I stayed for 2 nights in the pool facing rooms. Prime location with just 5 mins walk from karon beach and 1 min from Patak Road, lots of eateries and massage options nearby. The restaurant operates only for breakfast. For dinner, we picked up food from restaurants on the main road. Breakfast spread was great. Local taxi to beaches available... More

The images online make this hotel look like a peaceful artist themed boutique... Unfortunately it's nothing close to this. The room was messy, walls, floors and services all marked, stained or unpresentable. Simple things like toothpaste and soap marks on the vanity unit and bath and dirty marked walls. The bathroom looked like none of the surfaces had been cleaned.... More

Be careful, it is not like the photos you see online. Very old building with plumbing problems. Water pressure at fourth floor is very low, impossible to take shower. When I raised this issue, staff tried to convince me that it is normal. They advised me to wait for the water. When I insist, they showed me a room in... More

Not sure the type of room that we got but it was not the pool view or the typical deluxe room. Nonetheless, the room that we got was pretty cool. No balcony but it was redeemed with a spacious sititng area with fan, separating the room and the bathroom (also a sliding window to get a whif of fresh air).... More

Great location in the heart of Karon and a good price. The first room they tried to put me in was very noisey (room fan plus some kind of pump immediately outside of window) and very small - a meter either side of bed.
