Phi Phi Hotel
Ranked #7 of 39 Hotels in Ko Phi Phi Don
Reviewed July 1, 2009

Stayed here for a few nights as we were island hopping and had a stop off at Phi Phi islands. Great hotel - comfortable clean and basic - nothing wrong with our room. Walk down to beach and u get the best view for the sun set which is amazin.. Clean and more than adequate bathroom.Would definately go back!

The hotel is nice and really close to the pier and beach. The pool is quite small and only a limited number of beds available. Easy access to bars and restaurants and staff were friendly.

This place was definitely a hotel, and you can tell the difference from the guest houses we had stayed at during our trip around Thailand. The service was good, the pool was good and breakfast was definitely above average - all in all, a safe bet for Ko Phi Phi Don and a good base while you're off enjoying the activities the island has to offer.There are some great restaurants on the island too which was a surprise!

Lived it up in the Maya suite whilst doing some diving, snorkeling and birding around the islands.

Location was ideal for exploring tonsai, longtails, and of course any or all of the main diveshops. Good view of the islands from the room, which was a fair size. Its really close to the pier, and close enough to the bars etc... without being too close!

Initial reception was perhaps a little cool, but efficient, and rooms were kept spotlessly clean.

Breakfast was perfectly acceptable.

we checked in March 2009;
why, same as everyone else, and why its so 'popular' its directly at the end of the arrival pier! leave your ferry with hundreads of fellow passengers, panic, and check in.
!first mistake! they will con you into thinking you can only have a lesser room, at a HIGHER rate (!) as 'you havent pre booked online'.
DO NOT GET CONNED, by this trick as everyone does; they will offer you higher rooms at even higher rates.
We got put in a subterainian room, with no windows, damp dark and smelly.
Accomodation throughout the hotel is actualy very poor.
The swimming pool claims to be 'natural water' ; its more like swimming in pure bleach, children (and adults) were all crying the minute you swim; also its tiny, more like a large jaquizze style, certainly not a swiiming pool.
The food was poor. The staff generally unhelpful and rude.
Cleaners are stationed on every floor from 6am onwards to 'catch out' any addtional visitors, (for which they call the police!) they chatter insessitanly on their noisy radios to beat the boredom, and awake all guests in the noisy concrete halls.
Relentless Notices about fines, and being taken to the police everywhere (!) toilets, reception, bedroom, pool, the list's go on......

In summary, go one street back, HALF your price, and get twice the standard.
DO NOT panic, and check into this first hotel that you see; Phi Phi is packed with bars,diving schools and accomodation, there is a huge surplus to go around, avoid this place like the plague, its over priced, dirty and down right rude.

i stayed here for one night in Dec 08.

On first impressions, the hotel was nice. My room was spacious and the bathroom was nice and clean. breakfast was fine if unexciting.

It wasn't until after i checked out the next day, that i realised I had bed bug bites covering my arms stomach and even on my face. They were huge ugly red bites and different to mosquito bites so i knew they were bed bugs. I looked like a complete freak on the beach in my bikini and when i went for a thai massage the thai lady doing the massage could not believe the state of my arms and face. i've had bed bug bites before, i know these bugs are not killed unless you wash bed linen in hot water....i think i paid enough money for them to not cut corners on the laundry.

i managed to get some cream from the chemist which took away the redness after a few days. but by this time, it was too late to go back and complain to the hotel.

but i would never go back here. i ended up staying somewhere else which was a total dive ie) a mattress on the floor in a room, but at least they were no bugs eating me alive!

I learned one thing about this island, there are no great hotels in the main part of the island. I heard good things about the Holiday Inn, but its in the middle of nowhere. We stayed here for 4 nights and had a very good stay. The rooms were clean, although the bathroom wasn't Zagat rated, and the hotel was in a great location. You are close to the beach, shopping, restaurants etc. The price was amazing as well for what we got. Sure there are no elevators but they aren't asking you to take 115 flights of stairs to get to your room. Also, get a room with a balcony and an ocean view, you will be very happy. The pool was also an added bonus when you get back from the beach.
