“Absolutely Terrible”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

I had one stay at this hotel and came back to give them another chance... the rooms were reasonable but the service and staff terrible... The woman on the reception was arrogant and ignorant... On the second occasion I booked a superior room and there were 3 rooms available when I booked ... she was a problem the first time being insulting to one of my Thai partners as well.. however on my second arrival she simply said bad luck contact Agoda who i booked through... she said I could have the room next to reception...staff coming and going and people past the door all hours. Apart from that the hotel is not positioned where Agoda advised it was on the map...Agoda did try to fix this a little with a small discount...

Room Tip: Find somewhere else...anywhere!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2012

We took a taxi from phuket airport to this hotel (costs 500 baht). We stayed for 3 nights (Mar 31, Apr.1 &2 2012) It costs us 650 baht per night , excluding breakfast. The hotel is small. There are other small hotels beside it. Our room had 2 twin beds. It was spacious, clean, sliding door with a balcony. Wifi was good. It is quiet at night .The staff were all helpful and amicable. We had lunch once at their restaurant, the food was okay but service was quite slow. It is a 2 minute walk to Simon Cabaret. There is also a Catholic church near Simon (about a hundred yards). There are a lot of convenience stores,cafes and restaurants around the area. The nearest beach is a 20 minute walk. Bangla road and jungceylon are about 20 to 25 minute walk. We always walked because the tuk tuks are quite expensive. There are also a lot of travel agencies around the area. They provide trips to phi-phi, bond island, tickets to shows. It costs us 900 baht per person for a day trip to phi-phi island (includes hotel pick up, transfers and lunch). You could ask for discounts. If you are a dog lover like us you will like this area. The hotel across it has 2 siberian huskies. The hotel beside it has 2 shih tzus.

Arrived here and scored 2 nights for only $26. The room was a great size and with balcony and air con. The bathroom Was all one area so you kinda shower right next to the loo but... For the price, I wasn't complaining. It is out of the hustle and bussle but probably only by 3 or 4 km.
I was a happy customer :)
