We were eaten by disgusting bed bugs every night. It was terrible. For that reason only I will never return to this place, which is a pitty because apart from bed bugs, this place has perfect location, nice rooms and friendly staff.

I was shocked when I entered this hotel.... I was under the impression of a 2 star cheap place to stay but was happily surprised to find a clean, friendly, pleasant hotel. The rooms are great! They all have a balcony with DIY kitchen appliances (not that you need to cook your own food in Thailand) and a modern bathroom with clean amenities. The highlight for me is the rooftop pool. So beautiful! Looking up at the mountains and taking it all in. Highly recommend!!! Great value for money. Enjoy :)

Stayed for 3 nights at this place. Managed to get it for a steal of the price (during the peak season) given that it is a studio apartment styled hotel. It has a functional kitchen with microwave, stoves and sinks which you can cook your meals if you are planning to stay for long periods.

The rooftop pool is beautiful, you get your own private sunning deck after a long day out around phuket. It even has a jacuzzi and steam bath as part of the roof top facilities.

Bed is a little hard and springy but you get what you pay for. The place is suitable for couples who like a bit of privacy off the kata hotel stretch and has an interesting viewing window which faces the shower.

Walk to the beach is around 15 mins downhill.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor as the balcony is great for watching the world go by.

This is a great little place with well equipped rooms, including cooking facilities, fridge, tv, free internet etc. The rooms were clean, comfortable and air conditioned. The bed was a little hard for my taste, but really quite fine. Walk to the beach was about 15mins, though a little precarious at times. Lots of bars and restaurants nearby if you don't want to travel far. If you look around you can get some good deals. Would most certainly return.

Room Tip: Avoid the road - ask for an odd numbered room.

We stayed for 5 nights, and it was ok. The walk tO the beach is about 15 minutes on a busy street with no sidewalks, but there are a couple of restos and a mini mart right next door. Try and request a room on the opposite side of the street bcause it can get very noisy early in the morning. All in all, next time i will pay a little more and stay closer to the beach (we paid 42 canadian a night) but this was fine.

6 of us stayed in this place for almost a week and it was very comfortable. What took us there was the price offered and we got more than what we paid for. The travel desk at the hotel was helpful and we could get good deals from there, including motorbikes for rent. There were lot of restaurants nearby for food, and a familymart right next to it. The roof top pool and along with the bar was quite a bonus for amount that we paid. The place looks just like what we see in other reviews, so i'm not posting more photos :-) There was a taxi guy nearby as well for reasonably priced airport transfer.

We didnt use the hotel restaurant as it never had anyone or anything about it to sit there, and once we sat there, they chef had gone out so we moved on. The free internet was slow, but ok. The tv didnt have many useful channels, but who watches tv on a vacation ;)

Room Tip: No view from balconies in rooms 23, 24 and 25
