“Great budget hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2012 via mobile

Our travel agent booked us into a hotel (Citin Urbana) that is still under construction and not open for business yet and we somehow ended up at this place instead (must be part of the same hotel chain). We were pleasantly surprised, the service was excellent and the rooms were very modern and clean. The breakfast was pretty awful but all in all I would recommend this hotel, good value for money and in a central location, not very far from Chaweng beach.

Big clean rooms and a decent breakfast. The beach is just a short walk away, lots of eateries around-good value for money. The only suggestion I'd like to make is that WIFI should be free in the rooms as well not just around the lobby.

Great Hotel with superior rooms for a good price and very important; lovely staff! Besides that; near to the beach (3 minute walk) and nice swimmingpool in front of hotel. There are transfers from and to the hotel and motorbikes can be rent at the reception.

I came across this hotel after Florist hotel informed me 1 week before my trip that they had no rooms for me despite my confirmation. I was going to Koh Samui to celebrate my husbands’s birthday /New year countdown. This hotel was relatively new then and I could not find any reviews. The lady I was liasing with via email (Siriporn) was very helpful so I took the chance and proceeded to book. She told me that I can pay once I check in. I included the land transfers (not cheap).
We did not find any taxi waiting for us when we reached the Koh Samui airport. So we had to make a roaming call and it seemed like the hotel staff overlooked. Ok fine. We got into this hotel. It is not by the main road, which is good. Just about 5 mins walk in. A very cheery colourful short building. Nice looking pool (we never used it). We had to wait a long while to check in. No aircon at the reception. The receptionist were least bit helpful. They were slow and it seemed as though they refused to answer my questions. I asked for the staff whom I was liasing with but too bad she was not there. After a grumpy check in, we went to our room and we really liked it. We were given a free upgrade to the suite on the 6th floor. Comfy bed bathroom ok, small sofa bed by the corner. It was good for the price we paid (not including the receptionists). I ordered a birthday cake for my husband and was not charged for it.  breakfast was basic. Nothing much. We could not get any bikes to rent as they were all rented out. Overall, I would stay here again if I go back to Koh Samui.

Room Tip: you can see the sea from the 6th level.

I got a very cheap deal for this hotel, around 15 euros a night for a very comfortable room. The pool is big and enables one to swim in it happily and relax. There is also a gym. The hotel lives up to good modern European standards (shower, bedding, lighting, plugs, tv etc).
At night may be a bit noisy with people going back and forth but with ear plugs you'll be fine.
You have to pay an expensive cab to go to the airport (that's what they call a shuttle!!) but then that's the same everywhere in Samui, only way to avoid the cost is to try to pool with other people catching same flight. The surroundings are typical of Samui: noisy, very commercial....

Room Tip: The higher the better.

Booked at the last minute due to a change in plans and were so happy with what we found!

It is in a brilliant location and very close to the beach. Rooms were amazing! So clean, big, modern and luxurious and the aircon was fab. The tv channels on offer were brilliant too! Room service was cheap and the food was good as was the food at the pool bar. Definitely recommend the ice slushy drinks which are made at the pool bar!

The pool was huge and there were always sun loungers available at all times of the day.

Reception staff were very helpful but we did have some problems with the room service staff - both the people that tried to take our order on the phone and the person who delivered our food - they were very rude and unhelpful even though it was them that had made the mistake.

This is the only downfall I can think of though! Everything else is great!! You can also book scooters through the hotel which were only 200bhat a day! Very useful for getting around and lots of fun - just be careful of the roads as they can be unsafe!

Would definitely recommend this hotel! We returned to it after a short trip to Koh Phangan as we loved it so much and upon our second arrival we were given a free upgrade for returning! If you are staying in the Chaweng area don't hesitate to book this hotel!

I found the hotel staff very negative and one guy behind the desk actually admitted being racist.
The pool was so full of chemicals that my eyes instantly started burning and the place smelt. That could just be Chaweng though which is generally a tacky dump.
The room was fine which i suppose is the main thing but i would not part with my money again to these people who are clearly advised by poor management to be so vile.
