“Great location, exceptionally clean!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 May 2012

Great little hotel at a budget price. Clean, comfortable and in a great location. The staff were very helpful. A little difficult to find as the signage is not big but worth the hunt! Rooms were small but everything you need. Light breakfast provided and free wi fi available. I was travelling alone and felt safe and secure.

I had seen this hotel before when I was in Phuket and was curious to see what it was like. After reading favorable reviews of it I decided to see for myself. I like the location as it is near everything in Patong, Jungceylon Shopping Mall, the beach and Bangla Road ( Party Road). The hotel itself is small but is clean and very nice. The room I had was small but that was fine by me as all I needed was a place to lay my head. I'm not one those who have to have a big room and all the trimmings so I booked the smallest room that they had to offer. Like I said, it was clean and comfortable. Be aware that you're near the busy main street heading to the mall ( I can never remember the street names) there will be a noisy evening that you will have to deal with. But it shouldn't be a problem as most of the time you will be out of the room anyway. I never got a chance to sample their breakfast as I was never able to get up before it closed. You have free use of a computer down in the lobby if you don't have your own which is good to check up on email if need be. I liked the location because of the fact that it was within walking distance of everything and I liked getting the exercise and it was just on the outskirts of all the bars and noise that can go on into the night. All in all, a good place to lay your head while you're out seeing the sights of Phuket Thailand,

stayed at a resort last year with girlfriends but wanted something different this year with my husband. great place to stay. close to beach, bangla road and junkcelon shopping plaza. Doesn;t look like much from the street- not easy to find as signage is right up the top on outside of building, but once inside, a different story. Staff extremely accomodating and friendly, had booked a double bed and was upgraded to a king size bed at no extra charge, which was beautiful had our own balcony that overlooked the street, bar downstairs next door a bit noisy, but nothing too bad. the girl on the tour desk outside hotel- very good. we booked our tours with her, also very friendly. Pool on roof small, but beautiful. with great views. most guests used the beach, so had it to ourselves. when we didn't wander down to the beach-short walk. continential breakfast included in price. endless supply of food from 7.00-11.00. AND 24 hour coffee facility downstairs which big resorts don't even have.!!!!
We found NO COMPLAINTS with accomodation and would recommend this hotel to anybody that wanted a thai style hotel which only has 20 rooms and service is extremely personal.all facilities were excellent, hotel and rooms very clean. my husband would like to return to that hotel again next year.

Stayed here for songkran and it was excellent! Good location, clean room-- what more could you ask for? The street is a bit noisy but you're in the middle of all the action, so bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. Breakfast is simple, just cereal, fruit, bread kind if thing, but hey-- it's free. Lastly, the wifi signal is excellent :)

My husband and I stayed here for 5 days during our trip to Thailand. The hotel is centrally located near many different restaurants and shops. It is also a short 2 minute walk to the beach.
The hotel is spotless with well appointed rooms. We stayed in a room with king bed that had a small balcony off of it. The room was quite modern and very clean. Everyday when our room was cleaned it was also restocked with 4 complementary bottles of water.
The hotel is a bit of a distance from the airport but it was super easy to catch a shuttle for about 150 bhat or $5 US. The hotel is also within a 5-ten minute walk of Bangla road, a popular and busy nightspot.
Breakfast offered at the hotel was minimal but quite sufficient. Coffee, tea, cereal, toast with jjam, peanut butter, nutella etc, fresh fruit and yogurt. Staff are helpful and courteous, most of them speak OK English.
My only advice would be to be forewarned that Patong beach area is a crazy spot. Prepared to be bombarded by people asking you to buy things, get a massage etc. if you are looking for a quiet/relaxing time on the beach you may want to try another area of Phuket. The beaches are very busy and crazy in this area. Not to worry though, the hotel is situated in such a spot that it was quiet in our room!

My partner and I stayed for a week at the Album Hotel. We were booked in for diving for the week and we really enjoyed staying at the Album. The breakfast is a continental breakfast with cereal, juice, coffee, tea, fruit, boiled eggs, fresh toast, all different spreads, cheese and croissants (packet ones so not too nice). We really enjoyed our fresh breakfast everyday. The eggs are delicious and the coffee good enough for espresso. The staff are friendly and the location to everything is within walking distance (Jungceylon, patong beach, markets, Bangla road). The roof top pool is great and there are also sunbeds up there if you can handle the heat. The only thing that lets down the Album is that the rooms could have been slightly cleaner. Started clean and got progressively worse.
