We stayed here for five nights during to learn to scuba dive on the island. The location was great as it was 5 minute walk to the beach, however it could be noisy for pub crawls twice a week (not great for early morning dives) and on reflection we would have preferred more space than a bedroom. It was great for the many brilliant restaurants and bars, and a shop at the end of the street. The breakfasts (and burgers) were AMAZING, a good range and lovely staff going above and beyond working long hours. They dropped us back to the pier when we were leaving the island which was a nice touch.

Stayed here for two months and it was wonderful.
Fantastic location 3 minute walk to Sairee Beach, and multiple delicious restaurants. Multiple bars adjacent and across the street. There is some noise from music and bikes if you're sleeping facing the busier street, but if you're used to sleeping with some noise it's not bad, and the window shades hide any light.
The staff were all super friendly, happy to talk, and helpful with suggestions about things to do and general navigation around the island. Also they were very helpful with any problems with the room (which were few, but promptly dealt with).
The room was clean (and cleaned daily--which was great for someone who was tracking sand in from the beach!), had AC(which would cool quickly once the keycard was put in place), comfortable bed, and a had a wonderful pressurized hot shower.
All and all, great simple accommodation that convinced me to stay there my entire trip to the island.

Thalassa Hotel is brilliantly situated on Sairee Beach. Very short walk to the beach. Near the bars and nightlife. Very comfy beds and spotless room. Would highly recommend. The cost for one night was £27 Sterling, absolute bargain. Will definitely be returning. We arrived early for our room and the staff rearranged their workload so we could check-in earlier.

We checked in here yesterday and everything seemed ok. We even got picked up from the pier although the communication about the pick up was not great in that they did not confirm and I had to call them.

For almost 24 hours there have been no staff at the hotel. There was a board with a telephone number on it at reception but whenever I called it I just got through to a answer machine service.

To make matters worse there has been a power cut on the island but this was fixed some hours ago but because there have been no staff at the hotel it could not be turned back on/reset.

What seems really strange is that everything is unlocked and all electrical items such as computers are at the open air reception area are there to be stollen. Even the room where all the circuit breakers are is open but the staff have disappeared.

We put our sign outside the door on “make up room” but somebody and I suspect the cleaners have changed this to “do not disturb” so the room has not been made up and we did not get our towels changed.

Our room included breakfast but all you get is a voucher for a cafe on the other side of the street but unfortunately the only drink that you can have with the voucher is an Americana coffee. I wanted a fruit juice but that was not allowed so we just left and paid for breakfast in another restaurant.

This hotel is cheap, clean and in a good location but the service is extremely poor and there are not staff available to help with anything. It just feels like the hotel has been abandoned. I do not recommend it.

Perfect location for bars, restaurants, beach access and tours!

Best hotel breakfast I’ve had in Asia. Choice of full English, healthy or continental with tea or coffee.

The room was reasonably sized with a huge comfortable bed. TV with English channels was a bonus. Hotel is modern and clean.

I stayed 8 nights at Thalassa whilst completing 2 dive courses at Roctopus.

The location of this place is amazing and took me 2 minutes to walk to dive school every morning. It's also right on the main strip of Sairee so if you are wanting a drink/restaurant there are plenty around.

Rooms are spacious, clean and bright with a nice walk in shower. Beds are very comfy and rooms come with air conditioning. I had a room at the back of the building and the noise levels were negligible.

Breakfast is included and very good, you have the option of choosing between 3 set breakfasts : Healthy (Muesli, Yogurt and Fruit) English (Bacon, Eggs, Beans and Toast) or Continental (Croissants, Toast). All come with a good coffee and juice.

I'd recommend Thalassa, especially if you plan on diving at any of the Sairee based joints.

We stayed at Thalassa for 5 nights and it was great!

Very clean rooms, great location, friendly staff and tasty breakfast!!

Would definitely stay again if ever on Koh Tao! The free pick up from the pier was a nice gesture.

Visited here with my husband. Rooms are relatively clean and spacious. The decor is modern. The only issue for me was the noise - it resembles a sort of party halls of residents and is situated on a noisy street. I appreciate that I would have liked this place a lot were I travelling with friends and wanting to get drunk every night (it felt safe too at night).

Something I would like to comment on....I would be careful what you order to eat from the diner; I would stick to fried food only and avoid the salads.

Dear Guest, We're sorry to hear your stay was compromised by the noise from the street. I wish you would have addressed this with us as we could have moved you to the other side (which is not facing the street) depending on the availabilities. We also offer free earplugs at the front desk which could have helped. We hope your stay in Koh Tao was otherwise enjoyable and we hope to see you back some day. Best regards, The Management

Yes - for a surcharge, just message them. It is also very easy to just get a cab by the pier - price should be around 200 baht.

If you made a booking pass from the agency, isn't direct the hotel. I recomend you read a condition first before you contact to ask refund.
