“Nice hotel in the best location”
Reviewed March 6, 2014

We weren't sure about the hotel at first being tucked away at the end of a little lane but this ended up being good because of the quiet, while only being the shortest walk to the stunning Karon beach. The room itself was lovely and as I had read on here I had requested a hill facing room which was nice. The beds were comfy except our sleep was significantly disturbed by continual loud noise I don't know of this was our air on or something on the roof but would have been very annoying if staying for more than a couple of nights. The breakfast was average with not many options, and there was a few friendly staff members but a few that liked to talk to each other or play Candy Crush instead of greeting guests. Overall a good hotel in a good location with a few negatives.

Room Tip: Choose a even numbered hill facing rooms fora good view.

First impression very modern and chic. Walked into our Deluxe room and wow fabulous. On closer inspection however. No storage space. so bags were left on the floor for the week. There were marks on the bed so housekeeping had to immediately come and change it. (however this was done extremely quickly). Food was good and reception was very helpful. They asked us to pay our bill when we arrived not when we left which I didn't really like. Good rooftop terrace with a nice breeze so enjoyable. Beach just across the road. All in all althought we had a couple of little problems when we got there is wasn't a bad hotel and was good value. But don't think I would return.

Nothing special to report from this hotel. Rooms are small and nothing special but clean. Everythings seems to be sterile and uncosy. The rooftop bar is nice but again uncosy so everyone leaves after one beer. Tey to catch a sunset there, it's really nice!

Did not meet our expectations. Room was very small. Stains on the curtains. Shower did not work well. Glass top on the balcony table was missing. Overlooks onto a weedy field, trash, rusty barbed wire fence when walking on the main road very near the hotel.With a little extra effort could be a better place.... beach across the road is very nice. Won't return.

When we arrived at this hotel the power was out and we had to carry bags up 5 flights of stairs in the heat (so it wasn't a great start). The hotel room was nice - stayed in a two bedroom room which had a little lounge room. The only downside was the bathroom was an en suite to one of the bedrooms and made it a bit awkward for the other couple to use. The other issue with the room was the bathroom sink start leaking all over the bathroom floor and onto to electrics - it looks as if it was a case of hurried renovations gone wrong. The pool on the roof was nice - but the issue being on the first day the pool bar had no drinks in it! To our relief it was serving drinks the next day. Service at the hotel was ok but not great. The only real upsides to the hotel are it is pretty close to the beach (just across the road) and the air conditioning definitely works. Also beds were quite comfy.

Greeting was with cocktail & wet towel. Staff was really helpful. I asked to bring a table and chair, and they did it next day. Rooms are not spacious, and look empty, it's better to order grand deluxe room (1bedroom&1living room). Very nice pool is on the roof, after sunset staff switch on lightning, it seems stars shine on the bottom.
