“Has promise, but works for Muay Thai”
Reviewed 4 August 2013

This is an adequate place to stay for Muay Thai training, but the it needs better service to provide reasonable value for the money. It was very clean from the outside, so I was frankly expecting a bit more when I agreed to reserve a room, but ended up a bit disappointed.

Some suggestions:
1) provide an extra towel or two; one towel for your luxury room is not adequate.
2) provide a phone, since some of the rooms are not close by the mgmt office
3) keep the safe unlocked upon arrival
4) provide soap and basic shampoo/ conditioner
5) provide water
6) a reasonable English speaker should be available at all times in the lobby
7) optional- hire a young lad to help with bags. I feel uncomfortable with having an older lady carry my bags for me, so I wouldn't let her.

Regarding pricing, please realize the luxury/"VIP" rooms are about 1/2 as big as what other hotels are offering.

This property can easily be fixed with minimal investment, since the infrastructure is pretty good. I expect in a few months, things should hopefully look better.

We (husband and I) stayed at Siam for 3 weeks as we were training at Tiger Muay Thai just down the road.
(which we are ever thankful that they suggested we stay here instead of on camp)

Really great staff all very friendly and helpful, the girls always have a smile and a hello for you. I tend to rant so i'll just list what i found.

-Legit friendly and helpful staff
-Great thorough/relaxing massage & sauna/spa services (fair prices from 300 baht, we got sports massages for around 600baht the sauna/spa service is around 150baht i think)
-Nice relaxing atmosphere
-great modern minimal noise air con
-Very clean rooms
-Nice pool
-The cleaning girls are always speedy but do a good job
-close to pharamcy/couple good cheap restaurants/general store/tiger and dragon
-The area itself is fairly safe (full of people training Muay thai) and easy to arrange taxi (fair rates too) for going to malls,tourist stuff.
-Wi-fi that always worked (apart from 2 times the entire stay it was down for about 5mins)even in the rooms.
-can use the pool anytime at night or before breakfast which is cool as where we are now we aren't allowed to :(
-close by is tony's or mamas to eat, floraville is super close too and not bad.

Its not 4/5 star resort but for around $300 AUD for 3 weeks you wouldn't expect that.

I wish i took photos of the rooms to show people but if you go here
http://www.phukethotels.com/phuket-siam-hostel.htm there are some plus i put a few up of the outside and spa.

When we come back to train again we will stay here. We are now staying in a 5 star lovely resort in Karon as a 'treat' for 6 days before we head back home but i find myself missing the cha-long area and laid backness.

Would super recommend for couples or people training at any of the near by gyms- families could probably stay too.

NOTE:The only thing is some may find the beds a bit hard but it didn't bother us.
Oh and the roosters in the morning wake up early! but that is perfect for getting to training or just making the most of your day :) if your tired nap in the afternoons its quiet.

I really appreciated the staff at Siam and often what makes a stay great is how you are treated by the people.

Thank you to Siam so much for a lovely place to rest our beaten up bodies :D and wish you guys all the best!
