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. But we believe that all of this stuff, on the chipped tiles do not pay attention.
At the same time, the hotel has advantages: rooms free safety Deposit box; refrigerator, in which, when housekeeping put two bottles of drinking water to the volume of 0.5 liters; you choose when you will undertake housekeeping; free Wi-Fi, beach towels, and shampoo and liquid soap.
Yes, the benefits are quite modest but for the price, even quite good.
The hotel has two stars. For reviews of travelers - a rating of 8.6 (amazing).
