This was hands down the best place I've stayed in Asia. Super close to everything and amazing wifi. Best bang for your buck. I live in northern Thailand and had a family come visit for a week. After staying at another hotel we decided to move and found this gem. 10/10 would recommend to anyone.

Great hosts that helped with various aspects of our vacation. Rooms were very spacious and clean. Nice breakfast at reasonable rate but WiFi was slow and unreliable, although they were replacing the hardware due to electrical storm damage. I recommend this place if looking for a very comfortable room at a reasonable price and can put up with the younger,...

It is an overpriced hotel. 1. No privacy at all(the room has no walls from the one side and the curtains doesn't closing well!) 2. The bathroom was really small and full of mustiness! 3. The duvet has no cover so I guess that it was used from the previous guests without cleaning. 4. The room wasn't clean, there were...

Stayed at the Lotus while visiting my friend in Ko Samui. Great, friendly hotel, and incredibly good value for money. Friendly staff, clean rooms with air con and tv, and for a fraction of the price I have paid for other hotels that weren't as good in Thailand, have just extended my stay here. Thank you to all the Lotus....

Good basic hotel, very clean, very comfortable bed and big spacious room. Staff are friendly and helpful. The only bad points were that the wifi was very poor, the room had a funny egg smell which cleaners lit a candle every time they cleaned we assumed to rid the smell. The shower was awful but perhaps if we complained they...
