“Get what you pay for, no cleaning, poor location and small room”
Reviewed 14 March 2011

The woman on reception was very friendly and helpful, however it all went downhill once we got into our room. After entering the room we noticed it was FULL of mosquitos, and we spent the first 2 hours trying to kill them all. We then couldnt close the window in the bathroom so had to use a towel to block the gap so no more would enter.

The room was small, with limited facilities. A wardrobe and a dated television was all we had (only place we stayed in Thailand without a dvd player). The bathroom was small with a poor shower. We didnt receive any clean towels all week, even after asking for some.

To get to the hotel you have to walk past the sewage works, which as you can imagine wasn't very pleasent.

All in all, I am a believer in you get what you pay for. This is a cheap place to stay, however it still wasn't worth the money we paid.

Having read a lot of terrible reviews about just about all budget hotels in Koh Phi Phi, we took the plunge and booked Phuttachot and crossed our fingers! We were greeted at the pier by our pick up guy (they carry your bags and you all follow him to the hotel). We walked passed the sewege garden that everyone had complained about and although it does smell a bit, it is NOWHERE near as bad as everyone makes out and should not put you off staying here! When we arrived, we were v pleasantly surpised by the room, it was v nice and clean and had a cute balcony...better than we expected.

It is slightly out of town (5 min walk), but this suited us as we wanted to stay away from the noise. Only problem was we had v noisy neighbours who talked on balcony until 5am and you can hear everything through the walls...

For good food on phi phi, go to the food market area near the pier, loads cheaper than the restaurants and food so much better there!

How this place is number 2 out of 30 is a mystery to me. The only good points about it is that they did have someone at the pier to collect us and walk us to the B&B, otherwise we wouldn't have found it through the maze of little streets. It's also not in a bad location as you can walk back into the centre in a few minutes although you do have to walk past the sewage treatment plant and it isn't well lit after dark.
The room wasn't great at all. The door was difficult to lock and very weak so I had to put something in front of it at night to make sure it stayed closed. Everything in the bathroom was dirty. There were stains on the bed and the bed itself was as hard as a rock and the pillow cases had holes from what looked like a mouse chewing on them. There were cats everywhere and they cried all night. The Walls were paper thin so you could hear people having a conversation in the next room.

Stayed for 4nights with my girlfiend. Room was very basic but for the price was fine (approx €15 for room per night!). ideal for backpackers on a budget. Don't expect much. We stayed 4 nights...room was never cleaned and there was rarley someone at reception (not that you would think it was areception area...more like a porch). Not signposted well at all and not very many people knew where it was....it's at waterhill tho....near a water waste location which smells really bad when walking past but not near enough to smell in your room. overall our stay was fine. We had a mosiquito net which helped us sleep a little easier....no safety deposit box but major plus was wifi in the room. Air con was pretty new and worked perfectly which is another positive. Location is a good 15/20 min walk from pier with backpacks and we did not get to avail of there taxi bag service either on arrival or departure...wasn't available!! overall fine if on a tight budget...was dying for a nice shower after departing tho and really can't see how it was marked as a hotel never mind a three star when we booked!

We had 4 nights here and all was good. You get a/c, large room, balcony with chairs and a fridge for very little money if you book on a deal like we did. The building has a large cabin feel as it is made almost entirely of wood. The staff are friendly and helpful. Although the hotel is not in the centre of the bars and resteraunts it is just a 5 min walk away, as is everything on phi phi!

There is a sewage works on the way to the hotel but this really is not an issue when choosing this hotel, you can smell it for about 30 seconds as you walk past and thats it.

The room will not get cleaned if you dont ask so remember to before you leave for your day on one of the amasing beaches on phi phi which are 2-3 mins walk away.

Time in my life I think I was tricked into something completely different from what I was told it was going to be. This “room”- no way it is a hotel- much less a resort, it is very close to a waste area- it smells horrible. When we walked in the room it was quite chocking. The bathroom was small, dirty, and way too run down. The sink was broken in half! The sink knob was so filthy. There is no shower curtain- expect to get the whole restroom and toilet wet while you shower.
We stayed here for four days and they never cleaned the room. We had to go to the reception everyday to get new towels. The floors get very dirty from beach use, but it stays dirty.
The worst are the bed bugs- my entire body is now filled with bumps from scratching it all night.
The AC cool to maybe 22 degrees – so it does not get very cold at night.
This hotel is far from everything, and the opposite side from anything on the island.
The price for westerns may see very little- but when you arrive here you see that is the average price for better hotels. The bed is so hard- my back hurst!
Stay away from this place unless they decide to upgrade their rooms.

I guess I am not the typical backpacker any more, since I am looking for a little more comfort during my travel.

The Phuttachot is an "inbetween" hotel - somewhere in the middle. It is not really cheap and it is definitely not comfortable...

I chose the hotel during my last trip since a lot of other accomodations have been fully booked and they were priced reasonable. Would not do that again, nor would I recommend the hotel.

Why?

Kho Phi Phi is a very beautiful island. This hotel though is in the only not so beautiful part of the island...you have to walk by a stinking sewage storage.
Rooms are quite ok, quite clean, quite comfy, but everything is only quite. For being average they are not cheap enough. There are way better options in both directions..cheap and more beautiful accomodation. That´s why I would not recommend this.

Stayed March 2010, travelled solo
