        You get what you pay for”

        Price, good room size, okay location.

        Mai Pen Rai is located just before the main Kai Bae resort (if travelling from the North of the island). It's directly opposite the walking street area. The room was a good size and generally clean. The walls however did have insect droppings on them and could use a good cleaning. The balcony was large and overlooked the courtyard area. Room service was provided every two days. I would say that if you're travelling on a budget, then Mai Pen Rai is good value for money but for a few £ more, you can stay in a slightly better location in Kai Bae.

        Clean room

        When travelling Thailand you never know what to expect when you get to your hotel, but with this one we were pleasantly surprised! The room and bathroom were very clean and had hot water. The aircon worked well, there was a television and a fridge with free water in. Its near shops and resturants and not very far from the beach at all. I've only rated the food 1 because they don't do food.

        price,price,price

        this guest is cheap however you dont get much. its in a bad location at the begining of kai bae so you will require transport to get around. rooms are pretty basic,i was offered room service once in 4 days. air con was noisy,and the guesthouse seems to get filled up with cheap tourists who like to party most nights. its a long distance to any beach and the hotel and its area are dusty from all the passing trucks

        central location close to local restaurants, good starting point to get to other areas like lonely beach or into the national park

        I think this guesthouse is a good value for the money (paid $16/night), reasonably clean and friendly staff. If you only need a room to sleep because to plan to spend your day outside (beach, swimming, hiking, etc), this is a choice however, I would not recommend if you want to spend a certain amount of the day in your room. Bathroom is very basic and furniture minimum quality level.

        Was a really nice room with an awesome view, very good aircon, nice amenities included, pool was very nice and clean. But the water pressure in that room was very bad, the tap in the sink was just dribbling at full capacity and the shower wasnt very enjoyable due to the low pressure.
