Good value, wrong location.

Posted Dec 15, 2017
Pros: The comfort of the room.
Cons: Put the correct location on the map and provide some plates and cutlery in the room.
Good size room with very comfortable bed and large separate bathroom. Large balcony with cooking facilities but no plates or cutlery provided. Very friendly staff - quickest check in I have ever had. Many English channels on the tv and good wifi in the room. The roof top pool is quite small and does not have much shelter from the sun. Hot water in the shower tended to come and go a bit. The only real problem was that the hotel is NOT where shown on the map on all the web sites. It is several hundred metres further down the road. It is at least a 10 -15 minute walk to the beach along a very busy road with few footpaths. I hired a motor scooter!! Overall a good hotel . It seems a pity that they try and deceive people by showing the wrong location. I would not have booked it if I had known the true location!!

Lovely staff but hotel is in poor condition

Posted Jan 20, 2017 on Hotels
We booked the hotel thinking that it is near the beach but it in fact a 10-15 minute uphill/downhill walk with no proper pavements. The staff are friendly and helpful but the hotel is let down by the poor condition of the room. The room/bedsheets had a smell (maybe from mothballs?). The bed was uncomfortable and had a hole in the centre of the bed. You can even feel the bed springs poking into your back. We were informed that there will be a power cut at 9am the next day but were not told of a water cut. We were due to check out that day and i needed a shower in the morning because our flight back was at 10pm. We have to buy gallons of mineral water so that we can take a shower. Nothing that they can do about this, unfortunately, but we were told about the water, we would have woken up much earlier in the morning to have a shower.

Best beds on the planet - relaxed staff

Posted Sep 18, 2014 on Hotels
The staff at Kata Studios are laid back and there are no sales pitches for anything (which is a refreshing change in Thailand). The queen bed in my studio was the most comfortable hotel bed I have ever stayed in - both firm yet soft. The balcony kitchen is great if you want to prepare your own food but after sampling the food at the restaurant attached to the Hotel I didn't bother. The Capricorn restaurant was fantastic, fresh, and cheap as chips. The rooftop pool and spa is awesome and if you prefer the beach then it is a ten minute stroll down the hill. I hired a moped from a place a few doors up and was at the beach in 30 seconds. The stay was very relaxing and I wouldn't hesitate to come back here again. Thankyou !

Kata Beach Studio OK

Posted Feb 9, 2014 on Hotels
About ten minute walk to beach. Some rooms face noisy street with motorbikes cruising by, but ok for sleeping. Expensive for the quality but I was there Chinese New Year so everything was overpriced.
