The hotel is basically what you pay for... basic. I had a "Superior Double Room with Balcony", it's definitely not as good as it sounds. the bathroom was dark and looked like it was still under construction.
The worst thing was the noise from the "street" though. There is basically no isolation whatsover on the windows and there are even gaps in the balcony door, that let mosquitos in.
All in all, the price is sort of ok for this and when you're traveling on a budget definitely sufficient.
The location is great. It was a 2-minute walk from the pier.
Stayed here for two nights, when i got there the bed was already slightly uneven but didn't think anything of it, went to check out and the lady checked the room and demanded we pay for her broken bed even though it was already broken before we got there! The minute i told her i had proof that it was already broken before we got there she went silent. And to top it off, before i left she threatened me saying thailand is very small and i should be careful!! She knew that the bed was broken and she wanted to keep the 500baht deposit! DO NOT STAY HERE
Spent three nights at the Marine House. Staff very friendly. Our room was on the first floor and had a humid smell whe we first got here. Turned on the A/C and that helped. No bugs during our stay. Close to shops and the “Thai food court” which has some of the best Thai food on th island.
Me and a fellow travel companion stayed here for 1 night, the atmosphere and interior was very welcoming, but so were the bugs. In the room there were no visible bugs, but we had a feeling something wasn't right with a mattress sitting outside our door in the hallway. We didn't realise the bed bugs had got us until later the next day, and its a shame because the two lady staff were genuinely lovely people.
At this point during my time travelling Thailand the ants didn't bother me anymore and there were a lot of them hanging by the coffee making station, but i did come across a standoff or should i say sitoff with a huge cockroach that walked in on me on the toilet!
I do hope this problem has or will be sorted with the bed bugs, however i understand its quite a common problem, on the islands especially. I met countless people who had bed bug issues all over Thailand, however this was the first and only place during my time.
This guesthouse was simple and was great just as we didn’t spend much time in the room, however our bed was infested with bugs and the bathroom sink water smelt awful!!!!!
The lady at reception was very friendly, until we asked for fresh sheets and she was angry!
Overall, it’s an average place to stay, but definitely over priced!!!!!
