You can’t really moan a ‘bout Karona!
We enjoyed our stay in this tired, three star hotel with a beach view. The beach was unswimmable because of rips and no lifeguards because it was low season. The hotel has seen better days but most things worked with the exception of wifi and hot water which took an eternity to come through. I only had cold showers as I couldn’t be bothered to wait for hot water. Wi fi was woeful. I had to sit on the balcony to get a weak signal and frequent drop outs. However, the place was clean and there is plenty of cheap eating nearby and staff are kind and nice but have limited language skills. Breakfast is a standard hotel buffet with cereal, fruit, bread and pastries and eggs done as you want was a great place to use as a base and cheap so you get what you pay for.

Great little place to stay staff friendly rooms clean only problem many stairs if you are put in top rooms as there are no lifts breakfast is buffet no bacon though meals overall are nice close to beach but definitely too many stairs for older people to climbp

Average hotel with great staff
We booked this Hotel near the beach. On the website it appeared to be well maintained and and a nice pool area. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. The breakfast wasnt bad. The bed was uncomfortable, old matress, and there is no elevator to the upper floors. The hotel is just run down. The pool needs maintenance as there are tiles coming loose. The service at the hotel is great, it's just older hotel and needs some remodel work. It rained for most of my stay, had there been sunny weather it would be easy to overlook the deficiencies of the hotel because the Beautiful Karon beach is next door.

Only a 2 Star Hotel
I am a regular visitor to Thailand and it was the first time l was asked to pay additionally for the use of the safe in the room. They do not supply beach towels after 5pm. Air Con was blowing to the ceiling and was not cooling the room. BEAWARE THERE IS NO LIFT, if you have got sore knees, you will regret getting the 4th Level Room

Good Location
Love the location of where the hotel is. Few mins to the beach, restaurant near by. Spacious room, into the wee hours of my 2nd night stay(last night stay) aircon in my room wasn't working well. Was too tired to inform since checking out in 2.5hrs time. Make it do and slept bck.

Expected more based on reviews
Hotel location was good but staff were for the most part bored and unfriendly. Reception staff were rude. This is a hotel for younger guests as five floors without elevators is not for the unfit. Additional charge for the in room safe was an unpleasant surprise. Lighting in the room was very poor so you needed a flashlight to read. Unable to move the umbrellas at the pool makes the chairs unusable for most of the day. On the plus side rooms are large and clean, and location is close to Karon Beach and about 20 min. From Kata Beach.

Mukava hotelli Karonilla
Mukava hotelli erittäin hyvällä sijainnilla. Aamupala maittava ja palvelu hyvä. Hotelli on rinteessä ja siinä ei ole hissiä. Sänky oli tosi kova muuten huone tilava ja siisti.
