Me and my partner stayed here before we left for Koh Samui. After reading all the reviews I was a bit paranoid. But we had booked online and couldn't cancel. Never the less, we arrived safely. We got welcomed by a very friendly face, who explained that she is aware that we had paid online but she would like to...

Stayed here 2 weeks ago, and had money stolen from our bags in our room. We didnt realize the money was gone until we left the hotel the next day. When we rang and emailed the hotel informing them of this, they accused us of lying and trying to make financial gain from the hotel. They intimidated us and threated...

Firstly, no elevators and a million of stairs everywhere. Making the whole stay nothing but unpleasant. And dirty. The water housekeeping uses to mop floors are black. The shower are overflowing the whole bathroom due to dirty clogged draines turning the whole bathroom into a small ocean. The tap on sink is leaking water also making a pond on the...

First the hotel is nothing like you see it in their advertised pictures. It will shock you once you arrive. Secondly they keep 2000 Bhat deposit which isn't mentioned on Booking.com so inspect the room carefully right when you check in. Biggest part they don't tell is that there is NO ELEVATORS & if you're pregnant or have issues walking...

Was a bit hesitant in staying here based on other "mixed reviews". I stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment that is meant for 4 people. Shared the apartment with a friend. Good sized apartment on the first floor. Very clean and facilities worked fine. First floor was good but as stated by others view of beach obscured by power lines...

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!!!!! We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of October and had $850 AUD (roughly 22,000 baht) stolen from our room by the 'cleaners' that had keys to our room. When we were in the room, after it had been cleaned, people tried to enter the room 3 or 4 times throughout the...

Loved the location, right on Patong beach and 10minutes walk from Bangla Road where all the nightlife happens. Room was clean and the bathroom tidy. Safe was secure. Umbrellas in wardrobe to use which was great. Only downfalls is 1. The maids wrote and charged us for a broken glass which we never broke. We eventually had it let go...

Affordable hotel that is just a stone's throw away from patong beach. The room is kept clean daily and has a balcony facing the sea. Toilet is huge too with a bathtub. For just 1000+ thai baht per night, more than worth your $. Others to note: Mr yoon from the nearby excursion counter can give very attractive rates for...

My stay was with them over a year ago so keep that in mind: Tremendous deal for the price! I can't see how anyone wouldn't like this place. They say a place is its people, and that's what really made this place awesome for me. Giorgio was immediately responsive to my Air bnb messages, as was the Front Hotel staff...

We stayed there for 2 nights. Is better to ask before your arrival for a higher floor room because the views are better. The room is comfy, you have a safe box as well so you can keep your important things there. Also there is a jacuzzi where you can relax. The location is great! Just in front of the...
