Simplitel Hotel
Ranked #41 of 135 Hotels in Karon
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 16 April 2012

Advantages:
1. Location:
- only 5 minutes walk to Karon beach;
- a supermarket is located just 3 meters away from the hotel entrance (the same building);
- 10 meters from the entrance you can find at least three good restaurants:
-- Talay food (friendly staff, delicious food, good prices);
-- Red onion - a little bit crowdly but it worth it (good food & prices);
-- Veranda (I recommend it to russian tourists, there you can have native russian food as well as thai, mango cake is very the best ;).

2. Friendly staff: all our questions and requests were resolved in very short period. Additionally I want to thank all of hotel staff, thank you guys, you are the best!

3. Rooms:
- a big bed and enough place for luggage;
- balcony;
- free wifi (ask for login & password at the reception).

4. Fitness: having my previous travel experience I expected a "fitness corner" with a single bench and 2-4 dumbbells. Instead of this I found a nice fitness room equipped very well (training machines for all major muscle groups and cardio equipment). In case you're not a pro-bodybuilder you probably will be satisfied.

5. Breakfast: much better than standard "continental" breakfasts in most 3*** hotels in europe. Sausages, beacon, rice, noodles, potatos, fresh fruits. Nice.

Disadvantages:
1. Sometimes wifi connection speed is low (but it is not crucial).
2. Bed blanket could be larger ;)
3. Walls are not thick (but not thin as well). During 2 weeks we heard our neighbours only twice.

That's all.

Group of friends arrived from Singapore on the 7th April. Taxi drivers might not know the location of the fairly new Simplitel hence provide them with places like "the little mermaid restaurant". When you passed the roundabout just keep a look out for a FamilyMart of the left. If you arrive before the check-in time of 2pm you are able to leave baggage there and wander around. The entire street is littered with pharmacies, mini-marts, restaurants and pubs. Everything can be found at those minimarts and pharmacies, Everything! Beach is a 5min walk away however the better spots are down the beach on the left. Shopping can be done on the left or right of the roundabout, there is an area selling numerous cheap apparel and accessories on the left towards Kata beach about 7mins walk from the roundabout. Several tour agencies are along the street hence tour bookings are convenient especially with the hotel pickups. Tuktuks line the streets hence venturing beyond Karon is too convenient, remember to bargain, 300baht to Patong.
Amenities provided in the hotel are rather basic but sufficient. Kettle, safe, hairdryer all provided, there isnt a clothes line though. Room service is excellent and the overall hotel is really clean. Complementary breakfast is basic but offers a sufficient range to satisfy. Finally, staff service is just brilliant. Always smiling. Extremely helpful and meticulous.
Simplitel offers great value for money without sacrificing on quality. 100% Recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the hill side would offer a better view. There are no rooms facing the beach/seaside.

Big clean rooms, confortable huge (king size) bed, good pillows, excellent shower, silent air con, fast free internet access, safe box in the room, nice view, close to the beach - a good one! Many restaurant options, ATM, market just in front of your door. If you are the kind of person (like me) that prefers enjoying the beach instead of standing at the hotel in a swimming pool, this is the place to be. Breakfast is basic, but OK.

Room Tip: Higher floors (my room was 601) may be the best choice. No noise, nice view, possible to maintain cu...

Very good hotel! We had no problems here. Polite and kind personal, good cleaning and not far distance from the beach. They have no sweeming pool - we don't need it. But they have a personal garage - we used it every day for the bike we've rent. For us it was very good choice! We lived here for 10 days and took a big room "studio". Our balcony was looking at the main noisy street but we did not hear anything when the door are closed.

Room Tip: Read the notes that you'll get on the reception at your arrive - some questions will be solved.
