“Basic and clean”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

The room was central to everything and amenities were all very clean. However, finding might be a challenge as it is still new. Make sure to look out for the Irish pub and it will be diagonally across it (in the lane next to Capu Latte). You may feel a little claustrophobic as there are no windows. All in all, if you are looking for a clean place to crash with air-conditioning, this place is fine. Won't make a difference if you are out the whole day.

On arrival the owner showed us to our room, he was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The room is small but very well looked after, when you just want to go out and explore the island what more do you need?
Location is central and you can walk easily to all areas of the island. The only negative is that there is a noisy Irish bar next door, although me and the other half weren't bothered by the noise there will be a lot of people that will get annoyed by it.
There are some strict rules like no toilet paper down the toilet (10 000 baht) and don't spill liquids on the bed, as long as you look after the room you'll be fine.
They clean the room every other day but give out fresh towels everyday. There is a safe in the room and air conditioning, the bathroom is nice as well.
Would stay here again if we ever returned to Phi Phi.

The orange tree was a bit hard to find, we came off the ferry in the pouring rain walking around the smelly alleys (street) with our luggage, had to ask the locals where it was and when we found it, it was hidden down a small alley. The reception was a small hut outside, the staff were friendly and took us to our room which was further up the alley in a small block of rooms. The room itself was very clean and comfy, looked a bit like a prison cell but that's not a problem for a short stay. Free wifi which was good. The shower was more like a wet room and you had to hold onto the shower hose as the entire bathroom would get wet otherwise! Can't put toilet paper down the toilet, If you do and it breaks there's a 10000 baht fine!

It's really close to an Irish bar so it was very noisy most of the night so not good if you're a light sleeper! Phi phi itself isn't a very nice island and it's really smelly and dirty! But the hotel itself was fine for the 2 days we stayed. Close to the ferry port which was good.

We stayed here for 4 nights in April and the staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful! The main guy also spoke very good English. Located in the heart of the action, yet away from most the noise, the rooms at the Orange Tree were nice, a fair size and we found the beds to be comfortable to help get a good nights sleep. The rooms could do with being a little bit lighter as there are only 2-3 very small windows in the bathroom which is shut out by the bathroom door (but this probably helped us get a nice lie in to be fair!). You also had to make your own bed daily but this wasn't a problem. Facilities were ample and would certainly stay here again if we were back on Koh Phi Phi.

Room Tip: If they're out of double bed rooms, you can request that they put 2 beds together in a twin room...

Very clean and safe place. The host couple did everyhting they could to help us with absolutely everything. Clean towels everyday pls 2 bottles water complimentary. Good TV channels and a fridge. Room 3 is the best room, designwise.

it is placed in the mid of Tonsai Village so you can hear the biggest club from the room. So make sure to stay out until 2, when everythign quiets down.
I highly recommend this place.

Room Tip: Room nr 3 is the best one, when it comes to design of bathroom.

- it is in the middle of the action,walking distance from the pier, close to the beach but if you can choose go to another beach, they have parties during the night on that beach so imagine what is in the water
-the owners are working at this guest house, very nice people, they can help you with anything, trip to the other island, it was even cheaper than booking at the pier, washing your staff, any advice i am sure that they will help you
- it is small and basic, they have i think 5 rooms.the rooms are clean, with tv, internet, ac, in room safe, hot water but small and with no window.
- l checked for hours for a hotel/ guest house and this was the best i could find for the price
-the french restaurant in front of the guest house it was my favorite from the entire trip of 18, days(good breakfast, lunch and dinner)

Extremely disappointing. The owners (husband and wife) seemed very nice when we arrived and were quite helpful with the laundry service and that. The room however was very small, no windows except for a small one in the bathroom, so with that door closed there was no light in the room. Lots of ants. Airconditioning was fine. Noise from the bars outside was very loud and went on throughout the night. My friend had put some jewellery in the safe on our first day there which we kept locked throughout our stay. On the morning we were leaving the items were gone. We both searched the safe and the room thoroughly but could not find them. When we were checking out we mentioned it to the owners who said they found nothing and had no idea about it. We were about half way to the pier when he came up behind us on a bicycle with the items in his hand and said he had found them in the safe under the mat. Not true. We had both checked the safe thoroughly - including under the mat. We were very glad to have the items back but if we had not mentioned it I am sure my friend would not have seen them again. In conclusion, the room conditions were sub-par and the owners are deceitful. Don't stay here.
