“Clean rooms but very noisy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

The room and shared bathroom were all spotless with towels provided. The fan was powerful enough for just the two of us and our window overlooked the sea. The only downside is that it is extremely loud from the bars at night time but apart from that it was great value for money,

Had a 3 night stay at Tara Inn this month whilst travelling on a budget around Thailand.

I was worried I wasn't going to find a cheap & clean room on the island of Phi Phi - but stumbled across this 'hotel' on Trip Advisor.

The owner is very friendly and will go out of her way to help you with anything you need. The rooms are clean and basic and located just a 60 second walk away from the beach.

Clean affordable rooms at a great location. I would stay here again.

Not the best spot we could have picked for a good nights sleep but the place is a steal at 350 B for a double fan only. A nice central location, decent sized rooms, clean, nice shared bathroom and friendly staff.

6 of us stayed in 3 rooms here for 4 Nights when we were in Phi Phi, All the rooms were simple but accommodated our needs perfectly, This is right in the heart of the lively Nightlife area of the Island and a short 2 minute walk will have you at Slinkys Bar (Not to be missed). Fantastic Mexican Restaurant right beside Hotel also and Banana Rooftop bar is a must for a game of beer pong or just to relax!

Keeping it brief:
- Owner can be hot and cold so the rude aspect is overbearing
- Great central location however if you plan on a night in, the rooftop bar will keep you awake until 3am
- No WiFi in the room which would be standard for the prices
- Room was nice, no complaints with the A/C room
- Price doesn't equate to the quality you can get elsewhere on Ko Phi Phi which is a tiny island so a 5 minute walk is worth it
- All in all, they don't value a guest as another visitor will come back immediately after

Room Tip: If you plan on staying in any night you stay, doon't stay here, the rooftop bar goes on all nigh...

Well, what can we said more ? What you paid is what you get. Rooms on Phi Phi islands is very expensive. So, 700baht is alright, but you have to bear the pub noisy sounds at night. You also need to sleep on rock-hard like bed.

However, location is nice, near to pier and beach.

Stayed here for one night after leaving another hotel after a horrific time there. We were looking for a basic, clean and sealed room for no more than £10. And that is what we got with Tara inn. Quite warm at night but a/c rooms are double. Great location right in the centre, near the bars and near the beach. There is a roof top bar opposite the hotel that show movies every night at 7pm the place gets very busy so get there 30 mind before I u want a seat.
