      The hotel is really hard to find, its located beside the alley of Washington Massage Parlour (legit parlour). The interior of the hotel is really astounding, all the things looks really new and good. There's even a fridge for you to chill your drinks and beach towels are provided. It is located directly opposite Karon beach which is a really strategic spot plus they provided beach towels AND room towels <3 Overall it is a value for money HOTEL <3

      Excellent location. Very clean & quiet ”

      The hotel is right in front Karon Beach, by the round about and there are a few play areas for kids. The area is very lively with lots of shops and restaurants around. Our room was in the third floor and we could see the beach from the balcony. The room was surprisingly quiet inside and super clean. Although the hotel has only the basics, considering the location and the low price (especially compared with other hotels nearby) it's worth the money. We had a pleasant stay and will come back in the future.

      Right on the beach and a great restaurant outside the entrance.

      We booked seven days after reading some other reviews. Our superior room did not have a view so we asked to be upgraded to Deluxe and we got a room with a balcony and a great view of the beach with the bonus of seeing some spectacular sunsets. The room was cleaned daily by the very friendly receptionist and he even gave us beach towels to use. There was no knocking on the door to clean the room at an ungodly hour like at some hotels. Having free wifi was good as occasionally we were stuck in the room due to the weather.

      As mentioned in previous reviews. This guesthouse is very difficult to find as the Agoda and Google maps are wrong. I took matters into my own hands and sent the correction to Google. So hopefully this will be corrected promptly. Entrance is off the main road down a narrow corridor on the right side of the massage shop. Beside the Waterfront Hotel. Close to Subway. But anyway the staff member was great. The room was fantastic with a small view to the beach. I would love to stay here again.

      Close to beach location. Everything were good.

      That is hotel with two ** stars but concerning rate of "price - quality" it is comparable with **** by my opinion due to there are a lot of experiences for comparison. Perfect sea view room with balcony is located over packed out with peoples walking street especially in the evening. That is good hotel if your preferences are swimming and resting at sea but not in the pool. Room and balkony area is enough for comfort living. Good-speed Wi-Fi , Russian TV is available.

      Good value for a budget room compared ”

      Clean, great location

      we only stayed for 1 night. We stayed in high season so the room was $80 per night, bit pricey for what it was, but then again all hotels in the area were bumping up their prices. Great location, right beside the beach and restaurants, and not on the cheesy strip/street. The room had lots of mosquitos which was annoying. Pros: - Wifi is free - but it didn't work at first, staff at to do something to get it to work but then it was fine - bathrooms have a bathtub - Rooms were very clean - Location is excellent Cons: - Small safe, can't fit too much in it - Rooms are on the small size, can just only barely fit two people Overall, we'd go back there again if looking for budget accomodation. We moved to the Ramada after than, but then again paid 3 times the price to stay there.....#

      Excellent location right across from the beach. Not too many amenities, but everything you need. The man working at the counter was so nice and helpful. We ended up leaving a couple days early only because we wanted to see more of Koh Phi Phi instead of Phuket- nothing against this property. Air conditioning and WiFi worked well.

      Location, right opposite the beach

      The Washington Residence is located very well, just opposite the beach, and close to the area with all the bars and restaurants. The rooms are clean but quite small. The staff spoke limited English and sometimes when I returned there was no-one at the desk to give me my room key! Overall this hotel provides an adequate stay but is overpriced.

      It was quiet and near many good restaurants

      Good place to stay if you do not need 5-star luxury. The pillows were way too thick, though. It is a very short stroll to some excellent restaurants, and, of course, shopping in Phuket is never far away. If you value sleep more than getting trashed, stay in Karon.

      Small well located quite room”

      Good sleep and just across street from Karon Beach

      We had the cheap room a ways back in the hotel so it was quieter than balcony rooms. If you want ocean view get the upgrade. Kind of a small room but functional and the hotel guy was nice enough. Two free pops and water.

      Super nice staff, great location! ”

      We forgot to check out and went for a day trip one day, but the staff packed all our stuff and changed the room. That was so super nice because we left the room in a huge mess! Thank you so much!
