“Interesting and out of ordinary place to stay in Kata”
Reviewed 25 January 2011

No non-sense guesthouse in busy Kata. We have stayed here for three nights. Very comfortable lounge, airy feel, with a view of the hills on the background. Room #1 has an excellent bathroom!
Owner Kelly offers cooking classes for 1000THB; well worth it, as you get to eat the 3-4 dishes at the end.
Free internet, location is quiet, it is on a side street from the main road. Kelly organised the pick up from the airport for 400TBH, also organised the ferry trip to Phi Phi.
Among the beaches, we enjoyed Kata Noi the best; it costs 200THB with the local taxis (yes, they are very expensive, considering the very short ride; unfortunately, they have a local taxi mafia operating here) but it is worth it.
Recommended as a small guesthouse with character.

This was our first visit to Thailand so we didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised with our accomodation at 3rd Street Cafe and Guesthouse. We spent 4 nights in a large room on the 3rd floor. Our room was quiet, clean and very comfortable. Kelly, our host, made good suggestions about things to see in the region.

The hotel is perfectly located on a quiet street that is an easy walk to the Kata Beach. Beach towels are available for a small rental fee.

Breakfast is available for 120 Bhat. My favorite was fresh fruit (melon, mango, papaya, etc.), fresh squeezed orange juice, toast, and yogurt. My husband especially liked the banana pancakes or the hearty egg/ham/bacon option.

On our next visit, we will take one of the Thai cooking classes that Kelly offers.

We think that this is a good moderate-priced hotel near Kata Beach. Thank you Kelly!

We've stayed at 3rd street cafe for almost a week and we've really had a great time there. First of all, Kelly and Tom are incredibly nice and friendly and they really make a difference for your stay! It feels like staying at a friend's house rather than in a hotel. They were very helpful with everything, including giving tips where to go and what to see. Kelly gives cooking classes and her food is soo yummy, one should definitely try it. Rooms are spacious and clean. We would certainly go back to 3rd street cafe and we'd recommend it to all of our friends. Thanks for the great stay!

I stayed here for 2 nights with some friends and enjoyed every minute!!! 3rd street cafe is clean, trendy and have an awesome staff. Kelly was extremely helpful with everything that we needed. She arranged trips, taxi rides and anything else we needed without any hesitation. I would definately recommend this place to anyone visiting Kata beach!!! The best part is that its walking distance of Kata (5 min) and Karon Beach (10 min)!

I was in Kata for a few days to relax and enjoy the beach, I stayed at the 3rd Street Cafe Guesthouse and couldn't have found a better base, in fact I extended my stay by 2 nights.
The rooms were very spacious and modern and felt quite homely, the location was central and the owner and her family were all very friendly.

Me and my friend went to Phuket only for the beaches and Similan Island. We booked and stay at "3rd Street" for 3 nights and I think it is good for us. Staffs are friendly, room is spacious, the rate is pretty good for accomodations in Phuket. It doesn't have any nice view from the room, but it is locate at the Kata Night Bazaar and walking distance to Kata Beach & Karon Beach. If you simply want a clean comfortable room in reasonable price to stay while you are in Phuket, I think it is a good choice!

I stayed with my boyfriend 6 days in 3rd street cafe & guesthouse. Our room was well decorated, clean and comfortable. The location of the guesthouse is really good: just few meters from Kata beach (white sand, blue water) and close to several shops and restaurants. We really appreciated Kata because it is not as crowded as Patong and other places in Phuket.
We really would like to thanks Kelly and Tom for their warmness and availability during our stay. We won't miss your place if you come back to Phuket net year!!!!
Marjorie.
