“Quite good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2014

My husband stayed at this hotel a year ago and recommended that we choose it this time. We like it: location is nice, the staff are friendly and really fast in reaction to our requests. The neighbours are quiet maybe because of low season, anyway, we hear only noise from the shower sometimes, so nothing disturbs us here. We use the gym which is small but equipped with necessary machines and rented a bike only for 250 baht per day with no deposit. Across the road and a little left there's Kai restaurant and just to the right from the entrance - Red Onion restaurant that provide huge portions of food fr resonable price.

Room Tip: Street view and moutain view rooms are offered. The street gives more of a vibrant Phuket life and t...

Good location
Cleaning of rooms could be better - never empty ash tray and sometimes didn't clean glasses or sink. Had to ask for sheets to be changed.
Breakfast leaves a lot to be desired.
A lot of Russian guests but Karon is well frequented by Russians.
Staff are fine but not out of the way helpful.
Great ice cream place outside the door and red onion restaurant is fab which is next door too.
This hotel is perfect for a cheap hotel experience. It's adequate.

Absolutely fantastic hotel. The staff are so friendly and go out of their way to help. They let us cheap in early free of charge and helped a arrange day trips. The rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable with huge beds. The location is really good, only a 5 minute walk to the beach with plenty of restaurants and bars around. Would highly recommend this hotel.

Could say nothing bad on this hotel, absolutely.
I did stay at Simplitel during May, 2012, visit to Thailand, and decided to return at September, 2013.
Everything is fine - location is good (beach is located in 5-minute walk, the beachline-to-town bus passes the hotel every 15-20 minutes etc), staff hospitality is excellent (thank you so much, Ms. Mus), breakfast is OK (my warm greetings goes to Bee), no problems with room service. I just do not know what to add. I do not know would I stay at Simplitel during my next Phuket visit but the only reason to select another hotel could be the wish to stay at different Phuket location.

Room Tip: Contact hotel before arrival and you could get all the information needed

Brilliant hotel, situated perfectly. Wish they had a pool.

The concierge staff were so helpful for the four days I was there.

The rooms are large, clean and comfortable with a big balcony overlooking the mountains.

Considering the price I paid, I felt like I had paid a budget price and gotten five star service.

Highly recommended.

We arrived late on a flight to phuket. We had booked a different hotel but they were not there to check us in so we had to find another hotel instead. Thankfully we stumbled upon this very friendly hotel. The man at reception was so helpful and nice. We were a bit flustered but he showed us the room, gave us a good rate and also gave us late checkout as we were so late arriving which was a very nice touch. The room was very clean with all u would expect from a hotel e.g. Tv, coffe making facilities, toileteries etc. Only fault I had waa breakfast was not included in rate. There were hotels in the area for the same rate as we paid with breaky which is why we did not stay longer here. We were flashbacking and so on a bit of a budget. Would recommend to anyone.

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!!
