Overall, the hotel Karon Sea Side is quite good, small and clean. Of course there are nuances, for example, in the reviews they write that check-in was not working toilet or air conditioning. But during the first call about the problem, the room immediately changed. The bathrooms can be recaptured either split tiles, small defects can be detected and in the rooms themselves.
