      Extremely Satisfied”

      While we are thinking how to get to the hotel, there was the hotel staff taking their hotel name sign board waiting at us at the Pier, after confirm with our name the staff bring us to the hotel. It is very near to everything, mini market, food shops, tour agency... Our check in is quick and effective, reception is really friendly, the lobby is clean they force us to take off our shoe once we step into lobby, till the way to our room is totally shoe off. Room is nice, we like the resort feel with all the solid wood design look, toilet is clean with a big basin easy for us to do some simple clothes cleaning, and with swimming pool view balcony. The next day after we have checked out at 11am, we plan to have a swim at the sea, while the bathroom at seaside is not provide with clean water, we plan to come back to JJ Residence to pay for a quick bath, surprisingly they didnt charge us any. We were extremely happy to back to krabi town with a nice bath . A small tips: Look for Phi Phi Sunset tour (Original) Agency for very good deal snorkeling island tour just 3mins walk from our hotel. The guide is professional even bring us to see shark. We got the early tour at 6am at 700baht each.

      I liked, will stay again, but it's not without it's problems.”

      This almost never happens, but I found the room to be "better" than the pictures. Most of the pictures I've seen of these rooms are dark and yes, the rooms are a bit too dark with dark wood ceiling and dim lights, but I found it to be kind of romantic and the overall appearance to be nicer than what I had seen in the pictures I'd seen from the hotel, and thus better than what I had expected. I got 2 rooms of which both accessed the pool directly. I can't emphasize more how impressive this is to be able to look directing out into the pool and being able to walk out directly into the pool. I like staying at places with pools, but I never seem to get to the pool, but it was so easy to access the pool here that I found myself in it twice every day. Price: I've read some reviewers complain there are hotels near for less. I'm sure there are, but I doubt this nice. Maybe there are other nice hotels too in this price range, but do they have a room which directly accesses the pool? Probably not. The rates this hotel charges are reasonable. If you want cheap, get a cheaper hotel as Phi Phi has lots of crappy cheap hotels to select from. One thing about Phi Phi is you won't be spending much time inside your hotel so don't obsess over getting the best hotel. Depending upon what type of traveler you are, you may or may not be ok with a crappy cheap hotel either. I like nice, clean, modern, but reasonably priced hotels and this hotel fit that need to me perfectly. I'm not usually wanting to pay for the best, but not willing to stay in crap either. Everyone is different, but for me this hotel fit perfectly. Location: I'd been to Phi Phi a few times many years ago and it was much easier to find your way around then, but it's so dense now that it's confusing and difficult to find your way around the maze. Finding this hotel would have been very difficult, but they have staff waiting at the pier when the boats arrive with a sign for the hotel and they will take you to t

      Location, Cleanliness, Pool

      We stayed at JJ Residence for 3 nights and we wish we would have booked more! Luckily, we were given a room in the newer building (I would ask for this) and it was spotless! The room was large, comfy clean bed, had a great balcony and more modern furnishings than we've seen at other Phi Phi budget hotels. The gardens and pool were an amazing addition and beautiful as well...perfect escape from the hustle on the island. Staff were attentive, available and housekeeping did a superb job. This was an unexpected hotel for the price, we'd highly recommend and will definitely stay again.

      Much better than expected”

      I went into this expecting the worst because of everything I've read about Phi Phi Island being so dirty and trashy and having so may bugs, so I was actually very surprised when I had a well above average stay at JJ Residence. We were only there for 1 night, but the room was clean when we arrived, had air conditioning, basic toiletries, etc. and bed was comfortable. Staff was helpful and very friendly, and watched our bags for us since we arrived before check in time. Based on my stay, I would definitely recommend it to others and book with them again if I were to go back.

      Best you'll find in central Phi Phi”

      Most places in Phi Phi are absolute crap, dirty, loud, hot, smelly and full of extreme partiers, not JJ Residence. It was clean, cool and quiet but still close to all the action. The pool was nice as well. Only drawback is the front desk staff who were curt but i dont blame them due to the droves of hungover teens they have to deal with. I would definitely stay here again.

