“Good Hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

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 but for us they waived it. (Might be because we booked 3 rooms together)

The price is reasonable and we would consider staying here again if we return to Karon.

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. Hotel is very very environmentally friendly :)) Breakfast is delicious. No pool. For the general prices of Karon and Phuket/ Thailand in general, I thought it was too expensive. But overall, very good stay! :D

Room Tip: Our room was facing the mountain view- SO SO beautiful and refreshing! Very peaceful

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 paid £21 p/n for a room that felt very luxurious.

Would have loved a swimming pool, however not really necessary as the beach is so close. Bee was a very helpful and friendly member of staff, many thanks to him.

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 it. Its lots of fun. Rent is 200 baht/day. Ride to phuket beach is about 15 - 25 mins. If not bike you can take a taxi to the patong beach. Best price we (7 ppl) got from hotel to patong beach is 400 baht one way. Enjoy your trip to Thailand.

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 friendly. The only thing missing is a pool but with the beach so close it's not a big deal. We would definitely stay here again and we're hoping the next hotel we're going to will be just as nice as this one!

Room Tip: The mountain view room was great. We had a beautiful view and it was quiet at night.

Booked this hotel during promotion and I'm glad to see the hotel is so nice when i arrived.
The hotel is very new cause they just open 2 years ago.
Room is big and clean. TV have variety of channels.
The bathroom water pressure was good too but the shower hot water have to wait awhile after your friend/family took a bath.
Beer and soft drinks inside the room are complimentary too.
Breakfast was good too but not much choices.
Staff is very friendly and helpful. Few times we need to make calls to our taxi and they help us to call without charges.
After check out, they help to keep our luggage as our flight is late and lent us bathroom to shower before depart.

Room Tip: remember to request for city view room.

Really happy we made a choice to stay at Simplitel. The hotel has a great location, 5 minutes from Karon beach, and it has everything near by. It is clean, the service is excellent, and the best of all the value for money is 10/10.
If we come to Phuket again, we will stay at Simplitel again.
