“Clean, good value and location for Phi Phi”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2012

After doing a air bit of research on accomodation for Phi Phi, the logical choice was one of the guesthouses. They are well kept, clean and cheap with good amenities. Ivory was just that with the market for decent cheap food opposite, good sized tv, good air con and nice bathroom. Front desk staff were very friendly and helpful and are able to oganise tours and laundry. Phi Phi is for partying and sightseeing. You dont need a fancy hotel, and they are overpriced for what you can get in Phuket or Lanta or somewhere else.

DO NOT miss out on visiting the viewpoint! Postcard views. Bamboo Island and Maya Bay (The Beach) are must visits as well and are included on the Phi Phi all day tour. Slinkys was the best of the beach clubs while I was there. Get a bucket from the guy in the street. Cheaper and real vodka, then just walk in from the beach ;) enjoy!

Room Tip: Request a balcony!

This was a good clean hotel in the middle of Phi Phi Island. The staff are very friendly and helpful with any issues. As a solo traveller this wasn't the best place for me to stay as it made meeting people very difficult but this does not reflect on the quality of the hotel which would be perfect for couples.

Ivory is a clean and good quality mid-range accomodation in Phi Phi - believe it or not it is hard to find a clean place.

Ivory had a really good location (centrally located, not too close to the noisy beach but close enough to walk anywhere).

The room is simple and good. Most importantly to me it was very clean. It is in front of the local market so can smell a bit fishy outside but thankfully that doesn't carry onto the room. The airconditioner worked really well, the shower had good pressure and hot water.

If you are looking for a place to lounge around this isn't it, but if you want a reliable, clean place that is well located at a good price then Ivory is an excellent choice.

This is not a resort. Lets make that clear first.

But its a perfect place for those who are looking for a room in dead centre of phi phi main village. Easy 4 min walk to the beaches on either side. Plenty restaurants around.

The place is perfect because it is clean, new, neat, tidy, proper functioning toilets. So if you only want a place to sleep this is perfect. But if you are want to spend time in your hotel, then you should find something else.

The staff were very polite and helpful too.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

We just checked out of the Ivory, it's by far the most uncomfortable place I've stayed at in Thailand. It's a modern 'hostel' (not hotel) located smack bang in the middle if the action - great if you're part of the gap year crowd and you need a place to rest your head after a hard night of partying. It's safe to say that staying at Ivory dented my experience of Phi Phi. The bed was as hard as concrete, there was a flimsy sheet to sleep with and you could hear the 'party bangers' techno music playing from all walls. I gave up after night 1 (we booked for 3) and lost my money but I can confirm I've kept my sanity. Extra point - this hotel advertises a restaurant but it's used as a living room/playroom for their kids. There is a metal gate around it! If you're in your late twenties or above this place isn't for you - go to Koh Phi Phi for the day!

Room Tip: Don't pick the room near reception!

Stayed here for a few days in the beginning of September. This hotel is in the center of town just seconds from restaurants, massage parlours, bars, and the beach on both sides. I had a room on the second floor with a large sliding glass window (no view), but I think this kept the noise down as well. The rooms are small, but very well kept. They clean them daily and replace your towels and soaps. The couple that runs this place are extremely friendly and helpful.

I would highly recommend this place for travelers who are on a budget.

Room Tip: Second floor, away from the street

The Good:
Clean room and right in alongside all the food and shopping
Only a 5 minute walk from the Pier
Air conditioning works well
Very friendly owner and staff

The Not So Good:
Expensive for what you get.......but all Phi Phi Island hotels are WAY OVERPRICED
Very small room
Hard bed mattress (pretty much the norm in Thailand)
Very noisy.....can hear everything from the other rooms