      3 Best things. Location, Room, Pool

      This hotel was great, we read so many reviews and we were so confused on what to do. Stay on Pier/Dont stay on Pier. My advice 100% stay on Pier. Believe me when u walk up to Viewpoint someday and die with muscle pain and imagine ppl who have to walk that everyday. Hell. It is in Perfect location. You can leave and if you forget something or want to back for a rest it is so nice to be so close. 2 minute walk from Pier. Great location. Whilst in Room you'd think you were on an empty Island we heard nothing even from pool you hear nothing. We stayed in Delux Room and it was so nice. It was to the left of reception, seems to be 2 buildings. Room looked newly renovated. Room was cleaned everyday, fresh towels, toilet paper, sheets, coffee and water everyday. Aircon great. Electric Shower. Pool was amazing and had lovely area to lie near pool. Hotel seems have 2 pools, again we had pool on the left of reception not the one behind reception. This one way nicer so use that one. If i had to say something bad it would be wifi from our room wasn't good but we had got thai simcards with unlimited data so personally it didnt bother me. And every restaurant/bar/massage place has wifi so dont fear you will be disconnected from the world. Hotel doesn't serve food but Annas Restaurant 30seconds away AMAZING. We ate Breakfast Lunch and Dinner there. If i came back to Phi Phi i would def stay here again. Oh and when you get off ferry the pier has all men with signs of hotels you walk up to the guy with your hotel and they will walk you to the hotel and help with a bag or two. Enjoy

      Slidingglass doors to the balcony, wooden touch, swimming pool

      We were picked up by one of JJ Residence staff who kindly offered to take our luggage. It's located about 4minute walk from Phi phi island main entrance. Whenwe arrived at the hotel, we were straight away impressed by the clean, wooden touch pf the room. It has glass doors on one side of the walls, which has sliding doors to the balcony where you can sit and relax. Our room was on the third floor, and the view is just a neighbouring hotel's roof, but nonetheless it was nice to have a balcony overlooking the swimming pool and the tip of a cliff. We always come back to the room cleaned. The room itself feels really homey and nice. We stayed for 4 nights, and didn't want to leave. Although we'd done everything we could in those 4days! We'd definitely recommend JJ Residence and will come back! thank you for lovely service.

      Amazing room with an amazing view”

      Large, Spacious and much desired comfort

      The JJ residence should not be confused with the other 2 establishments that they have; Bungalows and Suites. If you walk the proper route (which is to go straight from the pier, first left turn), you'll find the residence building in 3 minutes rather than to wait at the pier for the rest of the guests which could take you 15-30min. There was 2 buildings to JJ, one which is connected to the main recept where you can oversee the simple small swimming pool. The other was located at the "backyard" of the police station post-fisherman's wharf. Not the ideal route to walk to your room but just a 20-sec inconvenience and you will be greeted by a pleasant stairways. Once you open the door, you will be greeted by an amazaing room with an exceptional scenaric view! (I'm staying on the 2nd floor,so I can imagine the 3rd floor's view). A large spacious bed and room and bathroom. Bed was very comfy and balcony for you to relax and sip your tea while you listen to the locals chatter below your hotel. The local eateries were located directly behind the hotel so no shortage of local food. Nightlife region is 10 minutes away. A very good hotel where you want to near to everything but not short of a good night's sleep. Not a party goer so I appreciated the soft music (lullaby) in the background while dozing off. If there's ever 2 advice I would give; close the bathroom at all times because of the mosquitos that come out. Don't bother finding the 2,000 bahts on offer for throwing your toilet paper down the bowl (gave us a good laugh when we saw the sign)

      Relaxing stay on a budget”

      Bed, location, pool

      All the hotels in phi phi seem to have bad reviews so we only initially booked one night but extended our stay for 3 nights as it was cheap and a chic place. Location- very close to beach Staff- very friendly, not given list of rules just a note about not putting toilet paper in the bowl. Bed- very comfortable Noise- the first night was very quiet, however the second night we were woken by Spanish people shouting in the alley way (not hotels fault). There is a club who play music with a horrifying base which the locals must hate but it stops around 2. You can't get away from that noise but it isn't bad as long as you close the patio doors. Pool- pool is small but it's enough to relax in for a short while. Overall, it was a enjoyable experience hence extending our stay. Thank you JJ !

