We statyed for 2nights and 1 day in this hotel in a superior (with breakfast ) room booked through www.agoda.com. Our room was on 4th floor overlooking main road and mountains.

Good Things : large , neat and clean rooms , courteous staff , Karon market nearby, Food was good.
Not so Good things : No kettle in the room , the receptionist during night shift was unable to understand English ( although the girls in the morning shift could communicate in english)

Karon beach is just 10 minutes walking distance from the hotel. If you like peaceful stay a little away from hustle bustle around the beach. This is an ideal place.

The hotel charges 800 Baht for transfer from airport to hotel.

Arrived here to find it's a bit further away from Karon Centre than we expected. It was a 15 min walk to the very very packed beach and the main road you have to walk along has no pavements so you have to traffic dodge all the way. The main road also suffered from very smelly drain so walking to eat, drink or beach was not pleasant.
The room was large, clean and basic and the a/c was old and very loud so we had difficulty sleeping. We did mention this to reception and they smiled but did nothing about it. The pics show a small outside garden but there is not one.
Breakfast was basic but ok.
Would I stay there again....No I think you could do better else where.

Karon Living Room staff were always helpful and willing to serve us. I liked the comfortable style of the central gathering rooms. The hotel room was a nice size and very comfortable. You might want to ask for a room that is not on the main road side as there is a bit more street noise. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the beach.

This review could be slightly biased as we disliked Phuket as a place! The hotel itself was situated 10-15 walk from the beach along a very busy road, which resembled Blackpool, flashing neon lights everywhere. Karon Living room was very basic and lacking any character which which we has been accustomed to around Thailand. If you are after a real 'Thai' vibe, my advice would be not to stay here it has no charm or atmosphere. The rooms were clean and spacious, with a decent tv but very overpriced for what you get. Wouldn't return to Phuket or Karon Living Room.

I stayed here for two nights and loved it! It was clean, it had hot water... what more can you ask for?! The location was a bit far, but really not a bad walk at ALL. Don't let that deter you.

The best part about this place is that my friend left her phone there and within minutes of us emailing, she responded letting us know she would ship the phone to our next destination... and she did! Not only that, she called the hostel and let them know a package was on its way! VERY rare to find someone so willing to go out of their way for a stranger. I loved my stay here and would recommend it to anyone.

My 8-yr old and I stayed for a week in this clean, well-kept, hospitable accommodation. The desk staff is helpful, kind, and professional. The lobby is well-lit and pleasant. Rooms are clean, bright, spacious, air-conditioned. Soap and shampoo are provided.
Walk to the beach (great swimming) takes 10 minutes and this is when you get to check out the village. The temple is near-by, 2 minute walk; market is Tues. and Sat., 4-9.
Beach towels, boogie-boards, beach toys are provided, no charge, for borrowing. Scooters rentals on the premises are 200 thb a day. Tickets for activities etc, and car hire, is done through the front desk - extremely efficient and easy. We found our driver, "S", this way.
Internet is in the lobby, as is food & beverages.
The price is great too, especially considering the cleanliness and amenities and management. We stayed somewhere else too that cost more, offered less, and just wasn't as well run - funny how it's the little things we take for granted and then really miss when they aren't around.

Overall, a great, affordable place to stay especially if you are new to Phuket/ Thailand.

The staff were very helpful and willing to help with anything information. The rooms were very spacious and very clean. We really enjoyed our stay there. In general, Karon is quieter than patong and so this hotel is located in a quieter area and most places close around 11 or 12am. if you are looking for a vibier nightlife, then patong is a 10min ride by scooter from here.
