“Good accomodation for koh phi phi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

We came to koh phi phi with friends and in comparison to the rooms they had in different hotels the room was very good. I got the feeling that due to all the young travellers on koh phi phi the standard of hotels are not generally up to much and a lot more expensive than other part of Thailand. That said if you are looking for a clean room that's not the size of a box room then this place is good. Much better standard than a lot of places (as you can see by the reviews) and not directly in the centre where all the clubs are. (Although you CAN hear the music all night which other reviews said you can't, but the island is pretty small so to be expected)
The hotel has a pool but while we were there it never got any sun.

I think this place is pretty new but I'd have to only rate it as average. Lots of little things annoyed me like the terrible lighting in the room which is mainly orange, bathroom light by the mirror was useless making it difficult for my girlfriend to apply her makeup. The curtains were an effort to draw and open because of the curtain hooks chosen. The sink made gurgling noises all the time. The place is located quite near to the party beach which pumps out music until 4am so sleeping was a challenge when sober... However a problem with most places in the centre of phi phi I imagine.

It is clean however and has a pool, if only small with little space around it, and the staff were lovely.

The view from our room was stunning. We had 2 nights here. There was some building work but it really didn't interfere with our time there. Staff were really friendly. We never used the pool and the pictures made it look a lot better than it was. A very pleasant stay

Room Tip: Buy a good insect repellant!

We stayed in this hotel for a day in Dec 2013 (around christmas). The Hotel is at a walkable distance from/ to the ferry pier. The hotel has no in-house restaurant. However, there are plenty of food options (suiting all budgets) around the hotel. One irritating thing about the hotel was their insistence to remove the footwear on entering the hotel, which means you need to carry your footwear to your room. Same when you want to come out. The hotel has a swimming pool. The room is quite small for the price you pay. However the interiors were good. Wifi is complimentary and the hotel provides 2 complimentary bottles of water every day. There are a lot of budget hotels/ dormitaries available around. So, if you are on a shoestring budget, my recommendation would be to avoid this hotel.

The hotel was average and staffs were not so helpful. I think they always get the booking as there is not so much place to stay in phi phi island. So, they dont care about their guests. There was a notice in the bathroom that, if someone throws tissue paper to toilet bowl he/she will be fined by 2000 baht. It was so stupid. Don't have enough service for the price they are charging.

We stayed here for 4 days recently and would definitely recommend it. Cheap, based close to both beeches and the pier and also most bars and restaurants but just far enough away to be quiet when you want to go to bed. Room was basic but very clean (staff seemed to be cleaning something in the hotel all day) and everything worked. Get the deluxe room with pool access as you have a gate off your balcony straight to the pool. No bar or anything but staff friendly etc. air con was Ice cold as well. Only downside is that you have to walk through where they're selling food to restaurants by the side of the road but not a big deal.

Having read some of he views we we're a little sceptical, however we never needed to worry.

This hotel is well located in so far as it is close enough to the beach, bars and restaurants while still be in a quiet area. We found the staff very friendly and courteous. Our room was very clean and the bedding and towels we changed daily. The room had a safe, fridge and they provided two bottles of water each day.

There is a laundry right opposite charging 40baht per kg and they only took 4 hours.

I would recommend this hotel and pleased I went with our reviews, we are a 50 year old couple and stay in places from huts to hotels and is one of he nicer ones we have stayed in.
