“New, clean and affordable”
Reviewed 23 August 2012

Located on busy street, the hotel is less than one year old, surrounded by restaurants and five minutes walk to Karon beach (Great beach). Good WiFi in the room and free use of new computers in the common area. Breakfast is ok, just average. My room had a very good bed and basic, modern bathroom which is well constructed and everything works well. Good flat screen tv and super quiet and cool airconditioning.
The only thing missing from the room is a "stand" for the suitcase.
It's not 5 star so don't except the entire area of the hotel to be air conditioned.
I would recommend this hotel for a one week stay at Karon Beach.

I stayed here for 4 nights in August and the price was very reasonable (only 1000 Thai Baht) in this new hotel, which has a slightly nordic feel to it. The room and hotel are clean and tiday and breakfast and internet is included. The room also has a tv with international news channels to keep up to date. While it has no pool, as other reviewers mention it is only 5 minutes walk to a lovely long sandy beach. Karon is a good choice for those who want a slightly more laid back beach holiday.

i were here with my family for two weeks and it were great. The hotel were really clean and the staff were vary kind.it is a shame that there isn't a pool but the beach right next to it so it doesn't matter.there is family mart right next to lobby so you dont have to even cross a road and a really cheap restaurant is on the right side to the hotel so everything you need is right next to you

We came back to The Simplitel because we really enjoyed our first visit here in February .Being high season then everything was very expensive so getting a reasonable price for a hotel makes the holiday not too costly .We stayed here as a base and have been to stay on another island and other resorts over Phuket .It is cheap enough to leave our belongings here and come and go as we also have a hire car and they have underground free parking .Very friendly and very clean .The veranda russian restaurant just outside is also very clean and cheap and lovely food .Only a 5 minute walk to the beach as there is no pool here but Karon beach is a beautiful clean beach .We will come here again deffinately From kat59

Room Tip: Room at back looking over the hills are quieter

Simplitel is a wonderful hotel. It is close to the beach and the people are nice. The rooms are modern and clean. The shower can be set to very hot and the water pressure is higher than any other hotel ive ever stayed at. Flat screen tv in the room with plenty of russian, english, and chinese channels. The bed is huge and very comfortable. Air conditioner is high quality and really gets things cooled. There is a really cute little deck in the room overlooking the outside markets or the mountains (depending on which side of the hotel you are staying at). The room has a safe and a fridge, and the internet speed is better than other hotels I have stayed at. Downstairs is a little convenience store similar to 7-11 and has a lot of various things.

Food in this area is about twice the cost of Bangkok and 25% more expensive than Patong. Even though Simplitel's accomodation costs are very cheap, the surrounding area isnt a good place for a budget traveller. It would be perfect for a honey moon though! Very quiet and friendly.

Dear latermuse,

Thank you very much for your review. We are highly appreciated. Also, we are happy to know that you had a good time staying with us.
As you mentioned, food price around this area could be higher than in Bangkok. I do recommend "Red Onion" restaurant located just next to the hotel. Food at this restaurant is at reasonable price and with good taste.
We hope to seeing you at Simplitel again in a near future. Please do not hesitate to contact our staffs for promotion and special deal when you plan your next visit. Until we meet again, please take care.

Very good hotel for the price of ± 1000 bath a day. Very clean and good Wifi in all rooms. It's a 3 minuts walk to the beach. A lot of restaurants around the hotel where you can eat for a cheap price. Next to the hotel is a supermarket where you can buy for a low price your special needs as drinks and food.

We stayed here with my family, and we are all really pleased. The rooms are super clean and neat, the bed is ultra-comfortable and the breakfast is filfulling. Only minus is that there is no pool but its good that the beach is near.
