“Great hotel”
Reviewed December 26, 2012 via mobile


I stayed here for two nights and loved it! It was clean, it had hot water... what more can you ask for?! The location was a bit far, but really not a bad walk at ALL. Don't let that deter you.

The best part about this place is that my friend left her phone there and within minutes of us emailing, she responded letting us know she would ship the phone to our next destination... and she did! Not only that, she called the hostel and let them know a package was on its way! VERY rare to find someone so willing to go out of their way for a stranger. I loved my stay here and would recommend it to anyone.

My 8-yr old and I stayed for a week in this clean, well-kept, hospitable accommodation. The desk staff is helpful, kind, and professional. The lobby is well-lit and pleasant. Rooms are clean, bright, spacious, air-conditioned. Soap and shampoo are provided.
Walk to the beach (great swimming) takes 10 minutes and this is when you get to check out the village. The temple is near-by, 2 minute walk; market is Tues. and Sat., 4-9.
Beach towels, boogie-boards, beach toys are provided, no charge, for borrowing. Scooters rentals on the premises are 200 thb a day. Tickets for activities etc, and car hire, is done through the front desk - extremely efficient and easy. We found our driver, "S", this way.
Internet is in the lobby, as is food & beverages.
The price is great too, especially considering the cleanliness and amenities and management. We stayed somewhere else too that cost more, offered less, and just wasn't as well run - funny how it's the little things we take for granted and then really miss when they aren't around.

Overall, a great, affordable place to stay especially if you are new to Phuket/ Thailand.

The staff were very helpful and willing to help with anything information. The rooms were very spacious and very clean. We really enjoyed our stay there. In general, Karon is quieter than patong and so this hotel is located in a quieter area and most places close around 11 or 12am. if you are looking for a vibier nightlife, then patong is a 10min ride by scooter from here.

The Karon Living Room, Phuket, Thailand where I stayed for just 2 Nights but it was my best place ever visited i.e. Phuket & its various beaches such as Karon, Kata & Patong Beach were the best & Karon was best for me among all of them I visited. I never liked the beaches but after visiting Phuket it has been changed forever for me i.e. from thereafter I have started liking & loving the Beaches of Thailand specifically.

The Hotel is situated on the main Patak Road going towards the Karon Beach & Hotel is a nice one with spacious room, with cleanliness & all other amenities being provided at very reasonable prices. From the Hotel its a pleasant Walk of 10 mins. towards the North direction for going to the Karon Beach which has white-sand beaches, crystal clear water & the crowd is limited & mostly Europeans. Before living for the Karon Beach tell the Hotel Reception so that they would be giving you a Towel for the use at the Beach-side.

At last but not least I would highly recommend to visit Phuket if anyone visits Thailand as its the only place without seeing it your Thailand visit would not be considered as a valid one & its really worth seeing it & do keep to have atleast 4-5 days time at ease to enjoy it completely with nature at its best all across Phuket. I have not seen Hawaii but can assure anyone that Phuket is not less than it & can be more than it depending on one's personal choice.

Phuket as a whole is a destination which serves all the segments of the Travel Industry beginning from Luxury till Budget segments at an very attractive price which no one sitting in the North American & European continent can ever imagine about it unless they reach there.

PHUKET is my all-time favourite location on this third rock from the Sun which has everything that our mother-nature can offer us from Mountains, Greenery, Sand, Sea & Sun. Weather is tropical during the summer-time with high humidity levels but the mornings & evenings are pleasant when it becomes windy there.

Room Tip: Half of the Hotel Rooms are facing the main Patak Road & remaining are facing the back-view whic...

stayed here for 5 nights-on the 2nd part of our honeymoon. Only a few min walk from a lovely beach, pubs, bars and restraunts, they will help you get to see as much or as little of Phuket as you want, and always offer a great discount on excursions to Phi Phi Islands, and other destinations. Rooms are clean and have a safety box. Free bottled water left in your fridge each day, and very spacious. A/C a little noisy thoug, at times we had to choose between a/c and TV. Not easy to have both on st same time. Small restraunt on ground floor, serves awesome food, fresh and homemade. Good prices too!! This is my 2nd time here, and I would recomend it to anyone who wants a quiet and restfull time on their trip to thailand. Do remember to take 100 bht with you when you go to the beach thogh, as this pays for a sunloungerfor the full day. Its frowned upon if you just drop your towel on the sand and attempt to sunbathe there. After all, 100 bht isnt that much really, and in return you get safety, comfort and assurance that your belongings will be looked after if you choose to take a swim in the sea. Even when it rains the beaches at Karon are wonderfull!! Karon Living room is a GREAT place to stay, I hope to return again in the near future 10/10

Room Tip: Room 203-205 looked out onto the back, and view was lush greenery...dont know what the rooms at the...

We booked this hotel through Agoda not knowing what we were getting for what we paid. It was clean and big enough for the 3 of us. Staff were great - very helpful. Rooms were clean. We turned up on the 31st Dec and the fireworks did not stop for the whole time we were in Phuket. So if you want quiet - dont go during New Year celebrations. That was pretty much all throughtout Thailand. If you dont mind walking or having to get a Taxi this is not a bad place to stay. Taxi's, Tuk Tuks are cheaper here than in Koh Samui. We had a driver take us shopping all around town and then to the wharf to book our ferry tickets etc for a small fee of 300BHT. Its great when you can find a local driver who is willing to help. Wish we took his details.
