Fantastico Hotel with Awesome and Friendly Staff”

Excellent Hotel with Brilliant Service

we spent a couple of nights here at the beginning of our trip to phuket. this hotel provides a good value for the quality of hotel and it's really worth your money. we requested a room on the high floor level with a balcony and we're assigned to a nice room with wonderful view of the mountain and forest. the overall decor was modern and comfortable. the room was super clean and spacious with a big size and comfy bed. bathroom was lovely with soap and shampoo dispenser that we're so pleased with it. although there're shops, bars and restaurants next to the hotel, there was no noise during night. not to forget, there's free wifi in our room and in most common areas in the hotel. overall, it's so brilliant. simplitel hotel is located right off of the karon beach, one of the main fantastic beach in phuket. a pleasant 5-10 minute walk brought us to the beach. it's easy to find public transport such as tuk-tuk or taxi service if you need transport to explore other part in phuket. remember to agree the price in advance especially if you need round-trip service. hotel staff went beyond expectations. staff in reception were extremely helpful and friendly even though there were some challenges in communication. breakfast was simple but well-prepared. overall, it's satisfying. all in all, if you want an affordable, absolutely amazing hotel in an excellent location with brilliant staff, this is the hotel for you.

Perfect for what we needed!”

Simplitel was easily one of the best places we've booked through Agoda! This hotel is a 10 minute walk away from Karon beach, adjacent to a cheap convenience store, 5 min walk to karon temple and its market, and within walking distance of many delicious restaurants. The daily breakfast had a decent enough variety and was appreciated throughout our stay. I gave the staff a lower score because we arrived around 2 or 3 AM and the one person on staff was quite rude. Although, it may have been due to a lack of English, but it wasnt very welcoming. All other staff members were outstanding. The room had modern furnishings and was extremely clean. The hotel even set up an extra bed for my 11 year old daughter, and there was still a lot of space for all of our luggages. We were facing the street so there were times we could hear the traffic, but it wasnt too much of a problem. Overall I would highly recommend this hotel if you're looking for a budget friendly hotel within walking distance to Karon beach and other Karon conveniences.

Great place to start our holiday in Thailand”

Helpful staff, Big clean room, Lovey bathroom

We had booked this hotel online because of the great reviews and we were not disappointed. Check in and out was seamless. The staff were so friendly and helpful. They helped us book our ferry to Phi Phi Island, minibus transfer included. The hotel was clean and in a nice position, right next to a 7-11 which we frequented for bottled water, beer and snacks! We caught taxi's to see Big Buddha, Chalong Temple and Kata Beach (all very nice stops). Patong was also just a 10min taxi drive away. Our room was large, clean and had a huge, comfy bed. Bathroom was great and the only one we stayed in that actually had a shower curtain (many other places in our budget had the more open plan toilet-shower setup). This is a great place to start a trip in Thailand after a long flight... get some good sleep to get over any jet lag, while still being close enough to the sights (but far enough from crazy, noisy Patong). All for a really excellent price. Thanks to all at Simplitel Hotel!!

Fantastic Boutique hotel with excellent service”

location, wifi, great staff

All the glowing reviews you've read are true: Simplitel is a fantastic, great value-for-money hotel! What a pleasure it was to stay with Miss Didi and her wonderful staff at Hotel Simplitel in Karon Beach. Especially after relocating from my prior Patong dump! lol Efficient service with a smile is my lasting impression from my pleasant stay here. Miss Didi arranged a discounted day spa package at Oasis on my behalf when I was told the online information about the hotel's spa and massage service was incorrect (they don't exist). She even drove me to the spa herself! Now, thats good service! If they refine their formula and maintain current staff practices, I can see a chain of Simplitel hotels opening up throughout Thailand! Only downside here was the high percentage of Russian guests who seemed generally non-communicative and unfriendly. Breakfast buffet was a bit "simple". I would definitely stay with Miss Didi, Miss Mus and their staff if I come to Karon Beach again!

Great surprise with this hotel”

Rooms and hotel all in great condition

Simplitel has fantastic staff on the front desk who are very helpful and honest. Karon is less busy (by a lot) than Patong, but this hotel is right in the middle of Karon on the main road. Simplitel looks quite new and the rooms are extremely well kept. Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting a break from Patong.

Small hotel but nice location and cheap price”

Big room, good location, cheap, clean, staff attitude really nice

I stayed in Simplitel hotel for 4 nights. Breakfast was good but they offer very few dishes. Coffee was not that good. Toilet and bathroom was nice. Unfortunately, they do not have bathtub. There is no pool in the hotel. They have only one small but equipped gym located at second floor next to restaurant for breakfast. The hotel located at very good place. You can find good massages and restaurants around the hotel. You can walk to beach only 5 minutes. On my last night, air-conditioning system was broken. They offered me new room after I asked them to come and check. Their attitude was really good.

