You get what you pay for. Stained curtains, towels and linens. Strong mold and mildew smell. Shower was gross. We opted to forfeit 2 nights stay to move hotels. The staff was nice but forgot any English they had when I tried to do an early checkout. There are alot of other options in this area.

Stayed at The Color for the second time, excellent value, good size room, and ideally situated to all amenities. Staff very friendly and always willing to help if needed. Would stay and recommend for people looking for a value room without any amenities.

For travelers on a budget such as my wife and I one couldn't do better than this fine hotel. A little on the smallish side in our room but fun, kind of like a bungalow. Perfect location for walking around the Kata Beach area (shopping, dining & massage). Everything you need right there. 2 of the more TA highly rated... More

We had the best time here. Bedrooms are a great size, very clean with air con and cute decor. Bed was huuuge and super comfy. Close to loads of restaurants, walking distance to beach and also a mini bus that departs from the hotel to take you there. We loved it!

Location was great, it was next to lots of fabulous restaurants. It is a bit of a walk to the beach but they provide a return shuttle for free, on the hour every hour from 12-6pm which was very handy. The bed is huge and comfy, but the pillows were lumpy. The bathroom is odd, it has a toilet and... More

The location is reasonably good - within easy walking distance of Kata beach. The rooms are fairly large for this level of hotel. Large bed. Separate shower and toilet. Fridge. Internet was reasonably fast, although often failed to refer me to login page - there is no other way to get access. The hotel concept is modern design. Unfortunately, it's... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights. We really enjoyed the wacky decorations. Our desk was suspended from the ceiling and the lighting was neat as well. Would definitely recommend this place. Good location near Kata beach too, about a 10 minute walk to the beach .
