Reviewed June 2, 2013

the hotel building is new,AC is very chilled, the staff are bit rude which is normal in Thailand :).location wise it is far from the shops and the restaurants. Breakfast is average, nothing much other then cornflakes and eggs. Good if you have your own transport like bike or car.

Room Tip: Far from the main attractions

If you are looking for a clean hotel with a great pool near shops and restaurants without spending a fortune then this is the perfect place.

Located at the southern end of Chaweng, across the road from the Centara Grand Beach Resort and up a well lit side street, the hotel provides a free shuttle to the beach where you can use the facilities of one of their sister beach front hotels or just a 5 minute walk to the public access area.

Loads of great cheap restaurants, shops, spa's and a well stocked 7 eleven just around the corner from the hotel. Easy walk to the Chaweng walking street market, Chaweng boxing stadium (muay thai fighting). 30min walk to the main busy part of town. Plenty of songthaews (truck like taxis) passing day and night if you don't fancy walking, flag one down and just shout when you want to get off, 100 baht to centre during day but agree a price before getting in late at night.

I stayed in a superior studio which was very clean and spacious, air con, tv, fridge, safe, hairdryer and a great shower, You have to pay for wifi in the bedrooms but it is free in the reception area and at the pool. There is only a lift in the main building but the staff helped me with my bag up the stairs to my room upon check in. Room was cleaned daily with fresh towels.

Great swimming pool with comfy sun beds, pool towels and pool bar for drinks and snacks.

I paid for the airport transfer, 400baht and was picked up in the hotel minibus which saved a lot of hassle.

The hotel also sell all the same sightseeing trips you can get from the tour agents on the main street, as I only wanted to visit a few places on the island, the hotel arranged their minibus for me for 4 hours, visited Big Buddha temple, viewpoint, Grandmother and Grandfather rock, Mummified monk and a waterfall.
They also helped me book a speedboat transfer over to Koh Phangan for the Full Moon Party, defo recommend booking a VIP transfer with Petcharet Marina, taxi pick up from hotel, rtn transfer to Full moon party (no queues or overcrowded speedboats) and return taxi back to hotel.

Overall I had a great stay here, hotel was clean and the location was perfect for me, staff were all very friendly and helpful, will definitely stay here again if I come back to Koh Samui.

Room Tip: Pay more for a room with a balcony overlooking the pool if you want a room with a view.

First we were booking that hotel for a stay for 3 days and we were planing to go to a hotel close to Silver beach. But we like it so much, that we changed our travel plan and we spend all 2 weeks on Koh Samui in Verticolor Hotel. The Manager was very helpful and friendly. First room we stayed was with mountain view, but close to a road, so at nighttime it was little bit noisy. Next morning we changed room, it was very quite room. We could also us the beach infront of Resotel Samui, the sister Hotel. Chaweng Beach is the best beach with fine sand and clear water. There are many restaurants and spas close around. We also took a cycle and checked some parts of Koh Samui, but we liked that part most, where we were staying. Before we went to Beach and after we come back it was nice to go for swimming into the pool. If we visit again to Koh Samui, we will stay again at Verticolor.

Stopped here after searching net, was cheaper end of what I looked at, once I found it( Samui can b a nightmare for addresses) I booked it via net, and rolled up next day, the reception was like new, and the room was incredible, I was in the newer looking section, and I couldn't fault it for anything, really modern, contemporary look to rooms, great facilities, good pool, nice staff, much more hotel than I expected for what I paid,and my only choice next time I'm in town, life is too short to risk choosing a dive(see my other review)

Stayed at the Verticolor last month for 5 days and was very pleased with it. Pool is nice, rooms are fine and clean. Just great value.
Only black mark was that at one point I hung something on a hanger in the room and the hanger fell apart. I didnt think anything of it but then at check out they billed me for the hanger! Wasnt a lot of money but kind of irritating.
Overall I would highly recommend the hotel if you are looking for something in the "3 star" price range.

I stayed at the verticolor for ten nights on my journey through thailand. This was a wonderful modern hotel. Great big rooms and lovely waterfall shower! We enjoyed chilling by the pool with a strawberry daiquiri ! Staff at reception could be better but overall I would rate this hotel and I will stay again when we return to koh samui! Near the beach and loads of street vendors on walking street!

Room Tip: Go to mr tipsys bar on walking street for 60 bhat cocktails!!
