I chose this hotel base on the (good) review i found in internet and i must say that all was as expected: big and clean room with balcony, good breakfast, good location in karon beach even if as far as 10 min walk from the beach. Just outside the hotel there's many good restaurants, massage shops, bars and everything you...

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, I decided to book the Simplitel. I was more than pleased with my choice! The staff are very friendly & yes don't understand English that well but its fun trying to communicate your needs - I'd much rather have locals at the front desk than perfect english speaking staff - takes away the whole...

Clean rooms and spacious beds - they squeeze two super singles into one. Short walk down to the beach and near many restaurants in Karon. Family Seafood restaurant a short walk up the hill does great delicious seafood, Breakfast is a good spread for the price. We requested for late check out at 2pm and although they usually charge extra...

Stayed here for two nights. Karon in general is very calm and not much to do at night. The hotel is a 2 minute walk from the beach and there are bars and restaurants on the same street (only 2 or 3 bars were open past 10pm though...and no food places). The rooms are huge and the staff is great....

Very nice rooms, clean and spacious, with a HUGE double bed! Location is very good, walking distance from Karon beach, tuk Tuks to Kata beach (surfing) were 200baht, but we walked most days - probably about a 45min walk. Breakfast was very good, not exactly continental or English, but good none the less. Cannot be beaten for price as we...

Great budget hotel. Pros: Clean room and bathroom with all the necessities. Staff are nice and friendly. Cons: Breakfast could be better (I guess its good enough for the price) Bathroom doors need locks. No bathroom has locks in the hotel. Tips: Rent a motorbike to go around. Anyone (adult) who can ride a bicycle should be able to ride...

My wife and I arrived in Phuket earlier than expected. The hotel we already booked could not take us early so we found Simplitel through Trip Advisor. All the positive reviews are well deserved. The location is fantastic, only about a 5 minute walk to the beach. The room was very nice, the hotel is clean, and the staff is...
