Dirty Water”
Dirty water from the lake is used for the shower and sink. Fill a water bottle from shower and take a look. Bad! You can get really sick.

Not ideal”
When I booked the cheapest room I was expecting inhospitable conditions, but didn't expect the room to be unliveable. Initially they gave me the room A3 which had a laundry room attached that was filled with mould and with no air vent to let the mould out. That night was torture and the air was unbreathable. The following morning they agreed to change my room but were pushing for me to pay extra. I told them I don't need AC since it's not that hot in October, I don't care about twin bed/double bed. I just want a decent room for that money (not the cheapest room you can find in Koh Samed by far). The rest of the stay was better but I'm pretty sure the bed had bed bugs or some crawly insects because I've got disgusting swollen bites all over my body like I've never had before in my life! Had to go to the pharmacy to get a cream as the itch was unbereable. So if u go there, better bring along clean sheets and be sure you can handle the smell before the night's sleep.

An horrible smell in the room”
The room was really stinky, horrible, almost impossible to sleep. A smell of sewer. Maybe we were not lucky and this is not their fault, but you can't give a room to the customers when it stinks like this. Furthermore, the air conditioning was not working ...

Engelska?”
I have rarely been so pissed !, to spend 15-20 minutes to explain that you want a towel but get a soap, twice in two days is Requested to pay, though I found the receipt that I paid through Agoda, that eventually led him to believe I want to speak to the manager and she also speaks only Thai, no, unless you have a strong mind and a lot of time, choose another hotel !!

Decent hotel if you dont expect anything”
lesser number of rooms, Close to the main road and beach, close to some cafes
Would recommend this hotel only if you do not expect a lot. The rooms were clean , however the bathroom could have been better equipped with soaps etc. The geyser wasn't working. The staff was polite, language however was big barrier. There are a lot of start dogs right in front of the hotel , so if one is planning to get back late in the night, one needs to ensure that you dont run over the dogs or get bitten. It wasn't worth the price i paid for it at all, however due to year end madness can't complaint too much on the price point.

The worst hotel ever in my life”
Cheap, air con.
I stayed there alone for 1 night, unfortunately it was my worst experience ever in my life particularly with the staff at the reception desk who looked like a tomboy was unhelpful and tried to cheat me by asking for a room key deposit of 500 bahts. Unluckily, i gave her that deposit and forgot to ask about the receipt, then when checking out i asked about getting the deposit back but she said she never asked any deposit from customers. We argued for a while and finally i told her that if i did not get my money back i would call the police so she gave it back. Another bad i got was the air con, it did not work properly and not cool enough so i had to check and clean the filter inside by myself, then the problem was fixed. In conclusion, avoid staying there !!!

horrible guest house (it's not a hotel)”
I had a horrible experience with this hotel, booked for 3 nights, double bed with air con. But air con was not even sufficient for that smaller size room. I had spent 2 nights in unpleasant room temperature and finally I had to ask for a fan for 3rd night. My room was on 4th floor (top floor) and it's more hotter in the day time. And above that, on the 3rd night there was no water in bathroom, and got replied that there was some fault with water tank and it's took almost 2 hours to get repaired. So we couldn't took a evening bath after returning from the beach. Horrible! And even more worst that again there was no water in bathroom in mid night and around 1.30am hotel manager cell phone as there is no reception staff available after 6pm. So we couldn't used toilet for whole night and use our bottled drinking water to wash hand. only got relief on next morning. Even the location is not good as it's just situated in front of a filthy narrow lane which is full of sewage mud and your taxi can't go inside to the lane. I would recommend to look hotels near the beach not in the city as there is not much option and not so good. Better just visit this beautiful island and look for hotel once you reach there.

we enjoyed staying outside tourists spots and being with the local people not far from shops and beach
Our stay was very pleasant although the room was too hot. We had a fan room since we do not want air conditioning but the sun was in the room all day long

Terrible. The sewer smell goes into the room and it really stinks bad. The room is 2 doors from the front desk and people come and go 24 hours. No tv for English people. No English speaking people. Very bad dont stay here. Too much money for bad service and room. There are many better places. This place is for Thai only

I was at Ban Rak Samed for 3 nights and everything went well. The staffs were friendly and attentive. You can be at the beach in 5-10 minutes walk and the 7-11 is not too far. I'd recommend this hotel to any backpackers who look for affordable price with a good quality.
