Ranked #46 of 144 Specialty Lodging in Ao Nang
Reviewed December 29, 2012

1/3rd of the rooms in this hotel are not complete yet. Others are still under construction. After arriving at 6pm, I waited 2 hours for them to basically build my room. The room is clearly still under construction. The shower taps were just glued in and the tub was unusable. Half of the electrical sockets did not work and neither did hot water most of the time. There was no towel hook or rack installed and some old furniture was just brought in from storage. I didn't have an overhead light or side table lamps.

The worst part is that they charged me the same price as my friends that got a finished room (which was beautiful by the way). They claimed I didn't inform them of the problems, but the staff I spoke with conveniently forgot when it came time to check out. This hotel will be great when it is done...maybe by April 2013. Until then, be warned: you have a good chance of getting a room still under construction and they will charge you the same price as the fully finished rooms. There are much better options on Ao Nang for the price.

Hey all :)

I just wanted to add a few notes on this Hostel / Hotel:

THe map location information on Agoda and a few other sites in innacurate and it seems almost no locals and Tuk Tuk drivers know where it is so ask to be taken to the Pavillion Queens Bay hotel and iRest is just behind ;)

Their contact number is: +66846605468 if you need it...

I cannot comment on the dorm rooms as I booked a double room which is excellent, modern and well equipped. The view from the balcony is very nice and the staff are friendly and helpful.... the bathroom actually has a bath!

It is approximately 5 minutes walk to the beachfront which is no hassle for me but might be for some....
