Great hotel right on the best beach”
The Jirawan is a no frills hotel right on Sai Kaew beach. The rooms are simple, but adequate, and overall the hotel was surprisingly quiet. The breakfast is pretty good and you can choose made-to-order items right off the regular menu. The restaurant is directly in front to the hotel and lunch and dinner there is very good. Meals are especially enjoyable sitting right on the beach in the evenings. The location is very convenient, being situated right on the beach, yet only about a 5-minute walk into town, where there are other restaurants and shops. I would highly recommend the Jirawan to the budget-conscious traveller.
Kho Samet is PARADISE”
Very nice budget hotel Kho samet is wonderful and the hotel is on a beautiful beach. I am an Aussie living in Thailand with a Thai wife, we both love Kho Samet. Still a great class of people both Thai and farang go there unlike Kho Samui but still the fun pubs etc with out the hassle or drunks. Don't wait GO NOW as I am sure Kho Samet will change to a Kho Samui in the future. PARADISE!!!!!
Perfect location at the beach”
Jirawan is right on the lively beach and also close to street with shops and 7/11. First I only booked one night because of the reviews which said the rooms were not clean. But fortunately the room was clean. The room is spacious but basic, but you're on the beach and you have all you need. Ofcourse I booked a few nights extra at Jirawan.
clean budget hotel”
the hotel is a walking distance to the little village on the island. On the beach front, with ample beach chairs and lots of sun. The room is of moderate size with a good size air conditioner and a large fridge. The bathroom is large but needs renovation. Our room price included free breakfast (American breakfast: 2 eggs, jam, bread, coffee or tea).
Does the job”
This was our second time staying here at the Jirawan. First time it was just the two of us. This time we brought our daughter, two family members and two friends. The hotel itself is fine. It's nothing fancy by any means but it's right on the beach and the food is tasty. It has a good night time atmosphere too. We asked for an extra bed for our 8 year old in our room. The spring bed was broken so we had to make do with the mattress on the floor, which she was quite happy with because she felt like she was camping out!
Great location, basic hotel”
Good: location, considering Koh Samet prices value for money ok Average : pretty much all staff member not really happy and actually quite grumpy which is unusual for Thailand on such a level, except one young guy who was very helpful and good customer service, he is actually the reason why our rating is not a lot lower. Breakfast (ours was included) well below average and would recommend to get your food somewhere else. Apart from that we loved the view from our balcony and being right at the beach.
Excellent location in the middle of Sai Kaew beach”
I stayed here for two nights, and could only recommend the place. I have been to this island many times, but this is the friendliest staff I have ever seen. The hotel has a beach restaurant with a nice view, and after food you can take your coffee or drink on the beach, still the same staff serving. Rooms are what you will get on an island, not luxurious but clean. The service staff is very well trained and attentive, my compliments to the owner who is actually there all day.
simply the best place to stay on co samed”
i realy picked well and hit the jackpot this time best beach clean white sand most of the island action is accesible on foot from here many bars resteraunts and clubs with georgeous staff.good clean room totally tiled easy to maintain everything worked nothing faulty freindly live in owner/manager food of the best flavour and presented well what else can i say simply the best.
Nice location ”
This hotel is right on the si keaw beach, room was fine besides having an ant problem in the bathroom and bed couldn't work out where they were coming from. Breakfast was good had a full menu to chose from. This is the 3rd time I've stayed on koh samet and one thing that always surprises me about the place is the lack of typical Thai friendliness I don't know if it's because they don't have to really work hard or maybe because a lot of staff are from Myanmar I really don't know but it's not the usual Thai friendly customer service you experience everywhere else. Koh samet is not a cheap place when you compare it with Bangkok, Pattaya or Phuket. The bed was very hard like sleeping on cement. I would stay here again but I don't plan to return to samet again in the future as 3 visits is more than enough. I would look at another hotel before staying here again. The further away from the beach the cheaper everything becomes.
Nice hotel but a bit expensive”
Had a good stay at the Jirawan hotel. Has a very good location right near the beach. Although we noticed that similar neighbouring hotels were cheaper than whet we had paid for Jirawan hotel.
Decent hotel right on the beach”
Not many amenities here. Room was clean and decent size, shower and bathroom were clean. Right on the beach, hotel has beach chairs for guests. Most hotels away from beach do not. New air-condition unit with remote control was handy. Worked well. Breakfast is ok, simple rice, eggs, veggie broth soup. Coffee was instant. Had to ask for milk and they brought it. No elevator, so had to walk up 3 floors to room. Overall a good budget hotel.
Not bad for a big group of friends!”
Not bad, our group of 10 teenagers went and fit into 2 family sea view rooms, the bath/shower room was pretty small and can get dirty easily because of the sand when we finished playing at the beach. Breakfast (American) was a little better than we expected, they let you choose a simple set from a menu of a few choices. We were very loud and had huge speakers playing throughout the night and morning and nobody complained which was very nice. Overall not bad, not prestigious at all but good price for a group of young people just finding a place to stay for the night!
It's good hotel for sleep, but not for romance purpose, It suites people who wanna enjoy the beach not hotel itself. The hotel is right next to the beach and it's easy walk along the beach to join parties at night time.
This hotel is nicely placed on the beach,we where on the second floor and the stair going up are very short and steep could be difficult for older peoples,the food in general is so so .. many restaurants on the beach to select,good room and very clean all together, we will book again.
Cheap and central”
oldish style accommodation and pretty basic but right on the most busy beach. Beach is getting crowded now that they are bringing in Russian day trippers from Pattaya and it can be a struggle to get a deck chair. If you want quieter go to the south of the beach or pick another beach further south. No safe in room but owner will lock up valuables for you. Wifi is very unreliable and a bit weak. Staff are a bit surly at first but much more friendly when they get to know you. Restaurant has surprisingly good food but there are better/more popular places on the beach. Bottom line - gives you a cheap room right on a beautiful beach. Cant complain too much about that. I had fun
No frills hotel in a good location”
We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and found the hotel to be of an acceptable standard. It was very 'no frills' and although was advertised as having a sea view, our view was off the hotel next door! Be warned that the hotel is quite difficult to find as it is not very well signposted and also the hotel is right in the buzz of it so it was quite noisy in the room in the evenings. Staff were nice enough, although they didnt clean our room when we requested which wasn't great. Overall I would prob stay here again mainly for the great location to the beach but not so much for the room/service.
It's great location, but noisy”
The hotel is just next to the beach with good reatarant, the staffs are good. A little too expensive for this hotel, but paid off with great location. For me "fair". Too noisy at night, the sing Karaoke in the restaurant and the rooms cant keep us privacy
Fun on the beach”
The hotel on the beach is very great but the accommodation a bit old now If you just spend time on beach that wouldn't be a problem
Excelent beach stay”
Good beach front hotel with pleasant staff and all round good value
Good stay, but watch your step!”
Our stay was pretty good. The staff was kind, and had free beach chairs which was great. The breakfast was surprisingly good, and right on the beach too. The only complaints we have are regarding the stairs - they are uneven end almost took a dive down them a few times when not paying attention.
