Valero Guest House

Reviewed 24 November 2013

Absolutely great place to stay in you're looking for a low budget place. It's not right down in action of Patong but isn't far from all the hustle and bustle. There is a place right next door that will rent you a scooter for $5/day. That's right, $5 for the whole day. Our room was always clean when we came home. There is a 7/11 within walking distance and plenty of little restaurants all over. The staff was always helpful and pleasant.

Can not fault this place. Large basic rooms, aircon, fan, TV, fridge, hot showers with good water pressure
Pool which catches morning sun, providing a nice place to cool down. If you can, reserve a downstairs room, walk out of patio doors for direct access to pool.
Beach, main entertainment area, only an easily walked 15 minutes away. The hotel is away from the crowds and noise, with plenty of
bars, shops, places to eat within a few minutes. For the first traveller
to Phuket, Indigo will provide a wealth of local knowledge and advice.
I enjoyed my stay so much have booked for Feb.2014.
Motorbikes can be rented from the owner Inigo very cheaply.

I cannot image better value-for-money as at this guest house. Rooms, although basic, are very spacious and clean, with big and comfortable bed. With A/C, big fridge,tv and spacious wardrobe, not need really anything else.
Pool is not very big, but still great after all day travelling around.
But what really makes the difference is the staff. Always attentive and willing to help with a smile on their face. Specially from the manager Inigo, who made our stay really enjoyable and easy. He booked for us the taxi from and to the airport, bike rental, excursions, and gave us every tip about best bike excursions, beaches, bars and restaurants all around Phuket.
I cannot say anything wrong about it and I will repeat without any doubt on my next stay in Phuket.

Admittedly, it took us a rather long, drawn out taxi journey from the airport to reach out guest house but with a more experienced driver [it was his first week!] I expect it would be much easier to locate. We certainly found we were able to walk around and identify it easily.

Our room itself was basic if a little outdated but supremely clean, no mould, no rust, just hygienic. The bed was fresh and comfortable.

The pool was also very clean and you could use it up until midnight which was perfect after we'd spent the best part of the day travelling from the U.K.

What sets this guest house apart from any other in which I've stayed was the friendliness of the host. He was jovial and helpful, he even assisted us in sorting out travel to Ko Phi Phi and arranged for one of his friends who owned a taxi to drive us round the Southern tip of the island as it was particularly wet which was a thoroughly enjoyable day out!

Good for a traveller on a budget.

Was travelling parts of Thailand last year (november 2012) and stayed at Valero Guesthouse both times i was in Phuket, unfortunately my trip was only 1 month long so only got around to visiting Phuket and Phi Phi. Myself and my girlfriend are currently staying at Valero for 4 nights, before moving on, and as my last experiences here were good, decided to book back into this Guesthouse. The owner, as mentioned by others, is a really friendly and genuine guy! The location is good, a short walk from from all major attractions in Patong (beach, Bangla Road, shopping centre, restaurants). Walk either way out of the guesthouse and there is everything you need, 7 Eleven and Family Marts, currency exchange, ATM's etc etc. The rooms are spacious with bathrooms, all have pool views and A/C. (Only ever stayed on the top floor, been fine each time). They are cleaned daily and the cleaning staff are friendly. All in all a good stay.
