Reviewed 6 September 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for one night whilst in Koh Samui and were disappointed.
When we booked it said we'd have a kettle, DVD player and balcony of which we had neither.
The tv remote didn't work either and we were the only residents on the top floor, therefor the staff left all the other rooms doors and windows open so it was boiling inside.
This lead to a giant spider being in the hallway in the evening!
I complained to the woman at reception about not having the things in the room it stayed and she said they used to have them!!
When I told her this didn't help us she just laughed!
We left the next morning to stay somewhere else!!
Avoid this place!

positive:
affordable, big room, various accommodation at the road side, 5 minutes walk to Chaweng Beach, clean room and fast internet.

point to improve:
need an electric kettle in each room, telephone not functioning, need to take off your shoes outside so need to bring your shoes in and out, water pressure in bathroom is low.

We stayed for 3 weeks in Chaweng in April/May 2013 and we opted for Arina after looking around at various accommodations near the beach. We stayed in a clean, good-sized room with aircon, fridge, TV, large balcony for 600 Baht/night (discounted from 800 for staying for 18 days).

The staff are friendly and helpful, we got advise on the main tourist attractions of Koh Samui and the cleaner always says hello and asks if we need the room cleaning.

Arina is located on a quiet side street off of the main high street through Chaweng. The beach is very close, only 2 or 3 minutes walking. If Arina is full there are a few similar hotels along the same street.

Found this place through a little help by a local Thai guy. So thanks to him. Hotel was clean, spacious,and staff were lovely. Rooms were lovely and clean. I needed to make a call to the UK and couldn't find a pay phone. The receptionist guy let me use his mobile phone to do so. The staff were more than helpful and just so happy to help, at any cost.

Room Tip: All rooms has air con comfy clean bed. Outside balcony, very small.

We stayed at the Arina Boutique Residence in August 2011. It is a very good standard and well priced in comparison to other places in the area. When we arrived, the owner immediately offered us a better room with a balcony. It was very clean and comfortable. We were going to stay for a couple of nights and ended up staying for two weeks. It is family run and the owners were lovely. They were extremely friendly and helpful. On one occasion, we came down too late for breakfast and they made us one anyway. The breakfast was great and would set us up for the day. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend this hotel to anyone. I don’t think that you will be disappointed.

Room Tip: The rooms on the first floor at the front with a balcony were good.

I stayed at Arina in March 2012. The hotel is a small family-run residence in a quiet corner of the Chaweng beach. It is near to many restaurants, banks, shops and other services. Actually, it is in front of the Fuji restaurant which is one of the best in Samui.

The quality-price ratio is great. The hotel is very clean and well managed. The staff is friendly and hospitable, always ready to help with anything you need. Breakfast is included and plentiful. It is across the road from the beach. Will stay again, and recommend to friends.

We arrived from our long flight straight to Samui, the hotel was clean, quiet and had a huge comfy bed. The bathroom wasn't great to be honest, clean enough but could do with updating for the cost! Service - the family were very friendly and helpful. I would recommend it for a few nights!

Room Tip: We stayed on a higher floor, was quiet and with air con!
