We stayed here on a whim, wishing to be in a central location on Phi Phi. Located in the heart of the town The JC Andersen hotel offered an air-conditioned room for 600 baht per night.

They provide safety deposit boxes, however you must bring your own padlock. We didn't and they were happy to put our valuables in the hotel safe overnight.

Rather small and damp room with average sized wetroom but for a one-nighter this was adequate for what we needed. Could do with a refurb on some of the fixtures and fittings though and properly bleaching bed sheets and towels...

There are 4 cats to provide a warm welcome upon arrival, one of which was more than happy to make sure our room was habitable ;)

Having recently stayed here I feel obligated to warn travelers of the unhealthy conditions of the rooms. They were extremely damp and smelt strongly of mould and strong cleaning products. The smell of which still lingers in my clothes. The bathroom doors were rotting away and the shower water did not drain. To add insult to injury there were blood stains on both sets of sheets. I strongly advise you to look elsewhere. For the same price Phi Phi offers better alternatives.
