We stayed here for 2 nights, we booked on a whim without even looking at the place. As we drove through Phuket after spending a week on Koh Phi Phi we were a little bit disappointed since it looked like a crazier version of Magaluf. However, we turned up at the hotel and we were very pleasantly surprised. The staff were very friendly, catering to all our needs, professional and quick. Our room was great, actually one of the best we stayed in whilst in Thailand - very spacious, really comfortable king size bed, TV (no remote though and buttons were broken), and a safe. The bathroom was very clean and I actually felt clean coming out the shower for the first time since in Thailand, alhough the kitchen tiles with fruit on the walls did make me wonder! The balcony wasn't the best - it was basically a little room with a sliding window rather than a balcony but still it did the job- we didnt spend an awful lot of time in the hotel. The food was nice - we tried room service twice and once the lady came up to our door (3rd floor) and asked us to come and collect it. I thought it was very strange - it is room service after all. However - this did not put us off. I would most defiantly stay here again. The location was perfect- no noise at all yet minutes walk from the centre of everything.

Five of us stayed here in two rooms and found it an amazing time. The location is great - it is on a quiet street just off the main drag, so it is still super close to everything. The staff were amazing - they were helpful and hilarious.

We really enjoyed our stay at Bodega. The rooms were good, the service was fantastic and we had a great time. They helped us with everything and got us a ride to the airport for half of what it should've cost.

The location was nice, down a quiet street but near the beach and mall.

The wireless internet was not working hardly at all the entire time we were there so it was disappointing that we couldn't call family on Christmas.

Overall we really enjoyed our stay at Bodega and would definitely recommend it!

I visited Phuket with a couple of friends. Being on a shoe string budget, we decided to stay the bodega. We were apprehensive of the quality, but were surprized on reaching the place. The hotel is a small little place, right off the most happening street in phuket. You are exrtemely close (walkable) to the nightlife of phuket, yet far enough to be away from the noise for a peaceful sleep.

The rooms are not luxurious, nor are they intended to be. It is extremely good value for money. what you get is clean rooms, a working air conditioner, and free wifi. .The owner is an extremely cheerful guy, and helped us pick the best of everything in Phuket. The breakfast (though paid) is amazing value too.

the rest of the staff is also very helpful. All in all, it makes for a very comfortable stay. for people on a budget, there cant be a better place to stay. If you are looking for luxury, look elsewhere and be prepared to spend accordingly.

Beds were dirty upon arrival (hair, blood stains, pubic hair, other dirt) and shower very smelly in our private room accross the street. There was no complementary water, room service NOT everyday (they only came the 3rd day) as advertised on website. On the 3rd day there was almost 12 hours NO water (incl. toilet) in all the rooms opposite the streets. Having stayed in 20+ hostels the last 3 months I can firmly say that this was the very worst. People in dorms were no backpackers but drunks.

Our trip in Thailand was distrastrous to say the least, but the guys at Bodega made our trip worthwhile, the staff (ram, ra, amann and all the crew) were extremely helpful and friendly and saved us on numerous times. Close to the famed bangalore road and patong beach i recommend anyone looking for a fun but also chill environment to stay here. Defintely worth it!! We felt really well looked after!

Love and miss all the guys there! :)
