“Good location, clean, but noisy”
Reviewed 16 September 2011

The Arina Residence is located pretty much in the centre of Chaweng Beach Road. It's a great location and it's actually on a small soi next to a couple of other guesthouses. Everything in Chaweng is easily accesible from this hotel/guesthouse. The place is run by a Thai family and from my experience, they were extremely helpful and welcoming. The rooms are a good size and include a wet room shower. It was actually quite a noisy place to stay, even though it was slight off the main beach road. Next door is a Thai club called Ezze, which doesn't seem to have any sort of closing time! The only problem with my room was the smell - which I don't believe was anything to do with the hotel, but the drains and now and again it was actually pretty horrible. Breakfast is good, although a little basic. Honestly, I cant imagine many places on chaweng road being much better than this place. However, if you want to stay a little further from the main road, then I'm sure you can find better places for the same kind of price. If location means a lot to you, then yes, I'd go for Arina, but if you're willing to walk 5 - 10 minutes to get the main beach road of Chaweng, then I'd say stay elsewhere.

Room Tip: If you want a balcony, then you'll have to go for the more expensive rooms. If not, then the oth...

My boyfriend and i are stayed here only few nights ago whilst traveling around thailand...on check in the manager who is a middle aged woman seemed very friendly and welcoming, her son who helps with the bags etc is extremely lovely and very very welcoming. To be honest i have to say that the rooms are lovely and reasonably cheap considering the area that your staying in but DO NOT CROSS THE MANAGER, shes a lunatic. My boyfirend and i had hierd a bike for the day during our two day stay, upon check out (we had told her that we had one hour to get to our boat) she asked me for an extra 300 BHT for the second day use of the bike, i explained that we did not use the bike and said that the bike had been outside the whole day, she said that shed seen the bike and we had not used it but still demanded the money i refused to pay and she went crazy acting like a toddler having a tantrum jumping up and down screaming calling my boyfriend and i evil bad people...i had to leave as i didnt want to get into an arguement she then refused to give my boyfriend back his passport, placing it in her back pocket and threatening to call the police even when my boyfirned had given her the money dispite not having used the bike in the first place...she would not accept it until i had come back into the hotel, apologised for nothing and told her that she was right we are very bad people etc etc...i have never in my life seen a grown woman act that way, we were so dissapointed at the immaturity of this lady, someone like her should not be running a hotel, i would not stay there as they obviously try to swindle money out of you and i'd worry that if you said the wrong thing she would just blow up in your face...terrible.