New hotel 300 meters to beach”

Close to beach, new clean room

This hotel is less than 10 minute walk to Karon beach. About 3 city blocks. There is no sidewalk half of the way (typical for phuket) so you have to walk between traffic and parked cars and motorbikes. New rooms, staff was very friendly, they keep it very clean, shower pressure was great (actually had to turn it down from max or it could hurt). Breakfast was a buffet, they always brought more out if they were running low. Coffee was good too - better than most hotels and not instant. Many small restaurants around the area too. They had a small gym and all the equipment is new so its still working great. One bike, treadmill and ellipitical plus a universal and free weights up to 12kg. No girly bars around either, but note that Karon beach can get very big waves in summer (3 meters when I was there), so think twice about staying in Karon during summer if you are not a strong swimmer. I moved to Kata beach, the next beach down and water was still rough but much less dangerous.

Comfortable Stay”

Bed, staff, location

Really enjoyed our time at Simplitel. Everyone there was super friendly and helpful. The location was very central to a lot of good restaurants and with the beach just minutes away. Karon isn't as crowded as Patong or Kata so you get the benefit of a less busy beach. The room was very nice and the bed was super comfortable. The only complaint I would have is that the air conditioner would stop working if it was on for a long period of time and work again after a long break of not using it. I guess it was our own fault for not mentioning it, I just assumed it was supposed to do that. I did like that they were very "green" there. Very energy and water conscious. Breakfast wasn't an open style buffet but it was all you could eat. The menu was a little limited but had the basics. Different meats, eggs in the most common ways, vegetables and Eastern style breakfast as well. They had a fruit platter and toast area which was open style buffet. Will stay there again.

Great value for the location”

Large rooms and balconies

Simplitel was a pleasant surprise. The room was huge, the balcony was huge. Was 4 blocks off the beach and was on the main road for the market, bars, and restuarants. We stayed here for a night then took the ferry to phi phi then stayed here again for a few nights before heading back to Bangkok. The hotel arranged round trip ferry tickets to phi phi which included round trip transfer to the pier. Even let us leave a bag locked up in their offices. We decided to stay here because it was only a short walk to the beach but was more than half the price than the resorts on the beach. Everything was new and clean. Can't find a bad thing about this hotel. Even let us check out 2 hours late so we could spend the morning on the beach the day we left.

affordable, comfortable”

large windows in room, central location, air conditioning

Stay was alright. Hat Karon is very developed, with little remaining culture. I suggest travelers who are looking for more than vaguely trashy, touristy restaurants look elsewhere to stay in Phuket. Hotel itself was fine, although we did have some staff members cause a bit of a fuss when we sat down for breakfast without pre-paying for it (we had planned to pay after, like at every other restaurant, but this caused our server to make a small scene, which was embarassing for us). Internet was painstakingly slow, nearly as bad as dial-up speeds, but that seems to be a common theme in Thai hotel rooms. Overall, though, the room itself was impressive, well-maintained, and large. A good value for people looking to stay in Karon... just do your research on whether or not that's the beach you'd like to be at.

Cheap, very nice rooms, near to Karon Beach

Was not expecting such a nice place. The service is great and the room is really nice. The price that I paid for was also rather cheap. The only bad thing is that it is located at Karon Beach, which is a pro and a con. Merely 10 min walk to Karon Beach but costs 400 baht to take a Tutuk to Patong beach which is the main street in Phuket

Clean, close to beach, great resturant right next door

It was a quiet stay, with clean room large room , close to beach, try the RED ONION eating place its so soooooo good... The staff at this hotel were friendly and happy to help you with anything you may need... The ONLY one drawback to this hotel is that it has NO pool, other than that you can't fault this place. You have a Family Mart just out front of hotel, 5 min walking to beach and a great eating place right next door.... I have traveled through Thailand and Karon Beach is the most expensive for clothes and massages that i have ever seen... I would not spend my money in Karon Beach when Patong is half the price...

large quiet room. very comfortable stay.

we would have stayed longer but they were fully booked for some time ahead. the area around karon beach is less busy than patong with adequate restaurants to suit all tastes. the hotel is well positioned on the main street. the only drawback is the transport to patong. taxis or tuk tuks is your only choice, unless you have your own motorbike or whatever. there is a local bus which is very cheap - it goes from karon to phuket town via kata beach for only a dollar. strange that there is no bus going in the other directin to patong.

Simple and fuss free”

Location, 24 hour mini mart, near the beach

Had a fuss free stay at this hotel. Location is about 200 to 300 meters from the beach. Restaurants, pubs and shops located just around the hotel. It is a quieter area of Phuket in Karon as compared to the nightlife and havoc in Patong. Only thing which I think could be improved is the provision of small items for hotel guests like comb, toothbrush, slippers etc. Even though they do not provide these, there's a 24 hours minimart located just below the hotel which is really convenient. Room was large, bed was comfy, aircon was working well and it was quiet as we got the room facing the mountain. They have a basement carpark too, very convenient for people who intend to drive/ride (we drove). Overall, a good value hotel to stay for the laid back traveler. There's a restaurant located just beside the hotel called Red Onion, the tom yam soup is a must try.

Clean, spacious room. Helpful staff. Located 5 mins away from the beach

fantastic stay at hotel. Room was so spacious it can fit a family of 4. Location was also great, close to beach, restaurants (free wifi) and massage parlour lined up along the street. If I have any negative, it would be the wifi in the location. YouTube videos can't seem to be loaded in the hotel (both from my phone and IPad), was told that the hotel is trying to fix it already. And also bring your toothpaste and toothbrush, they are the only toiletries not provided. But otherwise, best stay in karon!
