A little hard to find to start with as its tucked away, but I have absolutely no complaints about this hotel. Wonderful stay, wonderful service, wonderful location, wonderful staff, and the 2 dogs that stay there are the sweetest dogs I've ever seen. Couldn't have picked anywhere better for the price.

We stayed at the Retro Siam for a total of 5 nights, and it had its ups and downs. The good points are the nice rooms, with an exceptionally comfy bed, good TV, huge fridge, strong air con. The draw backs for us were that the aircon, although strong aims right at one side of the bed which means the... More

Judging from other listings in this location, 500 Baht is the going rate for a room, but if you're given# 302, which we were (the other two choices are 301 and 201), 500 seems a little pricey for what you get. They should price that one room 50 baht cheaper, really. The staff is super nice, specifically the main dude... More

It's a very small guest-house (definitely hard to call it "hotel" as it has only 3 rooms). Quite far from the beach - 15 mins walking when you take a "short-cut" (path leading next to a very smelly sewage canal, not exactly what you call a romantic destination). I think it's not a good place when you are planning long... More

Stayed 4 days 3 nights. The guesthouse is located in a very peaceful and quiet place in Kata. Takes about 5-10min walk to the beach. The service staffs are very nice and friendly, always smiling. They are quite strict on the check in time (2pm). We are not allowed to checked in early. The reception and our room is a... More

Beautiful guesthouse close to a very pretty beach on Phuket. The room was very clean and well decorated, the shower had warm water, bed was comfortable, balcony was lovely to sit out on and the aircon was very welcoming! Wifi signal was strong. The guesthouse is along a road with many different restaurants nearby as well as a 7 eleven... More

We love the view over the different colour roofs outside, top floor room is a couple of flights with a backpack but worth it for the great value - Kata beach is lovely, we are so glad we didn't need to go to Patong

To be truth, the place is really awesome. In our recent Phuket trip we visited over 6 different hotels, but Siam deserve highest rate from our list. First is location, it's really great, because hotel located in stub area and there is no any attraction places near by, you will have all chances enjoy your sleep. Secondly, rooms are spacious...

“No lift and two out of three rooms are on 2nd floor with steep stairs.”
  • View from balcony when you do NOT look down... would be nice if it wasn't so smelly :(
  • When you look down from the balcony... sewage and trash. How can people let that happen?!
  • Our room - clean but crazy colour ;)
  • Our room - nice and cozy
