“Check your aircon!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2013 via mobile

All in all these rooms and hotel could be very good!
We stayed in one room but the aircon didn't work so moved to another the next night but still it didn't work so in the end we asked the lady if we could have a fan too she was very nice about it and practically gave us the only fan around! There is a lovely bar downstairs which has such good potential! The showers were good, and the beds comfy if only the aircon was working!
Would also recommend the place to eat right next door called Crystal it became "our local" and could not fault the food, price or service!
Overall good hotel! A little closer to the night life, working air con and you'd be on to a winner!

I'm currently in the hotel as I write this review, so I'm not speaking from memory when I write this.

Me and a friend are currently backpacking all around Asia, arriving at Koh Samui yesterday, and hence spent our first night in BB Hotel last night. The rooms were great! As we've been slumming it for a few weeks it is nice to have the luxury of air con and a nice big spacious room. There is also a fridge (with two complementary bottles of water), and a safe which was unfortunately broken. It's 700B per night for a double room, so at 350B each it was a pleasant surprise!

Our room looks over the main road so it gets noisy at times, but nothing too horrific and the noise died off towards the early hours of the morning.

There's a bar at the back of the hotel with a pool table that's free to anyone who buys a drink there, which is where we spent this evening. We were there for a few hours and what seemed at first to be a group of girls having a few drinks together turned out to be something completely different. We watched as middle aged white guys turned up throughout the night and started speaking to one of the girls. One guy walked off with one of the girls (who was well below half his age) and didn't return while another disappeared with another girl into a room in the corner of the bar, locked the door and pulled the curtains to, blocking our view. The guy came out looking very sheepish with a forehead glistening with sweat so I don't think I need to explain what they were up to, but we caught a glimpse of a double bed in the room when they left.

We overheard another guy asking one of the girls "How much if you touch it?", but in fairness we didn't hear the context so it is impossible to ascertain what was going on there.

If you do go, stay away from the bar!

I spent 10 days at this hotel; the room was spacious with good air conditioning, and the free bottles of water were an added bonus. There was cable TV with a range of channels, and a double bed, wardrobe, safe, fridge and separate bathroom. Overall this was a pleasant place to stay and the location was superb for the beach but not in a noisy part of town. I would definitely go back to this place.

I was travelling on a budget and came across the BB Hotel, The room was very clean, and cleaned everyday. Bed very big and comfy, It had everything i needed, air conditioning (a must) fridge, safe. The ensuite was roomy and clean, constant hot water.
The hotel was located apron 90 seconds from the lovely Chaweng beach and at the quiet end of the touristy bit. i liked it so much during my stay in Thailand, i stayed there 3 times on different occasions.
There is a bar downstairs which is great for that late night drink.
Everyone was very friendly, I have stayed in many hotels in Thailand and i really like the BB Hotel

Room Tip: I always had room number 5 but my friends rooms were just as good