      Beautiful, clean and excellent location!

      JJ is the perfect solution to a beautiful yet afforable hotel in Phi Phi. It is right in the middle of Tonsai Village where many of the bars, shops and restuarants are. The room was cute and clean. The AC worked well and the bed was very comfortable. There were comments on Agoda about the receptionist being rude. She was a bit rude but it is well worth the stay at the JJ. I wished we would have booked more nights there on Agoda to get the discounted price.

      Location is good if you want to be near everything, but away from the music and noise. If I were to visit Phi Phi again, I would prefer staying in Long Beach which is further away from all the noise, but a 30 minute walk to Tonsai Village. Long Beach is quiet, the beach beautiful and a nice hike to the village. The room at JJ Residence is okay. The sheets are not the whitest and the bed is not 5-star, but it is a budget hotel. I would imagine most hotels are similar to JJ unless you pay much more money. On the first night, I found a huge cockroach which definitely made me anxious and my stay less comfortable. I had an unopened bag of food in the room and perhaps that's why the roach came out. I put the bag in the fridge and did not see another roach the second day. Staff is friendly and helpful.

      We stayed at this hotel in May for 3 nights. The hotel has a great location between Tonsai pier and Loh Dalum Bay. There are many restorants and shops near the hotel. Nightlife is close too, but in the hotel is quiet at nights. The room is big, clean, with a large bed and clean white towels and bedclothes. The air-con is new and noiseless. The room has become cold very fast. We really liked our stay in this hotel. I recommend this hotel for stay in Phi Phi.

      Quiet, Clean, Close to attractions

      This hotel is in the busy area of Koh Phi Phi, however, because it is down a side street, it is quiet at night. The whole hotel was clean-you must take your shoes off before going inside. The manager was very kind in letting us leave our luggage there well before check-in time and the next day after check-out time as we waited for our ferry. The staff was organized and efficient...I could tell the manager runs a "tight ship." There were only a few drawbacks... There was an Asian style shower-no doors or curtains, so the whole bathroom gets wet. The view outside the room was not attractive-no lovely beach to look at, just some scrap metal behind a chain link fence. I also thought the price of $52 (with tax, etc.) was high for such a basic hotel that did not include breakfast. However, if you are looking for clean, quiet, and in a central location, and you don't consider the price to be high for Thailand, then it's a great place to stay!

      Amazing and will be back”

      location, pool, room

      The stay was great here. I was a bit apprehensive with some bad reviews, but I can't agree with ANY of them! This was a great place to stay and great amenities and cleanliness. the pool is great, and such a nice area to sit in with the nice gardens around. The room was spacious and the bed was really comfy and the air con was the quietest air con I've ever had! Can't complain at all, the cleaners were there everyday to clean and would come back whenever you weren't there if need be. The noise from the beach party is only slightly audible and definitely wouldn't keep people awake. Ill definitely stay here again as a regular to Phi Phi.

      Unexpectedly nice room and clean”

      Clean room, easy access to beaches and pier

      Overall, the stay was good there, it is about 5 minutes walk to the pier and 10 minutes walk to the beaches. That is because Phi Phi is so small, so everything is easily accessible. It has a swimming pool as well, not that big, but good enough to swim around. The hotel staff may not be a good speaker of english, so sometimes, we have difficulty to communicate with them. I am not sure if that is because it is in Phi Phi, because the local people's english is not superb. Just to be reminded that the street there is not easy to recognize, because of the complex structure, so we lost ourselves lots of times :D

      Fantastic place that exceeded my expectations”

      Very nice place that really exceeded my expectations: ignore somewhat simplistic greeting lobby, as actual rooms are located in a separate new building: clean recently finished big rooms, balcony big enough to have a lunch there, swimming pool in case you're too lazy to walk to the sea. The only downside was: my balcony was facing a construction yard, probably neighbouring hotel under construction. Anyhow, I spent most of the time exploring the Phi Phi Don island, so I couldn't care less; and I still could have a meal at the balcony open air. Shame I had too little time there... gotta come back some time later!
