“Overpriced for the standard of room... But good location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2012

Didnt seem to have anything to do with diving, as there was not encouragement or information for diving.
The rooms were spacious, but the bed was uncomfortable and the shower didn't always have hot water. We also had trouble with the locks on our window and shared balcony,
The staff were friendly and the location was great, close to shops, restaurants and bars. Also only a 10 minute walk to Karon beach. Just think it was a bit overpriced compared to other Thai guesthouses.

Room Tip: Check windows and doors lock.

I choose it because the owner answered the booking request quickly and friendly. Transfer from and to the airport was organized by the hotel, all smooth. Owners are Swedish and very friendly in receiving guests, rooms clean and corresponding to tariff, breakfast is all right. Only unpleasant note the behavior of the Thai women who seems a manager or local co-owner, unfriendly every day and at any hour of the day without reason, a pity, as otherwise the place is all right.

Room Tip: higher floor for view

A great hotel with very friendly staff. I was made to feel very welcome by the staff and was upgraded to a better room class (this was off-season). After my stay, the receptionist kindly let me look at the top-end rooms in the hotel (to satisfy my curiosity) - whilst I was very happy with my room, the view from the top would have been great.

I initially booked for just one night, as I wasn't sure what my plans were, but the staff were happy to keep an eye on my bags, and I ended up staying for a few more days.

The hotel is very well located in Karon - less that 5 minutes walk to the beach, good access to supermarkets and ATMs. Please do not feel this is a "divers only" kind of place - whilst it does cater for divers, it is also very suitable for anyone looking for a high-quality hotel room on a budget.

Spent our holiday diving with Phuket Scuba Club. Just a few minutes walk from the hotel. Good beds, nice room with fridge,safe and everything needed. Free Internet( no hidden costs), and very friendly staff! We stayed at the top floor, so it was a bit tough to carry all the luggage 5 floors, and to walk the stairs after a day with much diving....
Kept us in good shape I guess!

We stayed here for a week at the start of December. We booked one of the seaview rooms on the top floor which was 5 floors up. There wasnt a lift but then again you wouldnt expect there to be one as its only classed as a guesthouse.

On the first night our sleep was disrupted a lot due to a noisy person in the room opposite us and the hallway is very narrow so the sound just seemed to travel right up to the top floor! It was quite the rest of the time that we were there though and we slept really well.

Our room was big and the TV had a vast amount of channels which was a surprise. We also had free Wi-Fi in our room and the shower was always hot. The only downside's were that the water was a bit cloudy and the toilet door was just clear glass. That didnt really bother us but its not something that everyone would be comfortable with!

To our surprise the rest of our stay was brilliant. It was quite and the staff were so helpful. They were able to book tours for us and they spoke good English. The breakfast was basic but it was just what we needed in the morning - toast, fruit and a cup of tea!

We backpacked around Thailand and this is by far the best place that we stayed purely because of the staff. The accomdation is fine if your on a budget and the location is ideal as its 2 minutes away from the beach. We would stay here again.
