I did a reservation at this guesthouse two months before arriving. The booking was confirmed and when I arrived after a long trip from Europe there were no more rooms. The owner said he had made a booking at another place which I did understand was at the same price. It turned out to be double the price and that... More

I appologize for the mistake. We had a chabge in staff at the time and one of our rooms ended up double booked. I do have an agreement with both guesthouses on each side of me that in cases like this we charge the original price. When I found out that that guesthouse had raised it prices I brought the...

I arrived in Phuket after travelling and working in Australia for a year and wanted some time to relax before returning to Ireland.I had no set plan and I just found my way to Karon and set myself up in a hotel in the town. On my second night, I took myself for a walk towards the more quiet side... More

We stayed at KT guesthouse for 3 nights. The rooms were very clean and well as the bathroom. Rooms are cleaned everyday and new towels are provided (love that) We had a room with balcony to the street, but noise didn't bother us. The room has TV (some channels in English) safety box, aircon, free water bottles, and clean linens.... More

Karon Tropics provides an extremely relaxed "tropical" atmosphere where Rocky and his staff will make you feel more like family. Ideally located across from Karon Temple (Wat Suwan Kirikhet) and a very short walk to Karon Beach, one of the nicest ocean beaches in Phuket. Karon Tropics Guesthouse provides convenient access to all of the restaurants and bars in Karon... More

I highly recommend the Tropics, particularly for the price. My room had a queen size bed and was clean, large, and had a great A/C. I had a private balcony which was nice, although it overlooked a fairly busy street where some noise came in the morning but nothing overbearing - ear plugs would have been good but not necessary....

Karon tropics is great! Super friendly and helpful staff. The owner Rocky is knowledgable on the local dive scene. The crew are great and will cater to your every need. Rooms are tidy, big beds and clean. Feels like a home away from home. Will visit again for sure.

The friendliest staff you will ever meet, kindness and help is second nature. I was very impressed with the views the hotel offered and the hotels overall cleanliness. ( I stayed in some shanty places). This place was like you'd expect a hotel to be and for the price right up from the beach you cant go wrong. My family... More

“Balcony rooms are a bit load but worth the view.”

“The only thing that I would add, and this depends on the character of the visitor... if you're like me and don't come home til the small hours then it might be worth considering sleeping at the back of the house as the sun rises from the front of the building and it can make it difficult to sleep, as well as the noise of the traffic when it gets busy. However, if you are a 'normal' person then this will have no bearing on you and you should take full advantage of the moring sun and the views from your balcony!”

“The rooms in the front have the best view, but can get a little noisy. If you need quiet, just ask for a room in the back.”
