My wife and I stayed in this hotel, because my wife was taking the open water course at the Ban's diving shop. Since she was a student, we could get a room (with air condition, TV and shower) for 500 baht only (10 Euros). 2 dive cost only 1800 baht (35 Euros), and only 1400 for ex student (30 Euros).
The room was very simple, but very clean, and we were just 2 minutes from the beach. This hotel is right in the middle of Sairee beach, and close to all restaurants and shops. For this price, don't expect luxury and hight standard service.
During our stay, we found that the service was so so, one day I asked to have my towels changed 4 times! Everytime, they say they will change it, but when I was back in the evening, it was not! I complained to the boss, she said that it was too late to change and that they were very busy that day, which I understood, because it was right during Songkran (national holiday in Thailand).
The hotel's restaurant is right on the beach, with very nice view to the ocean. The staffs were not so friendly, and did not like to smile. It was like were bothering them whenever we asked them something.
In conclusion, it's a very good value! Simple, clean and right on the beach, even though the service is not very good, I would go back to this hotel, because of the price, the location and the diving shop.
