I was quite happy with my stay in this hotel. Yes, the stairs were demanding - I had to take a shower every time I reached the room, but for my part, it was totally worth it. The view from our room was awesome, and the room was nice and clean. I wasn't very bothered by the music from bars etc, but I can imagine that some people may be. We were also visited by monkeys, the were a little aggressive, but it was fun seing them!
Staff was nice, and breakfast too.

Charge you more than they state in the prices. Cockroaches everywhere. No hot water. Up loads of steps to get to hotel. No continental breakfast. Rooms are awful, covered in damp and not finished!
Do yourself a big favour and avoid this hole!!!

I run marathons, and those steps are awful.

Bathroom filthy with bare concrete Walls.

Hard to communicte with reception, little English spoken.

Could here music blasting out all night. It's right by the major party part. Very far from
Pier!

Breakfast is fine.

Nice views, and staff do try to help but for the price if this hotel, there are much better places out there.

Having read the reviews, I was prepared for some 'exercice' to get to my room.
And indeed... I'm 32, run about 20K a week, cycle and play football. Well, after 3 nights in the hotel, I was cursing those stairs.
Because you do have to come back to your hotel a couple of times minimum a day, it gets so physically demanding that you will put everything you can in your bag not to have to come back to it.
Yes, once up there the view is amazing. But you would only do it once, not 3 times a day.
Shame because the hotel was nice and the staff good.
Between that and no stay in phi phi, i'd still prefer to come. But I wish I took a hotel in the village.

Our rating is based on the hotel being on Phi Phi. Compared with hotels in other destinations then they would all be lower.

Phi Phi is a very picturesque island and is very lively over New Year as we expected. Due to being very busy we booked in advance as there weren't many good rooms available.

We chose to go mid-range price wise over New Year. A lot of hotels doubled their prices over that period. It still was expensive at around 85GBP per night but we wanted to be there so were happy to pay.

The hotel is a hike up towards the viewpoint as other reviews have said so we weren't surprised by this. Although it is hard going it was worth it for the view from the balcony. (260 steps to our room at the very top). We decided to stay up there as we thought it might be quieter for whenever we chose to go to bed, but the noise from the beach bars amplified itself towards the hotel. Not a problem if you want to stay up until 4am (which was a typical quiet time) as we did on NYE. :-)

Generally the accommodation on Phi Phi is aimed at backpackers (or the very rich). The rooms at this hotel are bungalows on stilts on the hillside. For the island the quality was good however in comparison with other locations we visited, it was average. The bathroom is a little odd as it was plastered but not properly painted or tiled and you have to close the blind between the bathroom and the bedroom.

An excellent part of the service is the guys who meet every ferry and will trolley your bags through the town and then carry them (2 or 3 at a time) up the stairs, and will deliver them to the ferry when you leave. Worth a generous tip!

If you are going for the destination, want a good base with standard amenities (tv/fridge/safe etc), and don't mind some exercise, then this is a good option.

The hotel is located up on the hill on the way to view points.
The room was really comfortable and modern with terrace.
The reception woman was very nice.
The breakfast included was quite standard.
The view points are very close, about 5 mints to the 1st one. The beach is a little far, about 10-15 mints walk, the same distance to the pier. Well, if you are young and not that lazy it will be ok.
The hotel porter will pick your luggage at the pier.
