The Paradise Inn Phuket is perfect for anyone who only wants somewhere to sleep and store their stuff while they explore. The rooms have key cards and there is a safe so it is pretty secure. The only drawback is the live music from the bar opposite the hotel is pretty loud until about 1am which might be a problem if you want to get up early to go diving or whatever. I found with earplugs I could get to sleep. You can get breakfast across the street at the Paradise Inn's sister hotel. You can also bring guests to your room if you wish. The hotel will arrange for airport pick up. If you arrange this, don't forget to tell them if you are flying in from overseas or from another domestic airport such as Bangkok. International and domestic arrivals exit from different terminals. Your driver might be waiting at the wrong terminal and this will save you time if you tell them in advance which it is to be. The drive from the airport to the hotel is about an hour to an hour and a half depending on traffic.

Room Tip: Ask for a south facing room. These are quieter.

Hi russellw170,

Thanks for visiting and Sharing,

We're happy you enjoyed your visit. It's great to hear you felt safe and comfortable in your room. As you mention, there is a bar that plays music on our Soi as we are located in the heart of the entertainment district. Guests can request a quiet room, or as our front desk for ear plugs if this disrupts their stay.

Important Footnote For Prospective Guests. Please kindly note the following benefits of staying in our group of smaller properties. You get all the amenities of our sister 4 star resort, here's the list:

* First please note we have two Buildings within 50 meters of each other. Please consider it as though you're staying in a large resort and you might get Building A or Building B. Our two buildings are known as Paradise Inn and Karon Cafe' Inn. We market them separately and together so you might get either one. They are marketed separately and together. We have a great deal of flexibility on your requests. Our most popular rooms are the street view rooms due to the continuous show of activity and nightlife. However even though our rooms are soundproofed street view rooms will get some noise. So we suggest people looking for quiet request a back side room.

* Wifi works. We have an enterprise system which works because we have IT staff to set it up and service it. Please check reviews of other small places and you'll see most people either don't even expect it to work or they complain it doesn't. That's cause they simply don't have staff who can do anything about it.

* 280 Thread count sheets (other guesthouses in the area don't have the buying power to get this quality and price we get so they simply run down to the department store and buy flowery 180 thread count linens.

* Same for towels, we use first class 5 star towels and it's been mentioned in reviews. However most people who stay in lower end places like Paradise Inn don't even realize the difference.

* Same goes for TV's we buy 100 pcs at a time so you get top model Samsung Hotel Models. Whereas most places give you no name TV's which aren't correctly programmed or maintained and that's why they don't work. Our TV's are designed to be reprogrammed by USB injection and we can block previous Guest's from screwing up the programming.

* Immediate 24 hour response to maintenance or other emergency requests due to our company having 24/7 team on hand. This will not be the case with any other small properties in this area. For immediate service, please simply call our head office during midnight hours (24:00 - 06:00) when reception is closed at +66-(0)76-398–350/2.

* Complimentary use of swimming pool and health facilities at our sister 4 star resort.

And the list goes on.

So all in all. We hope most Guests will appreciate the difference.

Happy Traveling,

Team Paradise Inn and Karon Cafe' Inn

We booked this hotel the night before we stayed and got a deal of less than £10 a night! With a deal like that we were unsure what to expect but we were greeted with a lovely surprise. The hotel is very clean, the staff are friendly and helpful and the room was amazing! Brand new powerful air con - being British this really helped. The room was spacious, smelt lovely and clean, had a large bathroom, a safe, a mini fridge and a nice tv, although we didn't watch it. We had a lovely view from the top floor of the front of the hotel, we could even see Big Buddha from lying on our bed! The only downsides for this hotel are the wifi on the top floor kept disconnecting and wouldn't let us rejoin for a while and the noise from the bar in the street below until 2am, it was bearable but it's worth noting. These two things wouldn't stop us from returning though! We loved this hotel and would recommend it to friends.

Dear Hughes28,

Thanks for visiting and Sharing,

We're pleased you enjoyed your stay in our budget accommodations.

