We stayed in two different room types. A small one and a smaller one. One with TV, one without TV. One for 1.400 Baht, one for 500 Baht. I really reccomend the smaller one, because we didn´t need the TV and the difference between the two room types is not sooooo big. You should not expect that there is a... More

The moment I've arrive a non English speaking person handles me the phone. It was the owner explaining me that they needed to send me to another hotel because they... More

We took a 400 Baht room, fair enough. Very small, no table, fan only, toilet not up to standard, cold water shower. Food a bit expensive. On the other hand there is a nice pool and a friendly reception.

We had an amazing experience staying here, We were skeptical of Koh Samui because of the main beach / area of the island was heavily populated and crowded. Phalarn inn was off the beaten track, but offered us everything we needed. Amazing food, Pleasant staff, affordable accomodation and even scooter rentals right at the resort! I'd highly recommend this place... More

Having arrived in Samui at Lamai beach, my girlfriend and I were hugely disappointed by the crowded, touristy nature of the area. Therefore, arriving in Mae Nam at the Phalarn Inn was a brilliant relief. The hotel was down off the main road, set just off a smaller, quiet road filled with various nice looking little restaurants and coffee shops.... More
