This unassuming and slightly hidden hotel turned out to be a gem with pleasant staff, good value and handy location. It was only an overnight stop but at A$25 represented good value as the room was clean and cute, there was a fantastic swimming pool/lounge area, well-manicured grounds and attentive staff. The room was small and basic and lacked a safe but was very serviceable. There was a nice patio area, the shower was hot if needed and everything worked well. The location was a handy 5 minute ride from the airport, the upper Chaweng Beach could be reached within a 5 minute walk and there were plenty of great beachside restaurants with cheap prices.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here in June. I can honestly say that this hotel is a really good price and has everything that you need to have a good time. It is North Chaweng, so about 10 min walk into Chaweng (which is preferred from us as some nights we would just head across the road to Your Place resort and chill at the reggae bar in front of the sea). Staff are so lovely and friendly here, they help in any way possible. Look out for 'Mat-Dum' the nice resident Pug pooch who wears his jumper and loves watermelon :D. The pool is clean, has a jacuzzi at the end and the pool gets sun all day. You are a 1 min walk from the beach which you can cut through the other hotels across the road to get to. You have a 7-11 right near there and loads of street food too. It is really a good place to stay. Powerful showers, clean rooms, good facilities. The hotel was happy to assist us as we changed our plans daily and needed to extend the room etc. This was never a problem for the staff. Make sure whilst you are here you hire a moped or take a taxi to the night market near the pier if you want to experience some real Thai foods. Also, there is a ring road you can drive around the island and it takes you into the hills, this was brilliant. Also - if you go to the waterfalls, make sure you do the waterslides - They are EPIC! Thank you to everyone at Baan Rom Mai!

We read the reviews online which said the fans in the room where adequate. Unfortunately the fans provided little relief from the heat. It was extremely uncomfortable. There were insects and a large frog in our room. This was probably due to the fact that the door was open when we arrived. Our stay was so unpleasant that we checked out a day early. We have travelled south east Asia for two months and this was without a doubt the worst place we stayed. There is far better value to be got elsewhere.

We stayed in the bungalows, which are worth the extra money, its at the northern end of Chaweng, quieter, but easy to catch a songtaew or hire m/bike to the busier end, only 5 mins walk away. Across the road is the beach accessed through "Your Place" restaurant and resort a shady and peaceful place to spend afternoons and evenings.

Baan Rom Mai was located over the road from Chaweng beach, convenient for beach and main strip. Staff were friendly and helpful. Awesome pool. Only downfall was our shower wasn't warm for the 5 nights we stayed.

We first stayed here in 2015 and absolutely loved it. So much so that we booked to stay here when we visited this month. The location is great, just 2 minutes to the beach and 10 mins to the busy area of chaweng beach. The staff are so friendly and can not do enough for you. The rooms are basic but very clean and for the amount of time you spend in them they are perfect. The pool is lovely and clean and 90% of the time we were the only ones there so it was like having our own pool. We will definitely go back when we visit next.

We were traveling to koh samui and searched a place to stay . We read good reviews about this hotel so booked room a day before. We reached the hotel at around 9 in the morning. When asked about the room the manager said we will have to wait till 2 pm to get the room! As the previous guest hasn't left. She rudely told her to roam around and come back by 2. We requested her to give us another room to freshen up as we had traveled 12 hours straight in a bus from Bangkok. At last after 2 we got the room. And in midnight we woke up to aircon water dripping on to the bed. We had booked a private cottage with a garden view. Also don't expect any room service here. The beach is not about a mins distance as you will find in some reviews but 5-10 mins walk. Please be careful while you booked this hotel.

I've stayed here quite a few times now and never had a problem with the rooms or staff They are clean ,comfortable and have a decent sized fridge which is wells stocked and reasonably priced. The hotel is at the far end of chewang up towards the airport so it takes 5 mins to get there from the airport which is perfect when you have had a long flight. The lady who runs the place is very friendly and always has a smile on her face and is always asking if you need anything They cook food there aswell basic Thai which is really good and cheap The pool is quiet and always kept clean and tidy and the beach is about 100 meters away across the road It only takes 5 mins to walk into the main strip of chewang and its best to get a taxi bike back or cab if your own your on late at night as parts of the road are quiet and don't have street lights I love Thailand and Samui is my favourite place l, I stay at baan rom mai because it's peaceful cheap friendly and clean

Stayed here for 3 nights, rooms are small but they do the job. Nice pool area. Staff are lovely and really helpful. Location is great - walking distance to the Main Street but far away enough to be peaceful. Would stay again if visiting koh samui.

Lovely little hotel very close to the beach, Quiet area, the rooms had everything you might need- mini bar, tissues, soap, fridge and so on... The rooms were slightly dated & the decor was off ( see pics) but the bed was Comfy. the gardens were lovely and the pool area was perfect for relaxation as its very quiet. The best bit of this hotel was certainly the dog in reception! The ladies who run the hotel were absolutely amazing & catered to our every need, They were so friendly and sweet. For the price I would defiantly recommend this hotel.
