“Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed 21 December 2013

Boutique hotel located in Patong, about 3 mins walking to beach and 5 Mins walkiing to Bangala Road.
very cute interior and one of the cleanest we saw. hairdryer, bathrobe, umbrella, beach mat provided. continetnal breakfast also included. what I did not like about hotel was we stayed there 1 night because we were transiting to airport. upon check out, maid service said we stained the pillow case and had to either launder it or pay for dirty sheet.
having traveled extensively, I know alot of hotels in Asia try this scam on travelers Do Not pay when requested of this.
A - We did not pay and this put a bad taste in my mouth and changed my opion of hotel.
B - I know we did not dirty the sheet because, we basically had room to just shower and store our clothes. hardly even slept on bed.
BE AWARE OF THIS SCAM.

Room Tip: make sure you check before leaving that items are clean, naturally they should be cleaning themselve...

Clean rooms, friendly staff, big comfortable beds, with lots of big fluffy pillows. The major attractions are a short walk (couple blocks max). They also handle tours and car services. They get better rates than most of the tour booths on the streets.

The hotel was clean and the staff was very helpful. The room was big enough for me and my wife and the pool on the roof was fun. The breakfast was simple but enough. The WiFi was fast but I only got it on my room the last day, still I could get it on the roof or on the lobby. I would definitely stay in this hotel again, but I didn't like Patong that much to go again.

I was here with a friend for a girly vacation. LOVED the hotel. The decoration is hip & "Instagrammable", the staff are incredibly helpful and warm, the location is close enough to Bangla Rd (about 5mins walk) and the beach (2mins walk) without being in the middle of it all. I didn't really notice the noise from the school, but there was construction when we were there. None of the noise ever woke us, though. Maybe we're just deep sleepers, I don't know.

The only thing I was disappointed with was the lack of wi-fi in our room. We had to go down to the lobby to get wi-fi. Apart from that, we had a fantastic time staying here, and would definitely stay here again. Btw, there's a massage parlor that gives THE BEST Thai massages for cheaper than everyone else, and with no hanky-panky either - RelaxZen, which is right down the road (turn right from the hotel entrance, and just keep going till you find it).

Me and my wife stayed there last November for two nights. The hotel is well located and overall it has this design-ish feel to it, not quite there though. It is definitely an interesting place, but it doesn't have the luxurious note.
They're offering free wi-fi, got breakfast (not bad: fruits, toasts, yogurt), air-con, tv, hot watter, pretty much all you need. There were these very small ant-like bugs, moving in a line on one of the walls, but they didn't disturb us and we has a good night sleep.
The receptionists were very polite and helpful, they've helped us arrange a Phi-Phi trip at 11PM for the very next morning, which to be honest I was impressed by.
Overall: a decent place for a reasonable price.

We stayed at the album for three nights, great location, rooms are clean and very modern, the breakfast is simple but was good enough for us. The noise from the street is bearable, the pool was more like a cold jacuzzi but the hotel is right next to the beach, the TV had 1 or 2 english channels. As we were checking out the maid checked our room which is a normal procedure, we were waiting at the table for our transport until one of the staff approached us and said there was a towel missing. We opened our cases to show her we hadn't took it, she was saying it was a brown towel that we had stolen (the hotel only provides white towels) she was quite rude and was throwing a lot of accusations at us saying that we took it out the hotel and left it somewhere.

Room Tip: Ask for a room located at the back of the hotel, once you open the balcony door you can hear the buz...
