“Good value for money”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2014 via mobile

We stayed over the new year. The staff were friendly, helpful and polite.

Breakfast is okay, you get a choice and it's part of the price which came to us as a surprise.

The shower in the room was okay but you had to keep swapping from hot to cold. My husband took to running a bath which did take some time.

Sheets and towels were clean and acceptable

There is no view but it's close to Thongsala pier. It's gods value for money as some people we met paid more and were left with very basic rooms.

Swimming pool is covered by trees so a small part around the pool will give you an area to sunbathe. Pool was clean and we were happy to take a swim and cool down from the hot sun.

This place was excellent!!
Staff were super friendly and the room was basic but comfortable.
Had all the amenities one would need (fridge, seperate shower from toilet, aircon, restaurant, swimming pool)

As in the subject, the location was very good if you want to be located near thong sala pier, but very far from Haad Rin. If you are going to stay here and want to spend time in Haad rin I suggest bikes or a jeep but the roads to haad rin are quite treacherous even while sober!!

Overall this place checks all the boxes but reception isnt 24 hrs, wifi doesn't go all the way to the rooms - hence the 4/5 rating
Would stay here again!

The hotel was good and the staff very friendly and helpfull. The rooms were clean and the pool fine. But if you stay here, rent a scooter and og drive around the Island! Thong Sala isn't special......

This place ticks all the boxes in practicality, safety and comfort at a good price. The staff were so kind to us, we felt so much at home. The hotel in general is nice and clean in the areas I saw. It seems a family run place so that's maybe why the relaxed approach, but it didn't bother me, its actually better when things are informal on holidays anyways.The room was big for three sharing, although the third bed which was an extra bed was not as comfortable. The sheets were not so clean (stains from prolong use) but a change in duvey covers and sheets was quickly addressed with no fuss. The bathroom had a plumbing issue plus no shower door to cover whilst showering, but these a cosmetic things that can be fixed. Breakfast was modest and adequate. Hotel pool is great and area is safe and easy to go in and out of the main part of the island. Taxis are easily available and reception will help you with any needs. Was close to the port and small town with a few rows of shops etc. plus a market that I didn't get the chance to explore but maybe on my next trip! Going to the main part of the island is interesting in the back of the trucks and the winding roads and sea view at some points, it's a different experience.

This is ideal for anyone going to the full moon party. It is basic but its one of the few places in ko Phangan that is clean and safe(and has a pool). The staff are very nice but with true island style everything is done at a snails pace. For example the food in the restaurant is very slow...took over 45 minutes to get get a stir fry and breakfast took over an hour (though when it arrived it was delicious). The pool was a nice addition on a hot day. The hotel itself is a 15 minute walk from the harbour where the ferry comes in but if you have heavy suitcases you would be better off getting a taxi for a couple of Baht. It is about a 30 minute drive to the full moon party in Haad Rin but the owner was nice enough to drive us down in her pickup truck for 200baht each (4euro). Overall i would highly recommend Baan Busaba to anyone coming to Ko Phangan. I did a lot of research into hotels on the island as i had heard a lot of horror stories and when we arrived I was very happy with my decision.

I love this place. The staffs are helpful and friendly. I was there traveling with my friends and stayed at this hotel for 4 nights. We were there for the Full Moon Party.

Love the room. Big beds, clean and comfortable. Very near to the night market, walking distance. Love it!!

Will stay there again someday. :)))))
