is that the bottom of the shower curtain had mildew on it. The aircon is great and we liked the balcony too. The TV is a nice flat screen, but there are very few English channels. The room has a hair dryer and safe. One day we did not put the "make up room" sign on our door and housekeeping never cleaned our room. We didn't realize we had to put the sign out.
Breakfast is included and it was just ok. It was small, but we enjoyed the fried eggs, bacon (or ham some days), fresh fruit, and yogurt.
The location of the hotel is great, right in the middle of busy Karon - near lots of restaurants and shops. It takes about 5-10 minutes to walk to the beach. There are lots of ATMs and little mini marts nearby for anything you may need, including an ATM and small 24-7 mini mart right next door.
If you don't have to stay right on the beach and you don't mind not having a pool, the Simplitel is a good value, in a good location.

Brand new hotel, nice clean rooms, good aircon and water pressure and nice comfortable (proper) king bed. The location is good, being about 500m to the beach and amongst many of the best restaurants in Karon. There is a mini mart and ATM directly beneath the hotel also. We found the staff to be very friendly (especially Bee - who chatted to us each day we were there and we also found out that he is fluent in English, Russian and Burmese amongst others). The breakfast was fairly simple and unfortunately cold otherwise we would have rated this hotel 5 stars. Overall great value for money, we would definitely stay here again if we go back to Karon.

Room Tip: We stayed on the fourth floor with mountain view which had a great aspect looking over the neighbour...

The breakfast was vert light, you'll Get What you par for, The breakfasthost made our stay, reffering to everyone as "brotet" :). The room was big. We serie vert surprised by the standard of the room compared to the rest of the hotels we staten at.

Checked in at Simpitel after the debacle of CC's Hideaway (they were doing construction works, so checked out after one night of noise and disruption).

So even in peak season there were some rooms available at the Simpitel. The Simpitel is a traditional high rise European style hotel with lift located in the heart of Karon.

The rooms are very comfortable and the staff are pleasant. Surprisingly quiet for its central location. Although we were on the 5th floor.

Highly recommended.

Room Tip: Higher the better as it is in the restaurant area, so can be a bit noisy before Midnight....

Great location, clean rooms, lots of hot water, and working air conditioning! Prices include breakfast, which is great not having to look for breakfast in the morning. We had the city view room, and was surprised that the noise level was minimal. We also had a great view of the Big Buddah from our room. Taxi charges from outside of the hotel to anywhere in Karon is THB 200. Remember to ask around to avoid getting ripped off! Also, go to travel agents and ask to see if they will book for taxi to the airport. The going rate outside is THB 1,200, however, we were able to get THB 800, by going through a travel agent.

Room Tip: Higher floors are less noisy, and choose the city view rooms.

Very good location, friendly staff, clean rooms and affordable price make this hotel probably the best place to stay at Karon. Tours to Similan were cheaper at reception and hotel motorbike was wonderful. We were able to see all nice places on island using it.
We are completely satisfied with our vacations.

Room Tip: Floors number 4 or 5 with Mountain View are just fine
