My wife and I stayed at Chaulty Towers for 5 nights in December 2010. The location is excellent - 7-10 minutes walk to Lamai beach. Location is quiet, rooms are clean, hot water, a/c, mini fridge. The beds are rather hard, but we like harder beds, so it worked perfectly for us. Just don't expect 5-star accommodations and you will be very happy at Chaulty Towers. The hotel has a small pool and a hot tub, which is nice. Free and very fast wi-fi Internet was a big plus. Steve, the hotel owner, is a very friendly guy and will give you a lift to town any time. Overall, this hotel's price/quality is unbeatable on Koh Samui.
Most of all that impressed us was the service. We left our clothes at a nearby laundry the day before our departure, and it was a mistake - the laundry lady simply was not home the entire morning 8-12 on our departure (do Not use the laundry on the same side of the street - the laundry lady is unreliable). So, we left without our clothes and asked Steve if he would pick it up and mail it to our hotel in Bangkok. He did so the very next day and did not even charge anything for the express overnight mail to Bangkok! Wow! We have never seen hotels offer such a great service. Thank you, Steve - we will be back.
