The Baan Samui hotel is ideally located. The back of the hotel is on the best stretch of Chaweng beach and the front of the hotel is on the main shopping and dining strip. Perfect! The actual hotel is quite old and quirky! Everything works well but it's not modern like some of the neighbouring properties and that's probably why it's inexpensive. If location is of utmost importance to you - Baan Samui is a winner!
