    Some may not like the distance, maybe a 10min walk to beach.. (we didn’t mind!) Scooters can be hired through the hotel for a very reasonable price and delivered to the door!

    Clean, comfortable, balcony with a view over rooftops to the sea, very friendly staff! Kodam Kitchen is just down the stairs next to the hotel and is a must visit for an excellent inexpensive dinner!

    Internet is not good, barely works in the lobby (no WiFi in rooms).

    Staff were great, very helpful & allowed us to keep our luggage at their property even though we had checked out. Fairly clean, large room and large double bed. Breakfast selection was okay. Location is good- few minutes walk away from Ao Nang beach/main roads with restaurants/bars/shops etc.

    The rooms were sort of clean but had a strong musky, mouldy smell and are quite aged. The air con unit was noisy so told staff and they fixed it, or tried to, with a bottle cap LOL. We had to place a rolled up towel in the casing to get a decent night sleep. Also the air filters on the air con were disgustingly dirty.

    The rooms were a great size. The breakfast was fresh and a good variety of fresh fruits, cerals and a ranged of cooked eggs and bacon. Staff were great and so friendly and happy to try and help.

    The whole experience was excellent. The hotel is in a more quiet part of Ao Nang, so it was perfect for our family. It's about 10 minutes walk to the longtail boat service & has mini-market & restaurants nearby. The room was huge and had good wi-fi. We received free complimentary water every day. Breakfast was very good, with some different choices every day and eggs made to order, and it was served on a beautiful balcony. Housekeeping was very attentive and always left us a small surprise every day. The whole staff was very helpful and welcoming.

    My wife particularly liked the large verander with sunbed as the beach was not appealing. The breakfasts were quite good but getting through to the egg chef was a challenge.

    Good value stay for 40 euros a night

    • Stayed 4 nights

    We had the first (i.e. second by European terms) floor room, and right next to the stairs leading up to our room was a staff room (I think it was the entrance to the kitchen and other staff facilities). Due to this there was loud noise in the morning already before 8 o'clock. One day we tried to sleep in, but then some staff were doing laundry right by the stairs and yelling quite loud. There was not much guests walk past our room since there was no long hallway, but any time someone walked by, you could hear every flap of a flipflop. So one thing that could definitely be improved is chaning the doors of the rooms and making sure that they are more sound proof. Also, the room was quite worn out - but that did not bother us much, because it was spacious and clean enough.

    The room was spacious and clean. The view from the balcony was great although we were on the "first" floor (i.e. second by European definition). The staff was friendly and the breakfast was good (they made eggs per request to ones choosing). The location of the hotel was quite good - it was about a 10 minute walk to AoNang beach, but there were lots of eateries and shops along the way. There was a grocery shop really close by and eateries all around. Also, fun fact - right next to the hotel are the most popular massage place (Massage Corner) and the most popular afforadable eatery (do not remember the name, but it's down the stairs right next to the entrance of the hotel). So in this sense the location was perfect - away from the noise of the main street, but everything You need right around the corner (literally).

    We got a room on the 3rd floor with no view and no Wifi. Old furniture - could use a coat of varnish, same as the walls. No hooks in the bathroom for towels or clothes, no shelf for soap in the shower, no shower curtain. Bad smell coming from the bathroom - they tried to mask it with a perfumed candle that made the air in the room actually more unpleasant (we opened the windows to air the room and it was better after). They should just use some stoppers or plugs for the sink and the shower drain. No fan in the bathroom and the door offers little privacy, as it has slats and does not close fully.

    Great breakfast, with made to order omelettes, fresh fruit (pineapple, bananas and watermellon), bacon, wings, toast, tomatoes and cucumber slices, yogurt, juice, milk, cereal, tea and coffee. Very friendly staff, although English is a hit and miss. Good comfy beds, good quality bedding and towels. Nice beach/pool towels. Very quiet room, good A/C.

    The breakfast could have been better: the team was weak, the bacon cold. The pool is oddly situated between two buildings, but beautiful.

    Hotel looked and seemed dated. Overall look & feel was not what you'd expect from the pictures. The room itself was clean but full of 'old dirt'. Don't know how to put it exactly. The tv was old and still a 4:3 resolution which resulted in cut off edges and the reception wasn't very good. I guess that the location wasn't for us either... Let's just say that we've gotten a heck lot more for the daily price.

    Breakfast was good and the staff very friendly and helpfull. The airco worked fine. The room seemed clean.
