Every year I come to Samui to stay at Ampha Place, a calm, clean and comfortable accommodation in Mae Nam district, 200-300 meters far from the main road and just 150-200 meters to the beach. The owner Eric from Switzerland and his wife Ampha from Thailand make this hotel a small nest of repeating guests. Not only clean rooms and... More

The safe is also too small for laptop or camera. Staff were great help arranging transportation for us to Mae Nam pier and from air port, and we left our phone in... More

We stayed at Ampha place hotel for 1 night because it was close to the Mae Nam pier where the Lompraya ferries to the other islands leave. Although the area is not very exciting, this hotel suited our needs. The room was clean with a nice bed and a television with some English channels. The beach is just a two... More

We recently stayed here overnight on our way back from Koh Tao, and were extremely happy with our stay at Ampha Place. We loved the fact that it is on a street off the main road, and though within a short walk to the beach it did not feel like the full on Koh Samui experience, though there was a... More

We normally prefer to stay in beach bungalows but couldn't find anything suitable. We'd seen good reviews for Ampha Place and decided to give it a try. The hotel is in a good spot, less than 2 minutes walk from the beach and within easy walking distance to the main street where there are lots of restaurants and street sellers.... More
