“Would stay again”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Staying at karon cafe inn at the moment after a horrendous flight was collected promptly by hotel driver to arrive at karon cafe to find everything locked up and in darkness waited about 20 minutes someone arrived eventually (I had tried using the telephone but could not get an answer).the room was to say the least not good in the morning spoke to the brilliant thay who moved us to a better room . have been here for 11 days and after a rocky start it is good accomodation would stay again only a couple of minor criticisms if thay is not working breakfast can be a bit hit or miss due to lack of English also had to ask for hand towels ,could do with second coffee boiler at breakfast because you have to wait for the only one to be refilled and heat up also ladies no hair dryer in rooms we asked thay and she got us one from spa club. Overall would definitely stay again

Room Tip: Don't worry about comments re noise from calypso bar never bothered us

Hi Nick

Thanks for taking the time to post a review. I am pleased to read that the team dealt promptly with your issues and despite the 'rocky start' that you enjoyed your stay, and would return.

Excellent restaurant in a great location! One of the best steaks me and my family tasted whilst in phuket! Would definately recommend this hotel! Plenty of choice for children too! A little gem of a place. The beef and vegetable soup tasted lovely too.

I visited friends in Karon and once again stayed at Karon Cafe Inn, I find it really good basic room but most are in Phuket unless you spend lots of money. The food is really good. From steaks to local cuisine. Would not hesitate to stay again and recommend for anyone who doe snot want to pay over the odds for a bed.

Room Tip: No swimming pool or fitness centre but you can use the sister hotel.

We stayed in karon caffee in month of Feb 2013, location is just 2 min walk from beautiful karon beach , rooms are specious , the lane in which hotel is located itself is happening, we rented bike from a store in the opposite lane of the hotel and the girl directed us so well.
We didn't tried food in the hotel hence can't comment, overall nice experience.

this will reqlly be about three different hotels, all owned by the same person. eric owns the pacific club resort, the paradise inn and the karon cafe inn. i started out at the paradise inn because it has a mexican restaurant that i love but it was a little too close to the nighlife so i called miss gaye(the first of many times) and she allowed me to mive to the karon cafe inn. it was wonderful, big bed and nice and quiet. miss gaye also helped me do a visa run to burma and helped me arrange all my taxis to the airport. whatever i asked her she was always 110% helpful to me. i really cannot praise her enough, she was great. if not for her, i would have left thailand early but instead i stayed 6 weeks. the pacific club is a bit more high class but i ate there and also used the pool quite a bit. the food was great at all three places. i also ate at the street staqlls a lot becausei love the thai food they make and it is cheap. staff were for the most part helpful but some do not communicate well in english. i loved karon beach and mostly i appreciate all the help and support miss gaye gave me. if you go to any of the three properties and have any problems just contact miss gaye at the pacific club, she is a reall life saver and problem saver. i hope to return to the karon cafe again soo...

Room Tip: if you don't stay up late i recommend the karon cafe, its a little more quiet.

i used this hotel for many years ,its one off the best known small hotels in karon,good clean rooms , big queen size beds ,sat tv -air-con and has its own restaurant,karon cafe also has 1 or 2 family rooms so you can have the kids near or not. you can get euro or thai food here and they do 1 off the best steaks in karon .they also do a buffet style breakfast and you can choose how you want your eggs done,also try their smoked ribs ,they are really good.!!.karon cafe is right in the heart off the action ,all the bars and other restaurants are right on the doorstep.only down side is that in the high season the hotel opposite has live music and it goes on till around 1am so book a back room if you want go bed early .the staff are great in this hotel and have often ironed my creased shirts for me .they have their own in house laundry too.

Room Tip: choose a back room if you want avoid the live music in the high season,or you could have a grandstan...

To start off with my first time to Phuket, I went without booking the hotel maybe i was lucky and got a room, Karon Cafe is in the right spot with almost everything eg: Shopping, restaurants, Tour, Bars. I was well pleased with the room and the room service and good food too. However we didnt eat much @ the hotel cuz we wanted to try out varieties outside. Also we took a Tour from a Lady called "BEN" very close to the hotel on the same road as she was very helpful and a good bargain. Do try her tour and do give my regards if u do so.