We do wonder if you tried using our "One Touch Concierge Service" by calling 0 on your house phone regarding the wifi issue. Because we have three properties in Karon Beach and one is a 4 star resort, we have IT staff available from 08:00 to 22:00 who can sort out issues like that for you immediately. And we do kindly appreciated when folks call us to inform of issues such as that. We have the staff and we want to keep everything perfect.

Happy Traveling and Thanks again,

On Behalf of The Team Paradise Inn and Karon Cafe' Inn


IMPORTANT FOOTNOTE FOR PROSPECTIVE GUESTS:

* Please kindly note we operate multiple properties in Karon Beach. Our Two Guesthouses are known as Karon Cafe' Inn and Paradise Inn, they are two Buildings within 50 meters of each other connected by the same phone system. They are marketed both separately and together and main reception services are provided at Karon Cafe Inn. In many cases if we have an opportunity to upgrade a Guest we will move the booking to the other property unless you request to have a room only in the property you book. Our most popular rooms are the street view rooms due to the continuous show of activity and nightlife. However even though our rooms are soundproofed street view rooms will get some street noise until about midnight. We have a great deal of flexibility on your requests at the time of booking, So we suggest people looking for less street noise request a back side room.

You also get many of the amenities of our sister 4 star resort, here's the list:

* Wifi works. We have an enterprise system which works because we have IT staff to set it up and service it. Please check reviews of other small places and you'll see most people either don't even expect it to work or they complain it doesn't. That's cause they simply don't have staff who can do anything about it.

* 280 Thread count sheets (other guesthouses in the area don't have the buying power to get this quality and price we get so they simply run down to the department store and buy flowery 180 thread count linens).

* We have the same DreamMaster Mattresses to be found in Marriott Hotels and 5 Star Hotels found throughout Europe. We use them for a couple years in our 4 Star Resort and then move them to our Guesthouses. It's been mentioned in many reviews how comfortable our beds are compared to others.

* Same for towels, we use first class 5 star towels and it's been mentioned in reviews. However most people who stay in lower end places like Paradise Inn don't even realize the difference.

* Same goes for TV's we buy 100 pcs at a time so you get top model Samsung Hotel Models. Whereas most places give you no name TV's which aren't correctly programmed or maintained and that's why they don't work. Our TV's are designed to be reprogrammed by USB injection and we can block previous Guest's from screwing up the programming.

Booked room for 15 nights and Im happy because I did it. It can be noisy but ask for the room in the back of hotel. The sheets smells clean, towels are good, room is large with great air conditioner. A mini fridge, free wifi, for super great price. The staff are really friendly and will do anything to help you enjoy your time here. Breakfast is served at Karon cafe and I have to say that I expected more. It is 179 bahts (5e) and you get only few options that are always the same. That was the only minus.
Would love to return here again because this is one nice hotel. Big hug...
P.S - Im still at the hotel while Im typing this. ;)

Room Tip: Back side of hotel if you dont like quite nights.

This is a small hotel (room only) but a great place to stop. The rooms are reasonable in size, not massive but not small and pokey either. The staff are really friendly and will do anything to help you enjoy your time there. The rooms, and the place in general, is spotless.

The Inn is nice and central and about a 5 min walk to the beach.

Would I return, yes for sure I would.

I booked this little 10 room Inn for location and budget, both were excellent! Be warned however if you need peace and quite this is not going to happen here, music is loud from the next door singer and a lot of street noise. They warned me to take back room but I can sleep through any noise!!! I loved the Karon cafe below the Inn, both Thai and international menu, good food! The staff is so kind and gentle, just like Chiang Mai, but Phuket is over run with tourist. Too many for my preference, the beaches are also jam packed, I think Krabi would be much better choice for me! The sheets are high count, towels are plush, room is large with great air conditioner. A mini fridge, free wifi, for super great price. So glad to be able to walk everywhere, only downer is no pool- no big deal with the beach nearby!

Room Tip: Book a back room to help with noise.
