“Clean but noisy”
Reviewed July 25, 2013

Stayed in double fan room for two nights in april. The main positive points is that The room the cleanliness and the price, the cheapest one we could find. But the room is very basic, and you can see people walking pass from the small holes in the bathroom wall. Even at low season it was very noisy. A lot of young party goers drink until late before going out in their rooms listening to loud music, it can be hard to sleep.
The location is ok, around 10 - 15 minutes walking to get to the main beach

I would recommend staying somewhere else and really enjoy better your stay in phi-phi!

Booked for two nights but left after one sleepless night. Perfect if you wish to stay awake all night due to the noise of drunken people. But not good if you value sleep. Place was clean and staff friendly but its more for 18 year old party animals.

My girlfriend and i are travelling the globe for six months, therefore when reading this review remember the budget we would have and our criteria; 1.) Price 2.) shower 3.) clean 4.) character/experience.

The biggest bit of advise i could give is when you arrive walk past all the hotel staff on the pier and tourist shops and speak to scuba dive shops, when big boats arrive to Phi Phi the dive shops all stick reps out the front to sell you their packages. They are all generally English or European and they are all really friendly. they will happily give you a map of the island with all the hotels on. Point out the party spots to avoid or head towards and where they generally would recommend heading or where they often recommend their clients to stay. I think this is a great place to start because a typical Scuba Diver has plenty of money to dive (so will have stayed in nice places and acquired high standards) but would also want to save money on accommodation so they have more money for diving. Dive shops was how we found Harmony House.

Harmony House is great, cheap! We paid 600baht for an aircon room. With this you get aircon obviously, A FAN aswell (never had this before), wet room style toilet, fridge and a 32inch tv (not that you can see the pictures as the arial is non existent).

The pros of this place are that is very clean the cleanest yet on our travels, and we have been staying mainly in hotels like the Rattana Mansion in Phuket and Chiang Mai Thai house (both i would recommend aswell). It also had a fridge (free for you to put your water in) which is great, theres nothing like have chilled water on a baking hot day! You also get great Wi-Fi in the rooms.

Cons:
It's on a street, with shops opposite and underneath. This is great in the day, but when you're sleeping you may get woken up by them chatting/shouting or shutting up shop. But i imagine this will be the same all over the island.

Finally what i would strongly recommend is walking a little further down the same road to what we think is called "Phi Phi Garden home", it's 20meters further down. its where we are staying now. its not as clean, not as close to resturants or shops but it has HUGE amounts of character. It's again 600baht (plus an optional 100baht for breakfast inc) for a fanned bunaglow and you get lovely little room and beautiful toilet/shower room, a little porch area with hammock, bench and little fishes. This also looks over there garden area which is full of plants and cool decor, like banana trees etc. garden home again has great Wi-Fi.

I wish i could upload photos of this place, but it doesn't seem to have a trip advisor page??? I'm not one to take photos of rooms and upload them (as you can see here) but this place is beautiful and very cheap. i would feel very bad uploading the photos of this place on Harmony's page, so i'm going to make it my mission to get a Garden Home page started on TA.

To conclude if you want a clean well furnished guesthouse with aircon, then Harmony House is the place for you. But if you want character and the Thai experience Garden Home (20meters further) is the place to go.

P.S. the ratings I gave are all for Harmony House not Garden Home.

Room Tip: Sounds like from all the other reviews that the air con rooms are a lot cleaner.

WE got recommended this hotel by some friends. So we stayed here for 5 nights. the location is perfect. as you are a 5 minute walk from the Beach and Nightlife, and you are 3 minutes from the busy streets of shops and tattoo parlours. I would recommend this hotel as it has AIR Con and Clean rooms.

Hilariously bad room but its what you pay for.
Paid dirt cheap prices to stay here due to the higher prices on Phi Phi island as its a very popular island with higher prices (not by much though).
Woke up with a very large centipede crawling across my tummy (somersalted out of the bed to say the least), very little light if you are one to want to do your makeup before a night out, also VERY hot due to no air con.
I was on a budget holiday so did not spend more than £200 in 3 weeks of being in Thailand on accomadation, however this was definatly the worst place me and my two (female friends stayed).

If you are budgeting then it is all part of the experience however I would advise that you scout around abit more and stay in the bugalow style places in Phi Phi as they are similarly priced and better value/atmosphere, we decided to move after one night to a bungalow and it was much nicer and had a buzzing atmosphere.

Apart from the room there were no other problems but it is really cramped and not enough room to pre drink or socialise to be honest.

Room Tip: be sure to barter with all your accomadition!!

I stayed for 2 nights and got quite sick because of the disgusting smell which is everywhere, see other reviews for more details about the smell..however, the room itself would be good but certainly not the bathroom. The taps are so old and disgusting. After all, I would probably not recommend going there, it's really overpriced for what you get.
