Here for only two nights but were very impressed by clean rooms and attentive and pleasant staff. Could not be more helpful even i'n our persuit of a spray tan i'n Thailand, quite a challenge. Would stay there again if I were to return to Phuket which I hope not to! Hotel great Phuket not so much!

I stayed for 4 days and grew to like it more and more. It looks pretty plain from the outside, and it is not that close to the beach. I also had a really rough night the first night as the room was noisy (avoid the street side) but they changed room and apologized profusely.

Many things to see and do nearby!

Stayed here in April 2011. For couple and groups it is perfect, but for families a 10minute walk along an unpaved, busy street, with stray dogs is needed to reach restaurants and beaches. There is the option of cutting through movenpick resort, which will cut this out. The rooms are modern, and huge for the price you pay. Bathroom was also surprisingly nice

On arrival the hotel is very uninspiring seams tucked away in a corner but do not be decived the hotel is packed with suprises. The staff are friendly nothing is to much trouble they bent over backwards to help, one morning we had problems with a trip we had booked but they spoke to the agent then the driver of the taxi who couldn't find the hotel. Not all the staff speak engilsh but it's amaizing what can be achived with lots of smiles, hand signals and a laugh. Our room was spacious, very clean and the wow factor we had a sunken bath in the corner. There was a wet room with shower, vanity sink and toilet, the room also had a very large fridge there was no tea and coffee making stuff but we asked as we were leaving the hotel and they were in the room on our return We had a roon on the back and the view from the balcony was deffinatly not a sea view, it was more like a camp site for Thai builders but provided us with an insight how the other half live. The bed was very firm but very comfortable with lovely clean sheets. To the beach! having read other reviews we were prepared for a long walk the first time we walked was through the Movinpic Hotel complex which took us about 10 mins. if you didn't get lost it was a mase and a little boaring, the walk along the road through town took about 15 mins with shops ,bars and resturants to look at. We didn't have breakfast so can't comment . Overall we had a lovely stay

Rooms are very clean,stuff very friendly but there is no fresh air in bathroom.Towels are old but clean,security is very good.We stayed for one week in hotel and we had the best time in Phuket.İt is close to the sea and the restaurants around there are very good and cheap.Hotel personal is fantasticly helped us so much,if we again visit Phuket we surely stay in Karon Living Room hotel.Service is so quick and clean,kitchen is also very clean.So i advice to everyone for to stay in this hotel.Free internet for 30 minutes by their computer is enough for not to carry your laptops.

We went to Phuket last month and stayed at Karon living room, I don't want to say how good this hotel is, but I want to share a story with you guys who want to stay at Karon Beach.
We went to Kuala Lumpur after left Phuket. At KL' airport hotel we found that two jeans were lost. We called the Karon Living Room when we were back in Beijing. Fortunately, Vicky, the Hotel's beautiful Boss, had found the two jeans. surprisingly, she then posted them to China! It's a long journey from Thailand to China, so the post fee almost equals to the room fee! We have received jeans at the beginning of this month, I can't believe that my jeans can be back to me.
That is a real story which makes me like Thailand. We are going to go back to Thailand again next March.

I wanted to write a review following on from an excellent stay at the Karon Living Room hotel. For a budget price the rooms are modern, spacious and clean, the location is convenient and the staff are excellent. We had a few issues with tours and dodgy Thai travel agents but the manager went out of her way to sort out all of our issues, recoup the money and re-book a couple of alternatives. They also sang to me on my birthday which was very sweet. In short, this isn't ever going to be a 5 star luxury resort but it is probably the best budget hotel in the area - highly reccommended!
