Well priced comfortable stay in Karon
Comfortable place stay with out many frills and reasonably priced. Centrally located and very close to the beach. Did not find the staff very friendly, however they attended to requests efficiently. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. Had a large pool that I did not use as I preferred to swim in the sea. I would exclude the breakfast in the booking as it was not great and there are plenty of cafes nearby for breakfast

Poor 2,0
big failure
the hotel has an awesome location as it is 3 min away from the beach besides that this hotel needs A LOT of improvement. Our air conditioner didn't work since they gave us the room. the cealing of the room was full of filtrations and the shower didn't drained and as no body speaks english it was mission impossible to have someone to fix it instead we used twizzers to take the bathtub plugged and be able to shower. Beds in thailand are usually hard but the pillows were more like rocks. They never cleaned the bathroom hardly they did the bed. Most of the times we also had to ask them to clean the room because they would usually not do it. There is a HUGE rat that seems to live in the lobby!! and you can see it crossing from the lobby to where the fountains are multiple times in the day. I don't know how are the other rooms but we never had interner in the room. The only area were the wifi works is at the lobby.
