“Not just for divers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

I stayed here some years ago, now I could tell you how nice and quiet it is, or how clean, and tidy, but I'd prefer to tell you how happy I was staying there. The staff are excellent, lots of fun, and very helpful. The breakfast is good, the rooms are big and comfy. So if you need somewhere in Phuket, this is the one to go for..!

Room Tip: All the rooms are quiet, ones at the back are possibly best.

Divers Inn is situated virtually on Karon Beach(known to locals as little Russia)

There are eating options close by and in comparison to neighbouring Patong is a very quiet place to be.

Divers inn is a budget option for those on a thin line. The rooms are spacious and well equipped for the money and come with aircon and a balcony.

Wifi is really dodgy at the hotel but only requires a trip to the reception to get the router re-booted to be back up and running again.

The Staff were very friendly and helped us book Dinner at restaurants and advised us on how to get to places.

Contrary to the name the Divers inn offers No diving facilities whatsoever. The agent they use is located a mile away and there are other agents on the way.

We would stay here again although it is doubtful we will ever return to Phuket

Room Tip: Room 31 had good ceonnectioon to the internet and a Balcony. Aircon worked

this is a very good place for a budget traveler. for 1000 Baht/night you get a very clean, nice room with bathroom, fridge, a/c and balcony. even though the place is quite old and the furniture used everything is kept clean and there were no signs of any bugs, worms or anything like that.

Myself and a friend trekked to stay in this hotel..had done research on prices and enquired when we arrived only for the price to suddenly be DOUBLED!we went online to show the price that was presented on the website..only for the rude front of house to ignore us and continue to maintain the doubled price.. she didn't explain to us how the price had suddenly changed and when we showed her the online price she said that it was "out of her control" very rude even to other guests that were passing through reception!

My boyfriend and I came to Karon at the end of our trip to Thailand and stumbled across it by mistake. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and spoke good English. The room cost was far lower than any of the other places we had looked at close by. The room had air conditioning, a fan, a tv with English channels, free wi fi in the rooms and use of the internet at reception, the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. There was also a fridge to store food-drink and you could buy drinks too for a reasonable rate. The location is just off of the main road along the beach and it is only a 15 minute taxi ride to Patong or a 5 minute walk to Kata.

The guest house offers a breakfast for a small fee and there are plenty of places around to find food. All in all we had a really nice stay here, on the first night there was a problem with the toilet leaking and we were moved to another room immediately with no fuss. The owner was very helpful and gave us information on how to find local tourist sites and on scooter rental.

If you are on a budget but still want good accommodation then we would highly recommend this guest house!

Didnt seem to have anything to do with diving, as there was not encouragement or information for diving.
The rooms were spacious, but the bed was uncomfortable and the shower didn't always have hot water. We also had trouble with the locks on our window and shared balcony,
The staff were friendly and the location was great, close to shops, restaurants and bars. Also only a 10 minute walk to Karon beach. Just think it was a bit overpriced compared to other Thai guesthouses.

Room Tip: Check windows and doors lock.

I choose it because the owner answered the booking request quickly and friendly. Transfer from and to the airport was organized by the hotel, all smooth. Owners are Swedish and very friendly in receiving guests, rooms clean and corresponding to tariff, breakfast is all right. Only unpleasant note the behavior of the Thai women who seems a manager or local co-owner, unfriendly every day and at any hour of the day without reason, a pity, as otherwise the place is all right.
