      Super place”
      We loved staying in this place! Cool, spacious, quiet, well functioning accomodation. Close to our restaurants of choice (vegan) Easy 10 min walk to the beach. Check in was easy, the lady was there, we told her what time we would be there. We did not see her again, but we did no need either.

      Great place. Impossible to reach management and no on-site staff”
      Pros: really good size apartment in an excellent location. 5 minute walk to the beach and a big Tesco as well. Directly beside a local market and on Sunday might there is a night market basically at your door but the apartment is tucked away from the noises and people. Cons: NO staff on site and when we showed up we had to call and tell the lady we had arrived and wait for her to show up and let us in. Really dumb system.. I asked if that is always the case and was told they expect people to tell them their arrival time ( need to make that very clear on the booking site). Also the manager is impossible to reach by email. We were told that they forgot to check it for the whole 10 days we stayed. No dish soap to clean dishes but we just bought some. And from time to time the smell of the market can be quite pungent but whatever, it's thailand. Overall a great place for a great price, just be prepared to be self sufficient. Would stay again based on price, location and place

      Room is perfect, but”
      Room is perfect and very spacious. I stayed alone, it was like a hotel. There are living room and kitchen for cooking But there aren't front desk. So it's hard to get some information or something. Even if I left the hotel, there isn't someone. And it's expensive to go to the Chaweng Beach. If you will stay only near the Lamai Beach, this hotel is pretty good.

      Cool space but no staff or reception around”
      The Cave is a cool space however be prepared that no one is onsite. The owner lives nearly an hour away and doesn't come often. No cleaning on the room and u only get fresh towels every 4 days or so. It was owner or reception was on site it'd be a lot better.

      Everything was beyond my expectations. The price was unbeatable. That scooter we hired from the owner was 50 baht cheaper than all other places. If only I had gotten a massage while down there. So cheap compared to Bangkok!

      LOCATION, BED, KITCHEN
      This 2 stars Hotel, have a huge room, with a good air con, the bed is very comfortable, a nice living room, with cable TV, and they can offer you a balcony, as well. The bathroom have a nice hot water shower, and, the location is really good. The owner is a very nice person, and she'll help you to understand all rules and all facilities that they offer. Next door, have a local market, with Thai Food, all day, and you can buy, fruits, veggies, and other things . And really close, they have motor bike Taxis all day, a Gas station, an ATM Machine, a Pharmacy and this huge Tesco Supermarket and more!! The Beach is only 3 blocks down the street. And, at the beach, you can stay for free, or, drink and eat something, and get a nice long chair, to relax and enjoy your day at the beach. Things around this hotel, is really cheap. You can find excellent restaurants, and only pay five dollars for a good meal. Believe me, because, I stayed there, 2 different times, and I can tell you all of this easily. I recommend this hotel. It's a good deal.

      The best thing is its location. Its proximity to everything. The manager, Yoy is very kind and nice and the room is quite big.
      It was a great stay. The room is big and clean. The manager was nice and kind. The place is quiet and it has a great location. The only thing is the smell outside the apartment because its beside the public market, But over all its worth the money.

      Très bon séjour dans l'ensemble. Studio confortable même en ayant pris un studio standard, literie confortable. Pas de ménage quotidien étant donné que c'est un studio mais très propre à notre arrivée. Manque un micro-ondes pour que ça soit parfait... calme malgré la proximité du marché bonne insonorisation. possibilité de louer un scooter pas loin pour 150 baht seulement, nécessaire pour pouvoir se déplacer car éloigné des animations.

      Tolle Unterkunft, wäre da nicht dieser Gestank!”
      Da es keine Rezeption vor Ort gibt, bei der Buchung unbedingt angeben wann man eincheckt! Ansonsten steht man, wie wir, erstmal ne h davor, klappert jede Ecke ab und klopft hoffnungsvoll an jede Tür. Ansonsten kurz anrufen oder eine Mail schreiben, innerhalb 7min kam die Antwort! Da der Food market direkt nebenan ist, stinkt es ungemein. Hätten wir nicht bereits für drei Nächte gebucht, wären wir auf und davon. Die Bergwertungen und Warnungen hier vor dem gestank haben uns zunächst nicht abgeschreckt und letztlich sind wir mit Räucherstäbchen, Duftkerzen und was der Seven Eleven noch so hergab, mehrmals täglich durch das Studio gelaufen und haben versucht den Gestank damit zu übertönen. Ansonsten war alles liebevoll eingerichtet und sauber. Zum Meer geht es ca 5Gehminuten Sehr empfehlen würde ich den Italiener in der großen Straße parallel zum Meer. Europäische Preise, aber seit langem die beste Pizza gegessen!!

      Durchaus empfehlenswert! ”
      Diese Unterkunft ist für die Nebensaison preislich sehr empfehlenswert,auch für Backpacker,die etwas mehr als im Durchschnitt zahlen würden. Sie ist eher puristisch ausgestattet,modern.Das sollte man mögen.Verfügt über AC,Ventilator,Kühlschrank,Satellitenempfang,freies Wifi,und nebenan befindet sich der Markt,wo man preiswert essen kann.Der Strand ist in wenigen Minuten erreichbar,nur gibt es durchaus schönere.Selbst für Lauffaule befindet sich alles in Nähe. Ein großes Manko ist leider die Erreichbarkeit des Personals,da es keine Rezeption gibt.Deshalb unbedingt vorher ausmachen,wann man ankommt. Und was auch noch ein Minuspunkt ist,verweilt man länger,ist die Reinigung der Zimmer inklusive Wäschewechsel selbst auf Nachfragen erst nach einer Woche möglich,was ich nicht nicht nachvollziehen kann. Daran sollte das Management noch arbeiten. Ich würde auf jeden Fall wiederkommen. Die Zimmer im ersten Stock bieten einen schönen Ausblick in die Berge. Stornierungsbestimmungen beachten
