“Great room 3 min walk to the beach-even better prices!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

we couldnt believe how cute, clean and sleek the place was. We payed $30 usd for our room, comfy bed( the comfiest we have had in all of thailand), good wireless, close to the beach, bars, restaurants etc. Great little place, and def would stay again. ONLY complaint was that we had a confirmed email that they would pick us up from the airport as we were flying in from Chaing mai...we waited..waited...my bf after 40 mins, got us a taxi, and were driven in at the same exact amount they quoted us. Once we were checking in, the lady, although very nice and sweet, had no idea that we had a pick up scheduled and was kind of oblivious...it was strange. Again,my bf and i have been travelling extensively for the last few months, so we had a bit if a brian fart and didnt realize that we had already payed for this hotel- apparently the front desk doesnt keep their records and receipts handy. she asked us to pay, we did. once we are in our room, he randomly goes into the folder we keep our agoda receipts and find out that we have indeed already payed!! we go down there, and it took her about 20-25 mins to return our money, as she seemed really confused. Anyways!! gReat place. just make sure you know whether you owe them, and dont order a pickup, just order a taxi service once you get there, its the same price!!

we moved to here from a dirty place on the beach and even though were on budget we couldnt believe how nice it was for the price,we stayed on the ground floor of the residence and its was perfect,double bed and the showers are great,nice and powerful and warm.

the place couldnt get any cleaner,they are constantly cleaning which is a good thing.

i would recommend this to anyone

thanks to the staff for the hospitality

We stayed here for 2 nights - not being very organised we hadn't booked anywhere to stay but just rocked up based on the reviews. The staff were only too happy to help and show us around 2 different types of room so we could choose which one we prefered. We went for the balcony room which just allowed us that little bit more space.

The rooms / hotel all seem really new so everywhere was spotless clean and comfy / modern. We couldn't fault anything. There are a lovely few restaurants just opposite the the hotel (specifically the family run place just to the left) so you don't need to walk down to the nosier end of Lami beach for some food. Highly recommend.

We have just returned from Thailand and stayed here on 2 seperate occasions.
The hotel is located on the main road, although noise isnt a problem.The staff are really friendly and try and do everything to make sure your stay is comfortable. It has 2 types of rooms,one with a balcony, and the other which looks inward to the staircase.This type is a little cheaper but has the drawback that you have to keep the curtains closed to stop people looking in. Both types of room are finished to a very good standard and immcaulately clean, my only complain was that some of the bed sheets had stains on them.
Beach towels are supplied daily which I thought was a really nice touch.
The beach is a 1 min walk away, and excellent food is available from the food market which is about a 5min walk when turning left out of the front of the hotel. If you are there over the weekend, then pay the weekly market a visit,so many different types of food available as well as gifts etc.We had crocodile as well as "fried ice cream" made using a cold plate at -30oC which was delicious!! The local school children produce customised keyrings from bottle tops which are great!
Id definately stay here again when visiting Lamai.

Room Tip: Balcony type to avoid everyone looking in

We stayed here for 5 nights and cannot fault the hotel. It is clean, homely and has everything you want from a hotel / guesthouse at a very reasonable price. The rooms are nice and they are clean daily, they have a fridge with mini bar, TV, double bed, vanity desk and mirror, big ensuite and a very very good shower. The dipping pool in the centre of the ground floor looks amazing and is worth a dip at the end of a long hot day to cool you right down. Staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel is a minute walk to the beach, out back of the hotel. It is located on the main beach road in Lamai with restaurants, markets, shops, gym, travel agents, moped hire just a few minutes away in either direction. We would definitely stay here again if we came back to Samui and we would highly recommend a stay here on your travels.

Room Tip: We stayed on the bottom floor, it's the cheapest room because it has no balcony, we thought it m...

This hotel is clean and definitely reasonably priced. I paid about i think 27-31 dollars a night if i remember correctly. The location is 1 minute walk away from the beach and maybe about 5 minutes away from Lamai market by family mart and about a 5 minute walk to the area with all the bars and walking street. The room is kept immaculately clean as are the linens on the bed. You are provided with toiletries and drinking water everyday. The room is stocked with a mini bar, tv and a AC that works really well. This place is excellent value for the money and I would definitely stay here again if i come back to Koh Samui. The staff here are friendly and willing to help with booking ferries etc. There are several reasonably priced restaurants a short walk away but everything on the island costs a little more than in bangkok. I had no problems at all at this hotel and would definitely recommend it for a clean comfortable place to stay.

Lovely 3 story building with rooms facing interior with a great "dipping" pool. Lots of plants, beautiful wood trims, just a wonderful feeling place. Rooms are great, new, good size, all amentities, good wifi and FREE computer usage. One block off the Lamai beach but very easy 1 minute walk. We would return in an heartbeat!
