Picture PerfectPosted Dec 6, 2013
Pros: Service, View's, Staff, Infinity Pool, Pretty much everything
Cons: Please enforce your 18+ Rule only, a few occasions we saw kids.
I stayed at Foto Hotel with my girlfriend for 15 days and absolutely loved it. We checked in early in the evening and it was done very quickly with taking a scan of my passport and a bond for our stay (which was refunded within a day of checking out). We stayed in the ozone hall (2nd floor) which pretty much gave us an ocean view when I thought we were going to get a hill view which pleased us very much (So book Ozone if you can!). Breakfast does have a small menu of about 6-7 different options (3 per day) but there is also assorted goodies and cereal if you are not in the mood for what they have on offer. Like all other hotels, Food and drinks are a little bit more but if you are feeling like a cheaper drink and food and dont want to walk very far, Thamarin bar is just down the road which has a bar and food which are both pretty cheap and the food is delicious.

Great overall stayPosted Dec 2, 2013
Pros: The design
Cons: 1. Cleaning of rooms 2. Warmer Breakfast 3. More frequent free transfers to Kata Beach via shuttle 4. Cheaper drinks in the bar 5. No Iron in room
Location: Check out the Horn Grill and Two Chefs restaurants. We mainly spent our time on Kata Beach enjoying the warm water and swimming.
The hotel looks great inside. The main thing that we didn't like was having to walk up a steep hill to get back to the hotel after spending the day on Kata Beach. The hill is rather steep and can be slippery after some rain (about 200m of walking). The hotel does offer a free transfer via shuttle 3 times per day, but we felt that wasn't enough. It costs 200 Baht to get up the hill by Tuk Tuk.

Great hotelPosted Nov 30, 2013
Cons: More frequent shuttle, but not a major issue.
Location: Close to many restaurants, shops etc.
Very modern hotel. Staff very friendly and helpful. Yes it is up a hill but worth it for the views.

Really nice roomPosted Nov 26, 2013
I stayed in the foto hotel 4 nights and everything was alright. The room was really nice, comfortable bed, everthing was really clean, good bathroom. The breakfast is quite good, you can chose between western breakfast, noodle soup and another that i cant remember...and there is as well a buffet with fruit bread jam juices. The rest of the menu for lunch and diner is unfortunetly a bit poor. The wifi offered by the hotel is not really good, you can only connect one device at the time with the password given with your room. The biggest problem for me was the staff, not that they werent nice but most of them didnt have a good english so it was sometimes a bit hard understand them. They have a good shuttle service to and from kata beach but i would advise futur guests to rent a motorbike from kata beach (cheaper than the hotel) to go from the hotel to the beach and around. Quite a pleasant stay :)

Great hotel, shame about it,s locationPosted Nov 25, 2013
Pros: Modern and stylish
Cons: The staff could be able to speak better English, at times had difficulty understanding what was being said.
Great hotel, modern and very clean, the staff could not do enough to assist us with anything we required, the location of the hotel however could be a problem for some as it is half way up a significant hill, it is built into the hill and you are required to navigate numerous sets of stairs to get into and out of the hotel, if you have any mobility problems this hotel may not be for you.

Beautiful view, extremely rude restaurant staff.Posted Nov 23, 2013
The view was amazing. Rooms were beautiful, comfortable, clean. The housekeeping and reception staff were lovely. However, the food was terrible and the breakfast staff were extremely rude. One morning they totally ignored us while serving others that came in after us. When we asked to be served the girl was abrupt, rude and condescending. We found the restaurant staff rude and sometimes extremely negligent of us. The hotel wasn't really suited to Australians as the breakfast options were always seafood. There was also 5 flights of stairs for us to walk up every time we wanted to go anywhere. A cab to the hotel was extra 100 baht just to get up the hill and minimum 200 baht from the bottom of the hill.

Amazing hotel for the price we paidPosted Nov 15, 2013
We booked early so we got a good deal at the hotel, so for the price we paid, we were pretty satisfied, it is not a 5 star but its no less either Pros: Excellent location away from the hustle bustle of Patong Near the Kata View Point, amazing view of the beaches Hotel staff attentive and helpful Excellent room, super comfortable bed and bath tub, nice privacy to the rooms Excellent pool and outdoors Room Service and front desk very helpful Cons: No lift to all the floors in the hotel Portions of stairs uncovered so one might get wet if it rains Steep hike up the hill if you want to walk to the beach everyday, hire a scooter Limited food option for chicken eaters and vegetarians, but then you have enough option down at Kata and Karon Free Mini bar deal is a sham, its just cola and yakult Not many channels on the tv, although that wont count as ure not there to watch tv So, simply put, all in all i think its an excellent hotel if you get a good bargain. We really enjoyed our stay here and in Phuket. Would definitely return to the hotel

Nice view to Kata BeachPosted Nov 13, 2013
Pros: I like the design of this hotel.
Cons: I think need to install more elevators. The room shuttle golf car is unforgettable & funny. But still a little bit uncomfortable for us.
Location: Location is quite quiet. A little bit far from the beach.
