LiveAndLetDive: "Karon Budget Guesthouse" Phuket Hotel Tip by largerama

Phuket Hotels: 630 reviews and 1,077 photos

Above the dive shop and run by an English bloke and his girlfriend, this is a real good value place to stay in a good location.

The rooms are spotless and roomy. Some have a little balcony and are cleaned daily.

Attached website pics dont really do them justice to be honest. They are much nicer an d all a/c with fan. Discounts for staying longer and if you are buying diving from them.

We paid 700 baht for double room as stayed for about 3 weeks in total.

Unique Qualities: Good location, quiet yet real close to beach, shops, bars and restaurants.
Very helpful and friendly owner.
Great company to book diving through.
