The room is big and very clean. The balcony is nice to sit on. Downside is there is no one working at the reception so it's very hard and frustrating when you need something...(towels, toilet paper) anything. When it was time to check out couldn't find the worker anywhere to get my $500baht deposit back.
Would recommend this hotel only if you do not expect a lot. The rooms were clean , however the bathroom could have been better equipped with soaps etc. The geyser wasn't working. The staff was polite, language however was big barrier. There are a lot of start dogs right in front of the hotel , so if one is planning to get back late in the night, one needs to ensure that you dont run over the dogs or get bitten. It wasn't worth the price i paid for it at all, however due to year end madness can't complaint too much on the price point. The Free WiFi wasn't working and there was no arrangement for room service.
There is a big difference between the room itself and the bathroom. Obviously the room has gone serious renovation not long ago, while that bathroom has not. The room is great. it's big and new. the colors are bright. There is a big double bed, TV (only Thai channels), refrigerator, small balcony, air-conditioner and a dressing table. There is no door. only a big window which functions as the main door, and opens to the outside, which is nice because it makes the room feel not stuffy (there is a curtain for privacy). Like I said, the best feature is how new and in good condition the room feels. The bathroom, however, is old and feels this way. it's quite small, the colors are dark. The shower itself had a decent temperature but the shower head is old and the water flow stream is thin and so doesn't feel nice on the skin. besides the water go in different directions because the shower head holes are partially blocked. the toilet moved every time I sat on it, and the faucet did too (every time I turned it on). but overall everything worked fine. The curtain in the room is not dark, which means a lot of light in the morning, and there is no dresser or closet for the clothes. The freezer (inside the refrigerator) had no door, so the refrigerator was always too cold, and there is no room cleaning. In spite of all these shortcomings, I enjoyed my stay there, just because, like I said, the room just feels very nice, and I think is a good bargain for it's price (I got it for 3,000 baht for 5 nights in September), so I do recommend it.…
Stayed here for 2 nights over a weekend and was very disappointed. I am not a princess by any means but this place was gross. Upon inspection after checking in, noticed the sheets had mysterious blotches and small sandy clumps, and the comforter did not have any sort of sheet cover. The bathroom was also really dirty and the walls covered in clumps of dust and mildew, and the water did not drain properly from the shower, leading to more gross floating mildew. I found a cockroach and other mysterious creepy crawlies in the room on both nights. My friend also found a cockroach in her (separate) room, and her toilet was not working properly. Our rooms were not cleaned during our stay and we needed to ask for toilet paper to be replaced. The receptionists did not speak any English. I'm sure there are better places to stay on the island within a similar price range (roughly 1,000 baht/night per room). The only reason I am giving the place 2 stars instead of 1 is that I managed to somehow still sleep fairly well, the AC worked fine and the room managed to stay mosquito-free.…
We stayed here three nights and our overall opinion was mediocre. The front desk girl was icy at best, very little help and could really have cared less if you were happy or not with the accommodation. The room itself was nice, with a modern look. The bathroom was pretty gross and not well cleaned. The water that came out of the facet and shower was a light brown with a slight odor all the time. The beds were comfortable and the AC worked. Our room was not cleaned or touched up once during our stay, which was fine, but given what we payed, unexpected. Quiet for the most part, aside from a stray cat and fighting couple. The location was good - 5 min walk from the pier in Samet Town, 7-10 min walk to the beach and right in the middle of all the restaurants and tour vendors. It wasn't the worst in the world, but I wouldn't recommend it either.…
