Decent hotel in a good locationPosted Jul 2, 2013 on Hotels.com
We stayed here in June for $60/night. They charge $20/night extra if you want to add a 3rd person to the room, which is not bad at all since it also includes breakfast and an extra bed. The room was spacious, the bed comfortable, and there was a mini fridge (doesn't get very cold). The view was terrible, overlooking a heap of garbage in the back of the hotel. The bathroom was ok. The towels were thin and they didn't supply a hand towel. We were also missing a foot towel, which they later provided. The breakfast buffet was good, especially the fried rice. They also have pasta, bacon, cereal and fruits. The pool area was very clean and relaxing. The location is great, about 10 minutes from the airport. There are tons of restaurants, shops and massage parlors nearby. The beach is on the other side of the street.

Pretty nice!Posted Apr 24, 2013 on Hotels.com
There were some cleanliness issues with the room, but nothing that would be a deal-breaker: some dust, a leaky AC unit. Location and access to the beach definitely drive occupancy. The pool is pretty sweet, too. We got a promo rate that eliminated any disappoinment.

Quite AveragePosted Mar 22, 2012
Pros: Happy hour
Cons: No room cleaning
The beds here are very very hard, not very comfortable after a long flight. There is no cleaning of the room , house keeping only make your bed and provide new towels. As for the room service , by the time it got to us it was COLD ..

Do you like blood stains on your towels?Posted Feb 21, 2012
I don't know why this hotel is marked so highly. Its really dirty. There are stains on all the towels, bedsheets, etc. I only booked 2 nights there and was happy to leave.

Very nice but..Posted Nov 5, 2011
The hotel is clean, excellent location, good room,etc. BUT i face an unpleasant experience:I live in Thailand for some years and have many friends in diiferent places, including Koh Samui. A foreigner friend of mine came to visit and no questions were asked. Later on, a Thai friend came to visit and he was questioned as if he was a criminal or a prostitute and asked to leave his ID card in the front desk. Furthermore, my room was booked for two guest and my second guest, another friend was arriving in the evening from Bangkok to meet me in Samui. BUT i was told that if my Thai friend comes to the room, even for short time, would be considered my second guest and noone else could stay there..

Paradise LostPosted Oct 31, 2011
Location: Chaweng had everything I needed and more. This was a return trip after three years so I was very keen in re-visiting the establishments I frequented before. Some have changed management and others have sprung up in their place but over all, I will return to Chaweng again.
I stayed at Nora Chaweng Hotel 3 years ago when it was just newly built. Back then the inconvenience and nuiances of an almost being finished hotel from the strong smell of drying cement and new staff were supplimented well by a courteous and warm service from staff. This visit however three years after was not as warm. Almost none of the staff had a welcoming smile. Then it took the intervention of the manager get us moved to another room/floor after the A/C unit in my Mom's room spewd water all over the TV in her room. But they did find us two ajoining rooms. I ordered a van to transport us to the Airport at 9AM on the day we checked out for a 10AM departure to the airport. We had to wait a good 20 minutes before the van and driver arrived. Very dissappointing.

Nice hotel on Chawen RoadPosted Jun 17, 2011
The rooms at the hotel were comfy and spacious, although I found the bed a little hard for my liking. The hotel is at the beginning of Chaweng road and you have to cross the street and go through another resort to get to the beach, but it's not too much of a distance. However, the happening areas were a bit further down the beach. The spa was wonderful! My wife and I tried the honeymoon package and were in bliss afterwards, although individual treatments are expensive compared to outside massage places and spas. Everything you need (money exchange,pharmacy, last minute purchases) were also in walking distance. I would recommend this hotel to other travellers. I got a good value during low season so I was very happy with my stay.

One of many Nora hotels in ChawengPosted Feb 13, 2011 on Hotels.com
First thing is to make sure your ride knows which Nora in Chaweng you are going to, I saw at least 3 on the main road. Hotel was fairly new although my shower was falling apart. Breakfast was included and quite good (made to order eggs too). Only downside is that they are not "lady friendly". It cost 1000 baht to have a guest visit. I guess it depends what you are going there for.
