Recent guest reviews

I stayed for two weeks this past February, it was excellent! Totally comfortable and safe. The AC was awesome, and the wifi was very strong. Very friendly staff. The room was clean and perfect for budget travel. I met very other guests that were super nice. I would highly recommend!

The stuff is very friendly and trying to help all the time. However, the rooms need urgent maintenance. The AC in 2 of our rooms was leaking, rust on the taps and some of the towels were torn. The pictures were probably taken at the first days of the hotel. In addition, the hotel is very far from the center and you need to take a taxi (50 bath per person) or walk about 20 min to get there. I personally rethink if to stay there again.

This is a nice hotel in a great location. The hotel pool is nice, however could do with a few more sun loungers. But great for a dip after a day out in the sun! The hotel is very clean, with the room being cleaned and fresh towels every day. Our bathroom smelt a little when the ventilation fan was on, therefore we just kept it turned off, and the problem was solved. The air conditioning can be a bit loud as well as the road outside the front, but nothing that stopped us from sleeping! Would definitely recommend this hotel to those on a budget :)

Absolutely delighted with this splendid little hotel. Suitable for all types of group. Families, even stags (we weren't on a stag do, but we might as well have been ;-) Lovely staff. Thanks for making our stay an absolute pleasure.

The hotel located on the quieter side of Chaweng Beach which suited my preference. You can find anything you need surround the hotel. Motorbike rental, laundry, restaurants, food marts, dive center and the list goes on. The staff very friendly and some of the well converse in English. The rooms is good size, very clean and well kept. Hòwever the bed is hard to my preference. That is the only negative part.

Hotel is on the end of Chaweng beach, however it is quite busy with all the restaurants and hotels in the area. Staff is very helpfull and skilled. Rooms are spacious and very clean. We stayed on the forth (top floor) and the noise from the street was not bad. Hotel has access to private beach which is excellent (about 700 meters from hotel).

We're really enjoying our stay here. Wonderful service, great breakfast and friendly staff. Hotel is clean and fresh. Quiet side of town, but close to beach and restaurants. Anything you need help with, just ask. Wifi is good too.

When we first arrived our room wasn't ready because it was about 7am, the staff offered us an orange juice and checked us in, then we left our bags while we waited for our rooms. The hotel is very clean and the facilities are well kept at the hotel. The rooms are basic with a bathroom and balcony, we had an inter-connecting door which was handy. Fridge, tv, kettle, wifi all in the rooms and bath towels and beach towels provided, which was good as it saves on luggage space. Staff at the hotel were friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable, they can book trips and excursions for you, which we did, we booked the Elephant trek/waterfall/animal show through the hotel. The hotel has shops and bars nearby, about 10 minutes away are a few more, then about 20-30 minutes is the main strip, its a nice walk. I would happily stay at this hotel again, it is just right, reasonably priced and not too far from anything.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for 4 nights and experienced the most wonderful service from all staff! They were all so helpful, kind and happy all the time! Our room was pretty nice especially for what we paid! Would recommend!!

Me & a friend stayed here for 3 nights whilst in Koh Samui. We were backpackers but liked how it was in the quieter end of town. Very spacious & clean rooms with a balcony to hang out your wet clothes. A nice little pool area with lovely staff. You can walk along the beach to get to the busier part of town it's about 50-100 baht each in a tuk tuk or taxi. Ideal for those on a budget looking for a quiet area. There are still quite a few bars & restaurants near this hotel.
