Nice comfortable service. Small rooms upstairs to a bar. I can’t knock the place but just know what you’re getting into; a room near the loud streets. We ended up checking out on the first night for a room high above the loud streets

Cheap hotel inside of bar
For about $10 a night, don’t expect too much. Walk through a bar to get to the reception. The rooms are on the second floor. Shower and toilet share the same space. Less than 10 minute walk to Kata Beach. The room seemed clean enough for the price.

Amazing budget option
We stayed here for 4 nights and were really happy. The room was one of the cleanest we’ve stayed in throughout Thailand, and I don’t think we saw a single insect or ant once, which again is rare in Thailand. The room had good AC, good Wi-fi and a fridge as well as being a decent size. The location is also perfect, right in the heart of shops and restaurants and only a 10 minute stroll to the beach, but just off the Main Street so nice and quiet. Would certainly stay here again

False and deceitfully advertised
This hotel advertises that it has a pool and free parking. There is NO POOL! There are even photos of the pool which doesn't exist. Some of the other photos are not of the hotel either. My wife and I booked partly because we thought there was a pool. There is also no free parking or any parking at all unless you park on the street. Other than that the hotel's location is great, 5 minute walk to the beach and lots of places to eat and drink nearby. The rooms are small and scream to be renovated but seem to be good value for the money and location. The hotel also rents motor bikes but overcharges for them. Just walk 50 feet up the street or around the corner and you can rent cheaper. We stayed 3 nights and enjoyed it, mostly because of the location, but if you book just beware some of the photos of the hotel are not of the same hotel and there is NO POOL.

Good for this price level
I'm happy with the stay, for this price (around 650b/night) as many other hotels in good areas for this price can be bad. But some things can be better like cleaning, no fans in the toilet = nothing dries, strange smell in the room, really old bed (still not that bad) and the pool is 5-10 min walk away.

Paradise Inn - Great Location
Room was comfortable and clean. Staff very nice and they spoke enough enough English so communication wasn’t a problem and they taught me a few words in Thai. The Internet was reliable and there anything wrong with the speed. The hotels serves good food at a very reasonable price and the relocation is great and next to 3 restaurant that provide live music. There are several night markets selling good food and misalliance items. Kata and Karon beach are within a 15 minute walking distance. The hotel rents motor scooters but be aware if you are planning to park in front of hotel you have to move the scooter from one side of the street to the other each night or receive a 500 Bhat parking ticket, I did.

Как дома
Отличный бюджетный вариант проживания. Это реально очень дешево. Ежедневная уборка присутствовала, воду в номер давали каждый день. Кондиционер и холодильник морозят сильно. Места в номере достаточно. За время проживания ничего не пропало, хотя в сейф убирали не все и не всегда. Из минусов - муравьи и пыль в углах. Нам это было это не принципиально, в номере только спали. В первую ночь напротив номера шумела кафешка, в берушах этот вопрос был решен.

Man får hvad man betaler for
Beskidt og brugt. Man får hvad man betaler for. Og det er ikke altid det værd. Vores toilet var i stykker dvs. der var lort op til kanten af toilettet. Fik nyt værelse. Det var bedre, men bestemt kun hvad man betaler for. Service er der ikke det store af. Smil og grin eksisterer ikke, virker mere som et træls job for dem at have gæster. Beliggenheden er skøn :)
