I have stayed at Ricos several times over the years and you cant beat the location in a Soi off Bangla road and a short walk to either the beach or to a large shopping mall with all the restauruants you would ever need and the best part about is that its staggering distance from the bars.The rooms are clean and comfortable but they cant seem to get rid of the sewerage smell that comes from the bathroom .As the hotel is at the end of the Soi its just far enough away from the bar noise as to be very quiet, so if you want an early night sleeping is no problem .I highly recommend this establishment , but be warned... LADYBOYS are not welcolme.

This hotel is at the heart of Bangla Road, which is the most happening party street in Patong.
Because it's at the center, you may expect some music noise from the clubs, but when the AC is on, and feeling exhaust, its not hard to fall a sleep.
This is a guest friendly hotel, but no LadyBoys allowed.
If you wanna have fun and party late night then stay here, but if you are looking for quite relaxation then stay away from this street.
The hotel has good size rooms, very clean, safety box in room, and staffs are very friendly.
The price is also amazing fro what you get.
I highly recommend this hotel, and would stay here again

I booked a room for USD16 per night and when I reached there I was surprised that my room is spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was clean and spacious. It is located right in Bangla road so if you're looking for something right in the middle of the action, Rico's is the place. Even though it's located in the busy area, it wasn't noisy at all at night. It's just few minutes walk to Patong Beach and there are lots of options for entertainment & food along the street.

It was me and my buddies' first time to have a vacation in Phuket, and when I was recommended by a friend to stay at Rico's hotel, I thanked him ALOT for this! :D
Me and my buddies love the facts that this hotel is VERY cheap, VERY clean rooms (very cold air-conditioned rooms at that too) and VERY well strategically located near Patong beach, Jungceylon Mall and of course, our favorite place, the Bangla streets, all 3 locations within very easy reach! (Less than 4minutes by walk!)
For the hotel that comes with an elevator, affordable laundry service and water pressure hoses in the toilets (yes thats important too!), are also big bonuses for us. And although it's a simple hotel, its the perfect hotel for us anyway, since we were too 'entertained' and too wasted in Tiger Bangla for 5 nights straight, hehehe, so walking to the hotel is never a problem... :D
Payment-wise is not an issue either, we paid cash on the spot for our rooms without hassle, and we were assisted by the kind receptionist and the staffs for our airport transfer, our laundry and keeping our rooms clean daily during our 6-day stay in Rico's. And we can still manage to get our much-needed sleep during our stay, despite the hustle and bustle of the streets of Bangla.. :)
We're going to Phuket again end of this year, and we know exactly where to stay next time, thanks Rico's hotel! :D

Room Tip: If you're the kind of person who doesn't mind staying at a basic hotel, then Rico's is the place for you... :)
