“Value for money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

Hotel is located in a very central area of Chaweng, and the staff were lovely and very happy to help. The room was simple but very clean and we were given fresh bottled water everyday, however the view was of the back of the restaurant 'bongo's' next door, so not amazing. However I would recommend Bongo's for breakfast!

Only downside is if you are around just before the full moon party, the green mango club turns its music up to full blast for the influx of travellers who descend on Koh Samui before the party. It is impossible to sleep, even if you are on the furthest side of the hotel. Fortunately this only lasted for 1 night!

Overall this hotel is well worth the money you pay and I would be more than happy to go back there.

Room Tip: Rooms on back right don't have a great view, but will be quieter if there is a full moon party w...

Stayed here on Dec 2011 on new years eve. We couldn't find any other place as we were late in booking hotels. Its a complete budget hotel. Spacious rooms with a balcony. Bathroom was ok. Service wasn't satisfactory. They provided us a room with a double bed where as we clearly mentioned two single beds through agoda. They gave us some discount though for their mistake! If i remember correctly, beach is about 15mins walk from the hotel.

For the price, there is no complains. Its a little bit of a walk if you go around the road to Chaweng beach but nearer through Soi Mango or whatever thats called. The balcony door could not be shut completely or locked. A bit of a security issue but I got over it pretty easily with the help of many chilled beers. I just slept off! Staff were nice enough. I needed to sleep there only for the night before my early morning ferry to Ko Tao. Chaweng is busy. Very busy. Its a typical Pattaya, Phuket, Krabi sort of scene with tailor shops and expensive seafood restaurants. Even the Mcdonald burger were premium prices. This place is average for the budget minded.

The room was clean and away from the main road so I didn't hear much noise. Left hotel after one night because their credit card machine didn't work. I understand that cash is the way to go in Thailand but when you are booking 6 nights I'd rather use a card.

We stayed here for 4 nights on our trip to Bangkok and have nothing to complain about at all. The location is just 5min walk away from the nightlife and Green Mango Club.

The beach and Ark bar is about a 10minute walk from the hotel.

The rooms were very clean and reasonably priced with A/C (Some of the quietest A/C we had used on our travelling). Each room has a good sized balcony - although best to stay in a room on the front of the hotel.

Adjacent supermarket catered to almost all needs included the cheap pre drinks before a night out.

You can hear the sounds of The Green Mango Club until to the early hours which normally wouldn't bother me as I'm in there, but the music was so repetitive that even Flo-rida himself would start to hate his own songs!

It would be nice if more travellers stayed here to meet but Koh Samui seemed more of the Australian/Israeli party holiday destination. If you're looking for the travelling experience, it's probably best to avoid Chaweng.

I came here after partying all night, at 3 am in the morning, with a girl. No problem.
The room was 500 TBH and you need to deposit 500 TBH as well, in case you loose your key or smth. When you check out you get your money back.
Only stayed here for one night.

I´ve stayed here a few times with my girlfriend during the last couple of years.
The rooms have a very clean and bright feel to them, with big windows and nice floors(no disgusting old carpet).
I´ve always stayed in the cheaper rooms, and they have all been equiped with refrigerator, closets, bed-side tables, TV etc.
The staff is friendly, and you can easily arrange a variety of different trips at the reception, as well as renting a motorcycle.
It takes about 2 minute to get to the main Chaweng road where all the action takes place. This is a good thing, but also the only complaint that i have about this hotel.
If you have a room close to the road, you will be kept up until 2-3 am because of the nightclub Green Mango.
Their music is really loud, and you will have a hard time going to sleep early, even when using earplugs.
Other than that, i would really recommend this place.
If you plan to party all night, just grab whatever room they have and go have fun. If you don´t plan to stay up late, get a room away from the street and sleep tight.

Room Tip: Pick a room away from the road if you don´t plan to be up partying all night.
