“Very clean and modern hotel.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

The hotel was centrally located and the rooms were clean and beautiful. The stuff was helpful and polite. The breakfast was really basic, both thai and western foods are included. The only thing to complain about is that the rooms aren't soundproof so noises from the busy street and other rooms can bother you.

First of all..avoid going to Phuket in Oct unless you want to walk in the rain and not get any tan at all. Weather was very cloudy and scattered rain most of the time when we were there. Time was spend mostly shopping and eating and drinking.
The hotel is located smack in the middle of Patak Road where restaurants, shops and pubs were easily accessible. It is a simple but clean and nice. The buffet breakfast may need some variety though. TV selections nothing to talk about as most are in foreign language, only one movie channel in English. The staffs are helpful and very friendly.
Karon beach is about 5mins walk away. And Patong is about 6km away. We wanted to get a tuk-tuk for 4 pax to Patong but it cost 400B. So we rented 2 motorbikes instead for 400B. It is advisable to rent the bikes as getting around is so much easier. We use the bike to go to Patong and Kata Beach and didnt even have to top up the fuel.
Restaurants are available all over so just walk around and choose any. Red Onion restaurant is only 2 doors down Simplitel but expect to wait in line but there are many more choices around and excellent and fresh seafood.
The spend 3 nites in a small sport bar called Living Room Cafe. They offer luxury rooms as well. Happy hour starts from 4-7pm where you can get 11B cocktails and they make mean cocktails. 2 other pubs that we went to are Lana and Angus O'Tools. Lana offers buy 1 free Singha beers, cocktails are also quite reasonably priced but not as potent and Living Room. As for Angus O'Tools we stopped by due to sudden downpour. Drinks are a tad more pricey then the rest.
All in all it was a wet but nice short trip. Will avoid Oct from now on though.

Rooms were clean and excellent for what we paid for. The hotel is close to the beach and the staff were very pleasant.
A/C was a little noisy though through the night. 
Would definitely return to stay again.

The hotel is very nice. Not far from karon beach and patong (10-15 min with motorbike that u can rent in the hotel)
Very clean the rooms and the staff is professional. Just a complain: the breakfast is too poor, not much choice of food!

Stayed October 2013, travelled as a couple

The staff are always nice , the hotel has a nice ambience and close to shops . The beach is about 10 min walk. Scooter hire available in the area. The room was big with a balcony view of the mountain. Comfortable mattress you also get 4 pillows. The selection of Tv channels in my room how ever was disappointing. What really annoyed me most was early morning 6am breakfast runs by guests they had to slam their doors and housekeeping with their walkie talkies blasting out i cant stress enough about that. Other than that it was great place to stay for me

Stayed 5D4N at the hotel for our first vacation to Phuket. It was perfect! Friendly and very helpful front officer. Big and clean room with daily room service. We would definitely will be coming back to this hotel again soon. Will recommend this hotel to friends and family too.
