The location is very close to patong beach and Bangla road nightlife! We knew before we booked this hotel that there was a nightclub right underneath so we were prepared for some noise.

The rooms are very nice and clean. Furnished nicely with lovely decorations. Bathroom also nice but shower water pressure not the best and not the hottest but luke warm, which after a day sunbathing can be quite handy haha!

All in all we would recommend Rico's for anyone wanting to be smack bang in the centre of the action!

Well I have stayed at Rico's hotel now on two occasions and continue to be impressed. The location is brilliant and he deluxe rooms are great with an evn better price.

Only a stones throw from Soi Bangla which is even better.

Service was great, rooms always clean and tidy and noise is minimal. ( noise may be greater in different oops due o the nightclub next door) I was in 208 so no complaints

It go back to Phuket again, I will be staying at Rico's for sure

We stayed a week there and really enjoyed the hotel. Clean, friendly staff, nice big and stylish rooms and best location! Near the beach, near the shopping area and near nightlife and restaurants! Perfect place!
We will definitely come again!

This was my final stop in Patong during my honeymoon and i would stay here again. Rico's is a simple hotel, clean has great service and is located in a great location. You literally walk outside the hotel and in 1 minute you are on Bangla Road.
The wifi in the hotel was good, something that other 4-5 star hotels didnt provide complimentary. The manager of the hotel Mr. Kent was great and welcoming.
I only recommend that the rooms and bathrooms get cleaned better as i found some ants and insects on the floors in the bathroom and bedroom but its ok didnt bother me.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet place this isnt the hotel for you as there is a disco beside the hotel and they...

We booked this hotel through AirAsiaGo who are partnering with Expedia. We manage to get a good deal of flight and accommodation at Rico’s Hotel. We are a bit sceptical about the hotel as it was offered at quite low rate considering its location near to Bangla road. Anyway, we arrived at the hotel in early morning. We approached the front desk and they assisted us with keeping our luggage till the check in which is at 2pm. When we back after exploring the nearby places, our room were ready so we got into our rooms. The room is okay size and clean. We have requested for additional bed which has been arranged accordingly. It was FOC. There is a TV in the room with 85 channels catering to anyone from all parts of the world! There is a mini fridge, supply of mineral water, towels, toiletries and wardrobe to keep your clothes. There is a lift in this hotel. The toilet is on average size but it was clean. We didn’t spot any dirt anywhere although some part of the room looks a bit tired / old. There is free Wi-Fi throughout the whole hotel which was awesome! We had a little bit problem with the air conditioner however the staff attended to it promptly. They are friendly, helpful and were courteous throughout our stay there. The location of the hotel is fantastic as it is right off the Bangla road. You will need to walk about 1 minute to reach Bangla road. Although it is close to the nightlife, it is not noisy at night. This hotel is suitable for any age group. You can reach to Patong beach or Jung Ceylon shopping mall in few minutes’ walk. There a lots of restaurants nearby to cater to your taste bud, depending whether its local or international cuisine. Overall we are very happy with the hotel! Good job Rico’s Hotel!

Location of the hotel = 10/10

Bang center of bangla road, Patong -- one of the most happening places in the town
Patong Beach is just < 100 mts away from the room at Rico's.
Shopping mall | Restaurants are < 50 mts away.
Airport is around 50kms away (taxi cost <700 bhat)

Hotel environment inside out = 9/10

Quite Neighbourhood, even though this hotel is bang center of the most happening place (Bangla street is a all nighter street where people throng till morning 5am)

Hotel is kept quite nice rooms were spacious and lounge is in the ground floor with LIFT facilities. (recommended for families and all aged people)

Hotel has FREE 24/7 15mbps WI-FI (very much necessary for skype calls back home!)

Staff is very friendly and helped us in getting us a free map of phuket and made sure we knew the key locations in patong region and phi phi islands (also arranged our cab back to the airport and also a day trip to phi phi islands for very competitive price than outside travel agents)

The room itself: 10/10

Was just as expected of a budget hotel, with 29" CRT tv (old fashioned but was fun)

Had a Small Fridge (with small freezer to make ice cubes!!)

3 bottles (600ml) of water everyday (one per person)

Three individual cots (its a 2 person room but since we had extra 1 person we had an extra cot. Surprise!!)

LOCKER facility! so that you can keep your valuables inside (guess this is a standard across all hotels in Thailand)

Shower was good with hot and cold water for bathing.

nice big wardrobe to keep our clothes

Dry cleaning facility for 60 bhat per 1 kg of clothes.

Airconditioned room with Remote

Best room for the price and really quite room for the kinda activity happening outside.

Overall = 9/10

Recommended for the above reasons and much more. Awesome place to stay

9/10 cos the price do not include breakfast (we generally used to get up around 11am cos of all nighter street walk and we use to have bread butter jam purchased from local super market {7/11})

Room Tip: our room number was 104 in 1st floor which was a delux room which was away from the road. very quite...
