“Very good value...!!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 August 2009

This is indeed a nice hotel, central location, just 5min walk to beach and shopping mall.
The hotel itself is new, modern, and sylish.

Positives;
Very clean
Central in Patong
Positive and very friendly staff (thank you)
Good looking hotel
New
Free wireless internet, and free acess in lobby
Tv, and free dvd rental
Splash pool on the roof, and sunbeds

Negatives;
Construction works at building next to hotel, very loud in the mornings
Awful pillows and beds

But all in all, I would definitly stay here again! I give it 5stars, but only because it is a cheap stay. If this was an expencive hotel, it would only get 4 stars.
Breakfas btw is ok, but not too wide selection.

The decor at this place was modern with a quirky edge. Very clean rooms. They provided a decent breakfast with fresh fruit and great coffee. They also have drinks and snacks available all day to take at your leisure. The staff here is extremely helpful and very warm. I was here over the New Years and that had a cocktail hour for the guests, it was very thoughtful of them. Good location, you are able to walk easily to the main strip of Patong but are away from all that noise, which is nice as well. The beach is about 5 min walk from the hotel, although they do provide a shuttle. Would def stay at this place again.

I stayed the Tique last June 2009 before I moved my accomodation to the Twinpalm during my summer holiday. There are too many things to say here:

1. Location: the edge of Patong center and it is a perfect place to walk around and enjoy what Pathong provides and, at same time, great place to rest the nights without too much noisy.

2. Price: Most are intersted; for me it was raining season and it didn't hurt me at all. AT the end, I felt lucky to find this small beautique hotel, I might say.

3. Staffs and management: They recognized everytime I entered and left the hotel and they were always smile and kind. Don't forget the breakfast. It wasn't fancy though, it feed you in the morning with a great coffee machine. One example; the last day of my stay, I checked out at early morning because I had to go Phi-Phi tour. I left my luggage at hotel lobby. When I came back, I was very tired with high tide and all day-snorkeling and walking. And I had to go to other part of Phuket, Surin beach for just getting relaxed for several days instead of touring Phuket. They kindly allowed me to use a room at the first floor for taking shower and some rest before I leave to the Twinpalm. I was touched very much. Maybe it is nothing but a service. Think about that they have to claean the room again and all towels I used considering the size of small cozy hotel.

4. Others: Color and texture of the hotel is unique, which I like that very much. It is not a costly beautique hotel in the NYC or any other fancy places in the world. But, I definitely say it is its own 'cozy' and 'beautique' hotel!!! And don't forget the loop top pool. It is small but it is enough to cool you down and makes romantic moody night in or around the pool.

Thanks for your service and I hope to see you again, The Tique!!

We were surprised to find this gem of a hotel in the midst of the maelstrom that is Patong. The Tique is a wonderfully stylish boutique hotel with the most comfortable beds in Thailand. The Tique is located conveniently for both the beach and the late-night markets. The markets are a great place to eat out in the evening. We loved the playful and stylish decoration throughout, from the unique stylings of the rooms to the intimate breakfast bar. The best thing about The Tique is definitely the friendly, attentive and welcoming staff who were always on hand to make sure that we felt looked after. We look forward to returning there soon.

The Tique is a lovely little boutique hotel. the staff are warm, friendly and very accomodating. The place itself is really cute and they have everything you need - free WIFI (and a computer at the reception if you need it), simple breakfast with great coffee most important!), free flow of juices and water in the fridge - you just help yourself, and best of all - the rooms are CLEAN and spotless. It really is a gem in the heart of crowded, noisy, bustling patong.

the owner is really nice too. and if i ever go back to patong, i'll definitely be staying at the tique.

After several days in Bangkok, The Tique was an oasis from the madness.

It is evident that every aspect of the business has been carefully considered and executed. The room was lovely, clean and functional. The bathroom was a bit compact but the shower was powerful and actually hot.

The wifi was sufficient to support streaming from the BBC and totally reliable, There is a terminal in reception for people without laptops - or ones that work.

Comp. breakfast and afternoon tea were a nice touch and a gracious addition. As was the unlimited bottles of water and beach towels

The plunge pool and loungers on the roof are a bit of an extra and a great way to cool down from the equatorial sun.

The terrace rooms have accessible balconies but the windows of the standard rooms are a bit small. The only negative is the noise due to single glazing and a busy road junction. Take earplugs.

The hotel is well located for the beach, restaurants and nightlife.

Patong was all a bit sleezy for me, but the Tique was my refuge and is totally recommended.

We stayed here for two nights en route to an island near phuket. I have to say that patong is SO grotty and we wouldn't have stayed there if we didnt have to but the tique made it bearable. It is not somewhere you would want to stay for more than a couple of days tho, as the hotel is quite small and the pool is more like a rooftop spa but for a couple of days, its a really cute, clean place in a good central location. Out of all the hotels we stayed in (including luxury ones) the tique had the best little extras which made the experience really nice. There was always free juice, yoghurt and fruit in the fridge for us to have. Internet was free, as was a van which could take you to the other side of the town. We got it for a really good deal last minute but i think the full price is a little expensive, but then again so is everything else in patong.
