My girlfriend and I stayed at Simplitel in August of 2014. The first morning of our stay, we left our room to go down to the breakfast eating area for about half an hour. During that time, someone in the cleaning staff entered our room to do some daily maintenance activities. When we returned, my girlfriend found that there was 1000 baht missing from her purse. We are 100% sure that it was stolen because we arrived at 3am the night before, and we had exchanged currencies at the airport with no opportunity to spend the money due to the late hour. (We had organized a car service to drive us to the hotel from the airport, but that was paid for in advance, so we didn't give the missing 1000 baht to a taxi driver and forget about it.)

We thought about reporting the incident to the police or at least to hotel management, but decided not to because we had no proof and we didn't want to open ourselves up to possible - though improbable - endangerment.

A word to the wise -- keep all your valuables inside the safe in the rooms. I'm sure these kinds of small thefts happen all the time, especially in a country where most people are below the poverty line, but I guess this was just our punishment for being overly-trusting and naive.

As for the hotel, the breakfast was acceptable, though not exceptional. There is a gym with limited equipment, so that was nice! Location was very close to Karon beach.

Would we stay here again? Possibly, since the hotel really can't be blamed for our loss, but probably not because there are too many other interesting places to stay around the area.

Room Tip: Make sure you lock up your valuables. Never leave your passport/money unattended.

1st time in Thailand and it was great to experience a clean , friendly, welcoming , hotel ....only downside was their food selection at breakfast was limited but everything else was great. The hotel is close to the beach and you are able to organize every activity there is to do just at the jain reception which takes alot of the hassle out of everything.

Very clean hotel with a very nice staff. The hotel is surrounded by shops and convenience stores and is also a short walking distance from the beach. After it rained, a few of the cable channels went out. When I mentioned it to the staff, the maintenance man immediately went on the roof, did something, and most of them returned. As a solo traveler I felt very comfortable at this Hotel. For the price it is a great hotel!

Room Tip: I recommend the mountain view rooms.

When I stayed here, the hotel was already two years old, but it still felt brand new! It was perfectly clean in every way, the furniture looked and felt brand new and the staff were extremely welcoming and always willing to help. In front of the hotel is a 7/11 and a few atms as well as a tuk tuk stand and there are a few places around where you can hire scooters. It takes about 5 minutes to walk to the beach and there's plenty to do and see around the hotel.

Karon is less busy as compared to patong . And simplitel is situated at the best location. Next to a convenience store. Restaurants few doors away. Pubs at a minute's walk. What else do you need. Oh tue and sat there's night market down the road. Come out frm the hotel and go left. Staffs are friendly. We wanted to rent a bike but the hotel ran out. Went to the rental shod nearby bu they want to hold on to our passports. No having any of that. So I pressed on with the reception to see if anything can be done to get us a bike. An hour later a bike was ready for us. We'll done. Maximum points for effort n results. Overall satisfied with room with mountain view on 6th floor. I recommend to everyone if staying in Karon. Don't forget Ying Restaurant fews doors to the left.

We had booked this hotel online because of the great reviews and we were not disappointed. Check in and out was seamless. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They helped us book our ferry to Phi Phi Island, minibus transfer included. The hotel was clean and in a nice position, right next to a 7-11 which we frequented for bottled water, beer and snacks! We caught taxi's to see Big Buddha, Chalong Temple and Kata Beach (all very nice stops). Patong was also just a 10min taxi drive away.

Our room was large, clean and had a huge, comfy bed. Bathroom was great and the only one we stayed in that actually had a shower curtain (many other places in our budget had the more open plan toilet-shower setup).

This is a great place to start a trip in Thailand after a long flight... get some good sleep to get over any jet lag, while still being close enough to the sights (but far enough from crazy, noisy Patong). All for a really excellent price. Thanks to all at Simplitel Hotel!!
