“Simply Simplitel”
Reviewed May 14, 2014

This place is great! Spacious rooms w nice sized balcony, in room safe, and includes breakfast daily. There's free wifi and an internet center!

The location of the hotel is wonderful! Just next door to a mini mart and ATM and also right across the street from an amazing seafood place that was offering 10% off food and drink during my stay. The beach is a very short walk (leave the hotel
And go right) away. Be warned, you must pay 200bht for chairs on the beach and there are locals walking around to sell trinkets etc.

Don't buy any excursions as the hotel offers them at a great price!

Enjoying my stay and hope to stay here again when I return to Phuket!!

A hotel with a good location facing the main road where restaurants abound, shopping is everywhere, affordable massage for the tired body is across the road and a night market within walking distance. To top it all the service is excellent and friendly.

I've been there for the first time, the Hotel is new and very well designed. It is simple but it has everything. The gym is great and the position is in the center of Karon, so every amenities as bar, restaurant and beach is within walking distance. The hotel provide also the beach towels, it is very useful and convenient. The room are quite big and well equipped, air cond, TV, free Wi Fi etc. The hotel has a private parking area in which you can recover your car our motorbike. The service it is amazing, the breakfast is good and you have a good choice of fruits, Thai and continental food I love it. The breakfast room is located on the terrace from which you can see the sunny Karon city. As I wrote the hotel is pretty close to the main tourist action nevertheless it is very quite and you do not hear any noise from above, so you could have a good sleep and have an appropriate rest. The service and people are quite efficient and they'll do the extra mile to accommodate your needs. I'll be there again next year

Room Tip: Try to get the the room that face the swimming pool, it is a nice view in the morning.

Clean, quiete, nice rooms. I enjoy it. The view from back rooms is wonderful. The breakfast could be better. Good location in the middle of Karon and close to many restaurants and shops. The gym is small but enough to ecercise during a holiday period

Dengan kamar seluas ini (cukup untuk 4 orang) jika di bandingkan dengan harga kamar, adalah murah. Hotel ini selain bersih dan nyaman, memiliki free wifi, air hangat-dingin, handuk hotel dan handuk pantai (disediakan terpisah) Flat screen tv monitor terpasang pada dinding, save box, sendal hotel, electric cattle beserta kopi dan teh dan juga air botol minum yang selalu di berikan setiap hari. Tempat tidurnya comfortable, dan memiliki balkoni untuk bersantai.

Lokasi berada tepat di pusat kota Karon, memudahkan utk mencari makan, transportasi, agen-agen perjalanan tour, massage center, dll. Karon adalah kota tempat dimana anda betul - bisa memanjakan diri anda. Yang harus anda coba adalah, mango salad and tom yam seafood. Keasliannya terasa dan enak banget.

Kemudian jika anda merasa kekurangn minuman, dan hendak membeli makanan lain atau keperluan lainnya, di samping hotel ada toko (sejenis 711) yang buka 24 jam. Hotel ini juga menyediakan transport from and to the airport dan juga perjalanan rekreasi lokal.

Memiliki fasilitas Gym dan Komputer utk tamu hotel, restoran berada di lantai 2, luas dan ada smoking area. Menyediakan hidangan lokal dan western secara sederhana.

Room Tip: Untuk extra fasilitas, atau request pick up dan juga twin beds or double bed. Anda harus mengirimkan...

Modern, spotless, huge room, large and amazing bathroom, comfortable bed, fast WiFi, in-room safe and great views. I can't say enough good things about the Simplitel - a 5* property for a low price. It's an amazing value and a good location. Every room has a balcony, ours looked out onto the mountains in the back of the hotel - an awesome place to have a quiet dinner. The breakfast was included with made-to-order omelettes. It's a 5-minute walk to the beach and the hotel provides free beach towels. There are many restaurants and spas on the main road right next to the hotel. The hotel is 90% Russian tourists, as is all of Karon beach.

One small wrinkle: we wanted to do a late check-out, which our contract stipulated cost a certain price. When trying to extend, the front desk clerk refused to give us that price since they just changed it the night before at a "meeting" to double the stated rated on our contract. She didn't have the authority to charge the old price. We asked to speak to the manager the next morning - she apologized and quickly resolved the situation by giving us the previous contract price. An example of good customer service.

I'd definitely stay here again.
