“Quirky Stay!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2013

Our group stayed at the Quip B&B for 2 nights as part of a short visit to Phuket. This hotel was like a breath of fresh air considering other places we had stayed as part of our backpacking adventure. The recpetion area is certainly impressive, as are the rooms- trendy with a great wet room. This place gave us chance to catch up on sleep and actually feel clean again!

Staff were OK, english was a bit of a problem. Few problems with breakfast orders, where it was easier to eat what we had been given than explain how to actually cook what we asked for! Taxi's were booked for us without a problem and always on time.

This place is in a quiet part of town and is some distance from the lively hussle of Phukets beach, markets and ping pong shows! We did not mind the 30 min tuktuk ride as the quality of sleep was appreciated!


Overall, a really quirky hotel you would expect to find in Europe, in Thailand! A refreshing change at a great price!

Hotel's staffs are not friendly but the coffee shop's staffs are very nice. The hotel has a very unique decoration but no elevator. Room & toilet are big and clean but nothing special. The room is not soundproof so we had to wake up early cuz of the noise of others guests running, walking, talking, screaming thru the corridor as well as the music from coffee shop.

Retro Boutique B&B. Lucky to get a room big enough for 2 small kids & myself with big wide windows. I must say the bed was uncomfortable due to the spring but good enough for a great rest at such price. The toilet was soaked with water after shower due to the poor drainage.

But, the tv has most international cable channels now compared to earlier review.

Breakfast was simple enough to have a great start to town.

The service rendered was much better than big hotels. Both thumbs up for their great help in every way.

We stumbled on Quip last minute as we were getting off the ferry from Koh Phi Phi and had to stay overnight in Phuket before an early flight the next day. We were immediately impressed by the lobby decor as it was something we would expect to see in a trendy Brooklyn hotel.

The hotel was extremely clean and modern. The rooms were sparse but had everything we needed and the bathrooms were a nice change from what we were used to seeing. The hotel also had a restaurant/bar area and our stay included complimentary breakfast.

From what we saw, this was one of the nicer hotels in the city of Phuket and was walking distance from many locations. It was also conveniently located next to the bus to the airport. I would definitely recommend Quip if you need a place to stay when passing through.

When you arrive at quip you can't help but be impressed with it's funky reception and downstairs cafe.

The rooms however are average, clean but so so beds, slow to cool down and the TV only has thai channels as opposed to the usual cable/sat options , WiFi average/ok speed.

Bathroom has a nice hot shower, plugs etc

They didn't clean my room but I've since noticed a please clean my room sign that I maybe should have put out- it's not entirely obvious though.

overall it's a nice place, being new they have a few areas to improve on but once they do it'll be a good place to stay. Breakfast was one of those areas - White bread/toast & cornflakes or choco things and filter coffee. kinda expected a little more.

I got a good deal on agoda so not too bothered but I'd be slightly disappointed if I paid anymore for this room and service

Still budget rooms are hard to find in Phuket and it's a lot better than some of the other similar priced places I've stayed in the town.

Hopefully they'll take note of some of the comments as it could be a cracking place to stay if they up their game slightly

We were attracted by the bright lights of this warehouse style space - what a great entrance. The mini cooper reception desk and banks of vintage TVs paved the way to the cafe where we had a delicious spicy salmon salad and the crispiest, tastiest skinny fries. The whole place was like a party for my eyes, whether it was the crowd of immaculate Barbies lining the wall, the old skool hairdryer stand or the beautiful Burberry upholstered scooter. The service was great and the atmosphere was funky, loved it! A nice change from plate after plate of noodles.

Checked in to this hotel a few days ago (3/3/2013). Manage to find this after checking with Sino Imperial Hotel which is directly opposite of this hotel. The so call car park is at open air which is opposite of the hotel and beside Sino Imperial Hotel. Which means you have to carry your luggage across the busy street (Phuket Road). It's not too bad for me, but for those who has many luggages, it might be troublesome.

Personally i find Sino Imperial has a better location.

The check in process is ok. Just feel a bit busy that i have to pay 500Baht for an extra room card.

The lobby is nice and cooling. It's nicely decorated with lots of antique (old TVs, telephones etc). It has a cafe and sell nice coffee.

There isn't any 7-11 or convenient store, there you have to drive out to get staffs.

The room it self is simple. The bed is on a construction wood crate, which can be quite low for some people. The wall and floor is cemented, which is quite interesting. The bed is very hard and not really comfortable. The aircon is located at the entrance which can be quite far from the bed. It can be quite hot and it took quite some time to cool down the room.

The service is not really good as my room was not tidy up the 2nd day. They didn't provide me extra drinking water, there we have to drive out to get water since there's any convenient store around. In the last day, we requested for old newspaper for wrapping our refrigerated stuffs, but the receptionist just say no without even searching the back.

Personally i think there are lots of improvements on the service though you can't change much on the location.
